Fantasmic Disney Fanatics

Hey there!

This is our final project for this class. Ours is called Fantastic Disney Fanatics. Basically, what we hoped to do with the project was analyze how Disney female characters have changed throughout films over time through reviews from the audience. We cherry picked several movies, including Snow White and the Seven Dwarves (1937), Cinderella (1950), Sleeping Beauty (1959), The Little Mermaid (1989), Mulan (1998), and Frozen (2013). Afterwards, we analyzed the reviews using Antconc and Voyant. A timeline was created to augment the conclusion. There was a lot of hair-pulling and stress to make the end project turn out the way it did, but I feel as though it is a success. In any case, I hope you all enjoy visiting the site.

  1. I really like how you went into detail about the background of your topic and the explanation of your approach as well as the very detailed reviews of each of the movies and their princesses. I also liked the graphics that you guys used from Voyant and AntConc.

  2. I like how in some of your analysis, you point out things that the reviews miss–like when you discuss Snow White’s oppression. The differences you noted with the Little Mermaid reviews were also interesting. Good application of Voyant and AntConc!
