Lumiere is one of the supporting characters in Beauty and the Beast. He is the Beast's maitre d' who became a candelabra during the Enchantress' curse on the castle. Sadly, he was flanderized until he redeems himself in the 2017 live action remake.
Why He's NOT the Candelabra We Know
- Similar to Belle and the Beast, Lumiere became an unfortunate victim of flanderization as he went from being a cheeky and intelligent Frenchman into a perverted womanizing jerk (See below)
- He is shown hitting on Chandeleria, which counts as very perverted.
- He and the other servants fail to get the Beast to control his temper.
- He is blamed by Plumette, who thought that he was having an affair with Belle.
- He and Cogsworth both acted like spoiled brats in "Mrs. Potts' Party", such as their preferences over music, flower and cake's flavors.
- He was a more likable character in the first two films and redeems himself in the live action remake, unlike Belle and the Beast.
- Jerry Orbach still did amazing as Lumiere.
