Walt Disney Character description of Prince Aladin from "Aladdin" (1992)

As is very often the case in the Disney animated features, the story of Aladin as a character is that of growth from selfunderestimation to the realization that the individual has worth and can achieve a particular aim, which is generally living happily ever after with the mate of his choice. The different here is that Aladin tries to cheat - he makes the Genie turn him into a prince so that he can woo Jasmine, and it is...

Character description of Simba from "The Lion King" (1994)

The story of Simba is the story of the movie: Born to kingship, he is tricked into abandoning it and then deliberately turns his back on it until persuaded par others to assume his responsibilities. Stripped down like that, the story seems a very simple one, but that is not the real story. The real story is of the transformation of Simba's character through several pronouncedly different stages.
As a baby and then a cub he is what Bill Cotter...

Walt Disney Character description of Djali from "The Hunchback of Notre Dame" (1996)

Esmeralda's pet goat possesses human intelligence and a fierce loyalty to his owner. When she is persecuted par the two guards in the early rue sequence, it is Djali - before Phoebus intervenes - who initially almost sees them off, butting them with determined ferocity, even though he is a very small goat. He helps in other ways, most notably par assisting her in her oft-used disguise as a cowled male figure - he...

Third in my Slow Motion animation Gifs article Series, I give toi Beauty and the Beast from 1991.
Now, Beauty wasn't one of my favori Disney films when I grew up, but over time, I've come to be rather fond of it. The musique is great, I have the whole score (songs included) on my computer. The animation is good as well, but there are a few scenes where I think Disney could have done it better. But I'll get to them as I make plus GIFs from the movie.




Image #1: Princess Belle

Belle goes to town and sings about how everything always is the same.
I always loved this shot of Belle. She looks really beautiful here.

Image #2: Princess Belle

As she has entered the West Wing of the Beast's castle, Belle stumbles upon a torn picture of the human version of the Beast. She takes a closer look at the picture.
Now, this sequence of Belle as she studies the picture, is just perfect. Belle is really beautiful here.

Walt Disney's 32nd Animated Feature, The Lion King (1994)
Hello again, my fellow Disney fans :)

This article is similar to the one I did a while back with The Little Mermaid, but this one will be about The Lion King. Now, The Lion King, for me, is also one of my haut, retour au début favori Disney Classics. I think it has really gorgeous animation, both character animation and also the backgrounds/locations. The way the animators brought all these animaux to life is just astonishing!
Like I wrote in the piece for Mermaid, I think it's funny to watch certain scenes in slow motion. That way toi get plus of out the animation. toi can see where the animators have animated...

Tough, crass and jaded, Ursula is trying to find a way to get back from King Triton the power that once was hers.
While the animation department was busily trying to complete Oliver & Company par the imminent deadline, Ron Clements and John Musker, the two directors of The Great souris Detective were working on an adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen's beloved story "The Little Mermaid." There had been astounding growth in every branch of the department from computer-generated images to the finest character animation. There was also a villain in this new picture that would take her place alongside the greatest villains the studio had ever created. In the votes that showed Cruella De Vil as the most...

Today I am Google searching the new Disney movie "Moana" to see what it is about.
The first result is the trailer, and it features a credit for songs, which makes me exited because Disney hasn't made an animated musical since Frozen. However, the trailer doesn't tell us about Moana herself. But this suivant result explains why!
This news story is a brief history of Disney keeping princesses out of trailers. It is marketing strategy to make the whole family see the movie. But we should continue discussing the movie.
The suivant result does not tell us much, so on the suivant result we found three summaries...

Character description of King Triton from "The Little Mermaid" (1989)

The character of Triton is in many ways rather nondescript, for the mer-king's role in both the plot and the emotional subtext of the movie is as a symbol - and, at that, a symbol of two different things. First, he is the symbol of constitutional authority, convention and staidness: he is the establishment against which Ariel is rebelling, the past which she wishes to leave behind. Second, he symbolizes parental authority; in this...

 Roger Ebert's Review of Walt Disney's "The Lion King" (1994)
Roger Ebert's Review of Walt Disney's "The Lion King" (1994)
Roger Ebert: ***½ (3 and a half Stars)

My generation grew up mourning the death of Bambi's mother. Now comes "The Lion King," with the death of Mufasa, the father of the lion cub who will someday be king. The Disney animators know that cute little cartoon characters are not sufficient to manufacture dreams. There have to be dark corners, frightening moments, and ancient archetypes like the crime of regicide. "The Lion King," which is a superbly drawn animated feature, is surprisingly solemn in its subject matter, and may even be too intense for very young children.

The film is the latest in...

Walt Disney Character description of Jafar from "Aladdin" (1993)

The evil vizier is represented as a caricature villain - he has a long thin face, a curly black wisp of beard, two great spikes of something sticking out from shoulders of his customary garb, an unpleasant habit of hypnotizing people, a sinister voice, and very much more. However, the exaggeration works: the characterization is such that we early become fully aware of his evil, and we cheer when he gets his deserved comeuppance. Much...

Walt Disney Character description of Maleficent from "Sleeping Beauty" (1959)

Of all the characters in Sleeping Beauty, the one that everyone remembers, even decades later, is the wicked fairy Maleficent. She is one of the finest creations ever to come out of the Disney studio - and the brilliant transformation of her into the Dragon to fight Phillip merely adds to the strength of the characterization. Even her name - a wonderful combination of "malice" and "malevolent" - testifies to her pure evil....

Walt Disney's 28th Animated Feature, The Little Mermaid (1989)
Hello fellow Disney Fans.

Now, as toi all know, I l’amour Disney Animation. I l’amour to watch the movies, hear the songs and look at the characters. But one thing I really l’amour is watching the animation in slow motion. It gives a great insight to how much work the animators puts into their work. It's facinating to me to watch a scene ou a sequence in slow motion, as then I get plus details the suivant time I see the movies.
Now, toi all know how much I l’amour The Little Mermaid. My favori movie of all-time. Ever since I discovered to to make gifs, I have made many gifs from various Disney Classics, but...

Pocahontas' best friend, Nakoma.
The Encyclopedia of Walt Disney's Animated Characters: From Mickey souris to Hercules by
John Grant

Pocahontas's best friend, Nakoma is something of a character in chercher of a personality; in their pairing, Pocahontas is certainly the dominant one and certainly the brighter. Nakoma represents, in a subtler way than Kocoum, the reluctance of most of the Native Americans to embrace change, and thus contrasts completely with Pocahontas, who is a wild, free spirit enthusiastic to find adventure in each new moment. Their physical appearances reflect this: Pocahontas has a genuine Native American face...

Max, Prince Eric's good-natured old dog.

Character description of Max from "The Little Mermaid" (1989)

Max is Eric's big, shaggy, ebullient, flobby-eared Old English Sheepdog; as a member of that species he obviously bears quite a strong physical resemblance to the Colonel in One Hundred and One Dalmatians, but Max has no pretensions to military competence: he is everybody's fun-loving, bouncy darling.
Well, not everybody's. He alone of the land-based characters immediately recognizes Vanessa as a wrong'un, and snarls at her as ferociously as his roly-poly appearance will permit. Naturally - having adored Ariel on sight - he joins in soon afterwards with the efforts of the marine animaux to disrupt the marriage ceremony.

Character description of Belle from "Beauty and the Beast" (1991)

It was decided early that the movie's heroine should display a lot plus spirit than the somewhat passive virtue of the character in the original fairy tale. The liveaction performance for the animators' reference was supplied par Sherri Stoner, the actress who had not long before served the same funtion so very excellently for The Little Mermaid's Ariel, another feisty female part. Belle's part was spoken and sung par Paige O'Hara, a...

Walt Disney Character description of The Fairy Godmother from "Cinderella" (1950)

The absentminded Fairy Godmother - she even mislays her magic wand from time to time - was not universally approved: some critics found her too saccharine. Thomas A. Nelson, who has written one of the best global, ensemble critiques of the movie and its characters, remarks that her "jovial and absent-minded good nature comes off as a bit too sticky, that extra helping of the cute and charming which irratates rather than entertains"....

Walt Disney Character description of Shanti, The Girl from "The Jungle Book" (1967)

The little lass with a red spot on her forehead who comes down from the manvillage to captivate Mowgli is full of eastern promise. Although it will be a decade ou so before the promise turns into anything else, she nevertheless enchants Mowgli as she fetches water from the river and sings the song "My Own Home", yet another fine piece of work from the Sherman Brothers.
She has little par way of character except her basic allure, which weaves a plus powerful spell upon Mowgli than even Kaa's hypnotic attempts. Baloo advises the boy when he sees a female human for the first time: "Forget about those - they ain't nothin' but trouble!"
Mowgli, though youthful, has plus sense.
 Mowgli did not want to become part of humanity... Until, that is, he saw the Girl.

Walt Disney Character description of Jake from "The Rescuers Down Under" (1990)

The character of the Australian Mr. Competent, Jake, has a very difficult role to perform: he must be simultaneously an adventure hero and a comical figure; moreover, he mustn't be crocodile Dundee. This last point the animators seems to have taken very much to cœur, coeur for, although Jake's persona has many of the macho, tough-guy attributes of that hero and countless other Australian stereotypes, the core of the characterization...

Since "Parks and Recreation" wrapped, I've worked on a liste of Disney characters that I believe closely match our most cherished Pawnee citizens in terms of personality and (sometimes) looks.

Anna -- Leslie Knope: A bubbly go-getter whose optimism is infectious. Oh, and they both happen to l’amour consuming large amounts of sugar+would do anything for those they l’amour (including their ungrateful public).

John Silver -- Ronald Ulysses Swanson: This self-sufficient, intimidating gentleman is a man of self-dictated principles which are usually at odds with his surroundings. Although he doesn't believe...

Walt Disney Character description of The Sultan from "Aladdin" (1992)

Portly and chubby-faced, with a large turban and a small stature, the Sultan hardly conforms to one's image of the average despot, yet he is a despot toward his daughter: confined within the palace walls, she must choose a suitor of noble blood par the time she is sixteen, because that is the law. It does not occur to the Sultan until very late in the movie that, although he did not originate the law, it is within his power to change...
