Walt Disney's 100 Years of Magic

The spurning of a legacy, or a sign of the times? Walt Disney's 100 Years of Magic dvd According to a recent Los Angeles Times report, Disney’s soon-to-be-released Tangled, Walt Disney's 100 Years of Magic notable for being the company’s 50th animated feature film, Walt Disney's 100 Years of Magic dvd marks a major shift in the entertainment company’s strategy: Away from princesses, Walt Disney's 100 Years of Magic dvd for sale and towards more “gender-neutral,” Walt Disney's 100 Years of Magic movies male-friendly entertainment.
Reportedly miffed that 2009’s The Princess and the Frog failed to be the megahit that NCIS Seasons 1-7 dvd it had hoped for (despite grossing more than $250 million worldwide on a $104 production million budget) on account of its overfocus on younger girls, Monk Seasons 1-8 dvd Disney is said to be trying to bring “boys, teenagers and adults to the theater,” NCIS Seasons 1-7 dvd with a “romantic male lead as a wise-cracking thief who mixes it up with Army Wives Seasons 1-4 dvd bandits and beer-swilling thugs.” Rescue Me Seasons 1-5 dvd But it’s not just that Disney wants to bring more boys into the fold. Boston Legal Seasons 1-5 dvd What girls want has changed as well, thanks to the likes of, That 70s Show Seasons 1-8 dvd well, The Disney Channel:
Los Angeles Times: With the advent of “tween” TV, South Park Seasons 1-13 dvd the tiara-wearing ideal of femininity has been supplanted by new adolescent role models such as the Disney Channel’s Selena Gomez Smallville Seasons 1-9 dvd and Nickelodeon’s Miranda Cosgrove.
“By the time they’re 5 or 6, Sex Abd The City Seasons 1-6 dvd they’re not interested in being princesses,” said Dafna Lemish, The Office Seasons 1-6 dvd chairwoman of the radio and TV department at Southern Illinois University and The Office Seasons 1-6 an expert in the role of media in children’s lives. Lost Seasons 1-6 dvd “They’re interested in being hot, in being cool. Clearly, they see this is what society values.” Supernatural Seasons 1-5 dvd
The thing is, MASH Seasons 1-11 dvd Disney features have been far from the Sleeping Beauty model of tiara-sporting damseldom for quite a while: ’Ghost Whisperer Seasons 1-5 dvd 90s movies like Pocahontas and Mulan weren’t immune to cultural critique, but they did star strong female leading characters. I haven’t seen Princess and the Frog, but from what I gather, it did as well; Ghost Whisperer Seasons 1-5 dvd putting “Princess” in the title of a movie may well be a marketing mistake, Criminal Minds Seasons 1-5 dvd but it seems odd that Disney should retreat from a winning, How I Met Your Mother Seasons 1-5 dvd even iconic formula which has already shown itself willing to adapt to the times on account of one hiccup.
