In the early Disney cartoon movies, princesses like Snow White, Cinderella and Aurora from Sleeping Beauty are usually good-looking and kind-hearted. But they have to depend on others to get out of trouble and find happiness. They end up living happily with their princes.
Now, people still love those princesses, but more and more girls know they have to fight for their own happiness. Disney has noticed the change. So the princesses in its newer movies don’t just have good looks.
Merida from Brave is a good example. She was born as a princess and she likes going on adventures. She spends her days practicing archery(射箭术), riding her horse and experiencing the world around her. She loves her family, but she wants to take control of her own life.
Some times ago, Disney even put up their “10 new rules for being a modern princess”. The rules include: Care for others; Live healthily; Don’t judge a book by its cover; Be honest; Be a friend you can trust; Believe in yourself; Right wrongs; Try your best; Be loyal and Never give up.
None of the rulers are about the looks of a princess. Anyway, one’s beauty is more valuable. Don’t you think so?
26. Snow White is a good-looking and kind-hearted girl.
27. All Disney princesses can get out of difficulty and find happiness by themselves.
28. The princesses in Disney’s newer movies just have good looks.
