Jon Cozart, the creator of the YouTube channel Paint, beyond pulling off quartets with himself, made a point in some serious issues from the point of view of Disney characters, mainly princesses. I am trying to break it down and have a little review.
The Original After Ever After:
Ariel from The Little Mermaid: Overfishing and ocean polluting.
Ariel found her mermaid gone amiss – eaten by someone. This reflects the fact that we, humans, have overfished the ocean. Then she is blinded and suffocated by oil spills, especially the one left by BP’s Mexico Bay platforms as named directly.
Jasmine from Aladdin: War on Terror misidentifying targets, as well as Guantanamo problem.
Jasmine’s husband, Aladdin, was taken by the US, held and tortured in Guantanamo, greatly scared her. Neither Bush nor Obama administration realized this mistake.
Belle from Beauty and the Beast: Bestiality identified as a crime.
Despite the fact that the Beast in question is a prince under turned into a beast under influence of magic which is lifted at the end of the story, she is considered committing bestiality and conducted the crime during undoing the magic by kissing him.
Pocahontas from Pocahontas: Europeans driving native American and their culture into exile and danger of extinction.
The native Americans are greeted with force and disease from the arriving European settlers and colonists, who drove them into exile and resistance.
Mulan from Mulan: Struggles of members of the LGBT community.
After dressing like a man (a.k.a in drag) for extended time Mulan is on the verge of putting herself under the knife and become a transexual, which caused struggles.
Cinderella from Cinderella: (I didn’t made that out actually.)
Tiana from The Princess and the Frog: Hurricane Katrina and lack of disaster relief in time.
Her restaurant, Tiana’s Palace, got hit hard in Hurricane Katrina and flooded away. The city of New Orleans fell apart and hell broke loose in respect of safety with skyrocketing crime count.
Elsa from Frozen: Global warming.
Elsa, being gifted with cryokinetics, got very upset with Global Warming destroying her realm of ice and ice caps breaking off into the ocean. She lashed out with her evil side and combined Hitler with Stalin to force the world back into a low-carbon emission way of life.
