I am a geek writer! The Legend of Zelda is probably my favorite topic to discuss, as well as Pokémon, Fire Emblem, Dungeons & Dragons, Lord of the Rings, and Disney. I hope you enjoy some of the pieces I have written here!
'Frozen': A Kristoff Appreciation Post
I’ve loved Disney from the start—I mean, who doesn’t? It’s Disney! But as much as I love it, in recent years I’ve been bothered that the princes of Disney don’t get much recognition. Of course, next to the princesses, the princes will always be out of the spotlight, since the focus is really not meant to be on them (except in the case of Aladdin), and for the most part their personalities are also minimum—or should I say were? The first few Disney princes were very bland characters, just there to be the man of our leading ladies' dreams and occasionally fight off a dragon or two, and that’s perfectly fine in context of the movies; However, in more recent films, starting in the Disney Renaissance, the princes have been gaining larger roles and been given a lot more personality. Though these characters have only been getting stronger, they are still, for the most part, shoved to the sidelines, and there is one male lead who I feel is the most unappreciated of them all, and that is none other than Frozen’s Kristoff. Though technically he's not in the official lineup what, with Frozen being its own franchise separate from the princesses, I'm still counting him as one because he would be if Frozen wasn't strong enough to stand on its own.
