Why Keira Knightley’s Daughters Aren’t Allowed To Watch Some Disney Princess Movies

Being a damsel in distress, singing with animals, and giving up everything for a guy she just met? Keira Knightley isn’t a fan of the Disney princesses that pretty much started these tropes. In fact, the Disney princess movies that do feature such tropes are the ones she won’t allow her daughters to watch.

“I’m being very careful about fairy tales with my kid because I don’t like the message that a lot of them have. So ‘The Little Mermaid’ has been banned,” the actress stated to USA Today. Another Disney classic that she doesn’t want her daughters to watch is “Cinderella,” probably the most famous Disney princess movie. The jury is still out on “Snow White.” Knightley said, “I haven’t looked at ‘Snow White’ again, but that may be banned, as well.” 

As for which Disney princess movies her daughters are allowed to watch, Knightley has claimed she’s a big fan of “Frozen,” which teaches children about the importance of friendship and sisterly love. But it’s the adventurous and brave “Moana” that’s her favorite Disney princess and movie by far.
