Who doesn't want to be a Princess? We are jumping into exploring the 2001 film, "The Princess Diaries" starring Anne Hathaway in her breakout role of Mia Thermopolis, an awkward teenage girl that discovers that she is the heir to the throne of Genovia and her Grandmother, Queen Clarisse Renaldi, Played by Julie Andrews, has come to America to teach her how to be royal.
This film is definitely a kids show about a kid, for kids, but there are still some themes that you can pick out of the movie that adults can love too. Queen Clarisse has a journey that she goes on in this film too learning that its important to accept people for who they are and not what they do.
We have a discussion about what it actually means to be a friend and whether or not Lilly is a good friend to Mia.
We complain how Disney Movies frequently paint adults as bumbling oafs that create issues that would never happen in real life.
And we take a look at whether or not media is training children that they must be the chosen one and accomplish great things or else face the fact that they are failures and how to overcome that.
Next week we jump into some of the history, inspiration and a discussion about the books.
