Comments for OpEd: Disney Live-Action Movies Are Changing How We View Disney Princesses

Live action

    Only female Disney fans are bothered by Disney princesses.
    That’s because only female film fans criticize a movie by saying “That was the worst movie in the world! I would never do what the character did!”

    Well…that’s probably because the movie isn’t setting out to be a depiction of the viewer’s life, nor a judgmental commentary thereupon, nor instructional manual on how the viewer should live her life, nor providing her with preset standards that she is expected or socially-obligated to dream-aspire to, and not some vile male-dominated industry conspiracy to convince naive girls that this is how they should live their life.
    That’s because it’s not real. It’s just…a freakin’….STORY. If it’s Beauty & the Beast it’s a 200-yo. story, and if it’s Mulan, it’s a 500-yo. story….”Oh, so it’s socially outdated?” No, it’s just not real. Somebody made it up. (Well, okay, except for Pocahontas and Mulan.)

    That’s probably why guys, who otherwise wouldn’t come to the defense of cute animals or dresses, always rush to defend the honor of Snow White or Cinderella, against vile accusations of corrupting our 21st.-cty. daughters.
    It’s not “sexist” or “chauvinistic fantasy”, we just liked the character in the story that somebody made up.

      Lol are you kidding me!?! You are an Internet troll in denial. You are trying to tell me that men don’t voice any critique of women whether they are a fictional character or not? If you were Pinocchio your nose would be yard stick length by now!!!

      And from your history on this site, you are the FIRST PERSON to criticize anything

    What Elle Fanning’s portrayal of Aurora in the ‘Maleficent’ films? The character was given a lot of development compared to the 1959 animated film.

    What about Nala in the Lion King? Most overlooked live-action Disney princess ever.
