This study takes a closer look at gender representation in the 150 top grossing animated films from 1990 to 2019. We examine the gap between representation, and male and female characters in lead characters, speaking roles, if speakers are male or female, unrealistic bodies, if female-led movies passed the Bechdel test and if animated films were likely going to fail the Bechdel test. Our results found that male characters have significantly more speaking roles than female characters and are overall more important in animated films than females. These results have confirmed to negatively impact the way children are socialized.
