Disney Princess fever has hit our house full-force. It’s all Princess all the time around here. Poor Hello Kitty has been cast aside for Big Chick’s new besties: Belle, Ariel, Jasmine, Snow White, and Cinderella. The Disney Princess movies are on heavy rotation here at The Little Hen House and it’s Princess dress-up central.
We’ve ditched the “Toddler Songs” CD in favor for “Disney Princesses: The Ultimate Song Collection.” I act like this is some huge aggravation, but internally? I am thrilled. I love singing along to all my childhood Disney favorites (I’m partial to Belle and Ariel), and it’s so cute to hear Big Chick singing along with me.
The Disney Princess revival happening in my life has got me wondering, “Who are the actors behind these animated characters?” Well my friends, I am about to reveal to you the faces behind some of the most famous Disney Princess characters of all time:
Cinderella played by Ilene Woods:
Aladdin played by Scott Weinger:
(Fun Fact: That’s DJ Tanner’s boyfriend from Full House!)
Belle played by Paige O’Hara:
Ariel played by Jodi Benson:
Aurora (aka: Sleeping Beauty) played by Mary Costa:
Gaston played by Richard White:
Jasmine sung by Lea Salonga :
Snow White played by Adriana Caselotti:
Tiana played by Anika Noni Rose:
Ursula the Sea Witch Pat Carroll:
Elmo played by Kevin Clash:
(Ok- I know that Elmo isn’t a Disney character, but OMG! That’s Elmo!)
Tell me: Were you surprised by any of these faces?
