  1. Does she get thrown into the arena with 23 others until only one is left? Oh wait, that’s another young woman archer….

  2. For a heartbeat when the redhead with the bow appeared from the crowd, I didn’t recognize her as the princess without her headdress, and thought – WOW! A woman’s here to claim the princess’s hand – Disney is getting brave!

    I bet they’ll hook her up with a boy later on, but she still looks like a pretty awesome heroine – no passive Disney princess for sure. Even better if they let her stay single, of course – not that I’m not all for love stories, I just hate the message that no girl’s story is satisfactory without one.

  3. @jadecath: That’s exactly what I thought! Wouldn’t that have been fun?

    This film definitely shows promise and it would be wonderful if Disney had the guts to portray a female character in a strong, positive way. Could it even be the first Disney film to pass the Bechdel Test?
