Anonymous → Tiana!

Also asked by ultramissmusic

Favorite thing about her?

R: I’ve only seen “The Princess and the Frog” twice, but Tiana is… really really special to me. She works hard to make her family proud and to make something of herself. She is determined, fearless, strong, and smart. I love that she works wholeheartedly every day and tries to make the best of her situation. What an amazing role model! She’s also ridiculously beautiful as well. Her dimples are so cute!

B: Her dedication, ambition, and work ethic. She has an ambition and she does everything in her power to achieve it.

Least favorite thing about her?

R: This is explicitly acknowledged in the film, but Tiana starts out as too single-minded. Everything in moderation! She learns to balance fun and hard work, so it all works out in the end!

B: Yeah, her single-mindedness is a little off-putting. Yes, I believe that people have to work hard to get what they want, but I don’t think they should lose out in other parts of their life at the same time.

Do I like her movie?

R: DO I. I will never ever stop loving traditional cel animation, and so seeing “The Princess and the Frog” during CGI’s prime was really wonderful for me. The soundtrack is phenomenal as well, as is the story and lesson. And let’s not forget the setting! New Orleans was depicted really beautifully through the animation. My only real qualm about the film is that Tiana and Naveen were frogs for the majority of it :( 

B: I’ve only seen it once, but I love this movie! The animation is so clean and I loved the diversity of the  characters and cultural setting.

Favorite outfit she wears?

R: Tiana’s wedding dress from the bayou! I thought the design was simply gorgeous. It compliments Tiana so well, too!

B: I really liked the blue dress that Lottie gives her at the party. It’s so elegant and bright and clean.

Favorite song from her movie?

R: I think it’s a tie between “Almost There” and “Dig a Little Deeper”! “Friends on the Other Side” is so good, though… ALL THE SONGS ARE SO GREAT.

B: I liked Dr. Facilier’s song, “Friends on the Other Side.” It was so creepy and the animation for that section was so creepy!

Favorite animal (or human) friend she has?

R: As much as I loved Louis and Ray, I’m going to have to go with Charlotte. As overly enthusiastic and kind of shallow as she is, Charlotte is as cute as a button and very sweet. She and Tiana had a really nice friendship, and I really liked that we got to see them interact as kids.

B: Yes, I love Charlotte as well. I think she serves as a good foil for Tiana, and she also seems to genuinely care about her.

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

R: As lazy as I can be sometimes, I like to think that I’m really hardworking overall. I also love my family and strive to make them proud, so I see myself in Tiana that way, too.

B: I too recognize the value and importance of hard work, although I make sure to have time for sleep and friends and music (most days).

How would I rate her prince?

R: Naveen is hella fine and becomes a very considerate and loving guy by the end, but he’s not one of my top favorites. Again, this probably has a lot to do with the fact that I’ve only seen the film twice. I still like him, though! His attempts at getting Tiana to view him more favorably are so much fun to watch, and when he made her dinner… What a charmer :D

B: Naveen’s character growth is huge. The fact that he puts her and her dreams ahead of his own was really sweet. I like him a lot.

Where does she rank on my top 10 favorite princesses?

R: Tiana is one of my top favorite princesses for sure. She’s a role model of sorts for me, because she so wonderfully illustrates the “work hard and you’ll go far” trope. Not to mention the fact that she is just so important as the first African American princess. She represents so much and I LOVE HER. 

B: It was a close battle with Mulan, but Tiana is my favorite. She’s so passionate and hard-working, to the point of ignoring any romantic possibilities, which is how I feel sometimes haha…

Anonymous → Yzma!

Favorite thing about her?

R: Okay, really, what is not to love about Yzma?? Eartha Kitt did a FANTASTIC job bringing her to life. Yzma is a wonderful villainess because she is so crazy and fun while still being a real threat. I love her character design, her frustrations, her ways of dealing with stress (smashing Kuzco’s busts was so fun to watch, AHAHA), her “mad scientist” tendencies… All in all, a fun villainess who is still rude, diabolical, and cunning.

B: I really liked her character design and style. Plus her secret underground evil lair.

Least favorite thing about her?

R: I mean…?? While I can totally understand her frustration and anger against Kuzco, Yzma is still a villainess and in the wrong for the whole film. I love how she uses her evil as a scientist, though.

B: I really didn’t like the way she treated Kronk. He was such a solid dude, and I feel like she just took advantage of him. I mean, she didn’t even like his spinach puffs.

Do I like her movie?

YES

Favorite outfit she wears?

R: As much as I like Yzma’s black dress IF IT WASN’T ON HER, I’ve gotta go with the purple one she wears when hunting for Kuzco with Kronk. The scarf accessory is a nice touch.

B: The weird frilled-lizard-esque she wears at the beginning always cracked me up.

Favorite song from her movie?

See Pacha’s ask for this!

Favorite animal (or human) friend she has?

R: KRONK. I love the entirety of “The Emperor’s New Groove,” and Kronk is a significant reason why. He is actually an A+ sidekick. Goofy, kind of slow, earnest, open, quirky, and struggling with his own internal angel and devil. He’s Yzma’s minion and does almost everything she says, but he shows room for original thought and doubt as well. Everything about Kronk is fun to watch, especially the way he and Yzma interact with each other. I LOVE KRONK (but not his sequel).

B: I also love Kronk! Everything R said! Plus Patrick Warburton uses his voice so effectively. Comedic gold.

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

R: “If you want something done right, you have to do it yourself.” Yzma and I get frustrated when we have to work with others because we both feel like we can manage everything best, LOL. I’m really good at compromising and hiding my frustration, though, so we differ there.

B: Um. I agree with R to some degree. I also hate it when people sing for my birthday in public. Don’t do that. Shhhh…

How would I rate her prince?

R: ….Kronk? LOL. Yzma strikes me as the kind of person who views romance as a waste of time because she’s got other things to prioritize.

B: Yeah I don’t think Yzma sees anyone romantically.

Where does she rank on my top 10 favorite princesses?

R: Yzma is definitely a favorite villainess of mine. As I’d mentioned in the Hades ask, I love villains who are both fun and terrible. 

B: Yzma is a wonderful villainess, for sure. I loved her facial expressions, too.

Anonymous → does pixar count??? mrs. incredible

Favorite thing about her?

B: Her feminist spirit and strength. “Leave saving the world to the men? Ladies, c’mon! I don’t think so!”

R: EXACTLY. She’s a capable mother and superhero, and I love that about her. She’s just… Pixar does a great job of adding so many layers to their characters, and Helen was just so REAL. She is a strong, assertive, and innovative woman but she also worries and is practical. I like her a lot!

Least favorite thing about her?

B: I don’t see why she didn’t just ask Bob if he was cheating on her/resuming secret hero work behind her back…

R: Because that would’ve been too easy, of course. But yes, I gotta go with B on this one. Have more faith in your husband, or at least communicate!

Do I like her movie?

B: OH MY GOD YES The Incredibles is one of my favorite Pixar movies! I have seen it so many times!

R: “The Incredibles” is definitely one of my all time favorite Pixar films. I love family stories, and then throwing superpowers into the mix?? PERFECT. I am eagerly awaiting the sequel!!!

Favorite outfit she wears?

B: The new costume that Edna makes is pretty sweet. I love that Edna let’s the creative spirit move her and makes one for everyone in the family.

R: As much as I liked her vintage costume, the new one Edna made is very sleek and svelte!

Favorite song from her movie?

B: No songs in The Incredibles, but it does have a fantastic soundtrack!

R: Mhmmmm.

Favorite animal (or human) friend she has?

B: I’m super curious about the relationship between her and Snug, the guy she borrows the jet from. I’m really looking forward to The Incredibles 2, where I think they’re going to focus on the kids growing up and into their superhero personalities, but I also wish we would get the backstory behind Helen and Bob.

R: YES!!! I basically want more backstory, because backstory is the greatest. What did Helen do “in real life” while she was in her superhero prime? How did she meet Bob? Did they hit it off immediately? What were their reactions when they found out their kids were supers too?


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

B: Her desire to protect and fight with/for her loved ones.

R: Same with me!

How would I rate her prince?

B: Bob/Mr. Incredible is pretty… wait for it… incredible, but I think he needed to communicate better with Helen about his superhero-ing.

R: Bob, I think, is a great example of “dude who was once on top of his game but must now deal with coping with the mundane.” His way of dealing with mediocrity throughout the film was very believable, I thought. I like how his frustration showed, and how he had to realize that his fixation on the past was kind of selfish and led to issues with other aspects of his life. He’s fine by me.

Where does she rank on my top 10 favorite princesses?

B: I don’t generally include her when I rank the ladies in my head, but I really like her a lot!

R: Yeah, since Pixar doesn’t hold the same nostalgia that Disney has for me (at least, the newer Pixar films), I don’t rank Helen that high. When I’m older, I’m sure I’ll be able to relate to her better.

Anonymous → Pocahontas!

Also asked by two other Anons, , and dragonstoryteller

Favorite thing about her?

B: HER HAIR IS AMAZING just. The flow. They animated it so well! Also her care for the earth and curiosity.

R: POCAHONTAS. WHAT IS NOT TO LOVE?? Her hair is indeed a work of art, and her silhouette is so sloped and elegant. I’ve always loved her tattoo as well! Her strong bond with nature and determination and bravery to stand up for what she believes in…. RAHHHHHHHHH.

Least favorite thing about her?

B: I didn’t like that she lied and snuck around with John Smith.

R: I didn’t either! Also, as a small child with her priorities straight, I could not understand why Pocahontas didn’t choose Kocuom when he was so much hotter than John Smith.

Do I like her movie?

B: Yes!

R: HELLA. Despite the lack of historical accuracy, anyway.

Favorite outfit she wears?

B: I think she only has the one in the movie? I don’t like her redesign at all.

R: Totally agree. Her winter outfit from the direct-to-video sequel wasn’t bad, though.

Favorite song from her movie?

B: “Just Around the Riverbend.” It’s a great introduction to her and her reckless spirit.

R: THE OPENING SONG. I love it so much, it sets the mood so well and has such a nice sound :)

Favorite animal (or human) friend she has?

B: MEEKO! and NAKOMA! Such good friends.

R: I love Meeko and Nakoma as well!! Nakoma is the one with the common sense and discretion, and watching her play off of Pocahontas is so great. I feel like people tend to forget about her a lot :(

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

B: Um. I also talk to animals and trees?

R: I used to do that, LOL. Her love for nature, I guess. I’m nowhere near as much of a risk-taker as her.

How would I rate her prince?

B: John Smith was one of my favorites when I was a kid. But now, knowing the real history, I don’t like him at all. In terms of Disney dudes, though, he’s okay. Sort of like a prototype for Flynn Rider. A swashbuckler who doesn’t play by the rules and explores stuff.

R: He’s okay. Never particularly liked him, but I don’t hate him? Mostly I’m like “Pocahontas is way too hot for you anyway, go back to England.” I always liked Thomas, though, HAHAHAH. Cute as a button, but a little dumb and clumsy. But he shot Kocuom, sooooooooo….

Where does she rank on my top 10 favorite princesses?

B: Oh man. Pocahontas was one of my favorites when I was little, so yeah she’s ranked pretty high.

R: Pretty high as well! She’s so gorgeous and strong and free-spirited!

We truly have the greatest followers of all time.

We totally did not anticipate the volume of asks that you guys sent asking us to talk about Disney characters. AND WE LOVE YOU ALL FOR IT ♥

The two of us had so much fun writing up our answers together and getting some nice messages about your opinions! We appreciate you all so much.

And we have a TON of messages left to go through, so never fear! We’ll be rationing them out over the next several days!

Thanks, y’all.

teacupdream → 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.

disneyprncess → 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.

kamikazefinn → 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.

Anonymous → 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.
