Disney’s princesses are some of the most iconic characters in the Disney franchise. For generations, characters like Ariel and Pocahontas have taken fans on amazing adventures, and the best part, their stories stand the test of time. That’s because not only are their films amazing, but these characters are relatable.

One has to wonder if a Disney princess was a sailor scout, which one would she be?

3/8 Moana – Sailor Neptune
Moana goes on an epic adventure when a terrible curse reaches her island. She then sets forth on a mission to seek out the demigod who started the curse and to set things right.

Rapunzel and Sailor Moon’s stories are quite similar. They are both princesses with tragic upbringings whose real identities are kept secret from them. In Serena’s case, she was reborn again on the planet Earth in order to escape the clashes of the evil Queen Beryl, with no memory of her past life on planet earth. Both characters also have healing powers. Rapunzel’s hair holds the power of a magic flower, while sailor moon’s Moon Crescent Wand returns monsters to their human forms.

Both Sailor Saturn and Auroa’s main storyline is their slumber, although Sailor Saturn’s story is a bit darker. She was isolated by the Silver Millennium and was in a deep slumber on the Planet Saturn. She was later awakened by the three special talismans after the Silver Millennium was destroyed.
