Part of this hilarious fake trailer for Disney’s blockbuster movie Frozen is an amusing critique of the current trend in girl-power narratives from the land of Mickey Mouse. I’m all for girls learning independence and self reliance. Thank god Disney is done telling girls to wait for their prince.
That being said, at about 1:45 minutes in, the folks at Honest Trailers deconstruct the subtext about men (princes and otherwise) in Frozen. Watch it. It may get you thinking how male characters are taking quite a turn both in Frozen and in other Disney girl power flicks like Brave. The princes in that movie were nice but laughable oafs. A new trend perhaps? Princes as motivation for independence?
