So the whole video game gimmick is absolutely gone now and it's just a crossover CG movie from now on?

What exactly makes a Disney Princess a Disney Princess?

I see Pixar princesses are finally allowed to be there, I don't think that was the case before. Why is Pocahontas there? I remember Disney tried to market her as a Princess but later backtracked. If Pocahontas is there why isn't the Princess from the Atlantis movie there, I mean she was actually a princess.

Pocahontas is the daughter of a chief and that makes her an Native American princess. Mulan is not technically a princess at all because she has no royal ties nor did she become a princess by marriage. Right after Lea Salonga, who did Mulan's signing voice along with Jasmine's, became a Disney Legend I asked a worker at a Disney Store why she is considered a princess. She told me that she became an honorary princess when the Emperor awarded her his Crest after she saved all of China.

Anna and Elsa were originally going to join the line-up, but their way became such a massive hit that they are able to have their own brand of products. Moana's film was a box-office success and she is technically a princess because she too is a daughter of a chief, but I guess the reason why she hasn't had a coronation yet is because in her film she that she didn't liked being called a princess.

That would be Giselle. She couldn't join the line-up because Disney would've had to pay Amy Adams royalties for her likeness or something like that.

For some reason they don't count Kida from Disney's Atlantis as a Disney princess.

Sleeping Beauty didn't recoup its budget during its original release. Because of it's disappointing box-office returns, Disney did not return to the fairy tale genre until The Little Mermaid in 1989. It did, however, have successful theatrical re-releases in later years and also became popular on home video. The Princess and the Frog barely turned a profit from its theatrical run, but its merchandise and home video sales were very successful.

Trailer is out.




Not really getting a feel for the plot, and the Disney princesses were hating on men, so I'm definitely not giving it my money.

let me guess you are whining about Feminism regarding the disney princess line about asking venlope if she had to be saved by a big strong man and she said yes and what is up with that

they weren't hating on men. They were pointing out the fact that almost every disney princess has had to be rescued by a man. I think they are sick of it.

Imagine being so insecure that a comment about the Disney princesses always being rescued by a big strong man would bother you.

That's a rather silly reason to not see this movie. Literally nothing about that line implied they hated men.

I read the description first. expected something more. saw the trailer. that didn't bother me as much as I thought. from the description, i expected a longer trashing scene. but still, it's disney. they have to sneak in some over tone into things.

I'm sorry...did I just read a complaint about how a Disney Animated Movie is one big Disney Ad?

Yeeeaaaah, that's kind of how ALL their movies work.
It's how they've always worked.

I like the trailer and I love the concept of going through the internet, it looks fun. I'd just rather this be a new franchise though, Ralph should stay video game only.

The princess segment is only meta commentary on their respective films, if you can't laugh at that joke I don't know what to say. My only problem with that segment is that Kida didn't make it in, no respect for the best princess, at least a third of those aren't even princesses. A shame I'm a big fan of Atlantis and Disney refuses to acknowledge it.
