Hello! This is my first article and I hope you enjoy it. It's my ranking of Belle's outfits. I know this has been done before and I warn you my choices can be quite previsible. This list includes five gowns (four from the original movie and one from The Enchanted Christmas) and two cloaks.

7. Blue peasant dress

"This is... nice" - Madame de la Grande Bouche (musical)

Yes, it is. I like the shade of blue used and the neckline, but it is very plain. I prefer it with the apron, because it brings more variety in the coloring of the lower half.



6. Christmas gown

Again, it has nice coloring and...

Gaston's vain sister!!!
Gaston's vain sister!!!
Hi guys, I am not really sure whether or not Disney should introduce Gaston's sister if they make a sequel to the 1991 classic.

A Sexy Gaston's Sister!

Of course, we all love to see a beautiful and sexy but vengeful sister that goes by the name as Glinda or Gale! Her character will be very vengeful as mentioned, thinking that both Belle and Prince Adam killed her brother. Especially the latter! Until she decides to redeem herself in the end, forgiving the couple and finally accepting that he died of a freak accident.

Not Again!

Okay, if they include her, the story will be a repetition of the first story. Especially if her character is a vengeful out to kill Prince Adam!

A Sexy Villain or Not?

Do you want to see Gaston's sexy sister in a possible sequel?
No one has a sexy sister like Gaston!
No one has a sexy sister like Gaston!
As you can infer, this is my personal rank about Belle's outfits, one of the best dressed Disney animated females, in my opinion.

8. Brownish-red Cloak

Movies: Beauty and the Beast: Belle's Magical World

I know I can't expect so much from a sequel animation, but this cloak is awful. The color is too dark, I've never liked brown. Belle wears it with her blue dress and this is a really terrible combination. The hood also doesn't fit with her hair: brown hood with brown hair? Bad.

Belle is a french girl who thinks that she is odd.
Belle is a french girl who thinks that she is odd.
I may have seen this a long time ago as I got the loan of it from a friend of mine and I absolutely loved it. The characters are brilliant, the whole story is superb as it deals with accepting a person for who they are on the outside and not by their appearance.

Here is some things about this film and what my favourite scenes are,charcthers I love and more. Enjoy.



Production
Early versions
Walt Disney sought out other stories to turn into feature films after the success of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, and Beauty and the Beast was among the stories he considered.[4][11] Attempts to develop...

Team 1991?
Team 1991?
Hi guys, since I had done the review for the 2017 film, here is my comparison for the 1991 film with the 2017 version like what I did previously with Cinderella & Maleficent.

The Story-Line

Despite my initial skepticism for the 2017 live-action reboot, I was very happy with a number of things, especially about both Belle and the Beast's childhood, both lost their mothers and we also get to see their interactions more than the 1991 version.
Unlike the 1991 prologue, the 2017 version added more details as to how the inhabitants were cast under a spell. Forgetting about the Prince and the castle!...

There's something about the Enchantress!
There's something about the Enchantress!
Hi guys, I was inspired by a video on Youtube to write this article, so what you are going to read is my theory on whether or the Enchantress is really Prince Adam's mother.

A Valuable Lesson

In both the 1991 and 2017 versions, both his parents had died and his mother is so disappointed on her only son's behaviour as she watches him from the above. That she became the Enchantress to test him, ultimately turning him and the Enchanted Objects!

Retaliation

In the 2017 version, she is upset that her husband has shown his true nature of being a cruel, abusive and selfish man. That she retaliates by...

In the Great Wide Somewhere.
Well since I'm a fan of both films, I will be writing on how similarities both films are.

The Story

Since I grew up with both films, the intro starts off with a musical number that we grew to love. To which I will come to that later on as to how they are connected, as the story goes on. It goes from dark to happiness, especially the second half of the film.
The scene where Belle runs down the hill during her song reprise, is a reference to Maria during the opening number. Which is another topic that I will later talk about the character similarities for both Maria and Belle.

Hi everyone, I would like to write about my favourite songs and scores from the 1991 animated film. Here they are!

The Scores

The scores themselves are very memorable, there 2 of my favourites and they are To the Fair and Transformation. However, for the 1991 release of the West Wing, the second half was when the beast leads Belle to her room after releasing her father.
In the 2002 release, the second half was changed to the wolf chase. To which I never came to understand the reason why for this.
The transformation has 2 versions which were heard from the 1991 and 2002 version of the soundtrack,...

As you can infer, this is my personal rank about Belle's hairstyles.

4. Low Ponytail

Movies: Beauty and the Beast, Beauty and the Beast: The Enchanted Christmas, Beauty and the Beast: Belle's Magical World.

The most usual Belle's hairstyle is my least favorite. I think it's very plain and it doesn't value Belle's pretty face. She has the low ponytail for the most part of the movies with different bows, but my favorite is the green one. The green bow fits perfectly with Belle's brown hair. I love the pink one too, pink/brown is also a good combination. I really dislike...

Belle, The beautiful female lead character in the 30th animated feature film from Walt Disney Animation Studios Beauty and the Beast.

She have always been my favorite Disney character but even if she is my favorite that doesn´t mean that she is perfect.

I will here explain what i like about her and what i dislike and after that i will explain my reasoning.

Good Points
Here is the categories that i will talk about, I will use these on the bad parts aswell since there is always two sides to every coin.
Her Looks
I love how she looks, brown hair and eyes is very nice and I like the fact that...

This is my alltime favorite couple and i just want to write an article that is worthy of not just them but also the others who love this couple, so here is my best try.

They come from the 1991 Disney animated feature Beauty & the Beast and they have enchanted people´s imagination for almost 20 years now.


Belle
Belle, the beautiful and adventurous heroine of the story, she starts off with being a bit lonely and yearning for someone that whould listen and be interested in what she had to say about her books and to go on an adventure.
When she meets the Beast not only does she get someone...

Well here is my list with the songs from Beauty and the Beast, i will only write about the songs from the movie but i might use the stage songs in another article who knows.

First of all i just want to say that there is only one song in this movie that i don´t like and that is the one on last place, second i whould like to say that i hope you will share your thoughts on the songs.


Ok then i will start:

At 7th place is my least favorite of the songs Gaston
I have never liked this song as it glorified Gaston and made him seem like a "good guy".
Another reason why this is so far down is because i...

Belle:
Papa, do you think I'm...odd?
Maurice:
My daughter odd? Where did you get an idea like that?
Belle:
I don't know. It's just that, well, people talk.
Maurice:
They talk about me, too.
Maurice:
No, we're not odd, its true
No fam'ly ever saner
Except one uncle who...well, maybe let that pass
In all you say or do
You couldn't make it plainer
You are your mother's daughter; therefore you are class
Belle:
So I should just accept
I'm simply not like them
Maurice:
They are the common herd
And you should take my word
You are unique: creme de la creme
No matter what you do
I'm on your side
And if my point of view

The Original Belle.
Hi guys, I would like to write some of my favourite actresses who play Belle the best, starting from the best to the lowest. Ready?

Paige O' Hara

I was really happy that Howard Ashman (RIP) made the right choice by choosing Paige to voice the 5th Disney Princess, he discovered her when she was doing the Showboat the Musical back during the late 80's.
I find both her speaking and singing voice relaxing and pleasant to listen to, she has a European sounding in it and sounds like Judy Garland at some point of the film.

Susan Egan

Another Broadway actress who originated the role for the Original...

Here is a list of my favorite characters from my favorite movie.

I will begin with number 10 and work my way upward to number 1 so i hope you enjoy it and please let me know what you think.
Gaston
Gaston

At 10th and last place is Gaston
Gaston never was a character that i whould concider a favorite, he starts out the movie as a overconfident jerk who can´t take no for an answer which i always found annoying.
Then when he learns of the beast in the castle he changes into a villain that is at least worth your time but his personality didn´t get any better just from that.

But now when i watch the...

Since i love this movie so much i might aswell tell you what i like about some different scenes or moments from the movie so here are the ones that had the biggest impact on me as a kid or scenes that have made me think about storytelling.

So i hope that you will enjoy reading this and that you tell me what you think of these scenes.






First we have the prolouge:
This is a very well done scene since it is made to look like a glasswindow that tells a story.

"Once upon a time"

Next is the song Belle:
This song is very good and it really establishes who Belle and the villages are.

It has been a long time since I wrote an article so this might not be as good as my other work but I still hope that you will enjoy it.

Here I will tell you about the characters in the Movie Beauty and the beast that I wish we could have learned more about since they got little screentime and/or no explaination.

Babette (Human Form)
Babette (Human Form)

First off is Babette/Fifi/Featherduster:
What we know about Babette is that she is working as a maid in the Beasts castle and because of this she is transformed into a featherduster by the enchantress by the same spell that transformed the master into a Beast...

Beast AKA Prince Adam, The tragic hero character from Walt Disney Animation Studios 30th Animated feature Beauty and the Beast.

He is one of my favorite chatracters ever and have been ever since I was a kid, but just like everrything he is not perfect.

Here I will go into detail on what I like and Dislike about him and I will try to explain the best I can.


Good Points
Here is the categories that i will talk about, I will use these on the bad parts aswell since there is always two sides to every coin.

(Young Beast) 'Days in the sun, when my life has barely begun.
Not until my whole life is done, will I ever leave you?'
(Maestrol Cadenza) 'Will I tremble again? To my dear one's
gorgeous refrain?'
(Lumiere & Plumette) 'Will you now forever remain, out of reach
of my arms?'
(Mrs. Potts) 'All those days in the sun! What I'd give to relive just
one, undo what's done, and bring back the light!'
(De La Garderobe) 'Oh, I could sing, of the pain these dark days
days bring. The spell, we're under,
still, it's the wonder of us, I sing of, tonight!
(Belle) 'How in the midst of all this sorrow,
can so much love and hope endure?
I was innocent, and certain,
now I'm wiser, but unsure.
I can't go back into my childhood,
one that my father made secure,
I can feel the change in me,
I'm stronger now,
but still not free!
(All except Belle and Beast) Days in the sun,
will return, we must believe!
As lovers do,
days in the sun will come shining through!'

No one is handsome like Gaston!
No one is handsome like Gaston!
Since I had done for both Belle and the Beast/ Prince Adam, now is Gaston's turn to find his handsome actors.

1) Tom Burke

I first saw him as the arrogant Bentley Drummle in Charles Dicken's Great Expectations, he has the same personality and muscular figure for Gaston!

2) Colin Farrell

The Irish bad boy who played Alexander the Great in the 2004 Oliver Stone's biopic Alexander, his Irish accent is very sexy for Gaston, I wouldn't mind casting an Irish as Gaston!

3) Christian Bale

My favourite Welsh actor, I personally think he is an even better choice than Luke Evans, his fellow Welsh. In fact,...
