Emily S. and Lauren C. posted a while back about the makeover of Disney’s princesses, and I just came across this interesting article from one of my new favorite sites, Refinery29. It’s titled, The Disturbing Anatomy of a Disney Princess, and written by Lexi Nisita. Accompanied with this article was a very interesting visual:
This reminded me of our discussion from class about Barbie and the presenting group’s post on the ways in which the anatomy of Barbie is completely unrealistic and is not humanly possible–with this Disney analysis being called “firmly anchored in fantasy land.”
What do you guys think? Check out the article, because there is another great visual by the artist who explored this idea. They created their own Disney Princess with a more “relatable” anatomy, showing that even when the character is still a cartoon, it can still represent reality.
