Modern Disney princesses are bold, brave, spirited, and fight for the best way to change their world. One talented teen actress that embodies all of these characteristics and more is actress, producer, entrepreneur, Marsai Martin. Marsai Martin proves that she is the ultimate fairytale princess in Elle Magazine’s Ultimate Princess Celebration Series.
Disney Princes Style posted on their official Instagram about the talented 17-year-old actress, saying, “Brave, hardworking, determined, unwavering – just a few qualities @MarsaiMartin and @JaneFonda have in common with our favorite heroines.”
The post continued, “As part of our Ultimate Princess Celebration, @ELLEUSA is honoring 14 real-life heroes and heroines who embody the spirit of Disney’s beloved Princess characters. Marsai sees her own hardworking and determined nature reflected in The Princess and the Frog’s #Tiana.”
Martin tells the magazine that she undeniably sees her own hardworking and determined nature reflected in Disney’s The Princess and the Frog’s Tiana.
“Everything was falling down on her, and she worked her way back up on her own terms,” she said to Juliana Ukiomogbe in her interview with the popular fashion outlet. “That’s something that I can totally relate to. In my industry, you will hear a lot of ‘no.’ So you gotta find your ‘yes’ and show people that whatever you have in your dreams can become a reality. That’s what we’re doing right now.”
Styled by Bryon Javar, the teen is impeccably dressed to impress as she channels her inner Tiana.
If you are a Princess and The Frog/Tiana fan just like Martin, rejoice! The story of Princess Tiana will continue. The iconic princess will make her move from the bayou to the royal court in a new series slated to debut on Disney+ in 2023.
According to the Disney fandom page, in the series, Tiana sets off for a grand new adventure as the newly crowned Princess of Maldonia, but a calling to her New Orleans past isn’t far behind.
We cannot wait and we know that Marsai Martin shares the sentiment.
