Go To

Beauty and the Beast: Belle's Magical World (also known as Belle's Magical World) is a 1998 Direct-to-Video midquel of Disney's Beauty and the Beast. It is also a sequel to the previous midquel Beauty and the Beast: The Enchanted Christmas.

The film takes place partway through during the original film. It's a Compilation Movie featuring various connected shorts. The original film consists of the shorts "The Perfect Word", "Fifi's Folly", and "The Broken Wing". The 2003 Special Edition re-release adds on "Mrs. Potts's Party".

Interestingly, these shorts are actually unreleased episodes of a cancelled Beauty and the Beast TV series.

When the film was first released in 1998 it was just titled Belle's Magical World. For the 2003 re-release, the title was changed to Beauty and the Beast: Belle's Magical World.


This film contains examples of:

  • Compilation Movie: The film consists of four (originally three) shorts.
  • Covers Always Lie: The 2003 DVD cover showed Belle wearing her yellow ballgown, even though she never does so in any of the shorts.
  • A Day in the Limelight: "Fifi's Folly" and "Mrs. Potts's Party" are based around the castle staff.
  • Named by the Adaptation: The feather duster is named "Fifi".
  • Sudden Name Change: The Broadway musical gave the feather duster the name "Babette". Here, she's "Fifi".
  • Off-Model: Given that the film is a compilation of four (previously three) unreleased shorts that were originally planned for a cancelled TV series, the film has low quality animation akin to a television cartoon, not a Disney direct-to-video cartoon (or even the quality of an average Disney television cartoon). At one point Belle's eyes go in different directions.
