Happiness is… binge watching Disney Movies😊
Disney movies are what I call “My Happy place”. No matter what my mood is (happy, sad, confused or lost) I’m always up for them. Especially when I’m bummed out. They are my escape and my comfort.
I’ve grown up watching them and I still jump out of excitement (as I used to when I was 7-8 years old) when I see Disney movie on TV. And that ensures me from time to time that I’m still a little kid at heart (something I don’t want to change). Hahaha
What’s not to like in Disney movies? They entertain you, uplifts your mood and teaches you so many valuable lessons through most magical experiences.
One of my favourite Disney Princess is Cindrella.
She has taught me to be kind, to have courage and never stop believing in my dreams. And there are days when I doubt myself and my dreams and you know what I do at that time?
I sing cindrella song….
“No matter how your heart is grieving
If you keep on believing
The dream that you wish will come true.
A dream is a wish your heart makes…”
And it gives me hope and strength to keep believing in my dreams.
I know Disney Princess were not always associated with feminism and it’s understandable. Because earlier movies did show that princesses have to look certain way, should behave certain way like they should be sweet, kind and poised. But I believe movies reflect ideas and social norms that are prevalent in society at time. So it make sense to me why they portrait princesses like that. But over the years Disney Princesses have come a long way and now defying gender roles and fighting for women’s equality.
Be it ‘JASMINE’ from Aladdin who stood for herself and tells the patriarchy “How dare you — all of you! Standing around deciding my future…I am not a prize to be won!”
And I really love the song ‘Speechless’ from Aladin movie. It’s so meaningful! And perfectly depicts her feelings and her rage.
Or strong, brave and resilient ‘MULAN’ who fought alongside male counterparts in a war zone and saved a kingdom.
P.S – Disney’s Mulan is coming in movies! Check out the trailer! (yes I won’t leave a opportunity to promote Disney 😅)
The two of my favourite Disney Princess movies are Frozen (which redefined the meaning of true love/real love for me) and Brave (because this I think is the first Disney movie which depicts mother – daughter relationship in such a beautiful heartwarming way).
Then obviously there are movies like “Coco” which teaches you importance of family and it’s value. And “Inside out” which tells you it’s absolutely normal to feel different emotions at the same time and that it’s okay to be not okay.
There are many more and list can go on and on. And so can I, go hours talking about Disney movies. But I think you get my love for Walt Disney for creating such a magical experiences for everyone.
