- Keira Knightley banned “Cinderella” and “The Little Mermaid” in her home.
- She does allow some Disney movies though, including “Frozen” and “Moana.”
- She used Elsa from “Frozen” to explain why there are problems with other Disney movies.
Keira Knightley has banned some Disney movies in her home, but has exceptions.
The 33-year-old actress told the Press Association what movies she lets her 3-year-old daughter, Edie, watch.
“‘Moana’ is big in our house, ‘Inside Out’ is big in our house,” she said. “I just wonder what Elsa (“Frozen”) would say to Ariel (“The Little Mermaid”) and Cinderella because Elsa has some serious opinions about Anna (her sister) going off with a guy that she’s only just met and saying she would marry him.”
She continued using “Frozen” and Elsa as an example on why “The Little Mermaid” and “Cinderella” are not allowed in her home.
“What would Elsa say to Ariel, who gives up her voice for a man?” she said. “A man, by the way, she has only seen dance round a ship and then drown, And it’s 100% amazing of Ariel to save the guy, I’m totally up for that, but what would Elsa make of that? I think Elsa would be like: ‘Babe, you’ve got to get to know him better, don’t give up your voice just yet.”
The “Nutcracker and the Four Realms” star explained to Ellen DeGeneres in October the problems she had with “Cinderella” and “The Little Mermaid.”
In addition to Ariel giving up her voice for a man, Knightley pointed out how Cinderella “waits around for a rich guy to rescue her.”
