Meet Tiana, Disney’s first black princess

with 4 comments

Over the weekend Disney came out with a movie called “The princess and the frog.” This was Disney’s first movie with an African American princess playing the main role. I think this is good because Disney is showing signs of using diversity and not using there traditional tactics by just using white princesses.

  1. i wrote about this too. I think its a great thing too but disney should just go from no african american leading roles to a movie with every character being black. They should be adding diversity to all there movies not just one.

  2. I agree that they need to incorporate even more diversity, perhaps including interracial families and just exposing the topic more in general. This movie is a step forward though, because many black little girls will love Tiana because they look like her, and won’t wonder why all the Disney princesses were white.

  3. I agree that they need to incorporate diversity into their other movies. A lot of their other movies don’t show much diversity, but this is a good step forward. Hopefully it doesn’t stop here.

  4. I think this is great. But i would have to disagree that all the disney princesses were white. I mean, Jasmine from Aladdin and Pocahontas were considered princesses too right? Can’t say that Disney has, in its past, entirely disregarded including ethnic princesses. But I definitely do agree that introducing a new black princess is a step forward. 🙂
