CHRISTMAS PARADE YAAAAAASSS
“Think, Believe, Dream, and Dare.”
I’m one with the wind and sky.
Aaaaaaall right, so, HERE is my take on what could have been an alternate concept for Disney’s upcoming Frozen movie. All the usual disclaimers about how I have no problem with Disney itself, I just think there are places other than Europe to set an animated movie, and the This Could Have Been Frozen project is a nice way to stretch the design muscles and give a little love where it is well past due.
I know lots of people count Kuzco as a South American princess, but, well, I don’t, so I thought putting something set in the Andes (specifically the Argentina stretch) would be something fun, and different, and give lots of opportunities for bright colors and impressive, snowy expanses.
Yessss, the “This Could Have Been Frozen” blog is giving me so much life rn.
(Well, aside from the pressed white ppl sending them asks. But so much pretty art!)
i am down for this.
THIS IS CUTE AS HELL
I hope someone at Disney is seeing this because they need to make it happen.
Please don’t tell me you’re buying into all this idiotic pre-hate…
The Snow Queen is a Scandinavian tale. Scandinavians (such as Danish and Swedes) are supposed to look white with blonde hair, which is what Disney’s designs are. I’m not trying to be racist here, but I don’t want the designs changed just for the sake of having non-white characters in a story that originates from a country of white-skinned people.
Seriously, political correctness and white people shaming have gotten out of hand…
meet the Sami, the indigenous people of Scandinavia, genetically connected to Inuit people:
and btw, it’s a fairy tail all on it’s own that majority of people who live there are blonde blue eyed, etc. most people have brown hair, surprise. Oh and also? at this point in reality, dark people live in those countries too. You do realize that those countries are not somehow exempt from dark people, right? I can only imagine how alienating it must be for a not-blonde, blue-eyed ~aryan dream~ that’s Swedish/Danish/Norwegian/Finnish to hear all this shit thrown around about how people from their country are SUPPOSED to look. Just like how gross it is when people assume I can’t be American because I’m not white.
Again: Disney has a history of transplanting stories from one culture into another and into animals (Oliver and Company for example). I have a feeling that if these were animals, you wouldn’t be so quick to defend how the animals weren’t staying true to its “Scandinavian” roots.
look inside yourself simba. figure out why you’re upset about dark people in your “white” fairy tale. and not the lions in your hamlet.
Let it go.
