    Princes and Masculinity in Disney

    Analyze what idea of masculinity is shown in Disney films where princes are portrayed. What are the negative or toxic ideas of masculinity that are shown and what are some examples that may criticize toxic masculinity.

    • I think disney wants more princesses. They wants girl to feel empowered and portrayed more as heroes and not only men can be heroes too. They want more heroines. They want Girl Power. Disney doesn’t show a lot of masculinity. I feel like the only prince movie that made was Aladdin but he wasn’t a prince. There was a princess who was Princess Jasmine. I think disney shows masculinity as a man being the true love kiss when really its not always about that and they showed that on Frozen. It can be close relationships like sisters loving each others. What if a disney princess was with a girl not a guy. – 2klonewolf 2 months ago
    • Great topic! It's true, Disney has been spending a lot of time on their princesses, and while that is definitely a good thing, there is plenty of room to evolve the princes as well. Where's the artistic prince? The gay prince? A prince CRYING, for goodness' sake? It would be great to include a section at the end on examples of how Disney's portrayal of masculinity could improve. – Heather Lambert 2 months ago

    I didn’t mind the book it is an interesting take, though I don’t believe better or more rich than Austen’s actual novel. The film bothers me because they make the sisters sexualized and kick ass but they don’t follow any of the emotion that makes Austen’s story so appealing. I really dislike the part where Elizabeth cries after Darcy snubs her at the ball, her ambivalent attitude to his insults is powerful and an important part of their relationship that keeps you invested in the story. Just my opinion and well done with the article!

    Very well done and it is so interesting to see how all of these stories have that same trope and what that may mean!

    I think it is great exemplification about the legend of the vampire in Cinemas. I think ones I would add are definitely Interview with A Vampire and Queen of the Damned. Anne Rice was important in the vampire novel world and the films I would say are too, not the greatest films of all time but definitely add something to the conversation.
