Beauty and the Beast (2017)
- At "culinary cabaret", there is a musical snippet of "Wilkommen" from the musical Cabaret (1972).
- Lumière gets surrounded by an array of pink feather fans, a nod to the song "All I Care About is Love" from Chicago (2002) (which Bill Condon had worked on).
- When the featherdusters create a fountain, and Lumière dances underneath it, the title theme from Singin' in the Rain (1952) is heard.
- The finale contains an Indian-style setpiece (and a brief musical tone), an homage to the Indian musical number from Moulin Rouge! (2001) (which Ewan McGregor had worked on).
- The Indian castle model resembles Agrabah castle from Disney's Aladdin (1992).
Additionally, all of the servants are in shadows, as if it to remind us that they are about to become shadows of their former selves.
- The concept of the household objects slowly losing their mobility, comes from the stage musical.
- As in the original fairy tale, Belle's father is caught by the Beast when he attempts to take a rose for his daughter, instead of Beast accusing him of trespassing. This, in turn, leads to Belle's offer to trade places with her father, as it was she who asked him to bring her a rose.
- The Beast's look, and much of the Castle's decorations, resemble those in Beauty and the Beast (1946).
- Maestro Cadenza is this film's version of Forte, the sentient musical instrument from Beauty and the Beast: The Enchanted Christmas (1997). In this film, he is a far more heroic and jovial character.
- The Wardrobe is renamed Madame Garderobe and is revised to be Cadenza's wife.
- Sultan the dog is renamed Froufrou and is owned by Garderobe (and gets turned into a piano bench instead of a footstool)
- Lumière's love interest, the feather duster, is named Plumette in this film; she was unnamed in the 1991 film, but she was named Babette in the musical, and Fifi in Belle's Magical World (1998)).
- The coat rack Chapeau was previously an unnamed enchanted character from the 1991 film.
- Chef Bouche, the palace chef who was turned into a stove, is renamed Cuisinier.
- The Triplets were named Paulette, Claudette, and Laurette in the animated film. Here they are renamed Eliana, Elise, and Eloise.
