So… I got some rather stimulating comments last week about my list of the Disney Princesses ranked from worst to best. I got several comments on this front, but one of the main ones was some misconceptions of how I ranked the system. My ranking was based on the 11 Disney Princesses + Frozen because I felt Frozen was eventually going to become part of this group. Your opinion on whether or not it should be included on this list has been noted and as such… It will be included on this list. Life sucks, sometimes you don’t get what you want.
BUT, in order to understand that my last list was graded on a mix of the Disney Princess character, the film quality, AND the impact this character has had, I want to now create a new list to illustrate how a change in the dimensions of the list can alter its ranking. So with that being said, this time I will be ranking the 11 Disney Princess movies + Frozen in order of their film’s overall quality. With that being said, let’s start at number 12.

When it comes to movies and characters, you will be hard pressed to find a set of characters as iconic and trans-generational as The Disney Princesses. Starting from their first movies in 1937 with Snow White & The Seven Dwarfs and continuing down the line to the most recent addition, 2013’s Frozen, there are very few characters that represent the majesty and wonder that the Disney Corporation strives to be. The Disney Princesses are a collection of some of the timeless classic movies in American Cinematic History and I guarantee that each and every person who reads this list has at least one of these movies that is near and dear to your heart. So I decided that it was high time to take each of these 12 movies and list them from the Worst at number 12 all the way down to the Best Disney Princess movie out there.
I am going to stress HARD that this was not an easy list to make. There are so many factors that go into this list and so many ways that I could list them. SO FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO ARE READY TO JUDGE ME, here is how I am going to create this list. If I were to make a list solely on how good or bad the movie is or how these movies had an impact on the culture at large, this would be a VERY different list. So, what I decided was to limit my list to a certain criteria.
First off, I will only be including the eleven movies that are currently representing the Disney Princesses AND one movie that, I personally feel, is soon going to be included in this list; so much so that I feel that there inclusion is absolutely needed. So movies like The Hunchback of Notre Dame with Esmerelda, The Lion King with Nala, and Atlantis: The Lost Empire with Kida are out. So sorry, them’s the breaks kids. Take it up with Disney, not me. Also, I will be looking at each of these movies for their critical strengths, the impact that these movies have had on our culture, and of the character of the princess’s themselves. Ultimately, some movies may be ‘better’ than others, but due to the role of the princess in the movie, they may be brought down a peg or two. I will attempt to make my points clear with each group. Also, please keep in mind that just because a movie is low on my list does not mean that I think the movie is bad. On the contrary, even the lowest movie on my list would receive a 2.5/5 from me. So that tells you the kind of competition that we have. With that being said, let’s get started. Continue reading “Disney Princess Movies Ranked from Worst to Best”
So a film about the creation of one of the most beloved movies/musicals, Mary Poppins AND with one of the best actors of our generation Tom Hanks playing none other than Walt Disney… Oh this was going to go over well no matter what was put on the market. After checking out the movie this weekend, I do have to say that I was not in the least bit disappointed. Granted, I did think the movie could have done much more with the talent they had and the material at their disposal. But that should not take away from what is by all means a feel good charismatic movie. Continue reading “Tanner Reviews Saving Mr. Banks”
