"of course all the characters look the same, it’s disney’s art style!” that argument might actually hold some weight if disney hadn’t already proven that they are perfectly capable of designing female characters with a variety of facial structures and features
"well, cgi is new and they’re still learning how to use the technology…" actually cgi animation is not all that new of a technology, and they seem to have a pretty firm grasp on animating diverse male faces in cgi
and other companies, including one in particular that is directly affiliated with disney, seem perfectly adept at creating female faces that are diverse and expressive and still nice to look at
"ok, well disney’s cgi style is different!" then they are seriously lacking creativity and should probably change it asap since, you know, it’s not very friendly to women to send out this message that if you want to be a princess then you need to have a face like rapunzel because, fun fact, women don’t all look like that and in case you’ve forgotten, popular media plays a huge part in how women perceive themselves and how much self esteem they have
you guys really need to get into looking at concept art ok
look at the original designs for tangled
(thats what flynn originally looked like. he was way cute ok)
and princess and the frog
and originally frozen was going to be about the snow queen and look at how fab she looked
its so cool to see what their original ideas were and how its all drawn out
concept art is way cool
that first Flynn looks kinda how Kristoff turned out whoa
I am digging that cloak of live happy ermine so hard rn
"Walt Disney’s grandniece Abigail Disney — a filmmaker, scholar and social activist — addressed Streep’s comments last Friday on her Facebook page, according to The Hollywood Reporter. ”If you are going to have mixed feelings about a family member (and we all do) take it from me, you really need to be as honest as possible about those feelings, or else you are going to lead yourself into many a blind alley in life!!” she wrote.
She continued her candid views about Walt Disney, who is the subject of the current film Saving Mr. Banks, starring Tom Hanks and Emma Thompson.
"… Anti-Semite? Check. Misogynist? OF COURSE!! Racist? C’mon he made a film (Jungle Book) about how you should stay ‘with your own kind’ at the height of the fight over segregation! As if the ‘King of the Jungle’ number wasn’t proof enough!! How much more information do you need?" Abigail wrote. “But damn, he was hella good at making films and his work has made billions of people happy. There’s no denying it,” she added.
In another Facebook post, Abigail explained her position further. "I feel I have to clarify. I LOVED what Meryl Streep said. I know he was a man of his times and I can forgive him, but Saving Mr Banks was a brazen attempt by the company to make a saint out of the man."lmao his own flesh and blood is less of a disney apologist than some people on this site
