The charm of Disney's animated movie princesses depends quite a bit on the voice behind the character. And often, though not always, artists modeled the look of the character on the voice actress. You probably know that Mulan's speaking voice came from actress Ming-Na Wen, who was also Dr. Jing-Mei Chen on the TV series E.R. at the time the movie came out -after all, Mulan looked just like her. But did you know Lea Salonga (left) provided the singing voice? Salonga was also the singing voice of Jasmine in Aladdin. See all the Disney princesses, from Snow White to Merida, and the women who gave them a voice at mental_floss.
