Disney recently updated Gaston with a new costume in the Disney theme parks.
The popular “Beauty and the Beast” villain now sports a darker red shirt, which looks more like his shirt design from the animated film. Gaston wears different boots and darker pants as well. Another noticeable difference is how Gaston wears less muscle padding. His new look seems less cartoonish than his previous outfit.
Seeing Gaston in person gave a better perspective for guests to judge the new look. Gaston looks more believable with the costume redesign, which is good since most face characters look natural in their attire. Personally, I prefer the new look since it looks more practical on a face character.
Gaston meets daily at his character spot in Fantasyland. He hangs at the wall outside of “Bonjour! Village Gifts”, which is just outside of his tavern (Gaston’s Tavern).
Gaston is always amusing to talk to at his character meeting spot in Fantasyland. Will you be seeing Gaston on your next Disney trip? Tell us your thoughts!
