Disney Princesses Move Into a New Castle!
Just about every little girl or boy — we don’t judge — has pretended to be a Disney Princess at some point in their life. Some of us were demure and proper ladies like Aurora and Snow White, while others were bold and impulsive like Jasmine and Merida. Each princess has their own unique personality, signature traits that make their stories, and adventures, all their own. The Sorting Hat has picked the minds of nine iconic Disney beauties to answer the question you know has been haunting you all these years: Which House would the princesses be Sorted into on their first day at Hogwarts?
Belle – Ravenclaw
Books, books, books! This princess has a thirst for knowledge that cannot be quenched. Sure, at first, she was a bit suspicious of the Beast, but like all Ravenclaws, she chose to not judge the book by its cover; she dove into its pages to learn the truth. A bookworm from the word “go,” this lovely lady does Rowena Ravenclaw proud and — let’s face it — this lady rocks the Ravenclaw blue! (Be honest, everyone who watched Beauty and the Beast wanted her library, didn’t they?)
Ariel – Slytherin
All this little mermaid wanted was to live up on the land and snuggle with her charming prince. Even with her father, King Triton, and the crabby softshell Sebastian forbidding her from going up to the surface, this feisty redhead has one clear message: I do what I want! Deceit is definitely this girl’s forté, and she is willing to break all the rules, from making a deal with the devil, to lying about who she really is so she can get the man of her dreams. Slytherin welcomes you, Ariel, to their dank dungeons below the Black Lake — you should feel right at home!
Tiana – Hufflepuff
One thing this princess learned really quickly: shortcuts are no good. That, and never trust a slimy toad when he claims to be a wealthy prince in need of a kiss. All her life she looked up to her daddy, a hard-working man who knew that family and love were the most important things of all and busted her butt to achieve her dreams of owning a restaurant. (Hufflepuffs do love their food!) Bring some beignets to the castle, Tiana, and show those elves how it’s done!
Jasmine – Gryffindor
This princess of Agrabah could not be caged up. Unsettled with her cushy life, Jasmine wanted to experience the world outside the palace walls. She put on a disguise, scaled the wall, stole from a fruit merchant, nearly had her hand cut off, and ran off with a cute boy whose companions included a pet monkey and a flying carpet. I’d say she got the adventure she wanted. I don’t know about you, but flying around the world on an old rug with a guy you barely know is not for the faint-of-heart, and that is why this daring princess belongs in Gryffindor.
Rapunzel – Ravenclaw
When you’re locked up in a tower, with no one to talk to but your mother and a lizard, what do you do? Whatever you can to stay sane, that’s what! A true renaissance man — er, girl — Rapunzel has mastered many talents. Baking, painting, reading, dance, and papier mâché? Come on, this girl is a Ravenclaw through and through! Maybe she could teach us some of those sweet frying pan moves.
Sidenote: Her little chameleon friend, Pascal, was named after a 17th-century mathematician, physicist, inventor, and writer. Coincidence? I think not!
Elsa & Anna – Slytherin & Gryffindor
Two sisters, two opposing forces. Elsa just wants to be left alone, and Anna wants to live life to the fullest. The great power within Elsa is dangerous because she lacks control, and after lashing out at her sister and subjects, the ice queen runs away from her problems, leaving Arendelle to its doom. Daring Anna cannot be confined any longer and accepts a marriage proposal from a boy she just met. What is riskier than marrying a man you’ve never had a meal with? What if he picks his nose?! These very different girls definitely belong in very different Houses, but just like the students of Hogwarts, they work better together as a unified front.
Mulan – Slytherin
Another princess who just wants to live her life and not be forced to marry. You’d think these Disney parents would start to get the hint, right? She wants to make her father proud of her, and the perfect plan to achieve that is… to steal his armor, his horse, and go join the army where they would surely kill her if they found out she was female. Well, that’s gratitude for you. She achieved greatness through deception, loyalty to family, and a dash of treason. The perfect recipe for a Slytherin.
Cinderella – Hufflepuff
All Cinderella wanted was family and to be loved. Unfortunately, no matter how hard she worked or how much she tried, her wicked stepmother just wouldn’t accept her as her own. Even knowing that cold hard truth, Cinderella remained friendly and kind and continued to work like a slave for her stepmother and stepsisters. It’s also a pretty well-known fact that Hufflepuffs have an affinity to animals and for plants. Maybe that’s how she got mice, horses, and pumpkins to help her out all the time?
