“Frozen” Black Recreation Gets A Cold Reaction

From an Egyptian Meg to an Asian Cinderella, we have all seen the many recreations of Disney Princesses and female characters depicted as women of color.

One Brazilian artist has taken the main characters of Disney’s Frozen and given them some color. The picture features Queen Elsa and Princess Anna as young black girls.

With Frozen being such a popular release for Disney, many saw the artist’s work as beautiful, while others didn’t take kindly to the swapping of races.

What exactly is the problem with this? The answer should be nothing, but unfortunately people are probably always going to find something wrong with Disney Princesses being drawn as ethic characters. Is it because they think it takes away from the story for some reason? Maybe? Or does it cause discomfort for people to see the princesses as a different race? That is possible as well. But what about the artists who drew these pictures?

    I think the eyes would look better brown.

    Looks like tan white folks anyway. Blue eyes are not representative of black characteristics.

      Looks like tan white folks anyway. Blue eyes and platinum blonde straight hair are not representative of black characteristics.

    Actually folks black people do sometimes have green and blue eyes. A friend of mine had a neighbor lady who was from Jamaica. She had a very dark brown complexion and tightly coiled black hair and eyes as light blue as Paul Newman’s. It was quite a striking combination. On the other hand, there are quite a few black women bleaching their hair blonde and/wearing straight blonde wigs and weaves. Look at Nick I Minaj and many lesser known black women you see in the general public. That being said, Disney princesses are imaginary cartoon characters and not real people. They could have blue or green skin. It’s just a fantasy cartoon for kids.

    @ Susan if this is such a fantasy cartoon for kids, than blk children shouldn’t fantasize to look like this imitation blk cartoon. This further teaches blk people that it’s not ok to be blk, to disconnect from being comfortable to be blk, and not to love ourselves for exactly who we are. So fantasy is far from the imagery.
