It seems like Disney princesses are a hot-topic over the internet, or at least at my own blog, so here is another ten posts about them. Yes, they will be revealed one at a time, perhaps in intervals of one week. Since I have not watched all of Disney’s animated films (even from their canon list) I may not include some of your favorite Disney female characters, but any Disney princess exclusion is intentional. Some other things about this list:
1. Disney does not equal Pixar
2. Only 2D-animated characters allowed
3. No animals or otherwise non-human characters allowed
4. Must be of at least teenager age
5. Must star in at least one of Disney’s canon movies
6. Let’s pretend that all sequels did not happen
Cruella De Vil: Oh, sweet, simple Anita. I know, I know, this cottage of a house is your dream castle and poor Roger, he’s your bold and fearless gallant!
Yep, I bet you didn’t see this one coming. I’ve dug a little deeper into the Disney collection, and although Anita Radcliffe receives less screen time than 101 dalmatians, she is surprisingly well-developed. Anita Radcliffe is the only female protagonist on this list who gets married before the movie reaches towards its conclusion, which may make her seem too old for courtship but at the same time, we get to see how she is as a wife and long-term partner. Anita at first appears overly civilized, along with her dog, Perdita, but that facade soon fades away once she falls in water and shows she can laugh off an awkward moment. After Anita marries Roger Radcliffe, she is seen treating everyone nicely, even her old, pesky college friend Cruella De Vil. Anita is polite and mannered but still lively and even flirty towards Roger. Moreover, the fact she gives a poor musician like Roger a chance shows she doesn’t care about money, even though she looks like she was born of wealth, which is quite the attractive trait nowadays. As an added bonus, you’ll always know the perfect Christmas present: another dalmatian.
