Top 10 Best Theatrical Disney Princess Movies

MegaSoulhero
So Disney is doing this thing called "Dream Big Princess" and they're gonna be showing a few of the Disney princess films in AMC theaters. I'm already planning on seeing Mulan. Anyway, I decided to make this list because of that. And since some of these princess films got direct to dvd sequels, I want to make it clear that this list should only include the theatrical princess films.

The Top Ten

1 Beauty and the Beast (1991)

Beauty and the Beast is a movie that stars Emma Watson and Dan Stevens and features a bunch of terrible CGI, though not as bad as the CGI in IT (2017), and... Oh wait. I'm talking about the wrong version. Now let me talk about the actual good version. Beauty and the Beast is one of my favorite Disney films because it has such a fantastic story and message! It's what's on the inside that matters! Belle liked Beast for the kind of person he was underneath that creepy look of his. Paige O'Hara is a very great actress! She gave so much emotion! It made me really care about Belle even more! As for Emma Watson, she showed absolutely no emotion and made me wish the character got eaten by wolves! To sum it up, this movie is miles better than the remake! I still don't know why the decided to remake this movie! - MegaSoulhero

What's not to like about this movie? It's a perfect blend of everything good in a movie.

2 Tangled

Tangled! The story about a girl named Rapunzel who is held prisoner in a tower by a lady who wants to use Rapunzel's hair to stay young forever! This movie has a phenomenal story! And phenomenal characters as well! Rapunzel is one of my favorite Disney princesses! She can be a bit of a Mary Sue, but she still manages to be very well developed character! Flynn/Eugene is my favorite character simply because he is very hilarious! Maximus and Pascal are quite possibly two of the best animal sidekicks ever! Even the villain of the film, Mother Gothel, is great! She actually seems very intimidating! I love Mandy Moore's voice acting in this! She gives great emotion to the character of Rapunzel! The movie currently has a T.V. show on Disney Channel. I actually enjoy it! The best part of the show would probably have to be Eden Espinosa! Because she has such a hot voice and I loved her as Elphaba in Wicked! By the way, Eden Espinosa actually liked and retweeted one of my tweets last month! I'm ...more - MegaSoulhero

Pretty good, but overrated. - darthvadern

3 The Princess and the Frog

Anika Noni Rose can serenade me any day with that beautiful voice of hers. Princess and the Frog is a criminally underrated work of art! And it's the last Disney princess film to be animated in 2D animation! Not the last 2D animated Disney film, however! Winnie the Pooh was. But this was the second to last. I don't think anyone really hates this film, but not a lot of people seem to talk about it that much. It honestly deserves much more attention! Every single character is amazing! Every single song is amazing! There are some story problems, but the plot is very excellent! The thing that makes Tiana stand out from the other princesses is that she is a hard worker! That's what I like about her the most! This movie also has one of the best Disney villains ever! Dr. Facilier! This guy is awesome! And he even has such a great song! So brilliant! Also, there's a theory that Ray's girlfriend, Evangeline, is the blue fairy. I honestly don't find that hard to believe. In fact, I actually ...more - MegaSoulhero

Very underrated

4 Mulan

Even though I've seen this movie a million times, I'm gonna watch it in a movie theater when they start showing it in select theaters for a limited time! (Looks up date) Oh. Apparently that's the same weekend Kingsman: the Golden Circle comes out. Totally forgot about that movie. Well I guess it won't hurt to see two movies in one weekend. Mulan is my favorite Disney princess! She's pretty much everything that you would want in a princess! She's courageous, beautiful, tough, and she cares a lot about her family! The only thing is she's not technically a princess in the movie. But Disney decided to make her an official Disney princess because she committed a true act of heroism! So she deserves to be called a princess! As for the movie itself, I love it! The comedy works out pretty well, and I really enjoy the other characters too! Mushu is absolutely hilarious! Until they completely ruined him in the sequel! I'm still angry about that! - MegaSoulhero

5 Aladdin

Aladdin is such an amazing Disney princess! He is brave, he is tough, and he is heroic! What more could you want in a Disney princess? Wait. Aladdin isn't the princess in this film and Jasmine is? But the movie is called "Aladdin"! It focuses mostly on Aladdin! So you're telling me that even though Jasmine is an official Disney princess, she's not the main character of the movie? Why would they do that!? Doesn't matter though. This movie is amazing! The relationship between Aladdin and Jasmine feels very natural! The songs are great and the characters are great! The Whole New World scene has brilliant animation! It's my favorite scene in the movie! I already bought tickets to see the Aladdin Broadway musical at the Pantages theatre in February! Aladdin is one of my favorite Disney movies! Too bad it's getting a live action remake in 2019 with Will Smith as the Genie and that girl from Power Rangers as Jasmine. - MegaSoulhero

Do you realize Aladdin is a prince, not a PRINCESS. It's Jasmine who's a princess! - darthvadern

6 Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

This is not only the first Disney princess film to be released, it's the first feature length Disney movie to be released! That makes it a lot more special! The character of Snow White is very fascinating! I know not everyone is going to agree with that, but I really like her! And I like how she acts like a mother toward the dwarfs! The Evil Queen is one of my favorite Disney villains! Although, when she was using a potion to turn herself into an old hag, why couldn't she use one to make her look prettier than Snow White? I never understood that. I have a fun time every time I watch Snow White! The dwarfs are so funny! Grumpy is the one I relate to the most! Very great movie! - MegaSoulhero

This is such a masterpiece! I love it. However, norm of the north sucks. Bad casting, horrible animation & jokes & boring plot

I don't care if it's the first Disney movie! It is still bad! Snow White is too kind-hearted and dosen't think clearly! Why does she just go inside the abandoned cottage and cleans it and sleeps in it when she dosen't know WHO LIVES THERE! And why dosen't she just run away when she saw the hunter she waited there 'til she almost died! And why does she trust the queen when she turned into a witch, I would never trust an old woman that looks like a witch? This is why I like Cinderella more because she actully is strong unlike Snow White. - darthvadern

7 The Little Mermaid

I don't think there's such thing as a person who hates this film! It really is pretty good! Excellent animation, excellent songs, and excellent characters! There's pretty much nothing wrong with this film! Except for one thing. ARIEL! She is one of the worst Disney characters of all time! And the fact that she's the protagonist is just infuriating! Everything that happens in this film is because of her stupidity! People try to defend her by saying she just made a mistake. Uh yeah. No she didn't! She pretty much made a deal with an evil sea witch, and the fact that the T.V. series showed us that they've met before makes this even worse, and she signs a contract that she didn't read! And she did all this to be with a guy! That's not a mistake! That's just selfishness! No pun intended. But the actual good stuff in the movie is so good that I can't say this is a bad movie. Ariel may be the worst Disney princess, but this is definitely not the worst Disney princess movie. - MegaSoulhero

I love it should be 1

8 Cinderella (1950)

Cinderella is a pretty great film! This was actually the first Disney princess film I ever watched! Or the first one that I remember watching. Still, I remember it from my childhood! It still remains as one of the best Disney princess films for how magical it is and for how great the characters are! However, the movie isn't perfect. Sometimes I feel like the movie focuses mostly on the mice rather than the human characters. I also find it weird that the glass slippers were the only things that stayed considering that the spell wore off at midnight. Also, the prince apparently didn't care about Cindy enough to actually recognize what her face looks like! Instead, he had to find her by having the women in town try on a slipper! And what are the odds that no one else had the same size foot as her? But despite these flaws, I really enjoy the movie! Can't say the same for the 2015 remake though. - MegaSoulhero

Better than Snow White, it has a much better plot that Snow White! - darthvadern

9 Brave

I don't get the hate for this film. I think it's pretty good. It's weak by Pixar standards, but I still enjoy it. This is the first Disney princess film to be released by Pixar. Making Merida the only Disney princess to come from Pixar. There's this one hilarious joke in a scene from Wreck-it Ralph 2 that I won't give away here, but it cracked me up! I feel like Brave did an excellent job at capturing what a mother and daughter relationship looks like. It kind of reminds me of the relationship between my mother and my sister. The animation is very great! Merida is a very likeable character! I must admit though that the trailers were very misleading. They had us believe that it was about a girl who goes on adventures, but instead it was about the girl's mother being turned into a bear. I'm not saying that the story we did get is bad, but I probably would've preferred if it was more of an adventure movie. It's not Pixar great, but still pretty good. Definitely better than Cars 2 and ...more - MegaSoulhero

This is the BEST of all these movies! Put this at number #1! It's PIXAR! - darthvadern

10 Beauty and the Beast (2017)

The Contenders

11 Moana

Songs were terrible (as always), but I like Te Fiti aka Te Ka, because he is cool looking, I also like Darth Maui (pun intended). - darthvadern

Moana is the most recent Disney princess film to come out. And personally I think it's kind of overrated because out of all the Disney movies, this is by far the most cliché one. There are so many Disney clichés that it could be a drinking game! Also, Hei Hei is extremely annoying. He's just a chicken who doesn't help out with plot at all. But I must say, I kind of like this film! The animation may not be mind blowing, but it's still very well done! The two main characters are pretty likeable. I also like the songs! This was basically Dwayne Johnson's last good film. F8 of the Furious was garbage, Baywatch was garbage, the new Jumanji movie looks like garbage, and they're making a Jungle Cruise movie which I think will be garbage because I don't care for the ride! That movie will probably be filled with terrible puns! Moana's not perfect, but it's still a good film. - MegaSoulhero

12 Pocahontas
13 Frozen
14 Sleeping Beauty

Go higher

15 Enchanted

It's like a better version of Sleeping Beauty. - Tia-Harribel
