Breaking the curse
Belle is one of the two central characters in the Disney Studios film Beauty and the Beast and is based more on the Disney version than the original 18th century story. It tells the story of a young woman who travels to the castle of a prince who was cursed and condemned to look like a horrible beast, to free her father who was taken prisoner there. Belle, an intelligent young woman with a passion for reading, offers to become a servant at the castle in exchange for her father’s freedom. As the days go by, Belle and the Beast grow closer, thanks to their love of reading, and the inhabitants of the castle, who have been transformed into objects, perhaps see the possibility of breaking the spell.
A la mode du chateau
For this Target store exclusive figure, Funko decided to depict Belle in the outfit that the wardrobe-turned-governess is trying to create for her. Following the fashion of the 18th century, the dress is not exactly sober. The skirt is very wide with many frills: gold and pink fringes and big pink bows. At the top, it is covered with pink fabric also covered with frills in pink tones with small bows everywhere. At the level of the head, we find her brown hair held slightly back and styled with pretty English.
