But Beauty and the Beast does not just refer to Disney. There are other films to which the adaptation pays tribute. Like the scene from the beginning where Belle runs to the top of a green hill with her blue dress. It was directly inspired by the musical The Sound of Music , which contains a really similar scene with Julie Andrews .
Finally, another musical comedy also has the right to its reference in The Beauty and the Beast : that of Chicago ! Yes, when Lumière makes his little dance number during the song “Be Our Guest” , there is a moment when he makes a special pose and where he is then “backlit” . Well, it came out straight from the song “Cell Block Tango” from Chicago !
