List of Disney Princess Movies in Order

In 1937, the world met the first Disney Princess as the magic of fairy tales came to the big screen and classic storytelling was reinvented for the movies. Snow White's high voice and flight into the forest captured the imaginations of thousands of little girls and their families alike. Both the young and the young at heart followed Snow White on her escape from the evil queen, her fateful bite of the poisoned apple, and the magical kiss that brought her back to life.

Since then, nine other princesses have joined the ranks of the Disney Princess movie collection. From 1937 to 2010, other heroines have fallen in love, endured amazing adventures, flown on magic carpets, and even kissed a frog. The Disney Princess movies are, in order of release:

Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty were both introduced in the 1950s. It was not until 1989 that the youngest daughter of Triton, Ariel swam onto the silver screen. Once the popularity of this vivacious redhead was firmly established, Disney created a steady stream of Disney Princess movies in the 1990s. It was then that Belle offered herself as a prisoner instead of her father only to then fall in love with her captor. During this time Jasmine sailed on Aladdin's magic carpet and fell in love with a street rat. Pocahontas' close relationship with nature and her tribe were challenged by foreign visitors like John Smith. As her father's only daughter, Mulan impersonated a man and, along with Mushu and her other friends, fought the Hun army.

In recent years two new princesses have joined the line-up and become the final additions in the order of Disney Princess movies. On the Louisiana bayou in 2009, Tiana kissed a frog and discovered what inner beauty was all about. In 2010, Rapunzel became a member of the Disney Princess club after using her glowing hair to escape from Gothel's hold in order to be with her prince.

From Snow White to Sleeping Beauty to Mulan to Rapunzel, the Disney Princesses have experienced romance and adventure in front of generations of viewers both young and old.
