Mrs. Beatrice Potts is a major character in the 2017 film adaption of Beauty and the Beast.

In this version, Mrs. Potts has a husband: a potter named Jean, who had forgotten about her and their son Chip as a result of the curse.

She is voiced and portrayed by Emma Thompson.




Role in the Film

Mrs. Potts is one of Beast's servants who was transformed into a teapot when under the curse. She has a son named Chip, who was transformed into a teacup.

During the spell, her husband Jean Potts forgot about her because the Enchantress blocked the villagers memories about the castle, but once the curse was broken, their memories returned, and Mrs. Potts was reunited with her husband.
