Official Disney Princess: Belle
They are some pretty juicy Disney princess secrets that we never knew growing up. Aurora only has 18 lines total in Sleeping Beauty, "Part of Your World" was almost cut from The Little Mermaid, and Belle's personality was inspired by a character from Little Women.

As of 2020, there are 12 official Disney princesses — read on to see who is the real deal, plus ten other awesome ladies we think are worthy of the title as well.
