When I was 4, I just loved "Sleeping Beauty
". It was (for me) the perfect princess, because she was so beautiful, and she had such a nice voice, and a nice dress, and was so kind, and friendly with animals...
However, "Sleeping Beauty" has a villain (and she can be a bit scary, as she is dark, and transforms into a dragon), but she is defeated at the end...
"Beauty and the Beast
" is also nice, as Belle is beautiful, and nice, and kind, and she has a nice voice, etc...
Same comment for "The Little Mermaid
", "Snow-White" and "Mulan".
There are Princesses and Villains, but they all lose in the end.
In fact, there must be a villain in every story, because without that, well... there won't be any story!
"Kuzco, The Emperor's New Groove"
(I think it's the English title, although I'm not quite sure...) has a villain, but she's more funny than scary. Same thing for "Peter Pan
", where Hook is villain, but always followed by the crocodile, which makes him quite funny. But there is not Princess in those two.
By the way:
Mary Poppins: no mom for the children
Of course they have a mom! And she is involved in a feminist movement.
Peter Pan: A mom that they miss when they are with Peter
Sleeping Beauty; Although she is separated from her, she has a mom (who misses her)
101 Dalmatians: the mom is an important character
The Aristocats: Same thing
Hercules: 2 moms !
Mulan: a Mom
The treasure planet: a mom
