Belle!

Also asked by three (presumably different) Anons, voilamissdior, underlandian, silvereye12, and imaprincessdammit

Favorite thing about her?

R: When I was younger, my favorite thing about Belle was her love for reading. I was the exact same way as a kid. I read rather than talk to other people LOL, and I also read while walking and doing really anything at all. I read so much in poor lighting conditions that I now wear glasses v.v;; ALSO, the fact that she loves her father and wasn’t afraid to shut down and kick out Gaston.

B: Yes. All of those things. And how she took the weird af castle in stride and got to know and love everyone there, but also never stopped loving her father.

Least favorite thing about her?

R: Er… I don’t think I dislike anything about her…? OH, WAIT. When I was younger, I got very frustrated that Belle tried to touch the rose. After she was ~~FORBIDDEN~~ from going to that wing of the castle. I remember thinking it was disrespectful of her, but now that I’m older, I’m like “well Beast did lock her up in his house, like, go wreak hell, girl.”

B: Nothing…?

Do I like her movie?

R: Yes, I do! The stained glass beginning is one of my favorite parts, especially. That and the library scene [dreamy sigh]. The story is a wonderful take on the fairytale, especially since Belle is such an intelligent girl who is willing to make huge sacrifices for the things she believes in.

B: Yes! I love the music and character designs in particular.

Favorite outfit she wears?

R: The yellow ball gown!! Without a doubt. I love how it’s so fluffy underneath the skirt. Plus the sleeves are sexy as hell.

B: While I see R’s point, I always really liked her fluffy winter cloak thing.

Favorite song from her movie?

R: “Little Town!” I love how we’re eased into the film’s setting with the bits of dialogue woven into the song, as well as the townspeople’s chatter. Plus, following Belle along (especially to the library and then the pasture!) was great!

B: “Tale as Old as Time,” although I love the opening song, too!

Favorite animal (or human) friend she has?

R: Well, I don’t think the family horse counts here, so n/a

B: Do Lumiere and Cogsworth count?

Which trait of her personality do I most see in myself?

R: Her love for reading and her love for family.

B: Same for me.

How would I rate her prince?

R: Well. This is a little complicated. Beast aggravated me because he was a spoiled, selfish, and aggressive brat. At first! Belle really did help to make him a better person, and then he’s sweet and a little emotionally clumsy, but he does a lot of growing up! CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT. By the end, I really liked Beast (Adam?) because he too had learned respect and what it means to sacrifice for the one you love.

B: Dude, R’s answers are on point. I think the most important thing about Beast/Adam is that he did learn and develop as a person, which I greatly respect in a character.

Where does she rank on my top 10 favorite princesses?

R: Not particularly high, to be honest! Not because I don’t like her, but because there are other ladies that I loved more, personally.

B: She ranks pretty high for me. I don’t know exactly where. The Disney Renaissance Era produced a lot of good ladies.

 

Cinderella

Favorite thing about her?

R: Her strength. A lot of people like to talk about how the older Disney ladies don’t have personalities or are weak or just sit around waiting for a prince to arrive, but that’s really just never true. It’s especially not true with Cinderella. I love her because she did her best every day in a toxic environment and still managed to stay optimistic, respectful, and poised. She just… it’s never easy to leave your family when you have nothing to fall back on, even if your family is horrific. She stayed, got her night of happiness at the ball, and was content to live out the rest of her life with just that memory. I mean, where was she going to go all by herself if she left? Luckily, she got the happy ending she deserved, so she didn’t have to worry about that.

B: Yes, you put it so much better than I could. She was one of my favorites when I was younger because my dad used to tell her story as one of my bedtime stories. I always admired her ability to work hard, and I that she made the best of a bad situation.

Least favorite thing about her?

R: It is her best characteristic, but also her worst, I believe: her all-encompassing forgiveness. Not everyone deserves forgiveness.

B: I mean I don’t know if she was in a position to do this, but I wish she stood up for herself a little more.

Do I like her movie?

R: I really, really, really do :)

B: YES. Classic.

Favorite outfit she wears?

R: You know, I think I really just liked them all! Her work clothes, her mother’s dress, her BEAUTIFUL ball gown, and her lovely wedding dress.

B: I like the ball gown. It’s elegant and tasteful, especially compared to some of the more colorful/gaudy dresses we see at the ball itself..

Favorite song from her movie?

R: “Sing Sweet Nightingale.” It’s very short, I know, but that scene where she’s cleaning the floors and has all the multi-colored bubbles… It’s one of my favorite scenes from the film.

B: “A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes.” (I have a lot of weird dreams, so I don’t know what my heart is wishing for.) It was a nice introduction to Cinderella, and I think it gave us some insight into her character right off the bat.

Favorite animal (or human) friend she has?

R: Jacques! Gus was a little too slow for my younger and significantly more impatient self, and so he frustrated me, ahahah. The scene after the corn and the animals being fed… I would end up yelling at Gus to hurry up before Lucifer killed him, LOL. Jacques was much more daring and a great leader.

B: I loved to hate Lucifer. He had that whole Tom and Jerry thing going with the mice.

Which trait of her personality do I most see in myself?

R: Her emotional strength. It is so hard to forgive people and to keep persevering, but it is something I really value about myself.

B: Her absolute faith that if she kept persevering, things would turn out well in the end. I firmly believe that if you work hard and do your best, you will succeed (although a little luck does help).

How would I rate her prince?

R: Well, we don’t really know anything about Charming other than the fact that he loves his father, gets an A+ in Doing Princely Things To Be Painted For My Dad’s “Office,” and was bored by the fact that he had to choose a wife out of tons of ladies. He seemed nice enough, but I still think he ought to have been with the Grand Duke when hunting for Cinderella. That brief moment of “please god no” when Charming sees Anastasia and Drizella is PRICELESS, though.

B: HA! Yes. I haven’t seen any of the sequels (which is where I think they develop his character more?), but he seems like a decent enough fellow. Should’ve known to get her digits earlier in the evening, though. Rookie mistake.

Where does she rank on my top 10 favorite princesses?

R: Cinderella is one of my favorite princesses now that I’m older. She’s just so good.

B: My hair used to look a lot like hers, which is I think why I was drawn to her as a child. I am exceptionally fond of her, but I don’t know if I would really call her a favorite.

Kairi?

Unfortunately, neither of us have played “Kingdom Hearts,” plus Kairi would probably count as Square Enix rather than Disney…

Princess Eilonwy

Also asked by Anonymous (oh honey yes you spelled that wrong, but I can never spell it write either -B.)

B: I have never seen this movie! But I’m sure R and I will watch it sometime…

Favorite thing about her?

R: NOT ONLY HAVE I SEEN THIS MOVIE, I HAVE READ ALL THE BOOKS IN THE CHRONICLES OF PRYDAIN. I absolutely adore Eilonwy. What I love most about her, though, is the fact that she will take no crap from ANYONE. She’s smart, witty, level-headed, and says the cutest rambling little things.

Least favorite thing about her?

R: NOTHING.

Do I like her movie?

R: I am exceptionally fond of “The Black Cauldron,” but I think it was not good at all as an adaptation. I still enjoyed it, mind you, but the book series is FANTASTIC. Eilonwy is an utter BOSS in it. I also played the PC game based on the Disney film. It was surprisingly difficult, but a lot of fun! The best part was whenever I messed up and got a very solemn “you died and all is lost” type of message each time.

Favorite outfit she wears?

R: Well, she only has one. I really like it, though! Something that always annoyed me, however, are the little wispy bangs (???) at the sides of her face.

Favorite song from her movie?

R: No songs in this one!

Favorite animal (or human) friend she has?

R: Er, I don’t think her magical bauble counts. Would Gurgi? Confession: I hated him as a child because I got easily aggravated. Now, I’m super fond of that pungent little thing.

Which trait of her personality do I most see in myself?

R: Her wit, I’d like to think! And definitely her rambling, if we’re going to be honest, HAHAH. And let’s not forget her little girl-power rant to Taran after they escape the castle!

How would I rate her prince?

R: T A R A N. He’s the sweetest, most embarrassing, prideful little goofball with a heart of gold and a thick skull. The books elevated him to one of my most precious literary heroes, although he’s not my favorite Disney dude.

Where does she rank on my top 10 favorite princesses?

R: Pretty high, I’d say! This is about 75% due to the books, however, because they better showcase her character.

Kida!

Also asked by , agentiz​, flyingdannywolf​, and (a presumably different) Anonymous.

Favorite thing about her?

R: THE FACT THAT ONE OF THE FIRST THINGS SHE DOES WHEN WE MEET HER IS FLAWLESSLY CYCLE THROUGH LANGUAGES AND PUNCH MOLE IN THE FACE AFTER HE’S BEING CREEPY. Plus…. she’s old and still hella fit and fine.
B: YES I LOVE HER LANGUAGE SKILLS and how when Milo is like look this thing flies she’s like ALRIGHT LET’S GO ON A MAGIC FLYING ROCK THING RIDE oh man and the swimming thing cracked me up

Least favorite thing about her?

R: Maybe it was her sudden trust in the strangers who crash-landed into her home. It upset me because I was like “KIDA NO, NEVER COMPLETELY TRUST FOREIGNERS WHO SMASH INTO YOUR TERRITORY UNIVITED,” but that certainly didn’t make me dislike her.
B: Yeah there’s nothing I really dislike about her, but I feel like we also didn’t learn too much about her? The movie is very Milo-centric.

Do I like her movie?

B: YES! Very much. The diverse cast of characters is fantastic.
R: I completely agree with B!! I remember going to Disney World when Atlantis was about to be released and sitting in on a session where one of the animators sketched Milo for us. My dad let me go up and talk to her afterwards, and she drew me a Mickey Mouse and autographed it. It also said “good luck,” because I told her I also loved to draw. Then I LOST IT SOMEWHERE IN MY HOUSE.

Favorite outfit she wears?

BDoesn’t she only have the one? It’s a good look on her, for sure!
R: Well, she has another outfit at the end of the film when she and Milo see off the rest of the gang, and it’s very regal, but I love her first outfit. The top is so cool!

Favorite song from her movie?

B: No songs in Atlantis :(
R: Mhmmm.

Favorite animal (or human) friend she has?

B: umm….
R: Yeah, n/a (HAHAHA WAIT WOULD MOLE COUNT)

Which trait of her personality do I most see in myself?

B: Her willingness to explore and make new friends.
R: Her love for her father and strong sense of duty.

How would I rate her prince?

B: Milo is such a sweetheart! I don’t know where I’d rank him though…
R: Milo is an adorable, awkward nerd. Therefore, I like him a lot. Not a top fave, but definitely up there! I loved that he was so willing to learn and then STAY and dedicate himself to Kida’s culture and lifestyle.

Where does she rank on my top 10 favorite princesses?

B: Um. Maybe top fifteen?
R: Kida is headstrong and kickbutt and great, but I didn’t watch “Atlantis” enough times to really cement the kind of fond nostalgia that I have for other Disney ladies. I like her a lot, especially now that I’m older, but not a top fave.

Mulan.

Also asked by beatnikdinosaur, greenjokrd, robins-queen, shoshele, and Anonymous.

Favorite thing about her?

B: How she doesn’t “fit the mold,” speaks her mind, and loves her family.
R: Family narratives slay me and destroy me. The fact that the film is driven by Mulan’s love for her father and her search for a sense of self-worth and pride… don’t look at me, I’m getting emotional.

Least favorite thing about her?

B: Her initial attempts at being a man gave me the most painful bout of secondhand embarrassment.
R: Oh god, I totally agree. I love Mulan. She’s so earnest and sweet and innovative and SDKLFJSD

Do I like her movie?

B: Very much!
R: YES.

Favorite outfit she wears?

B: I like her armor a lot. It’s a good look and the colors are strong. I mean I’m an armor kind of person.
R: When I was younger, I loved her look when she had to meet the matchmaker—it was so beautiful. Now, I think she looks so pretty in the last outfit of the film.

Favorite song from her movie?

B: Dude. Is there anybody who doesn’t love “Be A Man.” Like c’mon.
R: True! But “Reflection” is the song most near and dear to my heart from this film. I used to sing it all the time around my house to my parents :D

Favorite animal (or human) friend she has?

B: MUSHU! I love Eddie Murphy, so his humorous additions were much appreciated.
R: I love all three of Mulan’s companions. Khan is the wonderful silent and stoic component to the group, Crickee is the earnest and nice one with a hidden side of sass, and Mushu is the hilarious and outspoken leader. Their dynamic is fantastically done, especially since two of them can’t talk!

Which trait of her personality do I most see in myself?

B: Um. Familial love. Clumsiness with new tasks. Work ethic to develop mastery.
R: LOVE FOR FAMILY AND RESPECT FOR ANCESTORS. The drive to make those near and dear proud.

How would I rate her prince?

B: Shang? He’s fit as all get out, that’s for sure. And I really liked that he was willing to go after her and respects her. (“You fight good,” though. Really, Shang? Really?)
R: SHAAAAAAAAAAANG. He’s fantastic. His adeptness in training an army of rookies and quickly taking over for his father… He’s sweet and clumsy, and he’s also hot as hell, LOL.

Where does she rank on my top 10 favorite princesses?

B: Top five, for sure. Probably number two.
R: Definitely one of my favorites! I have such a soft spot for her :)

Aurora!

Favorite thing about her?

B: Her hair.

R: HER CHARACTER DESIGN. Gosh, she’s so lovely, her silhouette is so angular and her hair is magnificent, plus her outfits are simple and elegant.

Least favorite thing about her?

B: She doesn’t really develop over the course of the movie.

R: The fact that she has so little dialogue :( She has a personality that we get to see in the first half of the film, but I wish it’d gotten room to breathe and grow.

Do I like her movie?

B: Not really. I mean, I’ve only seen it once. (It was one of the movies R made it her mission to introduce me to in order to rectify my Disney deprived childhood.)

R: I’ll just tell you right now that there are no Disney movies I don’t like, LOL. I love “Sleeping Beauty.” Its aesthetic is not of the typical Disney animated film (just look at the scenery). The beauty of the animation goes without saying.

Favorite outfit she wears?

B: The blue dress! And her starting dress is nice. I like her style.

R: I also like her blue dress! I prefer it to her pink dress, actually.

Favorite song from her movie?

B: Are there any songs besides “Once upon a Dream”?

R: Yeah, it’s just “Once Upon a Dream,” but that song is so cute :)

Favorite animal (or human) friend she has?

B: I like that owl. The one she dances with in the beginning. He seems like a bro.

R: The owl for sure. I love how he gets to be the “prince” before Philip comes along, hahah!

Which trait of her personality do I most see in myself?

B: How she dances around randomly singing to herself. I do that in the kitchen a lot… Although our styles are vastly different.

R: Her willingness to indulge people. The look she gives her three fairy godmothers when they shoo her out of the house on her birthday just screams “lol okay, I know something’s up, but sure, I’ll just chill outside and pick berries.” Also her fantastic sidelong glances.

How would I rate her prince?

B: I like Philip. He doesn’t crack my top five, though, since I don’t know much about him. He’s a handsome enough fellow and he does slay the dragon, so he fulfills the bare minimum of princely duties, I suppose.

R: Philip is handsome as hell, and obviously a bit progressive, what with his “it’s the 14th century!” comment to his father, LOL. He just seems like a really nice guy, it’s rather unfortunate we didn’t get too much space to see a full-fledged personality.

Where does she rank on my top 10 favorite princesses?

B: She ranks pretty low in my book. I don’t feel like I really know that much about her…

R: I’m definitely not giving out number rankings for anyone, because I can’t choose favorites or order things. I would say that Aurora is not in my top favorites, just because I also feel like I don’t know too much about her.
