Disney’s The Princess and the Frog will open nationwide for Christmas 2009, but a little teaser just hit the internet. Just wanted to share with you all — the last time I wrote about this film, quite a few of you were excited. And some were understandably ambivalent — given Disney’s history we all should be a little wary, at the very least.
I know so many women who give Disney movies and Barbie dolls a wide berth, because of the negative impact their depictions of women can impart unto young girls. But as a little bella who grew up on white Disney princesses and blond Barbies, I know how much this would have meant to me as a young un. I definitely am planning on taking a closer look come next Christmas, and I’m trying… TRYING to withhold judgment until I see the whole cartoon. It’s hard, though. Thoughts, bellas?
