Because he was not like all the other princes in the Disney movies. He had flaws, inside and out. He wasn't perfect from the beginning and that's what makes his character thêm believable and real to me. He had to learn about himself through Belle and also learn how to tình yêu himself as well as another. I really wish he would have stayed a beast to be honest. I was glad that that curse was broken, but still I always thought he looked better as a beast.
