is this the right forum?  we are tv-free, watch 1-2 movies a month, do some educational web stuff.  but dd stumbled upon princess-y movies in netflix.  what is the least offensive (sorry, that's how i feel about the disney crap out there) of the princess movies?  maybe pocahontas?  i really cant stand the little mermaid type princesses that have come out since the 90s.  huge breasts, ridiculously small waist, and the whole damsel in distress thing - ugh.  help me out mamas :)

Well, there's Shrek....not very princessy, but Fiona is very much a hold her own strong type, and obviously as an ogre, not the tiny waist type either.  It's not Disney either.

 

On the Disney front...Beauty and Beast is not very damsel in distress...she's the one that saves the beast.

The Princess and the Frog has a strong female lead.

I don't know if Mulan counts as a "princess" but I think it's a good film.

Ella Enchanted?

 

If you can get ahold of the Paper Bag Princess, that would be cool!

i second The Princess and the Frog because she works to make her own dreams come true and even says it somewhere in the film.  Also, Mulan has a strong female character who goes out to fight a war in place of her father.
