Disney Announces Its 10th Princess: Rapunzel

Mandy Moore with Rapunzel dollRapunzel will join the likes of Snow White and Cinderella in the Disney “royal court” this coming October, in a star-studded ceremony literally fitting the notion of royalty, the company announced today.  The celebration will take place at Kensington Palace in London, the birthplace of Queen Victoria and a residence owned by the British Royal Family.  The location was secured through a partnership between Disney and Historic Royal Palaces, an independent charitable organization that receives no funding from the British government or the Crown.

Rapunzel is to be honored following the success of last year’s film “Tangled,” which told the story of the famous long-haired heroine as voiced by the actress Mandy Moore.  The film is among the top 10 highest-grossing Disney movies in the company’s 88-year history.  In a release announcing Rapunzel’s big news, Disney said:

Rapunzel is a modern heroine – she may have lived her entire life locked inside a hidden tower but Rapunzel is no damsel in distress. The girl with 70 feet of glowing, magical hair is an energetic, inquisitive young lady who fills her days with art, books and imagination. She is full of curiosity about the outside world and can’t help but feel her true destiny lies outside of the lonely tower walls.

Tiana, the main character from the 2009 movie “The Princess and the Frog” was the most recent princess to join the court.  She was also Disney’s first African American princess.

The other 9 Disney princesses are:

  • Ariel (The Little Mermaid)
  • Aurora (Sleeping Beauty)
  • Belle (Beauty and the Beast)
  • Cinderella (Cinderella)
  • Jasmine (Aladdin)
  • Mulan (Mulan)
  • Pocahontas (Pocahontas)
  • Snow White (Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs)
  • Tiana (The Princess and the Frog)
