haveyoubeentobahia: dysney95: anuvia: cinnamonfart: OH MY GOD FROZEN DISNEY ONLY EVER DOES MOVIES ABOUT WHITE PEOPLE THEY’RE SO RACIST I HATE THEM Disney only does movies about white people. It’s disgusting How they never have any people of color from any other cultures And they totally glorify the white man And totally marginalize their plights And overall refuses to give children of color characters to relate to Those racist bastards. ok, but out of 53 animated movies you got how many? 8? 8 examples of movies where the plot is centered on people of other cultures. and the rest are about animals or white people. so tell me how it’s fair that people of color have 8 movies and the other 45 are about white people. anyone who knows me knows that I am all for questioning the Disney Corporation. Their portrayal of POC is one of many things that should be critiqued. BUT I think that last comment is a bit unfair. The thing is that The Disney Company is nearly 80 years old. It has gone through A LOT of changes of management. All of the examples pictured above are since 1992. And the about of movies with POC versus the films before the Renaissance are Astounding. The only example I can think before then is The Jungle Book (based on a racist book) and The Three Caballeros (starring animals, however, the history behind how Disney went out of their way to portray Latino characters proper ally is impressive, the Mexican Board of Tourism had the final say over Panchito). Could there be more POC characters and films? YES YES YES. Is the situation better than it was 30 years ago? YES YES YES So we should acknowledge that Disney is making gains. I WANT TO MAKE SURE EVERYONE UNDERSTANDS THAT DISNEY STILL HAS A LONG WAYS TO GO, OH YES. And it looks like they are! Pixars Day of the Dead and Moana! Yay! Lets hope they’re rightful portrayals! I see the point the last comment is trying to make, but it doesn’t hold up. If those 8 films were spread out over 80 years Id be angry. Instead I see progress, and I am happy about about that. Here’s to more POC representation in Disney movies. : ISNE haveyoubeentobahia: dysney95: anuvia: cinnamonfart: OH MY GOD FROZEN DISNEY ONLY EVER DOES MOVIES ABOUT WHITE PEOPLE THEY’RE SO RACIST I HATE THEM Disney only does movies about white people.

sweetmadameblue: jgaskisanerd: invinciblend: iamabutchsolo: Something that I think people vastly overlook in The Princess and the Frog is the friendship between Tiana and Charlotte. It may be only a small part in the film, but in the scheme of Disney movies, this is a revolutionary element. If you trace the history of all of the other Disney princesses - Ariel, Belle, Cinderella, Snow White, Aurora, Pocahontas, Jasmine, Rapunzel - no other princess is shown as having a female friend. Some may have mother figures such as Grandmother Willow in Pocahontas or the various fairy godmothers, and Ariel has sisters, but the princesses rarely interact with other women as friends. The Princess and the Frog is the only Disney princess film that actually shows women being friends with each other. Charlotte and Tiana were pals since childhood, and not once did we see Charlotte ever do anything but be a good friend, not falling into any pitfalls of petty friendships or letting class differences affect their relatiojship. When Tiana is trying to earn money on her own? Charlotte hires her knowing that it will help Tiana’s goal. When Tiana fell at Charlotte’s ball and much of the desserts were ruined? Charlotte didn’t care about the food, her number one concern was to make sure Tiana was alright. And when Charlotte learns that Tiana loved Prince Naveen? Charlotte didn’t even flinch; she was willing to forgo her own aspirations of being a princess because she cares about Tiana’s happiness more. I think this aspect of the film is what in my mind, separates it from other Disney princess movies. It deserve a lot more credit for being the only princess film that actually shows women being friends with each other, helping each other, and caring about each other. The Princess and the Frog shows a better female friendship than a lot of movies, even outside of princess or animated films. It was really one of my favourite bits of the movie and to say that it avoids the pitfalls is so true. At numerous points when I first watched I was thinking, “Here is where Charlotte reveals her true nature” because how often in movies do girls or women get to just be good friends? I mean, all friends have petty disputes sometimes, but it seems to be unavoidable in most female friendships in media (especially when it comes to romance). So this movie was a really welcome change. THIIIIIIIS. Valid point, but EXCUSE ME LET ME BRING YOU POCAHONTAS’ VOICE OF REASON. (I just have feels because I heart her. I had her doll.): sweetmadameblue: jgaskisanerd: invinciblend: iamabutchsolo: Something that I think people vastly overlook in The Princess and the Frog is the friendship between Tiana and Charlotte.
