It occurs to me...when people discuss nonwhite characters in Disney films, no one mentions Mowgli. I wonder why.
thats true. but few actually think of the Jungle Book when they hear disney
So we have Mowgli, Pocahontas and Tiana as non-white main characters... Anyone else?
Ariel is a mermaid if that counts.
What about Kida from Atlantis?
Everyone in Lilo and Stitch except the fat guy with the ice cream is either Pacific Islander or an alien.
Honestly I'm not sure about Myrtle. She looks like she could be white, but I'm guessing half-white, half-something else, but I'm not sure what that something else is since I don't think we ever see her father.
