We Might Meet Disney’s First LGBTQ Princess Sooner Than You Think
From Brave’s Scottish warrior Merida, to Polynesian sea sorceress Moana, the days of Disney's damsel in distress are officially over.
So far, so feminist. Top marks. But there's another issue that needs to be tackled. We’ve been waiting for quite some time to see the studio come out of the closet and give us our first openly LGBTQ prince or princess.
The community has been quietly represented in various movies - remember Francis the ladybug in A Bug’s Life? How about those antelopes bickering in the background of Zootopia? Or adorable Oaken the sauna owner and his even more adorable family in Frozen?
But it wasn't until we saw Frozen’s not-so subtle subtext that fans, who identified with Elsa's struggle, stood up and demanded fair representation.
We’re still waiting for that subtext to become actual text with a leading character, though. And finally - FINALLY - it looks like it might happen.
Speaking to The Huffington Post, Moana director Ron Clements revealed, “It seems like the possibilities are pretty open at this point.”
“It would be driven by a director or a directorial team that really wanted to push that and if [Disney Animation’s Chief Creative Officer] John Lasseter liked the idea, but I would say we haven’t ever really [had] restrictions placed on what we’ve done,” added co-director John Musker.
Do it Disney. Let it go.
