Cinderella would never have had a happy ending without her beauty. Because the prince at the ball saw her and fell in love. Sure, who could be prettier than a blonde, blue-eyed, and sparkly-dressed princess at a ball? If Cinderella was ugly like Anastasia or Drizella, the prince might just ignore her and date someone else. So Cinderella would return home and continue her life as a maid. Yes, she wouldn't have had a happy ending without her beauty, but she wouldn't have had a sad ending either. Because if her stepmother and stepsisters weren't jealous of her, they wouldn't have kept her working like a maid. So Cinderella would be a normal person. Cindy couldn't be a princess, but at least not a maid.
If Snow White had not been beautiful, she would have remained a maid forever like Cinderella, the prince would not have fallen in love with her and would not have attempted to save her from there. But as with Cinderella, if she wasn't beautiful, her stepmother wouldn't be jealous so she could have a normal life. Unfortunately, Snow White could not meet her prince😢 .
Beauty was only affecting Belle's life on a bad side because Adam hadn't fallen in love with Belle for her looks. If Belle was ugly, Gaston wouldn't have messed with her. He wouldn't chase after her and would date one of the blonde villagers who adored him. That way, those blonde girls would be happy, and Belle would stay away from Gaston as she wished. But there is a problem... Probably the song wouldn't be called Beauty and the Beast. And also.. isn't the main theme of the movie a beauty falling in love with an ugly?!
Oh yes. Ariel probably wouldn't have impressed Eric if she wasn't beautiful. But this is not certain information because Eric was only looking for the girl with the beautiful voice who saved him.
Her beauty determined the fate of Pocahontas. If she hadn't been pretty, John Smith could have shot Poca the first time she saw him and ended the movie. Moreover, there is no downside to its beauty. Pocahontas was not envied like the other princesses. But still, everyone expected her to marry Kocoum.
Beauty doesn't change Mulan much, because Mulan spends most of the movie acting like a man. But still, everyone expected Mulan to marry a handsome man because she was beautiful.
Beauty does not impress Elsa at all, because she does not have a life of romance. Still, she is very beautiful. It doesn't do Elsa any good or any harm.
Anna is in love with Kristoff, but Anna doesn't have to be beautiful as their relationship isn't based on love at first sight.
Everyone admires Tiana in the movie because she is beautiful, hardworking and also cooks well. If Tiana was ugly, Naveen wouldn't think she was a princess and wouldn't even have met her.
Quasimodo would not try to protect Esmeralda. Because Esmeralda is a gypsy and Frollo kept saying that gypsies are bad.
If Megara had not been beautiful, Hercules would not have fallen in love with her and Megara would have been enslaved to Hades forever.
Nothing has changed. Flynn put it bluntly:
"Did I tell you that I like brunettes more than blondes?"
Thanks for reading. I would like to include Merida, Aurora, Jasmine and Moana on the list, but I'm tired of typing.
