9 Cute Princess Movies Every Girl Should See Once ...

By Alison

Did you dream about being a princess when you were young? Or maybe you still secretly love the idea (what's a wedding dress if not a princess fantasy!). So grab a bucket of popcorn, make yourself comfortable on the sofa, and bring that dream back to life with one of these movies about princesses …

1 Frozen

Yes, there still are people who haven't seen the ubiquitous Frozen (including me). It certainly was a huge hit with younger viewers, leading to a flood of Elsa impersonators doing birthday parties. But you don't need to be a young tot to enjoy this modern fairytale, so grab your Elsa wig and sing along!

2 The Princess Bride

This movie is a favorite among many older folks, so if you haven't yet seen it you're in for a treat. It's a humorous tale that has many quotable lines, and you'll enjoy spotting some well-known stars in their much younger days.

3 The Princess Diaries

Imagine finding out you're a princess (even if it is only a very small country). That's what happens to Anne Hathaway in the Princess Diaries. Yes, it's pretty much the standard ugly-duckling-turned-swan nonsense, but good if you're in the mood for a modern Cinderella-type tale.

4 Pocahontas

Pocahontas may not be hot on historical accuracy, but that's not what you want from a princess movie. Her story is fascinating though, so after watching the movie why not find out some more about the real woman?

5 Young Victoria

Now for a real-life princess! Queen Victoria of Great Britain is often portrayed only as the staid widow in black, but in fact was quite a lively young woman who particularly enjoyed the bedroom side of marriage! This movie dramatises her earlier life, starting with the years before she became queen.

6 Elizabeth

If you can get past the rather gruesome opening scene, here's another movie about a real-life princess and queen. Elizabeth Tudor had a very dramatic childhood and early life, before coming to the throne aged 25 and becoming England's greatest ever ruler. Also worth checking out is the TV series 'The Virgin Queen'.

7 The Princess and the Frog

You can always rely on Disney to come up with a ready supply of princess movies. Here's a retelling of the classic fairy tale about the princess who kisses a frog … but there's a twist in the tale here!

8 Brave

If you prefer your princesses to be action heroines rather than hanging around in ball gowns waiting for a prince, then you'll love Brave. The heroine of this animated movie definitely isn't your archetypal passive princess. But her desire to escape from the norm gets her into trouble …

9 Cinderella

The princess story that everyone loves is Cinderella. The animated version is an absolute classic, but just out is this live-action big-budget version. Which would you prefer - do you love classic animation, or is the story ripe for a retelling?

Princess movies will always be popular; who doesn't love to see beautiful gowns and palaces? These movies are also about falling in love, and triumphing over adversity. They allow us to escape for a couple of hours into a fantasy world, where everything turns out happy, and what's wrong with that? Nothing! What's your favorite princess movie?
