Music Box, ’Beauty and the Beast’ — Lost Disney Characters

Lost disney characters Music Box
Disney

The music box was an enchanted object featured in early drafts of the ‘Beauty and the Beast’ script. He communicates only through music and was originally the character who stowed away with Belle when she leaves the castle to find her ailing father.

Like Peter Behn before him did for Thumper, Bradley Michael Pierce elevated the adorable teacup Chip from a throwaway gag to a major character. The story team looked for opportunities to feature Chip and gave the role of the stowaway to him. Aside from this, the music box just never worked well as a character. He was particularly hindered by the movie’s time period, which prevented him from playing many recognizable melodies. Although he lost his starring role, the music box is still briefly visible in the film and was featured in a Disney comic set before the movie.
