Disney and creativity go against the masses for creating real human versions of princesses.
Recently, HER confirmed to play Belle in the ABC special to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the release of Disney’s animated version of Beauty and the Beast .
HER expressed special feelings about being the one to take on this role: “I can’t believe I’m going to be part of the Beauty and the Beast legacy. The world will see a black Belle of Filipino descent! I I’ve always wanted to be a Disney princess, and I’ll be working with two amazing directors, Hamish Hamilton and Jon M. Chu. It’s been a dream come true and I couldn’t be more grateful.”
Before that, a controversy broke out when Disney made the decision to cast black singer Halle Bailey as the mermaid Ariel in the live-action version of The Little Mermaid. Comments from fans who object to “dyeing” the princesses think that this manufacturer is going backwards, taking creativity to defy listening to comments.
Rachel Zeglar, who plays Snow White, faced a similar controversy when she appeared in the live-action version of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. A wave of discussion broke out when fans thought that the actress was different from the original image. No one recognized the princess with skin as white as snow, hair as black as ebony, lips as red as lipstick, … in Rachel Zeglar.
Many points of view indicate that Disney is deliberately creating controversy with skin color to attract attention. Is it possible that the original works are losing their appeal, so the producer has to constantly “launch tricks”, using the pretext of fighting against skin color discrimination to bring products that are different from the audience’s expectations.
