  • billyswifty I think Ariel should be played by an actress with red hair.

  • carachen It's not racist if some fans want casting decisions to stick to the original script. If someone decided to cast Tiana as a white actress, there would undoubtedly be retaliation as well. Double standards.

    • carachen @user_32107 I honestly think that the solution to a lack of POC representation in media isn't to race-bend existing roles; instead, Hollywood and Disney should create new roles that positively portray and empower POC. Race-bending existing, familiar characters will only serve to foster resentment and stubbornness in the minds of the very populations we are trying to change. Also, as a POC myself and seeing how Disney botched the Mulan remake, I would rather have positive representation come from a better source without a history of exploitation.

    • wefoundwonderland @tree5002 its not racism - ariel's character in the animation was DESIGNED to be white skinned. thats why we're looking for someone with white skin, it has nothing to do with racism - i wouldn't want a white girl to play as Tiana for example, because Tiana was designed with black skin! Thats all!

    • clownprinceofcasting @wefoundwonderland ok, yes but nothing about Ariel's character in the OG says her character has to be white. Because Tiana was written to be a powerful hardworking black woman, thats why we dont want her to be played by a white actress
