This is a Disney Princess appreciation blog that isn't afraid to analyze or break down disney. We advocate the need for more Princesses of Color (and other characters in general) in Disney films actively if not aggressively. If you can't handle talking about race, this might not be the blog for you. This is a body, queer+ and trans positive blog. All princesses kick ass.

Do not be fooled by its commonplace appearance. Like so many things, it is not what outside, but what is inside that counts.”

"I’ve always been interested in Disney making another Asian Disney princess, particularly a Korean or Japanese one because I am Korean & Japanese. I just want to have a princess that I can relate to culturally"

I remember talking to my mother and seeing Snow White and wondering if there’d ever be Chocolate Brown or something like that. But my parents were very good at making sure I had dolls that looked like me, and books with brown children in them, and birthday cards with brown children on them. They were very aware. When you discount a child from fantasy, it’s a very strong statement. You think, Wow, somebody made an entire movie with elves, and trees that talk, and things that fly, and there was no room for me.

Gamora/other things

Has anyone maybe thought that the reason there isnt a lot of Gamora merchandise might be because Zoe Saldana didnt agree to be part of some types of merchandise, because celebrities can do that if that clause isnt part of their original contract, and not that Marvels being sexist. Another thing is, you say disney is racist and that there needs to be more characters that are of colour, and okay yeah that used to be the case but regardless of what some people may think, disneys changed from all white characters and either british or american actors, to all sorts of coloured characters like mulan and tiana, etc, and if disney was really that racist and didnt care i personally dont think that they would do films based on cultures and races that are foreign to their own. Ok yeah frozen was basically a white film, but thats because as you can tell from their clothing, appearance, and general culture that they are from the Norwegian, Holland kind of area in Europe even though in ‘the snow queen’, hans christian anderson doesnt describe the character that kristoff is loosely based on as white…but thats just it the films based on the story, which doesnt mean that everything in the story and film are gonna be the same. Now you can say this makes Disney racist but really they are not they have just done what they want with the story, they have changed it to be unique and afterall its a made up story not a documentary and just because the havent included characters that are asian, african, latino, etc, people are getting annoyed, but why?? they may be white, but they are meant to be Norwegian or something similar to that so its not like they are just showing american or britsh Caucasians. Also technically theres like one more main white female character in disney movies, if you count Kida from Atlantis and Chel from The Road To El Dorado…so you dont really have much reason to complain

This is so poorly written that it’s kind of hard to understand but let me see if I can go by it point by point.

1) Are you trying to defend the lack of Gamora merchandise based on a pure hypothetical that you made up yourself? Because let me tell you there is no way Disney, who makes a major part of its revenue in merch sales, would ever ever EVER cast someone who refused to be on merchandise.

2) Don’t call them “coloured.” like what the fuck is the matter with you?

3) I’m sorry but I feel like having four princesses of color in a span of like 14 years doesn’t really compare to the amount of white that we’ve been awashed with. Like do you have any knowledge of the Disney company? Even the most basic of timelines in your head? No? 

4) There are people of color in Norway, there have always been people of color in Norway. Also, in the original story, there are people of color n Norway. Sooo i don’t know what your point is?

5) Literally nothing about Frozen is unique, sorry. Everything is a recycling of shit that has already done. And having the free reign to do ANYTHING and time and time again choosing to white wash stories (or choosing ANOTHER european story to begin with) shows a deliberate decision to keep their recent films super white.

6) “Also technically there’s like one more white female character in disney movies, if you count Kida from Atlantis and Chel from the Road to El Dorado” What are you talking about?!??!?! Kida and Chel aren’t white, Chel isn’t even a Disney character. I literally don’t understand what you mean. Do you mean like as a whole there is only one more white character than characters of color because let me tell you right now that that is BULL SHIT. 

Literally you need to go back, study some (which isn’t even studying it’s just knowing about Disney movies) before you come talk to us because none of this makes sense and I feel like I’m arguing with someone who has been drinking for several hours and is just word vomiting all over the place.
