When I came across a post from Bill Wolff about Disney Princes, I thought that I should take a moment to watch it considering it seemed somewhat humorous. When I clicked on the link I was brought to an unfamiliar website called Kotaku.com.

I then found the video titled Real Life Disney Princes Would Be Horrible People by BuzzFeedVideo. When I first heard this title I personally thought that this video would have focused on the princes committing crimes. However after watching this video I see that my interpretation of this title was completely wrong.
I am sure most of you got a good chuckle at Disney scenes being transformed from an animation to real life. I however was fascinated by the amount of topics up for interpretation in this video. Take a minute and think back to the title of this video. Real Life Disney Princes Would Be Horrible People. Now my interpretation was more than likely much different then that of my readers. It was my interpretation of the title alone that set the tone of this remix for me, so in turn I had to start over and watch this video again. While watching it the second time I noticed that this entire remix/parody is someone’s interpretation on what Disney Princes would be like in reality.
Do not get me wrong, I have been in love with all things Disney for as long as I can remember. When I was little I thought it would be amazing to have a guy like in the movies. Someone who would fawn over me and treat me like, not to sound cliché, a princess. However, this remix/parody, as well as becoming an adult has made me change my mind. Honestly have you ever stopped to think about what it would be like to have someone stop mid sentence and begin singing a beautiful melody, as others join in, singing and dancing all around you?
Personally my thoughts on this are that maybe the princes themselves have their own interpretation on how they feel a lady or “princess” should be treated; that’s why they go above and beyond for them. At the same time their interpretation on how others fawn over them makes them so self-centered. In Prince Charming’s case, it amazes me that he has not fallen over due to the weight of his big head.
The video above titled If Disney Princes Went to College, by LeendaDProductions shows another interpretation of Disney Princes. In watching it I found similar characteristics that I found in the previous remix. For example, in my opinion, “Prince Charming” seems to be obsessed with his looks. What I find truly comical is that in both of these videos it seems that the creators view the princes as self-centered.
I feel that overall, there are so many different interpretations on Disney Princes and how they would act in the real world. Some of them may be that they are as perfect as they are portrayed in the movies while others will have those that are similar to these interpretations.
