Part 2 of 2
And now back to the countdown of the Disney's finest heroes ... (click here for Part 1).
Don't think that these future kings take they're roles for granted. If anything, they have even more to prove.
After this fledgling Great Prince of the Forest reaches adulthood, he is face with such challenges as a thuggish rival for his fair Faline and, deadliest of all, the ultimate threat to his woodland kingdom: man.
The most proactive of Disney's fairy tale princes, this one doesn't just show up in the final reel to plant the kiss of life on his chosen maiden. When his princess succumbs to her endless sleep, he springs into action, facing off with a vicious fire-breathing dragon.
Made to think that he was responsible for his father's tragic death, this young cub retreats to a life of leisure - basically turning into the proverbial cowardly lion. Alas, when destiny calls, he finds the courage within to return home and face his demons ... and his past.
