Disney Princess is a famous Disney franchise and most of Disney's famous princesses are part of it, including Merida from Brave and Rapunzel from Tangled. But why are Elsa and Anna from Frozen kept separate and not included in the franchise?
Why are Frozen's Elsa and Anna excluded from the Disney Princesses line?
Being a Disney Princess is not just a matter of being a princess from a Disney property, it's a question of marketing. The collection of Disney Princesses is used together in other materials, things like direct-to-video releases, books, games, etc. There's an article on a Disney Wikia that has some more details, but that's the gist of it.
Frozen was such a success, that Anna and Elsa got their own marketing segment:
Disney Frozen. At some point, the popularity of the sisters may go down and one or both may get rolled into the "Princess" marketing machine.
My answer is in line with the previous. I just wanted to mention that
SuperCarlinBrothers have researched and made a video about this particular issue but in short, Frozen is just a powerhouse of a franchise on its own without the need for them to be Princesses.
There is a great chart at the 3:45 mark which shows that Frozen would account for 25% of the total ticket sales if added to the combined total of the other films. Most other princesses come in at around 8% - 15% each.
At the time they made that video, Frozen's merchandising sales were the 3rd largest behind Star Wars and Cars. They simply outclass the other princesses in terms of their value.
I think Anna would be more qualified to be an official Disney Princess than Elsa. One of the requirements I heard about was that they had to have an animal companion. While INITIALLY Sven was only Kristoff's companion, it can be argued that Sven became Anna's companion as well once Anna chose to be with Kristoff over Hans qualifying her as one. But still, she's not until Disney says she is since they're using the term as a title rather than a definition.
Elsa et sa sœur Anna font partie de la franchise des Princesses Disney.
