“I desperately want to direct or animate a Disney movie, but I’m scared that if I make one move wrong, eg, not make characters plus size etc then everyone will hate the film and hate me. But I’m also nervous that if I do add a POC character and do something wrong then I’ll be called a racist, something that I am not. I just want little kids to look at my film and love it and cherish it, and inspire them to live their dreams, not offend or hurt anybody. It breaks my heart really.”
“The recent criticism of Moana- on how Maui is a bigger character, really pisses me off. People complain about the skinny princesses & wanting bigger characters. Here’s Maui and they complain about him?! He’s not promoting obesity. He’s not saying pacific islanders are obese for god’s sake. He’s built like a strongman & is a magical demi-god. I hope this film does better than Frozen because it looks so beautiful and amazing. Find something valid to criticize because Maui’s size isn’t offensive!”
C: Can’t stand the fact that ppl just assume that a plus size girl should settle for any guy that comes her way. Like my peers keep pushing me to date this guy that I’m not attracted to (he’s creepy) just because he likes me. I don’t like him but my friends are like “You should be lucky someone even likes you.” Like wtf. I refuse to settle for any guy. I’m allowed to have a type of guy I like/standard with guys I’m attracted to. 🙄. The fact that I’m a virgin also makes me picky about guys.
“Making a plus size Disney princess could open so many doors for people. It would allow plus size girls to work as face characters in the park, and could make lots of kids feel better about their bodies. People who are against it are just bigots.”
