A list of the best princess movies, including live action and animated princess films. This list includes princess movies for audiences of all ages. What are the best princess movies? Granted, most movies about princesses are animated and tend to be geared toward 2-5 year old girls. That said, there are some that even adults and *gasp* boys can enjoy. What are the best princess movies of all time? This is a list of all princess films, including the esteemed Disney Princess movies, as well as both old and new princess movies. Princess stories are the stuff of legend. Whether it be the royalty, the glamor, the regal behavior, or the beautiful dresses, princess movies have something for everyone.

For decades, princess movies have enthralled audiences worldwide, with tales of beautiful ladies and the handsome princes who fall in love with them. And while some princesses are the stereotypical "damsels in distress," (check out this list of seven Disney princesses that make bad role models for examples), other, more modern on-screen royals prove to be tougher - they solve their own dilemmas, thank-you-very-much. One good example: One of the best Disney princesses in recent times, Princess Merida from 'Brave,' was perfectly capable of handling everything on her own.

Not all of the greatest princess films are animated. Some, like 'Enchanted,' 'Ella Enchanted' and 'Ever After,' are set in modern times. And really, what list of the best princess movies would be complete without 1987's 'The Princess Bride,' one of the most rewatchable movies of all time?

Okay, princess movie fanatics: Start voting, and let's decide, once and for all, which princess film is the greatest ever!
