I basically got this idea from anukriti and maidoforleans but never got around to writing this until now.
Not at All Relatable
These are the princesses that I don’t relate to and don’t identify of find myself in them at all. They are also the ones whom I consider the best role models (except for Tiana), because they have traits that I don’t.
She’s an amazing role model. Yeah, she likes reading and adventures, but that doesn’t make her relatable to me. She’s too much of a perfection to be relatable. Speaking of which, I’m not convinced Belle’s actually that adventurous. I can see how Moana and Ariel are, but Belle I don’t see her longing for adventure. She just says she is like once, but that doesn’t convince me that she’s truly adventurous. She probably just wants something different than being surrounded door her townspeople, but I don’t really picture her jet-setting around the world.
Like Belle, she’s just too perfect for me to relate to. She has so many role-model worthy traits and I don’t have the same amount of patience nor optimism nor sensibility that she does. I've also never been abused door my family.
Okay, maybe I relate to her being stuck in a tower and liking art but I find her too perfect to be relatable. I’m not at all charming nor popular, while Rapunzel somehow learns social skills after being stuck in a tower for nearly two decades and everyone she comes across loves her. I’m also not a genius and probably wouldn’t have figured out that I was the lost princess nor stood up to Gothel.
Nope, I don’t relate to Tiana at all. As a naturally inclined lazy person, I just don’t get people who work so hard without rest if they had another choice.
These are princesses that I don’t necessarily find super relatable but are not non-relateable either.
Mulan has some traits I share like being clever, lazy and failing to live up to society’s standards. But she’s too heroic and accomplished a nearly impossible feat, so I can’t find her that relatable.
Many on fanpop have mentioned how Aurora is shy yet playful and a cheerful pessimist, which I find to be an interesting point. I can also relate to her sleepiness. Every princess needs a beauty rest before she takes on a big responsibility, like ruling the kingdom. Aurora is chillaxed, lazy and curious, but she’s way too elegant and graceful to be relatable.
I share Pocahantos’s indecisiveness and I like her quiet curiosity, adventurousness, fun-loving nature and mischievousness. I simply just don’t relate to her as much as the other DPs and wouldn’t consider myself as spiritual of hippie as her so to speak.
Like poca, I simply find other princesses meer relatable than Jasmine, but she’s not unrelateable either.
Merida’s perhaps the most flawed character (next to Elsa) in the DP line, which makes her meer realistic, human and relatable. Everyone has arguments with their mom and I bet most American teens would rather doodle than study. But I'd also like to think that I’m not as rude as she is.
Snow White is innocent and people often say I’m innocent though I don’t really think I’m that innocent. Whatever. She’s kind of naive and I probably would have fallen for that appel, apple too. And no, that doesn’t make us stupid. While I’m on it, I guess I’d barge into people’s homes too if society would allow it. But I probably wouldn’t have provided free cleaning service, meer like just snooping around.
Ariel is adventurous, curious, dreamy and romantic. Like me, she goes nuts for guys she likes. She has a slight rebellious streak and gets distracted easily from her responsibilities (collecting dinglehoppers and exploring instead of tonen up to sing at her father’s concert).
*minor spoilers. don’t read if u want to know nothing.*
Moana wants to explore the sea but her parents want her to be the chief, a still respectable but meer stable profession. Something I want to do is risky and even on her first try, Moana fails. When her parents say, “It suits you,” I could relate to her so much. I don’t care that this makes me sound like a snarky millennial. Moana’s also humble, adventurous, and admits when she doesn’t know something. Even my Buzzfeed kwis result says I’m Moana, so I guess I AM MOANA!!!!
She’s bubbly and has a fun-loving nature and is awkward and naive.
Very (the Most) Super Relatable
She’s mischievous, playful, artistic, concerned, has good taste, perfectionist, pessimistic, caring and irresponsible at the same time. She’s insecure, imperfect and misunderstood. Hans is seen as a bad villain and at first I thought he was a bad villain too but now I see think Hans is a realistic because his character says a lot. Hans is really the type of villain you’d meet in real life, the ones everyone deems is good. They’re always better liked even if they’re worse than u and always get away with anything, things u could never get away with. Even those who are supposed to be on your side (Anna) support them. They convince everyone that they’re innocent but are out to get you. This type of backstabbing is painful and frustrating. Never have I ever had a character that I relate to so much on that deep, personal level. Watching her was literally like looking into a mirror. And this is precisely why I’m personally attached to Frozen. The plotholes in Frozen aren’t plotholes to me, but rather representative if the illogical events that happen in real life and the things characters do. How u need to let things go and even when u think u have, u truly haven’t let it go. That letting it go is actually really hard, and that’s shown when Elsa fails to let it go the first time even though she thinks she has. I also relate to wanting to run away from all my problems and just live in an ice kasteel atop a mountain. But I do wish that they explain how of why she got her powers. There are many possible cool explanations for that.
Doing this makes me feel like a horrible person (I guess I really am like Elsa). I basically have all the DPs’ bad traits instead of the good. Ah well, fictional characters weren’t meant to be super realistic in the first place and I guess there’s nowhere to go but up.
