Concerto per flautino, 2 cantatas, trio sonata La Folia, Marcello:
She's nothing like the rest of us, Yes, diff'rent from the rest of us is Belle! She is an intelligent and undeniably beautiful young woman whose traits are looked down upon in her small French village.
As a result of her status as an outcast, Belle yearns to break out of the small-minded community to experience a life of adventure. Belle is also the fifth official member of the Disney Princess line-up.
Contents Background Official Description Far-off places, daring sword fights, a prince in disguise, Belle longs for so much more than a "normal life" in this small, provincial town - a town where girls don't aspire to more than marrying well.
Still, adventure is the last thing on her mind when she rides her horse, Philippe, into the forest to find her beloved father, who is missing. Thinking only of her father, she makes a bargain with a Beast who holds her father captive in his castle.
Though the Beast now holds the key to Belle's prison, he doesn't have the key to her heart, and her yearning spirit won't be kept prisoner.
But after he risks his own life to save hers, she begins to see past his appearance. She realizes that deep inside him there might be something more than she - or he - has ever dreamed.
Development When production first started on Beauty and the Beast, Belle's characterization was initially slightly closer to that of the original tale, being slightly timid yet also caring. In the first draft, she also had to contend with two elder sisters who, similar to in the original tale, utterly hated her because she got more attention than them, especially regarding potential suitors.
In the second draft, she largely retained the traits from the first draft, although she also had a sister named Clarice whom, unlike her sisters in the first draft, genuinely cared for Belle's well being as well as a snobbish aunt named Marguerite who would have been the movie's equivalent of Belle's wicked sisters from the original tale and first draft.
However, after the storyboard reel was presented, then-Disney Chairman Jeffrey Katzenberg ordered for it to be rewritten from scratch, both due to viewing it as too dark and dramatic, and because he envisioned a Broadway-like film with a "feminist twist" to the original tale.
To accomplish this, he hired Linda Woolvertonwho at the time had just started film screenwriting and her only other experience with Disney was writing some episodes of their various Saturday Morning cartoons.
Woolverton based Belle on Katharine Hepburn's role of Jo March from the film adaptation of the book, "Little Women", and avoided using the Jean Cocteau film as a template for Belle and the film, even going as far as to avoid seeing the film.
She also gave Belle a love of literature to show her open-mindedness. She also made sure to make Belle a feminist in order to have her stand apart from Ariel in The Little Mermaidas she didn't want "another insipid princess", taking notes from the women's movement to create her character.
Paige O'Hara requested that Belle, similar to Jerry Orbach's handling of Lumiere in the same film, possess a French accent, although unlike Orbach, Disney refused the request. Personality Belle reading a book. Belle has gained a significant amount of intelligence over the years due to her love of books, which have provided her with an elevated vocabulary, an active imagination, and an open mind.
She is very confident and outspoken in her opinions and seldom likes being told what to do. Despite all this, she doesn't have very many friends. Her smarts and free-thinking attitude make her stand out from her fellow townspeople, who regard her as a little odd behind her beauty.
Unlike most characters in the film, Belle isn't concerned about her or others' appearances and is able to look past how people appear and see into their hearts. This is how Belle manages to break the Beast's curse and restore love and laughter to the castle.Wednesday, August State of the YouTube music economy A major turning point for all parties Post from Music Industry Blog; New Nashville-based streaming service seeks to be craft beer for music industry.
