Disney films do a great job of pulling at our heartstrings and filling us with joy. There are those classic films such as Beauty and the Beast and The Little Mermaid, as well as newer movies like Tangled that certainly do that. Needless to say, Disney has perfected the formula of the Disney princess and their hottie love interests.
For this list, we included both men and women because we didn’t want to leave anyone out. From a hunky guy who was born from two Greek gods to a Native American beauty, these 10 characters are bound to make you feel things. Sure, the cartoons are just that – cartoons, and their body proportions are distorted and exaggerated, but let’s just daydream for a bit, shall we?
Take a moment to think about your favorite Disney character and then check to see if they are included on our sexy list here! Are you more of a damsel in distress kind of person, or do you prefer someone who is more independent and fights for themselves? What about smarts or comedic relief? We have it all here, as well as a variety of looks and different kinds of sexiness to sate your appetite. Without further ado, get reading and maybe put on a Disney flick for tonight’s entertainment.
Belle was a bookworm, but there was something super sexy about her wit and cleverness. Even before she transformed into a gorgeous Disney princess with that lovely yellow ball gown, she was already fabulous. We definitely approve of her being the “beauty” in Beauty and the Beast. What really makes Belle a complete turn-on for us is that she is a woman that could actually exist in real life. She is independent and strong, but she also has that vulnerability and coy girliness that makes her appeal incredible. We also breathed a sigh of relief to finally have a Disney princess that wasn’t blonde.
Next on our list is another breath of fresh air, as far as Disney is concerned. Pocahontas was a Native American heroine who fell in love with an English explorer, John Smith (who was also a very sexy character.) The defining moment for Pocahontas probably came when she sang Colors of the Wind. This kind and gentle soul was also a warrior princess, and with her tribal tattoos and simple mini-dress, we were so in love. When she defended John Smith just as her father was about to kill him, we cried our eyes out. Bonus points for Pocahontas’ animal friends!
8. Princess Ariel
We first saw Princess Ariel back in 1989, but she is still one of the hottest Disney Princesses to date. We mean, come on, she donned a seashell bikini top! Ariel was supposedly only 16 years old in the film, but whatever; she had the body of a goddess and her voice was that of an angel. Ariel was the youngest of King Triton’s daughters, and she was also the most fun. She is the perfect match for Prince Eric, and when the two of them fall in love, we just squealed with delight. Ariel was cute and sassy, but she was also extremely sexy…was she really supposed to be just 16?
French Roma gypsy girl Esmeralda steals the Hunchback’s heart and our as well. She has that mysterious and free-spirited allure that attracts us at first glance. The more we get to know her, the more we like her. Esmeralda walks around barefoot with gold-plated jewelry, a low-cut peasant top, and a musical tambourine. She has the exotic intrigue that makes her a hot commodity for adults, but she is carefree enough to have the kids love her. Esmeralda’s smoldering green eyes and her full lips are just two of the attributes that earned her the #3 spot on our list.
Sassy, sarcastic, and super sexy is Megara from Disney’s 1997 film Hercules. First of all, can we just say that she has hips that would make even Shakira jealous?! Meg is also trying so hard not to be the damsel in distress, but we don’t even mind that she falls into the classic fairytale trope. She is the best match for hottie Hercules, and when she sings “I Won’t Say I’m in Love,” we are just thinking that we are head-over-heels in love. Meg also has a sexy-cool voice that is both seductive and comedic. She does a great job of being a sassy sidekick to our main man Hercules.
5. Princess Jasmine
Well, duh! Princess Jasmine has a pet tiger, she’s the daughter of a sultan, and she wears a crop top that hangs off of her shoulders. Of course Princess Jasmine is one of the hottest Disney characters that awakened our sexual spirit animal. Jasmine is also a fiery and independent spirit, but she has a heart of gold and even tries to steal some fruit for a beggar boy. Like many Disney princesses, Jasmine has a lovely melodic voice and her long black hair hangs perfectly down her back or blows beautifully in the breeze as she rides on Aladdin’s magic carpet.
4. Flynn Rider
The hunky hubby of Princess Rapunzel, Flynn Rider is a more recent Disney character, and the CGI magic of the film Tangled allowed us to get up close and personal with him. Flynn has those iconic boyish good looks and enough charm to keep him going for days. He can come off as a bit arrogant and full of himself, but it turns out he is quite a sweetheart and he provides some nice comic relief when he needs to. Plus, he is smoldering and a true hero, helping Rapunzel get to safety and marry her prince charming. We also love that he’s a bad boy turned good.
3. Li Shang
He’ll make a man out of you, or at least a superfan. Li Shang was the tough-guy warrior who got Mulan hot and bothered as she tried to pass for a dude. Li Shang was the General of the Chinese Army and he was the hottest fighter of them all. Shang tends to be a bit high-strung, you know, since he is responsible for the entire clan of Chinese soldiers. Yet by the end of the movie, Shang finds out about Mulan’s true identity and the two just seem like a match made in Heaven. We also love when we get to see Shang shirtless!
The son of a Greek god is bound to be downright gorgeous, and Hercules is definitely that! After some hindering from Hades, Hercules trains to become the hero he was always meant to become. Possessing boyish good looks and superhuman strength, he is just what a girl wants in a man. Hercules is a blue-eyed, super-buff, and he can totally rock mandals. Whether he is in his godly form or his human form, Hercules dominates as a Greek boy toy. Hercules also gets special mention because he pairs up perfectly with another hottie on our list.
If it is wrong to be attracted to a half-naked animated guy who was raised by apes, then we don’t want to be right. Tarzan may not be able to use complete sentences but we really don’t care. His long brown hair, chiseled body, and tiny loincloth turn us on like nobody else. It almost seems unfair to have him on this list, because what kind of guy could compare with the rough and tough hotness of a buff guy in a loincloth? Oh well, Tarzan makes the list as the highest-ranked Disney male character.
