A high school student from Farmville, Virginia has started a petition to get Disney to make a movie about a plumper princess. Jewel is plus-size herself, and obviously wise beyond her years. Her petition states, quote, "Studies show that a child's confidence correlates greatly with how much representation they have in the media.
"It would be revolutionary for Disney to show support to a group of girls who are otherwise horrendously bullied by the media.
"It would make many young girls feel confident and worthy to see a strong character that looks like them. This move on Disney's part would have an amazing positive ripple effect in people all around the world."
As of last night the petition had more than 17,000 signatures. Is it time for such a move? Bill & Tracy
