The best princess movies on Netflix and Disney +

Princesses are usually a recurring theme in childhood, in adolescence. From cartoons to birthday parties and costumes. And, of course, on television: in the series and in the princess movies. Beyond all the Disney princesses, which we do not include all on this list, animation or not, there are many that we can see on the different streaming platforms and we collect some of the best if you like the theme and want to spend hours on it .

Star wars

Although it may seem strange or an error that the Star Wars saga appears on this list, it is not. Leia Organa is one of the first characters we saw in the first movie of all, the first movie in the 1977 saga. And Leia Organa is a princess. Princess of Alderaan in addition to Mimebro of the Imperial Senate, diplomat or spy of the Rebel Alliance. But Star Wars introduced us to a princess who was running away scared of a sinister guy, Darth vader, and awaiting rescue. Then it turned out that she would not only rescue herself but would help rescue others. So Star Wars can also be an option if you are looking for princess movies but with a different, galactic, fighter and rebel air.

It is also a new hope, a sort of galactic princess tale where Luke and the rebels must rescue her and destroy the Death Star. Although Leia Organa will do her part and be able to cope with everything that crosses her path not only in this movie but in others, from giant slugs to army soldiers.

The engaged princess

If we had to keep one of all the princess movies, it would probably be The Princess Bride. And luckily, we can see it again as many times as we want on HBO. He arrived in the late eighties and left us with mythical phrases that we have all heard before. We know that “I am Iñigo Montoya, you killed my father, prepare to die ”and we are conquered by a fairy tale in which there is no shortage of fights that we enjoyed thirty years ago.

The Princess Bride is a medieval tale, a fairy tale in which Westley will return home to marry Buttercup, to whom he has sworn full love. But to reach that promised love you will have to face all kinds of enemies. For her part, Buttercup will have to endure an unbearable Prince Humperdinck who intends to marry her although his heart remains Westley’s. A fantasy story where the plot, apparently and at great lengths, seems easy and simple to us. But we all know that the 1987 movie is magnificent from start to finish. Also, there’s no shortage of great soundtrack with Mark Knopfler (Dire Straits) as the protagonist and it was nominated for an Oscar for best original song.

Snow White

Most classic movies have their non-animation version and Julia Roberts It gives life to one of the main villains of that story by the Grimm brothers that we all know by heart and that we have heard once but here it is narrated from a different point of view: that of the stepmother. Leaving aside the classic princesses as we know them in the Disney movie, the story is shown here from the point of view of the stepmother, Julia Roberts. Blanacnieves wants to claim the throne that he believes belongs to him and he will do so with the help of the seven famous dwarfs. In addition, the young Snow White wants to conquer a prince with whom the stepmother intends to marry. The same old tale with a new air in a funny comedy directed by Tarsem Sing.

Far from being the usual drama and the phrases that we all know, the little mirror, a fantasy and love comedy where they are the protagonists. Others on this list have been widely criticized for not straying from the script and original story, such as Aladdin. In this case the opposite occurs: a large part of the public does not like this free interpretation of the usual story. But you can watch it on Netflix to review for yourself.

Princess protection program

Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato They star in the Princess Protection Program, another of the classic teen comedies you can watch on Disney Plus. Although, this time, with two actresses known by the youngest, two idols from the Disney channel for years. A youth comedy in which an ordinary teenager will meet a South American princess from the country of Costa Luna and they will coexist to face day to day in a comedy in which there are also enemies and villains but, above all, a fun change of scenery in which both will have to survive.

Cinderella

Cinderella’s story is known to everyone and little or nothing changes in the real version and without cartoons Although it is far from being the best adaptation of a Disney movie and its only notable component is the costumes that we will be seeing in almost two hours. She is the protagonist, a happy girl whose life changes when her mother dies and her father meets another woman, the stepmother (Cate Blanchett) and her daughters. They will make life impossible for him in the family home and this abuse will be accentuated when his father dies.

So much so that she will stop being She to become Cinderella. But the young woman will not give up and will be able to maintain the kindness, kindness and courage that characterized her from a very young age. The story is the same as always and we simply changed the cartoons for flesh and blood people. Habitually crossed out as corny and quite conventional Cinderella’s is not one of the best adaptations available on Disney Plus with princesses as protagonists but you can give it a try.

Beauty and the Beast

Of all the adapted versions of Disney princesses (which are not a few), Beauty and the Beast is probably the most applauded or one of the best princess movies you can see on the Disney streaming platform. Launched in 2017 and starring Emma Watson, Dan Stevens and Luke Evans, the live-action adaptation garnered several Oscar and BAFTA Award nominations in addition to critical acclaim. If you only want to see one of the remakes, this is one of the best. It is faithful to the original, without deviating but maintaining the essence that we seek for such a film.

The story is the same as always even if this is a remake: Bella is a smart young woman who dreams of a world like that of her books and runs away from an unbearable Gastón who dreams of her becoming his beloved. But Bella’s life stops being relaxing and stops consisting of walks around her city when her father is imprisoned in the castle of a Beast. To save him, Bella will trade for him and discover that every corner of the castle is full of secrets, magic and good friends. A Disney classic that does not disappoint in its adapted version and with a wardrobe that will captivate us in addition to that soundtrack that we know by heart and that magical spirit that has been contagious since it was released in 1991.

Aladdin

We have little to say about one of the best Disney movies ever, Aladdin. His ‘real’ version maintains the essence of the original, without discrediting it. Get out of trouble without spoiling the movie that was released more than twenty years ago. Although not everyone convinces and it is difficult to live up to a title with millions of fans around the world who grew up with the genius.

The funny moments of the genie of the lamp (here played by Will Smith) are kept but also that complicated love story between Jasmine (Naomi Scott) and Aladdin (Mena Massoud) It is not one of the best princess movies that you will see if you are looking for something new, original, something different that will surprise you. There is nothing new in the updated version instead, she remains faithful to the usual with a rebellious Jasmine who is not content to go with any prince she does not want just to fulfill the imposed tradition. Of course, there is no lack of magic rugs, an unruly and adorable Abú and the usual songs.

Grace of Monaco

Of royal princesses, of history. Grake Kelly became princess of Monaco having already won an Oscar and leaving us some of the best films in the history of cinema such as The indiscreet window or Catch a thief. But at 26 the actress became a princess. Not from stories, real. Princess of Monaco after marry prince Raniero III, with whom he had three children: Carolina, Alberto and Estefania. But Grace Kelly’s life was intense from start to finish, she gave up a promising career (with eleven movies starring) to become the image of a country that was far from home. And that reflects Grace of Monaco.

It is not a documentary with real scenes (although you can see some on the same platform) but from a fictional movie starring Nicole Kidman, Tim Roth or Paz Vega that they tell us Grace Kelly’s story in the midst of economic crisis from Monaco and France. A crisis where “Princess Grace of Monaco” was especially involved. But beyond the social and political drama, Grace de Monaco seeks to reflect the personal life of the princess, her dedication to children or the love of a people increasingly devoted to her.

Although Nicole Kidman is little or nothing like Grace Kelly and the film abuses her continuous close-ups, it can be an option if you are looking for a real case or get closer to the story of a princess who was an icon for everyone.

Like Grace Kelly, Diana was another royal princess who was endorsed by the people to the end, who died young and who tried to flee a checkered life where she was not happy.

Diana’s is a drama and one more love story that of love. It is, as we say, the love story and secret relationship with the surgeon that lasted more than a year but also the new illusion for the Egyptian millionaire Al-Fayed with whom he would die in a car accident in Paris while escaping from the paparazzi.

A life full of lights and shadows that seeks to be reflected in this film that more than a good tribute to her life presents it to us as a kind of drama based on clippings and magazines from the heart. Even so, it is included in this list if you are looking for “royal princesses” who were there, who were part of the history of a country.
