10. Alice Why should she be in the lineup?
Although her movie was a flop, it's still popular to this day; it's shown on tv every now and then, the movie has a lot of merchandise, had gotten a live action remake, and it has a few rides in the Disney parks. And though she's not a princess or in the lineup she's featured in Disney Princess related stuff like DP magazines and DP sing-along pelikula and she's called the Princess of puso in the Kingdom Hearts games Why shouldn't she be in the lineup?
She's too young to be in the lineup. That's really it. I would add because she's not royalty as well but Mulan and Pocahontas are in the lineup
9. Eilonwy Why should she be in the lineup?
She's a princess and fans will say she's bland compared to how she was in the book but I honestly like that she spoke her mind (even if she sinabi something rude unintentionally) and when Taran got mad at her at one point and sinabi "What would a girl know about swords anyway?" she stood up for herself, reminding him if it weren't for her he'd still be in a dungeon. Why shouldn't she be in the lineup?
Her movie is one of the least popular pelikula Disney's ever made and her movie is really dark (like you see dead people, the main villain is a terrifying looking skeleton-like monster, and one of the characters sacrifices himself, as in jumps into the cauldron and dies
). There's no rides based on The Black Cauldron, you won't find merch for this movie anywhere except maybe online, no characters in the parks, and the movie is never shown on tv. She is so unpopular that unless you've actually seen her movie you won't know who she is and she's too young to be in the lineup (she's 12, and I'm assuming she'd have to be a teenager to be in the lineup?)
8. Giselle Why should she be in the lineup?
She acts like a princess, dresses like a princess, and does over the tuktok pag-awit like a princess does. She was origianly planned to be in the lineup, which would have been really interesting because then she would have been the very first DP to be in an animated/live action movie. Her movie, which made fun of different tropes from past Disney Princess movies, was also a big success in theaters, is shown on tv, and is supposed to be getting a sequel. Why shouldn't she be in the lineup?
Disney realized they'd have to pay Amy Adams forever to use her likeness for Giselle mga manika and fans don't like that she's a mix of Ariel, Snow White, Cinderella, and Aurora
7. Kida Why should she be in the lineup?
She was a princess for most of her movie and she clearly cares about her culture and her people. And though her movie involves death and mga baril (this movie has the highest body count in the Disney franchise), it's a lot madami lighthearted and fun compared to The Black Cauldron. I remember when I was a kid I actually liked that the movie was madami realistic when it came to the dangerous stuff the characters had to encounter. Although her movie flopped, it's still a paborito among many fans who are still mad at Disney for being the cause of it. If she was in the lineup she would be the oldest Disney Princess in the lineup. Why shouldn't she be in the lineup?
Her movie flopped at the box office and her becoming a reyna at the end of her movie probably doesn't help. Like The Black Cauldron it's hard to find Atlantis merch
6. Esmeralda Why should she be in the lineup?
She was part of the lineup for a while before being taken off. Though she doesn't act like a princess, she does care about her people and she acts madami realistic. She stands up for what's right, she's sarcastic, defends herself when someone is insulting her or tries to assault her, and she's flawed. She's also very kind hearted like when she helped Quasimodo when he was being publicly humiliated and her song God Help the Outcasts. Why shouldn't she be in the lineup?
Though her movie wasn't exactly a failure, audiences did complain that the movie was too mature for children to watch; a woman dies at the beginning, a man lusts for a younger woman and makes her choose between being with him or getting burned alive, it's not shown but there's a scene involving a man getting flogged, and the main villain falls to his death. Like The Black Cauldron and Atlantis it's almost impossible to find merch
5. Jane Why should she be in the lineup?
Like Esmeralda she doesn't act like a princess but she does care about the mga hayop in the jungle. This has been made clear since her first appearance in the movie when she's trying to stop Clayton from using his gun every few minutes. She's a great role model for kids. Her movie did great in the box office, got a spinoff show, a sequel, and a prequel. Why shouldn't she be in the lineup?
Though it had been announced years nakaraan that she was going to sumali the lineup, she ended up not being a part of it for some reason. fans have sinabi that if she had joined the lineup she and Belle would get mixed up a lot (both have brown hair and wear yellow dresses)
4. Meg Why should she be in the lineup?
Again, doesn't act like a princess but, again, she's a good person. It's brought up a few times how selfless she is; she sold her soul to Hades to save her boyfriend's life, when her freedom was on the line she refused to help Hades find Hercules' weakness, and when a pillar was going to fall on Hercules she pushed him out of the way and got crushed instead. Though she's cynical and can be mean at times, it's because of her boyfriend betraying her after she gave up her soul to save him, which ended with her being Hades' slave. After meeting Hercules you can see her walls slowly coming down and you can tell that she's not like a generic villain who decides to be good after falling for the good guy. Why shouldn't she be in the lineup?
Like The Black Cauldron and Atlantis, the movie flopped. Though her movie did have a spinoff and a prequel (or is it midquel?) it's not as good or well known as Aladdin's or The Little Mermaid's.
3. Elsa Why should she be in the lineup?
Even after almost 5 years this movie is still cosidered popular. When this movie came out it was almost impossible to go a araw without the song Let it Go being played or sung and eventually a sing-along version of the movie was released in theaters. Elsa herself is beloved sa pamamagitan ng many fans, one of the reasons being because she's one of the few characters who has anxiety or depression, something a lot of people have and can relate to. In fact, her song Let It Go has become kind of an anthem for them. Why shouldn't she be in the lineup?
Because the movie had gotten so popular Disney decided to gatas this cashcow and even to this araw it's still happening and it's gotten to a point long nakaraan that now nagyelo is either tolerated or flat out hated. Since nagyelo is so popular Elsa doesn't need to be in the DP franchise
2. Moana Why should she be in the lineup?
She's one of the first heroines (or at least one of the few) who is being taught to be a leader and actually wants to be a leader while still being able to go on adventures. Moana clearly cares about her island and the people on the island since we see her madami than happy to help the villagers with their problems and she leaves to find Maui and return the puso so her tahanan and people can be saved. She would be the first Polynesian DP which would add diversity to the lineup Why shouldn't she be in the lineup?
She flat out say she's not a princess (though royal blood isn't something that's actually needed to be in the lineup) so if she was in it it'd be hypocritical
1. Anna Why should she be in the lineup?
Like I sinabi with Elsa, nagyelo was a popular movie that succussed at the box office. She's supposed to be designed to be different from other princesses; her behaviour is madami relatable, she acts madami excitable and awkward. Why shouldn't she be in the lineup?
Again, nagyelo was too successful on its own to have her and/or Elsa be in the lineup. It was planned for them to be in the lineup until nagyelo became its own franchise
