Cold Case

Bemoaning the state of the Disney princess is about as convincing as pretending you didn't love Tangled -- i.e., you are full of it, pal.

We can't blame you, though. Dorks that we are, we happily watched the Rapunzel retake, as well as The Princess and the Frog. While we do miss the traditional animation styles of Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty, we'll go ahead and hereby deem Tiana and Rapunzel totally legit Disney royalty. There's even a fair chance we'll sneakily attend Disney on Ice: Dare to Dream, an ice skating show that pulls the new ladies into the rink with Cinderelly herself.
