Dreamworks to Make Adventure Movie With Black Girl Protagonist

“If you caught Mr. Peabody and Sherman or Rio 2 in theaters, you probably also saw an adorable short called “Almost Home” about a group of aliens in a spaceship searching for a planet to settle in. 

That was a preview for Home, an animated space adventure set in the future that will star Dreamworks’ first human protagonist of color since 1998’s The Prince of Egypt and only the studio’s second female protagonist after Monsters vs. Aliens (its third if we’re counting The Croods).”

“In 2007, London-based photographer Ben Hopper started “Natural Beauty,” a photo series designed to challenge what he described as the societal “brainwashing” done by the beauty industry.

Now, nearly seven years later, Hopper released his first official set of these photographs to The Huffington Post. Using an eclectic group of models, actresses, designers and friends, Hopper’s pictures highlight a woman’s beauty, her armpit hair, and the timely reminder that those two things are in no way mutually exclusive.”
