I am really sick of this whole Frozen debacle on my dash.
We get it. Animation is hard, and the people doing the rendering are simply doing their job.
However that still does not address the point that women were omitted from the storyline, WoC are still horribly underrepresented in the princess franchise and the character still has huge round eyes and perfect hair and a tiny button nose, and they claim it’s ‘too hard’ to animate women well I’m sorry but they’ve done anthropomorphic cars and street pipes and monsters and everything under the sun so the fact ‘it’s hard’ is really not a valid excuse for the exclusion and lack of facial/racial diversity.
I have a headcanon that the Queen from Tangled is a huge bookworm like her daughter Rapunzel and that books are (or were) her escape. For eighteen years, her books distracted her from the pain of losing her only child.
One step further:
What if she also read stories to the children at orphanages because she wanted the feeling of reading to a child? Then one day a little boy said how much he loved the Tales of Flynnigan Rider. And she gave him that book because he was so sweet. He was so grateful that he promised that one day he would pay her back. And he did.
This made me all warm and fuzzy. Thanks guys. -chuckles-
