Here’s the question…Is it time for a chubby Disney Princess?
A Virginia High School girl thinks so and I so agree.
Jewel Moore is a high school junior from Farmville, Virginia and has on her own started a petition on Change.org to convince Disney to make a movie about a plus-size Princess.
Her stand is “ It would be revolutionary for Disney to show support to a group of girls who are otherwise horrendously bullied by the media. It would make young girls feel confident and worthy to see a strong character that looks like them.”
Jewel is plus-sized herself and obviously one mature young woman. She says in her petition that if Disney would do this many young girls seeing a strong character that looks like them would feel confident and worthy not to mention Disney making itself look good. And who knows she says…”Disney would probably have a ripple effect in people all around the world”.
