Disney movies are known for their heroes and villains. And let’s admit it- we want to be their best friends! There are so many underrated characters in Disney movies that deserve recognition, whether they are Princesses or dragons!
Here are the top 10 Disney characters that would make a great best friend!
1. Mushu- Mulan
One of the best things in Mulan (1998) was Mushu. Who wouldn’t want a dragon feeding them breakfast? (Especially when the porridge has a smiley face.) Mushu is that one friend who always cheers you on even on crazy adventures (like saving China). And we all need a best friend like that! He will be greatly missed in the upcoming live-action Mulan remake (but we are also excited about the new movie for other reasons!).
2. Edna Mode- The Incredibles
“Dahling” we all need an Edna in our life. Who else would hit us with a newspaper and remind us that we’re our own person? Edna’s sarcastic remarks and fashion tips are a plus. Having Edna as a best friend would always remind you to be a boss lady!
3. Nani Pelekai- Lilo & Stitch
We all need a big sister! Nani is someone we all aspire to be– hardworking, caring and relatable. Whenever there is trouble, we can count on Nani to be right there next to us. Also, who else would we talk to about surfers!
4. Barley Lightfoot- Onward
Now here’s a Disney best friend! Everybody needs a friend that makes you laugh till you cry. Barley is there to drive you to the end of the world while blasting your favorite songs. He is also right there next to you to encourage you to never give up!
5. Honey Lemon- Big Hero 6
We all need an extroverted best friend, and Honey Lemon is that person. She is optimistic, sweet and brightens up the room with her energy. Honey is the type of friend to put herself in danger just to save you. With a bright personality and constant selfies, Honey is sure to make a great best friend!
6. Charlotte “Lottie” La Bouff- The Princess and the Frog
Despite her social status and wealth, Charlotte is a loving character to all! With her high-energy personality and cheerful voice, it is easy to want to be her friend. She is someone who will stand on the sidelines and cheer you on till her voice is hoarse. She is not afraid to show her love and appreciation towards you. Now that’s a best friend.
7. Dory- Finding Nemo
As a wise a quirky blue fish once said, “just keep swimming.” Dory is always there to keep you optimistic. No matter what is happening, Dory will always be by your side. She will make it her mission to help you out and put a smile on your face.
8. Olaf- Frozen
We all need an Olaf! Especially if we love warm hugs! He is that friend who will encourage you to dance like no one is watching and who will be next to you when you suffer a heartbreak. There will never be a dull moment with Olaf as your best friend.
9. Princess Merida of DunBroch- Brave
Adventurous and caring, Merida is a feminist princess that encourages you to be independent! She reminds you to be your own person and to avoid stereotypes. She will remind you that you are perfect just the way you are!
10. Mia Thermopolis- The Princess Diaries
Strong and independent, Mia is the best friend you need! Despite her transition into a princess, Mia has stayed true to herself. She has also stayed loyal to her friends. Mia is the type of friend to listen to your issues and always have a solution. She is someone you can always count on for serious discussions and laughter!
