Top 10 Favourite Leading Ladies

My favourite leading ladies, both human and animal! Disney princesses and other.

1. Esmeralda – The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1996) (Ringeren i Notre Dame)

Voiced by Demi Moore/ Heidi Mollenhauer (Norsk: Benedicte Adrian)

I remember having a doll of her and also dressing up as her when i was younger. She is also a very unselfish and stong, young woman. I can realte to her now more than ever!

2.  Mulan – Mulan (1998)

Voiced by Ming-Na/ Lea Salonga (Norsk: Jannicke Kruse/ Sissel Heibek)

I watched the film in cinema when it first came out (I was dead scared alredy at the beginning, cause of the loud sound and Shan Yu, so I didn’t actually see it, but I saw it later on video). I always pretended I was her and got really into Chinese body art. That was fun! She is just awesome!

3. Ariel – The Little Mermaid (1989) (Den Lille Havfruen)

Voiced by Jodi Benson (Norsk: Sissel Kyrkjebø/ Guri Schanke, sequels)

When i was younger I wanted to have her voice and her long, red hair. I pretended to be her and also got a mermaid tail as well as throwing a mermaid themed party!

4. Nala – The Lion King (1994) (Løvenes Konge)

Voiced by Moira Kelly/ Laura Williams (Adult) (Norsk: Anne Aartun/ Hanne Dieserud, sequel)

Nala was always my favourite character (after Scar, of course). She is just amazing! I wanted to pretend I was her (until the sequel came, and I wanted to be Kiara!)

5. Belle – Beauty and the Beast (1991) (Skjønnheten og Udyret)

Voiced by Paige O’Hara (Norsk: Merethe Trøan)

I said when i was younger that I looked most like her of the princesses with brown hair and eyes and always liked stories and reading (still do!) I got a personalized book of Beauty and the Beast with me as “Beauty”.  That was great!

6. Aurora – Sleeping Beauty (1959) (Tornerose)

Voiced by: Mary Costa (Norsk: Liv Ragnhild Sømme Torneberg)

I have always thought that she has one of the best voices of the princesses. I also love her dress as well and the fact that she talks to all the animals in the forest 😀

7. Lady – Lady & the Tramp (1955) (Lady og Landstrykeren)

Voiced by Barbara Luddy/ Peggy Lee (Norsk: Anne Marit Jacobsen)

Wow, you didn’t see that one comming ;D I think she is amazing. She is so cute as a puppy and actually very beautiful as an adult dog. I love her voice as well, even if she actually doesn’t talk that much (well, she actually doesn’t talk at all!)

8. Megara – Hercules (1997) (Herkules)

Voiced by Susan Egan (Norsk: Iren Reppen/ Anita Hegerland)

Her voice is amazing and I love the song “I Won’t Say I’m in Love”! She also sacrifices alot as well.

9. Rapunzel (Rapunsel) – Tangled (2010) (To på Rømmen)

Voiced by Mandy Moore (Norsk: Marion Ravn)

I saw this film a few months ago and I loved it! I love how Rapunzel is like and her voice is amazing! She is also very brave, think about having so long hair (though she eventually gets it cut very short and her hair goes brown)

10. Jane – Tarzan (1999)

Voiced by Minnie Driver (Norsk: Laila Goody)

I just love her, I can actually sort of relate to her, and she has brown hair just like me! Her voice is amazing and how she is first time meeting Tarzan is hillarious, sweet and romantic.

1. Cruella De Vil- One Hundred and One Dalmatians (1960) (101 Dalmatinere – En Sjarmør i Pels)

Voiced by Betty Lou Gerson/ Susanne Blakeslee (Norsk: Eli Anne Linnestad)

Yes she is my favourite both cartoon and live-action. She scared me when I was little and I have had several nightmares about her! And the fact that she wants to kill the roor puppies to make a coat just for her is cruel, selfish, mean, illegal and just evil.

2. Maleficent (Malefika) – Sleeping Beauty (1959) (Tornerose)

Voice by Elanor Audley (Norsk: Merete Moen)

She is also scary. She has dark magic, a raven (Diablo) and she can turn in to a freaking DRAGON! I have also had nightmares about her.

3. Ursula – The Little Mermaid (1989) (Den Lille Havfruen)

Voiced by Pat Carroll (Norsk: Anne Grethe Preus)

My god! When i was little I had to hide behind my pillow when she appeared, but I have never had a nightmare about her. Still she is pretty scary!

Voiced by Lucille La Verne (Norsk: Eli Anne Linnestad)

5. Mother Gothel – Tangled (2010) (To på Rømmen)

Voiced by Donna Murphy (Norsk: Hilde Lyrån)

She is just very selfish and is only “protecting” Rapunzel just so she can be young forever. She is just very bad.

6. Lady Tremaine (Den Onde Stemoren) – Cinderella (1950) (Askepott)

Voiced by Elanor Audley (Norsk:?)

She is evil, alright. She is the reason why many people would not want a stepmother! She is mean to Cinderella and only wants the best for her “own” daughters.

7. Yzma – The Emperor’s New Groove (2000) (Keiserens Nye Stil: Et Kongerike For En Lama)

Voiced by Eartha Kitt (Norsk: Gisken Armand)

She is evil, selfish but also caring for her children. But I think she is just crazy!

9. The Queen of Hearts (Hjerterdronningen) – Alice in Wonderland (1951) (Alice i Eventyrland)

Voiced by Verna Felton (Norsk. Susanne Fuhr)

This face = Creeeepy! But she is actually very funny, but she is also very selfish and likes to make fun of everyone for no reason as well as punishing people for the smallest little details (by saying “off with their heads!”)

10. Morgana – The Little Mermaid II: Return to the Sea (2000) (Den lille Havfruen II: Havets Hemmelighet)

Voiced by Pat Carroll (Norsk: Frøydis Armand)

I think she is pretty creepy, but not as much as her sister! She is very much like her.

5. Professor Ratigan (Professor Rottenikken) – The Great Mouse Detective (1986) (Mesterdetektiven Basil Mus)

Voiced by Vincent Price (Norsk: Helge Jordal)

He was like my favourite when I was younger and still one of my favourites (obviously). He is evil, sly, mean and actually a bit funny as well as scary.

6. The Horned King – The Black Cauldron (1985) (Taran og Den Sorte Gryte)

Voiced by John Hurt (Norsk: Erik Hivju)

Aw, jes. he might be the most evil and scariest Disney villain ever. he freaks me out (I saw the film at an older age, I was a teen at lest). Thanks to the great voice acting of the legend John Hurt, The Horned King will give youngsters nightmares for years to come!

7. Jafar – Aladdin (1992)

Voiced by Jonathan Freeman (Norsk: Nils Ole Oftebro)

Yes, he is creepy. Yes, he gave me nightmares when I was litte. Yes, he still does. Why? I don’t know something about him is so creepy especially when he revealed that he was the old beggar man!

8. The Headless Horseman (Den Hodeløse Rytter)- The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr Toad (1949) from The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, Segment 2.

Voiced by Robert Axelrod

He is so scary and the fact that he probably killed Icabod and used his head the rest (or most) of his “life” is scary enough for me. Never realized it before I got older.
9. Clayton – Tarzan (1999)

Voiced by Brian Blessed (Norsk: Even Stormoen)

He is not so creepy or scary, though in the climax he is very scary and dangerous. I think he is a great villain cause he is selfish, sly mean and cruel to animals. He is also atractive, you can’t deny that!

10. Gaston – Beauty and the Beast (1991) (Skjønnheten og Udyret)

Voiced by Richard White (Norsk: Paul Åge Johanessen)

He might be handsome or something, but I think he is just selfish and jealous. He is just disgusting, you know.

11.Edgard Balthazar – The Aristocats (1970) (Aristokattene)

Voiced by Roddy Maude-Roxby (Norsk: Helge Reiss?)

He is so funny! But he is also mean, cruel and selfish. I like him (as much as I hate him).

12. Shan Yu – Mulan (1998)

Voiced by Miguel Ferrer (Norsk: Lasse Lindtner)
