Disney has included others in the merchandise at times, such as Alice of ''Disney/AliceInWonderland'' and Giselle of ''Film/{{Enchanted}}'', but they have never officially been added to the roster. [[note]]In ''Enchanted'''s case, this is because Disney would have to pay Creator/AmyAdams royalties to use her image so they decided against it.[[/note]] Esmeralda of ''Disney/TheHunchbackOfNotreDame'' was an actual Princess until 2004. Anna and Elsa from ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'' were expected to be the 12th and 13th to join the line-up, but it appears (for now, anyway) that Disney plans on retaining the "Frozen" brand as a unique entity from the Disney Princess franchise. The same applies to ''Disney/{{Moana}}'', which follows most of the Disney princess conventions and was even advertised as such but has not been officially included in the line. This may change, however, as Anna, Elsa, and Moana are set to be included in the lineup alongside the others for an extended cameo in the sequel to ''Wreck-It Ralph''. and princesses [[WesternAnimation/SofiaTheFirst Sofia]] and [[WesternAnimation/ElenaOfAvalor Elena]], though characters from the Disney princess line regularly feature in the former.[[note]]And,

* AdvertisedExtra: Pocahontas and Mulan. They're both considered "official princesses", but they are left out of majority of the advertising.
** To lesser degrees than Pocahontas and Mulan, Jasmine and Tiana also get this treatment. Many have took notice how often these 4 particular princess usually get the crap end of the stick, and some have speculated it to be race related issue, as they are the only non-white princesses, and ironically some of the far more recent and recognizable ones. Despite that, they are less likely to be showcased.

Despite that, they are less likely to be showcased. Also notable is that three out of four have considerably less finery than the other princesses - Jasmine has a BedlahBabe outfit, while Mulan and Pocahontas have simple dresses.



* HonoraryPrincess: In 2013, Mulan joined the franchise along with Disney/{{Pocahontas}} (sometimes considered as honorary too, being TheChiefsDaughter ), [[Disney/ThePrincessAndTheFrog Tiana]], and [[Disney/{{Tangled}} Rapunzel]]. She is actually the daughter, and the wife, of military men, but still: Mulan was included in the franchise mainly so Asian little girls could have "their" Disney princess. [[spoiler: Mulan actually nearly married a prince in the sequel, and when she offered her hand, a counselor of the king said he should accept, as an heroin such as Mulan will be a better daughter in law than "simple princesses".]]

* HonoraryTrueCompanion: [[Disney/AliceInWonderland Alice]] is sometimes included in the line, and was featured in the Disney Princess magazines in the early 2000s.



* ParentalAbandonment: Every princess lost at least one parent, except for Aurora (who didn't even know her parents until her 16th birthday, as she was being protected from a curse), Rapunzel, and Merida.

* ParentalAbandonment: Every princess lost at least one parent, except for Aurora (who didn't even know her parents until her 16th birthday, as she was being protected from a curse), Rapunzel, and Merida. Mulan has both parents alive and well (with her grandmother for added measure), and her plot is trying to prevent losing her father.



* RapunzelHair: Jasmine's hair goes down to her thighs, Merida has hair down to her hips curled (and would therefore be enormously long straight) and Rapunzel is based on the TropeNamer fairytale (though like that story, she loses it at the end). Pocahontas has hair down to her behind, though the exact length is hard to determine since it's constantly being blown about by a DramaticWind.

* RapunzelHair: Jasmine's hair goes down Due to her thighs, Merida has hair down to her hips curled (and would therefore be enormously long straight) and LongHairIsFeminine, a few of the princesses.
**
Rapunzel is based on the TropeNamer fairytale (though like that story, she loses it at most literal example, since her movie is an adaptation of the end). Pocahontas has TropeNamer. Her hair is roughly seventy feet long, justified by being magic.
** Jasmine mostly keeps hers tied up, but when it's let down in one scene, it nearly reaches her knees.
** Merida's hair is quite long but as it's quite curly, one can imagine it'd be even longer if it's straight. Her mother's hair reaches
down to the floor.[[note]]Human hair can grow to such lengths depending on the person's genes. So in this case Merida gets her behind, long hair from her mother.[[/note]]
** Ariel's goes to just about waist length when she's human.
** Pocahontas's is quite long,
though the exact length is hard to determine determine, since it's constantly being blown about by in a DramaticWind. She apparently had several animators working on just her hair.

** The princesses as a whole became more action oriented in the 90s, with the exception of Belle (not that she's not proactive; she's just not as much of an ActionGirl as the others).



* TrueBlueFemininity: The most common color for the princesses to wear in their films. Only Pocahontas and Rapunzel don't have any dresses that are wholly or prominently blue.

** Belle in the [[Film/BeautyAndTheBeast2017 live action remake]] too. She's already trying to escape the castle on her first night and has a more direct role in the climax.

of course, there are the various examples of Disney princesses not affiliated in any way with major merchandise, like [[Disney/AtlantisTheLostEmpire Kida]]

* ExiledFromContinuity: While the official roster includes [[ArtifactTitle two characters who are not princesses]] and other non-princesses have appeared from time to time, there are several actual princesses from the Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon who have been omitted. The roster has always tended to skew towards more popular works, which is usually taken to be the main reason [[Disney/TheBlackCauldron Eilonwy]] and [[Disney/AtlantisTheLostEmpire Kida]] have never been included, although the DarkerAndEdgier aspects of those two films may also be part of the reason. Non-human princesses such as [[Disney/{{Bambi}} Faline]], [[Disney/TheLionKing Nala, and Kiara]] are also left out, likely because they don't wear glamorous clothes or jewelry, and consequently [[VirtualPaperDoll can't be dressed up]] like the human princesses (though it may also be because like {{most writers|AreHuman}}, most audience members are human). In other cases, the nature of the source material is the most likely factor: [[spoiler:[[Disney/WreckItRalph Vanellope von Schweetz]]]] is never included, probably in part because her status as a princess is a spoiler,[[note]]and because she [[spoiler: relinquishes her title and abolishes the monarchy in Sugar Rush]] almost immediately after TheReveal[[/note]] but likely also due to her film being aimed at an older audience and her character [[DefiedTrope not fitting the]] PrincessClassic model at all.
* {{Expy}}: Cinderella, Ariel and Belle get rock-star-doll counterparts in the form of Ella, Ari and Gabrielle - the popDreamers. There's a music album. Around the same time, there was also the ''Disney Girls'' children's book series, which centered around girls who were basically otakin of six of the princesses.

* SpotlightStealingSquad: While Snow White was the very first princess to be created by Disney, the lead princess in this franchise is Cinderella, Disney's second princess. As a result, she gets more attention than Snow White and has more merchandise made than her. Case in point: whenever Snow White gets re-released on home video, there's very few pieces of tie-in merchandise released (with the 2001 release only getting a [[UsefulNotes/{{McDonalds}} Happy Meal]] and the 2017 release only getting a set of collector's dolls), while whenever Cinderella gets re-released, tons of tie-in merchandise is made.
