Over time, Disney princesses have gradually moved away from just dreaming about finding a prince to wanting to explore new worlds and achieving life goals for themselves.
As we observe the character development from Snow White to Princess Tiana from The Princess and the Frog, we get the idea that life is not always just about finding love in an instant, and belief alone will not fulfill our biggest wishes. We have to be more open-minded with what we want, be patient with love, and look at life in a broader sense (what’s really important). Above all, we have to work actively to make our dreams come true. From the early to mid-20th century to the 21st century, Disney has made fairy tales more realistic and sets better examples for women today (and tomorrow).
