Disney princesses hold a special place in our American mythos. For better or worse, it's the feminine archetype that many little girls (and some boys, and more than a few grown adults) hold up as their ideal. These characters are so thoroughly ingrained in our culture that they've become the go-to subject of almost daily Internet articles/lists on Buzzfeed. Seriously, go check. There's like a bazillion of them. And here's one more!
We certainly understand the fascination; the life of a princess seems an enviable one. Prancing hither and thither, making new friends with the native wildlife, singing along to the convenient incidental music and having their heads spontaneously combust. Wait, what was that last one?
