You have to admit - Disney does heroines pretty well. Although clearly they're even better when they're, say....
Hell yeah! STEAM WHITE!
Tiana's tough. The story's not as well know as the others, and the movie changes all the details anyway. If I hadn't seen it 20 times in the last year I would have missed her too. The newest princess, Rapunzel, isn't in the shot, but she would have been easy.
I was unsure about Aurora/Cinderella, too. I haven't seen Cinderella in a long time (about to be released on bluray!) and didn't remember what her dress looks like. And who knows
what color Aurora's dress is supposed to be? The two bumbling fairies, Flora and Merryweather, keep changing it - "Make it pink!" "Make it blue!".
Ultimately, the one front and center had to be Cinderella. After all, as I mentioned elsewhere, if the princesses were the Justice League, Cinderella would have to be Superman.
But, in exploring all of these rich and varied interpretations of the iconic character of Snow White, I think we've wandered from the original question. Getting some perspective is always helpful, and we've gotten a lot of perspective here! Perhaps it's time to revisit the question.
What is it about Snow White?
There must be more to it than just Kristen Stewart's extreme prettiness.
I think I have an idea ...
