Hello all, and welcome to Fanpop's পছন্দ ডিজনি Princesses 2019! Before we begin, I have to give a huge thank আপনি to everyone who দাখিল হয়েছে their lists, comments, and headers for the article. This absolutely would not be possible without all of you.
If you're a little late to the party, here's how things worked this year: rather than asking people to জমা করুন their পছন্দ DP lists, I instead asked everyone to rank each of the princesses on a scale of 1-20, 20 being love, 10 being neutral অথবা mixed feelings, and 1 being hate. I did it this way because I thought it would give a আরো nuanced picture of how we feel about the princesses.
Results have been determined দ্বারা the median (middle-most) score for each DP, with the mode (most common) score as a tiebreaker, and the mean (average) score as a secondary tiebreaker if necessary. If there was আরো than one mode for a DP, I used the highest mode since this is a তালিকা of পছন্দ after all. :) As for formatting the article, I liked the way princesslullaby did it last time with one positive and one negative মতামত for each princess in order to প্রদর্শনী multiple perspectives, so that's what I did this time as well. I did my best to diversify the মতামত - thank আপনি to everyone who took the time to write them.
And so... the results: 12. Merida Median: 8 Mode: 9 Mean: 7.56
Merida makes me smile, it's as simple as that. She's crazy and wild, but also learns from her mistakes and owns up to them. It's nice that we have a princess who's not interested in marriage. I think she's severely underappreciated, and I really adore her. ~MaidofOrleans
She harmed her mother without thinking things through, and then tried to blame her mother for everything. Merida didn't think through her plans before making a deal with a witch, just like Ariel, but she shows no remorse for the vast majority of the movie, and at the end I still don't fully believe that she was sorry. I think she would do it all again if her mother didn't change her point of view of the arranged marriage. ~sunnyfields 11. Moana Median: 13 Mode: 15 Mean: 12.33
A lot of people think she's boring and unoriginal, but I rather like Moana. Even though she has many similar traits as the other princesses, it's her journey, a hero's journey, that's unique. Her movie is also really good, and how much I like the movie determines how much I like the princess. She's relatable and I'm a sucker for the ocean. All hail to the sailing (way-finding) princess (no pun intended). ~disnerdtobe
If Rapunzel was written to be "flawless" but wasn't necessarily written to be a "role model", and Tiana was written to be a "role model" but wasn't really meant to be "flawless", Moana is a combination of both: just this perfectly sculpted ideal symbol, resulting in an obnoxious cookie-cutter and quite frankly boring character. All those words we প্রণয় to use on পূর্ববর্তি princesses like "idealized", "Mary-Sue", "generic", "unoriginal", etc.… I feel like those terms can all be applied tenfold to Moana. Honestly, other princesses probably have less likeable qualities and have committed less favorable actions that warrant a negative reaction, but that's the thing, at least it's a reaction! Moana makes me feel nothing. ~JNTA1234 10. Snow White Median: 14.5 Mode: 12 Mean: 14.72
She is optimistic and kind, despite being a little bossy at times. I like how she was considerate to apologize to the জন্তু জানোয়ার for scaring them, and she was kind enough to offer a drink to the evil কুইন in disguise. She stayed positive and optimistic that everything would work out in the end and that she would get her happily ever after, which is admirable. ~sunnyfields
She is sweet, but I don’t like how bossy she can be. She is not the most interesting princess for me. ~magicworld_88 9. Pocahontas Median: 15 Mode: 15 Mean: 14.06
I প্রণয় her passionate and loving nature (which is especially during রঙ of the Wind, my পছন্দ DP song), I প্রণয় how she is playful and childish but at the same time wise and philosophical, and I admire her selflessness. ~Adelital
The voice work on Pocahontas (speaking voice, that is) is so drab that I find her character really dull. Very difficult to get invested in her. ~ApplesauceDoctr 8. Aurora Median: 15 Mode: 15 Mean: 14.50
I প্রণয় her symbolism in Sleeping Beauty. She's like a wood sprite and has that fairytale elegance. All hail to the nap queen. ~disnerdtobe
I like her appearance and গান গাওয়া voice, but since she doesn’t have a lot of screen time, she doesn’t have too much of a personality except just being a dreamer and dreaming about meeting someone. ~BB2010 7. Tiana Median: 15 Mode: 19 Mean: 13.61
Unique personality. I admire her work ethic and since I am a big eater, I also প্রণয় that she is such a great cook. ~Adelital
I don't like Tiana's movie, ergo I don't like her. I don't like how the movie portrays Tiana as morally superior to everyone else… I don't like how she's so focused on the future and rarely lives in the present. Years of self-deprivation and focusing solely on hard work can make a person pessimistic. ~disnerdtobe 6. Belle Median: 16 Mode: 19 Mean: 14.78
She's so wonderful. I প্রণয় her imagination, her thirst for adventure, her refusal to be content with a quiet life, not to mention her ability to see beneath the surface. She's so brave, and I just adore her. ~MaidofOrleans
…I've not liked Belle since I was around 8 years old, and I am getting into my late 30s as we speak. …Belle annoys me with her constant pretentiousness, and I've never liked her story arc for its departure from having siblings, a আরো involved/less stupid father, and the general less mysterious/non-magical quality of falling in প্রণয় with someone who is volatile (which is what happened in the original tale, and why it's not among my পছন্দ at all). ~wavesurf 5. Jasmine Median: 16.5 Mode: 17 Mean: 15.56
With a fiery personality and a quick wit, she's a thrill to watch and the only reason she doesn't get one আরো point is that it's not her story. ~JNTA1234
I actually think that জুঁই in the TV প্রদর্শনী is a better character than the version in the movie, where she is আরো a side-character. It's Aladdin's story after all. But I like the feisty but also responsible version of her in the TV show. ~Swanpride 4. Cinderella Median: 17 Mode: 18 Mean: 16.28
সিন্ড্রেলা has so much inner strength. No matter how much her "family" kept tearing her down, she never stopped dreaming, and whenever she saw a chance to stand up to her family, she did. That makes her one of my favs. ~Swanpride
Perfectly pleasant, but some of the others are আরো interesting to me. ~ApplesauceDoctr 3. Rapunzel Median: 17 Mode: 20 Mean: 14.89
I just love, love, প্রণয় Rapunzel! She is smart, she is excitable, but she is also full of insecurities which she overcomes in her movie. Aside from Mulan, she is the most fleshed out of all the ডিজনি Princesses imho. ~Swanpride
I have mixed feelings about Rapunzel, but I think I like her overall, which is why she's sitting at an 11 rather than a 10. I feel like ট্যাঙ্গেল্ড is trying really hard to get me to like her, just shoving her in my face and screaming about how cute and relatable she is, and that results in me disbelieving her as a character as well as seriously bothering me. However, I like that she's artistic and curious about the world. ~MaidofOrleans 2. Ariel Median: 17 Mode: 20 Mean: 16.78
Her গান গাওয়া voice is my পছন্দ in the ডিজনি Princess franchise, and I প্রণয় her curious and adventurous personality. Even without having a voice for some of the movie, it doesn’t stop her from being this adorable, curious, energetic girl who wants to see আরো of the surface world and marry Eric. ~BB2010
Neither particularly admirable অথবা relatable, overrated in the looks department, but I'll give her points for starting new trend and serving as inspiration for many of the 90s animated heroines. ~Adelital 1. Mulan Median: 18 Mode: 20 Mean: 17.83
She uses her brains to overcome obstacles and to win the war rather than just fighting, and even when she’s kicked out of the army she doesn’t hesitate to run to them to tell them the Huns were still alive. ~BB2010
An inspiring, amazing, relatable character...who also kicks butt. ~JNTA1234
What is NOT to প্রণয় about Mulan? But my পছন্দ thing about her is that she eventually stops trying to be a typical woman অথবা a typical man and instead just starts being herself, using her smarts to her advantage. She is great. ~Swanpride
মুলান is memorable and her interactions with the other characters are entertaining. ~disnerdtobe
Relatable, the most tragic DP from the saddest DP movie. I প্রণয় how humble and sweet she is (and it's great that despite being a warrior and being created in late 90s, in her attitude she is আরো similar to Pocahontas and Belle than she is to জুঁই and Meg), and admire how caring and protective she is of people outside of her family. Her insecurity and self-hatred, however, make her a bit annoying at times. ~Adelital
I like how loyal, brave, and family oriented she is. I just don't relate to her bravery, which sets her down a little in my পছন্দ list. ~sunnyfields
প্রণয় her. She seems to be reserved, sweet, not very confident, and this is refreshing for a female character that is supposed to go to war. ~magicworld_88
Mulan's a badass. She's so brave, and I প্রণয় her devotion to her family. Her transformation is one of the best of all the DPs. ~MaidofOrleans
মুলান feels very human to me. Trying to do what's right, wanting to be someone who will make her family proud, and not sure how to do that, disappointed in herself, but musters the courage to do what no one else in her time would... DANG. She's great. ~ApplesauceDoctr
