Disney movies have played a major part in the lives of children for years, but one very famous actress has caused quite the controversy when she revealed she doesn’t let her daughter watch the classics like Cinderella and The Little Mermaid.
Keira Knightley was hit with a wave of backlash when she revealed her controversial parenting decision, but she is standing by her choice for the most important reason.
She shared that she will let her daughter watch Frozen because it shares a healthy and positive message with young women, as opposed to the older princess movies.
The Love Actually star loves how Elsa protects her sister Anna from making careless decisions.
“She’s like “absolutely that is not okay” and in fact, everyone in 'Frozen' is not okay with that. What would Elsa say to Ariel, who gives up her voice for a man? A man, by the way, she has only seen dance round a ship and then drown,” the mum told Good Morning Britain.
She continued: “Moana is big in our house, Inside Out is big in our house, I just wonder what Elsa ('Frozen') would say to Ariel ('The Little Mermaid') and Cinderella because Elsa has some serious opinions about Anna going off with a guy that she’s only just met and saying she would marry him.”
The Nutcracker and the Four Realms actress added: “And it’s 100 per cent amazing of Ariel to save the guy, I’m totally up for that, but what would Elsa make of that? I think Elsa would be like: 'Babe, you’ve got to get to know him better, don’t give up your voice just yet.”
Many parents feel Keira is taking the movies too seriously and argue that young children won’t be as heavily influenced as she believes her daughter will be.
