I grew up as a huge Disney princess fan so it’s really difficult for me to choose. Even though I see the faults in all of them as an adult, it’s too nostalgic for me to pick one I dislike!
I will have to agree on Tinkerbell though. Even as a child I thought we could never be friends because she was bratty and jealous.
And all of your reasons why you all hate a certain princess are hilarious! I love it! What a great thread!

I would have to say my least favorite is Snow White. And my favorite by far is Moana. Even though she’s new on the scene, I love that movie. She follows her gut and sets sail on an adventure alone to go save her people? Badass.

My least favorite is Ariel. Honestly, she just complains the whole time she is a mermaid (that one song she sings annoys the crap out of me. The look at this stuff isn’t it neat. Sounds like she is complaining about all her stuff! Lol), gives up everything for some guy who marries someone else. He sounds like a keeper…. Pass.
I used to love Sleeping Beauty as a child, but thats because she got to sleep and still got the prince. Lol today, that still stands. She was barely in her movie and didn’t do anything or teach any lessons IMO. But I do love prince Phillip!
I love Belle. I think she teaches real values.

Peter Pan is all kind of creepy and sad….He doesn’t want to grow up because it means making choices and facing responsibility…Wendy deserved better…she is refreshingly normal…
My favorite would be Mulan…She trained alongside the men and helped save China! That’s pretty darn impressive! My.inner feminist rejoices when seeing that movie.

Mulan and Belle are my favorite. Ariel is my least favorite…I can’t stand the idea of a girl changing herself drastically to get a guy to notice her.

My favorites would be Tiana, Belle, moana and Mulan. They all were proactive in what they wanted and don’t just sit there and dream.
My least favorite would be sleeping beauty and snow white. They did nothing but wait to be save and then marry to be happily ever after. I cringe when little girls want to watch it. Ariel and Tinkerbell are in their own categories, they have character that ain’t pretty or destructive.
Ariel change herself completely to try to get a man she don’t even know. I must prefer the original story where the prince married someone else and then she died. It shows girls why you shouldn’t change yourself or else you die (within) .

I wasn’t much into Disney princess movies, so I don’t know a lot of them all that well. That said, Ariel. The idea of literally giving up her voice scared the hell out of me. I guess that’s more of a criticism of the Little Mermaid being scary, but while I’m on that subject, do you guys remember how Ursula was going to turn Ariel’s father into a little boneless fizzley thing that would remain stuck to the ground, but still sentient?? So terrifying.
