There exists linearity in the narrative between Beauty and the Beast and Wall-E. The aspect of love at first is very evident in both storylines. In most films, characters fall in love within minutes, often without even conversing (Tanner, Haddock, Schindler Zimmerman, and Lund, 2003). In both films, the love happens between two people of different personalities and physical outlook, but they fall in love just the same. In WALL-E, when Eve gets deployed from outer space to look for signs of life, Wall-E admires her, becomes drawn to her despite her harsh treatment at first and eventually woos her to love him the same way.
In Beauty and the Beast, despite lack of knowledge of Belle’ s behavior and character, the Beast accepts her into his home, feeds Belle, dresses her with the most expensive gifts and out-rightly falls in love with her. Belle, however, appreciates the Beasts actions, cares for him and sees Beast as a friend; however, the plot gets twisted when she fails to return after a week, the Beast gets sick of heartbreak and on her return, the Beast changes into the handsome prince that she always dreamed of.
Immediately she falls in love at first sight, accepts this handsome prince, and they lived happily ever after. Another aspect of Romantic fantasy and happily ever after is the aspect of marriage shortly after meeting a person. In Beauty and the Beast, Belle does not agree to Beasts proposal, but in the end, when he turns into a handsome prince, they get married almost immediately and live a magical life together forever after. The same is evident in WALL-E where the robots are shown at the end of the film holding hands to symbolize union after many years.
This reflects the human trait for settling together in marriage. This begins shortly after their reunion when Eve revives Wall-E’ s memory. Both stories have a feature that sparks the theme of love and happily ever after whereby in the case of Beauty of the Beast, the tears of Belle and her declaration of love saves him from death and the spell.
