I vaguely remember the Disney princess movie series I watched as a child at the age of 7 or 8 years old. Every princess in the film was able to find the prince charming also that is an ultimate goal of the happy-ending fairy tale.

They have not much knowledge at the age of 7; the children don’t care about what the film wants to tell them eventually.
