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

Walt Disney Character beschrijving 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 singing 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...

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...

 Walt Disney's 32nd Animated Feature, The Lion King (1994)
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...

Walt Disney Character beschrijving of Baloo from "The Jungle Book" (1967)

It had been originally planned that Baloo should have no meer than a cameo role, but the animators (Ollie Johnston was largely responsible for him) found Phill Harris's vocalization fascinating to work with and so in due course Baloo became one of the movie's major stars. Indeed, in terms of popularity and screen presence, he is the main ster of The Jungle Book, eclipsing even Bagheera, whose role is much meer fundamental to...

Walt Disney Character beschrijving of Iago from "Aladdin" (1992)

Jafar's sidekick is an irascible parrot, who - unusually for the birds - has teeth, and a lot of them at that. Hilariously voiced door Gilbert Gottfried at a general level of about one hundred decibles, Iago is as malicious as his master (although his character changed for The Return of Jafar). As is customary in the animated features, he is constantly being subjected to indignities door the one he serves - at one memorable stage he is deliberately trapped door Jafar in a sliding door - yet in this instance the slave is wiser than the master, for it is Iago who has the idea that Jafar's tactic to attain the sultanate should be through marrying Jasmine.

 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...

The Little Mermaid Early Original Script


It is a bright, sunny morning. Scuttle is excitedly flying toward the palace.


INT. ARIEL'S BEDROOM


Ariel is asleep in her bed with a happy smile on her face. She is dreaming of romance with Eric. Sebastian is also asleep, on the stand beside the bed, SNORING loudly. Scuttle swoops through the window and enters the bedroom.


SCUTTLE
(shouting)
Ariel! WAKE UP!!!


Sebastian wakes up with a jolt in reaction to Scuttle's screaming. Scuttle flies over to Ariel and frantically pulls at her clothes and her hair. She wakes up groggily.


SCUTTLE (cont.)

Walt Disney Character beschrijving of Prince Aladdin from "Aladdin" (1992)

As is very often the case in the Disney animated features, the story of Aladdin 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 Aladdin tries to cheat - he makes the Genie turn him into a prince so that he can woo Jasmine, and it is...

Note: I geplaatst this artikel on the Disney Princess page and the Disney page and later decided that I would post it and later artikels in the series here as well.
Hey, guys! Happy beginning of Autumn! 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 meer 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 u who are...

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 artikel 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 kom bij some meer 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 beschrijving of The Blue Fairy from "Pinocchio" (1940)

The Force of good might seem to be underrepresented in the movie when compared with the force of evil, incarnate in John Worthington Foulfellow, The Coachman, Stromboli, Lampwick... On the side of good are only Gepetto (a fairly passive ally), Jiminy Cricket, the Blue Fairy and eventually towards the end, the late-discovered integrity of Pinocchio himself. Yet good, of course, eventually triumphs (although, as noted, it does not destroy...

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...

Third in my Slow Motion animatie Gifs artikel Series, I give u Beauty and the Beast from 1991.
Now, Beauty wasn't one of my favoriete Disney films when I grew up, but over time, I've come to be rather fond of it. The muziek is great, I have the whole score (songs included) on my computer. The animatie 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 meer 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 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...

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.

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

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, jasmijn 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...

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....

Character beschrijving 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 meer 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...
