No, I don’t watch it but yeah I heard about the casting and I’m mega excited :D
Well I was debating with myself just yesterday if I should watch it. I stood in front of the AMC in Downtown Disney. I had two whole hours to spare before I shift started. And I looked at the promos and I questioned myself “should I give it a go?”. I looked into my heart and after alot of soul searching and I was like nah.
Hans Christian Andersen’s The Snow Queen.
cause, to be honest, I’m kinda bummed Frozen isn’t gonna be about a warm-hearted, reindeer riding, snow trudging, badass little girl on a quest to save her special little dude.
because this is really quite beautiful
So I made this thing and I’m pretty proud of it, haha.
Some more concept for Frozen in Alaska. Thank you so much for all the lovely compliments on the last set! I’m not worthy (^////^) Hope you like these too :)

First, this looks pretty solid. Second, I have been wanting a “Black Girl Period Piece” as my friend Cameron calls for it forever. Third, why do I have to wait until May?

relevant to this blog, relevant to everything
Talking to an awesome artist friend of mine about Disney and representation, she came up with this and I thought your followers, particularly the ones who’ve submitted such wonderful redesigns of Anna and Elsa, might be interested.
This is still in the fledgling stages, as we literally just talked about this today, but I encourage anyone even remotely interested to follow her and make your interest (and any questions and such you might have) known.
so i’m pretty sure all my followers and their brother know how much i detest the character designs/entire concept i’ve seen of frozen and i decided to finally stop bitching about it and actually throw my own designs out there!
i think a kazakh/central asian-ish setting would’ve been really cool! and i like the idea of the heroine having an older brother
zuko scar and missing arm includedshe has to rescue!! and i think i would’ve stuck more closely to the original story with mostly female characters helping her through her adventure?? but i didn’t come up with designs for them (the robber girl and and i think there’s a princess and a prince in the story that help her?)
anyway yeah omg long descrip i’m sorry ( ﾟ,_ゝﾟ) poc princess initiative is my life force
This is very interesting point of view and I completely agree with it. If you think in the large scale of things, children all over the world get their first film exposure through Disney movies. And since Disney (although an American company) caters to children all over the world (and makes loads of money in that process) shouldn’t it at least try to incorporate representation in their films and moreover fairytales?
I think my least favorite argument is the reasoning that all the of Disney’s fairytales are of European origin and therefore presumably must omit people of color. Since a.) Europe is not made of all white people and has had people of color for AGESSSS and b.) not all of their fairytales have actually only European origins. For example the earliest mention of Cinderella-like story comes all the way back in Egypt. And there’s a Eastern Asian version of a Snow White tale. There’s also multiple Sleeping Beauty and Rapunzel-like tales that are necessarily European.
The notion that the Brothers Grimm’ or other European writers are the inventors of said popular tales or myths is such an ignorant assumption of Disney fandom.
But yes I completely agree with your statement, Disney should only TRY and cater more to their market.
This is the concept I pulled together for a Latina Gretta. I’m disregarding any adapting Frozen has done to the fairy tale and focusing on the original and working from there.
I’m still considering where I want to set the story.
