Disney Monologue Belle: “Beauty and the Beast”

Short Disney monologue for a female actor:

Character: Belle: “Beauty and the Beast” (1991)


I don’t know how to fit in. I don’t know how to be like everyone else. I don’t know how to smile and nod and pretend that everything is fine. But I do know how to read. And when I read, I escape. I go to places I’ve never been, I meet people I’ve never known, I feel things I’ve never felt. And for a moment, everything makes sense.

But then, reality comes crashing down. The people in my town, they don’t understand me. They think I’m strange, they think I’m a freak. They don’t see me for who I am, they only see what they want to see. And that’s why I feel so alone.

But then, I met the Beast. He was different too. He was scary, he was angry, he was lost. But he was also kind, he was also gentle, he was also loving. He showed me that there’s more to a person than what’s on the surface. He showed me that there’s beauty in the strangest things. And he showed me that it’s okay to be different.

Now, I am different, and I am proud of it. I am Belle, and I am not afraid to be myself.

Character: Belle Source: “Beauty and the Beast” (1991)


There must be more than this provincial life. That’s what I’ve always thought, ever since I was a little girl. I love my father and the town I grew up in, but I’ve always felt like I was meant for something more.

And then I met the Beast. At first, I was terrified of him. He was so angry and aggressive, and he held me captive in his castle. But as time went on, I started to see another side of him. A softer, kinder side. I saw that he was just as lonely and lost as I was.

And I realized that I had a choice. I could either let my fear control me and stay trapped in the castle forever, or I could be brave and try to find a way out. I chose to be brave. I chose to get to know the Beast, to see him for who he really was, and to help him break the curse that had been placed on him.

It wasn’t easy. There were obstacles and setbacks and moments when I wanted to give up. But I didn’t. I kept going, because I knew that this was my chance to break free from the provincial life and find something more.

In the end, it was worth it. The curse was broken, and the Beast was transformed into a prince. But more than that, I had found love, friendship, and adventure. I had proven to myself and to everyone else that I was capable of more than just being a simple village girl.
