Angry Disney Fans Create Their Own Ethnic Princess After Latest Film Features Another ‘Generic’ White Female

Sadie Whitelocks, Daily Mail (London), July 2, 2013

Disney’s newest Caucasian female lead has been given an ethnic makeover by critics angered by her ‘generic’ appearance.

Elsa the Snow Queen, who stars in this fall’s fantasy-comedy animation Frozen, sports porcelain skin, long blonde hair, glassy blue eyes and a Princess-like sparkling gown.

But in a bid to highlight Disney’s lack of racial diversity Tumblr users have re-imagined the character as Tibetan, Mongolian, black and Inuit under the url and hashtag This Could Have Been Frozen.

Rachel McGuffin decided to redesign the Frozen film poster to show Elsa with dark skin.

She explained: ‘I was feeling rather hopeless about Disney’s whitewashing the past Princesses so I went ahead an racebent their future white characters.’

Meanwhile a Tumblr user under the name Spesiria, put forward a Mongolian-style Snow Queen as an alternative to the traditional image.

She is seen with dark skin and black hair wearing traditional dress consisting of a purple hat, a long caftan-like garment, sash, belt and boots.

The image is captioned: ‘Honestly, the concept art that I’ve seen of the Snow Queen disappoints me the most . . . When you Google image search “snow queen” (or “ice queen”), all you’ll see are those exact same designs.

‘There’s awfully little out of the box thinking going on here, Disney (oh how easily the genericness could have been avoided had they chosen a different setting).’

Another artist, Madi The Freckled, also imagined the Snow Queen in another setting – ‘Greenland during the 1940s’.

The fictional character is pictured in Inuit dress – skins, furs and sturdy boots – with a trusty dog as her companion.

And Heysawbones decided to set the tale in Tibet and cast the Snow Queen in traditional ‘Tibetan garb [which] can be very colorful! And pattern-y!’

Commenting on the collection of artwork, le-frenchzombie wrote that the ‘objective of this project is to raise awareness at the lack of representation of different cultures in Disney movies, or just animated movies in general.’

He continued: ‘Obviously since the 90s Disney has given numerous characters of colour and introduced stories that represent different countries and cultures, but the majority of their movies are still very European or American based.’

A 2009 study from the University of Central Florida in Orlando looked at the impact of animated characters on young girls’ self-image.

After watching clips of cartoon characters who were princesses, many of the girls involved in the research aged three to six, reported that they would need to change their hair color, clothes and skin color.

Frozen is loosely based on Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy tale The Snow Queen. It will be the 53rd animated feature in the Walt Disney Animated Classics series.

It will also feature the twelfth Disney princess, Anna the Ice Princess, who is brought to life with vocals provided by actress Kristen Bell.

The film is currently scheduled to be released on November 27, 2013 in the U.S..

Of the canon 12 Disney Princesses in the brand, including Anna from Frozen, eight are white.

  • Instead of complaining about it, why don’t they merely make their own film?
    Well, Disney is screwed if they capitulate. I’ll boycott anything of theirs if they go there.

    Non-whites(with the exception of north-east asians) have no culture to begin with, so this argument is moot.

    And the other point is – non-white women are ugly. Sure, you occasionally see a pretty one, but for the most part, the average Asian woman looks like a 12-year old boy and the average African or Aboriginal woman doesn’t even look human…

    • sbuffalonative

      Yes. Where are the great stories of these people? Where are the epic sagas of noble, selfless heroes? Do they even have a cultural story to tell?

      • Spartacus

        Raping 1 year-olds for magical powers, eating albinos or penises for magical powers… The entire so-called culture of blacks is just a simplified torture-porn version of Dungeons & Dragons.

          Black culture was portrayed quite well in the CGI version of King Kong, the part where the white people first arrive on the island.

After you have it, go to the Neverwinter Vault online and download their Community Expansion Pack (free) and the “Aribeth’s Redemption” trilogy (free) and the “Ravenloft” and “Sands of Fate” trilogies (also free).

            Don’t worry, I’m a gamer myself, I know about them 😀 Tho I prefer TBS games to RPGs.

          • I am frequently criticized for having married a Japanese gal, but Sayaka liked RPGs right away.

            I used to play combat flight sims online, especially Red Baron 3-D, always flying an SE-5a. One of my high school friends once said – as I pulled the bird into a steep climb, “That’s not an F-15; you can’t do that.” The Hun had already porked it trying to follow and I had him after I hammerhead stalled. My only gripe about the SE was that the rudder and elevators aren’t large enough for my preferred flying. I would always fight five of anything. In WW-2 flight sims, I preferred the P-47 Thunderbolt and P-38 Lightning, and suckered FW-190s into vertical rolling scissors. Sayaka didn’t play those.

            I prefer Neverwinter Nights because my wife and daughter like playing on the household LAN I set up.

            It beats the heck out of watching TV.

        Insofar as technical advancement, agreed. They’re knowledge of hunter gatherer living is unrivaled in the outback.

    I keep hearing about this great creative talent blacks have. Other than being entertainers, I have yet to see them create much of anything.

    Why don’t they start their own movie studios, write their own scripts, produce their own films if they believe this is what people want to see?

    The answer is they can’t.

    • The__Bobster

      What about the race films of 1915-1952? Surely they were responsible for those.

      Errr, never mind.

      _______

      As many as 500 race films were produced in the United States between 1915 and 1952.[2] As happened later with the early black sitcoms on television, race movies were most often financed by white-owned companies, such as Alfred N. Sack, and scripted by white writers. Many race films were produced by white-owned film companies outside the Hollywood-centered American film industry, making them some of the first financially successful independent films. One of the earliest surviving examples of a black cast film aimed at a black audience is A Fool and His Money (1912), directed by French emigree Alice Guy for the Solax Film Company.[3] The Ebony Film Company of Chicago, created specifically to produce black-cast films, was also headed by a white production team.[4]

    “Generic White Female”.

    What they want is a sassy black woman. In other words, they want a black stereotype.

    • Spartacus

      White women aren’t “generic”, quite the contrary. Most non-white women look like they’re damn clones, you can’t even tell them apart from each other , especially the asian ones.

      • Have you met many? The focus on black hair and epicanthic eyefolds suggests a sort of shallowness on your part. They don’t all look alike to me.

        • Spartacus

          We have a small Chinatown near Bucuresti, and they all look the same to me…

          • Europeans don’t all look the same. My high school girlfriend had a magnificent Dutch nose, while mine is typically Celtic. I only have to shave twice a week, due to Amerind ancestry, and I tan disturbingly quickly. My hands are what even my mother look like they belong on a serial-killer. My hair – and my daughter’s – shows a pronounced agouti gene.

          • Spartacus

            I know Europeans don’t all look the same, I was referring to non-white women. I really can’t tell Asian women apart. Dunno if it’s me or them that’s to blame… I’d recognize Hitomi Tanaka any day, but not because of her face 🙂

  • bigone4u

    Fairy tales were created by loving, gentle, benevolent white people in Europe to benefit white youngsters, so other groups are late to the table on this cultural innovation. If other groups want to create their own fairy tales, fine. Just don’t expect white persons to kowtow to you and create your Little Black Riding Hood for you..

  • italian guy

    Generic? do these people realize that Europeans are people with their own ethnic features right? And not only that, but those traits are among the most rare in the entire world, Elsa (funny that in Italian the elsa is the hilt of a sword) is a beautiful Nordic woman, what’s the big deal? you can see them everywhere in Europe, Australia and the States… those people are simply anti-whites, that’s all there is to it.
    This things are truly annoying, why no one points out their racism? if i want a white protagonist I’m a Nazi, if they wants non-whites protagonists they are progressive and morally superior, this is so stupid.

    • gemjunior

      I agree with you that it is our responsibility to point out their racism and call them out on it. If they call you a racist or white supremacist then just shake your head in disgust.

  • I type in “Snow Queen” images, and certain things are constant about her. Her age varies, but no matter how far back she is depicted, she is always white, dressed in white or some other color associated with ice, with blonde hair, blue eyes, and is considered attractive instead of scary.
    1916 Snow Queen:

    • gemjunior

      That might be because she was probably a Lapp or a Finn. That would make sense as an Ice Princess must necessarily come from a snowy, icy area. And that’s probably where the blond hair and blue eyes come in. The story could have drifted south to other parts of northern Europe. It never drifted to the equator, and the nigs weren’t creative enough to have a mythology of their own.

  • A black “Snow Queen”? That makes as much sense as a White “Tar Baby”.

    • The__Bobster

      Hey, there’s an idea. Make a Tar Baby movie.

    • Sloppo

      Perhaps Disney should make a new character called a “Tar Queen”. Instead of originating from some place like Sweden, they could say she came an African tar pit.

    • MawellAxel

      the Fluff A Nutter baby

  • This is the very first known image of the Snow Queen, illustrated by Vilhelm Pedersen (1820-1859).

  • knuckledragger

    A Snow Queen of Color might be mistaken for a cocaine dealer. Then we’d have a diskermination lawsuit to contend with as well…

  • tech

    I don’t quite understand. If we’re “all the same/race is a social construct”, why would they need to change the color at all?

  • The__Bobster

    I’m guessing that Disney got tired of deeply discounting their Nubian Princess dolls.

    • bigone4u

      Actually, it would be a useful academic study to determine what the price has to be to sell nonwhite dolls. By limiting the production run to match the nonwhite population, excess inventory can be eliminated, but the design and marketing costs of nonwhite dolls would have to be amortized over a smaller number of sales. Rationally, nonwhite dolls should be a specialty item, but major toy producers are probably forced to produce them in the name of political correctness. I think the unstated goal re Disney is to force Disney to produce more nonwhite characters.

      • Romulus

        The American girl dolls come to mind. The spectrum of the races is represented.

        • Anglokraut

          American Girl used to have just four: Felicity, a 9 y/o girl from Colonial Virginia; Kirstin, a 9 y/o girl from Sweden whose family was homesteading the American upper-Midwest; Samantha, a 9 y/o girl living in New York City in 1904; and Molly, a 9 y/o girl in 1944 living through WWII. All White. The diversity started to creep in during the late 1990s, and I suspect the brand was bought by a bigger company with more money to develop the merch, but had diversity quotas to attain.

          The original American Girls are really good books, though.

  • Anglokraut

    Disney had to learn some hard lessons after its “Princess and the Frog” bomb, starting with the principle of cinematic escapism. Also, I had to look up the Disney Princesses, and I wasn’t aware that Mulan had been upgraded to a princess; I guess that was covered in Mulan 2, because I saw Mulan, and it was implied that her captain was romantically interested, and that captain wasn’t royalty either. Pocahontas was a chief’s daughter, but not royalty. Is it even mentioned that she marries an Englishman, and dies a Christian?

    Disney has thrown some real duds lately, and they never seem to learn the lesson: White characters sell, and non-White bombs, with two exceptions that I can recall at this time: Princess Jasmine and Fa-Mulan. The others are not only commercial disappointments, but cultural non-starters. LIttle girls still dress up as Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, Ariel, and Belle twenty-two years and counting after Disney’s last truly great animation effort (Beauty and the Beast). Pocahontas, Tiana, Lilo, and Esmeralda are unthinkable as Halloween options, the last dolls to sell, and the first to be sent off to Goodwill when the toys have to be culled.

    Dear blacks, you are living in a nation founded and built by whites who make up 65% of the population…nearly 3/4 and 90% not too long ago. What do you expect? It’s like a person going over a stranger’s house and expecting them to have pictures of the stranger in their house. Huh? Blacks are 14% and demand to be treated as if they are 90%. Same with hispanics.

      Blacks are too lazy and stupid to create their own characters. Blacks lack creativity. That is why they would rather take traditionally White characters like Peter Parker and James Bond and try to turn them Black. Although thank Goodness so far they have been unsuccessful at that.

      • ms_anthro

        You’re mistaken if you think blacks have anything to do with the revisionism of our cultural icons from White to non-White. Blacks are used by the usual suspects behind the scenes as a battering ram against us. They don’t have the power or the intelligence to do what is being done.

    I don’t mind, if Disney uses black female characters if the character is truly based on a character who happened to be black in the actual story,

    But deliberately changing the ethnicity of the character simply because they want to make sure non-white viewers do not get upset is cowardly and wrong

    • sbuffalonative

      That’s just it. They don’t have any historic myths and legends. They have nothing. No great epics of noble, selfless heroes. Nothing. The best they can come up with is Shaka Zulu. After that, they have to expropriate whites like Cleopatra (Greek) and claim she was black.

      The fact is, with all the creative talent blacks tell us they posses, they can’t even come up with viable contemporary black characters. Shaft, for heavens sake, was written by a white man.

      • gemjunior

        “Roots” was also written by a white man (The African) under a different title (The African); I forgot the author’s name. It was totally plagiarized by Alex Hailey – he even had to give back money made from the sale. They aren’t the most inventive race of people, as we know, but they will tell you they had advanced civilizations long before whites and then whites destroyed them and stole their “secrets”. And since then, no African based person has ever been able to come up with anything, ever, that would indicate that possibility. I even saw a piece on youtube about how Africans made it to the Americas before anyone else. They sure are laboring under serious delusions about themselves. And they have deep envy and hate for white people.

        • sbuffalonative

          I have long wondered how you can ‘steal’ someone’s culture in a way that makes it impossible for them to continue using their culture.

          I’ve often said the handbook of civilization has been written. No one has to re-invent the wheel. Why is it impossible for these people to see what works in other cultures and apply it to themselves?

          The only explanation is that they can’t. Even when given pre-built countries of colonial Africa or cities in the US, they can’t seem to make things work.

    Yeah, as if there are so many castles, knights and princesses in Africa.

    Don’t like it? If you non-Whites want cartoon characters that “look like you,” feel free to put up the investment money it takes to create studios and make movies, use your own technology, find non-White animators and then promote, market and distribute to your own people the efforts of the two years it took you to finish your product.

    Oh, that’s right, your cultures are stuck in the past and we Whites are expected to provide these services to you.

    Maybe that princess is really just a white man who “transgendered” himself into a princess making him completely, government-approved PC.

    Maybe Disney could create a new princess based on Rachel Jeantel? They could call it “Rachael Jeantel, the Queen of Cursive Writing!”

    Happy now?

    Boo Hoo. Cry me a river.

      didn’t the animated Tarzan movie have an ape voiced by whoopie goldber? There’s an animated character that looks like them.

      • Bon, From the Land of Babble

        She also voiced one of the hyenas in The Lion King.

        Hey, if the part fits…

        It was Rosie O’Donnell in Tarzan.

          oh, you’re right, that was a big white ape voicing a big black ape

    Well, I believe the medium of film was a white endeavor as were so many things. Since the same people recorded their legends, myths and fables they were sometimes used as the basis of the films. Primarily northern European in origin, the characters often committed the unforgivable crime of being fair skinned, blond, and blue-eyed. Since this was common in men of influence in the western culture (the most influential culture in history), they applied their own standards of beauty to the princesses and any other women and girls in the production. It’s that simple, and their is and was absolutely nothing wrong with it. It’s just another manifestation of the anti-white narrative which has become annoyingly common. The problem is that the “ethnics” who have the hubris to loudly complain and insist that their cultural choice of princess take precedence over the original used by the creators. It’s like so many other things and gives me yet another reason to despise these groups. As if I needed one…. Why can’t we see a film made by mestizos about a tribal princess who does cool things like grind corn on a stone and have adventures hiding from her father and uncle, who are fighting for her hand in ‘marriage’? Or an African tribal princess’ story about a white man she falls in love with and begs her father to release him rather than the planned hacking to death with machetes and put into the dinner….. These sound really interesting and culturally enriching and vibrant and diverse. Not bland like whitey’s classics that have lasted over centuries.

    Here’s a black snow queen……

      The blow queen? Lol.

      Whitney Houston sure did love the “snow”.

    If the riff raff of the world wish to see more princessess of color perhaps they can either create their own Disney or mythology. The English tale of the princess and the frog has already been ruined by converting to the blacks. It enrages me to see the africanization of european,norse,roman and greek mythology. The blacks dont have squat to do with european history, except accompanying the effin moors in the mass murder of the celts and goths in what is now called spain.

    I was born in the early 1980s, and the first Disney movie I can remember seeing in the theaters was the re-release of Snow White. I, like most little girls my age watched Belle tame a Beast (Disney’s best movie *ever*), Ariel live when she should have died (as the author intended), and watched in fascination as Princess Jasmine and Aladdin introduced kids to an Arab culture with barely-there Islam thrown in.

    Then Disney threw a bunch of clunkers: Pocahontas was straight-up anti-White revisionist history (but I was 14 when it came out, and was more concerned about starting high school then catching Disney’s latest.) The Hunchback of Notre-Dame is a tough one for me; I saw the movie and loved it–some of Disney’s best songs are in this movie–and was inspired to read the book. I got a very good translation, and read it raptly, only to find that the gypsy wasn’t supposed to be brown–she was a stolen French girl, raised by gypsies. Oh, and (spoiler alert) EVERYONE DIES…except the captain, Phoebus.

    Disney then came back to familiar waters, and gave us Hercules–a movie that gave us sassy Black soul-singers as the Muses, but the heroine was a feisty and complex Greek maiden, which helped keep me interested. Next was Mulan, which I remember primarily because that was the year of Asian-inspired movies: Mulan, Rush Hour, Godzilla all come to mind right away for 1998. It wasn’t bad, and the animation was quite good–but I didn’t know anything about Chinese history, so I couldn’t really relate to the story.

    That really sets up Disney’s pattern now: Tarzan, Treasure Planet, Lilo& Stitch, etc. They test the waters with a non-White lead character, ticket sales drop, and the next movie has White leads. Rinse and repeat.

      It means gone home to plant your roots.

    The story is based on European folklore. What are we going to do next? Condemn European folklore as racist because 99% of its characters are European (big surprise). The irony about these people too, is that they’re calling the character “generic” and “superficial.” Yet, to make such an assumption, that she’s going to be a certain way because of her exterior appearance, is about as superficial as it gets. All female Disney characters regardless of skin color (Mulan, Pocohontas, etc.) act the same anyways.

  • rebellisMMXII

    I’m still amazed there were no black Hobbits, black Elves, black Dwarfs or, using the term loosely, black Humans infesting the bright side of Middle Earth.

    • There are black elves, with coal-colored skin and white hair. The Drow are also completely evil.

    • jane johnson

      Plenty of black orcs, though.

  • Anglokraut

    The songwriter for Disney in the 1980s was gay. When I learned of this, “Part of Your World” from “The Little Mermaid” took on a whole new meaning–a much sadder meaning.

    • The__Bobster

      Who do you think wrote the songs for “The Lion King”?

      • Anglokraut

        Howard Ashman was the lyricist for TLM, and he was dead from AIDS before TLK reached a level of production that would have them thinking about songs. Tim Rice and Elton John worked with Alan Menken to make TLK’s music.

        Ashman’s last movie was “Beauty and the Beast”.

  • How about a new Disney film, “Princess of the Projects”.

    This could feature an obese “African American” woman, protecting her family from bubble headed and Barbie-like white news reporters, with some CGI 3D dogs (expanded by artistic license into being mystical wolves) being set upon the invaders into ‘their ancient lands’.

    I am sure a sympathetic tale could be woven around this story, perhaps with some musical features thrown in (like the pop song “who let the dogs out?!”); and it would give the liberals a taste of the reality and ‘societal mix’ they are so desperate to convey.

  • Anglokraut

    I didn’t say it was a poor film. I said that ticket sales typically don’t support the venture. I’ve also heard that Lilo & Stitch is very good–but I wasn’t inclined to see it.

  • Anglokraut

    Religion in the form of having to compete with Pixar and Dreamworks for the animation audience, you mean! Alas, Disney now owns Pixar AND Marvel, and I can only cringe at the thought of what that will do for the quality of the movies.

    It’s “cool” to be anti-white. These people to pretend that whites did not develop or create this great country, and we have politicians that wish to let more in. We are turning our country over to those that will never be able to keep America alive, it is already disintegrating before our eyes.

    Rapunzel? Or she does not count because she wasn’t exactly a princess

  • The__Bobster

    Where I used to live, snow stayed white for about an hour. Then it started looking like the Rainbow Coalition.

  • This reminds me of a “Life After People” scenario playing out right in front of our eyes. It drives home the lesson that humanity need not become literally extinct for these scenarios to happen. Perhaps we should read some racial dog whistling into the “Life Without People” series as much as we did into “Idiocracy.”

  • vladdy1

    Why don’t they start their own “Disney”?

    On a different note, how come it’s “Free Tibet,” which means save their unique culture by not allowing Tibet to be overrun with Chinese. but it’s not “Free-Amy-White-Country”? Just sayin’.

    And I’m allowed. ;cos I used to have a “Free Tibet” Stocker on my car..(A long time ago.) That kinda fizzled out, didn’t it? Maybe if the Tibetans had been gay…).
