Cinderella may have been based from on ancient Greek tale.
In the tale, a woman named Rhodopis loses her sandal in a public bath. An eagle then scooped it up and drops it on the lap of a pharaoh, who is so intrigued by the event, he starts a country wide search for it’s owner. After the pharaoh finally locates Rhodopis, the two get married.
The various scenes where Ariel sits on a rock were all inspired by a real life sculpture. The statue is called ”The Little Mermaid”and is located at a harbor front in Copenhagen, Denmark.
Pocahontas is one of only two Disney princesses to have tattoos.
Mulan’s name translates to ”wood flower” or ”magnolia”.
Cinderella loses her shoe not once, not twice, but three times in the original film. First, she loses her shoe while delivering the breakfast trays. After that, she loses her glass slipper while running away from the ball. And finally , her shoe falls off on her wedding day.
The decision to make Ariel’s hair red was not made at random. Actually, Ariel was deliberately given red hair to differentiate her character from Madison in Splash, a live action mermaid film that came out of a few years prior.
Beyonce was considered to voice Tiana. However Beyonce refused to audition.
The loose hair in Belle’s ponytail has a story behind it. When Paige O’Hara was auditioning for the role of Belle, a piece of hair fell out of her ponytail. She then brushed it back. The animators liked the moment so much, they decided to put it in the movie.
In Frozen, Elsa’s ice castle changes color based on her emotions. The color symbolism is fairly standard, blue means she is happy, red means she is fearful and yellow signifies she’s angry.
