Disney Princess Movies before and after name changes.
"how can we improve these titles?"
well…if you think about it logically… Disney has been doing this for a long time…Aladdin, Pocahontas…A single word title is memorable, it holds well when passed through word of mouth and will come up in a lot of searches over the internet, spreading easily. its just all around more memorable and profitable to condense en entire movie/plot into a single, memorable, 3 grade or below word…think about it…”mommy i want to see the bear and the bow” to “mommy can we see brave? that brave movie with the girl. mommy mommy brave!”
as accurate as the above statement is they also did it due to low sales from the Princess and the Frog, due to young boys not seeing the movies because of the gendered titles. which when you think about it is kinda dumb, considering i’m sure many young girls went to see the first harry potter movie when it first came out. (so in the end it all comes back to gender roles, which is kind of sad.) The bear and the Bow is excluded from this though because the original writer was kicked off the team at some point and they changed the name. (i think she was the writer, i’m not sure)
