I'd always been somewhat pleased that the cartoon character my daughter latched onto was the intelligent, intrepid Dora. For four seasons on Nickelodeon (and then its sister station Noggin, and then CBS), this school-age Latina role model eschewed nearly every girly-girl gender stereotype, the pink T-shirt that hangs loosely over her realistically rounded 8-year-old belly being the only token element of her nascent femininity. Dora's brain is touted as her main asset (she's bilingual; she solves jungle-based brainteasers), but she's also ruggedly athletic (she's the star of both her baseball and soccer teams; she never blinks before shimmying up a banyan tree or scaling a volcano). Dora's esteem-building, multiculti adventures are the polar opposite of the glitter-spewing, cutesy-fests -- think Rainbow Brite and My Little Pony -- that women of my own generation grew up with.
But he also realized that, as the parent of a princess, he was not alone. The widespread nature of the princess phenomenon made itself known to Levine one day at a local playground. \"There was my daughter, traipsing through the park dressed like a princess, when I looked around and I started noticing others,\" he explains. \"I assumed their parents were undoubtedly tripping out like I was.\" In an experimental attempt to bring these royal families together, Levine decided to throw a princess party -- for anyone who wanted to come. He posted a sign announcing that the very next day would be the First Annual Prospect Park Princess Picnic. And with less than 24 hours' notice, 25 little girls -- each in full costume -- showed up for a party. \"People always talk about 'the magic of Disney,'\" Levine says. \"Well, that's the magic of Disney: It's addictive. It's like crack for 5-year-olds.\"

The queen left her in great trouble at all she had seen and heard, and took counsel as to what she should do to defeat the princess. They told her that if some fairy or some enchanter had taken her under their protection, it would only irritate them to torment her further, and it would he best to try to discover her secret.
Are you a Disney princess lover Is the sparse release schedule of classic-style Disney fairytale movies getting you down Frozen was almost two years ago now, and nobody does the formula quite like the house of mouse. (Those who have tried don't live long to regret it. Lookin' at you, Quest for Camelot.) Isn't there something new to fill the void while you wear out your yellowed clamshell VHS tapes of fairytale classics gone by
Well, look no further than Snow White with the Red Hair! Despite the very mildest smatterings of anime trappings, this sharply-written and magically immersive Studio Bones series is Disney princess crack in all the right ways, and unlike the grand majority of shojo anime, it's also beautifully animated! Visually, nothing can compare to a Disney feature film, but it does look way better than Disneytoon TV shows looked in the 90s, especially ones with princesses in them! (That's a low bar if you're not aware. Some parts of childhood are better left forgotten.)
Since it's adapted from a shojo manga of the same name (and needs to fill many episodes to come), this isn't a straight re-telling of the Snow White story, but a hodgepodge of fairytale elements from all over, smartly distilled down into a story that feels new and familiar all at once. As the title implies, Snow White is a redhead in this version, and her rare beauty is coveted by the kingdom's prince, a foppish brute who rides a perfect line of flamboyant non-threat that makes him entertaining in that oh-so-Disney way. When she is summoned to the castle to become his concubine, she cuts off her red hair and escapes into the forest to turn more tropes from the Snow White tale on their head by running into her true prince, a roguish rapscallion with lovable comic relief bodyguards. After she uses her knowledge of herbs to heal his wounds, he takes the poison apple in her stead, and through a few heartwarming metaphors about love and fate, the two conquer the evil prince and are brought together to seek new adventure over the horizon. (Okay, the good prince has also developed an \"immunity to iocane powder\" so to speak, which makes the apple less immediately deadly.)
In fact, the only thing missing from this spiritual successor to Disney princessdom is the presence of literal magic. No magical elements have been introduced yet, but I can hold out hope for talking animal companions down the road, right
Hmm...wait a second. Why did Mother Gothel disintegrate Is it just because Rapunzel lost her healing hair Does this mean that everyone who was ever healed by the magical flower's power got un-healed That would mean that Eugene's hand would have to become scraped again, since Rapunzel healed that with her hair while they were off having their adventure. And what about Rapunzel's real mom She was healed by the curative powers of the flower as well. Doesn't this mean that when Rapunzel returns home to the castle, only her father, the king, should be there to greet her It was visually cool to watch Gothel's slow transformation into a crumbling, wasted person, but it does not make a lot of sense upon further reflection.
The king and queen must have sent a gazillion guards out searching for Rapunzel when she was taken from her cradle. These guards would have scoured the area close to the castle. And believe me, Rapunzel's tower is close to the castle, as evidenced by Flynn Rider's flight there when he stole the princess' crown. It only took a fairly short chase from the castle for Flynn to get to the entrance to the valley. Sure, he stumbled onto the vine-covered entrance, but it didn't take much to find the place. Mother Gothel definitely needs to take some lessons on finding perfect hiding places. Or maybe she doesn't, seeing as how no one managed to suss out her \"hidden\" tower for that long.
The most famous Animation Studio in the world had been struggling for years. It was developing another princess movie, the traditionally animated Princess and the Frog, but there were people that thought the genre was dead. What Disney wanted to do next was a kind of satirical animated movie, in the vein of Enchanted, that made fun of Disney tropes. It thought this was the only way to bring Disney into the modern era. Luckily for us, Glen Keane was there to fight for the fairytale, for true love and for good old Disney magic.
The new creative team set out to crack a new story and bring Disney into the modern age of cinema. To do this, they looked at classics like Cinderella and Pinocchio to get inspired but they constantly reminded themselves they were trying to entertain a modern audience. The story moves faster, Rapunzel is much more active and relatable than princesses of old and the entire movie is just full of humor and heart.
Author/illustrator Sarah Gibb's version of \"Rapunzel.\" Gibb's illustrations, with frequent use of silhouettes, are stunning. She's drawn from the classic Brother's Grimm fairytale (rather than the modern, Disney re-imagining), which satisfies Eloise's appetite for princess stories while still giving us a story with substance. 153554b96e
