There are too many Disney Princesses

Is there an official list of Disney Princesses?

Disney Princess is a group founded by Andy Mooney to market Disney products to girls.

Shortly after joining Disney, Mooney attended his first Disney On Ice show. While he waited in line, he was surrounded by young girls dressed as princesses. "They weren't even Disney products. They were generic princess products," he mused. Soon after the demand was recognized, the Disney Princess line was founded. - Disney Wiki

How they were selected:

The franchise currently includes eleven female protagonists from ten different Walt Disney Animation Studios films and one Pixar film, who are either royal by birth, royal by marriage, or are considered "princesses" because of their significant depiction of heroism in their film.

The characters weren't specifically chosen for their royal titles, but rather for how well they fit into what Disney executives viewed as "princess mythology." Mulan is an example of this concept; She has no family ties to the royal family, but is still included in the character list. Tinker Bell was recorded on the same principle once before it was decided that she was not fit for "mythology". - Disney Wiki

A significant representation of heroism is good enough to earn the title of princess.

Who is included:

The original Disney Princess cast consisted of Snow White, Cinderella, Aurora, Ariel, Belle, Jasmine, Pocahontas and Mulan . It was later related to the successes of their respective films Tiana , Rapunzel and Merida expanded. Princess Moana, the star of Disney's upcoming 2016 feature film Moana, is expected to join the lineup. - Disney Wiki

Apparently, Princess Anna and Queen Elsa (Frozen) aren't good enough for this list.

Princess right to the royal family:

  • Snow White - Birth
  • Cinderella - marriage
  • Aurora - birth
  • Ariel - birth
  • Belle - marriage
  • Jasmine - birth
  • Pocahontas - birth +
  • Mulan - significant representation of heroism
  • Tiana - marriage
  • Rapunzel - birth
  • Merida - birth

+ Indian princess


You have to be the main and main character in the film which is not a sequel. and it is speculated that they must show significant growth / performance (hence the "significant display of heroism in their film"). Elsa is not the main character in Frozen and Anna does not experience any character development in the film.


Ariel seems to be missing from the claim list ...


@Lan or ... Frozen makes more money on merchandise than the rest of the Disney Princess line combined so they're in no hurry to put them together? :) :)


@ Lan Jasmine wasn't the main character in Aladdin (although she was a strong supporting character)

Princess Leia Organa of Alderaan belongs in there.
