Best Disney Animated Movies With Female Lead Characters

The Top Ten

1 Tangled Tangled Product Image

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

How have I not noticed that Flynn has a frying pan in his hand on the cover? What is wrong with me?

Best movie ever! Great songs, amazing characters. Is there anything better than this?

2 Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs Product Image

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.

I'm crazy 'bout it. I've watched it thousands times.

3 The Little Mermaid The Little Mermaid Product Image

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

My little sis loves this movie

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


4 Frozen Frozen Product Image

About a wicked queen who does not care if her OWN SUBJECTS freeze to death. She even sings about the cold not bothering HER anyway. It's always about her. Anna is so sweet, loyal, forgiving, loving, and amazing, she gives up her life for this evil woman who happens to be her sister(but does not act like it). Elsa deserved to be stabbed to death. There! I said it.

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

Number 2 she should be

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

5 Cinderella Cinderella Product Image

I grew up loving this movie. I love Cinderella. She's my favorite.

Cinderella is amazing!


6 Mulan Mulan Product Image

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!?

Mulan is the best!

7 Beauty and the Beast Beauty and the Beast Product Image

It is actually pronounced Belle but anyways at least put this at number 2

Queen of all Disney movies

Bell should be number 1!

8 Alice In Wonderland Alice In Wonderland Product Image

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.

Curiouser and curiouser

9 Sleeping Beauty Sleeping Beauty Product Image

I love this movie 10 best animated movie it's so good

So dreamy. So romantic. So exciting. So funny.

10 The Aristocats The Aristocats Product Image

Dutches is my favorite character from The Aristocats movie. She's a very BEAUTIFUL cat! 🐈🐱😍

The Contenders

11 Moana Moana Product Image

Moana is brave, caring, smart, strong, pretty much anything you'd want in a character. I don't know why she's so low.

Not my favorite but voting because I feel this movie is very underrated - Phillip873

The best for me.

Easily the best film on here see it and upvote it.

12 Zootopia

Judy is the best, she is brave and so beautiful too

Emotional but strong, strict still caring... Judy hopes

Best Disney movie ever created since Hunchback!

This should be at #1 already!

13 Lady and the Tramp Lady and the Tramp Product Image
14 The Rescuers The Rescuers Product Image
15 Brave Brave Product Image

This is the unique princess story. I like it!
