Best Disney Animated Movies With Female Lead Characters


The Top Ten

1 Snow 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.

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

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

2 Tangled

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.

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

Best Movie Ever. I think it deserves the spot at number 1. Great movie, amazing songs.

I love this movie!

3 The Little Mermaid

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

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

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

Cinderella is amazing!


6 Mulan

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

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 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

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

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

10 Zootopia

Best Disney movie ever created since Hunchback!

This should be at #1 already!


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

The Contenders

11 The Rescuers
12 The Aristocats

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

13 Brave

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!

Very Underrated


14 The Princess and the Frog
15 Pocahontas
16 Moana

The best for me.

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

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

17 Finding Dory
18 Lady and the Tramp
19 Lilo & Stitch
20 Inside Out

Joy is such a strong and interesting character, and Sadness is, too!

21 Hercules

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

Meg is not the lead! Idiots!

Wait... Hercules was a female the whole time?
Wow... That changes the movie a lot...

22 The Lion King II: Simba's Pride
