Walt Disney Character beschrijving of Cinderella from "Cinderella" (1950)

The character of Cinderella was posed in live action door Helene Stanley who, to jugde door stills of her performance, was even meer beautiful than the screen Cinderella - although she was brunette rather than blonde. In a 1982 interview with Kur Wiley, Marc Davis, largely responsible for animating Cinderella, compared the character with another of his "creations", Cruella De Vil:

"I think that Cinderella would have to be the more...

Walt Disney Character beschrijving 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...

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

Now, as u all know, I love Disney Animation. I love to watch the movies, hear the songs and look at the characters. But one thing I really love is watching the animatie 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 of a sequence in slow motion, as then I get meer details the volgende time I see the movies.
Now, u all know how much I LOVE The Little Mermaid. My favoriete movie of all-time. Ever since I discovered to to make gifs, I have made many gifs from various Disney Classics, but...

Walt Disney Character beschrijving of Vanessa from "The Little Mermaid" (1989)

When Ursula adopts human guise in order to ensnare Eric romantically (with the aid of Ariel's hostage voice), she takes for herself the name Vanessa. Vanessa so strongly resembles Ariel that it is easier to note the differences than the similarities. Some are superficial - the hair colour, for example - and others much meer fundamental. A curious feature of Vanessa is that, even though Ariel is in theory still a little...

Walt Disney Character beschrijving 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 door 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...

 Prince Eric
Prince Eric
The Encyclopedia of Walt Disney's Animated Characters: From Mickey muis to Hercules by
John Grant

It is a recurring theme of this book that Disney's glamorous princes tend on the whole to be cyphers, and Eric (voiced door 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...

 Roger Ebert's Review of Walt Disney's "Hercules" (1997)
Roger Ebert's Review of Walt Disney's "Hercules" (1997)
Roger Ebert: ***½ (3 and a half Stars)

The wonder is that it took Disney so long to get to the gods of Greek mythology. ``Hercules'' jumps into the ancient legends feet-first, cheerfully tossing out what won't fit and combining what's left into a new look and a lighthearted style.

Starting with a Day-Glo Olympian city in the clouds, and using characters based on the drawing style of the British illustrator Gerald Scarfe, this new animated feature has something old (mythology), something new (a Pegasus equipped with helicopter blades), something borrowed (a gospel singing group) and something...

PrueFever aka Jørgen with his idol, Prue Halliwell aka Shannen Doherty.
Life has never been easy for PrueFever aka Jørgen Jørgensen (J.J. for short). When his mom started drinking alcohol a few weeks after his birth, his father did the same thing a couple of years later, which led to Social Service removing him and his sisters from home pagina and placed them in different Foster Homes in Denmark. Then in 1997 J.J. was diagnosed with Aspergers Syndrome, although on the mild end of the ASD spectrum. Then in 2007 his mother died and in 2008 his father was killed. And yet, when Fanpop met up with him in Planet Hollywood in London, it was a fresh, smiling young man we met....

Walt Disney Character beschrijving 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 Character beschrijving 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 globaal, algemene 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 beschrijving 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 of 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 door way of character except her basic allure, which weaves a meer 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 meer sense.
 Mowgli did not want to become part of humanity... Until, that is, he saw the Girl.

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

This artikel 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 top, boven favoriete Disney Classics. I think it has really gorgeous animation, both character animatie and also the backgrounds/locations. The way the animators brought all these animals 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 u get meer of out the animation. u can see where the animators have animated...

This is actually an artikel that I geplaatst off in the Childhood Animated Movie Heroines club, but I'm going to post it here as well.


5. Cinderella

In my opinion, she is the seconde prettiest Disney Princess! She's a real classic beauty and I love that about her. She has gorgeous blonde hair, which I love, I find all hair colors gorgeous but black and blonde the most so. She also has absolutely beautiful eyes, lips, and though her nose is poorly drawn, I don't find her ugly in the slightest from that. I'm probably the only one who thinks this, but I think she would actually look prettier...

While the animatie department was busily trying to complete Oliver & Company door the imminent deadline, Ron Clements and John Musker, the two directors of The Great muis 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 afbeeldingen 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 enquêtes 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 volgende 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 volgende result does not tell us much, so on the volgende result we found three summaries...

Roger Ebert: **** (4 Stars)

Was there ever a scarier, meer exciting animated feature than "Pinocchio"? I doubt it - at least not if u were between the ages of 5 and 10 when u saw it, and could identify with its blockheaded little hero. Pinocchio, who is not the brightest char acter in the history of cartoons, wants only to be a good little boy, but he's trapped door scoundrels who want to use him as a sideshow attraction, and then he's kidnapped and sent to an island where he will be turned into a donkey and put to work in the salt mines all dag long.

I remember seeing "Pinocchio" for the first...

Character beschrijving of Maid Marian from "Robin Hood" (1973)

Maid Marian, niece to King Richard, plays a very small role in the movie, and after she and Robin have plighted their troth she seems to be largely forgotten about. Her function is essentially to provide a motive for Robin to attend the archery tournament and thereby set things up for one of the movie's major sequences. What is intriguing, however, is that the animators have succeded in making a feeks, "vixen" have the screen presence of an attractive woman. In part this must be due to her voice, supplied door Monica Evans, but this cannot be a total explanation. One must simply applaud the skill of the Disney animators.

Bambi is not a tightly plotted movie in the way that Dumbo, for example, is: it depends much meer for its effect on the superb animatie 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) of Snow White. The only really strong characterizations are those of Friend Owl and Thumper. But this lack of depth in the characterization is not...
