So, I'm going to try a little experiment. I'm going to watch two Disney Princess related videos and give my thoughts on them as they go along. First up is the Disney Princess War sketch from Robot Chicken. From my understanding, this would've come out anytime in the second half of 2012 or in 2013 before Frozen. Let's see what I think of this video.
0:11 - Right to the stereotypes. At least none of the girls who spoke dislike girly things. Except maybe Tiana. 0:25 - Did they use a generic barbie for Rapunzel, or is that just how her doll turned out. 0:30 - How appropriate that Snow White is the one trying to shut up Merida. 0:52 - Uh, about that, it was common for Disney to get other musicians to sing songs from their movies and those versions climbed the charts. Of course, that was before Let it Go came along and proved that the movie versions of songs were more popular than the radio ready versions. Thank you Queen Elsa. No problem Andy. 1:10 - You know, I was thinking that Mulan would side with Merida on this issue and she did not disappoint. 1:13 - Oh wait, most of the newer princesses are coming. Okay then. 1:26 - One of the reasons I'm doing this is because I'm writing a story about a boy who turns into a princess for a TF contest. One of the things he needs to do is talk to non-human animals. Also, I like how the war counsel is bluebirds. 1:40 - What if those guns shot magical ammunition that never ran out? 1:48 - Oh Ariel, you're so dirty! Considering you only wore seashells as a mermaid, that shouldn't be surprising. 1:54 - I was wondering if Pocahontas was here and she's here. 2:02 - Nice one-liner Rapunzel. 2:07 - What's with the random alligator? 2:24 - I can't tell if Aurora's being sarcastic or not. 2:39 - That doesn't look good for these princesses. 2:52 - Why did Sebastian just say that? 3:05 - Nice job finishing the short Tinkerbell.
Okay, that was pretty funny. But of course, we gotta get to the elephant in the room. I still haven't seen the Wreck-it Ralph 2 trailer. Normally, I don't watch trailers since they tend to give away big surprises. However, this one has gotten a decent amount of buzz because the princesses are all in one place in an official Disney movie. Please note, I am watching a video with multiple trailers for Wreck-it Ralph 2. I will only be commenting on the princess stuff.
0:50 - Do any Scottish people find this offensive. At least the casual clothes of these princesses look good. 4:54 - Does anybody else think that this movie is gonna treat Vanellope like she's the first princess to break the mold when in reality, there have been other princesses that have been just as empowered? That's my big fear right here. Girl, you're still wearing a skirt.
Huh, I didn't actually have much to say. I have faith that Disney's animation department can treat the other princesses respectfully (or at least as respectfully as possible while still being comedic). Unfortunately, I have heard that the 2017 Beauty and the Beast remake tried way too hard to be a feminist movie and the quality of the story suffered as a result. It's hard to know what to think, but I think we're just gonna have to wait until Wreck-it Ralph 2 comes out.
