This is true. But aren't they usually villains or comic relief males? Trying to remember any plump characters that weren't that.

there have been a few female characters ('goodies' though) too like off the top of my head merryweather from sleeping beauty, fairy mary from the more recent tinkerbell movies..but they're all 'motherly' characters..which is another issue altogether I guess..

now i do agree with making barbies average sized.....

because i dont necessarily like the idea of having average sized kids fawning over super skinny barbie dolls

barbie should be the size of the average young woman

I'm all for the representation of the marginalized but honestly, if Disney does this, I expect this princess to be a change without being a change: In other words, she will be the "pretty" kind of plus size and with certainty, white.

wanting a media largely consumed by children to be more inclusive is not “thinking too hard”

They don't exist syndrome (in media world).  This is why I started to find it unfathomable that these white TV characters can walk through life every single day and conduct a life in big cities where they don't run into one single black woman or interact with even one.    I finally have a hard time thinking of a show I watch that has no women of color.  I'm still mad at SNL but at least they didn't try to drag that sh*t out and just did it.   I'm sure some white ppl find it offensive but they can change the channel. 

Nobody HAS to take kids to a movie with a "fattie" in the lead role.  Just sit them down and say honey I'm not taking you to that movie because the princess is too fat and unhealthy to be represented in a Disney movie.  We'll wait for the next one when the princess is a better role model for your expected body image.  Whatever

Next will be a gay character in a Disney movie.  Whatever, don't go to itLOL

Anyway, for a long time it has been if they don't look like us they don't exist in prime-time or even a whole 2-hour movie.    There's something for everyone even if some of us don't like it.

Disney needs to have another Black princess--one that isn't a frog for the majority of the movie. They think they're slick.
