#anyone else seeing beauty and the beast set in india? #maybe magical realism during the time when India was under British rule #maybe even on the cusp of the first war of indian independence #oh oh and her father is a sepoy in the Bengal Army and rather than losing his fortune #he loses caste due to ritual pollution by travelling on a cramped freighter #so he goes off to help with the war of independence #and Beauty goes off to pray to Durga because Durga is fierce enough to protect her father in battle #but she stumbles upon Dawon #(Durga’s lion-tiger mount in Hindu mythology) #and Dawon bargains with her—if Beuaty can spend a year and a day in Dawon’s service; her father will return safely home and their caste … #will be restored #and Beauty loves her family and her father so she accepts #(spoiler alert; they fall in love) #…I really like this story
Another adaptation that isn’t related to the Disney movie, but I really love this concept :)

Who does this castle belong to?
Everything here belongs to me.
You sound like every other man. It’s pretty disappointing.
