Merida Not only has the heavy responsibility of being the first female principal of Pixar but also character - especially - the first heroine of Disney with curly hair. Think about it two seconds : Snow White ? Smooth hair . Belle? Smooth . Cinderella , Aurora , Rapunzel ? Same.
Ariel has the right to a kind of vaguely wavy red mass :
A little more successful for Esmeralda
And Tiana, the African-American Princess The Princess and the Frog , a few curls escaping :
But the real curls, curls that move both together and separately , short curls like ours, like Audrey Pulvar , Rachida Brakni , or Julia Roberts , Disney had never done.
The Little Mermaid, a disgruntled curly hair.
In fact , Disney could not do it. Technically . "The Little Mermaid and Esmeralda must have curly hair in the first design , but the reality is that it was too difficult to draw by hand , and it would cost a lot of money to include all loops "says Brenda Chapman, who created the character of Merida, co-wrote and co-directed Rebel".
Giselle , the main character in Once Upon A Time played by Amy Adams, boasts some beautiful English, but his animated cartoon version we see the beginning of the film is still can not be smoother.
In Merida , Pixar teams have spent nearly three years developing software to animate a red fleece becomes a character in the film . Curly hair is made of 1500 individual curls , each with its own degree of curl and red , placed on the head of the girl and programmed to interact with each other and with the external environment together . It took six months to gradually add each loop model skull Merida , until a total of about 111,700 hair.
The curly hair is not unlike freckles , for example - at all times and all cultures a symbol of savagery and evil, even rebellion. In the Western world , from the Carolingian dynasty , with which the Holy Roman Empire appears, the hair is long and often wavy. Take Clodion scalp curly hair.
But to say that girls who do not see princesses with curly hair ? They can not become princesses . Disney Princess even confirmed in spite of myself, a film in which Anne Hathaway discovers she is of royal blood. It must then undergo a makeover scene to access her true princess status.
You may be saying " hey, curly hair, it is not a super important model." Girls with curly hair often feel different , if not abnormal , vaguely inconventionnelles. On the site of the Express, which has created a " Club curly ", several readers have entrusted some time to "accept their curls."
She says having long lacked a model with curly hair, she felt uncomfortable with this mop that did not seem to be the norm , and stresses that the loops are treated as a kind of non-compliance.
Women with curly hair seem less easily comply with the requirement of beauty described by Mona Chollet in Fatal Beauty . They are natural , like Merida . Mona Chollet cites the American sociologist Laurie Essig :
" In American culture , beauty is both a matter of genetic superiority and something to which we must work . "
Disney has taken a step towards diversity with The Princess and the Frog . The company made another to feminism by Rebel .
