Walt Disney Confessions
“I am really enjoying that Disney is making the love interests of the newer princesses have backstories and are not stereotypical princes that are just there for the 'happy ending'. I'm happy that they help the main character's advance through the story and that they have personalities, instead of being plain like some of the previous princes.” Posted on tumblr.com by waltdisneyconfessions.
