Meet “The Disney Royal Court” along with it’s newest additions Rapunzel, Merida, and the Frozen Sisters, Elsa and Anna, and Moana!
Snow White -Snow White is a beautiful young princess born with skin as white as snow, hair as black as ebony, and lips red as a rose. She is forced to seek refuge in the home of the seven dwarfs, where she hides from her evil stepmother, the Evil Queen Grimhilde, who is jealous of Snow White’s beauty and seeks her death. Snow White is often described as a kind, optimistic, tidy and happy person who sees the good in everyone.
Cinderella– Forced into servitude by her evil stepmother, Lady Tremaine, and her evil stepsisters, Anastasia and Drizella Tremaine,Cinderella dreams of going to the ball. When all seems lost, her fairy godmother allows her to attend, where she meets and falls in love with The Prince.
Aurora– Aurora has hair of sunshine gold and lips that shame the red rose; she is often described as beautiful, kind, shy and sophisticated. She is also a hopeless romantic. At first, she is seen as a little naïve and insecure as a result of being sheltered for most of her life but, unlike Snow White, she is somewhat pluckier and more opinionated.
Ariel– Daughter of King Triton and the youngest of seven sisters, Ariel is a princess in the undersea kingdom Atlantica (according to later media in the franchise). Fascinated by the human world and tired of life under the sea, Ariel makes a deal with Ursula the sea witch, trading her voice in return for humanity. Ariel is fiercely independent and a dreamer, which is notable in her collecting of human world treasures in her private grotto. She is bold and a risk-taker.
Belle– Frustrated with her provincial village life, book-loving Belle longs for adventure. When her father Maurice is imprisoned by a hideous beast, Belle sacrifices her own freedom in return for his. At first frightened by the Beast’s physical appearance and repulsed by his selfishness, Belle learns to appreciate him after he rescues her from a pack of hungry wolves, expressing her gratitude by tending to his wounds. While the Beast’s love for Belle gradually results in him adapting a more friendly and civil manner, Belle befriends him, eventually managing to fall in love with him by the time the last petal falls off an enchanted rose, which ultimately breaks a spell cast on him and transforms him back into a handsome prince.
Jasmine– Jasmine is fierce, bold, and confident, and she rarely allows anyone tell her what to do and what not to do. Jasmine hungers for independence, tired of the restrictions laid before her by her father. She falls in love with Aladdin while he is disguised as a prince, after he takes her on a romantic ride on a magic carpet. Aladdin’s genie companion is summoned by Jafar, who uses the genie’s magic to tyrannically overthrow Jasmine’s father, the Sultan. Luckily, after Jafar’s defeat, the Sultan permits Jasmine to wed Aladdin despite his lack of royal heritage.
Pocahontas– Pocahontas is displayed as a noble, independent and highly spiritual young woman. She expresses wisdom beyond her years and offers kindness and guidance to those around her. An adventure and nature lover, in the film she appears to have shamanic powers since she was able to commune with nature, talk to spirits, empathize with animals and understand unknown languages. In the sequel, Pocahontas seems to have grown after hearing of John Smith’s assumed death. She keeps her independent spirit and playfulness, but is much more mature and self-assured than she was in the first film. During her stay in England, she nearly loses herself in the hustle and bustle of the new world and is almost turned into someone she’s not. But in the end she bravely intends to sacrifice herself for her people’s safety and returns to her homeland, finding herself, and love, once again.
Mulan– Mulan, atypical and unlike most previous female roles, is courageous and more self-reliant. She also does not fit in with the expectations of a young Chinese girl of the time; despite her natural beauty, she is clumsy, outspoken, and independent rather than graceful, silent and demure. Her meeting with the matchmaker ended in chaos because of this, (with help from a certain cricket), and the matchmaker claimed that even though she had the looks of a bride, she would never find a match. However, her courage, intelligence, and determination helped her through her adventures, in which she disguises herself as a male soldier in order to fight in the Chinese army in place of her wounded father.
Tiana– Tiana is portrayed as being a hardworking, ambitious, and beautiful young woman who has no love interest (at the start of the film). Living in New Orleans, Louisiana, Tiana strives to achieve her goal of opening her own restaurant. However, she is transformed into a frog after trying to break a spell cast by a Bokor on Prince Naveen that had changed him into a frog also. Throughout the film, the pair must embark on a quest to find a way to break the spell.
Rapunzel– A princess born with long, magical golden hair, Rapunzel, stolen from her parents at infancy, is raised by Mother Gothel, a vain woman who is also an evil witch and exploits her hair to remain young and beautiful. Incarcerated in an isolated tower for eighteen years, Rapunzel enlists the help of a wanted thief named Flynn Rider to see the floating lanterns in time for her 18th birthday.
Merida– Merida is the 16-year old daughter of Queen Elinor, who rules the kingdom alongside King Fergus. Queen Elinor’s expectations of her daughter make Merida see her mother as being distant while also causing friction between the two. Despite Elinor’s desire to see Merida as a proper royal lady, Merida is an impetuous girl who wants to take control of her own destiny. She has honed her skill in archery, and is one of the most skilled archers ever seen. She is also skilled in sword-fighting and cross-country horse riding on her horse, Angus.
Elsa- Elsa is the princess of the kingdom of Arendelle, heiress to the throne and the elder sister of Anna. Elsa has the magical ability to create and manipulate ice and snow. She inadvertently sends Arendelle into an eternal winter on the evening of her coronation. Throughout the film, she struggles first with controlling and concealing her abilities and then with liberating herself from her fears of unintentionally harming others, especially her younger sister.
Anna- Anna is the princess of Arendelle and the younger sister of Queen Elsa, who is the heiress to the throne and possesses the elemental ability to create and control ice and snow. When Elsa exiles herself from the kingdom after inadvertently sending Arendelle into an eternal winter on the evening of her coronation, fearless and faithful Anna is determined to set out on a dangerous adventure to bring her sister back and save both her kingdom and her family.
