What are the mods thoughts on an all female cast? I read that one of you thought it would be amazing, however an all male cast hasn't been done and if it was done now it would be ridiculed and pulled apart for being all male.

Dani: I’m up for both,

Gabby: I wish, but like you said, it will be ridiculed. Disney doesn’t have the balls to do that.

Jen: When people say an all female cast they don’t literally mean every single person is female, down to every last background character, they mean one where all the leads and secondary protagonists, antagonists, etc, are female. Contrary to what you said, Disney HAS made movies where basically the entire cast is male- The Jungle Book (Shanti is in the end for about 2 seconds, and is not a protagonist/antagonist/secondary protagonist), Pinocchio (again, the Blue Fairy is in it very sparingly), The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad, The Sword in the Stone, The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, Brother Bear, Chicken Little, Winnie the Pooh, (and I think Saludos Amigos/Three Caballeros were pretty male-lead) as well as many, many others where there may be a female or two (side characters) but it is overwhelmingly male -Atlantis the Lost Empire, Aladdin, The Lion King, Bambi, Robin Hood, Treasure Planet,  for example. Not to mention the Pixar films that are all incredibly male-led. 

I can only think of TWO Disney animated movies where the females outweigh, or at least are equal to the male leads- Home on the Range, and Sleeping Beauty. I wouldn’t count Little Mermaid because Ariel’s sisters are barely in it (and I’m not even looking at sequels, which aren’t released theatrically). 

So yeah, an all male cast would be pulled apart because it’s been way overdone. An all female cast, at least in their Walt Disney Aniamted Classics canon, has NEVER been done.
