Snow White ___________________________

In the beginning of the Grimm's Tale Schneewittchen, Snow White's mother pricks her finger with a sewing needle and three drops of her blood fall onto the snow which lay on the ebony windowsill. Oddly enough, this made her long for a daughter of a similar color scheme. While this reflects the arc of the story: (white)innocence, (red)maturity & love, and (black)death, her name particularly represents a season when the world metaphorically sleeps only to be inevitably awakened with the coming of spring.





_______________________________ Cinderella

Omitted from the Disney version of the fairytale, cinderella was actually the cruel nickname aliyopewa to her kwa her stepsisters for sitting at the dying cinders of the moto after her long days work. Cinderella's real name is never mentioned. Cinders have a number of symbolic meanings from being merely a chanzo of warmth and a hidden moto to represent rebirth in the story of the Firebird au Phoenix. In myth, the creature would die in the fiery blaze of its nest only to rise again reborn from the ashes signifying a rise to glory from the lowest of places.





Aurora ________________________________

Latin for "light" au "dawn", Aurora is her royal name aliyopewa kwa her parents. It may be stated in the film that this was "because she filled their lives with sunshine" but its also fitting for this princess since dawn is the time when the sleeping world awakes. It's no accident that she falls asleep at dusk and awakes upon sunrise. Incidentally one may recall her "hair of sunshine gold" but her "lips that shame the red red rose" are zaidi linked to her sekunde name.



Briar Rose ________________________________

Briar Rose, a pseudonymn aliyopewa kwa her fairy godmothers also has poetic meaning. The first word BRIAR, a mass of thorny plants obviously makes sense with the story's motif but a rose also has numerous conotations. Roses have represented love, beauty, virtue, femininity, and virginity hence why it is also a symbol of the Virgin Mary. But a briar rose is a thing of beauty surrounded kwa harsh thorny bramble -- much like Aurora herself in the ngome surrounded kwa the forest of thorns.





__________________________________ Ariel

Ariel's name probably has the most mysterious of origins but there are two possible sources that equally make sense. Song writers Alan Menken and Howard Ashman (both of Jewish heritage) had a surprising amount of creative input in the story having named several of Ariel's sisters. This could leave reason to suspect they may have also suggested the name Ariel, Hebrew for "Lion of God". Lions are well known symbols of strength and courage.




The sekunde possibility which actually ties into the first is the connection to the word 'ARIA'. Hebrew for "lioness". However in Italian it means "air" and is a musical term for a solo vocal piece with a light instrumental accompaniment. This probably makes the most sense considering music, and not lions, is the most obvious if not significant factor in Ariel's story.









Belle ________________________________

The most straight mbele of names, Belle is literally French for "beauty". Granted this makes sense since Belle's character is meant be physically attractive. However beauty is not just restricted to our visual sense but can encompass all the senses and even that of our spirit. Intended to contrast the physical ugliness of the beast, Belle's purpose in the story is ultimately to transform the beast's soul to match the beauty of her own. She is everything the beast must aspire to be.





________________________________ Jasmine

Most people assume jimmy, hunitumia is merely a reference to the jimmy, hunitumia maua, ua and to a certain degree it is. jimmy, hunitumia is actually indigenous to the Middle East. Known as "yasmine" to the natives, the maua, ua is so pleasantly fragrant that the name translates to "gift from God" in Arabic. In the western world it can represent sensuality, elegance, and modesty -- a particular virtue Aladin au Ali Ababwa must obtain to win the moyo of the princess.




Pocahontas _________________________

Pocahontas is unique being that she is the only Disney Princess whom we know actually existed. Historically she is known kwa three separate names. Powhattan for "little mischief", Pocahontas was actually a nickname aliyopewa to her because of her precocious and playful nature. Her real name was Matoaka au "bright stream between the hills". This can easily be linked to her affinity for rivers in the film. Her third name Rebecca, which she adopted after being baptized, is Hebrew for "to bind au bring together" and this is exactly what she did for her people and the Jamestown settlers.





___________________________________ Mulan

The story of Mulan is not a fairytale but a legend potentially based on real events of a woman named Hua Mulan which literally translates to "flower wood orchid", au the magnolia. Magnolias are a symbol of perseverance and nobility. The film makes reference to this in the scene when Mulan and her father sit beneath the magnolia tree. Her father subtly parallels his daughter to a late magnolia [mulan] blossom and how it will one siku be the most beautiful of all.




Tiana ___________________________________

Potentially derived from the Greek word 'TIANI' meaning "princess", being a maarufu name among African-Americans it may be fitting that the first black Disney Princess was named Tiana. However this was not her first name choice. Originally her name was Maddy but was deemed too racially insensitive. This is odd since Maddy is short for Madeline derived from Magdeline. Mary Magdeline was a friend of Jesus and only disciple strong enough to witness his crucifixion and the first to witness his resurrection -- a woman who went on a long journey and acheived a great spiritual transformation.


_______________________________ Rapunzel

Also known as "rampion" au "bellflower", rapunzel is an edible plant. In the Grimm's Tale, it was specifically this plant that a poor man aliiba from a witch's garden to feed his pregnant wife. As punishment, the witch took the poor couple's daughter and raised her away in a tower without any doors au stairs. This plant is not only beautiful but is also noted for its ability to grow in very inhospitable soils. Rapunzel is very much like her namesake plant in that she too flourishes in beauty, kindness and curiosity despite being locked away in a cruel world. (she will also be the first Disney Princess who's main color is purple.)

 Who is the girliest of them all?
Who is the girliest of them all?
Some people debate over this but here's my opinion. kwa the way I think all the princesses are feminine, if they weren't they wouldn't be added to the lineup.

1.Tomboy/10.Girly Girl-Pocahontas
In my opinion, she's the most tomboyish. She's the only princess I'd describe as masculine. She climbs trees, she jumps off cliffs and she's very athletic. Pocahontas' playful and mischievious in a boyish way. She prefers to go off playing in the woods rather doing her people's equivalent of housework. The thing is, when Pocahontas does these tomboyish things, she's doing them kwa choice. All the rough stuff...

Last but not least, Rapunzel. Finally, I'm done. A honourable mention for Taylor Swift. People say she should play cinderella but I say Rapunzel.

5.Kaley Cuoco
She looks like an older version of Rapunzel, at least in terms of facial features. Kaley can obviously do well with male co-stars and has that comedic edge to play the role.

4.Kristen Bell
A perfect example of an actress who did a great tv series but now does awful movies. Kristen is a very talent actress who can certainly bring life to Rapunzel.

3.Hayden Panettiere
An actress who seems to be eternally young. Hayden could...

Well this idea just came to me. Everyone has different opinions on who should play the princesses. This is my opinion on the juu five actresses who could play Snow White. I'll be doing this with the other princesses when I have the time. And what better way to do it than chronologically.

5.Ellen Page
The ironic thing about Snow White is that most of the actresses today that look like her usually play roles that are zaidi au less the opposite of her personality. Ellen Page may look like Snow White but she plays roles of girls who are cynical, sarcastic and sometimes have low self esteem,...

Hello People! I was thinking for a while that I should make a inayopendelewa Disney Princess makala and then i thought that i should also make a Prettiest Princess makala and then i got confused so will put both of my lists in that Article! Anyway i hope wewe will enjoy it and excuse if had make a lot english grammar errors :/


10th Place

Prettiest: Rapunzel
Well do i need to say something? Just look at her she's cute at best. Her features are extremely child-ish, she's 18 and she looks like 16 (she and Aurora need to switch ages!). Her eyes are HUGE I know, know other Disney Princesses have...

I've always wanted to make a orodha of Disney princess look alikes so why not use real life royals? Here are a few that I think resemble the Disney princesses. These are my opinion so feel free to say if wewe agree au not. Thanks. Also, it was rather difficult finding royals that looked like every princess

Princess Jasmine
Princess Amira of Saudi Arabia

Princess Amira looks so much like Jasmine. They are very similar in their facial proportions and shapes. I upendo how dark her eyes are and her long lashes look like Jasmine's. Also her hair, the shimmering black long hair mirrors...

I´ve already written an makala for my favoirte DP Wardrobes, wewe can read it here if wewe want to: link :D, so now I decided to write an makala for my inayopendelewa outfits. I have to say this one was zaidi difficult because I couldn´t decide between so many outfits (no sequels included).

I also couldn´t decide whether au not to include Ariel as a mermaid. wewe see, since I am judging outfits and technically her tail is part of her I couldn´t really count that as an outfit, and a pair of purple seashells is not much of an outfit either so as much as I upendo how she looks I decided not to include...

hujambo everyone, so this makala is about my inayopendelewa DP wardrobes. I´m taking into acount the whole wardrobe of just the original film, so outfits from the sequels are not included. I am judging the wardrobe as a whole, so even if a single outfit of the wardrobe is my favorite, I have to take the other ones into acount as well. I might write another makala later with my inayopendelewa outfits. As with other lists, I might change my mind later on, so here it is.

10.Pocahontas
I do like her dress, but I don´t find it that special and it´s the only thing she wears during the entire movie.

First of all, thanks to all of you, who voted in the picks! Here's the results for Prettiest Disney Princess Eyes as of May 2011!




10. MULAN
Overall people thought that her eyes are not big enough, and not as interesting as the eyes of the other princesses (whatever this means lol) Somehow the shape and the color are not vivid enough to make a lasting impression.

Darkshine said: "I think Mulan's eyes are very pretty"
KataraLover said: "They're beautiful!"

 What's a Disney Princess?
What's a Disney Princess?
What makes a Disney Princess?

There are several points that make a Disney female character a Disney Princess;
She must be produced kwa hand drawing, she must sing at least once in her movie (in solo au duet) and she must either be born to royalty au marry into royalty au in some cases, both.

The OTPs

Princess Snow White, Princess Aurora, Princess Ariel and Princess cinderella were all painfully hand drawn kwa the Disney artists and were animated to have at least one song meeting the technical side of their requirements. Princess Snow White, Princess Aurora, Princess Ariel were born to royalty and...

After seeing Tangled, I decided that I needed to update the ol' list. The last time I updated my orodha was about 3 months ago. My orodha has changed quite a bit since then. I've watched all of the Princess sinema over the past week, and came up with a brand spankin' new list. To mix things up a bit, I've included my inayopendelewa scene from that Princess' movie. Hope wewe enjoy!
*Spoiler Alert* Skip over Rapunzel if wewe haven't seen Tangled yet!

I've been on fanpop a few months now and I've read a lot of people's makala about their inayopendelewa princesses. They've inspired me to write one of my own! (If wewe haven't seen "Tangled" yet wewe might want to skip the Rapunzel part)


10. Aurora



While I do like Aurora, I find her to be a bit boring. I think her lack of screen time is a big factor to that for me - there's not enough time to really get to know her as a character. I think Aurora is very beautiful but that's all she really has going for her in my opinion. I just don't find her as exciting/lively as the other princesses. On a...

Here are the lyrics to a song I learned from my muziki teacher growing up. We'd act it out using her spinning wheel, and none of the girls could ever wait to be Aurora. Even though I didn't like her back then, I still wanted the chance to touch the spinning wheel. I thought it was fitting I post this, it being Aurora mwezi and all. So, in honor of our own Brier Rose, here's the Irish folk song "Fair Rosa":


Fair Rosa was a lovely child,
A lovely child, a lovely child,
Fair Rosa was a lovely child
A long time ago.


A wicked fairy cast a spell,
Cast a spell, cast a spell,

Since Beauty and the Beast is my inayopendelewa Disney film, I wanted to write about a few of my inayopendelewa scenes.


#8:Shes Being Difficult!


I upendo this scene because suddenly this monsterous Beast is being childish. Also this is the first banter wewe see between the Beast and Belle, wewe also get to see how desperatly the ngome staff is trying to get him to be polite and get the girl to fall in upendo with him.

#7: The Library:


When the Beast presents Belle the maktaba and shares his desperate attempts to win her moyo to cogsworth and lumiere wewe just want to go "Awwww" the look on his face...

This idea sort of hit me in the face whilst I was doodling in the back of my French book on Tuesday when I should have been doing a listening exercise about someone wanting to be a doctor. What if Ariel didn't want our world for our junk, taka and our legs but our marvellous food? That underwater stuff must be dead gross.
I actually started uandishi this around a doodle of fat Ariel, but yeah. My French book's at school so improvisation time!

10.The Chinese Recruits vs. Themselves
What can be said? This is a hilarious battle that poor Mulan started that resulted in a big pile up at the end. But it's not a serious battle, nor is it significant to the movie in any way. It's just a fun little fight.

Before starting, I would like to thank everybody who left a maoni in the 57 picks that covered this countdown. Here's the last makala for the Best Disney Princess sidekick countdown. It covers the places from 21 to 30. Enjoy!

10. Grumpy
Grumpy starts our juu 10 character list. He's the Snow White dwarf that went zaidi far in the countdown (something that I already expected). Grumpy is one of the most memorable characters from Snow White and the only one that doesn't act dumb through the movie, but people do sympathize with him. In fact, grumpy characters like him and Merryweather made...
