Gaston from Beauty and the Beast caused quite a stir this month. After Disney released the live-action remake of the classic movie, fans have been speculating about how the character would be portrayed. Many were hoping for a more sympathetic version of Gaston, while others hoped he would remain the same as in the original cartoon.
However, despite the expectations of the fans, Gaston was actually quite different in the remake. His character arc was much more fleshed out, with a backstory that explained why he was so desperate to win over Belle’s affections.
