Disney’s First Black Princess
What is wrong with this picture?
Some of my loyal readers might remember a few months back my lamenting the fact that there were no Black Superheroes on the big screen (See that post here). Well for those little girls who Disney princesses are a big thing, it seems the long wait for Disney to finally have a black princess is coming to an end. Tiana in the Princess and the Frog.
I am just happy Disney hasn’t given up completely on hand drawn big screen animated movies.Now the next big controversy will be that her prince is a white guy. But he isn’t white (at least in the classically defined state your race here confines). He is actually Brazilian (or at least Hispanic) since Bruno Campos is the voice of Prince Naveen and he purposefully is showcasing an accent. Either way the topic of interracial marriage will come up. I say baby steps. Soon we might actually see a King George Ford onscreen instead of just in his mind. (inside joke)
