Well, this post is entirely from a mother, an occasional mom blogger in me:)
I love to spend quality time with my little one and you all must be aware of how girls are influenced by the Barbie stories and Disney princesses at this age, and my daughter is no exception.
We have watched Frozen and Rapunzel over and over again, I have lost the count also but what amuses me is the fact that every time we watch it, my daughter is equally excited as if she is watching it for the first time. We have been watching so many movies together, but three movies really inspired me, yes I really loved watching these three movies and yes I must admit I have been watching it again and again with my daughter. So here is the list:
These are princesses who didn’t wait for their prince to rescue them.
First of all, you will see the most amazing and breathtaking animation in this Disney Movie. The wonderful animation and beauty of nature will leave you aww-struck. It has got some amazing soundtracks as well. It is a family movie, a movie of finding who you are and what is your purpose?
A story of a little girl and her connection with the oceans. A story of how fearless and focused she is to conquer her dreams. How she learns about the voyagers they were before and how a demigod named Maui stoled the heart of ta fiti and made mother nature angry and destructive. Moana restores the heart and mother nature blesses her and also forgives Maui. Do watch this movie to experience the authentic Hawaiin kind of culture portrayed in it, do watch it for the beautiful graphics and animation and to see how focused and fearless Princess Moana become to achieve her aim.
The movie Brave portrays princess Merida, an efficient Archer, who doesn’t believe in ancient systems and loves to stay ordinary. This movie depicts an amazing mother-daughter bond. Merida is determined to change her fate and defies an age-old custom sacred to the unruly and uproarious lords of the land: massive, surly Lord Macintosh and cantankerous Lord Dingwall, unleashing chaos in the kingdom. When she turns to an eccentric Witch, she is granted an ill-fated wish and the ensuing peril forces Merida to harness all of her resources—including her mischievous triplet brothers—to undo a beastly curse and discover the meaning of true bravery. It is a simple movie but has a very deep message. Merida taught us you do not need to fall in love with a prince to have a happy ending.
Young Mulan is distraught to learn that her weak father must join the army to fight the invading Huns. Unwilling to endanger his life, she disguises herself as a man and joins the army in his place. Her character is sweet, smart, strong, noble, and the most modest of all to inhabit a Disney cartoon. Based on a Chinese folk tale about a teenage girl, defying not simply convention, but her family’s desire that she abide by the plans of a matchmaker and marry whomever she selects for her. But she had some other plans to protect the honor if the family and her father’s pride.
It is a pleasant watch and I thoroughly enjoyed watching it.
So these were my three best discoveries in my daily binge watching animated movies with my daughter 🙂 Those who have not watched or not shown it to their daughters, Please show them to introduce the other side of a princess, as not every princess choose pink or choose to stay in their palace, some just break out to discover the real life, the nature, the real princess within by being the warrior of their lives.
Much love and gratitude
