Their mission is to declutt(e)r, and so they cut out the fluff and only offer truly important articles.

If I don’t get eaten by space eels, I’m asking for one of these for my birthday.


#4

Poor Tiana couldn’t even take her home state of Louisiana, meanwhile Moana is all over the map despite her own explicit insistence that she wasn’t a princess.


#5

Let it go.


#6

I was always more partial to:


#7

We have dibs on that in Arizona. Notice how her finger is poised to shove it in our former President’s face? :rolling_eyes:


#8

I can’t believe Snow White is more popular than Princess Leia in California. What kind of survey is this?!?


#9

Why isn’t the entire map just one big Princess Leia head?


#10

I’m not sure this study conforms to the best practices as set by the National Academy of Princess Sciences.


#11

Snow White was made in California and funded by a California bank so her populatirity has been here from day one–at a time when no one else would risk funding a first-time feature length animated movie.

I’ve just realized there is no Jasmine. And no Esmeralda (though she may not count as a princess…?).

So I guess you really can find a political message there.


#13

o_0 not really sure politics has anything to do with it.

Especially Esmeralda, as that has to be one of Disney’s least popular movies ever.

Also - Leia is now a Disney Princess, I bet they didn’t even factor her in the ratings.

Tiana?

Meanwhile, the map of favorite Disney generals by US state has Leia Organa for all fifty. So much for diversity!


#16

Agreed. She’s not really a princess so much as Queen of Creepy voice.

And fun fact: The many Snow Whites at Disneyland (the human characters are allowed to talk) do the same creepy voice.

My favorite disney princess:


#17

Really? No state was hipster enough to pick Princess Eilonwy?

She’s from this movie Disney did back before they got all commercial and mainstream. You’ve probably never heard of it.


#18

Or at least from the period when they briefly forgot how to be commercial and mainstream, no matter how desperately they wanted to be so.


#19

No Merida?

Fake news.

What is it with “princesses” as a thing? Sure, I’d be the first to agree that it rolls off the tongue better than “brood mare of hereditary despotism”; but that is only an argument for the term, not the role.
