Start Your Week Off Right

Each week I post a quote from Walt Disney, a Disney movie, ride, etc. to keep the Disney spirit going... even on a Monday!

"I want adventure in the great, wide somewhere."  ~ Belle

Here are a few cool facts about the movie.  You can find more at

* The original "cute" character of the movie was a music box, which was supposed to be a musical version of Dopey from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. But when the character Chip's role was expanded, the music box idea was scrapped. However the music box can be seen for a brief moment on a table next to Lumière just before the fight between the enchanted objects and the villagers in the Beast's castle.  (~ This is something I'll be looking for next time I watch it! ~)

* Art director Brian McEntee color keyed Belle so that she is the only person in her town who wears blue. This is symbolic of how different she is from everyone else around. Later, she encounters the Beast, another misfit, also wearing blue. It symbolized good in the film whereas red symbolized evil (the color of Gaston's shirt is red).

* Among the trophy heads on Gaston's tavern is what appears to be a frog's head, visible in the shot as Gaston spits. A bald eagle can be seen while he jumps onto his chair during his song. (~ Another one I need to keep an eye out for next time. ~)

There is really a lot of cool trivia, so definitely go check out the link I have above!
