Belle is one of the most beautiful of the Disney Princess characters and first appeared in the Disney animated feature film ‘Beauty and the Beast’ that premiered on November 13, 1991.
Like many of Disney's fairy tales, the story of Beauty and the Beast was originally based on the traditional fairy tale titled ‘Beauty and the Beast’ by the French author Gabrielle-Suzanne Barbot de Villeneuve and later abridged and republished by French author Jeanne-Marie Leprince de Beaumont. The story of Beauty and the Beast is centered on a beautiful woman that is kept in a castle by a monstrous beast.
Beauty and the Beast was the first and only animated feature film to be nominated for an Academy Award for Best Picture and received Academy Awards for Best Music for Original Score and Best Music for Original Song for the song ‘Beauty and the Beast’ featured during the famous ballroom dance sequence with Belle and the Beast. The film is one of the best known animated Disney films and its success has seen the adaption to a long running stage musical and other media adaption's featuring Belle in storybooks, comic books, video games, ‘Disney on Ice’ shows and direct to video releases that have included ‘Beauty and the Beast: The Enchanted Christmas’ and ‘Belle's Magical World’.
Belle is a true beauty, she is sweet natured and intelligent and has long brown hair and brown eyes. She wears a sparkly yellow ballroom gown and often is shown holding the rose that is the symbol of love throughout the film. Belle remains a favorite Disney Princess that little girls love.
