I prefer Tiana, but at first I wasn’t too bothered by the fact that Lottie was the fandom favorite because other bubbly characters like Rapunzel were popular. But then Frozen came out and everyone fell over themselves to praise Elsa and hated Anna because Elsa told her not to marry someone she barely knew, even though Tiana successfully kept Lottie from doing the same and without ever shaming her. I haven’t been able to look at the Disney fandom the same way since.
Whenever I say I want another black princess, people bring up Tiana as if that is supposed to squash my argument. I love Tiana. I adore her. She makes me so happy but that doesn’t mean we can’t have another black princess. I want another Native American princess too.
I’m beyond happy with the Danielle Nicole bags Princess and the Frog is getting. I’m going to buy one of the bags and while I won’t use it all the time, I’m going to make sure I use it when I go out to a nice restaurant or something. It’s worth spending that much money so Disney will give me more Tiana merchandise.
