I just realized that most Disney Princess movies are from the perspective of the princess and the only ones I can think of which aren’t are Aladdin and pre-Disney Star Wars

(I don’t have a point here, I’m just noticing things)

Also Tangled is interesting in that it’s from the princess’s perspective when the story of Rapunzel is traditionally told from the man’s POV

And does the man normally even have a name, or is he meant to be a stand-in for the male audience with a savior complex?

@fluffy My spouse and children came back after watch Frozen 2 and said the movie probable doesn't pass the Bechdel Test if it was for men.

@fluffy I think the male character's usually just called "the prince" in those stories, if any of them aren't (besides "the beast") I sure can't think of any

I guess Gaston and John Smith, if you want to count them (and John Smith might as well not be a name)

@matt oh yeah I guess I haven’t seen Pocahontas and I honestly have no idea whose perspective it’s told from aside from the white savior writers

@fluffy It's been so long since I've seen it that I don't remember, I think it shifts between perspectives, but you're right in that ultimately the film's only real perspective modern-day genocide apologia
