What I think Beauty and the Beast could’ve benefited from is an epilogue scene, something taking place after the happily-ever-after. Show Belle becoming a teacher or an inventor or something. Yeah, she’s gonna be a princess but she can still have a job, so let’s see her teaching other children to read, like she was doing with that one villager girl, or distributing her laundry invention to the washerwomen. The movie made a lot of how girls in the village are mistreated and left uneducated and that never went anywhere, no-one fixed it. Why not show her fixing it? :(

(There’s other things an epilogue could’ve done too! It could’ve shown Lefou happy with his new boyfriend, and Lumiere and Plumette getting married, and all sorts of fun stuff.)
