This paper aims to discuss and to problematize the gender conceptions of Princess Barbie present in an animated film and in children talk. It also discusses the new possibilities of femininity from a protagonist of animated films produced by experiences in producing films with children. The issues to be discussed are results of research, with support from CNPq, and extension projects on production of animated films with children. The reflection undertaken understands movies as cultural artifacts and children as subjects with rights and argumentative conditions to discuss and change culturally constructed ideas. The figures of the princesses appear even represented in certain standard standards. In the process of research, however, these concepts are questioned and new productions are performed in which new ways of being female differ from the norm, as forms of resistance to idealized models.
