Evolution of the Disney Princess


Evolution of the Disney Princess

The Evolution of the Disney Princess: According to Maui in Moana, "you wear a dress and have an animal sidekick; you're a princess.” The argument around a generic stereotype depicting Disney Princesses has become so pervasive, it has even made its way in a few of their films.

Disney enthusiasts, who have followed and studied the 80-year legacy of Disney Princess films, have watched it transform from frivolous flights of fancy only fitting for little girls, to progressive representations of heroines who are confident, curious, and courageous. The evolution of these films have charted a growth for female heroes.
