Beauty and the Beast sure does leave a lot of questions unanswered:
- How old was the prince when the enchantress cast a spell on him?
- Whatever happened to the enchantress, anyway?
- Did her supervisor file a complaint charging her with entrapment?
- How many years went by before Belle came to the castle?
- Why didn’t Belle ever ask the Beast how he became a beast? I mean, she was a reader and thinker. Wasn’t she the least bit curious?
- If the spell had not been broken, would the Beast have lived forever or just a regular human life span?
- Why couldn’t the Beast/prince read?
- Were charges filed in the incident of Gaston’s death?
- What kind of relationship did the Beast have with his new father-in-law, whom he had cruelly imprisoned?
I think we need a prequel.
