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.)

Alright this is zaidi of a rant than anything because "Enchanted" is one of my inayopendelewa sinema and I cannot believe she isn't in the line up au is thought of as a Disney Princess. And I know the movie is making fun of the stereotypical princess when she meets the real world but there are so many allusions to the movie, especially The Little Mermaid in a lot of them. BUT ANYWHO let's get started.
The usual reason Disney deems a character a Disney Princess is usually because they are the heroine of the movie and have a few musical numbers where alisema heroine sings in. They also are very beautiful...

I've done hair and face lists for the princesses so far, but that's only physical qualities from the neck up. So this time I'll tackle the princesses bodies, everything from the neck down. After all, isn't that where all the good stuff is? kwa 'good stuff' I mean the heart, of course.


11. Snow White
Sorry, Snow, I know you're at the bottom of all my lists, but Walt himself alisema they were still learning when they made Snow White and the Seven Dwarves, anyway. One good thing about Snow White's body is that she looks her age. Snow is supposed to be fourteen, and she looks fourteen. That's a good...

I used to post these on the Disney Prince club but that spot looks dead :( I already did The Disney Princes I would settle down with but I don't really like it now, when I re-read some of my old articles, I sometimes cringe. Personality is zaidi important than looks but I can't really marry someone I'm not attracted to. I'm going to make this short because it can get offensive. I saw JNTA1234 doing this with the Princesses and I laughed a lot so here we go...

I saw KataraLover and sweetie-94 doing these kinds of makala so I decided to do this too but with Mulan and Pocahontas.


Similarities:
They are both confused and tafuta for spiritual guidance. Neither are very... optimistic. They have zaidi in common than that but I will explain it all reviewing the aspects.

Differences:
Since Pocahontas follows her intuition and wanted to choose her own path, Mulan is much zaidi obedient than Pocahontas. Pocahontas isn't into serious guys and Mulan, well... just look at Shang. Mulan is literally a fighter and Pocahontas is against. Mulan moped around a lot in the...

I thought that since Merida has joined that I should talk about the most heroic Disney Princesses. I'll be judging their actions based off not only the original sinema but in the sequels and TV series'. Keep in mind that this is just my opinion and that just because like per say I think they're a damsel in distress and not that heroic doesn't mean that I hate them. Anyway please leave a maoni and enjoy.

11.Aurora

Okay I don't like her but I don't hate her and this is kind of part of why I don't like her. First of all her dream is basically to be a damsel in distress, be saved kwa her true...

 What, someone's actually going to defend me?
What, someone's actually going to defend me?
People have been doing these kinds of makala for their inayopendelewa princesses lately, so I thought I’d do this for one of my inayopendelewa characters from a DP movie. She is a character I feel is really underappreciated and gets a lot of unfair hate. wewe can read some of the negative things people have to say about her on milky-way’s link. I really upendo Nakoma and feel a desire to defend her.

First of all, I want to defend her against something I’ve seen alisema about her (it wasn’t in that article, I’m not sure where it was, but I know I’ve seen it) that is just blatantly unfair and untrue....

Here are the results of the inayopendelewa Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs Character Countdown, hope you'll enjoy it :)

16. The Vultures

I was expecting them to leave a few rounds later, but there's not doubt about why they left at this point, most users alisema that they where creepy.

I watched this the other siku and I absolutely despise them. Ugh (Mongoose09)
Boring (Jessikaroo)
I like the vultures, actually! (rythmicmagic)
they have no purpose in the movie (pretty_angel92)

I've seen many of these makala on here, not many of them are that hivi karibuni though. Hardly any include the CGI princesses au Tiana in extreme cases. Not offence intended
So I decided to do a slightly zaidi up to tarehe countdown. Hope wewe enjoy it! :)
IMPORTANT NOTE - This is an opinion article. if wewe do not agree with any of my choices that's fine but there's no need to make harsh comments.

Due to the hivi karibuni 'Merida Princess Makeover Scandal' I am only judging the girls on how they look in the movie, not in the merchandise.

I apologize for any spelling mistakes, this is my first makala and I hope wewe won't be totally bored trying to get through the first princess paragraph. I'm sorry if your eye's melt out of their sockets but I'm sure wewe can push through kusoma and absorbing each word.. au wewe could just scan through haha. I was also very lazy with collecting picha and editing them so they look like rubbish. Sorry.

I decided to write this because there's always a moment where each of these princesses aren't happy so well here we go :)

The only rule I had was that the princess has to onyesha any feeling except happiness for majority of the scene so not the whole scene that's too hard to find almost at least!

Snow White: The Forest Scene

This is in my opinion one of the scariest movie moments, maybe even the scariest, it scares me whenever I watch the scene. What makes me upendo this scene so much is the animation, it's so well done that it scares me. This scene clearly shows that Disney has a dark side!...

I'm on a heroine kick, the female, not the drug. After doing that makala about Jane and Kida, I decided to make my own official line-up of Disney Heriones and rank them while I'm at it. So this is sort of a orodha and sort of a plain article. Anyway, I kinda set afew rules for myself.
1.She has to be human, but even then the only big losses are Lady and Nala.
2.She can be any age.
3.She has to have some similarities to at least one of the official princesses.
4.Two can be from the same film.So let's get started.

 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...

There's been a slight change to Aurora's list. Basically I just copied and paste all the words and made a simple switch. There's a new #1.

5.Blake Lively
This choice is purely based on appearance because personally I think this girl is a terrible actress. But I also think she's beautiful enough to play Aurora. Besides, it's not like she has to do much.

4.Amber Heard
Now this actress actually is talented but keeps doing borderline awful projects. Amber has definitely has the sex appeal to play this role. She's one of my inayopendelewa actresses right now and I think she could do a great job....

Now it's Jasmine's turn, we've reached the ethnic princesses so alot of my choices may seem cliche. Heck, wewe probably already know who's #1.

5.Gemma Arterton
Prince of Persia wasn't all that good but this young lady did a great performance. Gemma has the essence of royalty and can clearly play a girl power princess. But she's white and European so she can only go so far.

4.Anchal Joseph
For those who don't know, this girl was on a season of America's inayofuata juu Model apparently. Anyway, as soon as I saw her face, I immediately thought of Jasmine. She has the exact same facial features...

Okay, so here are the actresses for Belle, it was pretty easy. Let's get started. This is the first orodha that doesn't have any "Teen Stars".

5.Leighton Meester
She probably looks the most like Belle out of all the actresses. The facial structure, the hair, everything is exact. So why is Leighton only #5? Well the inayofuata 4 actresses have to proven to be much zaidi talented and can do twice as good of a job.

4.Christy Carlson Romano
Some of wewe may not know her au just don't remember her. She played Ren on Even Stevens, voiced Kim on Kim Possible. And she actually played Belle on broadway,...

I figured I'd make my orodha of my inayopendelewa Disney princess sequels since most people who make these just hate on them while I like them all. First of all I wanna say Enchanted Tales isn't a sequel. It's just a special for little girls the ages of 4-8. It's just something to teach girls lessons and is too short to be an actual movie. It's cute but nothing to be compared to the sequels. Please maoni but keep in mind this is just my opinion, enjoy.
