Gender Roles Portrayed in Disney Princess Films: Depictions of Time Periods

I composed this analysis in my English Informatics class, a textual analysis class. The objective of this assignment was to write a ten page analysis on three different texts. In this case, I analyzed three Disney princess film scripts. I enjoyed researching this topic as well as composing it as I grew up with Disney films. There were moments, however, when I felt my entire childhood views on Disney films, especially princess films, were shattered.

The Cost of Happiness: The Utopian Worlds of Omelas and Pleasantville

I completed this analysis for my Media Studies class, where we read text and compared them to films we viewed in class. For this analysis, we were to choose any of the texts and/or films we discussed in class and write an analysis comparing one text and one film on how they are similar. I chose a text we read in class, “The Ones who Walk Away from Omelas,” and a film I have watched outside of class, Pleasantville, which both resemble utopian societies with a price.
