In the credits and press information for Excellent Adventure Kimberley LaBelle is credited with playing Elizabeth and Diane Franklin is credited as playing Joanna.  The princesses are not addressed by name on screen in the first movie.  But in the second movie not only did the actresses change but the names changed, with the red-head being Joanna and the brunette being Elizabeth.  This has led to some confusion about which princess is which!

Biography from 1989 Excellent Adventure Press Kit
