dor-mouse asked: You know what I'd love to see, is a Disney or Pixar movie about an African warrior princess that's strong and amazing and beautiful and smart, and the development of the story could just be that her tribe has no other human contact with the outside world, and one day explorers come across the tribe, something can happen idk... but in order to make up their minds as to whether or not they should allow "the white man" to change their traditional way of life, they send the princess back with them--
— and some more stuff goes on, idk WHAT. And she gets pampered and taught the “white” way, and clothed and fashioned the “white” way, and taught to sleep “properly” and just a whole bunch of other stupidness. In the end they have to bring her back, and she has to make the ultimate decision. But she decides to keep the tribe as it is and banishes the “white” man because she sees darkness in their ways. Just a factual story, no real “happy ending” or romance in it. THAT’S ALL.
yo I don’t think Disney or any other “children’s” media company wants to got that deep and awesome
but like, why can’t we have characters who happen to be PoC rather than PoC characters?
That’s what I want.
