“…[S]elf-image in children is shaped in some degree by exposure to images found in written texts, illustrations, and films” as Hurley (221) makes clear. She explains further, that children need to identify with the character they see to built up a positive self-conception (221). Fact is, that most of the Disney princesses have white skin. For dark-skinned girls it is almost impossible to identify with these characters. Nevertheless, “in a global array of children 's merchandise and play things, the Disney Princess franchise stands out” (Wohlwend 57).

Have you noticed yourself or others following the fairy tale stereotype of associating fairy tales with fluffy dresses and high heels? As a child, you may have thought nothing of the imaginary stories and plots of such tales. As you read, reflect upon the way fairy tales made you feel and act as a child.

In Homer 's Iliad and the film, Troy, the Trojans experience different fates at the end of the Trojan War (the fall of Troy). In Hamilton 's Mythology: Timeless Tales of Gods and Heroes Homer reveals that after the fall of Troy, "All that was left of Troy was a band of helpless captive women, whose husbands were dead, whose children had been taken from them. [Whom] were waiting for their [Greek] masters to carry them overseas to slavery" (288). After the Greeks defeated the Trojans, they killed all Trojan men and children. The Greeks also enslaved all the Trojan women took them to Greece.
According to the myth, Minos was imprisoning his enemies in the Labyrinth so that the Minotaur could eat them. The labyrinth was such a complicated construction that no one could ever find the way out alive. Son of Minos, Androgeus, went to Athens to participate to the Panathenaic Games, but he was killed during the Marathon by the bull that impregnated his mother Pasiphae. Minos was infuriated, and demanded Aegeus the king of Athens to send seven men and women every year to the Minotaur to advert the plague caused by the death of Androgeus.
The Book and Movie, The Hunger Games, is an allusion to The story of Theseus and the Minotaur from Greek Mythology. The story goes that Minos, the king of Crete, once sent his only son on a visit to Athens, and he was sent by the Athenian king to fight a bull. When the boy died from the fight, the angry Minos captured Athens and declared that he would destroy it unless they completed his bizarre demand: once every nine years, the Athenians had to send a tribute of seven maidens and seven youths, who would then be forced to confront the Minotaur, who would devour them. This directly parallels the story of The Hunger Games. This rewritten version of an old Greek legend shows a theme of how history can repeat itself.
