10 Most Beloved Redhead Disney Characters

12. Anna (Unofficial)

Screen Shot 2019 11 26 at 3.16.46 PM.0.png

Height: 5’3”
Age: 18
Relationships: King Agnarr (father), Queen Iduna (mother), Elsa (sister), Hans (ex-fiancé), Kristoff (fiancé)
Ethnicity: Caucasian Norwegian
Powers and Abilities: None

Character Information: Anna is a princess of the fictional Norwegian kingdom of Arendelle (and ends up becoming queen in Frozen 2) and is one of the main stars of the ‘Frozen’ film franchise, which is the highest-grossing non-Marvel and non-Star Wars Disney franchise ever. She is a bubbly and lively princess who grew up playing with her sister, Elsa, but ultimately got hurt due to Elsa’s ice powers. Her entire journey throughout Frozen involves her trying to bring Elsa back to the kingdom and convincing her to stop the snowstorm that froze Arendelle. Along the way, Elsa met Kristoff (who would soon become her romantic interest) and the snowman named Olaf.

Fun fact: Anna isn’t an official Disney princess because the “Disney Princess” title is meant for marketing and franchising purposes. Considering that Frozen is already marketable on its own, Disney didn’t name Anna as an official Disney princess because Frozen is already a profitable franchise.

13. Elsa (Unofficial)


Height: 5’7”
Age: 21
Relationships: King Agnarr (father), Queen Iduna (mother), Anna (sister)
Ethnicity: Caucasian Norwegian
Powers and Abilities: Magical ability to create and control ice

Character Information: Elsa was crowned the queen of Arendelle during the first ‘Frozen’ movie but ended up ceding her crown to her sister in ‘Frozen 2.’ She is the eldest daughter of King Agnarr and Queen Iduna and was born with the power to create and control ice. It was because she could not control her powers that she alienated herself from her sister, which eventually caused her to alienate herself from her entire kingdom. However, Elsa learned to control her powers later on and ended up fixing her rift with Anna and the kingdom of Arendelle.

Fun fact: The reason why Elsa isn’t an official Disney princess is the same as why Anna isn’t an official Disney princess. Of course, there’s also the fact that Elsa was introduced as a queen and not as a princess.


How Tall Are the Frozen Characters? Anna, Elsa, Olaf, Kristoff, Sven & Others

14. Moana


Height: 7’6” (estimated)
Age: 16
Relationships: Chief Tui (father), Sina (mother)
Ethnicity: Polynesian
Powers and Abilities: Skilled sailor

Character Information: Moana is the first Polynesian Disney princess and the star of the titular movie ‘Moana,’ released in 2016. The movie revolves around Moana being chosen by the Ocean to save the world. This prompted her to go on an adventure and to look for the demigod Maui so that they could prevent the life-killing darkness from destroying Moana’s island. 

Fun fact: The reason why Moana’s height is listed at 7’6” is due to the fact that it was estimated based on the height of her rooster, Heihei. For some reason, Disney never corrected Moana’s height, and that means that people actually believe her to be as tall as an NBA center.

15. Vanellope von Schweetz (Adopted)

m87bfjcp 1920

Height: 2’6”
Age: 9 or 12
Relationships: Ralph (best friend)
Ethnicity: Caucasian
Powers and Abilities: Master racecar driver, glitching

Character Information: Vanellope is the co-star of the ‘Wreck-It Ralph’ movie that explores the story of retro arcade characters hopping from one game to another. She was considered a “glitch” in her own game when Ralph first met her. However, the truth was that Vanellope was the true main character of her video game franchise but was removed from the game by a jealous video game character.

Fun fact: Technically, Vanellope was never an official or an unofficial Disney princess. The only reason why she is a Disney princess is that in ‘Ralph Breaks the Internet’ (the sequel of ‘Wreck-It Ralph’), she found herself on the Disney website and met the official Disney princesses, who adopted her after finding out that she herself is a princess.

16. Raya (Unofficial)

Character Information: Raya is the titular hero of ‘Raya and the Last Dragon,’ which was released in 2021. She is the first Southeast Asian Disney princess, although in an unofficial capacity. Nevertheless, she still makes history because she is only one of two Disney movie stars of Asian heritage. ‘Raya and the Last Dragon’ tells the story of a post-apocalyptic world that ended up turning into a wasteland when a plague turned much of humanity into stone and when the dragons went extinct. However, when Raya met Sisu, the last surviving dragon, they went on a quest to restore the pieces of the orb that would help vanquish the plague from the world.
