She has cerebral palsy and uses a wheelchair. But she also has hidden disabilities — obsessive compulsive disorder and anxiety disorder. So Elsa, the queen whose hidden condition is dramatically revealed, feels like an ally.
There are a few characters who have disabilities like Dory (short term memory loss in Finding Nemo/Finding Dory), Quasimodo (titular hunchback in Hunchback of Notre Dame), or Dopey (mutism, dwarfism in Snow White and the Seven Dwarves).
Diagnosed with cerebral palsy at birth, Hannah Diviney, 23, is hoping that the Walt Disney Company will create a princess character with disabilities for all to see.
Elsa may not be the only person who suffers from mental illness, anxiety and depression, Anna might be too. Due to years of being isolated from her elder sister, she is prone to talking to paintings or to herself, hence why she is so desperate for love, as Prince Hans puts it.
Vanellope identifies with disability early on when she tells the other game characters that she has a "condition" known as "pixlexia." Vanellope's disability may be encoded as fantasy; however, she represents Disney's first foray into what Quayson terms "Disability as Normality" since she deals with real issues ...
Ariel, our beloved Disney princess can be diagnosed with Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).
The film is shot as a play within a play. The film centers on the lead actor in the play, Ray-Man (named by his parents after artist Man Ray), a young adult with Down syndrome. The film follows the personal struggles of the cast as they prepare for the play, working with the director, Dr. Stephen Snow.
18 years of age or older. Slender, athletic build with full range of motion and coordination (especially to music) Female performers must be between 4'11” and 5'8” — this will determine which character they can play.
Many fans wondered why Anna wasn't made a Disney Princess, considering she fits the bill: she's human, comes from royalty, is heroic, and even has an animal sidekick in Sven. However, Frozen 2 turned her into the queen after Elsa abdicated, so perhaps the studio always knew Anna wouldn't be a princess for long.
Moana. This animation film about an adventurous teenager has two characters with disabilities. Hei Hei the rooster has dyspraxia, a common disorder that affects movement and co-ordination and a learning disability.
Finding Dory, Pixar's most recent box office success, stars many characters with disabilities. Dory, the titular character, has short-term memory loss. Nemo has physical disabilities with his little fin, and Hank is an octopus that is missing a tentacle.
Disability becomes part of Nemo's personal history and social identity, visually marking him as a survivor. "Finding Nemo" proves to be an unconventional, transgressive representation of disability.
According to the Liverpool Echo, Elsa Frost was jailed for four-and-a-half months on Thursday after admitting criminal damage and sending abusive messages.
If Frozen was the story of Elsa's tentative first steps in exploring and accepting her genetic condition and deafness, Frozen 2 sees her dancing and singing into Deafhood, actualizing her Deaf identity, and embracing Deaf culture and ethnicity.
Although the sequel reveals how Elsa got her powers and offers insight into the mysterious death of her parents, Elsa does not get a girlfriend in the film.

Snow White is only 14 years old, making her the youngest. Jasmine, who is supposed to be 15, is the second youngest. Cinderella and Tiana are the oldest, both 19 years old.
The Princess is rated R by the MPAA for strong/bloody violence and some language.
Tiana. Tiana from The Princess and the Frog turns into a frig after she kisses a frog prince. She suffered from Zoophilia which is a sexual disorder involving attraction to animals or desires to have sexual contact with animals.
Despondent, Tiana wishes on the evening star for her dream to come true. She then meets Naveen in frog form who, believing her to be a princess, asks for a kiss to break Facilier's spell. Tiana reluctantly accepts after Naveen promises to finance her restaurant.
The Frog Prince story itself is mentioned several times in the film, being read to Princess Tiana as a child and inspiring the spoiled Prince Naveen (who has been transformed into a frog) to suggest Tiana kiss him to break his spell. However, the kiss fails, turning her into a frog as well.
Snow White can be classified as having Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. The Princess meets all eight of the criteria listed in the DSM-V to diagnose PTSD (See Appendix A). First, she directly experiences a traumatic event relating to a near death experience (Criterion A1).
Dory suffers from severe short-term memory loss, but a lot of what she goes through can be adapted to other contexts, such as the world, or ocean, of ADHD. Dory has trouble with multi-step directions, is easily distracted, and is very impulsive.
The answer: Beauty and the Beast's Belle. Belle is an independent thinker, was raised in a geeky household, and *loves *to read. Her dad loves to tinker and make inventions and growing up in a house like that she was bound to be geeky.
