I just think The Princess and the Frog was weird for being set in such modern times and in the USA of all places, where they don't even have princesses, and then had the Prince come from a fictional country.
Gee, I wonder where they have millions of black princes and princesses and kings and queens of all sorts of tribes, and evil wizards and witches to boot, which could be fit easily into any kind of fairy tale story?
Yet the one time they actually did a Disney movie set in Africa, the main characters were lions. Oh wait. There was also Tarzan, where the main African characters were gorillas.
Clearly, there are no people in Africa. If we want a black Disney princess, better set it in America...
I’ve noticed a lot of friends who need a bit of a pick-me-up lately, and I could use one too. So I made this set of some encouraging words from disney characters. If you’re having a bad day or you’re going through a rough time lately, this is for you.
what she means:why are there people who don't consider tiana a disney princess?? i understand the debate over whether or not pocahontas and mulan are princesses since they're in the lineup but not technically royalty, but at the end of the movie she marries a prince and they say out loud at least three times that she's a princess. belle was never seen actually marrying the beast but she's still considered a princess. is racism a factor? is it just that some people only consider the princesses from snow white to mulan as real disney princesses? those movies were all new at some point too; why does it matter when they came out? you could say it's because the movie didn't do as well at the box office as tangled or frozen, but it was still considerably successful. also why do people say tangled started the disney revival when patf was the one that rekindled the public's interest in disney like the little mermaid did in 1989? tiana deserves so much better than this.
