How about

We petition that Kidagahkash Nedakh be turned into an official princess?? 

I mean, let’s talk about Kidagakash, AKA Kida for a minute here. 

She’s got all the makings of a Disney Princess.

1. She’s royal blood. She’s the princess of the lost city of Atlantis. 

2. She lost her mother when she was baby. 

Unlike most Disney Princesses, she watched her mother as she was taken and essentially killed, along with most of her society. 

3. She loses her father, too.

Who is also played by Lenard fucking Nemoy, okay?

But here’s some other, unconventional stuff that makes Kida amazing and a perfect edition to the current line up. 

This girl can KICK. ASS.

She doesn’t take being spoken to rudely AT ALL.

When some fuckers try to get the drop on her- they grab her by the hair and yank her out of the water- she doesn’t fucking take that shit, she kicks several of their fucking asses, until the dagger she holds is eventually shot out of her hand

Kida also is a martyr, accepting her fate, the same one that took her mother.

She does this without question, once the Crystal spoke to her and possessed her. In addition to this, another thing that makes her amazing is that, despite being a total bad-ass, she still needed to be rescued; but it was at her own choice. She knew that she was going to be taken, and she knew that the protagonist and love interest Milo Thatch would save her. She trusted and had faith in him and the others around him, despite the fact that Milo is basically a giant dingus. Which leads me to talk about her prince, so to say, Milo Thatch. 

In fact, she is so sure of this, that she even tells him so.

Let’s talk about Milo for a minute. 

He’s a big part of her, because he isn’t a prince. He’s not pretty, or handsome, or overly masculine, or anything like that. In fact, as far as Disney Love Interests go, he’s basically a bottom tier. He’s a beta male and she is the one in charge, but he steps up as her other half, brings her back to her people so that she can save them. 

She is also the one who turns him into royalty by marrying him. In addition to this, she actually becomes  queen, which also breaks the Disney trend of Queens Are Bad

Kida is beautiful, she is active and faithful. Her parents are not obsticales to overcome [Like Jasmine, Ariel, Marida, Repunzel (technically), Pocahontas, and Cinderella] but rather a fixed point. She is faithful to her father and respects him. She defies him, but only because she feels it is the greater good for her people, not for herself or her personal interests. Kida is incredibly selfless in that regard, and it speaks volumes for being an example toward younger girls. 

She’s also incredibly non-conventional, what with having magical powers- technically, what with her ability to heal with the crystals that power her people- in addition to having white hair, darker skin, and tattoos. Her outfit isn’t skimpier than, say, Ariel or Jasmine, as some people might have concerns about. 

Also, Kida is nearly nine-thousand years old. No, really. She was an infant when Atlantis was taken into the sea, and Milo mentions specifically that she has to be between 8,200-8,800 years old. This is an interesting dynamic because, obviously, she's magical and has been kept young for thousands of years; but that also means she has many, many years more to learn. 

Kida also uses Thatch, originally, to learn. He can read ancient scriptures and tomes, when her people cannot. Her people are dying, and she needs him to help restore it. She wants to learn, she knows how valuable something as simple as reading is, and she cherishes Milo’s talent in such a thing. 

So, put down your pitchforks for whatever fuck-up Disney’s putting out now for just a moment, and let’s all agree Kida deserves to be in the Princess line-up as much if not more than some of the others. 

She’s beautiful, she’s strong, she’s a fighter, she’s selfless, she becomes an incredible leader, she has an amazing relationship with her father, she made her love interest a prince and then a king, she is eager to learn, she’s original, she’s faithful, and she fell in love with a man for his smarts, his mettle, his bravery and his own loyalty to her and her people. 

Oh, and at the end?

They didn’t kiss.

It is inferred at the end of the movie that after taking the throne and restoring their city, only then do they get married. This isn’t a 3-day love story, people, this is a friendship that became a bond that resulted in marriage. 

Kida is incredible, and so is Milo. Atlantis is an underrated movie, and Kida is an under-the-radar princess.

Kidagakash (Kida)

All I can remember is the sky going dark and people shouting and running. And a bright light — like a star — floating over the city. My father said it called my mother to it. I never saw her again.

Someone should really talk to Disney about this. Especially because Hollywood has yet to turn out a prominent movie about Atlantis, Disney would be a fool to not take advantage of this fact. Even though it would be a remake of the animated film, they could build upon it and reimagine it as a massive, spectacular epic with mind blowing effects almost like Avatar. I would pay hella money to watch that shit.

14 Reasons why Disney's Atlantis: The Lost Empire kicks ass

1. Diverse cast

Audrey is Hispanic

Sweet is black/Native American

Vinny is Italian

Mole is French

And Kida is Atlantean

which brings us to our next reason…

2. The Atlanteans

This movie features a made-up race called the Atlanteans. Physically, have brown skin, white hair, and varying eye colors. Because of the crystals they wear around their neck, their lifespan is 300 times that of a non-Atlantean human. They possessed extremely advanced technology; they had the power of flight in 300 B.C.!

3. The scenery

4. The language

A language and a writing system was created just for this movie.

Inspired by the Sumerian language of Mesopotamia, it can be compared to other languages from media such as Klingon and Na'vi.

5. Kida

Princess Kidakagash is beautiful, smart, strong, and…

she can fight like hell

She’s also the first princess to later become a queen, followed by Elsa from Frozen. The two are often compared because of this, and also because of their white hair.

6. Character development

The characters all have unique personalities and backstories (inspiring a lot of fanfictions and headcanons)

7. The sass

Three sassmasters in one movie!

8. Vinny Santorini

How could you not love this guy?

9. The movie has funny moments

10. and sad moments

11. The soundtrack

While Atlantis isn’t a musical (meaning the characters don’t sing) it has an awesome score. x

12. Action scenes

Atlantis is one of the few Disney movies with a PG rating (aside from the recent Tangled, Brave, and Frozen, rated PG for ??? reason? In my opinion, if The Hunchback of Notre Dame is rated G, then these movies should be too. Maybe they think the CGI animation makes everything more intense.) Therefore, they have some sweet action/explosion scenes that you don’t usually see in Disney movies.

13. Villain conflict

Neither of the two villains are presented as villains at first; and one of the villains ends up killing the other, leading that villain to fire a zeppelin at the first villain’s ship out of spite.

It’s kinda awesome.

14. Romance is a small side dish, not the main course- which is refreshing for a Disney movie.

but Kida and Milo are so cute together ahh
