    Upon examining representations of femininity of Disney characters, it is evident there is a stark focus on the dichotomy of good girls and bad women. In other words, their behavioral characteristics and prevailing climactic outcomes in the films, such as Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, reinforce the idea that claiming agency and independence, is not only associated with evil but also posits a representation of femininity that women are discouraged from emulating. Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

    And there is a definite reason why; Disney does the magic in our lives. I grew up watching Lion King, Mulan, and Pinocchio. In Pinocchio, there were the scenes in the Pleasure Island, where, when the children had enough time doing what children are not allowed to, such as smoking, drinking alcohol, wrecking places, and fighting, they would turn into donkeys. I was shocked when the Pinocchio turns into a donkey. I was afraid of becoming a donkey, so I remember that I always tried to live honestly. Mulan

    For this final reading response, I have decided to look in depth at Thomas Nelson’s piece of writing called Darkness in the Look and to also interpret and analyze specific aspects of this particular reading.
