so my animation professor has worked on all of the major disney movies like lion king, little mermaid, aladdin, beauty and the beast etc.
and he was talking about the issues a lot of disney stories have and how the writers kinda just shrugged about them and hoped people wouldnt notice and PEOPLE DID
ACTUAL LITTLE KIDS
like he said one time when they were doing a panel a little girl asked why ariel couldn’t just WRITE ERIC A LETTER TELLING HIM IT WAS HER WHO SAVED HIM B/C SHE SIGNED URSULA’S CONTRACT WHICH MEANS SHE COULD WRITE and all of the animators n writers just skipped over her question
and another time they were questioned about princess and the frog and how charlotte coulda just helped tiana with her restaurant b/c she’s rich and they’re friends so yanno
but the writers just sorta laughed nervously
these stories make me laugh b/c so many people try and say dont pay attention to the issues some disney movies have b/c they’re for little kids and little kids can’t think critically > v >
ahh yes good times
the writers kinda just shrugged about them and hoped people wouldnt notice
The Hollywood standard for storytelling: hope people aren’t paying attention to the story, distract them with loud noises and pretty things.
my handwriting is uglier than me
listen here you little shit
heres to all the kids who have never found their name on anything in a souvenir store
there’s nothing that says “australia’s weather is messed up” quite like the fact that our fire danger system doesnt just stop at “extreme”
and that the second lowest setting is ‘high’
As a VFX artist, I go nuts whenever I see this. They used real footage from a raccoon that they rotoscoped to use over the 3D model. So there is literally real footage of a raccoon in these effects! It’s GENIUS!!!
HOLY SHIT. THAT’S THE MOST REALISTIC ANIMATION I’VE EVER SEEN.
