One of the Disney characters is responsible for becoming the princess with the least screen time and lines among all the films; find out who!
Formed by girls of different nationalities, with totally different cultures and personalities, the disney counts with a select group of princesses, that in all, totaling 12 holders of the crown. All of them obtained the title after appearing in an animation, and fulfilling the other requirements of the list defined by the studio:
- Be at least half human;
- Be the protagonist of your own story;

It is worth remembering that the plot of Aurora is an adaptation of the book by the French writer Charles Perrault (1628 – 1703), as reported by the Disney website. Perrault’s version is one of the most popular of the classic story, which has also been adapted by great authors, such as the Brothers Grimmwho wrote their version in 1812.

In addition, Aurora’s story is a milestone among productions starring princesses for another reason: it is the starting point of a three-decade hiatus without adaptations of fairy tales where the holders of the crown are the protagonists, as that after its release, the next film starring a princess only appeared in 1989, with ‘The Little Mermaid’.
