I'm 23, figuring out my life one day at a time. I like pretty things and cupcakes. Also boobs. Boobs are nice. And so are dinosaurs. Dinosaurs with boobs....not so much.

Re: Moana. Do you really want to argue what is the appropriate religious canon adapted in a work of children fiction considering people of the same religion murder each other based on their slightly different interpretations of 10 000 year old oral traditions?

sirkowski

I want to argue that taking deities from “South Pacific” (seriously, what? Where in the South Pacific?) religions and mashing them together into a hodge podge of bullshit is appropriation and unacceptable.

I want to argue that Disney has not exactly been the most sensitive when it comes to other cultures and religions (see: Brother Bear, the “voodooism” is Princess and the Frog, the bastardized Greek mythology in Hercules, the spirits in Mulan), and I no longer trust them. 

But yeah thanks for your dismissal of religious identities and children’s fiction all in one ask.

You can fuck off now.

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.


Waaahaaaaaaaa

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 just…
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?
Wtf Disney?
Like, what decides who makes the list? Cause it sure as hell isn’t “being a princess in a Disney animated film”.

DISNEY HAVE STOLEN MY ARTWORK
I don’t know what to do. I am so upset. Can anyone help me?
My painting was created back in 2010, (see it HERE) and since then so many people have expressed their love for it, not just on tumblr, but in many places. At least 9 people had it tattooed on their bodies. It’s one of my favourite images I created at University and I was proud of it in many ways.
Disney have used it on a cosmetics bag HERE (look at the back)and they have produced a Tshirt HERE with a really similar design clearly modeled from my painting
I’m so mad because I have no chance at getting Disney to do anything about it. I had so much respect for the company and now I am just SO upset and disappointed.
Any help, advice or signal boosting would be amazing. And thank you so much to the kind person who messaged me about this.

This is really sad. 

Look at the bag. It is the EXACT drawing. This is terrible. For the company responsible for a lot of current copyright law to do this - wow.
Please signal boost. Literally the only thing someone can do against Disney’s stealing someone’s work. Without all the lawyers.

This is so sad. :(

Signal Boost…DISNEY! One of  your designers stole this and no one noticed. Please give Katie a fair (7%) royalty WITHOUT going through the unnecessary hassle of a law suit…THANK YOU! That would be the only way to prove to me that you don’t suck.

decided to take gothiebaby up on her challenge and make a powerpoint to help people differentiate between studios with 2D films (cuz it drives me mad when people say anastasia is disney, etc)

of course i have left anime out of the spectrum because i would be doing this damn thing forever, and a lot of great little indie 2D animations have also been omitted. this is purely mainstream, american animation.

sorry if i’ve made any spectacular omissions. please message me if i have and i’ll fix it. i know there are a few disney films missing but i couldn’t bear adding melody time, make mine music…etc. and robin hood is pretty much the aristocats anyway so yeah.

here is the OP i got the idea from

I just want to clarify that Touchstone is owned by Disney so yes, it’s a Disney film but it isn’t made by Walt Disney Animation Studios, therefore it isn’t part of the official Disney animated lineup. In case any of you were thinking “So wait, why does Disney sells the Who Framed Roger Rabbit merchandise?”, that’s why.

Pls and THANK

fucking GOOD
