After having the character Elsa in the movie Frozen say “You can’t marry a man you just met,” there was a general response of, “About time, Disney,” and also this:
The movie has multiple characters expound on the idea of getting to know someone first, and (mild spoiler I guess) it doesn’t end with a single wedding. The, “We’ve just met, it’s clearly true love, let’s get married right NOW,” that is so traditional to Disney movies does not appear. Instead it gets taken down.
What are some other common things in fiction that you think need someone, say an Elsa, to stand up to them and say, “No. Bad idea,” or at the very least have opposition shown to them?
