Amanda Seyfried, Mila Kunis, and Gemma Arterton have played या are going to play leading ladies of well known storybook characters on the big screen. The problem I have is not with the अभिनेत्रियों personally but the ever pattern in beauty.
We had Snow White and the Huntsman, Once Upon a Time series, Mirror Mirror, Red Riding Hood. 2013, we’re going to get Jack the Giant Slayer, Hansel and Gretel Witch Hunters, Oz: The Great & Powerful, and डिज़्नी will be making an adaption of The Snow क्वीन sometime soon. There probably are going to be और fairy tale adaptations in 2014. The फिल्में are starting to look better with लेखन and action (seriously last year’s fairy tale adaptations sucked) but in the future I would like to see directors actually cast a plus size woman as the lead role of the princess या maiden.
I think there should be plus size princesses. Maybe from डिज़्नी maybe from other companies that are starting to make और and और fairy tale adaptations. The point is I think with all these adaptations coming out this साल these companies should start using plus size अभिनेत्रियों as the main leads या draw plus size princess characters.
Yeah I know I’m going to get crap for saying this but I think companies should start doing this with their adaptations. I mean, everyone want to make a different and twisted version of these stories so why not be as different from everyone else to cast a thick chick as Little Mermaid? Other directors haven't been doing that yet.
I've seen two horror films on Red Riding हुड, डाकू before. Red Riding हुड, डाकू (2011) and Company of भेड़िया (1984). I've seen many horror dark twist to Snow White. Snow White and the Huntsman, & Snow White a Tale of Terror. But I never seen them portrayed द्वारा thick women.
And besides what fairy tale actually SAID—I mean what TEXT says—that the princess was thin या had a small waist? None do because all of those fairy tale’s beauty ideals are very vague so the reader can just imagine their own image of beauty. It makes it relatable to all kinds of people. Also the appearance doesn't really matter. All we need to know that the princess is considered beautiful. That is why these fairy tales have been passed down to so many different generations.
Also since directors already change things in adaptations like turning innocent Red Riding हुड, डाकू into a hot blonde twenty साल old I don’t think making a curvy princess would take out of the story. And well being historically accurate doesn’t apply when these fairy tales are vague and aren’t based on any historic people या events.
The standers of beauty can’t be just this one thing. I would like Hollywood to grow and be और diverse in what its तस्वीरें of beauty are. I want डिज़्नी in the future to have female characters that are thicker and are looked as beautiful. Little girls need to see that. Heck, grown women need to see that!
Why can’t Christina Aguilera at the weight she is now be cast as a princess Odette in the अगला हंस Lake movie? Sara Ramirez is beautiful, why can't she play the 2014 version of Rapunzel? Hayley Hasselhoff is freaking adorable looking. Seriously she is a cutie pie; I would like to see her play सिंडरेला या the girl from Rumpelstiltskin. Why can’t Jenna Ushkowitz be casted as Sleeping Beauty या Princess Badroulbadour in Aladdin? नीलकंठ, जय, जे Park could play a गाना Aladdin. She has the गाना voice of a fairy tale princess. She would be perfect for a musical fairy tale adaption. Why can’t American Ferrea play the lead in Snow White & Rose Red? Why can’t Joanne Borgella play the main lead in the Grimm’s tale Brother and Sister?
I’m not saying Hollywood should just stop casting skinny girls as the pretty girl roles all together. No. I just think the body तस्वीरें on screen should widen out some. One movie skinny actress, the अगला should have a thicker actress. There are a few beautiful plus size अभिनेत्रियों that could play these fairy tale divas in a new modern twist. Seriously, Hollywood needs to become और diverse of what beauty is and what it can be. It can’t be just one image. Everyone should be able to feel beautiful,sexy, and desirable.
Also (not that this has anything to do with the topic but) I have to give it up to Tommy Wirkola for actually seeming to put some thought and care into his movie. Yeah, the idea of Hansel and Gretel with बंदूकों hunting witches and looking like a video game Sucker पंच movie is very wacky and weird but at least it's creative & unique. Wirkola is making his adaption his own and that's what directors should do with these fairy tale adaptions. WE all know the story of Hansel and Gretel so the fact that his takes place after the events of the story we know seems to be a smart हटाइए because now the audience doesn't know what to expect and they won't be told the same story over and over again with but with different sets.
