Clearly, they heard about our Survivor: Princesses Edition. And they liked the way we think. Smile

It's SO fantastic.

Mase, I think it is because she was the daughter of an indian Chief, who I guess you can interpret to be the king of the tribe, which would make her a pricess. One of my relative generations back on my mothers side was concidered an indian princess & she was the daughter of a Chief.

I guess she is a Princess in the same what that Mary Poppins is a princess...she's not an official princess but she used to appear at a Princess breakfast at the GF.

What I don't get is up in that article they said that by being a princess it means that rapunzel will now be featured on merchandise and stuff with the other princesses, but if that's the case then how come i've never seen pocohantos or mulan on any merchandise?

Oh, you see them sometimes, although the others are more popular. My daughter has a Princess edition of Concentration, and they're all there - well, except Tiana. The game was made before she showed up. Plus, you'll see them featured with the other Princesses in displays of, say, the Barbie-type dolls at the Disney Store.

I know. It seems kind of a fine line between Princess and "other Disney girl we like to emulate" - like Alice, Elizabeth from POTC, Giselle, and Jessie from TS.

I heard a rumor once that Giselle cannot be consider a Disney princess because they would have to pay Amy Adams a percentage of everything she was on since they used her likeness. Isnt that crazy?? I dont know how much validity there is to that statement..I read it on a blog somewhere.

I guess too, because that film was kind of tongue in cheek...Disney making fun of itself. It is sooo good! I love, love the songs in it. Happy Working Song...and the actress who voiced Ariel is the receptionist and is revolted when Amy Adams gets water - and a fish - out of the fish tank, then spits the fish back into the glass. laugh

Hmmm...I'm wondering how Nala would look in a fancy dress and tiara. And then, would we have to go back in the Disney archives, and include Maid Marion, too?

I think its only fare! lol

Jess and I were having this conversation and she said because Nala was an animal. So I said... well... technically Ariel was half fish? Tiana was a frog for a bit? Just sayin... lol
