Unlike SB vs M, this one had some mixed results for some of the questions.

O = Original
R = Remake
O and R = Original and Remake

Favorite Cinderella
O 7
R 2

Ella and Cinderella were both equally good characters, they were both kind, both tried to make the best out of a bad situation, and both had courage. There are mixed feelings for Ella though; she was constantly smiling even when being insulted, she was given a poor reason to stay in her home, her character used the "always be kind" in a way that made her a doormat for her stepfamily even when her father was alive, and while the original Cinderella...

Favorite Belle
O 4
R 3

Both versions of Belle are fine, but there is something about both of them that people love that makes them prefer one over the other. The people who picked original Belle grew up with Paige O'Hara's voice who put her heart and soul in her role as Belle, and then the people who picked remake Belle like that she's an inventor. One user said they prefered original Belle because they didn't like Emma's acting and compared to Paige Emma was pretty wooden and even with any positive changes made to her Belle bad acting can ruin...

Okay I have this movie on blu-ray and dvd so I don't even have an excuse for being late on putting this article up except maybe this; I don't like this movie as much as I used to...

Tonight's rewatch: Beauty and the Beast 2017 remake
Last time watched: 2017

How much did I like this movie as a kid?
I watched this movie as an adult but I still like to think I'm a kid at heart. So if you've read my article for Beauty and the Beast, you know I have a huge love for Beauty and the Beast, for nostalgia reasons and because I just love the movie. So when I watched the trailer for this movie I felt so much...

So I'm going to be really honest with you. After watching Pocahontas 2 and Mulan 2 I really really really really don't want to watch this movie. That's why it took me so long to watch it and write this article and the reason I'm only just now doing it is because I borrowed this movie from the library almost 2 weeks ago and I have to return it tomorrow.

Here's the final article! I got to say, I'm kinda bummed that not a lot of people participated in this but it is what it is :)

Favorite Aladdin
O 5
R 1
O and R 1

Personally, I thought Mena did a great job for the most part, but Aladdin was changed from being a confident smooth talker to a socially awkward dork (and I mean dork in a nice way). The original Aladdin had a couple awkward moments where he stumbled over the right words or said the wrong thing but they barely happened. Remake Aladdin suddenly became incredibly awkward at the drop of the hat at one point in the movie. Some people probably...

After all that waiting here's the results of the first Old vs New survey, Sleeping Beauty vs Maleficent! I think this one is the only one where pretty much everyone answered the same thing and I'm not really surprised by the results for this one. The results are from the answers of users and my own answers.

R = Remake

Favorite Aurora

R 1

I didn't get much of an explaination as to why most people preferred to the original over the remake, the only explainations I got was one person said they thought that Elle Fanning's acting was stiff for some of the...

Hey, guys! I recently returned home from the new Aladdin movie, and I have to say it was a lot of fun! Now that I’ve seen this movie, I’m going to give you my full review. However, before I get into this, I should inform you that while I do really like the animated version, I would not consider it to be one of my favorite Disney movies, and this wasn’t a movie I ‘grew up with’ and watched all of the time. I was also quite excited since seeing the first teaser trailer and thought that it looked pretty great from what I had seen from it. So if you are a massive fan of the animated version...

This is a movie I've been looking forward to rewatching for a while :) I love the Disney Princess movies (except maybe Brave, still need to watch that again) but The Little Mermaid brings back so much nostalgia for me. This movie isn't number 1 on my favorite DP movie list but it's still one of my all-time favorite movies.

Today's rewatch: The Little Mermaid
Last time watched: 2017

How much did I like this movie as a kid?
I hope you're all comfortable because this is going to be a long one. When I was little mermaids were my favorite thing and it was all because of The Little Mermaid. For the...

I shall begin this article unconventionally, by speaking of something personal. This year has been very rough for me in a lot of ways. The roughness has impacted every single sphere of my life, from my finances, to my job, to my love life (which remains laughable), and to my very health. I have been really sick. I relate to the Aladdin of the 1992 film, even more so now, than when I first shook his hand in 1992. I relate to being constantly dirt poor, scared out of my mind, living day to day on the edge of the precipice, and skirting by through just the slimmest of margins. Every day is starting...

Tangled is my favorite Disney movie for many reasons besides the wonderful storyline and beautiful imagery. I really relate to Rapunzel in so many ways. I try to be optimistic and see the beauty in the small things in life. I try to stay hopeful and occupy my time with many hobbies. I have so many interests and love learning about them and learning about the world and other cultures. We also share physical features, brown hair and green eyes, and prefer walking outside barefoot. I also have some German heritage, so I relate to her that way as well.

My mother also acts a lot like Mother Gothel....

Okay so I didn't even need to watch this today because I was able to watch it a few days ago at a birthday party :P I would have put this up then but I wanted to stay consistent.

Sunday's rewatch: Beauty and the Beast
Last time watched: Valentine's Day 2017

How much did I like this movie as a kid?
So, like Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, this movie scared me when I was little because of how scary some of the animation was. When this movie was released on dvd for the first time in 2002 or 2003, I didn't want to watch it because I thought I was still going to be scared of it. But then my stepmom...

The infamous line that annoys a lot of Disney fans, including myself. I felt like I should just give an FYI as to why exactly this whole "thing" in Frozen bothers me, because I think some people are unclear. Plus, I felt like writing an article, so why not?

1. Anna's motivation is pulled out of nowhere.
In writing, there's the thing called set up and payoff. Throughout the whole first sequence of the film, which is essentially Anna's entire childhood, not one instance indicates that Anna would be a romantic. Her motivation is so specific, bizarre and contrived. I know some people are like "it...

While it hasn't been confirmed, various clues have pointed to Moana eventually joining the Disney Princess lineup. This process only involved 20+ users, which I think is a good thing, we'll save the BIG survey for after Moana's official coronation. That's why I didn't ask for comments or use fancy pics. Since the pool of users is so small, I wouldn't say these results are absolute and concrete. This is just a small preview of where Moana as well as the other princesses stand.

12. Merida-178 points

To the surprise of literally no one, Merida is dead last. Often criticized by DP fans and...

Tonight's rewatch: Both Frozen shorts
Last time watched: 2018

How much did I like this movie as a kid?
Like Frozen, these shorts came out in my 20s so I wasn't a kid but like I said before, I'm a kid at heart! I was hesitant to watch both shorts because I kept hearing a lot of Frozen haters call these shorts cash cows and said the holiday special was boring. I hardly heard anything positive about both shorts. I watched Frozen Fever about a week or two after it premiered and I loved it and I finally watched Olaf's Frozen Adventure around christmas time last year and, again, loved it!

This idea just kinda popped into my head. Basically as the title suggests, we take a scenario from a DP movie and analyze how the other princesses would behave or react in that situation. Today, our scenario is...

Entering the West Wing
Belle is considered by many to be one of the "good girls" of the DP lineup but she does have a bit of mischievous side and that shines through when her curiosity gets the better of her and she disobeys the Beast's direct orders to stay out of the castle's west wing.

Snow White-She'd gladly follow the Beast's rules and she wouldn't really question them either. While...

I don't really like Lindsay Ellis at all but I never thought I'd see the day where I agree with her on something and she'd have a video that perfectly sums up how I feel about Disney today.

I was watching her Beauty and the Beast 2017 review and she pretty much hit the nail on the head of all my issues. She was basically complaining about how years of whiny, nitpicky nobodies on the internet like you and me going on and on about "plothole" this and "problematic" that regarding Disney movies has pretty much resulted in the hot ass messes modern Disney films are today. How Beauty and the Beast...

Hello everyone! I'm Veronica (a.k.a. ApplesauceDoctr :D), and hey, it's been a little while since I've written an article. It feels good to get back into the spirit of writing. :D
So, what have I today? As you can see, I'll be analyzing the song "Reflection" from Disney's Mulan. I made a lyric video for it about a week ago and realized just how deep the song is! However, in this analysis, I'll also be taking a look at the extended version of the song. It shows a different side of Mulan that...well, you'll see soon enough.

Alright then! Let's take a listen to Reflection!

Accidental Discrimination?
Accidental Discrimination?
Okay, so the more I think about this, the more it starts to bother me. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't recall any Disney Princesses having green eyes. What's up with that?!

Snow White: brown
Cinderella: blue
Aurora: blue
Ariel: blue
Belle: brown
Jasmine: brown
Pocahontas: brown
Mulan: brown
I think Tiana's eyes are brown too.

Even the majority of Disney's other leading ladies don't have jade-coloured peepers. I'm pretty sure Tarzan's Jane has blue eyes, as does Giselle in Enchanted. So do Alice (in Wonderland) and Peter Pan's Wendy! I can't really tell what colour Megara's eyes are in Hercules (blue...

A great appreciation for all people in this spot who participated in my poll. Using the link (Myers Briggs Type Indicator) assessment, I attempted to classify Belle in one of sixteen different personality types.

BELLE IS...

1. Introverted link

Introverts often:
- Have quiet energy
- Listen more than talk
- Think quietly inside their heads
- Think, then act
- Feel comfortable being alone
- Prefer to work "behind-the-scenes"
- Have good powers of concentration
- Prefer to focus on one thing at a time
- Are self-contained and reserved



In the song "Belle," she preferred reading alone to mingling with...

Disney Heriones
Disney Heriones
The two most popular Disney women outside of the DP franchise. These two exotic beauties are definitely fan favorites when it comes to Animated Heriones, so why aren't they apart of the official line-up? The main reason people complain about Mulan being an official princess is that she gets recognized when these two ladies don't. Even though Megara is closer to royalty than her and Esmeralda is pretty much equal to Mulan. So basically I'm going to do the same thing I did with Merida. Look at the Pros and Cons of adding Esmeralda and Megara to the line-up. The only difference is, Merida still...
