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]] 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 Disney plans on retaining the "Frozen" brand as a unique entity from the Disney Princess franchise.

They were just a bunch of characters, but then people at Disney realized how popular they were with young girls (because of the PrincessPhase), and then made a [[{{Toys}} toy line]] of them [[FollowTheLeader in a manner like]] Franchise/{{Barbie}}. This includes not only dolls, but a whole variety of merchandise, as is usual with Disney. The line also makes [[GirlsNeedRoleModels role models]] out of the princesses, often {{Anvilicious}}ly teaching the values of honesty, kindness and [[GreenAesop recycling]] in their DirectToVideo shorts and films.

* ParentalAbandonment: Every princess lost at least one parent, except for Aurora, and she didn't even know her parents until she was 16 (to hide her from a curse).

* ParentService: The merch tends to make all the girls a bit more curvy than in the films. There's some of it in the films. Notably Ariel is effectively nude when she turns into a human, Jasmine gets dressed up in [[GoGoEnslavement a sexy slave outfit by Jafar]], Pocahontas gets a long shot where she's climbing up a rock and her ass is in the centre of the camera, and Mulan takes a naked dip in the river.

* 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 loses it at the end). Pocahontas has hair down to her ass, though the exact length is hard to determine since it's constantly being blown about by a DramaticWind.

Added DiffLines:

** 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.

* FollowTheLeader: Franchise/{{Barbie}}, in terms of the toys. Mattel is behind both doll franchises. Another Mattel property, ''Franchise/EverAfterHigh'', also calls back to fairy tales and has many characters based on the princesses whose stories are covered in this line. (In fact, in EAH, princesses are a privileged social class, which seems to be inspired by the success of the Disney Princess line.)
