Then there's the mirror, the meaning of self-exploration, an instrument that can reveal the hidden truths in oneself no matter how hard you try to hide them. In this story, a way for the beast to find his true love and then by watching her at her most vulnerable, thereby loving her more because of it. It also provides away for him to communicate with the witch who put the curse on him. Which brings me to the biggest thing they excluded which was my favorite of the book: the fact that the witch was the maid who took care of our beast, the maid, who along with the blind tutor, provided him with the family he had always longed for. She didn't curse him out of revenge or indulgence, she cursed him because she truly cared for him and wanted him to have a better, richer life.
Last, there's our beauty. Lindy, played by Vanessa Hudgens. Who, in my opinion, was a bit more beautiful that what the part called for. The whole idea of Lindy was that she was considered a nobody in our beasts eyes, someone who he gave a rose to and didn't think twice about. It wasn't until he started viewing her in the mirror that he discovered her true beauty within. In the movie, he saw her, noticed her and was even entranced by her though he didn't want to admit it. Thus giving him somebody he was already falling for instead somebody he would have never fallen for in his former self.
