Since 2016, Disney’s “Dream Big, Princess” movement has inspired girls around the world to realize their dreams.

We’re happy to share today that a new series of #DreamBigPrincess digital shorts, created by young filmmakers, is on the way that will inspire girls everywhere to dream, create and celebrate who they are by showcasing well-known and beloved role models.

Plans for the series were unveiled at the United Nations Foundation’s Girl Up Leadership Summit in Washington D.C. Each aspiring filmmaker will be paired with an inspirational interview subject spanning a diverse range of professions. The young women will capture the stories of these incredible individuals, along with their advice for achieving success. Jennifer Lee, director/writer of “Disney’s Frozen” and CCO of Walt Disney Animation Studios, is just one of the talented women who will be featured in the series. Check out the video below to hear what excites her most about this project.

In addition to supporting young aspiring filmmakers and sharing inspiring stories around the world, the #DreamBigPrincess campaign aims to make a tangible difference for girls who face challenges in achieving their dreams. Through Disney’s collaboration with Girl Up, for each like or share of a video or photo with #DreamBigPrincess on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter, Disney Worldwide Services will donate US $1 to Girl Up, in support of girls’ leadership and empowerment (minimum donation: $500,000/maximum donation: $1 million). This charitable activation begins October 10 and run through November 20, 2018.

  • Thank you Disney for this world-worthy cause. As a father to a young daughter (who loves everything Disney), I am grateful to have a wonderful venue through which my daughter can learn about how to grow and become a sweet, smart and strong young lady.
