30 Day Disney Challenge: Day Three

Day Three: Your favorite heroine

Miss Price. Angela Lansbury played an amateur witch who saves England from the Nazis. How awesome is that? And she did it all while dealing with three orphan brats, David Tomlinson wanting to put her in showbiz, and Roddy McDowall trying to get into her pants (trufax).

Unlike other Disney female heroes she was fiercely independent and self-assured. (Until Mulan came along it seemed like the primary function of the heroine was to deal with her private love life). Also ”witch heroines” aren’t common to begin with, but I found it has been rarer in Disney movies. As a proper, intelligent woman, Miss Eglentine Price gets my respect.

“I don’t believe in giving animals ridiculous names. I call him Cosmic Creepers, because that’s the name he came with.”
“You must face the age of not believing, doubting everything you ever knew. Until at last, you start believing there’s something wonderful in you!”
