Coming in 2018 is Disney’s next fairy tale mythology animated feature film, set amongst the South Pacific islands, rendered in a ‘painterly-style CGI’ (think the Paperman short): and y’all are going to LOVE IT:
The main character will be Moana Waialiki, a sea voyaging enthusiast, and the only daughter of a chief in a long line of navigators. When her family needs her help, she sets off on an epic journey. The film will also include demi-gods and spirits taken from real mythology.
This is also currently being directed by Ron Clements and John Musker, the duo who directed The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, Hercules and The Princess an the Frog! So there’s that
Interesting! What do you think, followers?
Oooh! Which animal is the hero gonna turn into this time?
How terribly are they gonna fuck up a real religion, you know, like they did Hercules? Is it gonna be in South Pacific Land, like Aladdin was set in Arabia? Are there gonna be racist fish caricatures here too?
I’m so done with Disney, man. There’s not even points for trying anymore.
Can another animation company please step up to the plate?
So while I waited for my mom to come pick me up, I ran into the Target on Flatbush Ave. These are pics of their Disney aisle. Note the complete lack of Mulan, Pocahontas, or even Jasmine. Tiana got one doll, in an ensemble pack, in the corner. Hell, even the package has her squeezed off to the side, practically on the side of the box.
What is this fuckery?
Why is Merida a princess but Vanellope isn’t? Those are both Pixar films, but one girl got to be a princess. Why?
For that matter, why isn’t Kida a princess?
Like, what decides who makes the list? Cause it sure as hell isn’t “being a princess in a Disney animated film”.
