“I wish there were more Disney animated movies where the main character was a guy. It seems like Disney is relying too much on the Disney princess formula, which I do enjoy, but I’d rather see something different now. Aladdin and the Lion King are both very successful movies with the main character as a guy. Why can’t Disney make something like that again?”
I can’t stand confessions like this. There is literally more Disney movies with a male main character than there are with a female main character.
(deep breath).. Pinocchio, Dumbo, Bambi, Saludos Amigos, The Three Caballeros, Fun and Fancy Free, The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad, Peter Pan, Sword in the Stone, Jungle Book, Robin Hood, The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, Fox and the Hound, The Black Cauldron, The Great Mouse Detective, Oliver & Co., Aladdin, The Lion King, Hunchback of Notre Dame, Hercules, Tarzan, Emperor’s New Groove, Dinosaur, Atlantis: The Lost Empire, Treasure Planet, Brother Bear, Chicken Little, Meet the Robinsons, Bolt, Winnie the Pooh, Wreck-It Ralph
That’s 31 of 52 movies, or 60%, whereas Disney movies with a (definite, singular) female main character are 13 in total, or 25%. Another 25% has multiple main characters of both genders. That enough math to prove my point?
