I strongly disagree with anyone who says Maleficent isn’t the best Disney villain. No singing, no dancing, no long expositions about her plans, no tolerance for bumbling comedy sidekicks (she electrocutes a whole room full of minions when she finds out they’ve fucked up and spent the last few years searching for a baby), just outright malicious intent.
I mean let’s take a look at her motivations compared to other popular Disney villains:SCAR - Wanted to become King. 
URSULA - Wanted to rule the seas.
WICKED QUEEN - Wanted to rule as the most beautiful woman in the land.
JAFAR - Wanted to rule in the Sultan’s place and/or obtain ultimate power.
Maleficient, by contrast, didn’t want any of that. She didn’t want more power. She didn’t want fame. She didn’t want to rule. She just wanted to raise hell. This is the woman who decided that every newborn child in the kingdom should die and that the land should be covered in darkness for one reason - SHE WASN’T INVITED TO A MOTHERFUCKING PARTY.
That’s right, the evil bitch basically condemned an entire kingdom to die at her hands because she didn’t get invited to a christening.
This is not a woman with a motivation. She cannot be reasoned with. Her actions cannot be rationalized. She is evil for the fun of being evil, not because she wants something.
THAT, my friends, is the ultimate villain. One who knows they’re evil and LOVES it. 


This is amazing, like omfg

and this is why she’s my fave. unapologetically badass.

This scene was very moving to me when I was a child, and it continues to move me even now. Esmeralda’s humbleness is always an intense trait to witness, both for those of us who have more than Esmeralda had, and for those who had the same or less.

The comparison between her and the Holy Mother really puts things in perspective. When I hear her speak the words, I like to imagine her speaking directly to the hateful. It specifically reminds me of all of the people of faith in our current time/world who do not follow the true lessons of their faiths/religions/spiritualities and live their lives hating others and bringing them down (just like the most realistic villain in the Disney canon, Frollo himself).

I have always regarded “God Help The Outcasts” as the most intense Disney song/scene. If I had to pick one song that I would really want Disney fans to think about, it would be this one.

Cindy Mannerism I like: “Good morning” to her step-family 

alantlm:

As the title indicates, I like it when Cinderella says “Good Morning” to her step-family…

At first glance, why would Cinderella even say this?

image

Her mornings consist of her waking up in her small bedroom in the chateau’s highest tower, atop a steep winding staircase. At 6am (clock rings that many times), she dresses herself in her rags and begins to do all the household chores by herself (=primarily get breakfast for Lucifer, barnyard animals, and step-family)… meanwhile her stepfamily is sleeping in, only has to ring to get breakfast in bed, and gives her more chores to do.

image

For someone who is “abused, humiliated, and finally forced to become a servant in her own house” why would I like it when she says “Good morning”?

It’s because it’s a showcase that “through it all, Cinderella remained ever gentle and kind for with each dawn she found new hope…” Although here, it’s not only each dawn, but also each encounter.

-

The first bedroom is Drizella’s and Cinderella says, “Good morning,” and adds, “sleep well?” But Drizella grumbles, “as if you cared,” and gives her clothes to iron, “take that ironing and have it back in an hour. One hour, you hear?”… “Yes, Drizella,” says Cinderella.

image

Does Cinderella let this affect her hope?

-

The second bedroom is Anastasia’s and Cinderella again says, “Good morning.” But Anastasia mutters, “well, it’s about time,” and gives her clothes to mend, “Don’t forget the mending. And don’t be all day getting it done, either!”… “Yes, Anastasia,” says Cinderella.

image

Again, does Cinderella let this affect her hope?

-

The third bedroom is Lady Tremaine’s and after she tells Cinderella to come in, Cinderella yet again says, “Good morning.” But Lady Tremaine orders, “Pick up the laundry and get on with your duties.”… “Yes, Stepmother,” says Cinderella.

image

-

The answer to both questions seem to be NO.

Cinderella’s morning interaction with her step-family is exchanging breakfast trays for clothes for ironing, mending, and laundry - all which have to be balanced. But she doesn’t let their behaviour affect her attitude because she greets each member of her stepfamily cheerfully each time, and very likely every day.

As we see, she lives by the advice she gave Bruno, “I know it isn’t easy but at least we should try to get along together”. She tries all the time.

image

-

In contrast, she doesn’t punish anyone for her problems nor does she take the aggression she receives upon anyone else; which I think are called “displacement” and “projection”… If she did, she would be behaving just like her step-family.

image

-

In conclusion, Cinderella’s the kind of person who is always going to be approachable and does her best to get the day’s interactions off on the right start.

So Cindy, Good morning to you! :D

After watching Guardians of the Galaxy, I’m convinced that Pinocchio is a Flora Colossus ( http://marvelcinematicuniverse.wikia.com/wiki/Flora_colossus ) .
In other words, he’s the same species as Groot.
THINK ABOUT IT:
1) He’s a sentient being made of wood.
2) He can make parts of his body grow longer.
3) He can sprout flowers and leaves from his body.
4) Maybe he has a  (much) wider vocabulary than Groot, b/c Geppetto inadvertently restructured his vocal chords while carving him out of wood.
5) SPOILER ALERT!!!
Any of Groot’s severed body parts automatically comes back to life and grows into a new life form.
What if a Flora Colossus lost its arm; and that arm somehow landed on Earth? Then someone picked it up and carved it into a puppet? The rest is history.

OK I’m not that serious about this theory. But don’t be surprised if Marvel  works this theory into their future movies! They did play the song “I’ve Got No Strings” in the Age of Ultron trailer … 
Just my 2 cents ^_^

SW Mannerism I like: fixing her hair 

alantlm:

I honestly don’t know if this will become a series of posts of “Snow White Mannerisms I like…” but Snow White has lots of mannerisms that I like - kinda obvious since she is my favourite princess.

However, many of the things I like about Snow don’t get addressed much… One of the reasons, I suspect, is because much of what she does is subtle and only happens for a split-second. Thus, such things are very easily overlooked and then forgotten.

So I hope to point out some of the things I really like about Snow so you can enjoy her character too.

-

As the title indicates, I like it when Snow White fixes her hair…

image

…but before I talk about that, I’m going to talk about basic grooming and hygiene.

-

Grooming and Hygiene

At the basic level, grooming and hygiene are important to health. Things like bathing and washing hands and hair, also wearing clean clothes, etc..

During Whistle While you Work we see her and the animals cleaning the house and washing the dwarfs’ clothes. And later, when Snow White sees that the hands of the miners are visible dirty, she’s teaches them to wash before eating.

image

The reason I started with grooming and hygiene is because it’s usually necessary for being presentable and well-mannered. It keeps one not only looking good but also healthy.

-

Presentability and Manners

After that basic level, there’s concern and pride about one’s physical appearance. I wouldn’t necessarily call this vanity as that would be concern and pride to excessive and irrational amounts. 

As I’ve said, I like Snow White fixing her hair before knocking on the (dwarfs) door. There’s only one chance to make a first impression and so she makes sure she’s presentable.

Considering her situation (she’s lost and needs place to stay; the Queen wants to kill her; her hosts are going to be putting themselves in danger by keeping her), she needs to establish good relations right away because she’s going to ask for a lot of help.

In fact, as for fixing her hair, Snow does it at the beginning of the movie, before going out on the balcony to meet the Prince

image

Although she’s wearing a raggedy dress and is a scullery maid, she still tries to look her best and give a good impression. (Btw, she’s lucky the worst parts of her dress are hidden by the balcony)

-

Presentability and Manners in others

This idea of presentability and manners can be seen with the Prince. He takes off his hat before talking with her and introducing himself.

image

And even Grumpy checks himself in the mirror before leaving Snow White who is kissing the drawfs goodbye

image

The Prince doesn’t really need to take off his hat nor does Grumpy really need to check himself in the mirror but they do because it’s manners and it shows that they have respect and consideration for those they’re encountering.

-

So yeah, I like it when Snow White fixes her hair because, to me, it shows she cares about her own appearance and how she appears to others. (I know it’s a trait I could use more of)

The Classic Disney Princesses do NOT NEED a MAN 

alantlm:

The CLASSIC DISNEY PRINCESSES do NOT NEED a MAN

  • Snow (Snow White, 1937)
  • Cindy (Cinderella, 1950)
  • Aurora (Sleeping Beauty, 1959)

-

First, let’s look at the living environment of these girls. This will give context and incentive for their specific wants.

PART 1: LIVING ENVIRONMENT

Snow, Cindy, and Aurora grow up isolated and have no (human) friend - they only have animals for company.

In addition to growing up isolated, both Snow and Cindy grew up orphaned young girls and directly suffer due to a jealous older woman: the Queen dresses Snow in rags and forces her to be a scullery maid; Lady Tremaine abuses, humiliates, and forces Cindy to become a servant.

Cumulative Summary

Snow, Cindy, and Aurora are all isolated and friendless. Only Aurora isn’t abused.

PART 2a: SNOW - I’M WISHING

I’m wishing for the one I love
To find me today
I’m hoping 
And I’m dreaming of
The nice things he’ll say

Summary: wants someone to love her. 

The context for Snow is that the Queen is the kind of person who would kill her out of vanity, twice (=huntsman, apple). The Queen is so evil that her name/reputation alone is enough to fear (=Snow’s reaction of “the Queen” to the Huntsman; the Dwarfs’ reaction of “the Queen” to Snow).

So “I’m Wishing” is a song where a princess-turned-maid, who is murderously hated, wants to be loved.

PART 2b: CINDY - A DREAM IS A WISH YOUR HEART MAKES

A dream is a wish your heart makes
When you’re fast asleep
In dreams you lose your heartaches
Whatever you wish for, you keep
Have faith in your dreams and someday
Your rainbow will come smiling thru
No matter how your heart is grieving
If you keep on believing
the dream that you wish will come true

Summary: have faith in dreams and keep believing

Although this song isn’t specific dreams, it does tell us that - despite domestic abuse - Cinderella’s spirit isn’t broken. (She’s even slightly rebellious because she dreams in spite of her step-family: “Well, there’s one thing. They can’t order me to stop dreaming.”)

Later in the movie, her dream becomes specific. What are the mice doing they sing their working song? What does Cindy describe as “completely wonderful”? What does her Fairy Godmother give her during the song’s sad background reprise (=listen when Cindy’s crying at the bench)? The answer: the ability to go to the ball.

At the ball, she sings “So this is Love” duet song and Cindy sings this line: “So this is the miracle that I’ve been dreaming of”. Now, in addition to going to the ball, Cindy also wants to be loved.

So “A Dream is a Wish your Heart makes” is a song where a gentleman’s daughter-turned-servant wants a night out and to be loved.

PART 2c: AURORA - I WONDER

I wonder, I wonder
I wonder why each 
Little bird has someone
To sing to sweet things to
A gay little love melody?
I wonder, I wonder
If my heart keeps singing
Will my song go winging
To someone who’ll find me
And bring back a love song to me?

Summary: wants to know if she will be loved

Apart from her aunts, Aurora has known literally no one. Thus, she has had no opportunities to develop a platonic or romantic relationship. Not only does she sing about how the birds have love, but around her are pairs of rabbits, squirrels, and chipmunks. (Maybe all couples?)

A bit later, Aurora laments being “treat[ed] like a child” and how her guardians, “never want [her] to meet anyone.” However, she’s slightly rebellious because she playfully dreams in disobeying her aunt’s life-limiting rules by meeting a stranger - a romantic prince with whom she can walk and talk; similar to how the birds fly and sing with each other.

Yes, she says “prince” but does that actually mean “prince and nothing but a prince” or it is just the romantic fantasy of a teenage girl who just wants to meet someone - anyone? (Part 5 will address this)

So “I Wonder” is a song where someone, who feels the the need for friendship and/or romance - but has never had the opportunity - wants it. 

Cumulative Summary

Snow, Cindy, and Aurora are all isolated and friendless. Only Aurora isn’t abused.

All these girls want a basic human need: companionship and/or being loved.

PART 3 - SITUATIONS WHEN WANTS COME TRUE

For both Snow and Aurora, their wants start coming true while they are singing. Snow, to the best of her knowledge, is singing to herself and is dressed in rags. Similarly, Aurora is singing and dancing to herself and her animal friends, and wearing her peasant outfit… however, their solitary singing is surprised by an impromptu duet.

For Cindy, her wants become true when her Fairy Godmother gives her the ability to go to the ball. (Nothing about meeting a prince and nothing about making him fall in love with her)

Cumulative Summary

Snow, Cindy, and Aurora are all isolated and friendless. Only Aurora isn’t abused.

All these girls want a basic human need: companionship and/or being loved.

Their needs for friendship and romantic start becoming fulfilled while they were being themselves; not trying to attract a man.     

PART 4- SITUATIONS AFTER WANTS COME TRUE

For Snow, after she flees from the prince, much later in the movie, she sings “Someday my Prince will Come”. In a way, the song is almost a continuation of “I’m Wishing” because she’s still wishing for “the one I love / to find [her]”. 

Now she sings about a prince because that’s who her love actually is. And it’s not love because he’s a prince, it’s love because she wants “to be happy forever” and “find love anew” with him. Again, like originally, she just wants to be loved.

For Cindy, after she flees the ball, she apologizes for getting carried away at ball which was “so wonderful”. After that, then she talks about meeting a handsome guy who had approached her and asked her to dance (while she was looking lost).

Note that she doesn’t lament the fact that she didn’t meet the prince or that she didn’t make some guy fall in love her - she would only do that if that was her want. Because her want was just to go to the ball, she was happy - prince or not; man or not.

For Aurora, after she is told that she can’t meet the stranger, she is pretty much told that everything she has ever known is, in essence, a lie.

She cries due to many things but one of those things is the fact that she still can’t pursue the opportunity to create friendships and chose romantic relationships of her choosing. Unlike before when she was treated like a child, now she can’t do things due to being a princess.

Cumulative Summary

Snow, Cindy, and Aurora are all isolated and friendless. Only Aurora isn’t abused.

All these girls want a basic human need: companionship and/or being loved.

Their needs for friendship and romantic start becoming fulfilled while they were being themselves; not trying to attract a man.

None of them specifically lament over the fact they didn’t get a man. 

PART 5 - PRINCE

Snow White

  • Wearing scullery maid rags (=low social status)
  • Sings “I’m Wishing” for her true love. Doesn’t know who that is.
  • Sings “Someday my Prince will Come” after she finds out her love is a prince. 
  • Her second song isn’t only about marrying a prince, it’s also about being happy and being loved.

Snow wanted love and it only so happened her love was a prince.

Cinderella

  • Uses “I haven’t met the Prince” as an excuse to leave
  • Imagines that “even the Prince himself couldn’t have been more…”
  • Is clearly surprised when she hears the Prince is in love with some mysterious glass-slipper girl.
  • Is just an “eligible maiden” who was wearing a dress - like everyone else. The proclamation supports this: “every single maiden in our beloved kingdom, without prearranged exception”

Cindy just wanted to go to the ball and had no idea with whom she was interacting.

Aurora

  • She’s a peasant and so “that’s impossible! How could [she] marry a prince”
  • When she could marry a prince, “But, but I can’t! He’s coming here tonight, I promised to meet him.”

Aurora - even when given the opportunity to marry a prince - just meet the stranger again.

Cumulative Summary

Snow, Cindy, and Aurora are all isolated and friendless. Only Aurora isn’t abused.

All these girls want a basic human need: companionship and/or being loved.

Their needs for friendship and romantic start becoming fulfilled while they were being themselves; not trying to attract a man.

None of them specifically lament over the fact they didn’t get a man. 

None of them intended to marry a prince nor give the impression they were princesses.

 PART 6 - SUMMARY / CONCLUSION

Snow, Cindy, and Aurora are all isolated and friendless. Thus, they lack a basic human need: the need for companionship and/or being loved.

To cease being alone and lonely, these girls would most likely need to be with someone. Logistical fact. However, this is not necessarily to say “I need a man”.

It’s to say these girls are experiencing and acknowledging their romantic feelings and imagination. It’s to say they want to pursue these feelings of attraction and may want to experiment in this natural biological and/or psychological process.

It’s to say the Classic Disney Princesses want to love and want to be loved.

emeraldfaeries whispered, "I went to the Magic Kingdom a few weeks ago for spring break and was hoping to find some merchandise related to my fav Hunchback of Notre Dame, but after hours of searching I found none at all. I then went to customer service to ask if they had anything at all related to it and the man said, "No of course not" and I asked "Why 'of course not'" and he said "Because it's a terrible movie". Have you ever encountered a Disney employee that has been this disrespectful? And why is there no HNB merch?"

I haven’t yet met a rude Disney employee, although I’ve had friends who work for Disney and they’ve told me quite a few stories.

For some strange reason, The Hunchback of Notre Dame is regarded as an “underrated” Disney movie, even though it was a hit when it came out in theaters. Personally, I think that the dark storyline intimidates both children and adults and that is why Disney isn’t trying to make any more money off of it now. Also, personally, I think it’s the most “serious” and most adult of the 53 films Disney Animation Studios have given us, which makes it less marketable for children. :(
