The Disney Prince Book Tag

Allison Well (Original Post Linkcreated the original tag and it looked interesting so here I am. There are so many choices I could give for these questions, it's hard to narrow it down. This whole tag was a lot of fun and I'm grateful to Allison Well for creating it. 

PRINCE FLORIAN – A Character Who Stumbles Into Things

Mulder (Xfiles)

(Book Choice) 
Cat (Charmed Life by Diana Wynne Jones)

PRINCE CHARMING – A Character Who Looks Past The Exterior Of Those Around Him.

Max (Penelope 2006) There are so many reasons why I love this movie but one thing I appreciated was the fact that Max didn't save Penelope. They both saved themselves even though Max was very inspired by Penelope.

(Book Choice)
George Cubbins (Lockwood and Co by Jonathan Stroud) There's a whole point made in the 'Empty Grave' book about George not caring about the physical appearances of others.

One criticism, did Prince Charming ever look past the exterior of those around him? because I thought he forgot what the charmed Cinderella looked like and simply had some sort of weird foot fetish.

PRINCE PHILLIP – A Character Who Fights For Those He Cares About

Mr. Right (Mr. Right 2015)

(Book Choice)
Kaz Brekker (Six of Crows) (Despite what he admits to himself)

PRINCE ERIC – A Character Who Fulfills The “Dreamy Soft Boy” Trope.

Ben Solo

He would be understanding, gentle and tall.

(Book Choice)
Levi (Fangirl) I liked his and Cath's dynamic in the book. 
Or Howl (Howl's Moving Castle) his heart was mentioned as being soft a couple of times.

I'm going to be perfectly honest, the combination of 'Dreamy' and 'Soft Boy' threw me a little. Most of the characters I consider to be soft boys aren't necessarily dreamy.

THE BEAST – A Beastly Character Who Is Redeemed

Daniel (Ready or Not 2019) 
Adam Brody is amazing and I liked Daniel early on, but I think he qualifies as a beastly character who gets redeemed. I'm still not over him.

(Book Choice)
Count Olaf (Series of Unfortunate Events) Okay hear me out, Count Olaf wasn't redeemed but he did have a moment of redemption.

ALADDIN – A Character Who Assumes A False Identity.

Sherlock Holmes (Sherlock Holmes 2009) 

(Book Choice)
The Scarlett Pimpernel. He used multiple disguises to rescue the French aristocracy during the French Revolution (in the book) 

JOHN SMITH – A Character Who Loves To Explore.

The Doctor (Doctor Who)  

I couldn't help myself, this was the reason I wanted to do this tag.

(Book Choice)
Dustfinger (InkHeart) The main point with Dustfinger was that he wanted to go home, but it's mentioned in the book that he lived with the traveling circus of sorts for a good portion of time.

LI SHANG – A  Character Who Is A Tough, Military Leader.

Aragorn (Lord of the Rings)

(Book Choice)
Gale (The Hunger Games Books)

FLYNN RYDER –  A Character Who Is A Scoundrel With A Heart Of Gold.

Gwaine (Merlin) I'm still not over him. Honestly let's just assume that I'm not over most of the (movie/tv) guys I've mentioned. Ben Solo, Daniel, Gwaine, the Doctor, Billy.

(Book Choice)
Peaceable Drummond Sherwood (The Sherwood Ring by Elizabeth Marie Pope) He was such a fun character who was ever the gentleman and clever red-coat captain.

PRINCE NAVEEN –  A Character Who Undergoes A Transformation.

Billy Hargrove (Stranger Things) I'm still not over him either.

(Book Choice)
Jacob (City of Ghosts by Victoria Schwab) Does being a ghost count as a transformation?

KRISTOFF –   A Character Who Is A Down-To-Earth Hero.

Luke Danes (Gilmore Girls)

(Book Choice)
Atticus Finch (To Kill A Mockingbird) We're going to ignore 'Go Set a Watchman'
Or the dad character in 'Something Wicked This Way Comes' by Ray Bradbury

EMPEROR KUZCO – A Character Who’s Obnoxious But Still Lovable.

Jean Ralphio (Parks and Recreation)

(Book Choice)
Kips (Lockwood and Co) I disliked Kips at first but I was tricked into liking him later on.


  1. Superb choices and taste! Seeing Luke on here just made me happy. The guy deserves recognition. And Daniel, and Ben, and well everyone! XD
    Anyway loved this!

    1. Thanks! Same, he just deserved the spot. They're both such good characters! I thought you'd have fun with it XD

  2. Hey Elizabeth! Thanks so much for participating in the Disney Prince Tag. It was so fun to read your answers. Really love your spin on including book AND movie options! Dr. Who was such a perfect choice for a character who loves to explore!

    1. Hi! Thanks so much for creating this tag and for letting me use it. So glad you liked it! He really is, I couldn't pass up on the irony of choosing him.
