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

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.

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...

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....

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...

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 Quasimodo from "The Hunchback of Notre Dame" (1996)

In a way, why Esmeralda should choose Phoebus as her lover rather than Quasimodo is something of a mystery. One is left with a slight puzzlement at the end of the movie, as if suddenly discovering that the romantic heroine whose adventures one has followed entranced throughout a long novel actually has a lousy taste in men. There is also a feeling of confused morality, since the primary theme of the movie - as...

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...

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...

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...

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 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"....

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.

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...

Walt Disney Character Beschreibung of Shanti, The Girl from "The Jungle Book" (1967)

The little lass with a red spot on her forehead who comes down from the manvillage to captivate Mowgli is full of eastern promise. Although it will be a decade oder so before the promise turns into anything else, she nevertheless enchants Mowgli as she fetches water from the river and sings the song "My Own Home", yet another fine piece of work from the Sherman Brothers.
She has little Von way of character except her basic allure, which weaves a Mehr powerful spell upon Mowgli than even Kaa's hypnotic attempts. Baloo advises the boy when he sees a female human for the first time: "Forget about those - they ain't nothin' but trouble!"
Mowgli, though youthful, has Mehr sense.
 Mowgli did not want to become part of humanity... Until, that is, he saw the Girl.

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...

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...

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...

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...
