I think for companies like Pixar's and other, their depiction and development of their masculine characters is more a way to connect with the younger male. Some examples would be, like the book states, Buzz and Woody, Mr. Incredible, Steve McQueen and even characters like Harry Potter or Peeta from the Hunger Games. For girls, at a young age, they connect and find their role model quite easily in the numerous princess stories out there. Although, for boys, most of them, find it in today's violent society of what is depicted in video games or violent shows since that all looks "cool" but for Pixar to target that younger audience first it gives that young boy a more a more socially acceptable and a "right path to follow" role modal to follow and learn from whether it be inspired on how to handle things emotionally or even becoming that alpha-male and learning the leadership role.

Discussion Question: With Disney's captivating powers do you think it does enough to steer/teach many kids the social acceptances of life such as violence is not always the answer or don't do something wrong because you think it's "cool"?
