The Disneyfication of Climate Crisis: Frozen and Moana Through the Lens of Global Warming

May 23 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Disney’s recent princess films Moana (2016), Frozen (2013), and Frozen 2 (2019) cast the primary antagonist as climate change. These films solve their respective climate issues through love for oneself, one’s family, and the environment. Grounding our analysis in ecocriticism in children’s literature, Disney’s marketing of the films, and their material culture, we argue that these new princess films can offer young viewers an introduction to issues of global warming, but do not wholeheartedly follow through on their ecocritical promise.
