Transformation
“Because of marketing, little girls gravitate toward princess products, so my goal was to offer up a different kind of princess — a stronger princess that both mothers and daughters could relate to, so mothers wouldn't be pulling their hair out when their little girls were trying to dress or act like this princess. Instead they'd be like, 'Yeah, you go girl!'”

Fun Fact
After the release of Beauty in the Beast in 1991, college enrollment rate for women increased. Ever since, there has been a growing gap between men and women.
"Historically speaking, animating female characters is really, really difficult, because they have to go through these range of emotions, but … you have to keep them pretty."
-Lino DiSalvo
Villains
A mom showed her daughter the differences between the princesses with a normal size waist and the original. Her daughter could not spot the difference and thought the princess with the normal size waist was the more beautiful of the two. Her mother then showed her a picture of a woman who had a size 16 waist. The young girl was in shock and asked her mother what was wrong with the girl and told her that she looked odd.
