I really like Snow White. She started everything for Walt, and made Disney a thing. Being the first princess, of course Snow isn't going to be as perfect or well rounded as well as them, but she's great for a starter. What i really like about her is that throughout her whole movie, she didn't complain about anything. She didn't complain about almost being killed (that's so weird to type), she didn't complain about cleaning all the time, or about the dwarves at all. She also had a huge heart, and didn't push away the old lady when she came to the window/door. I really think Snow White is one of the best role models out of all the Disney princesses because of how optimistic she is, and being with our world today, I think everyone needs a bit of it in their life.
Even though I don't have a favorite Disney Princess list (yet, I may try to sort one out sooner or later after this article), Cinderella will forever be my favorite. I honestly love how witty and clever she can be sometimes, out smarting an abusive family that thinks of her no more than a servant to them and not a step-sister or step-daughter. Never once did she try to do any harm to anyone, or try to ruin their posessions. And when she finally did get her "dream come true" from her fairy godmother she thanked her plenty. I honestly 100% can't see why people would hate her, as Cinderella isn't too nice but isn't too mean. She's got a lot of common sense, self love, and treats everyone as she would treat herself. Her temper isn't huge, and she's well-rounded.
Is it weird I have really nothing to say about Aurora? Even though she's my second favorite, I honestly have no opinion on her except she's graceful, gentle, and polite. I guess since Aurora had a pretty easy-going life (up until the whole needle thing), she didn't face any difficulties that developed her character more. I don't see any flaws in her, but I don't see anything superior, either.
I like Ariel. I don't love her but I've got a strong liking for her that's grown over the past month.
A lot of people say that Ariel's ignorant or selfish for her decision, but I say for her decision, shes' grown up. Ariel's sixteen, going onto seventeen soon, and she needs to get her shit straight. Yeah, she wasn't the "perfect" daughter for a king, but were any of her sisters really? We see absolutely no scenes where they explain all the stupid things her sisters probably did, so why do people say Ariel's the only ignorant one?
When Ariel made the decision to sell her voice to Ursula to get human legs, she was ready to take on a batch or responsibilities. She was willing to learn to walk, how to use human objects, and adapt to their life style. She was following her dream, her goal, and sometimes in order to do that in life you need to let go of your family and move to other places. Of course Ariel wouldn't of completely cut off communication with her father or sisters, because she knew she could get Eric, and once she got her voice back she could talk to them again. Back when the movie was made, it was common a lot for girls between the ages of sixteen and up to finally get married and start a family, so she was probably pretty prepared and ready for that. (I'm not talking about the 1989 period, by the way).
Also, I don't find Ariel ignorant; I find Ursula to be unfair. No one else was going to do this for Ariel, (turn her into a human) and once Ariel got it Ursula totally bull shitted on it.
Hence, Ariel's probably going to be another one of my favorites.
