This is an image of the good fairies from the upcoming Maleficent movie.
Remember how they were fat, grey-haired, kindly old women in the original Sleeping Beauty? Well, Disney has changed them to cutesy, young, thin fairies in the new movie. What was wrong with the old designs? If Disney wanted to make them younger, that’s fine (I think this is meant to be a prequel of sorts?) But why do they have to be thinner? Why can’t they be cute, young, AND round? It’s so frustrating seeing such awesome and unique character designs turned into the same ol’ generic Tinkerbell-esque look we see in every fairy movie.
Thin privilege is having previously-fat characters intentionally changed into thin characters to make them more appealing for audiences :(
