* 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. Another special case is [[Disney/{{Enchanted}} Giselle]], who can't be used because Disney would have to pay Creator/AmyAdams royalties to use her image on their products.

* [[TalkingToHimself Singing to Herself]]: Lea Salonga as the singing voices of Jasmine and Mulan. Oddly enough Salonga is replaced by Liz Callaway for the two ''Aladdin'' sequels before returning to sing for Jasmine and Mulan in TheMerch.

** ''Theatre/SwanLake'', ''Bluebeard'', ''Rumpelstiltskin'', ''Aida'', and ''The Love For Three Oranges'' were each going to be made into a film at some point by Disney (although the first was eventually made into a non-Disney animated film, ''TheSwanPrincess''). Maybe their heroines would have been in this franchise.
** Giselle from ''Film/{{Enchanted}}'' was going to be given Disney Princess status as well, but Disney abandoned the idea when they realized they would have to secure life-long rights to the image of Creator/AmyAdams, Giselle's actress. Not to mention ''Aida'' got a Disney-supported stage musical.

*** For one thing, Elsa is a queen (same reason why [[Disney/AtlantisTheLostEmpire Kida]] is absent from this[[note]]She became queen in the end of her film[[/note]] and not helped the fact the film she appeared was one of the {{Box Office Bomb}}s that Disney had during their post-Renaissance Eisner era DorkAge)

** Had ''Disney/TheBlackCauldron'' not been a near-CreatorKiller for Disney, one would wonder if Eilonwy would become part of the founding line-up?

** Brenda Chapman, co-director of WesternAnimation/{{Brave}}, [[http://www.buzzfeed.com/ryanhatesthis/people-are-very-angry-that-disney-redesigned-merida-from-bra got very angry about the most recent redesign of the princesses]], especially Merida, who she felt had been redesigned to be HotterAndSexier.

* CelebrityVoiceActor: Rapunzel has the most famous voice actress of all the princesses - pop star Music/MandyMoore. Mulan's actress Ming Na-Wen has retroactively become more famous through her high profile role in ''Series/AgentsOfShield''. Tiana is also voiced by Tony winner Anika Noni Rose. Merida is voiced by noted Scottish actress Kelly Macdonald.



* OriginalCharacter: Technically Merida is this to the franchise, since she is the only heroine not based on a prexisting source.

* 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.)
