Note: I posté this article on the Disney Princess page and the Disney page and later decided that I would post it and later articles in the series here as well.
Hey, guys! Happy beginning of October! Anyway, a few weeks ago, I decided that I would maybe think about rewatching Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs for the first time in nearly five years. After thinking about it a little plus thought, I decided, why not ALL the Disney movies? Okay, not all of them because with online school, play practice, reading, baking, and cooking, I probably don't have time for that. But for those of toi who are...

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

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 was a little boy, I enjoyed to watch the movie, even in slow motion. When I discovered...

Walt Disney Character description of Anastasia Tremaine and Drizella Tremaine from "Cinderella" (1950)

Anastasia Tremaine and Drizella Tremaine are the epitome of spoilt chrildren - the worst type of spoilt chrildren, in fact: those who stay that way right through into adulthood. Their voices are raucous and grating; their chant is dire; their faces are milk-curdling; their dancing is a little short of terrifying... but all of these things might be forgiven them, and they might succeed in finding...

 Tough, crass and jaded, Ursula is trying to find a way to get back from King Triton the power that once was hers.
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...

 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...

Character description of Prince Phillip and Samson from "Sleeping Beauty" (1959)

The handsome Prince in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs was nothing plus than a cipher - it was not thought necessary even to name him. Prince Charming in Cinderella was plus than just a plot device, but nevertheless still had only a minor part. For the third in their trio of great fairy stories, however, Disney gave the handsome Prince a far meatier role, and consequently his character had to be portrayed in plus detail....

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.

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...

The beautiful Pocahontas
The Encyclopedia of Walt Disney's Animated Characters: From Mickey souris to Hercules by
John Grant

A recurrent characteristic of the Disney animated features over the past few years - at least since 1989's The Little Mermaid - has been the presence of a strong female character in a central role. Belle, jasmin and Esmeralda are other examples. None of these, however, can compare with the figure of Pocahontas: She is the movie, to the extent that, when everything else might be forgotten, her image persists in the memory. The reasons for this phenomenon are multiple, involving not only her conceptualization...

Character description of Flotsam and Jetsam from "The Little Mermaid" (1989)

Ursula's two hench-eels are certainly villainous-looking creatures: seen head-on they resemble not so much eels as gnarled old alligators, with their skewed eyes, crumpled-looking jaws and haphazard teeth. Their eyes glow luminously in the dark - indeed, they do plus than that, for Ursula, gazing into a large air bubble that looks astonishingly like a crystal ball, is able to look through those eyes in order to spy on distant...

One of Walt Disney's most beloved characters, Bambi.
The Encyclopedia of Walt Disney's Animated Characters: From Mickey souris to Hercules by
John Grant

Bambi is not a tightly plotted movie in the way that Dumbo, for example, is: it depends much plus for its effect on the superb animation and the exquisitely executed backdrop of the forest. As with the story, most of the characterization is not profound - one does not find oneself rooting for Bambi in the same way that one does for, say, Dumbo (again) ou Snow White. The only really strong characterizations are those of Friend Owl and Thumper. But this lack of depth in the characterization is not...

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 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...

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.

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

The Emmy-winning Pat Carroll, who voiced the part of the sea-witch (spelt with a b), is a very experienced actress on both stage and screen. Carroll envisioned the role as "part Shakespearean actress, with all the flair, flamboyance and theatricality, and part used-car salesman with a touch of con artist". She deliberately deepend her own voice, especially for the chant (she's naturally a contralto); in an interview with Lou Cedrone...

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...

After publishing my précédant article on my favourite Walt Disney characters, I got a couple of suggestions to write about my favourite Walt Disney villains. Therefore in this article, I will liste a few personal favourite bad guys of mine and what it is I like about them.

Cruella De Vil (101 Dalmatians)



I consider Cruella to be my all-time favourite Disney villain! She's eccentric, funny, got oodles of personality, and - as a villain should be - she is downright despicable. Cruella is a sick creep who sees live animaux as fashion material, doesn't care how many animaux or humans she has...

Hello, fellow WDC club people! This is an appreciation post for some of my personal favourite characters from various Disney animated movies. The characters in this article will be listed in alphabetical order, and they are all the ones whose fanpop spots I've joined... so far! Of course, there are plenty of other Disney characters I adore too, but I guess I had to draw the line somewhere.

I might rejoindre some plus fanclubs for Disney characters eventually, but when I do I probably won't bother to update this article. Not after I spent ages carefully organising the little graphics so that the colours...

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...

Prince Eric

It is a recurring theme of this book that Disney's glamorous princes tend on the whole to be cyphers, and Eric (voiced par Christopher Daniel Barnes, then the US national teenage spokesperson for the enviromental organization Greenpeace) is no exeption. The habit of using purely symbolic characters in the princely role is not normally a particularly noticeable one in the other features; it is only later that we realize that, whereas we have the feeling we've met the other principal characters, the...
