Remember when I posted an article about how people where displeased with Disney for creating a so-called Latina princess named Sofia the First that doesn’t look Latina whatsoever?
Hey guess what y’all, Princess Sofia of the Disney Channel Original movie Sofia the First: Once Upon a Princess, is NOT LATINA! Shocking, right? CNN got the deets on the new information that has been unveiled about the public outcry going on right now with Disney and the Latin Community.
CNN states, Jamie Mitchell, producer of the Disney TV Movie and upcoming show, “misspoke” during a press tour about the title character being Latina. As you can see in the above picture, Sofia’s step brother’s (who is Caucasian by the way) complexion is identical to hers. Like I said in the previous post, Latinos can come in all shades, however with amber hair and bright blue eyes, one can clearly tell Sofia is not Latina.
Disney, I think it’s safe to say it’s time to make an official Latina princess…but put the movie on the silver screen like the others, it’s only fair and I did kind of frown at the fact this movie wasn’t going to theaters.
