Walt Disney Character Beschreibung of Anastasia Tremaine and Drizella Tremaine from "Cinderella" (1950)

Anastasia Tremaine and Drizella Tremaine are the epitome of spoilt chrildren - the worst type of spoilt chrildren, in fact: those who stay that way right through into adulthood. Their voices are raucous and grating; their Singen is dire; their faces are milk-curdling; their dancing is a little short of terrifying... but all of these things might be forgiven them, and they might succeed in finding...

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

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 was a little boy, I enjoyed to watch the movie, even in slow motion. When I discovered...

Max, Prince Eric's good-natured old dog.

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.
 Max in a happy moment.

Walt Disney Character Beschreibung of Prince Aladin from "Aladdin" (1992)

As is very often the case in the Disney animated features, the story of Aladin as a character is that of growth from selfunderestimation to the realization that the individual has worth and can achieve a particular aim, which is generally living happily ever after with the mate of his choice. The different here is that Aladin tries to cheat - he makes the Genie turn him into a prince so that he can woo Jasmine, and it is...

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"....

Tough, crass and jaded, Ursula is trying to find a way to get back from King Triton the power that once was hers.
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...

Walt Disney Character Beschreibung of Baloo from "The Jungle Book" (1967)

It had been originally planned that Baloo should have no Mehr than a cameo role, but the animators (Ollie Johnston was largely responsible for him) found Phill Harris's vocalization fascinating to work with and so in due course Baloo became one of the movie's major stars. Indeed, in terms of popularity and screen presence, he is the main star, sterne of The Jungle Book, eclipsing even Bagheera, whose role is much Mehr fundamental to...

Character Beschreibung of Ronno from "Bambi" (1945)


The part of Ronno, the buck whom Bambi fights over Faline, is small yet quite vivid, all the Mehr so as the animators adopted a semi-abstract treatment for large sections of the fight. The striking thing about Ronno is that he is much Mehr solid than Bambi: darker in colour and heavier of build, he seems to be definitely heavier and definitely older than our hero. Clearly it was important to portray him in this way, for thereby Disney ensured that our sympathies are doubly engaged on Bambi's side - he is the underdog, triumphing even although the odds are stacked against him.

Walt Disney Character Beschreibung of Esmeralda from "The Hunchback of Notre Dame" (1996)

If Quasimodo is Disney's ugliest hero, Esmeralda is indubitably the company's sexiest - apart from Jessica Rabbit. Esmeralda, the gupsy dancer who performs in the straße in order to earn coppers to feed herself and her pet goat Djali, has a huge mane of black hair, turquoise eyes that flash whenever her ire is roused, a risqué sense of humor, and an approach to life that is underlined Von an attitude of steel....

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 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...

Walt Disney Character Beschreibung of Jake from "The Rescuers Down Under" (1990)

The character of the Australian Mr. Competent, Jake, has a very difficult role to perform: he must be simultaneously an adventure hero and a comical figure; moreover, he mustn't be krokodil Dundee. This last point the animators seems to have taken very much to herz for, although Jake's persona has many of the macho, tough-guy attributes of that hero and countless other Australian stereotypes, the core of the characterization...

Hello, fellow WDC club people! This is an appreciation post for some of my personal favourite characters from various Disney animated movies. The characters in this Artikel will be listed in alphabetical order, and they are all the ones whose Fanpop spots I've joined... so far! Of course, there are plenty of other Disney characters I adore too, but I guess I had to draw the line somewhere.

I might Mitmachen some Mehr fanclubs for Disney characters eventually, but when I do I probably won't bother to update this article. Not after I spent ages carefully organising the little graphics so that the colours...

Walt Disney Character Beschreibung of The Sultan from "Aladdin" (1992)

Portly and chubby-faced, with a large turban and a small stature, the Sultan hardly conforms to one's image of the average despot, yet he is a despot toward his daughter: confined within the palace walls, she must choose a suitor of noble blood Von the time she is sixteen, because that is the law. It does not occur to the Sultan until very late in the movie that, although he did not originate the law, it is within his power to change...

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....

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...

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...

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...
