I guess he's not a fan of ballets or 1980's animes.
Ever since Doug Walker did his review of The Swan Princess, I've noticed more and more people around the internet accuse this movie of being "Disney-lite," "a Disney knock-off," etc.

Problem is, the reasons they give are either something that almost EVERY animated movie has done since Snow White (singing, princesses, animal companions, etc) OR it was already in the original fairy tale-inspired ballet written and composed by Tchaikovsky decades before Disney ever got into animation.

Quick Backstory: The Swan Princess is based on the ballet Swan Lake, again, written and composed by Tchaikovsky. And it's a very faithful adaptation too. I've read plot summaries and watched the ballet proper, and The Swan Princess actually doesn't change too much plot-wise.

The only real changes they made are that Odette and Prince Siegfried (renamed Derek) grew up knowing each other, were arranged to marry, then broke up right before Odette got kidnapped and enchanted by the sorcerer Von Rothbart (just plain "Rothbart" in the movie). In the original ballet, the prince and princess meet for the first...

I would have done a top 10 but I feel strongly about my top 5 so :)




5. Son of Man - Tarzan
I'm actually not a huge Phil Collins fan tbh but this song is really great and is able to put me in a good mood. One of my favorite things is the zero to hero segment and that's what Son of Man projects incredibly well.

4. Journey to the Past - Anastasia
Yes, I love Journey to the Past more than Once Upon a December. This song is about Anya trying to find her family. More in depth, she has dreamt about finding out who she is and where she belongs but has doubts about following her insticts. I love how this song has a sweet tone to it that is a bit serious at the same time.

3. If We Hold on Together - The Land Before Time
A song about keeping dreams alive, it's really beautiful and makes me emotional. My mom used to sing If We Hold on Together to me all the time when I was a kid so nostalgia does play its part in me loving this song, it will always hold a special place in my heart.

I love non-Disney movies as much as Disney, and I happen to love most of the heroines presented in these films, so I felt compelled to make this list. :)

Honorable mentions (lovely ladies who deserve recognition but I they couldn't be in the list due to other favorites):
Jenna (Balto), Mavis (Hotel Transylvania) (with Jenna and Mavis having the honor of being the only aspects of their movies that I like), Mrs. Brisby (The Secret of NIMH), Emily (The Corpse Bride- I think Sally the Ragdoll is half Disney so I didn't include her here), Wyldstyle (The Lego Movie), and Fiona (Shrek series).

10- Lucille (A Monster in Paris):
I think she's a character who can be defined as being "sassy". I also like her grace and spunkiness when dancing and singing and how she befriends Francoeur.

9- Toothiana (Rise of the Guardians):
A great character. Spunky and energetic but knows when to act serious when the situations requires it. I also love her soft tenderly side when she's near kids (all the other Guardians share this trait which is something I love).
