I don't think those Leia is a Disney princess now are all jokes, some are but not all and if Pixar girls are now becoming princesses then I guess why not? I don't know how Disney Princesses are doing now but I'm guessing decent enough but you definitely don't see merchandise everywhere like you used to, and even if not they had a good run giving Disney plenty of money in the 00's, same with Tinkerbell. Ironically the reason they did the Marvel/Star Wars acquisitions which is now what Disney is focusing on was because they wanted to get the boy market once again, they already had the girls market with the Princesses and their live action shows. Disney tried a few times with Power Rangers but it didn't work and instead sold them for cheap and went for Marvel.

Dumb. Dumb. Right up there with stuff like, "______ actor/actress says they want to play _____ comic book movie role!!" articles. As in meaningless.
All of those are just jokes...or better said, people trying to be funny/clever and failing. Nobody genuinely believes that those characters are going to JOIN the official Disney Princess lineup, they're just throwing the term "Disney Princess" around without really knowing what that means.

For example, Anna and Elsa from Frozen, Moana, and Elena of Avalor are NOT Disney Princesses. They are princess/royal characters from Disney, but they are not a part of the official lineup. Most people don't know this and assume they are because they don't even realize that there IS an official lineup. It's not that hard to understand.

Snow White, Cinderella, Aurora, Ariel, Belle, Jasmine, Pocahontas, Mulan, Tiana, Rapunzel and Merida are, as of right now, the only official Disney Princesses. Anna and Elsa were supposed to be added but Frozen got so popular that they made it's own franchise, and they wanted the same thing to happen with Moana but it in no way shape or form did, so she might end up getting added at some point.

As someone who works in retail I remember when the Disney Princess line first started and Alice from Alice Wonderland was actual part of the line but only very shortly.

When I met Paige O'Hara back in April I told her how much she and the character of Belle have meant to me in my life. I have always loved both Belle and the film Beauty and the Beast, but in late 2008 I began to love both of them even more than I did before. There was a man who was so incredibly rude to me, but everyone else thought he was the greatest guy in the entire world. This situation and his egotistical personality made him so much like Gaston. I really was the only person to see him for who he truly was. When I told Paige my story and how I loved how the fact that Belle knew how much of a jerk Gaston was and she didn't care if everyone else loved him that truly meant a lot me.

I'm just going to leave this here in regards to Cinderella


And this in regards to Belle


Leave these poor women alone and let them be the unmovable bricks that they are. I'll defend them with a blunt stick.

Since the “Dream Big Princess” campaign has been such a success, the initiative will provide 21 girls and women from 13 different countries with the opportunity to develop short films about those real world women who inspire them.

For the past three years towards the end of summer, this has been one of my favorite things to watch before I go back to work.



While Moana hasn't officially joined the line-up yet, Disney has just recently released a new song and music video with her voice actress Auli'i Cravalho. The song is titled "Live Your Story" and its part of the 'Dream Big Princess' campaign.
