This girl is beautiful, kind, intelligent and is able to see the true beauty within
Bonjour! OK, I know some of you have been waiting for this one, so I'll do my best to make it alright.
Beforehand I spoke about the four before them - Snow White, Cinderella, Aurora and Ariel. Even though I'm not very fond of Cinderella, writing about her and defending her made me appreciate her more. All of the princesses have wonderful qualities, it's just a shame that people seem to remember the bad ones instead. Or make up bad ones.
Belle is my favourite. (I love Elsa too though). She's intelligent, beautiful and completely flawless in my opinion. So I had a bit of a problem with reading some of the issues that people had with her. (And there weren't many issues, which was good).
One was that some people believe she is too plain. Both her personality and her looks. To me Belle is probably in the top five in the looks department, but if anybody has actually watched her movie, then you'll know that it's about what's on the inside, not on the outside that counts. Yes she has brown hair and pink lips and no make-up, but this was done on purpose. She's not as flashy as some of the other princesses, because it's reflecting on the message of her movie. I find her to be very beautiful, as I do most other princesses, and I don't understand why people find her personality "plain" or "nothing special".
This is a big question mark for me.
As I mentioned before, the movie is about what's on the inside and not the outside. I think her personality is probably one of the most developed and outstanding in the disney princesses. She reads for god's sake and is depicted at being intelligent. (And she must be pretty strong too, because she manages to lift a beast onto a horse). She is kind, devoted to her father, compassionate, intelligent, beautiful and her goal isn't to get married. How is that nothing special? How? She's the most intelligent, I believe, and she sees true beauty within. I think that's a quality that is incredibly special.
Some people think her stupid because she stays with an abusive... beast. She was the prisoner, just saying. She made a promise and she kept it. And the beast wasn't abusive. He threw tantrums but tantrums and abuse are very different things. He also saved her life. She was going to leave, but she turned around and helped him, and then got to see past all of the harsh appearance.
And others hate her because she is perfect. ashjvsiygush;jsgbkjgs[y9pk;bjfds'i
People scream down the other princesses' throats because they have flaws, and then scream at Belle because she is flawless.
Doesn't make sense.
Overall Belle has the most outstanding personality and her story isn't about getting the man. It's about the beauty within. That's why she's a little plainer in the looks department. I don't understand some of the issues people have with Belle at all.
I just watched the movie Aladdin, and my admiration for Jasmine rose. I read that people find her to act really bitchy and I did not find that at all. She used to be my favourite princess, probably when I was about four or five. (Then it was Ariel purely because she was a mermaid and then Belle because of the above and now Belle and Elsa because Elsa is a lot like me and has bloody ice powers).
Jasmine is depicted as being one of the most independent princesses. Nobody would describe her as being "sweet" or "cute" like Snow White or Rapunzel. She's fiery and out there. I admire that. But she's also kind. She said "thank you" and "I'm sorry" and helped a little kid. Bitchy? I think not.
Yes she stands up for herself, which I love. She says that she is not "a prize to be won", which is kind of in contrast to some of the other disney princesses. She also defends Aladdin. I don't see her as a spoilt, selfish, snobby brat at all, but rather smart, kind and independent.
The only issue I have with her is her tiny, tiny body. How can she even fit all of her organs in there? She is so skinny!
But in conclusion she's defensive, beautiful, smart, kind and independent. She's not to be messed with - go girl!
So there you go. Belle was a bit hard, as there weren't many issues with her (thank goodness). But next time I'll be doing Pocahontas and Mulan, even though they're well liked. Feel free to check out my other articles where I defended Snow White, Cinderella, Aurora and Ariel.
Hope you enjoyed reading and au revoir!
She's considerate, smart and independent and some people believe she is a snobby brat
