Perfect Cartoon Turns Disney Princesses into Marvel Superheroes
Between Belle's Stockholm Syndrome, Ariel's willingness to literally give up her voice for a man, and Snow White and Sleeping Beauty's tendency to sleep through the action, Disney princesses don't have a great track record for being empowered heroines.
The amazing cartoon includes Aurora as Captain Marvel, Megara as Black Widow, Esmerelda as Scarlet Witch, Jasmine as Medusa, Tiana as Storm, Elsa as Emma Frost, Belle as Gamora, and Snow White as Wasp (although at first glance it looks like Snow White as Tinkerbell). Some of these choices are inspired, and the Elsa/Emma Frost connection is obviously on-the-nose, but it is kind of unfathomable that Rapunzel isn't cast as Medusa. Oh, well, Robby at Cartoon Cookie has still managed to make these princesses more feminist by a mile, so we'll forgive it.
Now if we could just do something about those waistlines...
