The Princess and the Pea

So, The Princess and the Pea is one of my favorite fairy tales, and I was wondering why it hadn't been made into a movie. Then I read the original by Hans Christian Andersen, and I realized that not only is it super short, it has no villain. However, as I thought about how much I would love it if it somehow became a movie, I realized that the princess must have a back story, which would draw the story out and make it more exciting. So I started drawing the peasant girl from my last post with the Princess and the Pea in mind, but I didn't have a logical way to make the peasant girl become a princess--at least, not with fairy tale logic. So I began to draw a more princess-y character, using early concept art by Mary BlairHere's a sketch of the princess:
