Battle of the Princesses – a comparison of live-action Disney Princesses to their animated version

By July 7, 2019Current

TL;DR – It’s a competitive world.

Disney’s on a roll with their live-action remakes.

In 2019, they’ve released live versions of Dumbo, Aladdin and The Lion King.

More recently, Disney has announced that they will be taking us under the sea with Halle Bailey as Ariel, in its upcoming live-action version of The Little Mermaid!

With all of these remakes, it’s hard to not compare some of these live-action Disney characters to their original, animated version – especially the Disney princesses!

I mean, you know how women seem to have a reputation for being “catty” and competitive towards one another, unlike how men behave with other men, right?

So… here’s a comparison of the live-action Disney Princesses to their original, animated counterparts!


Lily James in Cinderella (2015) – who got people freaking out over her tiny waist.

Snow White

Lily Collins as Snow White in Mirror Mirror (2012), an adaptation of the classic fairy tale Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

Beauty and the Beast

Disney’s live-action reboot of Beauty and the Beast (2017), starring Emma Watson as Belle.

Princess Jasmine

And of course, the feisty Princess Jasmine, who is played by Naomi Scott in Disney’s remake of Aladdin (2019).

Sleeping Beauty

Elle Fanning as Princess Aurora – aka Sleeping Beauty – in Maleficent (2014).


Liu Yifei, also known as Crystal Liu, as Mulan in Disney’s upcoming live-action remake of Mulan, which is set to premiere in 2020.

And just for the record, I’m not sure if princesses fight. But I’d like to also think that they do.

Because princesses are women after all.
