The Disintegration of Your Favorite Disney Princess

19 12 2009

What if your favorite Disney Princess didn’t really live happily ever after once the movie ended? Did you ever think about if she was thriving to live in today’s society?

Well thanks to Dina Goldstein, we no longer have to debate about the future of a Disney Princess that was a lot more realistic than depicted in the films that we all watched as a child.

She was inspired by how infatuated young girls are with Disney Fairy Tale characters. These films can be seen as problematic because all of the portrayals are unrealistic. How is it that a beautiful women is always victimized throughout the story until “Price Charming” comes and saves them from this troubled┬ápredicament. Especially the outcome isn’t as joyous as in the Disney version.

“In all of the images the Princess is placed in an environment that articulates her conflict.” -Dina Goldstein

For example, one of her photos shows Rapunzel losing her long beautiful hair in a hospital bed. Another is of Belle from Beauty and The Beast under the knife in hopes of preserving her sexy. In my opinion, there is nothing cooler than presenting a realistic perspective on such a well-known story that is embraced because of how fictitious it is.
