Buzz Feed recently posted an article giving the age of each of the classic Disney Princesses in the films which they appeared. But that got us thinking even more about Cinderella, Snow White and the rest, wondering how old they would be TODAY!
Thanks to the Disney Wiki we were able to do the math and come up with their current ages. Of course, the older the film, the older the princess.
Snow White- 90
The oldest Disney Princess would be Snow White, celebrating her 90th birthday this year, with her agreed upon age during the 1937 film being 14.
Whoever thought Cinderella would be an octogenarian? But gauged at 19 in the 1950 film, she would now come in at 82-years-old.
Princess Aurora- 70
The Sleeping Beauty heroine was cursed to her death on her 16th birthday. Luckily, and in true Disney fashion, that never happened, making our drowsy Princess 70 this year.
It took quite a few years for the next Disney Princess to be discovered, but in 1989, 16-year-old Ariel splashed her way into the hearts of The Little Mermaid fans all over the world. This year Ariel hits a milestone year, turning 40.
Belle, the beauty of Beauty & The Beast, could easily be looked at as Ariel’s slightly younger sister. At 17 years old when the movie was released in 1991, Belle will spend this year enjoying the last year of her thirties.
As the next-to-youngest Disney Princess (Snow White beats them all out in that regard), Princess Jasmine will turn 36 this year. Aladdin‘s gal was only 15 during filming. Wonder if she, or any of the other Disney Princesses, had on-set tutors? 🙂
If the 1995 Disney film had been historically accurate, Pocahontas would have been 12 in 1607, but instead she is represented as 18, making her exactly 18 years older than when the film was released.
16-year-old Mulan became the first Asian Disney Princess in 1998 (although if Aladdin had stuck to the story’s original locale, Jasmine would have been Chinese).
Another ground-breaking Disney Princess, Tiana from The Princess and the Frog became the royal court’s first African-American Princess in 2009. Aged 19 in the film, today Tiana would be 23.
The final Disney Princess to be officially welcomed into the Disney Princess Royal Court in October, 2011 was Rapunzel. When the film Tangled was released in 2012, the girl with the golden tresses had just turned 18.Now she’s ready to party!
The latest Disney Princess to be seen on the screen, Princess Merida of Brave, is set to join the official Disney Princess lineup in June.
