i’ve raged on frozen pretty hard and i’m still really angry about the movie but i really want to make it clear that i don’t think my opinions about it should change yours. my love for the fairy tale of the snow queen and the WAY it was changed for frozen is what backs up most of why i don’t like this movie. i don’t have any problems with changes from the source material, in fact i honestly like that sort of stuff to happen with movies!! it brings interesting takes to stories you love. but for me this is something along the same lines as the oz and great and powerful movie; the oz series is one that focuses on mainly women and their journeys and their struggles and while it is interesting to think about the oz tale in the point of view of the wizard it still just seems to null the female viewpoint of the movie. and while frozen DID make the movie about sisters — which i love!!! it still plays things VERY safe, and a lot of plot points that was the movie trying to challenge the regular disney tropes still end up being void; the prince ana falls in love with at first sight ending up not being what she thought he was doesn’t matter because she STILL has another guy to fall back on, the sister story doesn’t really change things for me because it STILL erases so many amazing female characters and replaces them with male figures to help guide ana along. and i’m not okay with that.
Same, but add on the fact that the fandom turns into a giant pile of racist dickbags at the very thought of people wanting brown people to star in the movie instead turning me as far away from the movie as I can get and it’s my thoughts entirely.
