Gaston Disney character
Gaston is the main antagonist of Disney's 1991 animated feature film Beauty and the Beast. He is the local hero of a small French village. He owns a large tavern where he and the villagers drink and talk. Inside, there is a large portrait of himself along with trophies from his hunt.
Gaston declaring his intent to marry Belle and then he started pursuing she. But Gaston's remarks about women reading and thinking drive Belle away from him. He bribes the owner of the local asylum, Monsieur D'Arque, to threaten to throw Maurice into the asylum in order to pressure Belle into marrying him. Gaston is aided in his actions by Lefou.
Gaston is the opposite of the Beast. While the Beast is an ugly monster based on his appearance, he is actually innocent and truly cared for Belle; Gaston, on the other hand, while being superficially handsome on the outside and praised by the populace, is actually egotistical and male-chauvinistic. Gaston is very similar to Brom Bones from The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad and Sir Kay, a minor character, from The Sword in the Stone.
He is voiced by Richard White.
