Possible Reasons For Lineup Exclusion

  • They aren’t human or humanlike (e.g., Nala from “The Lion King”).
  • Their films were so successful that they needed a separate franchise (e.g., Tinker Bell was removed from the Disney Princess franchise for her lead role in the Disney Fairies franchise)
  • Anna and Elsa were supposed to join the Disney Princess lineup but had their own franchise after the movie’s phenomenal success.
  • Their films were critical or commercial failures (e.g., Kida from “Atlantis: The Lost Empire” and Eilonwy from “The Black Cauldron”)
  • They’re foreign creations (e.g., Neptunia, Eurasia Toft, and Agent Uma).
  • They’re from a Disney TV series that don’t affiliate with the Disney Princess franchise (e.g., Kim Possible)
  • Their inclusion introduced a problem for the other members of the line-up (e.g., Jane wears a yellow gown similar to Belle’s)
  • Their products weren’t a commercial success (e.g., Esmeralda wasn’t selling as well as the others)
