General Public: OMG NOTHING GOOD HAS COME OUT FROM DISNEY/THIS MOVIE HAS BEEN THE FIRST GOOD DISNEY MOVIE SINCE THE LION KING.
The Lion King came out in 1994. Since then, just to name a few, we’ve had (with high commercial/domestic/whatever success mind):
Pixar basically saved Disney, let’s not kid ourselves.And I personally LOVED the Princess and the Frog. But from what I read up, it seems like it didn’t do too well commercially? The animation in that movie is AMAZING. And Dr. Facilier!
Yeah, it was mostly just popular among animators who were really happy to see Disney doing 2D animation again. It’s box office failure was also sometimes cited as the reason they re-branded Tangled as being about a dude on an adventure rather than Rapunzel escaping a tower.
Brave, tho? The storyline didn’t involve menfolk. Other than the whole suitors thing. Fergus didn’t save anyone in the end. Merida and Elinor defeated Mor’du (male).
Tangled was released before brave, so no one had that to point to when Disney was reconsidering the wisdom of making princess movies. Also, as I recall, Brave didn’t do as well in the box office as was projected (although it was hardly a failure). And there was a lot of talk when Brave came out about how people would take their sons and daughters to see the rest of the Pixar movies, but would only take their daughters to see a female centric Pixar movie.
It’s worth noting the Disney only changed the branding for Tangled, not the film itself. The film was still very female character oriented, but the name was changed from Rapunzel Unbraided to something that didn’t reference the female main character, and the ads mostly featured Rapunzel’s love interest which kind of made him look like the main character.
I think the ads for Frozen did something similar. Going in, I was expecting the love interests to have larger roles than they did. I think Disney might have a new strategy for marketing films about women without failing; just advertise them like they’re films with male leads.
I hope John doesn’t mind me saying this. But I love you. ♥ Mostly your brain.
Water nymphs. These delightful statues were brought to England from Italy by Whitaker White in 1904 and are currently located at York House Gardens (Twickenham) alongside river Thames (South-West of London).
Because the ballet tag features too many people of only one body type. Let’s not pretend you need to be a certain weight to be able to perform fouetté en tournant.
This is for my mom, who told me when I was seven years old that I was too fat to be a ballerina.
How badass is this woman. OMG. She is balancing more than 200 lbs on one toe.
That is skill, ladies and gents.
What was that? Fat people are lazy and weak and OH SORRY I CAN’T HEAR YOU OVER THE AWESOMENESS THAT IS THIS PICTURE.
