Why “Rejected” Princesses?

durene asked:

Why present these as rejected princesses, and not potential princesses? Many successful kids’ movies are sanitized versions of stories. I’d personally love to see the a Disney princess like Nzinga. She’s a real person, there is much documentation on her life, she is still revered by many people today, and there’s far more to her than someone who just sat on a servant, and later slit his throat. It would be nice for Disney to finally depict its first African, humanoid princess.
