Sorting Disney Princesses into Hogwarts Houses (3/3)

Less than one month now until Raya and the Last Dragon gets released. While we wait for our new Princess, let's talk about some of our existing Disney Princesses. So far I’ve sorted about two thirds of them into Hogwarts houses (click here for part one and click here for part two). I’ve got five left, including our last honorary princess. So I won’t waste anymore time with further introduction and jump right in.

Aurora - Hufflepuff

Sleeping Beauty is a Puff like me. Even once finding out that her three weird aunt/fairies had been lying to her for sixteen years, she still demonstrated patience as she reserved herself to marrying an unknown prince. I also noted modesty as a defining trait, as she’d have rather lived in the forest as a peasant than marry someone her unknown parents had betrothed her to. Fortunately, it all worked out for her and Prince Phillip in the end anyway. In Disney World, you can meet her in Magic Kingdom.

Mulan - Slytherin

I debated between Gryffindor and Slytherin for Mulan. She definitely exhibited bravery and daring as she took her father’s place in the army. However, I felt like she was more defined by her ingenuity and cunning. These are very Slytherin traits. Also, she admitted that not all her intentions were necessarily selfless. As her ambition (another Slytherin trait) to prove herself led her, she definitely grew as a person. But I’d still consider her a Slytherin. She can be found at China in Epcot.

Jasmine - Gryffindor

I know I sorted Ariel into Gryffindor as well, but in many ways I think Jasmine would be the first Disney Princess to be a Gryffindor in the traditional sense. Throughout her adventures with Aladdin, she demonstrated bravery and daring at every turn. In addition, she was the first Disney Princess to directly fight against her villain. So with that in mind she’s a solid Gryffindor to me. You can meet Jasmine at Morocco in Epcot and in Adventureland at Magic Kingdom and Disneyland.

Pocahontas - Ravenclaw

When I first re-watched Pocahontas for this post, I thought I was going to put her in Gryffindor because of how bravely she protected John Smith and stood up to her father. However, as I watched the movie again, what stuck out to me was how she sought wisdom first before making any decisions. Should I trust these newcomers? Should I forge my own path? Should I defy my father? This soul searching reminded me more of Ravenclaw wisdom. This princess can be found at Animal Kingdom in Walt Disney World.

Vanellope - Slytherin

This mischievous little glitch was befriended by the Disney Princesses in Ralph Breaks the Internet, so she is our honorary Disney Princess this time. In the first movie, she was focused on her ambition (and excessively determined) to win a race. In the sequel, she was focused on a new ambition: Who was she outside the arcade? Her ambitiousness (and honestly her sneakiness) could only place her in Slytherin. You can find her with Ralph in Epcot at ImageWorks.

If you enjoyed these Hogwarts posts about the Disney Princesses, let me know which franchise I should sort next. Remember to also check out our previously sorted franchises: Team Arrow, Friends, Power Rangers 2017, Once Upon a Time, and the Avengers.
