No, Elsa didn't need a man and the princesses are correct. Everyones all like UGH no hispanics/ blacks in Frozen. It's in the 1400's in Norway, there are no black people or hispanics in Norway!

Yes and no. Almost all disney princess movies include the part where the prince saves the princess, concluding that woman can't figure out anything themselves and need a man. However some movies do not. Some disney movies portray important lessons for kids. This really is The Great Debate.
(Thank you @TheSortingHat for helping me realize that MANY disney movie have the man-saves-woman theme.)

Yup.
Princesses waiting around all day for a prince - you do that in real life no one will come for you. You have to make an effort
No mixed race couples
All pretty good-looking people are good, and ugly people are evil. Can we have an ugly princess? Or a beautiful villain to show not everyone are what they seem?
I like brave because Merida goes out, makes mistakes, copes with it and escapes a bear without even a hint of a prince. No marriage at the end either no one is perfect See More▼

I agree with all of your points except for one because there ar some beautiful villains like snow whites evil stepmother. I think you should substitute beautiful with beautiful and VAIN.

I think that young children are placed more in front, so re making movies is making me more in interested in Disney films! But I would also like a little more realistic films. Where teens go to school or do normal stuff not just 100% fake.

I would like a disney princess that lives a modern teenage life, goes to school, has a ipod, and NO PRINCE, but the villan would be her ex because hd cheats on her and beats her, then the girl has to fight cancer, the "prince" should be a boy thats in her class that shes never talked to.

they are fun but sometimes it DOES send a bad message to little kids.

No. They are fun for kids as long as other people copy the movie. Those movies might be bad.

Well... I don't think there stereotypes but i think some of them a a bit of a a bad example. Cause not every prince is really tough and manly. But their all right with it.

Stereotypes? Do you not mean examples? Because I should know a few that turned out to be bad examples for the younger viewers; look at a few of the Disney villians, they could just murder eachother for no clear reasons! Black cauldron, is that one? Their canine-companion commited suicide but I am not sure if that was a Disney movie.

Hm, oh well.

Disney fan forever!

Yes! So true. Disney is pretty accurate, and it just gets on my nerves. I like your idea of them having illnesses to watch them be strong and overcome tough times.

Disney is probably too fixated with classical fairy tales, princesses were often known to stay in the tower during the medieval times; bet they're trying to keep it almost accurate, as they most likely did in Brave.

Something I would like to see, princesses with disabilities or illnesses.

Yes, true. Another thing that bugged me is that they don't encourage girls to go off and do their own thing! The princesses just sit around, waiting for their prince to come. Even in Brave. Can't they make a movie WITHOUT a princess?

No, in Brave Merida isn't waiting for a prince, actually. She's living her life. Just because she happens to live in a castle and her mom expects her to marry a prince doesn't mean that that's what she wants.

Yeah, true. I see your point. I do think, though, they could set examples to get girls to go outside! Play! Find their prince!

Well, to me it's just a movie. I love Disney, don't get me wrong, but they make movies to entertain, not necessarily to teach young girls about life or anything. But that's just me.
