All hail Vanellope Von Schweetz, the latest addition to Disney’s pantheon of princesses… although her political status as ‘princess’ is complicated. Also, unlike her pulchritudinous colleagues, Vanellope is not pursuing a male figure to define herself by but rather seeking to come to terms with herself and her flaws that keep her outcast from both her…
