Beauty in Disney’s Classic Princesses (& The Little Mermaid)

One thought on “Beauty in Disney’s Classic Princesses (& The Little Mermaid)”

  1. I’ve always loved Ariel’s character design, but my favourite Disney movie is currently “Tangled”, featuring Rapunzel as the heroine. I realized only recently that they share the same character designer, Glen Keane. He’s said that the inspiration behind the characters are his wife and daughter, respectively. I don’t know how much freedom he might have had with Ariel’s design, but perhaps a more personal inspiration resulted in a character that was less conceptual/a representation of the time than the princesses before.
