    An Examination of post-Colonial Hawaii as seen in Disney's Lilo and Stitch

    Analyse aspects of the film franchise and television series that depict the reality of a post-colonial Hawaiian culture. Specifically, how is Hawaiian culture present, represented, and changed in Lilo and Stitch, and what symbols and motifs are present that affect this?

    • Think about how the history of Hawaii, colonized Hawaii, and post-colonial Hawaii affect the culture. How does the history affect the people, the language, the belief system or morals? And how does that affect Lilo and Nani personally? How do Lilo and Nani represent the Hawaiian culture? How do their words and their actions, reflect the culture? And how does their influence impact Stitch? What does that mean about sharing cultures? – AutamnDarling 8 years ago

    I had never even heard of this film before reading this article, but now I’m going to have to find it. Thanks for the good read!

    Strange Magic: 5 Reasons this Soon-to-be Cult Classic is Worth Your Time

    There are a couple places in this article where I believe you start to go -off topic, but otherwise pretty well put together.

    Something else that might be interesting to make note of: unlike a lot of shooter-type and adventure games–which are played in first-person mode, the Tomb Raider games are third person. In first-person games, the player assumes the role of the main character, but in games like Tomb Raider, the player is separated from the character and does not see through their eyes. In this manner, Lara essentially becomes an object that that the player gets to toy-around with. And since video games were largely marked exclusively to boys during Tomb Raider’s release, it comes as no surprise that the ability to look at Lara’s rear the whole game was a selling point.

    Great article, and excellent research on the subject material. When I started reading, I was afraid that it was going to go in a rather negative direction, but I positively agree with what you’re saying here. i don’t believe that the company is ready to make anything that specifically revolves around an LGBTQ subject. I do believe, however, that they are at a point where they can begin to introduce explicitly queer characters into their films; they should slowly begin to introduce characters who are /actually/ LGBTQ into the films, at least as background characters, instead of allowing them to just be queer-read into the film.
