RWBY: Anime Goldilocks?

The fourth trailer for RWBY is out, this time focussing on the character Yellow.

The rumor of RWBY being an anime-style treatment of popular fairy tales is now carrying even less weight. Red seemed like Red Riding Hood, given the red hood and the fact that she was fighting wolves. White had a significant nod towards Snow White,¬†given the fixation on mirrors in the trailer’s lyrics. Black was a stretch, but it seemed like she could be Belle from Beauty and the Beast, given that scattered mentions refer to her as Blake Belladonna and that she refers to her companion as Adam, which is the name of the Beast in Disney’s adaptation.

The connection between Yellow and Goldilocks is slim and verging on nonexistent. She’s a young and adventurous blonde girl, the word “gold” appears in her lyrics, she fights a DJ in a bear mask, and that’s really all I have.

Though the fairy tale connections have decreased significantly since the premier of Red’s trailer, I’m still looking forward to this, as I’m sure that it will be a great independent animated series regardless.
