The director was making this massive deal about Emma's 'feminist' portrayal of Belle. Now I saw the movie and I watched the whole thing. And Emma's Belle is not just boring but also bland. The whole thing about being an inventor is mentioned at the beginning. Never is it brought up again. I'm sorry but if this movie had wanted to be feminist and progressive, they would have done something different like make Belle black or have the beast be a woman. This movie is feminist lite if anything
Honestly it’s just too bad that you even paid to see it tbh. P much everyone was already saying Emma was dry toast in that shit (hint it’s because she legitimately can’t act). I can understand how we were like ‘wow progressive Disney on a roll!’ but I think by now we can all agree that Disney doesn’t give a fuck about anything but money and slapped Emma and her white Feminism on that ish just for the money. Also Emma is a shitty Feminist.
Notice how one of her and her fans’ arguments for The Dress was how she’d have to ride a horse after so why put her in a corset? And how in the movie (and the book) she’s not even IN the ball gown for the riding scene?
