Her dream is not to marry a prince, but to own her own restaurant. She works incredibly hard and wins the prince too! Rapunzel seems very similar to the princesses of Disney's Renaissance, but she turns the tides on the typical script by saving her lover. Merida is Disney/Pixar's newest princess and possibly the most daring. She is the only princess without a prince. Instead of finding her "one true love" she focuses on building up her relationship with her mother. Sexism in Disney Princesses "Simba has always had trouble wanting to be king." Jungle Book
