The Official Lineup (as of Jul. 2014) + Anna & Elsa
Hi there, and welcome to my 5th article! Last December, I wrote my link
on my paborito Disney Princesses, but I didn't include Anna or Elsa yet because I wanted to wait for them to sumali the lineup officially. Well, they're still not in the franchise quite yet, but seeing as how plenty of us (including myself) have them in presinto and artikulo and whatnot, I'll include them anyway. :D My placements will
fluctuate, I'm sure, but here's how my listahan stands as of July 2014.
(¯¨*·.¸_¸.·» ApplesauceDoctr's paborito Disney Princesses 13. Aurora (Previous Placement: 11th out of 11)
Aurora used to be one of my favorites growing up. I admired her sweet and graceful nature, curiosity, playfulness, and...that's about it. Yeah, 20 minutos isn't a whole lot of time to establish your character. Whenever I watch her movie, I do like her, but in the overall, there isn't a whole lot to her, so she remains last.
12. Pocahontas (Previous Placement: 10th out of 11)
^ Anyone else think she looks super pretty here in the blue dress? C:
What keeps Pocahontas from being dead last are her musical sequences. Seriously! Those are her most interesting segments. "Just Around the Riverbend" depicts her adventurous and curious personality, while "Colors of the Wind" shows her appreciation and understanding towards nature, along with her wisdom. Aside from these, I find Pocahontas pretty bland.
11. hasmin (Previous Placement: 7th out of 11)
Musical segments and leaves blowing through her hair sum up her interesting-ness.
After re-watching Aladdin, hasmin didn't leave too much of an impression. I still like her; she just doesn't rank too high on my list. I like her rebelliousness and desire to make her own choices, but since it's not her
movie, we don't get to find out much madami about her.
10. Mulan (Previous Placement: 5th out of 11)
She's so glamorous.
Surprised to see Mulan so low? Don't get me wrong, I like Mulan just fine. I don't think I need to explain why; we all pag-ibig her for her bravery and willingness to sacrifice herself for others. I only first watched Mulan a few years ago, so there's not much in terms of nostalgia. Again, I like Mulan - I simply like the others more.
9. Snow White (Previous Placement: 8th out of 11)
She's low on the list, but I do like her.
I LOVED Snow White as a kid. She was my paborito princess growing up, hands down, for pretty much everything about her - her kindness, sweet and gentle nature, all of that good stuff. She's obviously dropped a few spots since then, not because I don't like her, but same as Mulan, I just like the others more.
8. Merida (Previous Placement: 9th out of 11)
I think Snow White smiles the most of all the princesses. :)
It may not look like she's moved up a lot, but I've come to really like Merida! I criticized her before for not being as "action-packed" as I thought she would be, and for the situation involving her mom. I've been re-watching bravo a lot and I can look past those. I'm glad she's not super "action-packed" - it would have made her less of a realistic character. That's how I see it, at least. Merida's a fun character, and I admire her sense of adventure and her imperfections.
7. Ariel (Previous Placement: 4th out of 11)
Any scene where she uses a bow and palaso is awesome.
I watched The Little Mermaid not too long nakaraan and was kind of surprised at how...bratty Ariel was in the first act. Every other time I watched the movie, I liked her even in that segment, but not this time around. But when she becomes a human, her personality really starts to take effect. She doesn't need a voice to be interesting - she's very curious and fun once she's human, and it may sound bad, but I like Ariel madami when she's mute! It may look like she's fallen on my list, which...yeah, that's kind of true, but it's only because I've had to make room for other princesses in the upper half of the list.
6. Belle (Previous Placement: 6th out of 11)
She was and still is one of my favorites.
Belle remains in 6th place, but technically she's higher on the listahan than last time since there are madami princesses this time around. I for one pag-ibig Belle - she doesn't care what others think about her. She just goes on with life doing what she wants. She's kind, respectful, clever, and...what am I forgetting? Oh, yeah! We all know this - she looks on the inside. There are some who don't like her, one reason being she's too
perfect, and although I can see where they're coming from, I still can't help but pag-ibig Belle.
5. Sinderella (Previous Placement: 3rd out of 11)
Perfect? Yep. But I pag-ibig her anyway.
Cinderella's fallen a little bit, but I still pag-ibig her. Much like Aurora, Sinderella is sweet and graceful, but with Cinderella, I especially admire how hardworking she is. It also amazes me how she always remained both happy and hopeful that things would get better soon. I don't know what else to say about Sinderella other than I pag-ibig her. :D
4. Anna (New Addition)
Is it strange that Cinderella's high on the list, while Aurora and Snow White weren't?
Before watching Frozen, I thought for sure
that I'd like Elsa more. At first, I was wrong - I liked Anna much more. I'll talk madami about Elsa later, and although Anna's lower than her sister, I'm still a huge tagahanga of hers. She's fun, funny
, upbeat, joyful, and just a really entertaining character. Was it smart to head out to find her sister all sa pamamagitan ng herself [initially]? No, but I admire that - she knew that it was her fault what had happened, and she burdened herself with fixing the problem. And let's not forget her ultimate sacrifice at the end - that still amazes me. :)
3. Rapunzel (Previous Placement: 2nd out of 11)
How can anyone not pag-ibig Anna?
I fell in pag-ibig with Gusot the first time I watched it, and Rapunzel instantly became one of my favorites. She's just such a happy and upbeat, energetic character that a lot of Fanpoppers seem to like. Rapunzel's curious, adventurous, creative, and always positive and happy. I'm glad that she gets as much attention as she does, both on and off Fanpop. :D
2. Tiana (Previous Placement: 1st out of 11)
I really like that picture of her rocking out.
Tiana's been my paborito princess since I first watched her movie in theaters. She's my segundo paborito now, but like many other princesses on this list, I pag-ibig her to bits. She's hardworking, that is for sure. I like her transformation from being, as Naveen calls it, a "stick in the mud" to someone who allows herself to have fun every once in a while. I admire how she set the goal of establishing her own restaurant - it takes a lot of determination and willpower to do something like that, and she persisted. It makes me kind of sad to see that she isn't my #1 paborito after all these years, but I always have and always will
1. Elsa (New Addition)
Tiana will always have a special place in my heart. :D
It's a really
weird relationship I have with Elsa. Whenever I finish watching Frozen, I'm always thinking, "That's it?" I pag-ibig Let it Go just as much as anyone else, but that seems to be her only scene. But then
, give me a few days and I'll just pag-ibig Elsa. I have no idea what it is. Maybe there's something there that wasn't there before (ah, BatB references :D). Or maybe, since her personality isn't too established, I can kind of picture what I think she is. If it's the latter, then why is Aurora your least favorite?
, you may ask. Good question; here's why. Even though Elsa doesn't have a lot of screentime, she's still fairly interesting. (Not everyone will think she's interesting, I'm sure, but that's just how I feel.) Aurora...is not that interesting to me.
Anyway, what do I like
about Elsa? Her conflict with her powers is in some ways admirable. She's been trying for several years to keep them under control, but being isolated from her loved ones prevented that from happening. She runs away when her powers are revealed, and I see that as because she doesn't want to harm the kingdom any madami than she already has. She's doing it for their own good, and in the process comes to terms with who she is. I can kind of relate to that. I don't have powers (obviously :P), but I'm a pretty quiet person. I can look up to Elsa to be madami confident in who I am. And that may just be the reason why she ends up being my favorite.
Lo and behold, my paborito princess (er, queen) - Elsa.
Thank you so much
for pagbaba my article! I'm sure that your listahan looks a lot different from mine, but I hope that this was at least somewhat enjoyable to read. Let me know who your paborito (and/or least favorite) princesses are, and feel free to comment - they're always welcome! :D
Huh. My Top 4 princesses are all modern...
