By Jennifer Vickers, CBS NewsOne of the most popular Disney characters of all time is Elsa from Frozen.
Her name is also used by the characters Snow White, Cinderella and Ariel.
The film, directed by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and written by Byron Howard and Alan Taylor, has grossed more than $1 billion worldwide.
But some fans are concerned that Disney might make changes to the character and the way they portray women in the film.
“The Frozen movie franchise is really about women and gender in general,” said Michelle Pendergast, a filmmaker and activist who has worked to promote gender equality in Hollywood.
“It’s not just about Anna, Elsa, and Rapunzel.”
Pendergasts said she is disappointed by the way Disney has handled the character, which was created in 1998 by animators who were trying to bring a softer, more “dignified” look to Disney characters.
“They did not create this character to be the villain of Frozen,” PenderGast said.
“This is a hero and a princess.
We are supposed to like and be like them.”
Pendragon is a character in the Disney animated feature film Aladdin that has a sister named Jafar who is voiced by Jazzy Jeffery.
He is a handsome prince who is obsessed with beauty and has an evil brother named Nars.
In Aladdin, the brothers fight the evil sorcerer, Jasmine.
PenderGasts said it’s disappointing that Disney has not focused more on diversity in their portrayals of women.
“Women are the only ones in the whole Disney universe who have a princess, and they are all the villains,” Pendragon said.
“It’s a shame that the studio decided to just ignore the fact that women make up 80 percent of the Disney audience.”
Disney said it is reviewing the film for potential changes.
In a statement, Disney said, “Disney and Frozen are part of a long tradition of inspiring audiences to be optimistic, creative and courageous.
We believe that, together, they can transform the world.”
Disney has also released a short film about a young princess named Jasmine, which is set to debut on Sunday.
The short film will also feature a new character, Snow White.
