Hi guys, this is now my final post for my coursework. I’ve really enjoyed writing this for you all to read, it’s been fun finding out all the information I have and sharing it with you. I think it’s clear from all the research carried out that we definitely love Disney for the nostalgia, for the memories it brings us from our childhood, from simpler times.
I thought as a final post I would dedicate this to a wonderful little girl who turns herself into her favourite Disney Princesses and sings her favourite songs, a dream we all had as children. I came across the videos of Claire Ryann that are created by her father and posted on social media. These videos started as a bit of fun between a father and his daughter but were soon shared around the world creating a little Disney superstar. I remember first seeing her videos last year when her dad uploaded her singing A Part of Your World from The Little Mermaid at age 3. The video was shared all over the world and eventually encouraged the duo to create and upload more wonderful videos from Disney. Claire has become a little celebrity due to her videos and has even appeared on a number of American TV shows, including The Ellen DeGeneres Show, meaning she is recognised all over the world.
These videos show the power of Disney, they went from being a bit of fun for the family and has led to stardom even leading to Claire delving into acting and featuring in a new film surrounding the story of The Little Mermaid. They show the way Disney can bring a family and strangers together, all with their love and appreciation for Disney and the happiness they can see it brings to a small child. I loved seeing that first video, which then led me to follow them on social media because of the smile it put on my face, seeing such a small girl sing every word to a song and feeling the joy the music brought to her, and that’s the magic of Disney! We don’t just love Disney because we feel nostalgic, we love it because of the joy and happiness it can bring to everyone around us.
Thank you all for reading my posts and I hope they were as fun for you to read as they were for me to write and I hope I managed to teach you a thing or two about Disney through my love for it. If any of you are interested in the videos of Claire singing her favourite songs then here is the link to her Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/tinymusician/
Oh, and Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar’s Revenge, definitely worth seeing!
