Maariyah by ArsalanKhanArtist Maariyah by ArsalanKhanArtist
hehe, oh well not really! I made her by my own idea. I just wish she join Disney Princess. I wish Disney would allow my important story to be made by Disney and make her a new Disney Princess with other nine (or more) princesses (Snow White, Cinderella, Aurora, Ariel, Belle, Jasmine, Pocahontas, Mulan, Tiana and Rapunzel).

Now let me tell you about this new princess:

Name: Princess Maariyah
Ethnic/Oigin: Pahari-Pothowari Princess (Jammu and Kashmir: modern day Azad Kashmir, Pakistan)
Story Title: The Hidden Princess
Theme song: I am wondering...

Story: Once upon a time, there was a King Mobeen and his beautiful wife Sadia who lived in their palace in North-West Hindustan (now known as Pakistan). Queen Sadia had died giving birth to Maariyah, her daughter.
Queen Sadia knew about Zara the evil jinn/witch but she appeared as human form. The evil witch killed all the queens and also the princesses due to their beauty. Zara always stole their beauty to put on her face, so she looked beautiful but she was so vain.
Queen Sadia had a necklace, which protected her from the evil. This necklace was to save Maariyah from the evil witch. This evil witch Zara will try to kill Princess Maariyah once she turns 16. The Queen told King Mobeen that her last wish was to see her daughter wear the necklace when princess Maariyah turns 16 ...

I wish Disney could see it, could you help me to spread this to world?? yes please ...

because she is a unquie princess who has it own style and culture, she is not arabian or hindu, she is a Princess Maariyah

Future Disney Princess line-up: Snow White, Cinderella, Aurora, Ariel, Belle, Jasmine, Pocahontas, Mulan, Tiana, Rapunzel and Maariyah

Mashallah! This would be a wonderful story! As an American Muslim, I believe it is important to identify Princess Maariyah with her true culture. American girls have vanity pushed at them in the form of Barbie. We are teaching our daughters modesty and the beauty of Islam, they need a doll with a story to be proud of! Have you thought of self-publishing, perhaps, a series of books on the story of Maariyah? It would be a wonderful Eid gift! Inshallah, everything will work out in your favor and we will see Princess Maariyah on the big screen soon!

Hello, thank you, I am writing this novel (or novelette maybe), I have developing with this story, now its about relationship and life of Father and Daughter based Traditionalism (Old Unislamic custom) and Modernism (New World) as it took place in early 1910s. Here is update outfit of Princess Maariyah.

As for Traditional Things that we are facing in Muslim Countries such as force marriage, father wish to have a son, women's rights and education and poor people's rights all sort, thats point I wanted to make a story to change the view of muslim people because most of them prefer culture over religion which Islam has give us much more than this!!

Also I have changed names of most characters, and the evil jinn is still evil character

Wish me a luck :D

This is a beautiful idea, but I think if Disney ever made a princess from the India/Kashmir region, she should be hindu. There is already another Muslim princess, and nothing but the Jungle Book (which is a poor representation) to represent India. Being Indian myself, I don't feel that we're being represented well. In a few years DreamWorks will make Bollywood Superstar Monkeys, which is a retelling of the Indian epic, Ramayan, but the fact that it's about monkeys makes it not really count.

Again, I am allow to create a character whatever I want, for your infomation, I am a muslim Kashmiri, this princess based on Poonch Division of Jammu Kashmir, that area which had muslim rulers since few centuries. She was born in late 1880s, so if she was a hindu princess, her location would have been in Jammu Division of Jammu Kashmir. Kashmir Valley hardly have hindu rulers since after 1400s.

OH I hope this can become a disney movie!!! I am half pakistani! and I think I could finally have a princess that will look just like me:) (my hair is brown, I have tan skin and my eyes are a light hazel) Not only does this princess make me feel special but I know Pakistan, and the culture is so beautiful and rich:)

Love her design. She looks better to me than the Disney lineup. I could totally see Disney trying to rip this off.
You should look into a different animation company and see if someone would be willing to collaborate with you. :)

Nice character there. I love the backstory. And yes, her outfit...in some ways looks like a bit of a composite of cultures, yet...its own one. Is there a name for those ornaments at the end of her braids?

Please, please stop refering to her as "future Disney Princess"; everytime I see that phrase, I want to explode.
At first, I didnt mind, but treating your own, unique princess like she is part of Disney lineup makes no sense.
Disney uses old fairytales. Maariyah is a unique creation, but not a Disney princess. So please, give her the respect she deserves and dont lump her in with the more famous girls. Let her shine with her own artwork, say she was inspired by Disney, dont say she is Disney.

Awesome! :D I like the idea of Disney creating movies about princesses all over the world...

I also have a chracter from a fairy tale that I'm working on, although she isn't a princess like yours, neither does she become royalty ;P

the original story was in China, but Disney already has a movie there (Mulan)
so I though Korea was a suitable place :nod:

give me more detail!!

i will add you name as creator

awesome! :w00t:
this is my latest artwork of her: [link]
Her name is Myeong-Yi and she is a kitchen maid. She has all the typical Korean features; dark hair that is almost always braided and tied back into a bun, she's not very tall (a bit shorter than most Disney females) and she usually wears a palace maid uniform (Korean hanbok). :)

uniform is similar to this: [link]
Hope it helps :D

Not to be rude but I don't think they would pick her up. Love the style and design but I don't think Disney would pick up a story that was located in a controversial area like Pakistan. Also the story is a lot like Anastasia which while not done by Disney is often compared with them.

I think the only way to get Disney to make your story into a film is to get a job there. Disney does not accept ideas from anyone who doesn't work at their company. This could be useful to help you get a job at Disney.

só pra ficar claro, é só a minha opnião!

Achei a história bem interessante, mas eu particularmente tenho um preconceito com países quentes e cheios de pano, a ideia foi boa, mas pra mim seria melhor se se passasse em qualquer outro lugar, sobre a princesa agora, eu não gostei da roupa nem do penteado, mas ela é bonita... Otimo trabalho! Boa sorte!

Just to be clear, it's just my opinion!

I found the story very interesting, but I personally have a bias in hot countries and full of cloth, the idea was good but to me it would be better if they spent anywhere else on the princess now, I did not like the clothes or the hairstyle, but she is pretty ... Great job! Good luck!
