What is a Disney Princess wish-filled ” I Want” song? Notice how all the girls — and some of the guys, IE: Aladdin and Snow White’s Prince Charming — have a song full of exposition about their hopes and wishes? This was even parodied in Ralph Breaks The Internet in a genius scene where the Princesses talk about singing a song and looking into water, leading Vanellope to find a puddle and sing her own ” I Want” song.
I don’t know why Princess Vanellope isn’t a proper princess, but I suspect she’s just too young.
There’s one official Disney Princess that doesn’t have a song — can you guess who this is? (Merida from Brave.) Also, Elsa from Frozen is not considered an official Princess for Disney marketing reasons, but she SHOULD be a princess, jeez, and Anna too. Elsa’s ” I Want” song is award-winning and beloved by fans. So I’m adding it to this list. Also, I really think of Nala from The Lion King should be a Disney Princess. She’s mated to Simba, and it says he’s a King right in the movie title. So her song is here too.
I’m rewatching each song clip right now to see if they all sing to some form of water. Can you guess which songs don’t feature water? I’ll write the answer below!
With no further ado, here are the all Disney Princess wishing songs with their song clips from You Tube — enjoy!
Snow White – “I’m Wishing”
Cinderella – “A Dream Is a Wish Your Heart Makes”
Aurora – “I Wonder”
Ariel – “Part of Your World”
Belle – “Belle (reprise)”
Jasmine – “A Whole New World”
Nala – “Can You Feel The Love Tonight”
Pocahontas – “Just Around the Riverbend”
Mulan – “Reflection”
Tiana – “Almost There”
Rapunzel – “When Will My Life Begin”
Moana – “How Far I’ll Go”
Elsa – “Let it Go”
Vanellope – “A Place Called Slaughter Race”
So, who doesn’t sing to water?
Rapunzel, for one, unless you count paint. Belle doesn’t sing to any water in her song. Tiana doesn’t either, unless you count a pot of gumbo. I’m easy. Who else? Aurora and Cinderella only sing to birds, which is very “early Disney.”
