  1. A Media Studies Analysis

  2. Portrayal Of Characters • Tomboy • More like her father,(Daddy’s girl) though her mother wants her to be a Lady and a • proper princess (More like her) • Loves Archery • Strong female Character • Independent Meredith • Strong king • Gets along with his kingdom (Sometimes gets caught up and more like a friend • then a King. Becomes involved with rebellious behavior.) • Bear hunter • More slack with daughter • Doesn’t believe in magic. Fergus (Father) • Very proper, strict and a tad controlling. • Wants her daughter to be like her • Well respecting in the kingdom http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vmMPw49XwYk http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GzYm3ig7tak Elinor (Mother)

  3. Analysis of Over Simplified Assumptions • Some one isn’t smart because of their looks. (Both blonde sons weren't portrayed as ‘smart’, one no one could even understand.) • Some one is a Stuck-up/Cocky person because they are a fit male. (Third son, brown hair, fir, ‘swoopy’ hair, made girls swoon.) • Female bear is smaller then male, more fragile, male looks strong, rough, scary. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-MNbxXcQieY

  4. Stereotyping Analysis Positive Stereotyping Negative Stereotyping Scottish people always wear kilts. Witches are ugly and cold. Expected to marry young and to a Prince. (Not a man of her choosing or falling in love.) To be ‘Beautiful’ is to be pale/fair skinned, flawless. • Woman In authority. (When Elinor walked in the room, everyone listened.) • Independent Woman. (Meredith as a teen grew independent and stood up for herself.) • Strong king (Protected kingdom and hunted bear for his peoples safety. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=taIFiRD18jM

  5. Themes Positive Negative (Beginning) “A princess is/must/must not…” Certain criteria to be a princess. Teenagers are rebellious. • Stand up for yourself and what YOU want. • Don’t try to change someone, accept them the way they are. • Princess don’t have to be proper, girly, like Disney has portrays them in the past, they can be a tomboy and stick up for themselves instead of going with the slow. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=htzOSQed49E
