Let me just say I am a huge Дисней Анимация fan. I’ve liked every Дисней Анимация Studios или Pixar film I’ve seen. That being said, the princesses have a special place in my heart. But it’s not just nostalgia или a Любовь of fairytales (although those are factors). It’s that every princess film has been a milestone for its studio, if not for Анимация as a whole. These Фильмы matter. Big time.
