Belle's Magical World , depicts Belle as she interacts with both the Beast and his enchanted servants in various segments, exploring themes such as forgiveness, friendship, cooperation and respect. The role was originated by actress Susan Egan ,  who was initially reluctant to audition for Beauty and the Beast because she "thought it was a terrible idea for Disney to put a cartoon on Broadway. The Enchanted Christmas , Belle's Magical World and Belle's Tales of Friendship , as well as various video game releases such as the Kingdom Hearts series and several audio and video recordings associated with the Disney Princess franchise. The latter serial also implies that she holds misandric views and refuses to associate herself with the village children, especially the males, due to their not being as well-versed in literature as she. After her father's horse returns without its rider, she willingly ventures into the woods in search of her father. Having grown weary of her uneventful provincial life, in which she is relentlessly romantically pursued by an arrogant hunter named Gaston , Belle longs for adventure. The Enchanted Christmas , Belle attempts to reignite the castle's waning spirit by reintroducing and celebrating Christmas , in spite of the Beast's strong resentment towards the holiday. Belle's curiosity leads her to the forbidden west wing where she discovers an enchanted rose without realizing that it is tied to the Beast's fate; and the Beast's rage at her trespassing causes her to flee the castle on horseback. But, as this video proves, the characters can easily transition from romantic and sweet to something your children should never see. As a feminist and model, Watson suggested several changes to the character in the live-action film. Tricked by Forte into retrieving a large Christmas tree from a frozen pond, Belle nearly drowns, only to be rescued by the Beast. The series Sofia the First included a cameo by Belle in a episode. Belle is pursued by wolves in the woods but they are driven off by the Beast, afterwards Belle helps the injured Beast back to the castle and nurses him back to health. Still, the filmmakers didn't do the character any favors by swapping out that boy crazy trait for a pronounced maternalistic streak that comes across as a little creepy. And the characters of Edward and Bella also follow a similar story line to Beauty and the Beast. Still, this parody will definitely get you thinking about the kind of supposed "fairy tales" that may influence our children in unexpected ways. And this is the part where we gasp because the classic Disney movie takes on a whole new meaning right in this moment.
