<p>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 :)</p>

<p>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.</p>

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

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

<p>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.</p>
