Best Disney Animated Movies With Female Lead Characters


The Top TenXW

1Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

Snow White may be a product of her time, confined to domestic duties rather than fighting back against the Queen, but she also makes the most of surviving out in the world on her own and actively earns her keep in taking refuge with the Seven Dwarves, forming a stronger, more maternal bond with them than the brief romantic connection she had with the prince. On the day she's tricked into eating the poison apple, she was trying to win one of them over, and judging by his reaction to her kissing him on the head, she succeeded.

Also, the art is breathtaking, and the animation is just so beautiful to look at.

2The Little Mermaid

Ariel had the mot beautiful voice and the greatest sense of adventure. Loved her and loved this classic.

Ariel is one of the greatest Disney leads in my opinion.

Probably my favorite Disney movie. Rapunzel is a strong female lead. There's a guy who helps her, but she makes him do it. She even saves him, more than once. The dialogue is funny, the songs amusing (and not annoying), and the horse is hilarious.

Yep tangled is best on this position, I mean exactly it has action, drama, romance, thill and etc. So the couple suits perfect. But it deserves 2nd because it was not that happy ending, I mean at last he cut her hair and that to so much short. So I think it got 2nd

Elsa is so amazing so why she is on 7 number? she deserve the 1 position

What? Why so low!?

Frozen has an outstanding female lead, plot and pretty much everything.
Elsa alone makes Frozen different from any other Disney female lead. I'm sick and tired of Mary Sues

I May Hate This Frozen Related Things Because It's So Overrated
But The Movie Itself Is Great

Unlike 99% of the movies on this list (other than tangled, Alice in wonderland and frozen being the 1%), Mulan is a movie that showcases a girl getting along without the help of a man. It was one of Disney's first feminist movies.

When someone says you fight like a girl, remember this movie

Wait, Ping was a female the entire time!?

9Alice In Wonderland

Alice is a great female character. She can be bland at times, but she's also smart, witty and tenacious. She actually does have a spine.

10Sleeping Beauty

The Contenders

11The Rescuers

This movie shows us that not only prince or some hero can save the day but even a princess can do it on her own

This is the unique princess story. I like it!

As amazing as Meg is, she isn't the lead character. Hercules is.
