: : how old do you think cinderella is. She looks 15 or 16 to me.
: She is probably around 16. Up until more recent Disney films, heroines were never much older than their sweet 16, as opposed to Pocohontas, Esmeralda, and Megara, who are all slightly older.
: They probably just didn't identify her age because she got married at the end of the movie, and a 16-year-old bride in a 1950s cartoon film would probably spark controversy.
But Ariel got married at 16, and her movie came out in 1989. Why would it be different for the 1950s?
