Tale as old as time. But there is ONE thing you may have never noticed.

Beauty And The Beast, the beloved timeless Disney Classic

It's a tale as old as time, one that I can recite the entire film by memory. In case you ever wanted to see a one woman production.

It's a tale as old as time, one that I can recite the entire film by memory. In case you ever wanted to see a one woman production.

The story of a girl, growing up in a quiet village

Belle was a strong, independent woman, who stood up for herself and her father

She was insanely loyal and a woman of her word.

She was insanely loyal and a woman of her word.

While she was originally considered a prisoner

She knew she could leave whenever she wanted. She had her horse there and she did try to leave once. Beast came to her rescue. She still could have left him there in the woods to die. But she didn't.

Because she had a kind and gentle heart.

So she rescued Beast.

So she rescued Beast.

While most of these characteristics we can credit to being raised by a single father

And Maurice did a great job in raising her. But we all know he was just a little bit crazy. So Belle must have got her level headedness from her mama.

But where was Belle's Mom?

While she is not mentioned in the movie, she does make a small appearance.

Right there. Do you see it?

On the wall in Maurice's room hangs a photo of who I think is safe to assume is his wife. Because that doesn't look like a childhood Belle.

There she is, looking over Belle's shoulder as she takes care of her Father.

ENHANCE!

From this evidence we learn that Belle's Mom was never NOT apart of the story.

Disney never does things on accident. The animators must have put it there for a reason, for people like me to find and speculate. To me this proves Belle's Mom may have been gone but never forgotten.

Disney DID include her in a portrait that hangs in Belle's cottage in Disney World's Fantasyland.

It is just nice to see her Mother was never an after thought. She was there with us the whole time.

What do you think? Is it her? Or just some random picture on the wall.
