A new short film from Disney called ‘reflect’ is the first project from the studio to feature a “plus size heroine” dealing with personal issues including “body dysmorphia.”
From The Daily Mail:
Disney has created its first plus-size protagonist for a powerful short film about body dysmorphia.
In the company’s 85-year history of making movies, plus-size characters have only ever featured in the roles of villains or extras – and fans are full of praise for the change.
