The Princess: Belle
The Original: Beauty And The Beast, which finds a beautiful girl seemingly destined to spend her life with a horrendous creature.
Who, as anyone who has seen the film (or read the story) knows, is really a charming prince in beast’s clothing and true love frees him. Oh, and in Disney’s version, the cutlery and furniture sing and dance.
The New Twist: The Beast Within. Belle is a feral girl discovered in the woods living with her slavering monster of a lover. But who's the real beast here?
The creature is seemingly keeping Belle prisoner, but when local townspeople try to separate them, Belle flies into a terrible rage, tearing the clockwork guts out of her butler and using it to strangle the first villager to step through the gates.
There is no chatty cutlery, but someone does get stabbed with a fork. Which sings a song entitled 'Be Our Victim', Nasty.
