I want to be a Disney princess…
Why? Because they always get the guy, are pretty, great clothes, wonderful singing voices, and best of all heroines. Disney has found a way to take the image of a normally girly and not so heroic stereo type of snobby perfect females who were weak and couldn’t get their hands dirty into POWERFUL women.
In Disney’s latest film Brave the tag line is Change Your Fate. The lead character Merida doesn’t want to settle for what life has handed her. She dares to ask “what if”. Looking back on all of the Disney princesses this has become a theme over the years, with this years film stating it boldly in their tag line.
So thanks Disney for taking the princess image to a whole new level, a much better level. And for making my childhood and adulthood memorable.
