A New Kind Of Disney Princess
Should there be a plus sized Disney princess?
With the success of Frozen, it seems like it's safe to say that Disney may be entering a new "Golden Era". Frozen seems to be a return to classic Disney movies, in the way that they perfectly interweave memorable and catchy songs into a great storyline, but with a twist. It's no longer just about the prince and the princess and their true love. Disney in exploring different kinds of relationships. Brave explored the mother-daughter relationship and Frozen is about the love between sisters.
We can only hope that Disney continues with this trend, and it seems that one young lady already has suggestions about what a new Disney princess. There is already a petition in Change.org for a plus sized Disney princess. High schooler Jewel Moore wrote "I made this petition because I'm a plus-size young woman," the Farmville, VA resident writes, "and I know many plus-size girls and women who struggle with confidence and need a positive plus-size character in the media. If Disney could make a plus-size female protagonist who was as bright, amazing, and memorable as their others, it would do a world of good for those plus-size girls out there who are bombarded with images that make them feel ugly for not fitting the skinny standard."
What say you? Do you think there should be a plus sized Disney princess?
