We need many kinds of Disney princesses, according to an extremely fun meme whooshing across the ‘net. We need a Disney princess who juuls; we need a Disney princess who is falling asleep/calling a cab/having a smoke/taking a drag; we need a Disney princess with chronic UTIs. We also, according to one Planned…
At long last, Disney has created a Latina princess to join its pantheon of (predominately white) royalty: Elena of Avalor. She’ll make her debut not in a feature length film, but via a new television series on the Disney Channel.
Disney’s newest princess Moana has found a voice in a young girl from Oahu named Auli’i Cravalho. The high school freshmen is about to make history as the first Polynesian royal in the pantheon alongside stories of Snow White, Princess Jasmine and Princess Tiana.
Disney has a movie in the works about a white man who buys land in Sudan so that his daughter can be a princess. Interesting. Sounds cool.
On Monday, Disney's interpretation of The Little Mermaid turned 25 years old. Do you still have your whosits and whatsits galore? What about those thingamabobs? Here's a better question: how does Ariel stand up in the shadow of Frozen?
Disney has dropped new info about their next major animated project—Moana, about a teenaged Polynesian girl who sets out for adventure on the high seas. Due to hit theaters in 2016, I hope it inspires a Frozen-style craze for marine biology among kids.
After professing her distaste for Ariana Grande, Mayim Bialik is back with another complaint: She didn't like the movie Frozen, either. She's really getting the hang of this blogging thing!
1. Disney Princesses as History's Scariest Dictators
Australian retailer BlackMilk just launched its Princess & Villains collection inspired by the ladies of Disney. To be clear, this is a line for adults. As in, adult humans are encouraged to wear this clothing on their bodies.
The artist who created a controversial series of posters depicting Disney princesses as victims of rape and incest is back with a new domestic abuse-themed collection.
Some of these are intuitive (Elsa as Piper), and some are just wrong (Eric should be Bennett, not Pornstache), but Disney Princesses and Orange Is the New Black is the apotheosis of the Internet, and a brilliant way to corrupt those wholesome cartoons.
An artist is using some familiar Disney princesses to send a powerful message about rape.
Forget your "happily ever after," Disney princesses.
You guys needed one more iteration of the Disney-princesses-reimagined-as-another-thing, right? This one's pretty rad, I promise!
At the end of January, a Virginia teen launched a petition asking Disney to add a plus-sized princess to its cast of characters. As of today, she's gathered more than 25,000 signatures. Good for her! But sadly, I'm pretty sure it'll never, ever happen—and I blame Meme Roth.
Look, I like Disney princesses as much as the next nostalgia-prone millennial. But they do tend to look like they were all churned out of the same assembly line. Remember what happened to Merida when it was time to move her into the pantheon?
Disney has a new princess in the works and her name is Moana Waialiki. She will be a young Polynesian sea-voyager and navigator who heads out on a journey to save her family, will probably overcome something dangerous and ultimately be awesome. It's our first Polynesian princess — this is very exciting.
Just when you think you've seen the last re-imagined Disney princess (or prince!), along comes some artist with another spin on the idea. This time, it's Disney princess depicted as characters from World of Warcraft, a game I pretend to be into whenever I want to make my boyfriend feel "understood."
It's pretty clear that someone will buy any-damn-thing with Disney princess branding emblazoned on it. Hell, the company has an entire wedding boutique. So it's not particularly surprising that a Japanese online retailer would create an entire line of Disney princess lingerie.
The Disney Channel is making a live action original movie called Descendants about the hitherto unheard of teenage children of Cruella De Vil, Maleficent, the Evil Queen and Jafar. Chances are that it'll be a total disaster, but, guys, this idea is sooooo good.
