The Princess Rap Battle series has been out there for awhile, but the ante has been raised with the latest one, featuring Sarah Michelle Gellar as Cinderella while series creator Whitney Avalon is Belle. Along with other Disney twists, the rap battles play off of the canon while putting a modern spin, asking what they’d be like if they were set in modern day society.
Each side’s rap throws shade while touting their
This is the fourth rap battle in the series; the first two kicked off the series well in style. The first edition featured classic vs. modern with Snow White pitted against Elsa.
The second drifted from Disney to take on geekery with Lord of the Rings’ Galadriel vs. Star Wars’ Leia.
Each of the videos have a pair of back-ups for each princess behind them, fitting in with the theme, and all are fun.
My favorite might actually be Mary Poppins vs. Mrs. Claus, which takes it even farther. Avalon has a perfect Mary Poppins, and Mrs. Claus throws down with attitude, and a cameo from Bert and Santa himself (played by Parks and Rec actor Jim O’Heir).
The costumes are stars here too – the attention to detail is pretty insane. Kudos to the team putting these together!
