big hero 6, frozen and rapunzel have gotten a lot of attention for disney reusing lead female character designs, but I feel like pointing out that they’ve been doing it for years. I think with the three most recent examples, being 3d and back to back releases just makes the copy pasta more obvious.
They do manage to pull out some more interesting designs every now and then, which I’ve made sure to include some in this too. And while most of the characters that do deviate from the mold are the ones of ethnicity other than caucasian, there are two that stand out to me. Megara, despite being European, breaks the mold a bit, and Tiana, despite being African, fits the mold almost perfectly, other than the width of her nose.
I’d rather people not get angry over something like this, but instead be inspired to do better in their own work. Strive to tell stories with real people in them - people that are diverse, not just in what they look like, but how they act, and what they do.
