fuckin incredible the rip-off version of frozen has more diversity than the original disney movie
I’m sorry. But if you watched the actual movie Frozen, you’d notice that there were Nordic ruins, so I’m pretty sure this was based somewhere in Scandinavia. The beginning song, Frozen Heart, sounds like it has Russia influences. And you know what kind of people inhabited Scandinavia and Russia during that time period? Whites.
Now, take into account the actual time period itself. It has to be around the colonization era, which means they were just starting to explore Africa. The British dignitary, throughout the entire move, was only concerned with trade, as it was the main focus for the British economy at the time. There was also a portrait of Joan of Arc, which means this was after the Hundred Years War. So I’m thinking 1500-1600s.
Do you know what that means? Africans and native Americans are just starting to be shipped out as slaves. Slaves. So of course there wouldn’t be any people of that ethnic descent placed as nobility. There probably wasn’t even any in Scandinavia at that time.
Frozen was only trying to be historically accurate, so excuse them for not having a lot of diversity because the movie was centered on Eastern Europe. They should have really known better.
I do agree with the historically accurate argument (however, Disney is almost never historically accurate, so they definitely could’ve just made Frozen diverse if they wanted)
Also, simply having a movie about an Inuit village isn’t diversity. It’s just not a movie about Europeans. You have to have more than one race for it to qualify as racial diversity. Now, I have not seen “Frozen Land,” (nor do I ever intend to) so I may be wrong and it may have characters of more than one race. But simply having a movie about people who aren’t European isn’t diversity. For example, I wouldn’t count Mulan as a diverse movie. She adds diversity to the Disney Princess lineup, because then she’s among girls of other races, but the people in Mulan are not racially diverse. They’re all Chinese (which is historically accurate). So having a movie about Inuits (again, could be wrong, but from the description it looks like all the characters are Inuit) does not make a racially diverse movie
