We’re Sorting Disney Characters into their Harry Potter Hogwarts Houses

The AllEars team sure loves Disney — but you probably already knew that. But did you know, we also love Harry Potter?

That’s right — we can like two things. 😉

And recently we got to thinking (with all this time on our hands), what would happen if our favorite Disney characters went to Hogwarts? When they got the legendary Sorting Hat placed upon their heads — which houses would they be sorted into?

Naturally, this led to a fun discussion, and this is what we’ve come up with!

Our Favorite Disney Characters Sorted into Hogwarts Houses:

Gryffindors were the easiest ones to sort! They’re brave and daring, bold and courageous — almost to a fault. Most of these Gryffindors need no explanation.

We’re sure most of you think Gaston belongs in another, more snake-like house, but hear us out! First of all, they Gryffindors are basically the jocks of the wizarding world, and there’s no bigger jock than Gaston. Second, when you think about it — he IS rather brave. If you look at it from one angle, he’s a hunter heading to tackle a monstrous beast. And third, not all Gryffindors are good (looking at you Peter Pettigrew), so there’s no reason a villain can’t belong here.




Hufflepuffs get a lot of flack for being the “lamest” house, but we know that’s not true! Hufflepuffs are patient and loyal, fair and kind! Lots of our favorite Disney characters would be Proud Puffs, including:

Anna (like most characters) could also fit in other houses well, but we think her loyalty to Elsa and Arendelle is one of her biggest strengths, thus Hufflepuff.

Anyone that cares this much about spinach puffs belongs in Hufflepuff. It’s a scientific fact.

She may be sassy and bold, but deep down Esmeralda is kind and just. She frees Quasimodo from the villagers tormenting him, takes good care of her people, and if you  need further convincing — just go watch “God Help the Outcasts.”



Ravenclaw is the smarty pants house — and there are plenty of Disney characters who fit in here! Intelligent and sharp, witty and individual, these characters are smart, and don’t care what people think of them.

Once again, people may assume that because she’s a villain, she automatically belongs in a certain house. But when you think about it, she’s VERY smart. Ursula literally has Ariel sign a contract agreeing to her dubious deeds — if that’s not wise then I don’t know what is. Just because she has poor motives, doesn’t mean she’s not intelligent and witty.

See above. Yzma’s plan(s) are actually smart — it’s not her fault Kronk didn’t finish the job. She even plotted a fake funeral to establish her mourning and ensure people’s perception of her was positive. Smart lady.

Slytherins get a bad rep as the “evil” house. And sure, there are a few examples of that throughout Harry Potter, but that’s not all they are — in fact most Slytherins aren’t evil. They’re cunning and ambitious, perceptive and determined. They’re self-assured and really good at self care. Some Disney Slytherins are really easy to point out — others may come as a surprise to you.

This one is probably a shocker, but when you think about it, Woody is VERY Slytherin in the OG Toy Story. He literally tries to kill Buzz because he’s getting more attention than him…

Simba definitely goes through a journey throughout the film, and probably ends up as more of a Gryffindor. However, in the beginning (around the age he’d get sorted), he’s selfish and looking out for #1, which is why he belongs in Slytherin. Plus, Dumbledore says “I sometimes think we Sort too soon.” in the Deathly Hallows, meaning what you’re sorted into in your youth, may not reflect your qualities as you get older.

She literally ditches her family to go live alone in solitude in a sweet ice palace that she builds. That’s the most Slytherin move I’ve ever seen.

Ambition is one of the top principals of being a Slytherin and nobody has more ambition than Princess Tiana! (For the record, I’m a Slytherin and I can’t wait for Tiana to bring beignets to our next house reunion.)

Well there you have it — our Disney Character Harry Potter Sorting! We know lots of characters could belong in several houses, but we think we did a pretty good job nailing down the best one.

  1. Great list! The only ones I disagree with are Mike Wazowski and Yzma— I think they’re both Slytherin, ESPECIALLY Yzma. That woman is vain, ambitious and fabulous. PS. I’m a Slytherin 😉

  2. I am impressed! The only one I would argue is Nick Wilde. I see him as a Ravenclaw who admires Gryffindor values. He acted sly because it was how he’d been stereotyped, but he also hated it. I think that he was hopeless, rather than ambitious. He had given up on doing the things he had really wanted to do. He’s really smarter than Judy, witty and wise.

    Gilderoy Lockheart can be used as a precedent. He’s an example of a Ravenclaw who used his intelligence to scam people.

  3. My two favorite Disney Princess are both in my Hogwarts House!! Tiana and Megara! If only Pocahontas were too it’d be three for three, but I think she’s more on the Ravenclaw/Hufflepuff spectrum.

  4. My 2 cents: Gaston is Slytherin: he’s NOT chivalrous (a Gryffindor quality; also “”Do what is right” is the motto Gryffindors go by….and he does not fit that, for sure) AND, he IS AMBITIOUS = Slytherin…… Slytherins also have a tendency to be arrogant or prideful.
    Just sayin….

    1. He’s totally Gryffindor. Hear me out. We perceive Gastonia certain way because we view the story from Belles point of view. Look at it objectively. Gaston was most likely the town hero, he would have been considered a catch; strong, brave, a provider and leader. The beast on the other hand would have been perceived as a threat to their entire village and way of life. Gaston was incredibly arrogant and entitled, but those aren’t traits incompatible with Gryffindor in fact they may be integral; James and Sirius were both described as arrogant in their days, a product of their upbringing and Harry’s pride was a stumbling block to him way more often than not! But Gastons first reaction was to protect what he perceived to be his be it Belle or the town from threat, he did not ask questions or pass go, even to the point of leading people directly to the beasts doorstep because he thought it was right (keep in mind that without knowing the beast the people would have thought this incredibly dangerous and frightening!) If that’s not some foolhardy Gryffindor behavior I don’t know what is. So yeah, Gaston is an arrogant baffoon, but he’s Gryffindor through and through.

  5. I agree with most of these! I think Aladdin is a slytherin because he’s ambitious. Most people say that Elsa is a Ravenclaw… but I’m guessing people just say that because her dress is blue :/

  6. i would think tiana would be a hufflepuff knowing she is so determined to start a restaurant. she even has a whole song about it.

    1. I agree with you on Tiana. I’d also say that Belle is a Gryffindor. A lot of people put her in Ravenclaw because she likes books but one of Gryffindor’s defining qualities is they love adventure and that’s what Belle prefers reading about. Plus she willingly trades places with her father *after* she sees who’s keeping him captive and repeatedly stands up to Beast’s aggression without backing down. Not to mention “a certain disregard for the rules” when she goes exploring where she’s not allowed (i.e. when she finds the rose). There’s also a case for Hufflepuff because of her unwavering kindness to the Beast and loyalty to her father.

  7. Awesome article!! I agree with most of your sortings…I have to wonder what house you think Buzz would be placed. I was thinking Gryffindor or Slytherin…

    1. Yes, Buzz holds both Gryffindor and Slytherin traits, so you might be right about either. I would say Slytherin though, tbh.

  8. I think Aladdin is definitely a slytherin. He’s all about the end justifying the means and he’ll do anything to get what he wants!

  9. I’ve been meaning to just send a huge THANK YOU for the fun, informative, just plain great content you always put out, but espcially during this time. All the quizzes, recipes, updates, and videos have been amazing, and provide so many bright spots every, single day. Molly – the level of excitement that ripples through our family when you post a new video is potentially slightly embarassing. But they are just so transportative, happy and well done. Again, thanks to you all for the very evident love for Disney and hard work you put into everything you do!
