Bad news for deluded young ladies everywhere: Geekosystem reports that Disney may be putting the kibosh on princess movies.

Davenport has set up a tent outside of what can only be the local Best Buy, so that she can make sure that her family gets a laptop, Blu-Ray player and TV that her they assuredly deserve.
