Disney is a well-known figure in the entertainment industry, and its influence extends to many aspects of society, including how people interpret gender roles. This study aims to focus on investigating the gender stereotype that is being portrayed in Disney films both externally and internally. The paper further confirms the Disney has transcended the damsel in distress trope in recent decades, transitioning to symbolise and even enhance current feminist principles. Beside that, this research finds that Disney films increase female's inspiration for feminism and independence, and simply boost female's position. The evolution and process of feminist characters in Disney films is then analysed and shown.
