Okay, you played along and stuck it out. Maybe you didn't officially let your voice be heard. Maybe you quickly scrolled down and didn't think twice before hitting the comment button. Maybe you don't really care... But hey, I am about to make the big reveal and I am going to ask for audience participation....
drum roll and pixie dust please!
I am going to be
So if you are one of my commentors that guessed Belle, then way to go! I was trying to be a bit sneaky and give some clues that could go either for Belle or another princess. So, if you follow RunDisney on facebook your might remember back last summer when they announced the newest addition to the RunDisney family through a series of (stinkin' HARD) clues! I knew I wouldn't be able to come up with anything that...well...thoughtful. But, I figured I would unpack my clue selection. So if you want to know more then look below!
The actress that voiced my princess (hint, hint) has worked on at least two different Disney movies.
Many Disney princesses were voiced by actresses that appeared in more than one Disney Movie. The answer to this clue is Paige O'hara has voiced Belle (in several Beauty and the Beast related movies/tv spots) but also made an appearance in the movie Enchanted!
You'd have to be the fool not to see that my princess wants to be a part of something more.
Alright here is where it could have been Ariel (Part of That World) or Belle (Belle Reprise). You know, I guess a lot of princesses could fall into this category but, I was aiming it at Belle! Wanna know what that whole "the fool" thing was about? Well, it was thoughtfully planted to nod at LeFou, Gaston's companion. LeFou translated in French means "the madman" so in essence, you would have to be crazy, mad, or "the fool".
I got my work cut out for me as invent new clues. You guys are crazy good at Disney trivia...
Here is clue #3:
My princess took a nod from princesses who went before her; walking in their footsteps, my princess had a ball.
Alright, part of the clue was in the start of the post. I used the words invent and crazy in hopes to echo a character from the film, Belle's father, Maurice. Maurice was an inventor and Gaston wanted to have him put away for being crazy (crazy old Maurice hey...crazy old Maurice!) That was for all of you read between the lines people. The clue works this way, Belle and Beast's ending sequence is actually the same dance sequence used by another princess/prince combo. Aurora and Prince Phillip danced into a dream using the same footsteps. So you see, Belle danced the same dance as Princess Aurora. Check out this Youtube video and read more from IMDB about this neat trivia!
Alright, I am only going to stretch this out for a bit more. After the 5th clue you'll get your wish to see what I will be in the Princess Half!
If my princess went to college maybe she would be working on her nursing degree (she's good at saving wounded men).
Thanks for participating...you make this princesses heart ring!
Okay so I got a bit cryptic here too. "You'll get your wish to see" refers to the magic mirror Beast uses to see anything he wishes to see (remember he gives this to Belle). Also the "ring" was in reference to the sound my princess' homophone name makes in the word "BELL". Okay for the clue, I was trying to create a diversion. Sorry. In the Little Mermaid, Ariel nurses Eric back to health. But, the wounded man I was talking about was beast (remember Belle tends to his wounds sustained in the wolf attack).
Okay, okay, this is the last clue! Thanks for letting me have some fun! This clue promises to be set apart from the rest. Very different from the rest if you will!
Recognize the highlight portion "very different from the rest" from anywhere? Try this Beauty and the Beast favorite...
And maybe you were able to guess that the pixilated picture was indeed...
Thanks for playing along! Look for lots of new posts about the upcoming half. I am working on a styleboard for my costume! Plus some training updates!
Love you all,
