“I wish there were Disney books that explored what each of the Princesses passions are. For example, Tiana could teach about the food industry and business. Ariel could explore the sea and land, discussing biology and earth science. Just something like that would be fantastic and help make the Princesses better role models.”

I’m so tired of seeing so-called “progressive” conversations within the fandom that undermine the significance of Tiana because she is Afro-American as opposed to a native African. Yeah, it would be interesting to see Disney’s take on a native African fairy-tale, but acting like the culture of slave-descended Black Americans is not also worthy of representation is prejudiced and insulting.
“I really do like the new
Tangled TV show but I would really like for Tiana to have an animated series
too. I would even be happy with a YouTube series. It’s so frustrating that
Rapunzel gets all this attention while Tiana gets none.“
