I AM SO EXCITED YOU HAVE NO IDEA.
Yeah exactly. I didn’t mention it before because it was totally like “how can we make it even MORE obvious that this is set in the Middle East?”
Plus with lyrics like “where they cut off your ear if they don’t like your face/it’s barbaric, but hey, it’s home!” they aren’t exactly doing their part to portray Islam in a positive light.
No, neither of us are :/
I actually really like the song!!! I’m not as anti-Frozen as Alex is, lol.
As far as the rest of the soundtrack, I thought “Love is an Open Door” was cute and “Do You Wanna Build a Snow Man”. I didn’t much care for “For the First time in Forever” or the reprise of that song, either. I hated “Fixer Upper,” I think it has a terrible message in it and I wasn’t a fan of the trolls in it either. “In Summer” had me rolling, I’ll admit. Lots of visual and lyrical puns and puns always get me. I think the biggest problem I have with the soundtrack is that they only had Jonathan Groff sing ONE FREAKING 30 SECOND SONG ABOUT REINDEER AND THAT’S IT WHY WOULD YOU CAST HIM IF YOU DON’T WANT TO GIVE HIM LOTS OF SONGS??
Anyway, I think that the soundtrack was very big stage musical driven and was weak in some places and strong in others.
In a perfect, non racist world, anon!
It’s world book day today (in the UK) and my son’s school did a thing where the kids were allowed to go in dressed as characters in books. In reality this turned out to be that in the reception class my son is in (4-5-year olds) most girls showed up dressed in Disney princess dresses and most boys in Marvel/DC superhero outfits. In the school yard I overheard one of the boys make a comment to a girl that she couldn’t be a princess since she had short hair. The bell rang that instant and all the kids ran off so I was just left there steaming with a piece on my mind I couldn’t get out there and then. So here’s short haired Disney Princesses.
I’m straight and I’m latina, Mexican American if you want to get specific.
Not dumb at all! I think it’s really important to normalize as many different aspects of culture as we can. And also there’s really no reason at all why we can’t have a POC princess who is also a Muslim.
