The “Dream Big Princess” ad campaign is huge on their channels right now.They’ve gotten a huge backlash from the Left saying they don’t want girls dreaming of being princesses and longing for a prince to set them free. So, Disney now focuses on having girls “Dream Big.” Pretty good, right? But they have noticed that there is no commercial for them.
While Kristoff is not a bad role model, Anna walks all over him, and I’m not sure that’s something I want for my sons.
Strong women, yes, but weak men who in the end don’t do anything? Now for “Moana.” As someone who lived in Hawaii for a short time, I was really interested in what Disney would do with this.
Then there’s the villain who became a bear because he wanted the whole kingdom for himself. So, nothing there for my boys to do except say “Feast your eyes” several times. Yet in this film the men were just background noise.
The villain, Hans, is the charming man who wants to marry Anna but only for selfish reasons and then kill her.
But he tries to better himself and is intensely loyal and selfless to Jasmine, once again intent on giving up his life to save his love. They’re the only male characters that you’d want your sons to want to be like.
They’re the only role models from Disney worth their snuff.
I fell hook, line, and sinker for “The Little Mermaid,” “Lion King,” “Aladdin,” “Beauty and the Beast,” and even “Toy Story.” When Pixar started making movies, I was even more enthralled. Many people don’t remember their show in the evening called “Avonlea,” but I do.
It caused me to read all the Anne of Green Gables series and cultivated my love of reading.
The other male characters are the villains or overbearing, clueless fathers who bumble around or break all the girls’ things.
Even in this era, male role models leave a lot to be desired.
The only male characters in the movie are the father and Maui.
