This study examines gender roles portrayed by princess characters in Disney movies, focusing on their agency. Thebehavior of 12 princess characters in 11 Disney movies are analyzed on the basis of the following: the amount of talkingtime, the amount of aggressive behavior, the amount of helping behavior, and the amount of time spent with the prince.The results suggest that princess characters differ in their agency and association with their prince. Although princessmovies portray some stereotypical representations of gender, the female roles have changed over time in the Disney Princessline.
