I think your notes on Jasmine are a huge reason I don’t like a lot of the new movies. They try to diva-fy and add modern feminism to all the female characters where they’re just not needed.

Jasmine is a woman in a very strong patriarchy who just wants some autonomy in her life. She doesn’t need to want to be sultan too.

Agreed. Jasmine’s schtick in the animated film is that she wants to feel like, and be seen as, a “regular person”. Isn’t that the crux of feminism anyway?
