Beauty and the Beast actor says without Belle there would be no Mulan

November 30, 2021

1991 The beauty and the Beast is widely regarded as one of the best animated films Disney has ever produced, featuring stunning hand-drawn animations, toe-tapping songs, and witty script. The film inspired a stage show, has grown into a billion dollar live-action film, and the heroine Belle is among the most popular Disney princesses.

Over the years, Belle has received much praise for breaking with the traditional princess mold: she is fiercely independent, self-taught, and the story turns the ‘lady in distress’ mold around by making Gaston the villain.
