\n\n\n[[WMG: Gaston has mind-control powers]] Very subtle ones, and it's doubtful if he knows he has them, but that seems to be the case. Why does the village worship the ground he walks on if he treats them like dirt? Because they're being influenced into doing so! His powers don't work on Belle or Maurice, perhaps because they're too smart, or maybe because they're "odd." Further evidence can be seen with the villagers going along with his despicable plans. And take a look at Monsieur D'Arque. When Gaston tells him what he wants to do with Maurice, his response is a genuinely horrified "that's despicable!" But once Gaston's influence takes hold, he pulls an immediate about-face. Let's not forget that Gaston managed to convince the townsfolk of the Beast's existence and malevolence, when he himself was doubting it not long before. As the final bit of evidence, nobody seems particularly upset about Gaston's death, because his control died with him.

* That's great indeed; at the very least the part about him acting stupid still makes sense while standing on its own.

[[WMG: The wolves were indirectly Gaston's fault.]] He killed all the deer and other prey animals in the forest, leaving the wolves with nothing to eat. This made them desperate enough to go after humans that they would normally avoid. No one screws up an ecosystem like Gaston!

[[WMG: Chip, as a human, had a broken arm that didn't heal quite right]] Not enough to cause him major problems (he's a perfectly functional cup) but still not completely fixed. ** Either that or he has/had a physical disability that does not significantly impact functioning, but showed up as a cosmetic flaw when the castle's residents became enchanted objects. Note that when he turns into a human, we see him riding the dog, and his mother picks him up immediately afterward. Maybe the "chip" is a club foot or slight trouble walking.

[[WMG: Belle and Maurice live in the village due to the death of Belle's mother.]] Belle cameos in ''The Hunchback of Notre Dame.'' As mentioned on the WMG page for that film, it's possible that she and her family once lived in Paris, but Frollo expelled them because he considered Maurice's inventions and Belle's intelligence dangerous. In addition to this, it could be that Belle's mother was considered dangerous as well. Maybe Frollo lusted after her the same way he did Esmeralda. Or maybe Belle's mother was a healer, but Frollo considered her herbal remedies "witchcraft." At any rate, Frollo somehow caused or exacerbated the death of Belle's mother, so she and Maurice got out of Dodge, only to sadly find they were still outcasts in the new village. [[WMG: Belle's family is Protestant.]] If this is true, and if it is also true they once lived in Frollo's Paris, they would have been forced to flee because they would be considered anti-Catholic. To add, Belle seems too educated to buy into a version of any religion that says scaring and oppressing people is the way to gain control over them. [[WMG: Belle knows about Quasimodo.]] It's possible that she was a very little girl when Quasimodo was born. She may have grown up hearing about Quasimodo, the same way the children around Clopin's performance stall did. Naturally, she and Quasi never would have met, but she would have thoroughly appreciated his story. This may have stirred compassion in her--a compassion that became deeper as she got older and was later bestowed on the Beast, who looks scary but is truly a prince. [[WMG: Belle has a young aunt or an older cousin who is her doppelganger.]] If nothing else, this explains her ''Hunchback of Notre Dame'' cameo--notice we see her adult character in that brief scene. It's not really Belle--it's a relative who remained in Paris. Or... [[WMG: The "Belle cameo" is really Belle's mother.]] As noted, Frollo either caused or exacerbated her death.

[[WMG: Belle and Cinderella exist in the same universe, just different eras.]] Belle references Prince Charming at least twice during the movie--in her IAmSong and its reprise, no less. It's quite possible that like most of us, she knows and loves the Cinderella story and probably considers it a favorite out of the many books she reads. The key is, she has a special relationship with the story because the real Cinderella and Prince Charming were rulers during Belle's childhood. Belle has grown up in a country and century reliant on the monarchy, and she probably idolized the benevolent king and servant-turned-queen. This possibility gets even more poignant when you remember Belle and her father are considered outcasts in their village, therefore lesser people.

* In fact, in addition to protecting the castle, they could have also been there to arrange for the curse to break. After all, they drove Maurice to the castle, and the gate unlocked itself to let him in. Maurice getting there was the catalyst for the curse breaking. So in addition to keeping people in, they're also the agents of ContrivedCoincidence the curse used to resolve itself.
