Disney's new viral ad encourages girls to be more than just princesses

Disney's latest ad campaign has been widely praised by fans and critics alike. The Disney films have had an undoubtable effect on many children across the world, but they haven't been without criticism... The film company has often found itself criticised for encouraging girls to be passive and accepting the world around them as it is - but this new ad acts as a direct message to that.

"The #DreamBigPrincess photography campaign encourages kids around the world to dream big. Nineteen photographers from fifteen countries have created a series of images featuring real-world girls and women." the company wrote online.

In the video, girls from all walks of life can be seen dressed in famous Disney Princess outfits, but are taking part in activities you'd never normally see them do.
