This Friday, Dove Cameron makes her Disney Channel debut as Mal, the evil daughter of Maleficent in the new Disney Channel Original Movie Descendants. While making the interview rounds in New York City with her fellow cast mates Booboo Stewart, Sofia Carson, and Cameron Boyce, Dove stopped into AOL Build to give a live-streamed interview all about the movie, her favorite princesses, Liv & Maddie, and more.
You'll never guess which bombshell Dove dropped first: She named her favorite Disney princess! (All this time we had thought it was Rapunzel, but it seems like when Dove was younger, she had a soft spot for another gal with a crown... and a fin!)
"I was really into Ariel, I think," Dove dished. "Ariel was my girl back in the day."
While The Little Mermaid was totally baby Dove's favorite when she was growing up, the Disney Channel actress admitted that she also really loves the more modern-day princesses, as well.
"I always hesitate to say that my favorite princesses are the new ones because I know it's cooler to be like, 'I like the OG people,'" Dove revealed. "But I really love Elsa and Anna and Rapunzel. I like the recent ones because I think they're goofier. They're weirder. As we as a society get weirder, I think they follow us. That's cool."
And when Dove's interviewer suggested that Cinderella wasn't as goofy as Elsa, Anna, and Rapunzel, Dove agreed, saying, "[She's] way too serious!"
