Love, happiness, and good friends are priceless, right? Well, that’s not exactly true, especially if you’re like the transformed prince from Beauty and the Beast and have to replace a lot of expensive furniture after it’s all changed back into human form. And, you know, if you live in a castle.
It’s estimated the Beast’s nearly 60-room fairytale home would cost nearly $16 million ($15,881,205, to be specific), and sits on a whopping 90 acres of land, according to a video from Coinage, Time Inc.’s new personal finance video company.
Replacing Mrs. Potts and her teacup tyke, Chip, with a 60-piece Lenox West Chester china set would cost over $4,680. The inanimate equivalent of Fifi the feather duster (known as Plumette in the live-action remake) is a steal in this world, with a 32-inch ostrich feather duster coming in at a mere $40.
Replacing the iconic Lumière with two quality candelabras would cost nearly $7,000, which could also score you a pretty decent used car. Cogsworth the clock might be small, but he’s pricy — swapping him for an 18th-century pendulum clock could cost you over $11,000, which could more than cover a year’s worth of tuition at some state universities. And Belle’s wardrobe might be stunning, but a replacement 1760 wardrobe would cost just shy of $5,000.
The grand total these two would have to spend to maintain their swanky lifestyle? $27,548.66, which could also just buy us non-royals a house.
Disney’s new Beauty and the Beast opens in theaters this Friday.
