Tumblr Artists Imagine Frozen‘s Lead As Something Other Than Another White Disney Princess

Disney princesses, taken as a collective group, are awfully white. You know it. I know it. Aliens probably know it. It’s a fact that a lot of people (justifiably) don’t like. One of those people harnessed their desire to see more non-white representation in Disney movies and started This Could Have Been Frozen, a Tumblr devoted to fan-created concept art for Disney’s upcoming Frozen (and/or The Snow Queen, the fairy tale on which it was based) that imagines its lead as something other than a Rapunzel lookalike.
The site’s admin, Alex, is careful to note that their objective “is not to boycott or ‘hate’ on Disney’s current Frozen, but to point out how diversity and PoC could [have] still been done” in the film and to “emphasize [Disney's] lack of diversity.” After all, while Frozen is set in Scandinavia, it’s not like there are only white people there. And it’s based on a fairy tale that has multicultural variations.
And heck, it’s just a fun art project, too. Take a lok at some of our favorites behind the jump.
