Our favorite tale as old as time could have looked very different! Today we get to share some of the little-seen concept art that was created by animators during the development stage of Beauty and the Beast. All of the characters went through some very drastic incarnations (Cogsworth was once a huge grandfather clock, Beast resembled a tall anteater) and we can’t wait to hear what you think. So take a journey with us to a village in France. We give you permission on this occasion to judge this concept art by appearances (though we assure you, it’s inner beauty is on point as well).
