We’ve all been watching Disney movies and cartoons from our childhood.
Nonetheless, it’s safe to say that in those times we never thought of ‘important’ things like ‘If the shoe fits perfectly on Cinderella, why did it slip off?’. Or wondered where the prince suddenly came to Princess Aurora from and ‘revived’ her? Never did the Disney Princess Ages ever crossed our minds.
However, kids today are born curious. You might’ve seen how quickly today’s kids, grasp on to an idea from a movie or a cartoon, trying to do exactly how they do. Or ask spontaneous blunt questions of all types that cross their minds which also includes Disney Princesses Ages.
It’s not long until children will start questioning, why a prince always has to save the princesses? Why couldn’t they just save themselves?! So before these questions arise, let’s talk about the age of Disney princesses. We got a lot of questions regarding this topic and we are giving you all info about it down below!!
So the youngest of all is of course Snow White. The producers told the press about Snow White’s age on its release but it’s not authentic news. However, people believe that according to a reliable source, she’s 14 years old!
Sultan/father of Princess Jasmine was looking for somebody to get her married to. Keeping in mind the old Arab traditions, she was as young as 16 when her father started looking for a man for her. But Jasmine simultaneously meets Aladdin in a market and that’s how their story begins.
Disney Princess Ages: Princess Ariel
Anyone can guess her age as she herself is seen arguing with her father over something and mumbling “I’m 16 years old. I’m not a child anymore.” With this, Princess Ariel is also 16 years old.
Princess Aurora and Princess Merida
Inquisitive about the Disney Princess Ages of these two? Both princesses are of the same age. You might know them by the name Sleeping Beauty for princess Aurora and Brave a.k.a Princess Merida.
The movie mentions Princess Aurora’s age in the movie just like Ariel. It says in the movie that she was cursed when she was born, by Maleficent. That curse said Aurora was to die before her 16th birthday’s sunset upon her. It actually happens in the movie and she’s left sleeping hence this is why she’s called the ‘Sleeping Beauty’.
Also, in the movie Brave, Merida is to choose a suitor whenever she turns 16, which is very quickly seen in the movie.
So as it turns out in the movie, Mulan was to traditionally marry around the age of 16. The movie revolves around it.
Belle from The Beauty and The Beast
Although the producers of the film Beauty and The Beast state that Belle is in her early 20’s, the fact that she still lives with her father in the village is a proof that she’s actually around the age of 17 years.
We got to take the producer’s words as there are cases where people over the age of 20 live with their parents, maybe Belle was such an exception of the West Culture, too.
Many people believe, considering her cultural background and all, that Pocahontas is 18 when she gets married. She is also one of the elder ones when it comes to Disney Princess Ages. As tribal marriages before the 18 years of age weren’t really a thing.
Although the movie, in no way, sense or form depicts the age of Cinderella, we believe she’s 19 years old considering how easily she manages to clean the whole house, is a typical maid.
Turns out, all these Disney Princesses Ages are less than 20 years of age. It’s kind of odd and ironic yet somehow makes us think, what is with Disney and its obsession with princesses age to be younger than 20?!
