Female Disney Monologues:
1-minute Disney monologue for a female actor:
Character: Cinderella: “Cinderella” (1950)
Once upon a time, there was a girl named Cinderella. She lived with her wicked stepmother and stepsisters, who treated her terribly. But despite all of their cruelty, Cinderella never lost hope. She dreamed of finding happiness and love, even in the darkest of times. And then, one day, her fairy godmother appeared and transformed her rags into a beautiful gown. She went to the ball and danced with the prince, but at midnight she had to leave, and she lost one of her glass slippers on the steps. The prince searched the kingdom for the owner of the glass slipper, and when he found Cinderella, he knew she was the one he had been looking for. And they lived happily ever after. Sometimes, it may seem like all hope is lost, but never give up on your dreams. For with a little bit of magic and a lot of perseverance, anything is possible.
2-minute Disney monologue for a female actor:
Character: Mulan: “Mulan” (1998)
My name is Mulan, and I am a warrior. But I wasn’t always this strong. I used to be just a girl, a girl who was told that she had to be someone she wasn’t. I was told that I had to be quiet, obedient, and submissive. But that wasn’t me. I wanted to be free, to be myself, to make my own choices.
So when my country was in danger, and my father was called to serve in the army, I knew I had to do something. I disguised myself as a man and joined the army in his place. And it was hard. I had to train harder than anyone else, to prove myself, to earn the respect of my fellow soldiers. But I did it. I fought in battles, I saved lives, I proved that I was just as good, just as strong, just as brave as any man.
But even after all that, I still had to prove myself. I had to face the greatest enemy of all: the one inside me. The one that told me that I wasn’t good enough, that I wasn’t worthy, that I should just give up. But I didn’t. I faced my fears, I embraced who I was, and I saved my country.
Now, I am a warrior, a hero, a legend. But what’s more important than any of that is the fact that I am me. I am Mulan, and I am proud of who I am.
Disney short monologue for a female actor:
Character: Belle: “Beauty and the Beast” (1991)
I’ve always loved stories. Reading about far-off places, daring adventures, and brave heroes. But my life was never like that. I was always the odd one out, the girl who didn’t fit in, the one who was too smart, too different, too… strange.
But then I met him. The Beast. And everything changed. He wasn’t like anyone I’d ever met before. He was angry, and bitter, and trapped. But he was also kind, and gentle, and funny. And he showed me that there was more to life than just books and dreams.
I learned to love him, to see beyond his rough exterior, to see the good in him. And he learned to love me, to accept me, to see the good in me. Together, we broke the spell, we defeated the villain, we lived happily ever after.
But the greatest lesson I learned wasn’t about magic or adventure. It was about love. Real love. The kind that sees beyond appearances, beyond flaws, beyond differences. The kind that changes you, that challenges you, that transforms you.
And now, whenever I read a story, I know that it’s not just a story. It’s a lesson. A lesson about love, and hope, and the power of being true to yourself.
Male Disney monologues:
1-minute Disney monologue for a male actor:
Character: Aladdin: “Aladdin” (1992)
My name is Aladdin, and I used to be a street rat. I stole to survive, I lied to get by, and I never thought that anything good would happen to me. But then I met her, Princess Jasmine. She saw something in me that no one else did. She saw that I was more than just a thief, more than just a street rat. She saw that I had a heart, that I had dreams, that I had a spirit that couldn’t be broken.
And when I found that lamp, and met the genie, I thought that all my dreams had come true. I had everything I ever wanted, but I still didn’t have her. And that’s when I realized that all the gold and jewels in the world couldn’t compare to the love of someone special.
So I went back to being myself, a street rat, and I risked everything to be with her. And in the end, it all worked out. I got the girl, and I found out that the most important thing in the world isn’t what you have, but who you are.
1-minute Disney monologue for a male actor:
Character: Simba: “The Lion King” (1994)
I used to think that being brave meant never being afraid. But now I know that’s not true. Being brave means being scared, and doing what you have to do anyway. And I had to do a lot of scary things to get where I am today.
I had to leave my home, my family, everything I knew, and go out into the wilderness, all alone. I had to face danger, starvation, and despair. But I did it, because I had to. I had to find my courage, my strength, my destiny.
And I did. I found my true home, my true family, my true self. I became the king of the Pride Lands, and I ruled with honor, with justice, with love. But it wasn’t easy. I had to face my past, my mistakes, my fears. I had to confront my own darkness, and overcome it.
Now, I am a king, a hero, a legend. But what’s more important than any of that is the fact that I am me. I am Simba, and I am proud of who I am.
2-minute Disney monologue for a male actor:
Character: Hercules: “Hercules” (1997)
My name is Hercules, and I’m the son of Zeus. But I wasn’t always the hero you see before you. I was once a scrawny little kid, the laughing stock of my town. I didn’t fit in, I didn’t belong. But I had a dream, a dream of becoming a true hero. And I knew that in order to achieve that dream, I had to train harder than anyone else. So I did, day and night, until I became the strongest person in the world.
But being a hero isn’t just about strength. It’s about heart, about courage, about doing what’s right, even when it’s not easy. And I learned that lesson the hard way. I fell in love with a girl named Megara, but she was working for Hades, the lord of the underworld. He used her to trick me into giving up my strength, and he almost destroyed me. But I didn’t give up. I fought back, with everything I had. And I realized that true strength comes from within, from the people you love, from the people who believe in you.
Now, I’m a true hero. I’ve saved the world from monsters, from titans, from all sorts of evil. But that’s not what makes me a hero. What makes me a hero is the fact that I never gave up on my dreams, on my beliefs, on my friends. And that’s what being a hero is all about.
Remember, when performing a monologue, it’s important to be confident, clear, and expressive. Practice your delivery and take your time with each word.
