    Thumbs up Disney and it's Disney Princess's

    What race hasn't Disney covered with it's Princess's line? I know they have yet to do a Hispanic Princess.

    actually, Sofia is supposedly supposed to be Latino, and yes, she counts (unfortunately)

    Who is Sophia? I'm trying to think of what movie that is and drawing a complete blank. Also, you can be white and be Hispanic, because Hispanic refers to a language group not a race.

You know…the Mickey in us.

    Oh, no wonder I didn't know who she was. If she's not in a movie, to me that hardly counts as one of the featured princesses.

    That's what I figured is Sophia is part Hispanic but she isn't a "main" Disney princess and the only places she has appeared are on Disney Jr. Live on Stage and on Disney Jr. itself.

    Also Cinderella, Ariel & Jasmine have show up with Sofia in her show so she does to count as a Princess.

    Re: Disney and it's Disney Princess's

    Growing up, I didn't have any dark haired princesses to identify with. Unless you count Snow White, nobody looked like me. I'm not too bent out of shape about not yet having a Japanese princess or Hawaiian princess (wait, scratch that...Moana is in the future! HOORAY!!!!) I was and still am obsessed with Cinderella and I'm no fair blonde, although technically Cinderella was a strawberry blonde / redhead and will always be that version in my eyes. And while I'm on the subject of her transformation, I want her silvery dress back...not the current blue one. I'm glad that Disney has added different princesses through the years like Pocahontas, Jasmine, Mulan, and Tiana. I always said to my family in a half-joking, half-serious way, that if I was ever going to work for Disneyland and be a Disney princess, it would have always been the Asian one. I could never be Cinderella.

    Re: Disney and it's Disney Princess's

    So, to address OP's question, I guess Disney's covered pretty much all the major ethnic bases, including Amphibian (Tiana as frog) and Piscatorian (Ariel as mermaid).

    Caucasian; Snow, Belle, Aurora, etc

    Caucasian of Hispanic descent; Sofia the First (if Disney counts her, I will too)

    Asian; Mulan

    African descent; Tiana

    Arabic/Middle Eastern; Jasmine

    Native American; Pocahontas

    There are so many wonderful legends/folk tales from so many different cultures, I'd love to see more classic-style animated features featuring these tales!

    I agree. I forgot to mention in my last post that I'm a mixture of Caucasian background as well so even though I didn't have princesses that "looked" like me, plenty princesses shared my mother's family background.

    I've seen her on the streets in DCA tons of times!
    Grim, I lost her once; I'm not gonna lose her again.

    I always thought a South American setting would do well for some sort of Princess and the Pea movie, the music, clothing and settings would be wonderful!!

    Technically, Mulan ISN'T a Princess, but she is included in the Princess Line. They need to do a Samoan, or Pacific Islander, Princess, which I heard they will be doing in the near future.
