Yes but I still love to movies, though we no longer have a VHS player

MWAHAHAHAHA!
Hello there! This is probably a dead conversation, but I just wanted to take the time to mention two of my favorite princesses, Snow White and Rapunzel. I love Rapunzel's character design and color combination of lavender purple and gold, as well as her association with the sun (I love the sun, moon, and stars) and her signature purple dress. However, I also love Snow White's striped puffy sleeves (for whatever reason I'm a sucker for those kinds of sleeves on princess dresses) and trademark white collar, especially when accompanied by her red cape and red hair bow. I know I'm mostly kind of partial to these characters based on aesthetics, but I just love their designs and outfits.
Love and Kisses

:0 I found this thread while browsing media and see it's been going on for a few years. xD

I love the princesses, I grew up on them. :3 My favorite was always changing when I was a kid. xD First it was Snow White, then it was Ariel, then Jasmine... I think, anyway. o_O

But now I know my favorite and it's gonna stay that way. XD Brave grew on me a lot over time and Merida's definitely my favorite. :3 But I do love Mulan, Rapunzel, and Snow White as well. Moana's one of my favorites, too, though she hasn't joined the lineup yet.

I got a kick out of Robot Chicken's Disney Princess War. Ariel, Snow White, Jasmine, Aurora and Cinderella vs. Merida, Tiana, Mulan, Rupunzel, and Belle. (Pocahontas and Tinkerbell make cameos.)

Not kid friendly though.

Ironically, Anastasia, a film misconceived as a Disney film, has recently become one as Disney has purchased Fox.
I presume that has added Anastasia herself to the official Disney princesses.

I can't help but wonder if people would take issue with Anastasia being called a Disney Princess given she was real person and people (I assume) are still debating what happened to her.

The same of sorts can be said of Mulan but I'm not really sure enough of her story to say how close it remains to real life.

I don't consider Anastasia a Disney anything, even though Disney bought Fox. The movie was still made by Fox, so she's still a er, Fox Princess. XD

Now, if Disney makes their own Anastasia movie, then we can talk. :P

No. That debate has been settled.

In 2007 her's and her brother's DNA were conclusively identified in a previously undiscovered grave near the site where the rest of the family's remains were found in 1991.

The film is pure fiction.
The real Romanav murders were nothing resembling what was depicted.

If it's telling in chapter 2 of the novel 'Warrior Woman' is accurate then not close at all. It's not Disney friendly.

No idea about Mulan other than it's based off Chinese legend, but "Kid friendly" hasn't exactly been important to Disney all the time. Things get re-worked as needed (eg. The Little Mermaid or Hunchback of Notre Dame, so I hear). I'm not talking about accuracy though, but just what they decide to make a movie out of. Greece was none too pleased with the Disney rendition of Hercules.

That's what the telling in 'Warrior Woman' would imply but that's where my knowledge ends as well.

That's what I'm saying, Disney essentially doesn't use the source material but rather reimagines it with vague references.

I imagine that neither were the Powhatan people with Pocahontas.
Disney outright dismissed their offer of consultation in favor of a rendition that romanticized a tragedy in blatant disrespect of Native American history and of a young woman's suffering.

I didn't realize that about Hercules.

Once again illustrating my above point that they don't really use the source material.

I wasn't arguing against it. Just saying that it's one thing to take fictional material, and another to use history and religion.

The issue with Hercules was that they pretty much re-wrote a pile of Greek legends and myths without thought to how relevant that all is to Greek culture.

Same thing with Pocahontas from one side, though some people disagree. Apparently the man who voiced her father in the movie thought it was ultimately beneficial because they flat out admitted that Europeans came to North America with the intention of exploiting resources and such, and it shows the culture clash.

But this is not stuff about Princesses.


I've been waiting to hear how the new TV Princess Elena was received. That's my niece's name so we've been half expecting her to want to be called "Princess" now. But then, she's a pick about anyone else using the same name as her.

I kinda like the sneaky trick they pulled in The Fog Princess with Tiana though. Princess by marriage. ;)

I thought that was clever as well.
I'd been braced for disappointment when Tiana announced that she and Naveen wanted to remain frogs. I wasn't a fan of the Brother Bear films ending on essentially the same note.
It even surprising them was part of what made that great though.

Never did see Brother Bear, but I did chuckle at the moose.

It's a good movie with an amazing soundtrack by Phil Collins.
