Far from it, actually. There’s science behind the choice, and we would’ve just chalked this up to a random “oh, blue’s a beautiful color” thing, and it seems to look so good on screen with animated characters like these Disney princesses. That, apparently, isn’t the case. Disney had this up its sleeve the entire time from Snow White to Elsa and beyond, and we never knew about it.
The science behind the color blue is that it promotes young feminism, an ability to seek the skies and reach out for hope. Individualism. Makes sense when blue does resemble the sky, but even more so, it’s about standing out on your own especially since blue typically is a color we’d associate with boys. Not here.
When was the last time you saw a Disney princess wearing PINK?? Uuuuh, like…never.
We can say that it’s a theory all we want, but it was nevertheless confirmed by Disney Studios. This is why we saw even Jasmine wearing blue, and even Ariel wearing blue. Sure, Belle of BEAUTY AND THE BEAST wore a yellow dress, but only after falling in love with the furry fellow, and even then we still recognize Belle as a blue belle of inspiration.
It makes sense: Disney’s all about promoting the power of young ladies, providing role models. Think of Elsa of FROZEN, for crying out loud! Blue’s about being bigger than life, about not falling into a mold or a box, and about coming out as something unique.
Disney princesses aren’t just proper ladies — they’re rebellious icons.
