30 facts you most likely never knew…

Hi Pixies!

This is my first time writing on Marigold’s awesome blog 🙂

I found some really interesting facts about Disney Princesses that not even I knew!

1. Anna (Frozen) is the first Disney princess to have a duet with a villain.

2. Belle is the only Disney princess with hazel eyes.

3. Even though we know him as Prince Charming, we never actually FIND OUT the real name of the Prince character in Cinderella.

4. The queen in Sleeping Beauty is also never actually given a name. Some people say Leah, but others say Athena.

5. Pocahontas is the only Disney princess with a tattoo.

6. Ariel is the daughter of Triton, who is the son of Poseidon. Poseidon is the brother of Zeus, who is father to Hercules. That would mean Ariel and Hercules are related.

7. Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End is estimated to be the most expensive film ever made, with Tangled(!) coming in at number two.

8. Elsa was supposed to be the villain in Frozen, but the producers loved “Let It Go” so much as an empowering anthem that they changed her story line.

14. During the end fight in Beauty and the Beast, Gaston’s original line was “Time to die!” Disney decided this line was too dark for an animated film, so it was changed to “Belle is mine!” But you can still see Gaston’s lips mouth the original line in the film.

15 . Alicia Keys auditioned three times for the role of Tiana in The Princess and the Frog. Beyoncé reportedly refused to audition and expected to just be offered the part.

      Hi Minerva,
      Thank You 😀
      I also agree, the Cinderella Dress Transformation is beautiful 🙂
      It reminds me of Elsa when she also transforms her dress 😉

  6. Great Job, Raindrop!
    I loved the fact about the debate on Frozen- would Olaf’s melting have saved Anna? Perhaps.

      Hi Sarah,
      Thank You 🙂
      That fact also got me thinking ! Anna really did love Olaf 😀
      But I am still happy about the exciting ending to Frozen 😉

      • You are welcome, Raindrop. 🙂
        Hmm…but I doubt if Olaf’s ‘love’ would have saved Anna. It was more of a friendship. I think true love here means familial love, like the one Elsa and Anna had for each other?

          🙂
          True, Olaf has more of a friendship with Anna, rather than love. I agree with you that it was the love that Anna had for Elsa, which made her search and try to convince her sister to return, even though she knew the risks.
          As for Elsa, after she hurt Anna when they were young, Elsa’s love for Anna made her keep her distance to protect Anna.
          I think Disney did a great job for the story-line and production of Frozen. I’d like to see if there is a number two! That would be really interesting 😀

          I would like to ask a question to everyone : Who thought Hans was good at the start? It really came by surprise when I found out he was a villain!
          Disney sure is fond of surprises 😉
