Right now, with everything going on in the world right now, I am choosing to remain positive because I know where there is love, there is change. Change is the only thing that keeps hope alive for what we dream and desire in our futures. It is my hope this little piece of positivity and mention of inclusion will be a bright spot in your day.
This year, I am seeing way more representation in the movies and with the literal BILLION Dollar success of movies like Black Panther, many are taking note of how important inclusion is for everyone. Prior to this year, there was some minority presence in some Disney / Marvel movies, but nothing quite as spectacular as 2018.
I am a Disney / Marvel fangirl (in my heart) and have always supported almost every movie that has been released. However, please note, this in no way discounts the involvement of EVERYONE else in these movies.
Let’s quickly discuss a few examples…
Black Panther – Enough said! Too many to name individually but it was filled with all kinds of #BlackExcellence throughout the movie!
In my opinion, a result of this inclusion means more “individuals of colors” are now new fans of the movies that weren’t fans before. In my own life, I have friends that didn’t make it a point to see Disney / Marvel movies, but when Black Panther was released they changed their tune and experienced more movies since then.
When we can see “US” it makes us excited and know we matter too! Kudos Disney Movies and Marvel!
Until Next Time!
