Wait, Disney princesses ain't American? But, I thought we owned everything!
Nope, like much of American culture, the Disney princesses you know and love are borrowed from non-American countries. Many have their roots in European and Asian fairytales.
Luckily, to remind us of this, some awesome person on YouTube put together this video of what the princesses would sound like singing in their native languages.
Ariel sings "Part of Your World" in Danish, since "The Little Mermaid" was originally a Danish fairytale by Hans Christian Andersen. Then, Mulan sings in Chinese (Mandarin), Elsa from "Frozen" sings in Norwegian, Jasmine from "Aladdin" in Arabic and Rapunzel from "Tangled" in German.
BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE! By popular demand, YouTube user Movie Munchies made a Part 2.
You HAVE to hear Aurora from "Sleeping Beauty" sing "Once Upon a Dream" in French. Why do the French always sound so much more eloquent-er than us?
