As you've probably heard, Halle Bailey has been cast as the new Ariel - a decision that has been met with some very polarising views. Some members believe that she will be amazing, and this is a good step towards representation and diversity. Others believe that the casting should be more accurate to what the cartoon looks like.
I personally have no issue with the casting. I am unfamiliar with her work as an actress, but I know she has a great singing voice, and I believe she must have the skills if she was picked for the role. A common argument I see is that "they're forcing diversity", "they have an agenda" and "SJW", when in reality, I believe they simply chose her based on her talents.
Unlike characters like Merida, Pocahontas, Mulan and…Read more >
Recent reports and rumours have speculated that Elsa may have a girlfriend in the upcoming sequel. Many fans previously predicted this, with Elsa's ice powers acting as a metaphor for homosexuality (has to hide in shame, can't tell anyone her secret), with "Let it Go" acting as an anthem of self-acceptance. While I think the idea of a gay character would be awesome in a Disney film, I don't they'll fully out Elsa as gay because it would be considered too controversial. I think they'll probably plant small seeds, that hint she's gay, without actually saying it. Hopefully I'm wrong about this, because representation is very important, whether it's ethnicity, sexuality or other factors (still waiting for a disabled Disney princess). What does…Read more >
So it's been recently announced that That's So Raven is getting a spinoff. This is what we know about the plot so far:

I'm into Disney movies but I haven't really watched Disney shows since I was a kid and That's So Raven was the BEST show in my opinion. It used to be the only reason I went on Disney Channel and I was OBSESSED with it and was hoping for a reunion. I know that it will be in the style of a Girl Meets World spin-off style.
Here is my wishlist from what I want to see:
- Appearance from Eddie, Chelsea, Cory and Raven's parents - So far only Raven and her two kids are con…
This is my first blog so please bare with me. So I guess Disney has started a trend of live-action remakes of their original films. Cinderella has comeout and Sleeping Beauty is about to be released. There are rumours of Mulan and The Little Mermaid being remade into live-action films too.
Personally I'm neutral to the idea. Upon announcement of Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty, I thought to myself "Oh gosh, whats the point of this", but after watching Cinderella, I thought it was quite good and really enjoyed it. I feel like they are quite unnecessary, but I do enjoy seeing live-action versions of some of my favourite cartoon films, especially if it has more detail and context than the original film could ever have. Although I would like to …Read more >
