Jean Potts is the husband of Mrs. Potts and the father of Chip Potts in Disney's live action adaption of Beauty and the Beast.

Role in the film

Because of the Enchantress' curse on the Beast's castle, Jean's memories of the Beast and his servants, along with the memories of the rest of the villagers was erased, making him forget his wife and son. He lives alone in the village working as a potter.

Jean is first seen in the village asking Belle about where she's headed, and responds that the book she has read sounds boring after she tells him what it's about.

Jean is then later seen in the tavern when LeFou is trying to cheer up Gaston after Belle rejected his proposal. He witnesses Maurice's claims about the Beast, and like the rest of the town, believes him to be crazy.

Jean is one of the villagers who participates in the attack on Beast's castle. It is there, after the curse is lifted, his memory is restored and he is reunited with his wife and son.

Trivia

  • His appearance during the song "Belle" replaces Belle's conversation with the baker in the original film, despite the baker making an appearance right before Mr. Potts is first seen.
  • Like Sir Francis Tremaine, in Disney's live action adaption of Cinderella, he is revealed to be the previously unknown spouse of a main character. However, he is still alive during the events of his film while Sir Francis dies in Cinderella.
