Your childhood dream of becoming a Disney princess might not have come true, but it turns out it probably was for the best.
As many of us know by now, a few of the princess stories Disney has sold audiences through the years were repurposed and distilled from much more gory tales. It wasn’t all sunshine and rainbows for the characters in The Little Mermaid, Pocahontas, Tangled, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Cinderella and The Princess and the Frog. Instead they faced heartbreak, death and happily never afters.
Yeah, you’ll shed a tear or two after watching the video above…but hey, the truth was bound to come out sooner or later, right?
