Disney "Princess" Revolt by GargoyleGoddess21 Disney "Princess" Revolt by GargoyleGoddess21
This picture has a story to it... several stories actually. First, I did this picture about in 2003. I was working at the Disney Store and we have the *Princess Collection*. Back then the Princess Collection included Snow White, Cinderella, Aurora, Ariel, Belle, and Jasmine (it's expanded since then). So, I started thinking about the OTHER Disney princesses who never get any attention. Some of them actually having the status of princess, others just were the Disney heroine of the movie. But, some of the girls in the *Disney Princess Collection* aren't Princesses, perhaps they married INTO power, but they weren't a princess. So, my mind started pondering about a Disney *Princess* Revolt, and this is what came of it. ^^ Characters from Left to Right: Anastasia (yes, I know she's not Disney, tell that to the people who kept coming into the Disney store asking for an Anya doll!), Pocahontas, Mulan, Eilonwy, Jane, Kida, Esmeralda, and Megara. This picture was first seen on Elfwood in 2003...

Now, story #2. Characters from this picture (and another one Disney chibi pic I did) were STOLEN and turned into fradulent Disney/Coke/McDs pins, and sold on Ebay. I discovered them one night whilst cruising Ebay, around... Nov/Dec of 2003. I was flabbergasted so to speak, and worked on getting the pins not sold on Ebay. I also took the Disney chibi pics down off of Elfwood, much to the dismay of the fans who loved them, but I didn't want any more characters stolen.

However times have changed.

I don't shop on Ebay anymore (due to some prior experiences with them, one of the pertaining to THIS thief incident) so I don't know how successful I was at having the Disney chibi pins (or as they are called "Young Disney Princesses" off of Ebay. However, I don't think I should hide the chibis anymore. They are MY fanart of Disney characters. I DON'T own the characters, I did these drawings for pleasure and fun. AND NO ONE ELSE has the right to steal MY artwork of DISNEY'S characters and make a profit off of them. Thus, I want the chibis out there, and I want people to know that art thieves stole MY artwork. Disney, Coke, nor McDs probably know about this, with as much as their big companies make, my stolen artwork of Disney characters is probably an insignificant expense. However, if there IS anyone out there with hookups to the big wigs of these companies (particularly Disney), I would love to tell them about this. Since this happened 3 years ago I know the theive's trail is long gone , when I tried to find out the whos, whys and wheres from sellers they claimed ignorance. But I want the people to know, and I want people to enjoy this piece, it brought a lot of laughs to those who saw it on Elfwood. And that, my friends, was the reason I did it to begin with...

Anya belongs to 20th Century Fox; Pocahontas, Mulan, Eilonwy, Jane, Kida, Esmeralda, and Megara belong to Disney

Incorrect. Eilonwy is an actual princess. Kida WAS a princess but is now a Queen as she rules Atlantis with her nerd King Milo. Pocahontas is not a technical princess but was treated as one as the chief's daughter.  Anya is Anastasia who was sort of a princess but not because the Russian court was weird like that. They preferred Arch Duchess or something over princess. If you mean the official Disney Princess line that is also incorrect as Mulan was included in the line as a princess even though she isn't and Pocahontas is also included even though she technically isn't. Eilonwy isn't included because the movie was such a flop and a dark themed movie on a darker themed book series and a bunch of other things. It's hard to find official disney stuff from The Black Cauldron. 

How I know: I worked for Disney for 2 years so know an obscene amount of facts about it.

Yeah, according to Disney, Eilonwy isn't a princess, due to a lack of songs on her movie or something.

Her movie wasn't popular, that's why. Merida from Brave didn't have much music in her movie but she was still consider a Disney princess.

The funny thing is Pocahontas and Mulan are part of the official Princess franchise, but they still get much less coverage than the others for some reason..go figure

Last time I watched Anastasia with my sister, she thought it was a Disney film, but I had to explain it to her. Anastasia may not have been made by Disney, but it was worthy of being made by Disney, it's certainly a great, however underrated movie.
