Walt Disney Character Beschreibung of The Prince from "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" (1937)

If Snow White is, as it were, a "strong cypher", the Prince is a weak one. For an important central character he appears on the screen for an astonishingly short period of time - once early on when Singen "One Song" with Snow White and the other time right at the end when his KISS wakes her from her otherwise endless sleep. Strangely enough, although he has only a few lines, his voice part proved the most difficult in the film to cast aside from that of Snow White, and indeed it was the last one to be finalized, the part eventually going to the established actor Harry Stockwell. The problem was that of finding a voice that captured the Prince's screen image as a robust, handsome young man (he had originally been envisaged as a Douglas Fairbanks type). In the event Stockwell achieved this to perfection.

Walt Disney's "The Lion King"
With the stunning success of "The Lion King" this weekend, Disney might re-release other classics in 3D, its distribution chief told TheWrap Sunday.

"It's probably one of the first things we're going to be having a conversation about Weiter week," studio distribution chief Dave Hollis said. "When Du look at our library, there are some very special gems as it were, and for those that transcend time -- and a lot of them do ... to bring them through 3D is a great opportunity."

He stressed that there are no plans yet. But, he said, "The Lion King" success "gives a lot of hope to the possibilities that exist with all of our library."

Other studios have similar ideas.

"No Frage about it," Jeff Goldstein, executive VP of domestic distribution at Warner Bros., told TheWrap. "But we've talked about it before. It's not as if we're just thinking about it right now."

He acknowledged, however, that "The Lion King's" unexpectedly strong results will make the examination a little Mehr serious.

Walt Disney's "The Lion King"
Seventeen years after its first release, “The Lion King” is again No. 1 at the box office, wildly exceeding pre-release projections Von pulling in an estimated $29.3 million.

A 3D re-release propelled the G-rated animated feature far beyond its expected $15 million take and well past the weekend’s three debuts -- all of which had disappointing starts.

The No. 2 movie of the weekend was a holdover from last week. The Warner Bros. PG-13 “Contagion" grossed a surprisingly strong $14.5 million -- almost $2 million Mehr than expected.

FilmDistrict's R-rated "Drive," which grossed an estimated $11 million -- at the low end of its $10-to-$15 million pre-release projection -- was the only new movie in the oben, nach oben three.

The debut for the Ryan gänschen, gosling film followed some of the best reviews of the Jahr for any film (evidenced Von a 93 percent Rotten Tomatoes score).

Almost shockingly, however, moviegoers had a very different response, giving it a C-minus grade when polled Von movie customer-satisfaction grader Cinemascore.

The Mighty King Triton.

Character Beschreibung of King Triton from "The Little Mermaid" (1989)

The character of Triton is in many ways rather nondescript, for the mer-king's role in both the plot and the emotional subtext of the movie is as a symbol - and, at that, a symbol of two different things. First, he is the symbol of constitutional authority, convention and staidness: he is the establishment against which Ariel is rebelling, the past which she wishes to leave behind. Second, he symbolizes parental authority; in this respect, the fact that he is a mighty king (and she a princess) is irrelevant. What is relevant is that he is her father: like most young women, she must go through the process of switching her allegiance (by which term we don't mean subservience) to a male outside the family. This process is frequently painful for both participants but is necessary, as we see exemplified close to the movie's end, when Triton and Ariel embrace just before her wedding to Eric: it is the first moment in which we see genuine Liebe expressed between them, yet...

The beautiful Princess Jasmine

Walt Disney Character Beschreibung of Princess jasmin from "Aladdin" (1992)

Mark Henn, who created the look of jasmin for the movie, had various inspirations. One was a theme-park guest at Disney World in Florida, whose long thick mane of black hair sparked off an idea. The most important, however, was his sister Beth - although an actress called Robina Ritchie did live-action modeling to help the animation. Linda Larkin, who gave jasmin her speaking voice, and Lea Salonga, who sang for her, looks not in the slightest like the screen version of Jasmine.
Continuing their practice in several Zurück movies, the Disney creators made jasmin an independent-minded young woman; she is not going to be married off to any old lout, no matter how blue his blood, but is instead determined to marry for love. She is, moverover, impatient with her father's dictum that she should be confined within the palace (much of this movie's theme concerns confinement) and eventually escapes to discover what the outer world is like. There her naïveté...

Roger Ebert: **** (4 Stars)

When I first heard about the project, I wondered if ``The Hunchback of Notre Dame'' could possibly work as a Disney animated feature--if the fearsomefeatures and fate of its sad hero Quasimodo would hold audiences at arm'slength. When I saw the Vorschau trailers for the film, with its songs about``Quasi,'' I feared Disney had gone too far in an attempt to popularize andneutralize the material. I was wrong to doubt, and wrong to fear: ``TheHunchback of Notre Dame'' is the best Disney animated feature since ``Beauty andthe Beast''--a whirling, uplifting, thrilling story with a heart-touchingmessage that emerges from the comedy and song.

The story involves the lonely life of the deformed Quasimodo (voice byTom Hulce), born a ``monster'' and thrown down a well before being rescued andleft to be raised Von the priests of Notre Dame cathedral in Paris. The vastgloomy Gothic shadows of the cathedral become his playground, and his onlyfriends are three stone gargoyles. But his life changes on the Tag of theFestival of Fools, when he ventures out of the cathedral, is elected ``King ofthe Fools,'' and then hears Clopin, king of the gypsies,...

Roger Ebert: **** (4 Stars)

Was there ever a scarier, Mehr exciting animated feature than "Pinocchio"? I doubt it - at least not if Du were between the ages of 5 and 10 when Du saw it, and could identify with its blockheaded little hero. Pinocchio, who is not the brightest char acter in the history of cartoons, wants only to be a good little boy, but he's trapped Von scoundrels who want to use him as a sideshow attraction, and then he's kidnapped and sent to an island where he will be turned into a donkey and put to work in the salt mines all Tag long.

I remember seeing "Pinocchio" for the first time when I was just about the right age, and identifying with every single moment of the movie. Seeing it again the other day, for the third oder fourth time, I was struck again Von what a great animated film it is. Many people choose "Snow White" as their Favorit feature cartoon from Disney's golden age. My choice is "Pinocchio." The movie, made in 1940 and carefully restored for the 1992 rerelease, comes from the era of full animation, before Disney and all the other animators started cutting corners. New films like "The Little Mermaid" and "Beauty and the Beast"...

Roger Ebert's Review of Walt Disney's "Hercules" (1997)
Roger Ebert: ***½ (3 and a half Stars)

The wonder is that it took Disney so long to get to the gods of Greek mythology. ``Hercules'' jumps into the ancient legends feet-first, cheerfully tossing out what won't fit and combining what's left into a new look and a lighthearted style.

Starting with a Day-Glo Olympian city in the clouds, and using characters based on the drawing style of the British illustrator Gerald Scarfe, this new animated feature has something old (mythology), something new (a Pegasus equipped with helicopter blades), something borrowed (a gospel Singen group) and something blue (the flaming hair of Hades, which turns red when he gets mad--it works like a mood ring).

Hercules, known as Herc, is a rather different character here than in the pages of ``Bullfinch's Mythology.'' There, Du may recall, he murdered his wife and children. Here he's a big cute stück, hunk who's so clumsy he knocks over temples Von accident, but Du gotta Liebe the guy. In fact, as film critic Jack Mathews has pointed out, the Disney storytellers have merged the Hercules of myth with the modern-day superhero, Superman: In both ``Hercules'' and the Superman...

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 a series of annual media events from Disney, which with "The Little Mermaid," "Beauty and the Beast" and "Aladdin" reinvented its franchise of animated feature films. The inspiration for these Kürzlich films comes from the earliest feature Cartoons created Von Walt Disney himself, who in Filme like "Dumbo," with the chaining of Mrs. Jumbo, and "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs," with its wicked stepmother, tapped into primal fears and desires. Later Disney films drifted off into the neverland of innocuous "children's movies," which were harmless but not very exciting....

Roger Ebert's Review of "Aladdin" (1992)
Roger Ebert: *** (3 Stars)

Robin Williams and Animation were born for one another, and in "Aladdin" they finally meet. Williams' speed of comic invention has always been too fast for flesh and blood; the way he flashes in and out of characters can be dizzying. In Disney's new animated film "Aladdin," he's liberated at last, playing a genie who has complete freedom over his form - who can instantly be anybody oder anything.

The genie is the best thing in the movie, which is good fun but not on a par with "The Little Mermaid" and "Beauty and the Beast," the two films with which Disney essentially gave rebirth to featurelength animation. The weakness of the film is in its leads, a straße urchin named Aladin and a sultan's daughter, Jasmine. As a romantic couple, they're pale and routine, especially compared to the chemistry between beast and the beauty. They look unformed, as if even the filmmakers didn't see them as real individuals.

All of the film's best moments come from the genie and the other supporting characters, which include a plump little sultan, his scheming vizier, an angry papagei named Iago, a chattering monkey, a friendly flying...

Roger Ebert's Review of "The Little Mermaid" (1989)
Roger Ebert: **** (4 Stars)

Walt Disney's "The Little Mermaid" is a jolly and inventive animated Fantasy - a movie that's so creative and so much fun it deserves comparison with the best Disney work of the past.

It's based on the Hans Christian Andersen tale about a mermaid who falls in Liebe with a prince, but the Disney animators have added a gallery of new supporting characters, including an octopus named Ursula who is their most satisfying villainess since the witch in "Snow White."

Watching "The Little Mermaid," I began to feel that the magic of Animation had been restored to us. After the early years of Walt Disney's pathfinding feature-length cartoons, we entered into a long, dark age in which frame-by-frame Animation was too expensive, and even the great Disney Animation team began using shortcuts. Now computers have taken the busywork out of the high-priced hands of humans, who are free to realize even the most elaborate flights of imagination. And that's certainly what they do in this film.

Max, Prince Eric's good-natured old dog.
The Encyclopedia of Walt Disney's Animated Characters: From Mickey maus to Hercules by

Character Beschreibung of Max from "The Little Mermaid" (1989)

Max is Eric's big, shaggy, ebullient, flobby-eared Old English Sheepdog; as a member of that species he obviously bears quite a strong physical resemblance to the Colonel in One Hundred and One Dalmatians, but Max has no pretensions to military competence: he is everybody's fun-loving, bouncy darling.
Well, not everybody's. He alone of the land-based characters immediately recognizes Vanessa as a wrong'un, and snarls at her as ferociously as his roly-poly appearance will permit. Naturally - having adored Ariel on sight - he joins in soon afterwards with the efforts of the marine Tiere to disrupt the marriage ceremony.

Ariel, the little mermaid

Character Beschreibung of Princess Ariel from "The Little Mermaid" (1989)

Tawny-haired Ariel was one of the most immediately beliebt animated heroines to emerge from the Disney stable for a very long time - indeed, it's hard to remember any at all that might match her in this respect. It is easy enough to explain away this phenomenal success in terms of sexual allure, of which she has plenty, yet that doesn't really get to the herz of the matter, for in many ways she is also a very childlike character.
Ariel is a girl who is in the process of becoming a sexually attractive woman; thus our responses to her, while linked to her sexuality, are nostalgic rather than prurient. This is particularly evident in the scenes when Ariel has just come ashore in human form and has discovered that she's got legs. Despite the obvious sexual overtones in the fact that she is now biifurcate, where she really appeals to us is in her wonder at finding these marvellous new appendages joined onto her. We're already smiling in resonance with her...

Character Beschreibung of Prince Phillip and Samson from "Sleeping Beauty" (1959)

The handsome Prince in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs was nothing Mehr than a cipher - it was not thought necessary even to name him. Prince Charming in Aschenputtel was Mehr than just a plot device, but nevertheless still had only a minor part. For the third in their trio of great fairy stories, however, Disney gave the handsome Prince a far meatier role, and consequently his character had to be portrayed in Mehr detail.
Phillip is gentle, good-natured, well spoken, courteous, romantic and above all courageous - just as Du would expect him to be - but what is interesting is that these characteristics are all well blended together to create a convincing, fully rounded personality. When he fights his way through the forest of thorns oder battles the Dragon, this behaviour is perfectly consonant with the gentleness he displayed towards Aurora as well as with his determination of mind when he tells his father that he is going to marry...

Snow White

Character Beschreibung of Snow White from "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" (1937)

Snow White in the Disney version is, strangely, not in fact very beautiful - although extremely attractive. Presumably deliberately, Disney opted for girl-next-door prettiness rather than out-and-out beauty. Moreover, Snow White appears to be extremely youthful, aged perhaps between 12 and 14 (although modelled Von 18-year-old Marjorie Belcher), and still with a trace of early adolescent plumpness. However, framed Von her dark, shortish hair, her face has an infinitely appealing innocent charm and sweetness.
Snow White's voice reinforces this impression of youth. This voice was supplied Von Adriana Caselotti, the daughter of a Hollywood Singen teacher. Interestingly, among the many hundreds of young women who were auditioned for the part was Donna Durbin; she was turned down on the grounds that her voice was too mature, too well honed. What is startling is that the Snow White we see and hear is in fact an older version of the original character...

Character Beschreibung 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 Mehr 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 events. (This business of scrying - farseeing - has become very beliebt in Kürzlich Disney animated features: it plays an important part in the plot of Beauty and the Beast as well)
The two eels (indistinguishable except for their eye colors) play a significant part in one of the movie's most effective minor pieces of animation. As Ursula is building up in the first few lines of her song "Poor Unfortunate Souls" they swim sinuously around her, reflecting the curves of her ample body, seeming to trail like the long scarves...

Character Beschreibung 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 the evil).
The Blue Fairy is a blonde of pristine beauty; she is so realistically depicted that it seems almost as if one were watching some kind of special-effects treatment of a live actress rather than an animation. Her voice enhances her purity of image: it was supplied Von Evelyn Venable, a movie actress from Cincinnati, and was recorded in a unusual way. She spoke each of her lines several times over, using different inflections, and then the soundmen dubbed in the version they thought worked most effectively, in the context...

Character Beschreibung of Tarzan from "The Black Cauldron" (1985)

Taran, the Assistant Pig-Keeper who wants to make good Von becoming a great warrior, is a member of that great fraternity of Disney central protagonists who are rather indefinitely characterized. To say that they are nonentities - as some critics have done - is to be a little harsh, because they are not; but they are definitely, and quite deliberately, painted in pastel colours so that the Mehr ostentatiously bizarre characters around them may shine. The "new breed" of Disney animators saw fit to make Taran an amalgam between the (approximate) appearance of Wart and the personality of Mowgli. This was probably a wise decision, since, The Black Cauldron is, debatably, overloaded with strong principal characters, and so a powerfully portrayed Taran would simply have eclipsed such delightful creations as Fflewddur Fflam, Gurgi and Doli.

Character Beschreibung of Ursula from "The Little Mermaid" (1989)

The Emmy-winning Pat Carroll, who voiced the part of the sea-witch (spelt with a b), is a very experienced actress on both stage and screen. Carroll envisioned the role as "part Shakespearean actress, with all the flair, flamboyance and theatricality, and part used-car salesman with a touch of con artist". She deliberately deepend her own voice, especially for the Singen (she's naturally a contralto); in an interview with Lou Cedrone she added: "I'm not really a singer, and I would rather have talked-sang the role, but they wanted me to sing it, so I did... The producers sharpened and heightened all of it, particularly the singing." The first stanza oder so of "Poor Unfortunate Souls", before she hits her triumphant stride, shows the necessity of this.
Ursula is a marvellous villainess, one of the Disney classics of her malicious genre. She has the gross oleaginous unsubtlety of The Great maus Detective's villain Ratigan but substantially more...

Character Beschreibung of Belle from "Beauty and the Beast" (1991)

It was decided early that the movie's heroine should display a lot Mehr spirit than the somewhat passive virtue of the character in the original fairy tale. The liveaction performance for the animators' reference was supplied Von Sherri Stoner, the actress who had not long before served the same funtion so very excellently for The Little Mermaid's Ariel, another feisty female part. Belle's part was spoken and sung Von Paige O'Hara, a talented and strong actress who could be relied upon to give the role both depth and variety: she was able to provide the right lightness of touch for the comic scenes and the dramatic strenth required for the serious ones. Belle was also gegeben a very prominent role in terms of appearance time: she is on screen for just under half an hour, which is twice as long as any of the other characters. Her animators, under the supervision of the young Jasmes Baxter (who used an early sketch Von xstoryman Roger Allers as a main reference), let...

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 füchsin, vixen have the screen presence of an attractive woman. In part this must be due to her voice, supplied Von Monica Evans, but this cannot be a total explanation. One must simply applaud the skill of the Disney animators.

Character Beschreibung 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 Von 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 has described as "warm and fuzzy" - what used to be a typical Disney animal, in fact. As a cub he is as cocksure as the average preteen, and as gullible. It could not be made Mehr patent that "Uncle Scar" is a stinker from root to branch, yet the young Simba swallows everything he says. The characterization is such as to evoke great sympathy - we have all been through that stage ourselves.
