There has been some confusion on what it takes to be a princess. Many people are saying that Mulan shouldn't be an official princess, because she's just ordinary and even though Shang has some nice abbs, he is not a prince.
So I decided to write this article to tell you the exact requirements for a Disney heroine
to become a Princess. I'm not that popular on here and it's not really my place to tell people whats what, but I'm going to do it anyway. If you disagree, disagree nicely.
Requirement #1:You must be human
This one is pretty obvious. Take Nala for example;she is a princess. She married Simba, a king. But she's a lion. & how stupid would a lion look, standing next to a smiling Snow White? Yeah. That's what I thought. This also explains why Tinkerbell isn't flapping her wings on the banner.
Requirement #2:Your film must be a musical
Sorry Tink. Thanks for taking it well, Nala.
No, you don't have to sing every five seconds, but you've got to have some songs! This is why Kida is not a Princess, and why Mulan was put in the lineup. Every Princess film has at least one song.
Requirement #3:You have to sing in your film
I know, shocking, isn't it?
Woah there Jane. Did you think just because you have some amazing songs in Tarzan
you would be added up? Don't think so. You also have to sing. Not a complete solo, remember, Belle and Jasmine don't have one(unless you can count Belle reprise as a solo). You just have to sing. So this explains Jane, and probably other heroines and I can't remember right now.
Requirement #4:You have to be good all through the movie
Just because I don't sing? Yes, just because Jane.
No princess ever started out "bad" then turned "good". This is why Meg from Hercules
wasn't added. She was helping Hades in the beginning, so technically, she could be considered a villain. This isn't, obviously, a good role model and Princesses are supposed to be, so she wasn't put next to the princesses. I still love her though. I'd like to give credit to Swanpride
for giving me this idea.
Requirement #5:You're old enough to kiss someone
Wow, okay, I guess Meg doesn't give a ____. You go Meg.
I didn't know how exactly to word this. I think Pocahontas is in like her twenty's, and Snow White is thirteen, so I couldn't say you have to be a teenager. You just have to be old enough for your love to be believable. This is why Wendy from Peter Pan
and Alice from Alice in Wonderland
are not added to the lineup.
Wendy, I know right? Crazy. No need to be so mad, Alice.
Do you think these are pretty good requirements? If you have another you think is really important, please comment, I will add it if I feel like I missed it and it's a good one. Thanks for reading!
