 Walt Disney's 28th Animated Feature, The Little Mermaid (1989)
Walt Disney's 28th Animated Feature, The Little Mermaid (1989)
Hello fellow Disney Fans.

Now, as Du all know, I Liebe Disney Animation. I Liebe to watch the movies, hear the songs and look at the characters. But one thing I really Liebe is watching the Animation in slow motion. It gives a great insight to how much work the animators puts into their work. It's facinating to me to watch a scene oder a sequence in slow motion, as then I get Mehr details the Weiter time I see the movies.
Now, Du all know how much I Liebe The Little Mermaid. My Favorit movie of all-time. Ever since I discovered to to make gifs, I have made many gifs from various Disney Classics, but...

 Pocahontas' best friend, Nakoma.
Pocahontas' best friend, Nakoma.
The Encyclopedia of Walt Disney's Animated Characters: From Mickey maus to Hercules by
John Grant

Pocahontas's best friend, Nakoma is something of a character in Suchen of a personality; in their pairing, Pocahontas is certainly the dominant one and certainly the brighter. Nakoma represents, in a subtler way than Kocoum, the reluctance of most of the Native Americans to embrace change, and thus contrasts completely with Pocahontas, who is a wild, free spirit enthusiastic to find adventure in each new moment. Their physical appearances reflect this: Pocahontas has a genuine Native American face...

John Grant

It is a recurring theme of this book that Disney's glamorous princes tend on the whole to be cyphers, and Eric (voiced Von Christopher Daniel Barnes, then the US national teenage spokesperson for the enviromental organization Greenpeace) is no exeption. The habit of using purely symbolic characters in the princely role is not normally a particularly noticeable one in the other features; it is only later that we realize that, whereas we have the feeling we've met the other principal characters, the...

 Roger Ebert's Review of Walt Disney's "The Lion King" (1994)
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...

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 Cinderella 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....

Walt Disney Character Beschreibung of Rajah from "Aladdin" (1992)

The characterization of Rajah is one of the most pleasing in the movie; although the role is not a major one, the effect is neatly executed. Before jasmin makes her escape to the souk, Rajah is the only true companion she has - her father, while loving, has no comprehension of her at all. This vast tiger, cleverly animated to give the full impression not just of size but of sheer weight - his shoulders bulge and his movements are ponderous...

Walt Disney Character Beschreibung of Maleficent from "Sleeping Beauty" (1959)

Of all the characters in Sleeping Beauty, the one that everyone remembers, even decades later, is the wicked fairy Maleficent. She is one of the finest creations ever to come out of the Disney studio - and the brilliant transformation of her into the Dragon to fight Phillip merely adds to the strength of the characterization. Even her name - a wonderful combination of "malice" and "malevolent" - testifies to her pure evil....

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...

Walt Disney Character Beschreibung of The Fairy Godmother from "Cinderella" (1950)

The absentminded Fairy Godmother - she even mislays her magic wand from time to time - was not universally approved: some critics found her too saccharine. Thomas A. Nelson, who has written one of the best insgesamt critiques of the movie and its characters, remarks that her "jovial and absent-minded good nature comes off as a bit too sticky, that extra helping of the cute and charming which irratates rather than entertains"....

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.

Walt Disney Character Beschreibung of Thomas from "Pocahontas" (1995)

A callow youth, Thomas epitomizes the changing mood of the settlers. When we first see him he is Küssen his mother goodbye on the dock in London - they may never see each other again. Within an instant, however, he is enthusiatic about the challenge of the voyage and Von the prospect of serving with the great "savage" slayer John Smith. Later Smith saves his life as, during the storm at sea, Thomas very courageously attempts to...

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...

 One of Walt Disney's most beloved characters, Bambi.
One of Walt Disney's most beloved characters, Bambi.
The Encyclopedia of Walt Disney's Animated Characters: From Mickey maus to Hercules by
John Grant

Bambi is not a tightly plotted movie in the way that Dumbo, for example, is: it depends much Mehr for its effect on the superb Animation and the exquisitely executed backdrop of the forest. As with the story, most of the characterization is not profound - one does not find oneself rooting for Bambi in the same way that one does for, say, Dumbo (again) oder Snow White. The only really strong characterizations are those of Friend Owl and Thumper. But this lack of depth in the characterization is not...

Third in my Slow Motion Animation Gifs Artikel Series, I give Du Beauty and the Beast from 1991.
Now, Beauty wasn't one of my Favorit Disney Filme when I grew up, but over time, I've come to be rather fond of it. The Musik is great, I have the whole score (songs included) on my computer. The Animation is good as well, but there are a few scenes where I think Disney could have done it better. But I'll get to them as I make Mehr GIFs from the movie.




Image #1: Princess Belle

Belle goes to town and sings about how everything always is the same.
I always loved this shot of Belle. She looks really beautiful here.

Image #2: Princess Belle

As she has entered the West Wing of the Beast's castle, Belle stumbles upon a torn picture of the human version of the Beast. She takes a closer look at the picture.
Now, this sequence of Belle as she studies the picture, is just perfect. Belle is really beautiful here.

Walt Disney's 32nd Animated Feature, The Lion King (1994)
Hello again, my fellow Disney Fans :)

This Artikel is similar to the one I did a while back with The Little Mermaid, but this one will be about The Lion King. Now, The Lion King, for me, is also one of my oben, nach oben Favorit Disney Classics. I think it has really gorgeous animation, both character Animation and also the backgrounds/locations. The way the animators brought all these Tiere to life is just astonishing!
Like I wrote in the piece for Mermaid, I think it's funny to watch certain scenes in slow motion. That way Du get Mehr of out the animation. Du can see where the animators have animated...

While the Animation department was busily trying to complete Oliver & Company Von the imminent deadline, Ron Clements and John Musker, the two directors of The Great maus Detective were working on an adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen's beloved story "The Little Mermaid." There had been astounding growth in every branch of the department from computer-generated Bilder to the finest character animation. There was also a villain in this new picture that would take her place alongside the greatest villains the studio had ever created. In the Umfrage that showed Cruella De Vil as the most...

Today I am Google searching the new Disney movie "Moana" to see what it is about.
The first result is the trailer, and it features a credit for songs, which makes me exited because Disney hasn't made an animated musical since Frozen. However, the trailer doesn't tell us about Moana herself. But this Weiter result explains why!
This news story is a brief history of Disney keeping princesses out of trailers. It is marketing strategy to make the whole family see the movie. But we should continue discussing the movie.
The Weiter result does not tell us much, so on the Weiter result we found three summaries...

Character Beschreibung of Maid Marian from "Robin Hood" (1973)

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.

Walt Disney Character Beschreibung of Jafar from "Aladdin" (1993)

The evil vizier is represented as a caricature villain - he has a long thin face, a curly black wisp of beard, two great spikes of something sticking out from shoulders of his customary garb, an unpleasant habit of hypnotizing people, a sinister voice, and very much more. However, the exaggeration works: the characterization is such that we early become fully aware of his evil, and we cheer when he gets his deserved comeuppance. Much...
