Recently, while obsessively playing Disney songs on repeat, I started to notice that Disney tends to use repetition in the lyrics of different songs to show character and plot development.
For about a month now, all I've been hearing about is Disney's first "openly gay character" in the movie Beauty and the Beast. Most of the articles were about negative reactions, specifically parents. Many complained that it was implanting thoughts into children's brains, or asking what they would tell their children, etc...
Characters that set out to achieve something and actually achieve that something are a lot more interesting and very inspiring. Also, this is an important trait to show in role models for little kids.
SPOILER ALERT! Recently, I watched the new Disney movie Moana, and I absolutely loved it. The movie has a lot going for it - a strong female character, no yucky love story, and a plot twist that even my I've-been-watching-these-movies-for-fifty-years mom couldn't predict. The soundtrack was amazing, and the actual songs? They were the perfect blend of character development and plot advancement.
