DISNEY PRINCESSES:
THE DEFINITIVE LIST
by Whatsits Galore

No Princess Left Behind

You know Disney has a long-standing princess tradition dating from the very first animated feature and continuing to the present day. This includes an official princess list, which currently stands at 11, with two more scheduled to be inducted in the near future. Wait...inducted? Princesses are born (daughter of a king, chief, or jeddak), or made (wife of a prince), not elected. Unless you're counting the Star Wars universe, which is beyond the parameters of this site.

It seems that Disney allows such things as popularity and ethnicity to influence their judgement concerning princesses, factors that have nothing to do with royalty. A princess is a princess, with or without a formal ceremony to induct her into the club. To set the record straight, Whatsits Galore has compiled a truly complete list of Disney princesses, some well-known, some obscure, but each one deserving of the title and of a place in Disney history.

This list includes Disney and Pixar characters, but not Star Wars (no Princess Leia), Marvel (no Princess Python or Teela), or the Muppets (no Princess Azalea...look it up). If you want a Star Wars princess page, you'll have to create it yourself.
