Imagine a movie like The Avengers
But instead of Marvel heroes joining forces
It was Disney Princesses
“I have an army,” Maleficent taunted.
“Yeah?” said Rapunzel, “We have Kuzco.”
YOU THREW OFF MY GROOVE
“That’s my secret Mulan… I’m always off groove”
when he’s angry he turns into a giant llama
such an important movie
LOOK AT ALL THE CULTURALS!!!
I FUCKING LOVED THIS MOVIE
Crying. It’s like, the more diverse this country gets, the less diverse mainstream media gets. *sigh*
I was actually thinking about this movie a couple of days ago and how much I wanted to watch it because of the diversity of the cast. And then I forgot. So thanks, Tumblr, for promptly reminding me!
This about sums up how I feel about the Merida changes.
I wasn’t aware of these changes and now that I am, I am extremely disappointed in Disney.
And props to the woman who did this video.
This is great! I read today that they had pulled the sexified Merida off their website. Hopefully they’ll keep it off.
black princess supremacy
This is why we need all the princesses. EVERYBODY GETS THEIR PRINCESS.
OK BUT CAN WE NOT HAVE DONALD, HUEY, DEWEY AND LOUIE DRESSED UP IN HEADDRESSES AND WARPAINT?
YOU GUYS AREN’T MAD ENOUGH ABOUT THIS.
ew this is a modern product what even
Oh my lord. -facepalm- Disney, why …
Um. Merida got a redesign. And tHIS IS NOT OKAY??
Sure Disney’s done redesigns for all their princesses lately and they messed those up pretty badly too. There’s no point raising a fuss about Cinderella and Aurora’s bangs because sigh I guess it’s just hair (even though it really is quite atrocious. Their iconic hairstyles are simply gone) and it’s the downright disrespectful appropriation going on in Pocahontas’ new look that merits more complaints. But this. THIS. They’ve taken poor Merida and turned her into exactly what she didn’t want to be. She’s clearly skinnier than before even though Brenda Chapman specifically designed her not to be, her poor precious face is almost unrecognisable and they put her in the dress that she hated, the dress that wasn’t just literally a physical constraint for her but symbolised everything that she hated about her life. They’ve put her in the dress that stands against everything she spent her entire film fighting against. They gave Merida choice and autonomy and now they’re taking it away just because they want her to fit in with the rest of the princesses. THE WHOLE POINT OF THE FILM AND THE CHARACTER WAS THAT SHE DOESN’T HAVE TO CONFORM TO OTHER PEOPLE’S EXPECTATIONS OF HER BUT THAT SHE CAN BE A STRONG, CONFIDENT AND STILL FEMININEYOUNG WOMAN ON. HER. OWN. TERMS.
And Disney’s gone and spit on all of that.
It’s not even the people who drew and designed her that want it, there are so many interviews and inside opinions where people specifically state that they hate what they’re doing to the characters with the redesigns, and that they keep trying to tone them down or keep them closer to the spirit of the originals. But marketing or whatever other crappy departments Disney have breathing down their necks forbid them from doing so and insist that no, make them look more ridiculous more horrible because this is Disney we don’t care about children growing up with healthy views on women all we care about is money and we’re sure this will get us lots of it omg so much money all the money leT’S EMBRACE THE MISOGYNY BECAUSE IT’LL GIVE US MORE CASH THAN WE KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH.
It’s not even just me, there is petition going around for people to sign asking Disney to stop and change Merida back because no this is wrong this is disgusting and i am in literal tears right now i cant handle this shit.
merida was one of my favorite princesses (after tiana) because she didn’t WANT to be a princess. she wanted to be her own fucking person. she doesn’t want to be what her parents want.
and look now she’s pretty and archery waaaaaaat?!!!!@3
First off your leading lady is all curvy and snarky.
Second your villain is sarcastic and pissed off all the time.
Then you literally have a chorus of these sassy bitches. Calling Meg out on her shit, “like nah uh girl, we know you’re lying! You got it bad for that boy.”
Then you got the super sassy god of sass, Hermes.
In conclusion, Hercules is one of my favorite and most watched Disney movies.
