    It has to be officiated? I assumed any time a princess (or Mulan) was shown in a Disney movie it was automatic.

    Is Nala a Disney Princess?

      Yes, there is an official list of 12 (now 13 if you include Raya) Disney Princesses. Unfortunately, Nala is not one of them, but neither is Anna or Elsa, believe it or not, despite the latter two appearing in Ralph Breaks the Internet. The official lineup is very selective, having tested many female Disney characters in the past like Alice, Tinker Bell, Esmeralda, Megara, Jane, etc, but rejecting a majority of them for a variety of reasons that usually relate to marketability. This testing process can also be very lengthy, as it took almost 3 years for Moana to be officially included, so I guess it speaks to how carefully Disney wants to meaningfully add to the Princess brand.
