Princess of the day: Belle

  • Sherri Stoner was a body model for Belle as well as Ariel!
  • The dance between Belle and the Beast at the end is actually reused footage of Prince Phillip and Aurora, done because the production time was running out.
  • Her personality traits are listed as kind, accepting, brave, intelligent, independent, stubborn, protective, outspoken, bold, curious and imaginative.
  • Belle is the first princess to have a male┬ávillain.
  • Her name is french for ‘beautiful’, though she remains rather unaware of her beauty.
  • Her main ability comes from her intelligence and wit, proving to the Beast that she is not a pushover or afraid to stand up for herself. She is independent.
  • She shows viewers that beauty comes from within and that it’s not just appearance that matters.
