Top 10 Disney Heroines (pg. 2)
Gone are the days of Disney flicks packed full of damsels in distress, waiting for Prince Charming to swoop in and save them. Today's animated ladies are just as brave, fierce and dazzling as their male counterparts. Here's a look at some of the Disney heroines who put the "power" in girl power.
5. Princess Jasmine (Aladdin)
Jasmine never saved the world from disaster, or battled mega-demons, but she certainly isn't afraid to speak her own mind. The free-spirited princess runs away from home to avoid marrying a man she doesn't love and to avoid the confines of palace life. She faces danger and captivity, but is shrewd and cunning enough to get herself out of some seriously tricky situations - with a little help from Aladdin, of course.
4. Alice (Alice in Wonderland)
Alice is a curious spirit, who is a lot more than the "sugar, spice and everything nice" cliché. In fact, she's defiant, talks back to adults, and won't be pushed around. Alice is by no means fearless, but she certainly doesn't let fear get in the way of her adventurous spirit. She gets bonus points for not being even slightly boy crazy. High five for realizing there is more to life, Alice!
3. Lilo (Lilo & Stitch)
2. Pocahontas (Pocahontas)
Gutsy and heroic, Pocahontas helped bridge the gap between Native Americans and European Settlers in an attempt to prevent violence and misunderstanding. She put the needs of her community before her own desire to be with the man she loved, and that makes Pocohontas a true heroine.
1. Mulan (Mulan)
Mulan takes the top spot for being the bravest, smartest, and most fearless Disney heroine to date. Mulan disguises herself as a man to take her aging father's place in the Chinese army. She learns quickly, and eventually helps to save the Imperial City from the invading Huns. While there are plenty of Disney princesses out there, Mulan is one of the few real warriors.
