While the film Ralph Breaks the Internet has online versions of the two known as "netizens", where they are two of the Disney Princesses from the website, Oh My Disney.

At the beginning of their Disney films, they were both seen as children before the their childhood timelines jump to a time where they are a bit older before it reaches the film's main timeline that their stories mainly focus on.
