Have any of you thought about what could have happened to belle's mother? She obviously grew up to a kind and loving person but where was her mom at the time of her childhood? I don't know how she could have possibly grew up without a mother, I wish they would have explained this in the movie, like how they did with Ariel's mother, just a short story about the relationship she had with her and her Maurice- come on I mean princesses don't just raise themselves to be good. Same with Jasmine, what happened to her mom???
