Using cultural studies as a theoretical and methodological framework, this capstone explores the development of American values through animated Disney films. This study looks at classic, renaissance, and contemporary films, from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937) to The Princess and the Frog (2009). By examining these different eras, we can follow the progression of American ideals over nearly seven decades.
