 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 wewe all know, I upendo Disney Animation. I upendo to watch the movies, hear the songs and look at the characters. But one thing I really upendo is watching the uhuishaji 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 au a sequence in slow motion, as then I get zaidi details the inayofuata time I see the movies.
Now, wewe all know how much I upendo The Little Mermaid. My inayopendelewa movie of all-time. Ever since I was a little boy, I enjoyed to watch the movie, even in slow motion. When I discovered...

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 makala 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 jiunge some zaidi 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...

Character Description 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 kwa 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...

Prince Eric

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 kwa 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 "The Little Mermaid" (1989)
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 ndoto - 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 upendo 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 uhuishaji had been restored to us. After the...

Character Description of Ronno from "Bambi" (1945)


The part of Ronno, the buck whom Bambi fights over Faline, is small yet quite vivid, all the zaidi 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 zaidi 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.

Character Description 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 kwa 18-year-old Marjorie Belcher), and still with a trace of early adolescent plumpness. However, framed by...

Character Description 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 wanyama to disrupt the marriage ceremony.

Walt Disney Character Description 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 Description 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 Description of Princess Ariel from "The Little Mermaid" (1989)

Tawny-haired Ariel was one of the most immediately maarufu 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 moyo of the matter, for in many ways she is also a very childlike character....

Character Description 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 imba (she's naturally a contralto); in an interview with Lou Cedrone...

Walt Disney Character Description 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 imba 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...

While the uhuishaji department was busily trying to complete Oliver & Company kwa the imminent deadline, Ron Clements and John Musker, the two directors of The Great panya, kipanya 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 picha 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 kura za maoni that showed Cruella De Vil as the most...

Third in my Slow Motion uhuishaji Gifs makala Series, I give wewe Beauty and the Beast from 1991.
Now, Beauty wasn't one of my inayopendelewa Disney sinema when I grew up, but over time, I've come to be rather fond of it. The muziki is great, I have the whole score (songs included) on my computer. The uhuishaji 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 zaidi 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.

The Encyclopedia of Walt Disney's Animated Characters: From Mickey panya, kipanya to Hercules by

Pocahontas's best friend, Nakoma is something of a character in tafuta 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...

PrueFever aka Jørgen with his idol, Prue Halliwell aka Shannen Doherty.
Life has never been easy for PrueFever aka Jørgen Jørgensen (J.J. for short). When his mom started drinking alcohol a few weeks after his birth, his father did the same thing a couple of years later, which led to Social Service removing him and his sisters from nyumbani and placed them in different Foster Homes in Denmark. Then in 1997 J.J. was diagnosed with Aspergers Syndrome, although on the mild end of the ASD spectrum. Then in 2007 his mother died and in 2008 his father was killed. And yet, when fanpop met up with him in Planet Hollywood in London, it was a fresh, smiling young man we met....

One of Walt Disney's most beloved characters, Bambi.

Bambi is not a tightly plotted movie in the way that Dumbo, for example, is: it depends much zaidi for its effect on the superb uhuishaji 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) au Snow White. The only really strong characterizations are those of Friend Owl and Thumper. But this lack of depth in the characterization is not...

Walt Disney Character Description 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 kwa 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...
