* TomboyPrincess: The Renaissance Princesses (curious and somewhat rebellious Ariel, intelligent and outspokenly feminist Belle, and fiercely independent Jasmine), particularly in comparison to the Classic Princesses (Snow White, Cinderella, and Aurora).

to:

* TomboyPrincess: TomboyPrincess:
** ''Disney/TheBlackCauldron'': Princess Eilowny. Although heavily watered down from her original characterization, which fits this more.
** Ariel from ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid''. Very feisty, active and adventurous, and can hold her own against a shark—the start of a Renaissance-era tradition involving the ''Disney Princesses''. Her daughter Melody in the sequel fits as well.
** ''Disney/TheLionKing'': Nala (although she's never called a princess), as seen when she play-wrestles with Simba on her way to an elephant graveyard with him. That far into the movie, they're just friends (and they don't take seriously the idea that they'd grow up to be more than friends) and you could almost forget they're opposite genders if not for the voices. ''The Lion King'' has its protagonist and princess more similar to each other than most Disney movies do. Her [[RebelliousPrincess rebellious]], boisterous young daughter Kiara is another example, especially as Nala matures and becomes more regal.
** ''Disney/{{Pocahontas}}'' has the titular character, who is athletic, scales mountains, climbs trees, jumps off cliffs, and steers her canoe into turbulent waters. After Merida, she's probably one of the most tomboyish Princesses.
**
The Renaissance Princesses (curious eponymous character of ''Disney/{{Mulan}}'' is not a princess, but she is part of the official [[Franchise/DisneyPrincess Disney Princess lineup]], and somewhat rebellious Ariel, intelligent and outspokenly feminist Belle, and fiercely independent Jasmine), particularly in comparison she's tomboyish to the Classic Princesses (Snow White, Cinderella, extent of [[SweetPollyOliver pretending to be a man to join the army]].
** ''Disney/AtlantisTheLostEmpire'': Princess Kida, which seems to be part
and Aurora).parcel of her being TheChiefsDaughter, right up to the point where they actually show her climbing up a large rock structure while wearing a long, flowing dress at the end of the film!
** Princess Merida from the Creator/{{Pixar}} film ''WesternAnimation/{{Brave}}''. This is the root of the conflict with her mother; she hates the courtly education Elinor gives her and doesn't want to marry. She just wants to ride horses and practice archery.
** [[spoiler:Vanellope von Schweetz]] from ''Disney/WreckItRalph'', a spunky and tomboyish little kart racer, [[spoiler:is revealed to be a princess at the end of the movie, although she gives up that title to become a President instead.]]

* SlidingScaleOfVisualsVersusDialogue: The older films tend to put more emphasis on visual storytelling than dialogue (''Bambi'' is particularly notable for having less than 1,000 words of spoken dialogue) while the newer films tend to strike a balance of visuals and dialogue.

Added DiffLines:

* SlidingScaleOfAnthropomorphism: The older films tend to have [[FunnyAnimal funny animals]] and realistic animals, and films like ''Zootopia'' have PettingZooPeople.
* SlidingScaleOfEndings: The films generally end with happy endings, and occasionally feature the odd BittersweetEnding.
* SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism: The films uniformly land on the idealistic end of the scale.
* SlidingScaleOfPlotVersusCharacters: The films generally fall onto the "More Plot Than Characters" end of the scale.


Added DiffLines:

* SlidingScaleOfSillinessVersusSeriousness: It depends on the film, but the films generally tend to rollercoaster back and forth between having comedic and serious elements.
* SlidingScaleOfVisualsVersusDialogue: The older films tend to put more emphasis on visual storytelling than dialogue (''Bambi'' is particularly notable for having less than 1,000 words of spoken dialogue) while the newer films tend to strike a balance of visuals and dialogue.

Added DiffLines:

* SlidingScaleOfAnimalCast: It varies.
** A big chunk of the canon falls on the Level 7 end of the scale, with many of the films having human protagonists with an animal NonHumanSidekick or two.
*** ''Cinderella'' has Gus and Jacques the mice and Lucifer the cat and in its supporting cast.
*** ''Sleeping Beauty'' has Diablo the raven as the sidekick of Maleficent, the humanoid wicked fairy.
*** ''The Little Mermaid'' stars humans and humanoid merfolk, but also has Flounder the fish, Sebastian the crab, Scuttle the gull and Max the dog, as well as Flotsam and Jetsam the eels.
*** ''Aladdin'' has Abu the monkey, Raja the tiger and Iago the parrot.
*** ''Pocahontas'' has Percy the pug, Meeko the raccoon and Flit the hummingbird.
*** ''The Hunchback of Notre Dame'' has Djali, Esmeralda's pet goat.
*** ''Mulan'' has Cri-Kee the cricket and Khan the horse as Mulan's sidekicks, and Hayabusa the falcon as Shan Yu's sidekick.
*** ''Tangled'' has Maximus the horse and Pascal the chameleon.
*** ''Frozen'' has Sven the reindeer.
** Films like ''Dinosaur'' and ''The Lion King'' have a cast of entirely African animals with no humans at all, ** Films like ''Bambi'' and ''The Great Mouse Detective'' have a human cast implied but never or rarely physically present.
** Films like ''Winnie the Pooh'' and ''Oliver and Company'' where the cast is predominately animal but also have a human (or humans) as major supporting characters.
** Films like ''The Jungle Book'' where the protagonist is human but the bulk of the cast is animal.
** ''Pinocchio'', ''The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr Toad'', ''The Rescuers'' and ''The Rescuers Down Under'' feature an equally human and animal cast.
** The first act of ''Tarzan'' zigzags between 4 and 7 on the scale--the first act is Tarzan living among the gorillas, but In the second act, the humans arrive, including Jane and Clayton, pushing the animal characters to the background and the film to Level 7.
** ''The Emperors New Groove'' is a Level 6; it stars Kuzco the llama, although he's actually a human who fell victim of BalefulPolymorph. The rest of the cast are humans, except for Bucky the squirrel.
* SlidingScaleOfAnimationElaborateness: The films uniformly land at the top of the scale.

Added DiffLines:

* ComicBookAdaptation: There have been a '''lot''' of comic books based on the films, way too many to list as is, and they've been around as long as ''Snow White''.


Added DiffLines:

* DisneySchoolOfActingAndMime: TropeCodifier.


Added DiffLines:

* LongRunner: The canon started with ''Snow White'' in 1937, has well over 50 films under its belt, and is showing no signs of slowing down to this day.


Added DiffLines:

* MohsScaleOfViolenceHardness: The canon is all over the place with this. You have films like ''Three Caballeros'' and ''The Emperors New Groove'' with nothing but cartoony violence, and the canon rarely stays beyond that level of violence to keep the tone of the films family friendly. But on rare occasions, the films will dip into the 2 scale, such as the scene of Quasimodo's mother getting brutally killed on-screen in ''The Hunchback of Notre Dame''.


Added DiffLines:

* ShadesOfConflict: The films generally rely on BlackAndWhiteMorality, and occasionally dip into grayer morality on occasion.

Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationSpeciesChange:
** ''Disney/{{Bambi}}'': [[Literature/{{Bambi}} The novel's]] Bambi was a roe deer in (presumably) Austria, but Disney made Bambi a white-tailed deer in Maine because the latter species was more familiar to American audiences.
** In the original ''Literature/PeterPan'', Nana is a Newfoundland, but in the [[Disney/PeterPan Disney adaptation]], she is a Saint Bernard.
** In the original ''Literature/BasilOfBakerStreet'' books, Professor Ratigan was implied to have been a mouse. In ''Disney/TheGreatMouseDetective'', his species is changed to a rat to be more in line with his last name.
** In Creator/EdgarRiceBurroughs original ''Literature/{{Tarzan}}'' stories, Sabor was a lioness, but in [[Disney/{{Tarzan}} Disney's Tarzan]], she was changed to a leopardess--since lions don't live in the jungle, this was a largely pragmatic change. Also, the apes Tarzan lived with weren't gorillas, but a fictional species of ape (or hominid?) called mangani. The mangani were mortal enemies of the bolgani (the mangani's blanket term for gorillas).
** In ''Literature/TheSnowQueen'', the titular queen is heavily implied to be of TheFairFolk. In ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'', Elsa is a human who was born with the ability to create and manipulate ice and snow.
