First let me apologize for the pictures. My life is জ্যাম packed right now and I wanted to get this প্রবন্ধ published seeing as that we are already past জুঁই month. So I used tiffany88's moodboards instead.
Well, it's that time again, now that জুঁই মাস has ended to give আপনি my তালিকা of who I think Jasmine's পছন্দ princesses would be. Sorry that it's a little late. As always, I don't profess to be an expert on this. Also, I eventually just ended up posting this because I couldn't really come to a conclusion. 10. Cinderella
Yeah...I think we all saw this one coming. Though it's predictable, it's not without merit. জুঁই and সিন্ড্রেলা are possibly the two most dissimilar princesses. While সিন্ড্রেলা handles most issues with tact and foresight, জুঁই is immediately temperamentally responsive and impulsive. I think Cinderella's situation would totally frustrate জুঁই as well as Cinderella's propensity to trust blindly in faith and dreams; জুঁই doesn't believe in any of that and takes matters into her own hands. Also, Jasmine's tenacity in speaking her own mind would clash terribly with Cinderella's "keep your head down and just keep believing" mentality. I could see জুঁই yelling at her screen, imploring সিন্ড্রেলা to speak up for herself and tell the stepsisters off. 9. Aurora
Like Cinderella, Aurora also blindly goes where she is directed and we never see জুঁই have any sense of duty towards being a princess, and I think she would be very frustrated with Aurora accompanying the পরী to the দুর্গ after she discovers she is a princess; জুঁই would surely run away to prevent being condemned to that life. I think she may find Aurora a least a bit clever, we don't see Aurora's sass অথবা outspokenness at all, so I don't see any reason জুঁই would have any fondness for her. 8. Snow White
I think that জুঁই might be really bothered দ্বারা the stereotypes that Snow White perpetuates, but I think she would at least care আরো for Snow White's mouth and snark and how Snow White managed to care for herself out on her own, because that's something জুঁই wanted to do. 7. Rapunzel
The strong parallel here is being cooped up and never leaving one location; Rapunzel has never left the tower, and জুঁই has never been outside the palace walls. I think the disconnect begins with Rapunzel's insecure, optimistic, and endlessly adorable attitude. জুঁই is not easily approached অথবা impressed and while she can definitely be naïve, she doesn't allow the wool to be pulled over her eyes as often as Rapunzel does. I think Rapunzel also doesn't have the level of independence that জুঁই seeks. 6. Belle
জুঁই would be very fond of Belle's persistent rejection of Gaston, her refusal to back down from the Beast's outrageous demands, and how Belle longs for adventure, but they don't really have a lot in common. জুঁই would probably never change places with her father and if she did I think she would hold a lot of contempt for the Beast. I highly doubt জুঁই would ever be বন্ধু with the Beast, let alone fall for him, even if he started treating her with kindness. Frankly I don't think that would happen because I think the conversation between জুঁই and Beast would be MUCH আরো explosive and I think জুঁই would have tried to escape and she certainly wouldn't try to heal his wounds (though I don't think she would leave him to die in the snow). I don't think she would understand how Belle would ever প্রণয় her captor, even if he did change for the better, although I don't think she would necessarily blame Belle for it. I think she also may be part of the pack that gets irritated that Belle laments about her situation but doesn't do anything about it, considering that জুঁই was forcibly cooped up দ্বারা the law and the physical constraints of the palace, and Belle never had those kind of constrictions. I think জুঁই would definitely like Belle, but not as much as some other princesses. 5. Tiana
জুঁই would definitely admire Tiana's independence and how she's made her own name for herself and works hard towards obtaining her restaurant. জুঁই wants to be autonomous and have her own identity besides 'princess' and I think she would প্রণয় that Tiana creates her own dream and does everything on her own. She would especially প্রণয় that Tiana gets to be a princess in the end and have all those luxuries but it's আরো of a bonus along with her finally obtaining her restaurant. I think জুঁই would also প্রণয় that Tiana doesn't suffer fools and constantly spurns men and criticizes Naveen because I think জুঁই would see Naveen as deserving of it. I see Jas as a little আরো fun loving than Tiana so maybe she would wish that Tiana would take আরো risks and let loose once in awhile, but mostly she would প্রণয় her. 4. Pocahontas
I feel like জুঁই would have a girlcrush on Pocahontas. Pocahontas basically lives Jasmine's dream life. Pocahontas has indepdence and all the freedom in the world and people respect and value her opinions when she voices it. Pocahontas is also expected to marry Kocoum but clearly does not want to, although জুঁই doesn't seem to carry any burden of responsibility for her people the way জুঁই does for her tribe. So Pocahontas also is going through the pressures of being forced into marriage. The whole war/two sides plotline between Pocahontas and John I could see জুঁই finding somewhat romantic as well, and she may understand Pocahontas feeling so torn about John because if Pocahontas saves John, she risks disapproval from her people and possible outcasting. I think where the frustration with Pocahontas would come in would be Pocahontas' specific impulsivity. She rides waterfalls but when it comes to interpersonal confrontation she’s reticent. I think that would frustrate জুঁই who has no problem getting in faces. 3. Mulan
While they don't necessarily have a lot in common I think it wouldn't matter because what জুঁই has in verbal tenacity মুলান matches in her actions. They're almost opposites-- জুঁই talks the talk আরো than she walks the walk and মুলান is the reverse, still putting her head down and caring about honor and respect দ্বারা the end of the film. জুঁই would think মুলান is absolutely amazing in cutting her hair, freeing herself from her societal constraints and proving herself in the army. I think she would প্রণয় that মুলান knows how to fight, how she uses her intellect and strategy in war and how মুলান proves everybody wrong and saves China. She would see মুলান as some sort of amazing girl superhero. People may argue that Jas wouldn't like that মুলান was willing to marry to make her parents happy, but considering that জুঁই lives in the same culture, she may understand why মুলান was going to go through with it, and appreciate that it didn't happen anyway. জুঁই wants people to respect her and hear her out, and people definitely listen to Mulan. 2. Merida
There's not a lot I think জুঁই would dislike about Merida. Mer is defiant and absolutely, আরো than any other princess, REFUSES to let herself be wed to a complete stranger. While জুঁই is willing to marry if it's for love, Merida explicitly states she is not ready for marriage at all. I think জুঁই would feel so inspired দ্বারা Merida's "And I'll be shooting for my own hand!". Like Jasmine, Merida voices her opinion quite frequently but still doesn't really have a lot of agency and has to be rescued, but she does the best with what she's got. I don't think জুঁই would be particularly bothered দ্বারা Merida feeding her mother the cake, I think she would understand that the cake was not poisoned and wouldn't see it as cruel (Someone like Belle, however, would be totally disgusted দ্বারা that action, poisoned cake অথবা not.) জুঁই would প্রণয় Merida's tomboyish streak even if জুঁই doesn't have that herself, because জুঁই can also get physical as well. I also don't think জুঁই would be bothered that Merida isn't romantic. জুঁই only wants to marry for love, so why wouldn't she be fine that Merida isn't in প্রণয় yet? I truly think জুঁই would find Merida inspiring. 1. Ariel
What's to say here except that জুঁই would প্রণয় everything about Ariel. I think the line "bright young women, sick of swimmin, ready to stand" would really resonate with Jasmine. Ariel is also a princess who has a lot of pressure put on her to live up to expectations that longs to explore. She stands up for herself but also
actually follows through in trying to achieve her independence (whereas মুলান showed everything through action rather than verbally, Ariel did both.) জুঁই would understand the oppression Ariel feels as well as Ariel loving someone considered "forbidden" and having to change her father's mind. She would প্রণয় Ariel's risk taking nature, her excitability when she finally ends up in the human world and both of them have this teenage rebellious streak that may not be well thought out but shows their determination. She would প্রণয় how Ariel shows that just because আপনি have everything, it doesn't necessarily make আপনি happy. I wonder if she would be annoyed দ্বারা Ariel's naivety when it comes to Ursula but জুঁই also didn't pick up on Jafar hypnotizing her father, so I don't know. Like I ব্যক্ত before, জুঁই wants her voice to be heard, and Ariel makes people listen to what she wants দ্বারা ironically giving up her voice.
