Can Every Girl Be a Princess? : Disney’s Biased Color Symbolism in Their Princess Movies If we believe Cinderella than “[e]very girl can be a princess” (Grady and Panzer). Actually, we have nothing more to do than “close [our] eyes and see” and then with a tip of the magic wand, we will be gone from “just [us] to royalty” (Grady and Panzer). But is it really this easy? For many young girls the Disney princesses serve as idols.
The media plays a huge role in informing children on how to behave. Hollywood as an industry has a history of sexism. Movies may often have limited female roles, or show girls to be docile and subservient. The “Disney princess” phenomena arguably encourages young girls to be overly concerned with their appearances and, sadly, not much else. Young girls may grow up watching popular Disney animated features, such as Cinderella, which center on female protagonists who are obedient, passive, domesticated, and accept the status quo.
Mirror Mirror fantasy comedy genre, this movie is great for a family movie and people who love comedy. For example, when the reflection of queen evil says “trust me, I am after you all. Merely a reflection of you, I have no wrinkles.” It shows that the reflection of queen evil is mocking queen evil. The scene that should be serious, turned into funny because the babble of the reflection of the evil queen. In addition, there is also a funny incident when Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs destroy the evil queen wedding with Princes Alcott.
Therefore, marriage or love was considered as the common theme of Disney heroines. For example, Snow White is "wishing for the one she loves to find her", Ariel puts herself in risks to win over Prince Eric, and Cinderella decided to be charming for a few hours before going back to reality (Disney, W., & Hands, D., 1938). From the information, it can be seen that in the past period of time, Disney Company paid less attention to women by detracting them and putting them in the subordinate position. Fortunately, there has been conversions and development about men and women’s role in the 20th century. Thenceforward, women gradually have the rights to work like men.
Yet, despite the fact that the more modern versions of the same fairytales tend to work on portraying a more feminist side of the story, the beautiful girl always gets the Prince (or finds any form of love), falls in love, and becomes rich. If not, then misery envelopes the protagonist. Feminist critics try to shed a light on the reality of these stories and how the moral lesson is always the same. Even when it comes to real-life based fairy tales, like Pocahontas, where a young twelve-year-old Native American tribe princess is kidnapped from her family and forced to marry, the only “feminist” version that we hear of today is a Native American young woman who falls in love with a European man who is forcefully taken away from her. Despite the fact that these women had to suffer great ordeals during those times, fairytales have decided to convert this dreadful story into a story of love.
“Princess Paradox” first talks about how Hollywood has had great success with princess films. It first starts with how girls have recently changed from a “kick-ass culture”, to almost all little girls wanting to be a beautiful princess and have a handsome prince. Poniewozik explores how princess and Cinderella movies have evolved from the princess being saved to the princess saving Prince Charming, being able to fend for herself, and being independent. Poniewozik then gives examples of new types of princess movies listing movies such as Ella Enchanted, and The Prince and Me in order to convey his message of the new type of princesses. He even reasons that the new evolution of princess movies by saying that feminist authors have reinvented fairy tales to support his claim.

Someday my prince will come No matter which city or town a child is born in, no matter the cultural background of the family, no matter the language the family converses in- the ubiquity of Disney and the means through which these tales penetrate societies galore is almost psychedelic! Disney, however, sells more than fancy tales- they sell values, they sell concepts of love and success, and to a great extent, societal norms. They tell us who we are and who we must be. This influence is especially minacious when young girls’ vulnerable minds have seeds sown from the moment they are allowed to perceive the world through their own eyes. They are bombarded with notions of right and wrong, and taught that external appearance is the single most important factor that determines the worth of an individual.
