  1. Belle

    Belle is a fictional main character who appears in Walt Disney Pictures' thirtieth animated feature film Beauty and the Beast. She subsequently appears in the film's two direct-to-video midquels Beauty and the Beast: The Enchanted Christmas and Belle's Magical World, direct-to-video spin-off Belle's Tales of Friendship, and television series Sing Me a Story with Belle. From 1991 to 2011, Belle was voiced by American actress and singer Paige O'Hara, who auditioned for the role after she read about it in The New York Times. Since 2011, Belle has been voiced by American actress Julie Nathanson. Created by screenwriter Linda Woolverton and animated by James Baxter and Mark Henn, Belle is the daughter of an infamous inventor named Maurice, with whom she lives in a small town in France. Though perceived by her fellow villagers as "the most beautiful girl in town," Belle is considered strange and an outcast because of her love of reading and non-conformity. Romantically pursued by a handsome but arrogant hunter named Gaston, in whom she shows no romantic interest because of his conceitedness and sexist mentality, Belle dreams of leaving her provincial village life in favor of adventure. When her father is taken prisoner by the Beast, Belle sacrifices her own freedom, taking his place in order to save his life and eventually learning to accept him for who he is despite his appearance. Intelligent, strong-willed, outspoken and brave, Belle is a young woman who refuses to succumb to her village's outdated view on the role of women in society.

Chambers 20th Century Dictionary

  1. Belle

    bel, n. a handsome woman: the chief beauty of a place: a fair lady generally. [Fr. belle—L. bella, bellus.]

Examples of belle in a Sentence

  1. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Une belle et parfaite est chose ni beau ni parfaite à son début. La beauté et la perfection sont atteints d'énormes efforts et l'endurance extraordinaire au fil du temps. Qu'après résister à la pression et la chaleur torride tremondous depuis d'innombrables années, un charbon peut se transformer en un beau diamant éblouissant. Efforcer d'être que le diamant, et de ne jamais se contenter de moins dans la vie.

  2. Sean Bailey:

    When you're able to bring wonderful casts to some of these characters -- that haven't been realized in live action... you can sort of bring layers and texture, if you look at something like 'Beauty and the Beast,' well, why is Belle's father, Maurice, so protective? Why is she in the provincial town? You can expand the stories and enhance the stories.

  3. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    l'un des mythes les plus anciens et bien acceptées, ce qui est le plus grand ennemi de la vérité, à mon avis, est que l'on peut tout simplement pas maintenir la meilleure qualité de vie sans consommer dangereux, toxiques, et des substances appauvrissant. Ce mythe a été persistant, mais irréaliste. Aujourd'hui, les scientifiques novateurs et brillants disciples de la chimie verte défient ce mythe antique de compromis et «quid pro quo» - en concevant apprpriately leurs réactions chimiques, et la sélection des alternatives non-dangereuses à réactifs sinon toxiques. que c'est la façon de se rendre! nous devons penser à l'environnement, à conserver notre belle terre mère fraîche et propre - à tout moment.

  4. Jonathan Swersey:

    It's helped her a lot with pain management. When Belle started, she was taking oxycodone, and the oxycodone was really ineffective for her pain. It was really incredible to watch her riding a horse for the first time. She had no sense of pain whatsoever.

  5. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Il a été débattue pendant des années si la beauté est dans l'œil du spectateur ou de la beauté est dans le cœur du spectateur. Mais il est pas si bien apprécié que la beauté peut être totalement inutile sans son vrai connaisseur. Que monsieur Allama Iqbal a fait remarquer dans sa poésie: «Pour mille ans la fleur la plus rare et belle de narcisses se lamente sa cécité, Il est avec de grandes difficultés que l'un avec une vraie vision est nés dans le jardin.». Je pense aussi que soit la beauté ou de la créativité ou de génie atteint son véritable sens seulement après une rencontre avec son aficionado authentique, et ce qui arrive rarement facilement. Un connaisseur est donc absolument essentiel, à mon humble avis, l'existence de la beauté, la créativité et le génie dans notre monde. - Deo.
