I'm not mad at it, but it wasn't necessary either. I don't think people were calling for Disney princesses to be turned black. Just create more racially diverse princesses, which Disney's actually done a fair job at.

If they were insistent on a black princess, why not just roll with The Princess and the Frog?

Anything that causes a mass influx of white tears gets my stamp of approval

The nerve of these cacs getting mad about a fictional character when they have literally whitewashed actual history

I'm not mad but let's keep it a buck if it was originally a black character and they decided to white wash it we'd be tryna cancel Disney.

We'll see if you everyone keep the same energy when they hire some white kid to play the prince tho.
Whitewashing is a real thing. Blackwashing is not

Is Disney gonna do a live action of all their movies? Just because they can don't mean they should. There's mulan, hercules, lilo and stitch ,pocahantes, the hunchback of Notre dame atlantis, the emperor's new grove etc. They couldv3 done the sword in the stone. I'm saying thought skip the movies and do live action films based on tv shows like gargoyles.

People voice characters of different races all the time. Like ALL THE TIME. It's such a minor but in this current climate I guess it fits

Edit.

Just seen its live action so disregard this post
