Cinderella is one of my favorite stories ever, but really I don't think the Disney one is very good, it sort of drags out unnecessary things and I don't like the talking animals much either. The only thing I really like about it all all is the source material and the animation.
 Sinderella is one of my paborito stories ever, but really I don't think the Disney one is very good,
Silverrose1991 commented…
I like it, but they should have focused madami on Sinderella and her prince and shortened the mice-and-cat chase scenes. The movie is really a product of its time: since the animators were still learning how to animate realistic humans, they filled the movie with cartoony animal physical comedy. sa loob ng isang taon na ang nakalipas

Ugh those ultra dragged out mice scenes and that prince with almost no screen time, they are two of the reasons why Sinderella is my least paborito DP film. Hopefully the live action one will be madami interesting. sa loob ng isang taon na ang nakalipas

While I like Beauty and the Beast I prefer the scenes where Beast is soft and depressed and romantic, I can't stand the movie when he's angry and being a jerk to Belle.

Also, I want Big Hero 6 to be a mayor hit!!! The box office numbers are scaring me!!
wanderingchild7 commented…
Agree! Beauty and the Beast is my favourite movie. I don't like the Beast too when he is soo agressive but eventually isn't it the main thing in the story that he has to learn how to be nice? :) Awww I like depressed soft and romantic guys sooooo much! (I just wish they weren't so depressed ;) ) I didn't see Big Hero 6 yet but it sounds really interesting. sa loob ng isang taon na ang nakalipas

The revival period is my favorite era in Disney history for several reasons. I think that over the years the stories Disney has made have become more serious and complex and the modern period has probably the most complex stories and characters and some of the most serious subject matter. This period has put a lot of focus on characters who experience loss, unhappiness, imperfection, dissatisfaction, and insecurity. This period seems to be getting a lot of attention and praise because it is allowing animated films to become more complex and like live action films and of course Disney is finally entering the modern age. I don't agree with the critique that the revival films are unable to become classics because they are a product of their time because every film, everything in culture really, is a product of their time. The society that once appreciated more sweet and docile girl's like Snow and Aurora has changed and now appreciates stronger, more independent women. Yes, the classic films are classics but that's also because they were made long ago, they were once considered modern as well I'm sure. I love many classics but the era had generally simpler stories that didn't focus as much on the darker elements in life except for Bambi, Pinocchio, and Cinderella. They were less realistic, well rounded characters and less emotional stories in my opinion, it was all fairly ideal compared to real life and the films from the dark age forward. I love that this modern period is also more inventive and innovative than the previous periods, they are moving forward while still looking at the past and the films still have Disney magic but along with a more modern, realistic flair. No one talks and acts like Snow (and I love her) but people do act like the characters of the later periods like the renaissance and revival and I love that, it makes the characters more relatable. These modern films will be considered timeless because they focus on universal, timeless themes just like the other periods. Their is a reason why this generation prefers the revival to the classic era, because the classics are a bit too old fashioned at times and they don't reflect our society today. I'm sure I have more to say but I'll leave it at that. I'm not saying that I don't like the classic era but I find it a bit overrated compared the other, more complex and innovative periods.
Silverrose1991 commented…
I agree with some of the things with you said, but not with all. For example, the Classic era will always be the most innovative period, because it was the first: without it, all of the animation we see today probably wouldn't exist. Also, I think the Classic era holds some of the most emotional stories and characters. And I think Snow White is madami realistic than usually ibingiay credit for. And while I'm happy that modern society appreciates stronger and indepent women, they shouldn't scoff at ladies who don't fit these requirements (also, sweet and docile DO NOT equal fragile and weak - you seem to imply otherwise in your text, and this annoyed me the most). But overall, I agree that this era has been interesting and unique (though TPATF and nagyelo are very badly executed, imo. I don't remember that much of WIR, I pag-ibig Gusot and I haven't seen Big Hero 6 yet). Sorry if my comment isn't cohesive, I'm just not in the mood to go through all you wrote and adress point sa pamamagitan ng point. sa loob ng isang taon na ang nakalipas

When i sinabi innovative I meant with the stories and characters, I should have clarified that. I agree that technologically the classic era was the most innovative. I didn't try to imply that sweet and docile equal fragile and weak but society tends to think of them as that. What I meant is that madami submissive girls aren't considered as interesting as madami independent girls these days. The classic era had some great, emotional stories but I think that the other eras have madami emotional and complex stories and characters. sa loob ng isang taon na ang nakalipas

^ Well, being self-oriented isn't really selfish. If it was then Snow White would immediately be selfish just for wishing to find a prince. It's when there is a callous disregard for another person's wants and needs that you become selfish. Which I would agree Ariel becomes. sa loob ng isang taon na ang nakalipas

Despite my love for Snow White and her original story, I absolutely hate the Disney version of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. It's not that I find it too child friendly, I just find it boring and I think it's just a little overrated. In fact I think the only reason people like it is because you see it as a child and therefor have nostalgia for it. Critics even credit the film, solely, for being the first Disney film. While I can see why people find it charming, I can't see why it's such this great and wonderful classic. This might not be an unpopular opinion in general, but for most social medias I've been on I think it is just a little bit unpopular.

It annoys me how people demand that Disney make new "types" of Disney Princesses. I hear people say things like, "DISNEY BETTER MAKE A _____ DISNEY PRINCESS OR ELSE !!1!11!!1!11!1!!1" They're all Disney Princesses, they're all characters. How about we actually focus on the character instead of things like their race? It's like judging them by their appearance, demanding that. Things like representation and diversity are good things, but there is no reason Disney needs to cater to every want everyone has. Just let them make movies, let them make characters, the way they want to. There's no use complaining about how Disney didn't make a ___ princess for you, do you seriously expect them to make a character the way you ask? Sorry if this seems directed towards anyone, but I had to say this.

I really think Ariel is popular here. I personally don't understand why people say she isn't. She gets hate, yes, but it typically tends to only be from a few vocal users on the club. The rest of the users tend to generally like her. I think some people need to start separating hate from pointing out flaws. Most people on the club like her, but are not afraid to point out that she has flaws and what those flaws are. Like I said, there is a difference between pointing out the flaws of a character and hating on a character. And even if she got more hate, I would still consider her popular. Let's take a look at the definition of popular.

pop·u·lar
adjective
1.
liked, admired, or enjoyed by many people or by a particular person or group.

So, if she gets a lot of love, she's popular, see? And she gets a lot of love. There are many, many, users who have her as first in this club. (And many who place her very high as well.) I would list them, but I don't want them thinking I'm trying to personally attack them by doing it. I really do find her one of the most loved Disney Princesses on here, and I don't find her one of the most hated at all.

I don't know how popular this is, but I think Sleeping Beauty (more so the movie) is more feminist than it's credited for. I'm copying and pasting (and slightly editing) my comment on one of the links to explain.

" The story is driven mostly by female characters. The female villain is portrayed powerfully, feared by all and seen as a real threat. The fairies play a large part in the movie as well. They are mostly portrayed positively, saving Prince Phillip from the dungeon and providing him with weapons, playing a part in Maleficent's defeat. Aurora herself isn't exactly a feminist icon, but the overall movie could be given more credit. "

Animation doesn't matter to me. At all. A Disney movie could have the most horrendous animation in the world and it could still be my favorite movie ever. I don't know why, but I don't care about how "good" or "bad" animation is. It doesn't affect my enjoyment of the movie.
MalloMar commented…
I disagree, but that's really interesting and un-snobby (for a lack of a better word). As someone who draws a lot, I notice details in animation. I guess when I watch pelikula I really WATCH them. I don't mind a movie with average or even bad animation if it has redeeming qualities. sa loob ng isang taon na ang nakalipas

I think nostalgia is a very important reason for loving a movie. I see a lot of people who say "Oh people only like this movie because they watched it when they were a kid," and I'm like... so? If something reminds you of your childhood I think that's a very good reason to like it. An example for me would be Aladdin - a movie about which I am not nostalgic at all because I didn't see it until I was a teenager. I don't like Aladdin all that much, and I don't think I ever will, precisely because it doesn't hold any of that childhood charm that I associate with other DP movies such as The Little Mermaid. It makes me sad because it is a good movie and I want to like it more, but I just never will because it isn't nostalgic for me.

This will sound weird, but I think it'd be cool if Disney made another (or a truly, depends on where you stand) shy, introverted princess. Society tends to favor extroverted people and many have the idea than an extroverted woman is more "worthwhile" of attention than a girl who has difficulties opening up or forming relationships. It could be interesting for Disney to showcase a girl who happens to be a little on the quiet, lonely side (by default, not just by "magical loopholes" like Elsa). And it would be nice if the narrative of her story wasn't about how her shyness is an "obstacle" she has to overcome and change because oh no, she's such a weirdo for not talking much or being on her own. She could end the movie still being a little on the reserved side and still have friends and loved ones around. (There are way too many movies where the shy girl turns into the life of the party because the plot demands it and i always found those stories sooo cliched and in a way pressuring girls to be one way that is favored over another...). Think of something like Violet Parr or Fluttershy.

Absolutely! I've always sort of wished for a madami introverted Princess/heroine. I think they could manage to make her interesting and relatable. I know, a lot of people are tired of the whole "I want Disney to make a ___ princess!" thing, but I can't help but agree with you. Wonderful idea. I think that's a great way to execute that kind of character. :) As an introvert, I might be biased on the subject. sa loob ng isang taon na ang nakalipas

Warning: Multiple confessions included, but assembled in a rambling manner 😜

Disney fanatics sound so effing ignorant when they whine "Disney would've done it better!" because a.) that's disrespectful to the other film company/cast and crew, b.) they usually can't provide valid reasons as to *why* c.) and Disney sometimes cares too much about upholding its "family-friendly ideals" to provide the edge/grit needed. I.E. It will most likely never create a film like "The Prince of Egypt" because covering religion would be too controversial.

More fans should be informed of animation history before blindly defending Disney because, while the majority of its filmography is absolutely phenomenal, the suits (businessmen) have basically been running the corporation since Walt's death AND driving its most talented animators out. There's nothing wrong with cherishing the films, but don't delude yourselves. At the end of the day, the animators, voice actors, screenwriters, directors, singers, lyricists, composers, etc. should be given the true recognition rather than the name brand itself. In other words, give credit where it's due instead of pledging blind allegiance and treating Disney as untouchable because of its legacy.

Speaking of legacy, it is important to know that is Disney's greatest strength. Remember its "Dark Age Era," or even how some of its most beloved classics were box office failures? "Sleeping Beauty," an undeniable visual masterpece failed so miserably at the box office that Disney was forced to stick to relatively safe stories AND cheap animation techniques such as Xeroxing until its resurgence circa TLM/BatB. If inflation is taken into account, SWatSD is still technically the most successful animated film of all time, but the expensive/creatively ground-breaking films that followed ("Pinocchio" and "Fantasia") bombed, so it was imperative that the films that followed those be successful, and they were.

Fast-forward to the time between Walt's death and TLM, the company would have folded if not for the parks which were basically shrines to its glory days! Fast-forward to everything after "Tarzan," and before "The Princess and the Frog," Disney would've crumbled if not for the parks, merchandising, Disney Channel aka "the kid star machine" and accumulation of various successful properties/franchises (Pixar, ESPN, ABC, Marvel, etc.)

My point in the aforementioned is that no other corporation would be able to recover unscathed multiple times, especially after such dramatic losses, but Disney *always* will. Because, unlike all of the others, Disney has existed long enough that its messages have been ingrained in us since before our birth; at the very least, it dates back to our great-grandparents' upbringings. And while I am grateful for that, it justifiably frustrates me that people not only take a literal embodiment of a grand dream come true for granted, but that they can't understand this is precisely why Disney has no excuse but to offer the best in all regards: it has the advantage.

Bona fide stars and/or the greatest talents of our time have lent their voices/contributions to a Disney film not for the money -- as the scale is ridiculously low and their likeness isn't paid for -- but because they want to be immortalized. Therefore, if you're truly a Disney fan, you should know better than to attack other companies for not upholding the same standards, or even to expect such in the first place, because they are the real-life underdogs. I suppose that would make those loud-mouths the villains. Funny how that works, isn't it?

Which brings us to Don Bluth. He was probably just as much a part of your childhood as Disney, and it absolutely kills me when people claim he sold-out in the '90s by creating Disney-esque features 😤 He is an extremely talented animator and director who -- could use A LOT of help in the writing department, but still manages to get heartfelt messages across one way or another -- struggled to keep his own company afloat after the Renaissance began+Spielberg and Lucas cut ties with him.

Are people really that foolish as to believe he had an actual say in the matter? Obviously, he was told "make it look similar enough to Disney, or we'll find someone else that will" 😞 Do you think he wanted to suffer that degradation?! NO. But sometimes talent and acclaim aren't enough, and when you're the leader, you must swallow your pride and make compromises for the sake of your employees. Why can't we appreciate his selflessness instead of sneering at the likes of "Rock-A-Doodle," "The Pebble and the Penguin," "Thumbelina" and "A Troll in Central Park" .

It's like people conveniently choose to forget there was a time before Pixar, Dreamworks and the like existed; as if Disney never had a monopoly in the field. Speaking of DreamWorks, do they know why it was formed? Because Jeffrey Katzenberg was fed up with Michael Eisner taking the credit for everything he earned for Disney and giving him hell. Eisner was the cut-throat Disney CEO until he was forced out by Roy Disney. I'll give him props for pushing the darkness of THoND, but it ends there. Interestingly enough, Spielberg teamed up with Katzenberg on Dreamworks. Ouch. That sealed his choice to never finance a Bluth film again.

Since we're talking about Bluth's misfortune and Eisner's shady tactics, it's important to know that Eisner re-released multiple films during the weekend debut of Bluth's "Anastasia". A move that undoubtedly was responsible for the only-moderate commercial success of Fox Animation Studios' first feature-length film. And this was before the likes of DreamWorks. But remember, Katzenberg was a businessman first and foremost. Because he'd surrounded himself with priceless contacts over the years, his success was all but ensured.

Bluth had no such luck, and after the massive financial disaster of "Titan A.E.," he has been all but black-listed. Sad, too, because it wasn't really his fault: $30 million worth of concept art had already been squandered before Bluth was brought on board, he was told that he could take the project or cost all of his team members their employment, and it was hardly marketed because the new president of the company -- who took office during its production -- didn't want to waste money on marketing since he intended to gut the animation department (for whatever reason).

We're talking about a man whose classics (such as "The Secret of NIMH," An American Tail," "The Land Before Time" and "All Dogs Go To Heaven") were tainted by their God-awful sequels, of which he never consented to, save "Bartok's Magnificent Adventure," because he had to sell the rights of all the characters he ever created before he could even begin production on any of his films. A man who could've become the face of Disney, as he was offered the position of animating director in the late '70s, but left after only fulfilling it for a short time because he knew Walt's standards weren't being upheld.

He knew it was unacceptable to skimp on adding shadows, reflections, eye colors and anything else that added atmosphere which made these magical worlds seem real to us. He sacrificed hours of his own time after work to train newbies, learn techniques that the Nine Old Men had neglected to teach and/or forgotten altogether, create budget-cutting methods for better animation, film live-action references and train people to act out those sequences and argued the necessity for of all this until he came to the heart-breaking conclusion that everything had come down to a matter of nickels and dimes, and that it might be too late before his voice would be heard. And he proved to the world that animation could be transcendent once more, surpassing Disney on a critical and commercial level for nearly a decade.

So, you can idolize a man like John Lasseter, who gutted the 2D department after a film didn't perform as well as he'd hoped, fired the brilliant Brenda Chapman, and "returned Disney to its former glory" by reinforcing the establishment of a suit-driven studio once more, but I'll take a "failure" like Don Bluth any day. At least the latter "sold-out" for the betterment of others, not to mention walked out on inevitable prestige in favor of "moving forward".

I think the scene of Ariel emerging from the water in her silver dress could've been animated *much* better.

I don't like to criticize the princesses' body shapes because I don't believe in shaming of ANY kind, but she looks emaciated, masculine and awkward, as hardly any detail is added to her face. I think the raising of her arms is sweet, but it looks like they just chose to use a rough pencil test (albeit colored in). All I'm sayin' is that it would've been wise to rotoscope her in that scene, as they clearly did in the one thereafter.

I think Ron Musker and John Clements, while clearly incredible directors and screenwriters, are often hit-or-miss when it comes to choosing the color palette and wacky aspects of their films. In TLM, TP, and "Hercules," I found some objects in a good amount of scenes to be obnoxiously bright. I.E. A few underwater scenes, Zeus' Kingdom and the like💀 Whereas, I long for Gary Trousdale and Kirk Wise's brilliant mixture of rich, neutral and vibrant colors and overall simplicity... it's enough to make me wish they'd been brought back instead, or at least as well, to be honest 😿 But that will probably never happen since G.T. works at DreamWorks now 😩

i think Frozen teaches a bad moral about love relationships. The whole Fixer upper song for example and Kristoff's entire behaviour (ok he has a few nice moments but just a few) is like telling the kids: " It's ok to date with a jerk, he is maybe rude and uneducated and has digusting habits but there is really no need to search for your prince because jerks are way better! "
Sk8er__grl commented…
I couldn't disagree madami to be honest. No girl in life is going to find her perfect prince Charming that will completely support her through everything and pag-ibig everything about her. I don't in the slightest see how Kristoff is a jerk because he doesn't agree with Anna's decisions on things. Kristoff is shown comforting of Anna, loving of her quirks, and in the end would do anything for her, like giving Anna away and supporting her decision to be with Hans. Also no where in fixer upper do they say that Kristoff is a jerk, the trolls just point out his flaws like families do. I think the way I like at it is, if you're in pag-ibig the little problems about a guy or quirks about a girl shouldn't matter. sa loob ng isang taon na ang nakalipas

I find the Fixer Upper scene extremely disturbing and I think Frozen's moral about pag-ibig relationships is awful, but not because Kristoff is a jerk. I don't really care about him, but he's actually quite the opposite of jerk, he's sweet, caring, selfless and he puts Anna's happiness above everything. He even asks her permission to halik her! Do you know any other prince who does that? I can't argue the fact that he's pretty disgusting (WHY did they have to let us know all about his personal hygiene? It's so disturbing and I DON'T consider it very funny!), but in general Kristoff is a lovely, kind boyfriend, antisocial and awkward, but still adorkable. sa loob ng isang taon na ang nakalipas

I don't think Elsa is sexy just for wearing a tight dress, loads of makeup and swaying your hips. In fact I don't think Esmeralda or Jasmine are sexy JUST for basically those same reasons either (except of course a crop top in lieu of a dress). I think in addition to beauty sexiness is attitude, which is why I think if anything Anna is more, for her wholesome/ingenue attitude with her natural beauty. And while Elsa is very attractive, something about her I just can't find sexy like everyone else does, dress or not. Maybe the fact that she's a young girl with a middle aged woman's voice? :S I can't put my finger on it.

Disney used to be very "gutsy" back in the day - nudity in Fantasia, experiencing drunken Dumbo, the villains getting away with everything in Pinocchio (Those poor donkey-boys!), The Horned King in The Black Cauldron (I know, not as old as the other movies mentioned, but it's certainly scary), etc. I guess the newer movies have their moments, too, but I think that some of the older Disney movies would get banned for some of their content if they were released nowadays. I wouldn't mind seeing something a bit risky again, but I do understand why these don't occur so casually anymore.

I do think Elsa has less characterization than her sister ( Anna), and very much less than most of all the other Disney lineup girls. People attribute "great characteristics" to Elsa that simply aren't there on screen. I keep hearing how Elsa is so selfless, how she is so mature, how she is elegant ( okay, she's as elegant as Belle is, so that point, at least, is a true statement), how she knows what she wants, etc. I also keep hearing how she is the best Disney Princess.... It's funny to me, because I wonder how the movie Frozen really shows me that Elsa is selfless, how Frozen really shows me that Elsa is mature, and how Frozen characterizes Elsa as showing that she knows what she wants. In fact, after watching Frozen twice, I do not see how Elsa is completely selfless, how Elsa is more mature than say, Anna or Merida, nor how Elsa knows what she wants in life. Elsa doesn't seem to know anything, and only seems to "pretend" to know a lot of stuff.

As for people claiming Elsa's the most affectionate of the princesses because of the way she "cares for her friends"--- that's totally missing. We get Elsa giving the empty-handed complement of " you look nice" to her sister at the coronation party. This is the first time they've seen each other's face in years, I guess. Did they never eat dinner together? Could you not find something else to say, besides "your dress looks nice?" I mean, what are your hobbies, interests, hello? Re-acquaint yourselves. We also get a vapid discussion about chocolate... which goes nowhere. We then get Elsa shooting ice when she argues with her sister, after she feels threatened by Anna's outburst and glove-grabbing. Besides those "caring moments" I just mentioned, we get the part where Elsa tries to shoo Anna out of her ice castle because she thinks her sister is in danger. But that nice moment where Elsa feels "almost caring" toward her sister simply backfires. In the very next scene, Elsa loses her temper and shoots her sister with ice--- and that move really comes across as intentional in the movie. Then Elsa sends the snow monster to chase her sister away, which is, again, intentional. I really have a hard time seeing " the loving care" in imparting physical injury to a person, and then throwing them out on their butt. I don't see how that is "fully caring about others, and putting others needs ahead of oneself."

We get ONE instance of Elsa displaying love and affection: she finally hugs her sister at the end of Frozen, because her sister sacrificed herself and stood in front of Hans to block a blow intended for her. After that, though, I don't think "love" cleared everything up in the sisters' "rough/rocky relationship." We don't see Elsa talking to Anna about how she treated her, do we? We don't ever see Elsa explain to Anna, why their parents made her keep her distance. Nope. We only see Elsa either phenomenally scared, panicked, and/or resigned to being a monster, or happy-go-lucky. I really found Elsa to be exceptionally out of character in her happy-go-lucky routine, after she's given the answer "that it's love" by Anna. Elsa is suddenly all rainbows and sunshine, with no lingering doubts at all, and offers no apology to her sister for what she did. Make no mistake, Anna is both ditzy and rude, but that does not excuse Elsa from offering her an apology for the awful way she acted towards Anna.

When I digested this movie, and watched each scene carefully, I failed to see the wonderful qualities that people kept attributing to Elsa. Elsa is certainly not brave. Elsa turns out not be very mature at all. Elsa actually has a lot in common with Anna's immaturity: for example. Anna rashly decides to marry a man sight unseen; Elsa rashly decides to heck/hell with good behavior, I'm going to release my feelings and "let it all go." BOTH girls are rash and make very poor decisions! Additionally, Elsa is simply not as selfless as people keep saying. Choosing your superpowers over your family is selfless?

Elsa is pretty and elegant, just like all the others in the DP line, but beauty does not help you conquer your fears. Belle was elegant, also, but do we only judge Belle on her "elegance" alone? I seem to remember Belle being judged primarily by how she was able to model the correct example of "kindness" to the beast. Beauty really is empty. Character matters.

My beef with Elsa, Anna, Tiana, Merida, and Rapunzel ( mostly the modern DPs), is that the full characterization that was required-- that would have made the titular protagonist/ deuteragonist a fully-fleshed out identity--- either by evil motivation, or by good motivation-- is noticeably missing. What most audiences expect from a story ( besides tiny girls and moms playing dress-up) is not the characters' pretty outfits, eye-makeup, facial structure, and song--- but the reason for the characters' existence. A completely defined reason for their behavior. It's hard to relate to bits and pieces. Frozen is all bits and pieces. The characters in Frozen, especially Elsa, are all in bits and pieces. The motivations and the stories in the new Disney Princess era are rushed, so thrown together at the last moment-- that enormous holes exist between connecting one idea to the next. So when people say that such and such a character has all of these wonderful attributes--- and the movie basically glosses over them all, never truly identifying what they are--- I find it really hard to agree. I have a truly hard time saying that the Modern DPs are well-rounded characters. I can not say I like Elsa, Anna, Tiana, Merida, and Rapunzel on the same level that I liked the Classic girls or the Renaissance girls. Particularly in Elsa's case, what I see is a jumble of thoughts, and I do not know anything concrete about her, whereas in the past, with the Classics and the Renaissance, I definitely did know why this DP acted the way she did, and why this story even existed. Sure, these new DP characters are liked, but in my opinion, less time was spent creating them, less story is there to justify their creation, and much more merchandizing has been put in to fill in the gap. I may sound sour, here, but I'm trying to explain why these new Disney Princesses are like jigsaw pieces, and are less relatable to me. Instead of making me care about them, Disney has started to make me disinterested in them. And I'm really worried about Moana, because Frozen's success has basically given Disney the greenlight TO NOT tell a well-crafted, coherent story for the next Disney Princess. What I fear is that we will get another misleading trailer about the storyline, and another opportunity to just push some characters across a screen without providing any background for their behavior, nor any context for their actions. Disney will cash in, but I won't be entertained very much at all.

MissCinico commented…
Atributes or lack of attributes doesn't make any idea less of a character. You may not like Elsa and she very well may be a plot device, but your reasoning goes against the laws of literature. I do agree that there could be madami build on her character and in all of the modern characters, but it's not like the older ones don't fall into that category as well. All characters are ideas and therefor only have traits motives a attitude that fit into a specific story line. I guess you could say your opinion is then shifted over to Disney for lazy writting and composure, but it's an arch almost every character follows so really that is flaw with pelikula in general. And you trying to shift that to acknowledge only Elsa or Disney doesn't make much sense. Despite all of this, I do agree with you that Disney should try and make madami original characters that they actually work hard on. Your unpopular opinion is duly noted. sa loob ng isang taon na ang nakalipas

I hate the way Disney uses Elsa and Kristoff (who are equally if not more naive about love than Anna) to shame Anna about wanting love. they could've taught the lessons about being careful who you give your heart away to without being so spiteful about it and turning it into more of a "true love don't real, you're dumb for believing in it even though this is a fairy tale where that thing is actually logical. also, falling in love with the anti-Disney prince is OK". but I see no need to do it at all- Disney's been smacking this moral at us for years and years now. WE GET IT! it's so redundant now, especially how Enchanted already used this message. and as I've said before, none of the other couples actually married after a couple days. It's just embarrassing how Disney seems ashamed of the old movies but clearly don't even watch them.

Lol, I don't think living with trolls as romantic pag-ibig guides, actually counts. That song was horrid! nagyelo was full of the pot calling the kettle black.

I think Tangled is the best DP movie both from my own opinion and critically too. It's got beautiful animation, mentally strong protagonists, very emotional moments, a realistic and rather terrifying villain, and one of the best romantic relationships ever created on the big screen. The only places I see it lacking is in the songs and even then we have wonderful numbers like "I See the Light" and the Kingdom Dance. In my opinion it's a classic and one of the best written tales Disney has ever produced.

I also think that those who argue The Lion King or Beauty and the Beast are better are looking the movies through nostalgia glasses. Or they don't care much for characterization and put more stock on animation and music. Which is worthwhile, but a bit shallow in my opinion.

I never got why Gusot was disliked so much sa pamamagitan ng many fanpoppers. It combines modern and classic very well imo. sa loob ng isang taon na ang nakalipas

I'm probably the only one here who's bothered by this, and I'll probably get shamed for nitpicking.
I'm slightly bothered by Anna's pronunciation of the word 'sauna'. (She says 'SAW-na') Most people I know pronounce it the way she does in the movie, but it's incorrect. It's a Finnish word that is correctly pronounced 'SOU-na'. Yeah, it sounds unusual to most people, but I just think it's proper to respect the origins of words. Frozen has a Scandinavian setting, I might add. My apologies for criticizing small details.

I think it's madami of an accent thing really, and since Anna and Elsa talk with an American accent, it makes sense for them to use American inflections. It would have been nice to have every speak in a nordic accent though. sa loob ng isang taon na ang nakalipas

Afew months ago, I heard alot of talk about wanting to add a princess with a disability. Me being from the south, it's hard to see something like that. Don't get me wrong, the thought of it DOES sound wonderful because it would give little girls with a disability a positive message saying they're not alone fighting whatever it is they have.
Aang_Lite commented…
Yeah that's exactly how I feel. A nice thought, but unlikely to ever happen soon. Though I guess you could argue Tiana becoming a frog could be a metaphor for disability. And Elsa is almost a direct representation of some mental disabilities. sa loob ng isang taon na ang nakalipas

^I agree that Elsa can be an applicable metaphor for many things. And I think it's a positive message to people with disabilities and the like that the thing that you find a burden actually has its own beauty. sa loob ng isang taon na ang nakalipas

hmmm
I pretty much just did polls and wrote article about this topic. Seen here.

Now I'm wondering how everyone else defines damsel in distress and which princess is and which princess isn't. This is how I see it. I compare each princesses damsel moments with their heroic moments and which ever side takes majority, that's what the princess gets. This is the results I got.

Damsels
Snow White
Jasmine
Merida-Looking back, I'd probably say her too. I need to re-watch Brave.

Heroes
Mulan
Rapunzel
Tiana

Both
Pocahontas
Ariel
Anna
Elsa
Belle

Neither
Cinderella
Aurora

Hmm I would say Pocahontas, Elsa and Belle aren't both bayani and damsels in distress I think Poca and Belle are madami bayani if anyone is a Damsel in distress in Pocahontas it's John Smith and as for Elsa she's neither that's just me. sa loob ng isang taon na ang nakalipas
kristenfan10109 commented…
And as for Merida I think she's both along with Rapunzel they start out as damsels in distress but end up conquering Thier sa loob ng isang taon na ang nakalipas

However, the moment where she covers John Smith also doubles as her big act of heroism, stopping a war from happening and all. sa loob ng isang taon na ang nakalipas

One unpopular opinion per princess

Anna-I find her humor more entertaining, more natural and less forced than Rapunzel. She's funniest princess in the line-up.

Elsa-Doesn't offend me nearly as much as Kristoff with her comments about love. In fact, she doesn't offend me at all.

Merida-Just a female empowerment stereotype that caters to ignorant people like Anita Sarkeesian.

Rapunzel-I really don't like her brown hair.

Tiana-I don't think she's mean, the only person she's really mean to is Naveen, and she kind of has the right to be.

Mulan-Gets some undeserved praise that rightfully belongs to Ariel, Belle, Jasmine and Pocahontas to varying degrees.

Pocahontas-Not as nearly as dull, mature or serious as people make her out to be, AT ALL. She is wise but only when it comes to nature.

Jasmine-Not dumb at all for not realizing that Aladdin and Prince Ali are the same person, immediately. This is an old opinion on Fanpop. Not sure if it's still around today.

Belle-Same as Mulan. Only this time the praise rightfully belongs to just Ariel.

Ariel-The prettiest, sexiest and most beautiful princess. Not really an UNpopular opinion but still.

Aurora-I think Kingdom hearts' purple is the best version of her dress. But if I had to pick, I guess I prefer blue.

CInderella-A strong female character in her own right. A strong character PERIOD really!

Snow White-Same as Cinderella.

I actually agree with most of these although the Merida one was sort of offensive, I pag-ibig Merida so does that make me ignorant in your eyes? Still, I agree with a lot :) sa loob ng isang taon na ang nakalipas

^ Yes, I see. That is sort of the problem, these groups sometimes put those two up and the others down just because they are a little less princess-like, I pag-ibig them both but I can see how that is unfair or ignorant of those groups to do. sa loob ng isang taon na ang nakalipas

As much as it makes me angry, I think I know why Pocahontas isn't used much on DP merchandise. I think it's because they'll accidentally upset her ancestors/the people in her tribe. This may not be much of a confession, but still.

I was just a tad bit underwhelmed and bored with the live-action Cinderella yet I absolutely loved Big Hero 6. I also never really loved Wreck-it-Ralph because it always seemed overlong to me, I do think it is very original but it has never been a favorite of mine, I actually prefer Frozen more than Wreck-it-Ralph.
