I just saw the trailer for Wish, looks like a good movie, I'm looking forward to seeing seeing it, but after the trailer I scrolled down to a comment about Disney princesses and it got me thinking, has there ever been a Disney movie focused on a prince as the main character, and I don't mean characters like Aladdin who marries a princess, I mean a strait up prince born protagonist,(Simba doesn't count), maybe there was and I missed it, anyway what are your thoughts?

Does Jack Skellington count? He is the Pumpkin King, after all
That didn't even cross my mind, but yeah, it would make sense, even if they did kind of skip the prince part of it.
Beauty and the Beast.
That one depends really of who you see as the main character, Beast or Belle, from my perspective, it would be Belle, but it could be interpreted (I probably spelled that wrong) as Beast too, it's all a matter of perspective really.
And Hercules.
Hercules is definitely one, but I can't help feeling like there should be more than those 3.

That place. The place with the thing.

A film can have more than one main character; the movie is called "Beauty and the Beast", not "Beauty".

I’ll probably vote Tarzan, but only because the qualifications for being a Disney Princess are quite loose. Pocahontas and Mulan aren’t princesses, but that seemed to be given over as more of an honorary role (or the whole “Indian Princess” stereotype in Pocahontas’ case, so maybe not the best example). Tarzan is the adopted son of the leader of gorillas, so I’d say he’s akin to one.

A bit off topic, but I think it's funny that the films in question (Hercules, Lion King, Beauty and the Beast) are my favourite Disney films. Hercules in particular is incredibly underappreciated, I feel.

How come Simba doesn’t count?
You have a point, and this was a month ago so I don't even remember why I said (typed) that, oh well, just forget what I said (typed) about that then.

Your right, Tarzan does count, I completely forgot about him and that his parents where the leaders.

Same.
