  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 Intelligent, strong-willed, outspoken and brave, Belle is a young woman who refuses to succumb to her village's outdated view on the role of women in society.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. Charles de LEUSSE:

    The most beautiful painting holds by a hard nail. (La plus belle peinture - Tient par un clou dur.)

  2. Emma Watson:

    I think I'm being given this award because of who Belle is and what she represents. The villagers in our fairytale wanted to make Belle believe the world was smaller than the way that she saw it, with fewer opportunities for her. I love playing someone who didn't listen to any of that.

  3. 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.

    a hand, a look and a nice pan. (coup de main, coup d'oeil et belle casserole.)”

  5. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Cicatrices ne sont pas quelque chose à cacher ou à en avoir honte; pour chaque cicatrice a une histoire incroyable à raconter - les histoires de l'endurance, de la lutte et de survie. cicatrices font vraiment nous complète et belle, à mon avis. Ils nous rappellent aussi nos triomphes sur les adversités, ce que nous défendons, et d'où nous venons.
