I’m thinking about princesses

Apparently, I’m still not over Cinderella.

Whenever the soundtrack of Beauty and the Beast plays, I can’t help but go back to that Cinderella movie from 2015. They did a “remake” but Cinderella didn’t get an “upgrade” whatsoever.

Beauty and the Beast, Belle

Belle is now an inventor. (Her father became an artist.) She’s always had this, “I’m not like all the other girls in this town” thing going on but now she builds things. She had this washing machine that the rest of the women in that poor provincial town could only gawk at.

Tangled, Rapunzel at the tavern

Rapunzel learned to think for herself. She went out (while battling inner conflict), had her time at a tavern, and made friends with a bunch of thugs who each had a dream. In the end, she had to save Eugene. So, it wasn’t all, “Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your hair!”

And then there’s Snow White. She’s a warrior now. She fought for a kingdom that is rightfully hers and took it back from the Evil Queen. (Granted, it wasn’t a Disney production but still.)

Cinderella… Well, she was still this fortunate little girl, incredibly loved by her parents who just wanted to go to the ball, marry the prince, and live happily ever after. What’s up with that?!
