A controversy has stemmed from a 2016 Disney short that has people rethinking the way characters are portrayed in cartoons.
In Disney’s “Inner Workings” some characters, namely “Kate” are drawn to have a huge backside and a tiny waist, a depiction many people found “unrealistic.”
The animated short aired right before Moana and is a six-minute animated story that follows the main character, Paul, as he’s being pulled in different directions by his internal organs.
People criticized “Kate” look including @Glitch_Plantbro who started a thread on Twitter about the abnormal-looking character. He posted the photo of “Kate” with the caption, “In no world did Pixar need to do this.”
What do you think of “unrealistic” characters in animation? Should characters look like normal people or is the exaggeration okay in animated movies?
