At Disney’s 2011 D23 expo — we all know what that is, I won’t bother to explain — four REAL Disney princesses, Paige O’Hara (the voice of Belle), Lea Salonga (the voice of Mulan/Jasmine), Anika Noni Rose (the voice of Tiana) and Jodi Benson (the voice of Ariel), were given awards (?) and then sang “A Dream Is a Wish Your Heart Makes” together. Ahhh, GIRRRRLS! This is what we’ve been waiting for, ever since we were a child and took this song literally and were terrified after having a dream during which we went blind, because we thought that’s what our heart wanted! Let’s take a look at the for some reason poor-quality video, even though it is from Disney and you think they could’ve spent a few dollars on recording it pretty well or that they could have at least just gotten the sound directly from the soundboard or whatever and then mixed it into the video I mean I’m not trying to do anyone’s job here but what is going ON with this sound quality!
WHOAAA LADIES! Unfortunately, though, in this video it just seems like a bunch of old ladies singing a song. I wish they also did solo performances with songs from their characters, that would be a bit more exciting I think. WHAT? What did you say? What was that? SPEAK UP. OH, THEY DID? THEY DID DO SOLO PERFORMANCES OF SONGS FROM THEIR SPECIFIC MOVIES? OH, THAT’S GREAT!
Here is Ariel.
Here is Tiana.
Here’s our girl Mulan.
And finally, Belle.
Ohhh shiiiiiiiiiiiiit ladiesssssssssss! My fave is Mulan out of this bunch, which is a surprise. I wouldn’t have guessed that my fave would’ve been Mulan. Ariel seems to be trying a bit too hard and Belle looks too much like a Real Housewife and she doesn’t sound like Belle enough. Unfortunately I’m not really that familiar with Tiana. Not my generation. So she’s out. Mulan is the winner. But this video raises an important question: If you were a disney princess, which disney princess would YOU be? I’d be Belle, probably, because I’m a beauty and everyone else is SUCH a beast. Girl talk! (Via YBMW.)
