The theme of beauty and the beast is that things arent always the way they seem; in other words, one should not be deceived by appearances for beauty lies within. One must rather try to look past wt the eye can see and look inside that person where his/her true personality is found( the beast seems ugly and hideous from the outside but when we tend to look from the inside hes sweet kindhearted and dear,, and on the contrary Gaston is a tall handsome person from the outside but truly hes empty-headed and hes the real beast that we should be scared of and avoided).. Other themes are the significance and power of love and how it changes human,, family sacrifice,, modesty(though the prince had everything his heart desired he was coarse,spoiled and arrogant who lacked modesty which lead to ruin his life by being enchanted and changing into a beast),, people change,,and more AND MOST IMPORTANTLY ONE SHOULD LEARN TO BE CALM AND CONTROL HIS/HER TEMPER..
In every single detail there's a theme and lesson to be learned..

"Beauty and the Beast" is it's own theme. No phrase better describes it. I suppose you could say that the theme is "Love is blind." But that phrase has also described people who are in love with despicable people and that love blinds them to the truth. "Beauty and Beast" says in one simple stroke, that Beautiful people can fall in love with Ugly people when that person has great inner beauty which is revealed through prolonged exposure.

The theme of beauty and the beast is basically like don't judge a book by it's cover. The beast originally is ugly, but under neath, he really is a nice, caring, type of guy.

Love, how basic everyday rights like going outside or interacting with people on an everyday basis is a privelage, real friendship, noticing the small things in life, appreciate what you do have tommorrow it could be gone, ect.
