Could Disney’s Next Princess Have Special Needs?

Could Disney's Next Princess Have Special Needs?

Many little kids, at one point or another, have wanted to be a Disney Princess. We grew up watching Belle, Ariel, Jasmine, Mulan and others teach us that it’s okay to be brave, strong-willed, vulnerable and fiercely independent, and as the times have changed, the brand’s Princesses have adapted to become more culturally diverse. But there is one kind of Disney Princess we’ve never seen: one with special needs. Keep reading »

Watch This: Disney Princesses Realize They Don’t Need A Man To Achieve Their Dreams

Disney Princesses Realize They Don't Need A Man
Why Does Every Princess Need To Have A Prince?

I think every feminist who grew up loving “The Little Mermaid” has that moment when it hits you: Ariel literally gave up her voice for a man. Then you start thinking about the gender dynamics in all your other favorite childhood movies, and pretty soon your Disney obsession has crashed down around you, a pile of misogynist, racist rubble where Cinderella’s gleaming castle used to be. This video asks a simple question: what if Disney princesses realized everything they gave up to snag their princes, and decided to be their own heroes instead? [YouTube]

Teen Petitions For The First Plus-Size Disney Princess

Disney princesses are a very specific breed of (cartoon) women, something akin to a casting session for “The Bachelor.”  Tall, skinny, long-hair, conventionally beautiful. In other woods, despite the company’s attempt to diversify their movies in recent years, Disney princesses are not even remotely reflective of women in the real world.

High school junior Jewel Moore of Farmville, Virginia, is trying to change that. She is asking Disney, through a Change.org petition, to create the first-ever plus-size Disney princess.  Keep reading »

Dream Or Nightmare: Disney Princess Lingerie

Disney Princess Lingerie

I’m not usually one to go crazy for Disney Princesses or novelty lingerie (unless it involves Ninja Turtles), but I have to say, I’m unexpectedly smitten with these Disney Princess bra and panties sets from Japan. They totally capture the spirit of each princess, but in a sexy, modern way. Like, if I saw that Aurora bra at Nordstrom today, I would just throw all my cash and credit cards down on the counter and say, “I don’t even care how much it costs, GIMME THAT BRA.” Check out close-up shots of each set and tell us: would you wear them? And any guys reading: do you dig the sexy princess look?  Keep reading »

Some Day Her Prince Will Come

Now that Disney has purchased LucasFilm, Princess Leia has got to get with the program on that whole Disney princess thing. Lucky for Leia, the other Disney princesses are all happy to teach her how to be a pretty, pretty princess and wait quietly by until her prince comes to save her. In song, of course.

Brace Yourselves For Yet Another Disney Princess

You know what little girls don’t have enough of? PRINCESSES. The scarcity of doe-eyes, glass slippers, and pink frilly dresses is truly criminal. But children need not suffer anymore: Disney is introducing a new princess marketed towards two- to seven-year-olds. “Sofia The First,” a red-haired princess in an elegant purple gown, is getting her own TV movie and TV series that will air on both Disney Channel and Disney Junior. But Sofia is noteworthy not just ’cause she is a princess — because she is a girl princess. Up until now, all Disney princesses (like Jasmine, Snow White and Cinderella) have been adult women. Hopefully this means Sofia is concerned with something more important than scoring a ring from Prince Charming?  [NY Times] Keep reading »
