Yesterday the kids and I watched Buzz Lightyear of Star Command. It’s a cute 2-D movie featuring Buzz Lightyear in full space ranger mode, fighting Zurg and setting the galaxy to rights.
In the film, Buzz gets a new partner in Mira Nova, an alien princess who can fly, move through walls, and snap a one-liner like a wet towel:
She’s voiced by Nicole Sullivan, and she is cool beans.
Partway through the movie, Little Miss Sunshine says:
“What is the princess doing?”
Me: “They are fighting the bad guys. The space rangers are good and they are fighting Zurg.”
She: “But, she’s a princess.”
Me: “Yes, and also a space ranger.”
She: “But, princesses can’t fight. She might get hurt! She should just watch.”
MOTHER. OF. GOD.
Memo to self: Force a viewing Buzz Lightyear of Star Command every single day, until the Disney Princess brainwashing is reversed.
AS LONG AS IT TAKES. Good grief.
