The Disney franchise is a world renowned business known for its very popular movies and animated films. Basically any movie with the Disney name behind it is destined with a future of great success and an immense cash flow.
Kids, adults, teenagers, seniors, toddlers; people of all ages flock to the theaters to watch them and for good reason. Its child friendly, it’s got good music, and it’s got pretty cool animated scenes. However, the name “Disney” has blinded a large portion of its audience to think that every movie is the “Best Movie of the YEAR.” Wrong. There are a nameless amount of examples to pick from, but the most talked about topic has to come from their more recently released movies, Frozen, Tangled, and the upcoming leader, Big Hero 6. Brace yourselves, for they all have one thing in common…
Characters May Suffer from SFS, or SAME-FACE SYNDROME
1. Same Face Syndrome:
If there are any major problems with this movie and the recent Disney releases in general, it has to be the fact that all the female lead character models look the same. Coming from a billion dollar franchise, I expected better. Anna and Elsa, although siblings, should not look like twins. Even WORSE than that, side by side, their should not be an Axis of Symmetry between two different characters.
Disney is growing continuously infamous for the similar look between a lot of the female leads. Take a look at the following characters and you may notice a pattern.
Maybe they don’t look exactly alike but there is no doubt that they look similar.
- Big eyes that aren’t brown
- perfect eyebrows that need no plucking
- flawless skin
- a small nose
- small mouth
- smooth, silky hair.
Warning: If one of your favorite characters has all of the following traits she may be suffering from Same-Face Syndrome. Seek professional help quickly and maybe together, we can stop this epidemic.
Disney, a franchise as large as yours should not be taking flame from nonsense like this. You have an almost endless amount of money to spend on creating a story that not only interests your audience, but also inspires them. Lately the movies have been lack-luster, not only with the “syndrome” but also with the bland plots, the countless number of plot holes, and the constant use of character tropes. Listen to Uncle Ben Disney, you gotta step up your game.
