It was pretty much straight from the Disney version(s?) – though I can’t remember if there are significant differences between the two movies.
As I was watching, I started thinking about the story Goal. Was it about the everyone Obtaining freedom from his curse? Having a Future? No, the only thing that made sense was Becoming/Changing One’s Nature — everyone is affected by the Beast’s Changed Nature, and his “Becoming” a prince again. So that of course puts the OS in Psychology.
Other examples of Psychology:
The prince is dismissive the old woman/sorceress because he is repulsed by her appearance. This could be a Mind issue, but the point as presented is less about not being prejudiced against ugly people as it about not being an odious jerk and not being fooled by appearances — which sounds like Psychology to me. (Synopsis in Shmoop: “Turns out, he was rude to the wrong lady.”) She also puts a spell on the town, causing them to forget about the castle (Manipulation).
The only way to get out of the curse to convince someone else to fall in love with you (Psychology/Manipulation). (That’s a cynical way of putting it, sorry).
In the village, Gaston is the ultimate low-life manipulator, the kind of guy who surrounds himself with sycophants and tries to gaslight Belle into believing that she’s always been in love with him and pressure her to marry him (by staging a wedding in front of her house with the whole town watching! Spoiler: it doesn’t work).
In the castle, the servants are always trying to manipulate things so that Belle and the Beast fall in love.
Gaston gets a brilliant idea: if he can just convince the magistrate/authority guy to commit Belle’s father to the asylum, he’ll have leverage he can use on Belle!
When Belle shows the town that the Beast actually is real, Gaston manages to turn that around too and get the village to riot against the Beast!
OS Concern of Becoming:
Like I said, I think the whole story is about the Beast Becoming a prince again. This impacts everyone — Belle, the servants, the village etc.
If you think about it, the provincialism of the village isn’t really a problem for the villagers — it’s a problem for Belle, because she can’t stand living in a place like this (Mind). She has bigger dreams (Subconscious/Innermost Desires). The movement and shifting of these Desires (e.g. falling in love with the Beast) is her personal problem.
I think it’s pretty clear she’s Steadfast. She certainly grows, but doesn’t fundamentally change her worldview.
IC: Universe/Situation | Future
The Beast (and he fellow IC’s the servants) are pretty clearly stick in a bad Situation.
As for Future, I’m a little less certain on this, but the choice is implied by other choices so far. I guess it makes sense: if the Beast can’t figure this out before a certain point in the near future, he’ll be stuck in this state forever.
As always, this is the hardest for me, but Obtaining true love as the goal of relationship seems to work. Also the quads underneath — they have to learn things about each other, they have understandings and misunderstandings, things they do together — I think we could come up with examples that support all of these things either threatening the relationship or causing it to grow.
Oh, also I think it’s a clear Success/Good story.
