As you can deduct, in this article I'll explain how I paired the Disney Princesses, analysing what they have in common, so what could make them a good couple of friends. I was inspired by the Most Similar Princess Pair Countdown, made by sweetie-94.
Ariel & Jasmine.
It was very hard to choose who could be Ariel's best friend among Belle, Jasmine and Rapunzel because these four princesses have a strong spirit of adventure. At last, I chose Jasmine because she has a lot of things in common with Ariel: both hope for a their own freedom and dream to see the world out of their kingdom/palace. The new places were shown them by respective princes, and, speaking of which, I think both fell in love very fastly. And how forget that they deliberately disobeyed to their fathers? Both are a little selfish because they left their families and friends without caring that they could miss them.
Mulan & Pocahontas.
Surely, there is one thing that unites these two princesses: the indipendence. The other Disney Princess Movies are concentrated mainly on a love story (except Aladdin) and the princesses are closely bind to their own princes or completely dependent; but Mulan and Pocahontas are independent from their men. They think more about how to save their people and avoid useless deaths. In these two movies the love is in the background because they show more the storng personality of the main character.
Moreover, both have a good relationship with their fathers.
Tiana & Cinderella.
These two princesses could be best friends just because they are hardworkers. They had different objectives, because Cinderella just hoped for a better life, while Tiana wanted hardly to realize her father dreams; but both are really patient and they waited the right chance to got their own goals.
Another thing they have in common is the loss of the most important figure in their life: their fathers. I think this episode marks them very much, but they found the force in it to don't give up so easily.
Aurora & Snow White.
This was very easy to choose, it's the first pair I made for my list. The reason is simple: what haven't they in common? Mh, maybe the hair colour? Ok, I'm serious now! Both are innocent and love animals (and the animals loved them too) and, the most important thing, both were awoken by the true love first kiss. I think that if they changed the roles in their movies, the story would be practically the same. The Prince would be enchanted by Aurora's voice and the Evil Queen would be jealous of her beauty; Phillip would be charmed by Snow White's innocence and he would do anything to save her.
Rapunzel & Belle.
As I already mentioned, these two princesses are very similar for three reasons. The first one is reading, both love books. The second one is a sort of detention, both were forced to stay in a place (of course, for different cause, it's true) The third reason is their relationship with their partners; even I think that Rapunzel is similar to Ariel and Jasmine as I said, I chose Belle as her best friend for this motivation: Rapunzel and Belle gradually fell in love with Flynn and the Beast.
Moreover, both are very curious, so I think they could be good friends.
