It’s About Damn Time, Disney


In Disney’s Frozen, several characters call a princess out when she meets a handsome prince at a ball and falls in love ¬†and gets engaged on the spot. To be honest, when Elsa told Anna “you can’t marry a man you just met,” I about fell out of my seat. Cinderella, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty—these Disney movies praise princesses who fall in love and settle their futures on the spot, whether after one ball or after even less. While some of the more recent princesses have been more creative, Disney has never really challenged their earlier tellings. That with Frozen Disney has finally—finally—subverted this narrative . . . well, it’s about damn time.
