The image of Disney princesses has changed in people’s minds over the years, with more female characters becoming confident and courageous rather than relying on the sidekicks as they once did. Therefore, this article will conduct interviews to examine whether Disney Princess movies have subtly changed the thoughts and behaviours of contemporary Chinese girls. Interviews will be conducted with five girls between the ages of 16 and 24 via both online and offline platforms and concluded that young girls were influenced by recent Disney movies the most rather than previous ones with respect to romantic relationships, values, and thoughts on patriarchy. The author also discusses the impact on them, suggesting that there are innate as well as acquired social factors involved. With education and exposure to cultural diversity, women reflecting on the Disney movies they have watched in the past have gained a new understanding of the above topics.
