Like Eilonwy, if Atlantis' Kida had also gone nuch better, and the again that the fiilm is a non-musical, and that kida is a stronger female, but not a princessy kind, though she is one, would she have fitted nicely with the offical group or specfic r
It could kind of go either way. In some ways Kida fits in better in the line up than say Mulan or Pocahontas because she is of royal heritage. In other ways, a few things would've clashed with the original ideals of the line up.
Since the DP line up is built on dreams and romance, Kida's character wouldn't have fit very well. Milo, though he is adorable, isn't exactly what little girls dream of in a prince. Kida isn't the princess type either, like you said. She's athletic and strong. But then again so are Mulan and Pocahontas.
I think since her movie is not a musical it would've stopped her from joining the line up UNLESS her movie rolled in the big bucks.Like record making dollars and such.
It's not her being a strong female that would prevent her from joining the line up basically, it's her lack of marketability. She doesn't sing, she doesn't have a "masculine" prince to pair her up with in a cutesy fashion, and you can't really glitz her up. If she'd been added to the line up, she would've been either ignored or stuffed in the background with Pocahontas and Mulan.
Kida would've fit in well with Mulan and Pocahontas, not so much the line up as a whole. so I really doubt she would'be been added. Disney doesn't really pay attention to the older fans, the whole point of the line up is to market to little girls who don't fully understand what each princess stands for. To the people they're marketed too, they're just "so pretty" and they "sing so well."
