** I say it's just because she's not human. The Disney Princesses are meant to be relatable and appealing to girls, which is a lot easier to achieve when they're of the same species. I can't imagine a lot of little girls saying "I want to be like a giant cat when I grow up!" It just sounds silly.



* Why are people here saying Pocahontas isn't a princess? She's the daughter of an Native American chief. Doesn't that make her a princess?
** Princess is a specific title, daughter of a king or empress. It's not just something applied willy-nilly to anyone who is the daughter of a person in power. If that's the case, than a duke's daughter could be a princess, or a president's daughter. The Algonquin chieftain system differs from European monarchies. One term doesn't transpose into the other. Regardless, it's clear from the inclusion of Mulan that being a princess isn't necessary to make you a Disney Princess.
** She does admittedly refer to herself as a princess to the King of England in the sequel.
** And in real life, she was presented as royalty to the English. They didn't quite understand how the Native American chieftain system worked, and so they just presented Pocahontas as the princess. John Rolfe's family in real life even worried about him marrying so far above his station, since they thought Pocahontas was actually royalty.
** OP here: I just wanted to apologize for posting this if I offended anyone out there. I'd honestly just thought that the Native Americans had princesses.

** Short-haired dolls are a bitch to make, [[SailorMoon it is the reason the Sailor Starlights were given long hair]]; also, having long blonde hair is kind of iconic to the Rapunzel fairy tale.

** Since the success of Frozen, any new princess is expected to hold up their own franchise. Hence no more princesses being added to the line.

* Is the Disney Princess franchise basically over, now that all new princesses have been excluded from it?

** One, she's live-action, and despite Disney giving her a "redesign", she'd really stand out against the other girls who are much more, hum, "animated". Two, Star Wars is really a world of its own, and it doesn't really fit the "Disney Aesthetic" too well (compare Disney films having bright and sunny backgrounds, cute talking animals, and sweet morals over Star Wars which is much more..."cold" so to say compared to the cheery atmosphere of Mickey's world). Perhaps that's sorta why Disney knows it well and they often keep Star Wars stuff on its own, apart from the rest of Disney. I think if you even try to insert Star Wars images next to classical Disney imagery like in those crossover videos or stuff like Fantasmic! it'd look really out of place.

And now that Carrie Fisher is gone, it might seem like an insult to her memory to placer her character on the line.
