Disney Princess Trivia

Which Disney Princess Made an Onscreen Kill?

Which Disney Princess Has the Shortest Hair?

If you’re thinking it’s Snow White, think again. Surprisingly, the Disney Princess with the shortest hair is also the one with the longest. At her lengthiest, Rapunzel’s hair extends 70 feet or more. You’ll notice, however, that its bobbed length is shorter than that of any other Disney Princess.

Which Disney Princess Originally Had a Turkey Sidekick?

Originally, Disney’s first American-born Princess, Pocahontas, was intended to have a talking Turkey sidekick named “Redfeather.” John Candy was set to voice the character, which would have marked the second time he provided a voice in Walt Disney Animation (the first time being that of Wilbur in The Rescuers Down Under). But Redfeather was omitted from the storyline following the actor’s untimely death.

Can You Name All the Disney Princess Actresses Who Appeared in the Live-Action Film Enchanted (2007)?

Judy Kuhn, who provided the singing voice for the titular Pocahontas in the animated film from 1995, can be seen portraying a pregnant mother after Prince Edward knocks on her door by mistake. Paige O’Hara, the voice of Belle from Beauty and the Beast (1991), appears as a soap opera actress on television while Prince Edward is channel surfing. But it’s Jodi Benson, the voice of Ariel from The Little Mermaid (1989), who assumes the then-largest part as Sam—Robert’s secretary. In an after-the-fact coincidence, it’s interesting that Idina Menzel plays a rather large role as Nancy Tremaine in this film—predating her breakout portrayal as Elsa in Frozen (2013). And while Mary Poppins isn’t considered a Disney Princess, it’s also worth mentioning that Julie Andrews was the film’s narrator.

Before Voicing Rapunzel in Tangled (2010), What other Disney “Princess” Movie Did Mandy Moore Appear in?

Mandy Moore portrayed the mean girl role of Lana Thomas almost a decade earlier in The Princess Diaries in 2001.

Can You Name the First Two Major Characters in Disney Animation Incapable of Speaking?

Titular Dumbo arrived on the scene in 1941 as the very first nonspeaking Disney Character in a starring role.
