Snow White ___________________________

In the beginning of the Grimm's Tale Schneewittchen, Snow White's mother pricks her finger with a sewing needle and three drops of her blood fall onto the snow which lay on the ebony windowsill. Oddly enough, this made her long for a daughter of a similar color scheme. While this reflects the arc of the story: (white)innocence, (red)maturity & love, and (black)death, her name particularly represents a season when the world metaphorically sleeps only to be inevitably awakened with the coming of spring.





_______________________________ Cinderella

Omitted from the Дисней version of the fairytale, Золушка was actually the cruel nickname дана to her by her stepsisters for sitting at the dying cinders of the огонь after her long days work. Cinderella's real name is never mentioned. Cinders have a number of symbolic meanings from being merely a Источник of warmth and a hidden огонь to represent rebirth in the story of the Firebird или Phoenix. In myth, the creature would die in the fiery blaze of its nest only to rise again reborn from the ashes signifying a rise to glory from the lowest of places.





Aurora ________________________________

Latin for "light" или "dawn", Aurora is her royal name дана by her parents. It may be stated in the film that this was "because she filled their lives with sunshine" but its also fitting for this princess since dawn is the time when the sleeping world awakes. It's no accident that she falls asleep at dusk and awakes upon sunrise. Incidentally one may recall her "hair of sunshine gold" but her "lips that shame the red red rose" are еще linked to her секунда name.



Briar Rose ________________________________

Briar Rose, a pseudonymn дана by her fairy godmothers also has poetic meaning. The first word BRIAR, a mass of thorny plants obviously makes sense with the story's motif but a rose also has numerous conotations. Розы have represented love, beauty, virtue, femininity, and virginity hence why it is also a symbol of the Virgin Mary. But a briar rose is a thing of beauty surrounded by harsh thorny bramble -- much like Aurora herself in the замок surrounded by the forest of thorns.





__________________________________ Ariel

Ariel's name probably has the most mysterious of origins but there are two possible sources that equally make sense. Song writers Alan Menken and Howard Ashman (both of Jewish heritage) had a surprising amount of creative input in the story having named several of Ariel's sisters. This could leave reason to suspect they may have also suggested the name Ariel, Hebrew for "Lion of God". Lions are well known symbols of strength and courage.




The секунда possibility which actually ties into the first is the connection to the word 'ARIA'. Hebrew for "lioness". However in Italian it means "air" and is a musical term for a solo vocal piece with a light instrumental accompaniment. This probably makes the most sense considering music, and not lions, is the most obvious if not significant factor in Ariel's story.









Belle ________________________________

The most straight вперед of names, Belle is literally French for "beauty". Granted this makes sense since Belle's character is meant be physically attractive. However beauty is not just restricted to our visual sense but can encompass all the senses and even that of our spirit. Intended to contrast the physical ugliness of the beast, Belle's purpose in the story is ultimately to transform the beast's soul to match the beauty of her own. She is everything the beast must aspire to be.





________________________________ Jasmine

Most people assume жасмин is merely a reference to the жасмин цветок and to a certain degree it is. жасмин is actually indigenous to the Middle East. Known as "yasmine" to the natives, the цветок is so pleasantly fragrant that the name translates to "gift from God" in Arabic. In the western world it can represent sensuality, elegance, and modesty -- a particular virtue Аладдин или Ali Ababwa must obtain to win the сердце of the princess.




Pocahontas _________________________

Pocahontas is unique being that she is the only Дисней Princess whom we know actually existed. Historically she is known by three separate names. Powhattan for "little mischief", Pocahontas was actually a nickname дана to her because of her precocious and playful nature. Her real name was Matoaka или "bright stream between the hills". This can easily be linked to her affinity for rivers in the film. Her third name Rebecca, which she adopted after being baptized, is Hebrew for "to bind или bring together" and this is exactly what she did for her people and the Jamestown settlers.





___________________________________ Mulan

The story of Мулан is not a fairytale but a legend potentially based on real events of a woman named Hua Mulan which literally translates to "flower wood orchid", или the magnolia. Magnolias are a symbol of perseverance and nobility. The film makes reference to this in the scene when Мулан and her father sit beneath the магнолия tree. Her father subtly parallels his daughter to a late магнолия [mulan] blossom and how it will one день be the most beautiful of all.




Tiana ___________________________________

Potentially derived from the Greek word 'TIANI' meaning "princess", being a Популярное name among African-Americans it may be fitting that the first black Дисней Princess was named Tiana. However this was not her first name choice. Originally her name was Maddy but was deemed too racially insensitive. This is odd since Maddy is short for Madeline derived from Magdeline. Mary Magdeline was a friend of Иисус and only disciple strong enough to witness his crucifixion and the first to witness his resurrection -- a woman who went on a long journey and acheived a great spiritual transformation.


_______________________________ Rapunzel

Also known as "rampion" или "bellflower", rapunzel is an edible plant. In the Grimm's Tale, it was specifically this plant that a poor man украл, палантин from a witch's garden to feed his pregnant wife. As punishment, the witch took the poor couple's daughter and raised her away in a tower without any doors или stairs. This plant is not only beautiful but is also noted for its ability to grow in very inhospitable soils. Rapunzel is very much like her namesake plant in that she too flourishes in beauty, kindness and curiosity despite being locked away in a cruel world. (she will also be the first Дисней Princess who's main color is purple.)
 Her redesign is better face wise compared to some older franchise pictures
Her redesign is better face wise compared to some older franchise pictures
I noticed in the Redesign Accurancy countdown that some people talked about Snow White's redesign as if it was worse than what she looked like before, it's partly true, but in some of her older franchise pictures she looks worse at least in terms of 4 things, her skin color, her haircolor, her lipcolor and her eyecolor so with a help of some pictures and the redesign I'll Показать Ты the last part of the truth

 Look at the color, this is 10 times worse than her haircolor in the redesign

After all the hype, merchandise and racial Дебаты The Princess and the Frog finally made it to the big screen, варенье, джем packed with a variety of different aspects that where inspired by other media.

Now lets look at the concoction of literature, Назад films and art stirred together in the Gumbo pot to make Disney's latest fairy tale.

 Here's some villains. Not necessarily the ones in the lineup, but Ты try getting a picture that has just them in it. >:I

I'm in an Статья mood now.
I've been a girl of the villain since I was little. No matter how much I loved Batman, I always loved the guy he'd just roundhouse kicked through a building too. Equally so, I Любовь Дисней villains. The ones matched with the princesses aren't generally my favourites, but at least they're easy to order and rant about.
Yes, I swear a lot. But this is about villains, so it's going to be some badass shit anyway so it doesn't matter half as much.
A lot of people had a go at me for commenting in my last Статья that I'm not a very funny person. Rather than let that deter me,...

There's no denying that Дисней has produced some beautiful princesses, as well as some.. well, not so pretty princesses. I'm going to give Ты my Список of the вверх ten prettiest princesses, based on the way they look in their original movies.

#10: SNOW WHITE
I think everyone saw that coming. I'll give her this at least: she has nice eyelashes. And nice.. lips? I'm really trying to be nice here. There's nothing about this girl that is very attractive. Her alien-looking nose, her hairstyle, the fact that she looks about 12 years old.. I know that's close to her age, but still. There's really no pictures...
