Episode 51: Happily Ever After

 

This week SFF authors J.A.Ironside and M.E.Vaughan take a look at the tiny subsection of films that Disney Studios is best known and loved for - the Princess animated feature films. Comprising just a bear 24 (with a bit of license) of the 56 animated feature films produced by the studio, this is only a small slice of the total of all the films ever produced by the studio. So what is it that makes those films so enduring, appealing across divides of age, gender and generation? Find out as the dragons take a trip from 1937 to 2016, from Snow White to Moana.
