“After seeing the concept art for Princess and the Frog, I think the movie was robbed of it’s potential. Especially, since Disney’s normal composer worked on Tangled but we got stuck with Randy Newman.”

So I just need to get this off my chest:

For me David Kawena from Lilo and Stitch is the ultimate Disney prince because he is there for Nani AND Lilo and even Stitch despite everything that’s going on in their lives. They’re going through some tough stuff. Their parents die and all of the sudden Nani has to be a mom to her sister who is socially awkward and depressed and that’s hard enough as it is and then she gets her this ‘dog’ and everything gets harder and even though she can’t return David’s feelings he’s still there for them through everything. Even aliens. He’s amazing. I was watching Lilo and Stitch with my niece the other day and I cried watching David go through it all. He is the perfect guy. Like I just get emotional thinking about him.

Imagine if you had someone like David in your life - male or female. You would feel like a prince/princess even if you were living with next to nothing.

David is the ultimate Disney prince - even though he isn’t a Disney prince. He should be considered one.

Disney rant - over.

There's a lot of talk and discussion about the disappointment on the direction Disney has taken their adaptation of Hans Christian Anderson's The Snow Queen. In particular, the utter disappointment in the fact that Disney has narratively and artistically decided to ape the process they used in Tangled, giving future audiences a female protagonist that is a): akin to their Rapunzel in every meaning of the word and b): that she follows the template of yet another variation of their blonde, blue/green eyed protagonist. To say nothing of the frustration over the minimizing the focus on a female geared journey that focused on saving her male friend and replacing it with a battle between embittered sisters and an adrenaline junkie male, the frustration eventually gave way to this: thisshouldhavebeenfrozen.

“I want a well-animated Princess and the Frog sequel about Tiana meeting Naveen’s family in his home country (but no Charlotte please… no offense but I would want Tiana to have the spotlight to herself for a change)”



Gotta say, as content as I am with Princess and the Frog as a one-shot (because, oh lord, those awful DTDVD sequels), that would've been an interesting shortie to have seen put into production over something like Eugene and Rapunzel's marriage. What say you? N/Y?

BECAUSE TUMBLR never fails to entertain and inform at the same time it gets Disney fans hackles up in a mighty knot:

APPARENTLY, THE FOLLOWING SCENE is a demonstration of the daily racism dealt with by Hawaiians whenever tourists populate the area. They're often ignorant, and speak without thinking. So what does our protagonist, Lilo, decide to do? Make them look like asses via exploiting their general ignorance of the area and never revealing the routine nature of the Tsunami siren check. Good times.

According to someone on tumblr:
It was clearly something the crew was very reluctant to get rid of if it made it all the way to rough-clean (and in a few scenes clean!), fully inbetweened animation. That is like, thousands and thousands of dollars and weeks (months?!) of labour. Maybe a reluctant producer decided they would alienate their white middle-class American audiences by making them feel “too guilty” and pressed them to drop it? It’s unfortunate, it’s one of the most honest accounts of racism in a Disney movie (which is why it’s believable that someone got uncomfortable and made a case to get it chopped). Designing entertainment by committee for maximum marketability is probably the most heartbreaking process in Hollywood.
