Snow White ___________________________

In the beginning of the Grimm's Tale Schneewittchen, Snow White's mother pricks her finger with a sewing needle and three drops of her blood fall onto the snow which lay on the ebony windowsill. Oddly enough, this made her long for a daughter of a similar color scheme. While this reflects the arc of the story: (white)innocence, (red)maturity & love, and (black)death, her name particularly represents a season when the world metaphorically sleeps only to be inevitably awakened with the coming of spring.





_______________________________ Cinderella

Omitted from the ディズニー version of the fairytale, シンデレラ was actually the cruel nickname 与えられた to her によって her stepsisters for sitting at the dying cinders of the 火災, 火 after her long days work. Cinderella's real name is never mentioned. Cinders have a number of symbolic meanings from being merely a 情報源 of warmth and a hidden 火災, 火 to represent rebirth in the story of the Firebird または Phoenix. In myth, the creature would die in the fiery blaze of its nest only to rise again reborn from the ashes signifying a rise to glory from the lowest of places.





Aurora ________________________________

Latin for "light" または "dawn", Aurora is her royal name 与えられた によって her parents. It may be stated in the film that this was "because she filled their lives with sunshine" but its also fitting for this princess since dawn is the time when the sleeping world awakes. It's no accident that she falls asleep at dusk and awakes upon sunrise. Incidentally one may recall her "hair of sunshine gold" but her "lips that shame the red red rose" are もっと見る linked to her 秒 name.



Briar Rose ________________________________

Briar Rose, a pseudonymn 与えられた によって her fairy godmothers also has poetic meaning. The first word BRIAR, a mass of thorny plants obviously makes sense with the story's motif but a rose also has numerous conotations. バラ have represented love, beauty, virtue, femininity, and virginity hence why it is also a symbol of the Virgin Mary. But a briar rose is a thing of beauty surrounded によって harsh thorny bramble -- much like Aurora herself in the 城 surrounded によって the forest of thorns.





__________________________________ Ariel

Ariel's name probably has the most mysterious of origins but there are two possible sources that equally make sense. Song writers Alan Menken and Howard Ashman (both of Jewish heritage) had a surprising amount of creative input in the story having named several of Ariel's sisters. This could leave reason to suspect they may have also suggested the name Ariel, Hebrew for "Lion of God". Lions are well known symbols of strength and courage.




The 秒 possibility which actually ties into the first is the connection to the word 'ARIA'. Hebrew for "lioness". However in Italian it means "air" and is a musical term for a solo vocal piece with a light instrumental accompaniment. This probably makes the most sense considering music, and not lions, is the most obvious if not significant factor in Ariel's story.









Belle ________________________________

The most straight フォワード, 前進, 楽しみにして of names, Belle is literally French for "beauty". Granted this makes sense since Belle's character is meant be physically attractive. However beauty is not just restricted to our visual sense but can encompass all the senses and even that of our spirit. Intended to contrast the physical ugliness of the beast, Belle's purpose in the story is ultimately to transform the beast's soul to match the beauty of her own. She is everything the beast must aspire to be.





________________________________ Jasmine

Most people assume ジャスミン is merely a reference to the ジャスミン 花 and to a certain degree it is. ジャスミン is actually indigenous to the Middle East. Known as "yasmine" to the natives, the 花 is so pleasantly fragrant that the name translates to "gift from God" in Arabic. In the western world it can represent sensuality, elegance, and modesty -- a particular virtue アラジン または Ali Ababwa must obtain to win the ハート, 心 of the princess.




Pocahontas _________________________

Pocahontas is unique being that she is the only ディズニー Princess whom we know actually existed. Historically she is known によって three separate names. Powhattan for "little mischief", Pocahontas was actually a nickname 与えられた to her because of her precocious and playful nature. Her real name was Matoaka または "bright stream between the hills". This can easily be linked to her affinity for rivers in the film. Her third name Rebecca, which she adopted after being baptized, is Hebrew for "to bind または bring together" and this is exactly what she did for her people and the Jamestown settlers.





___________________________________ Mulan

The story of ムーラン is not a fairytale but a legend potentially based on real events of a woman named Hua Mulan which literally translates to "flower wood orchid", または the magnolia. Magnolias are a symbol of perseverance and nobility. The film makes reference to this in the scene when ムーラン and her father sit beneath the モクレン, マグノリア tree. Her father subtly parallels his daughter to a late モクレン, マグノリア [mulan] blossom and how it will one 日 be the most beautiful of all.




Tiana ___________________________________

Potentially derived from the Greek word 'TIANI' meaning "princess", being a 人気 name among African-Americans it may be fitting that the first black ディズニー Princess was named Tiana. However this was not her first name choice. Originally her name was Maddy but was deemed too racially insensitive. This is odd since Maddy is short for Madeline derived from Magdeline. Mary Magdeline was a friend of ジーザス and only disciple strong enough to witness his crucifixion and the first to witness his resurrection -- a woman who went on a long journey and acheived a great spiritual transformation.


_______________________________ Rapunzel

Also known as "rampion" または "bellflower", rapunzel is an edible plant. In the Grimm's Tale, it was specifically this plant that a poor man ストール, 盗んだ from a witch's garden to feed his pregnant wife. As punishment, the witch took the poor couple's daughter and raised her away in a tower without any doors または stairs. This plant is not only beautiful but is also noted for its ability to grow in very inhospitable soils. Rapunzel is very much like her namesake plant in that she too flourishes in beauty, kindness and curiosity despite being locked away in a cruel world. (she will also be the first ディズニー Princess who's main color is purple.)

I finally worked out how to do this. My mistake was mixing too many languages together which made it impossible to translate it back into full English. That's why Snow White's paragraph came back with only one sentence. I've done a remake of it with funny results including シンデレラ and Aurora's stories.

Snow White's Background

11. Charlotte's wedding dress
This dress is very....interesting. Like there's some parts of it that's pretty but it's kinda over the 上, ページのトップへ and so so so pink Obviously this is a dress for シャルロット, シャーロット because almost every formal dress we see her wear is ピンク and over the 上, ページのトップへ because that's her style. I'm always for people wearing what they want, whether it be cosplay (don't judge me, I'm a geek and proud :P ) または just wearing a different colored dress. This, however, doesn't exactly scream "wedding dress" to me. It actually reminds me of one of those cakes that has the doll in the middle of it....

This is my guess:
Aurora:I always thought she's tall,but she can be medium height either. I would say 1.70 m,but she can be under that too.
Pocahontas:She's very tall,almost as tall as John Smith and he was tall.She has really long legs too.I guess 180-182 m.
Cinderella: I think she's average height.She's shorter than Aurora. Anything from 165-169 m.She can look tall sometimes.
Esmeralda:She's not a ディズニー Princess,but I read somewhere that she's the tallest of all ディズニー Princesses.
My guess is anything from 180 to 184 m.Don't know if she and Pocahontas would be same heght.
Elsa:I read that she...

Voted over a 月 ago, the results are in. Keep 読書 to find out what holiday each princess represents. I had fun do this and was thinking it would be fun to redo this with princes, and maybe villains. コメント down below and let me know what あなた think about that idea.




Mother’s 日 is an easy choice for Snow White as she is so motherly. She takes care of the dwarfs. She cooks. She cleans. I know that sounds cliché. But beyond those traits, she cares about people the way a mother would. Unconditionally. But she still has her limits much like a mother would. She bonds with her dwarf...

It's no secret that I absolutely DESPISE the movie The Little Mermaid 3: Ariel's Beginning. It's absolutely insulting, has terrible continuity, the original characters (except for Ariel) are completely different characters, Triton is a one-dimensional and exaggerated version of his former self, the story about 音楽 being banned is stupid, the villain is lame with an equally lame song, it's full of plot holes, the new characters are unnecessary and unmemorable, Athena died in a dumb way (Leave the 音楽 box あなた idiot), and it puts もっと見る effort into gorgeous アニメーション and good songs (Except for...
