Let’s get straight into it this morning :). We all know, Disney doesn’t have many princesses of color. The only ones they have are Jasmine, Pocahontas, and Tiana. As a child who was raised on Disney movies, it’s kind of disappointing. Yesterday, when I saw that Disney is adding a Polynesian princess to the mix, I started to have hope!
I don’t know much about the plot of “Moana”, but according to the media her character is brave, empowered, and strong willed. Adult or not, I definitely plan to watch this, haha. I hope this encourages Disney to create more characters with different ethnic backgrounds. I also hope Disney keeps making movies about strong princesses, as opposed to princesses that wait in castles and in distress all day.
This movie definitely shows promise :)!
