Since the premiere of Snow White in 1937, Disney’s princess franchise has exploded into a global phenomenon. But no one leading lady reigns supreme. As the above map from the website decluttr shows, America’s most popular Disney princesses vary state to state.
Using data from Google, decluttr identified the most-searched-for princesses in all 50 states. Elsa from Frozen (2013) was the most popular, taking the top spot in eight states. She’s followed by Pocahontas who’s the favorite princess in seven states, including her home of Virginia.
Newcomer Moana (2016) also makes a few appearances. Though the Polynesian princess lost Hawaii to Mulan, she did claim Alaska a few thousand miles to the north. Belle, who returned to the big screen this month for the live-action remake of Beauty and the Beast, is the most beloved princess in six states. Considering her latest movie has already broken records, Belle's popularity won't likely fade anytime soon.
