Kristen Bell Questions Message 'Snow White' Sends to Kids

Kristen Bell Questions Message 'Snow White' Sends to Kids

Speaking with Parents, Bell expressed how she loves reading to her daughters and discussing the stories every time they put the book down. She adds, "I glance away from the book and see their brains working while we're all cuddled up like meerkats".

"Don't you think that it's weird that the prince kisses Snow White without her permission?" "Or where she got that apple?' I say, 'I would never take food from a stranger, would you?' And my kids are like, 'No!' And I'm like, 'Okay, I'm doing something right'". Did you know Pongo and Perdita had something like 100 kids on a brittle planet that can hardly sustain any of us? Kids get plenty of food from strangers on Halloween. "You don't a young woman should ever live with seven unmarried, older diamond merchants who use obviously fake first names-and whose house you've broken into to take a nap and cleaned for some reason, do you?"

The parent said the Penguin edition of the 19th-century tale, which was made into a 1937 Disney film classic, contained culturally "inappropriate" images involving kissing and other forms of contact.

"There's a fear-based toddler-teaching book with Mr. Fox getting hit by a auto, his head bleeding, and Xs on his eyes", Bell recalled.

"They're stubborn as all get out, but maybe they get that from me".


Kristen Bell may be a part of the Disney family, but she does not believe all stories are created equal.

Kristen mused: 'Don't you think that it's weird that The Prince kisses Snow White without her permission because you cannot kiss someone if they're sleeping!' "You don't think it's okay to let some wealthy, handsome sovereign give you an unconsented kiss simply because you're lying in a coma in glass coffin in the middle of the woods surrounded by crying dwarves and anthropomorphized forest animals, do you?" "I'm like, 'Mom, you read this to me?' God bless the '80s, I don't know how we got through". Bell said that she asks her kids. Wasn't it The Prince was the saviour of Snow White kissing her without malicious intent?

For those unfamiliar, "Snow White", also known as "Sleeping Beauty", is placed under a curse that can only be broken when her true love kisses her after an evil witch hands feeds her a poison apple. Is that what Bell really wants her kids to learn?

Some fans also pointed out how Snow White isn't the only Disney film that features questionable content.
