BEAUTY AND THE BEAST Isn’t As Magical With Voldemort

A huge castle, magical curses, amazing creatures, and a man whose lack of love and empathy on the inside has physically manifested itself on the outside? It turns out Lord Voldemort and the Beast have way more in common than we might have realized, but, as this excellent crossover trailer proves, that doesn’t mean they both make for appealing love interests for Belle.

We first came across this expertly edited Harry Potter/Beauty and the Beast mashup at Entertainment Weekly, and it is the work of the great YouTube channel PistolShrimps. “Beauty and Lord Voldemort” seamlessly inserts the villain of Harry Potter into the new Disney trailer for their upcoming live-action adaptation, making the child once known as Tom Riddle the horrible monster looking to be saved by love, but without any of the Beast’s charm.

Turns out it is way easier to be dashing when you look like a giant human wolf instead of a big grey man snake, which is good to know if any vindictive witches or enchantresses ever place a curse on you and asks which form you prefer.

As sympathetic and heroic as Voldemort comes across here, it’s still unsettling to imagine him in such a role. It sort of makes Gaston–who, now that we think about it, is like a cross between Professor Lockhart and Lucius Malfoy–seem like the Harry Potter of this version.

Honestly though, we’d be perfectly fine with Emma Watson slipping back into Hermione’s robes and taking care of all of these issues herself, especially all the poor servants of the castle. We bet she still remembers her lessons from Transfiguration.
