“I absolutely despise that Mulan is considered an Official Disney Princess! She is not of royal blood nor did she marry a prince.”
My feelings are the exact opposite.
I love that Mulan is a princess, and wish that Disney would expand the franchise to include more non-princesses.
Being a part of the Princess franchise gives your movie and characters a longevity they might not otherwise have, because the Disney Princess Franchise is one of the most heavily marketed and merchandised things for little girls out there.
Because of that, I wish it had a greater diversity of stories to choose from. I wish it included Lilo and Wendy and Alice.
I think it’d be better if little girls were given more options as to what dolls they could love and what their heroes are allowed to be.
But that’s my take.
