They can be great conversation starters for any other Disney fan who hasn’t got to know them. Now, continue reading to get all of the exclusive information that only the most devoted fans are privy to.
#1 They are the youngest and “oldest” princesses
Despite the fact that Snow White was the first princess to appear in a Disney movie, she is the youngest princess. According to the story, Snow White was only 14 years old.
#2 Pocahontas is based on a real person.
In reality, Pocahontas, true name Matoaka, was the daughter of a Powhatan Indian chief and was born in Werowocomoco, Virginia, in the year 1595.
In 1607, English colonists arrived at Jamestown, and Pocahontas befriended them. However, tensions between the two factions intensified. Captain John Smith, the colony’s leader, was taken by Powhatan’s people. Smith said that Pocahontas appealed to the Powhatans to spare his life. Despite Smith’s alleged deliverance, relations between Englishmen and Native Americans remained tumultuous. After that, Pocahontas was taken hostage by an English ship captain. She was transported to Jamestown, where she was given the name Rebecca.
#3 Princess Belle’s dress and hairstyle are inspired by Dorothy from “The Wizard of Oz”
At the start of the film, Belle wears a Dorothy-inspired attire with comparable hues. Dorothy’s hair and eyes are the same hues (though not quite the hairstyle; one pigtail instead of two). She’s even holding a basket that looks like Dorothy’s.
#4 Mulan is not a princess
She isn’t born into royalty, doesn’t marry into royalty, and was practically born the daughter of a general who had farmland, thus being born a peasant at that time period.
#5 Elsa and Rapunzel are the only ones who have magical powers
Elsa’s power is to freeze everything and Rapunzel’s special ability is her magical hair.
#6 Rapunzel is the princess with the longest and also the shortest hair.
Yes, this is an indisputable fact. After almost completely cutting off her magic hair, Rapunzel owns the shortest hairstyle of the Disney princesses.
#7 We were able to see all the princesses together in their most modern version
In the movie “Wreck-It Ralph”, all the Disney princesses will appear at the same time. However, they are set in a completely different dimension from their original story.
#8 The only princess with a job, who still works after becoming royalty, is Tiana
In fact, Cinderella pretty much did but she just didn’t get paid for it. So, Tiana is the only princess whoever had an official job.
#9 Very few princesses wear pants
Most princesses wear dresses. And in fact, Jasmine is the only princess to wear pants throughout the film.
#10 Pocahontas and Anna are the only princesses to fall in love twice
Princess Anna of Frozen is chased by Prince Hans and Kristoff, despite the fact that only one of them has pure intentions. Both Kocoum and John Smith court Pocahontas, and if we’re looking at the second film and/or historical facts, it’s actually John Rolfe.
#11 Cinderella, Belle, and Tiana who wear gloves were not born into royalty
Cinderella, Belle, and Tiana all wear opera gloves to symbolize their royal marriages. And Disney princesses who are heirs to the throne do not wear gloves.
#12 These 3 princesses don’t come with a prince
In addition, Merida, Elsa, and Moana are also considered the three most powerful and independent Disney princesses.
#13 Merida is the only princess who has brothers.
She not only has one brother but she has 3 triplets.
#14 Belle reuses the same scene and dance steps as Sleeping Beauty
This isn’t the only time Disney films have reused animation. Animating takes a long time. Much of the labor had to be done by hand prior to the introduction of computer technology. So, to save time and money, the filmmakers reused Cinderella and Prince’s dance scenes in “Beauty and the Beast”.
#15 Jasmine is the only Disney princess that kisses the villain of the story
Jasmine is the only Disney princess to ever kiss a villain. In fact, although Gaston intended to kiss Belle, she avoided and Rapunzel was kissed on the head by Mother Gothel.
#16 This is the only princess with an on-screen daughter.
In their first film, Ariel doesn’t have a child. However, she has a daughter named Melody in the sequel “The Little Mermaid Return to the sea”.
#17 Cinderella doesn’t just lose her shoe once, she loses it 3 times.
Cinderella loses her shoe three times during the film. First, she delivers breakfast to her stepsisters and stepmother, then she flees the prince’s palace at midnight, and lastly, she runs down the stairs at her wedding.
