When people think about Disney, one of the first things that comes to mind is the princesses, with Disney being built upon the success of its various princesses, which have all become incredibly iconic in the world of pop culture.
Whether it is meeting them at the various Disney theme parks, dressing up as them for parties, or simply singing along to their songs, young children adore the princesses, which is one of the main reasons the company continues to push out princess movies.
While not every single Disney movie has been a blockbuster hit, the vast majority of them have been incredible successes, and within this article, we will rank the 10 highest-grossing Disney Princess movies in history.
10 The Little Mermaid (Box Office: $222,299,758)
This Disney princess movie might have taken place under the sea, but it did make a splash in this top 10 as the storyline of Ariel going from being a mermaid to a princess earning Disney $222,299,658 at the box office worldwide.
The Little Mermaid is one of the most enjoyable Disney movies of all time with a vibrant color scheme, tons of characters, some incredible songs, and one of the greatest villains in Disney history.
This Disney movie did great at the box office, but the fact it has continued to be a huge fan favorite amongst Disney fans, which is why the film continues to be watched years after it was created.
9 Cinderella (Box Office: $263,591,415)
Bringing in a worldwide box office of $263,591,415, Cinderella is one of the most successful Dinsey princess movies in history with the film thriving at the box office, which is no real surprise.
When you think about Disney's princesses. one of the first characters people think about is Cinderella, with the classic story of the princess going from rags to riches, losing a glass slipper at the ball with that being the only thing that the prince had to locate her.
With some of Disney's most iconic songs of all time within this film, the movie has reached classic status, with this being one of the most integral films in Disney's loaded catalogue of movies.
8 Mulan (Box Office: $303,500,000)
Mulan is unlike most Dinsey princess movies in the fact that it isn't really about love at all, with very little romance taking place in this film as Mulan looks to prove she can step up in her father's shoes in the war.
Mulan doesn't need the romantic storyline that many princess films, with the movie being packed with action as well as some fantastic songs and an amazing cast of side characters to beef up the film.
Despite the fact that the movie doesn't have a traditional princess storyline, the film did very well at the box office, earning $303,500,000 for the Disney company.
7 Pocahontas (Box Office: $346,079,773)
Pocahontas might not be the most talked-about Disney movie, but that doesn't mean that it wasn't a roaring success at the box office, with the movie bringing in $346,079,773 at the box office.
This was a fantastic movie that took a look into the spiritual side of things and the history of the Indians and the lives that they led as well as the challenges in order to protect the land that they lived on.
Unlike a lot of Disney princess movies, the story here wasn't about marriage, but instead, two people falling in love and coming together despite having totally opposite views at the start of their relationship.
6 Beauty and the Beast (Box Office: $424,967,620)
Beauty and the Beast is truly a tale as old as time, with this classic Disney princess movie always being relevant and popular amongst fans, with every new generation being shown this classic animated movie.
This is a true love story at its absolute core, with Belle falling in love with the Beast, despite his appearance, with the movie proving you should never judge a book by its cover.
With the movie being reinvented for a new audience with the live-action movie, which was just as successful, with Emma Watson taking the responsibility of playing the princess, Belle.
5 Aladdin (Box Office: $504,050,219)
To say a movie released in 1992 was able to earn $504,050,219 at the box office worldwide is incredibly impressive, but that is just one of many reasons why Aladdin is many peoples favorite Disney movie of all time.
The film is jam-packed with action and fast-paced songs, while at its core it is also an incredible romance movie with the story between Aladdin and Jasmine being kept apart due to their differences tackling the issue of class head-on.
The recent live-action remake featuring Will Smith might have done incredible numbers at the box office, but it is the original that people will always talk about the most.
4 Brave (Box Office: $538,788,207)
It might surprise a lot of people to see Brave rank this highly on the list, but the Scottish princess movie was incredibly popular at the box office, with the film earning $538,788,207 in total.
Disney's decision to make a princess movie focused on old-Scottish heritage is a decision that shocked many, but it worked wonders with the confident and brave Merida, breaking the typical stereotypes that Disney princesses are burdened with.
She may not look or act like many of the original princesses, but that is one of the drawing factors to the movie, with this feeling very different and unique to what people are usually subjected to.
3 Tangled (Box Office: $591, 794, 936)
The story of Tangled is one that is incredibly well known amongst people, although it typically goes by the name of Rapunzel when it comes to the classic fairytale book that this is based on.
The Disney movie version is one of the most popular of all time, with Mandy Moore doing an incredible job at voicing Rapunzel, bringing life to the princess which made her beloved by fans of the film.
With a fun romance storyline being blended with the complex relationship with Rapunzel's mother as well as a cat and mouse style adventure, Tangled became an instant hit, earning Disney $591,794,936 at the box office.
2 Moana (Box Office: $643, 331, 111)
Moana isn't your typical princess movie, with the titular character not having the classic love storyline with another boy, or having a wicked stepmother running over her, instead, Moana is determined to become independent and solve her villages problems.
Defying her father (In typical princess fashion), Moana heads out into the open waters and from that point on the adventure begins, with a fantastic mix of incredible music, vibrant colors, and a very funny, yet emotional storyline.
Adding the voice of the popular actor, Dwayne Johnson into the mix was an incredibly wise decision on Disney's behalf, and with a box office revenue of $643, 331, 111, it was clearly a major success.
1 Frozen (Box Office: $1,072,402,000)
It just seems nobody can quite let it go when it comes to Frozen, with the Disney princess movie not only being the highest-grossing princess film of all time, but it actually topped the charts as the highest-grossing animated movie ever made.
Whether Frozen will remain top of that icy mountain after the upcoming sequel, Frozen 2 is released remains to be seen, however, for now, Anna and Elsa's first adventures are certainly considered to be an overwhelming success by the Disney company.
With incredibly catchy songs, a heartwarming story, and incredibly quotable and loveable characters Frozen had everything you could ever want in an animated film, so it is not a surprise to see how big of a success it became.
