The next Disney princess

4 02 2015

Dear Disney,

I know you’ve come a long way since the traditional, damsel in distress, can’t do anything without a prince, Disney princess. In the last few years we’ve seen the first black Disney princess, as well as one who was saved by a sister instead of a prince, but I think there are so many more areas to cover to help the rest of us feel included.

When will we see a Disney princess who:

  • wears glasses
  • can’t control her eyebrows
  • has unruly hair
  • has acne
  • has gappy or crooked teeth
  • is a plus size
  • sniffs occasionally, just because it’s cold out
  • bites her nails

These are things that we can’t necessarily help about ourselves, and it’d just make the princesses far more relateable.

Yes I may be in my mid-20s but I think you’ll find that a lot of us this age grew up on Disney and are still pretty big fans and loyal customers of the brand!

Yours,
Ineke

If you’re a fan of things like buzzfeed, and are gifted in the art of photoshop, feel free to try and produce images of some of these princesses!
