This 기사 is similar to MaidofOrleans' 기사 but it has a unique twist. I started 글쓰기 mine a few days before she 게시됨 hers. So don't worry I'm not stealing her idea 또는 anything. Plus she knows it's different from hers. We talked about it in her article's 코멘트 section.

Different perspectives - my past memories, my mum's memories, memories involving a friend, other fandom perspective and recent points of view.

Feel free to use my idea to make your own version if it inspires you. Just make sure 당신 credit me please for the original idea.


Snow White

I was so excited when I saw a sequel of Disney’s Snow White out on VHS. Nevermind that the main character looked different, wore a different dress, had a different voice and the 애니메이션 seemed 더 많이 80’s. The dwarves sisters helped guide Snow White to the villain’s 성 so she could save her prince from a male villain who turned his enemies into stone. It was great and I enjoyed it 더 많이 than the original. Ah youth. The ability to watch something and let everything else go over your head. Except I did come to my senses on my 초 viewing years after as a young adult. I disliked it and thought it was childish. I tracked down the original and thought Disney’s Snow White was superior to it.


Cinderella

When my mum and her cousin (also my aunt because the family from my mum’s side are tight knit) were younger. They went to see 신데렐라 at the cinema. My aunt was so excited to see what Cinderella’s ball 겉옷, 가운 looked like. But when watching the iconic moment, she leaned over to my mum and said “it’s ugly.” My mum agreed. Mum says she was so disappointed. She thought it was dull, not pretty. My aunt wanted to see something different from current fashion. 더 많이 fantasy-like and colourful. She wanted a 담홍색, 핑크 ball gown. And after all of these years, her opinion hasn’t changed. She hates it with passion.


Aurora

“Sorry I don’t know who she is”- my life long friend.
“Oh I don’t know her” - my best friend.
“That’s not Sleeping Beauty! Sleeping Beauty has brown hair” - my mum.
...and then she said;
“No! No, you’re kidding aren’t you? This is a joke.”
Then I go into 디즈니 geek mode express what her real name is and explain why she is blonde.
....then mum frowns and says;
“Oh. Well in the original story she had brown hair. What was that 당신 said? (I got tongue tied on saying Aurora) Say it again. (I tried again) Spell it. (Tries to say it herself twice in two different ways - equally difficult). I’m unsure how to pronounce it. Maybe 당신 could research online on how to pronounce it.”
To which I said 또는 rambled;
“Or we could just call her Briar Rose. It’s easier and I can pronounce it. Of course I’ll always use Aurora online because it’s pretty and I’m using it when I 글쓰기 about something, not saying out loud for all to hear. But yeah I could look into it, if 당신 want me too?”
She said; “yes, it would be interesting to find out.”
....that was 더 많이 than a few years ago. I remember it like it was yesterday. But my mum has no memory of it. Just as well, because I forgot to do the research!

Ariel

Rewatching the movie as a mature adult, I’m ashamed to say it does seem like Ariel sold her voice and got legs for a man. Thankfully I’m still very loyal to the TV series and know that Ariel has 더 많이 depth than what is displayed in the movie. Oh how I wish they would release the TV series on DVD (all regions). I miss it so much!


Belle

Don’t 당신 just hate it when Hollywood portrays intelligent people with thick educated sounding voices? They sound like Vulcans from 별, 스타 Trek. Even animated characters. From my teens to my young adulthood I disliked Belle’s voice for that very reason. In the last two years, I realised Belle’s voice was that way because the voice actress was told to put on a French accent.


Jasmine

Who goes to Disneyland Paris just to buy 인형 that 당신 can’t find in the local 디즈니 stores? Me. I’ve done it twice. Once in 1999 and another time in 2014. In early 1999 I wanted 재스민 속, 재 스민 in her purple dress. The local 디즈니 store seemed to have 알라딘 and Genie stuff but only one 또는 two things of Jasmine. The doll wasn’t special enough. It was just plain and boring and I thought it didn’t look like Jasmine. I remember discussing it with my mum in the car. How although the doll in the store was clearly made 의해 Disney, face wise it looked like a Mattel version. I don’t know what I was talking about.I was in my own little world. Anyway, at Disneyland Paris, I bought two 재스민 속, 재 스민 인형 and an 알라딘 one. The Paris 인형 looked 더 많이 special. Jasmine’s regular outfit looked gorgeous with the gold spots decorating the bedlah pants. I got a double pack of 알라딘 and 재스민 속, 재 스민 in their end of movie clothes. I remember looking in several shops around the park but couldn’t find 재스민 속, 재 스민 in her purple dress anywhere. I was disappointed but I was very happy with the ones I found. So that trip was successful. 2014 trip, I went back hoping the purple dress doll would be in stock. But I forgot a very important detail, the new makeovers. I was so disappointed but I also wasn’t surprised. In every store in the park, Tiana, Rapunzel and Ariel seemed to have the biggest 우주 for merchandise. Followed Cinderella, Aurora, Snow White and Belle. Merida and 재스민 속, 재 스민 had a very small section. Pocahontas and 뮬란 didn’t have a section at all. Nah, clearly the new makeovers took over the merchandise, Wiping out the old merchandise of the Renaissance era. Who knows maybe they ran out of stock completely on the 년 또는 a few years after 1999?


Pocahontas

Two days after watching the movie for the first time, I bought another film about Pocahontas. It was live action and for some reason, I thought it was a live action version of the 디즈니 version. The film was closer to her historic life than the fiction that 디즈니 created. I remember learning about Pocahontas in school, thinking oh my god she was a real person?! And then thinking hmmm nah, I prefer the 디즈니 version. Now as an adult, I still don’t care much for the history. I like Disney’s Pocahontas on her own meaning her personality and spirituality. But I’m not loyal to the movie anymore. I tried to watch it as an adult after about ten 또는 더 많이 years since I watched it last. It bored me. I ended up turning it off and giving it away to a friend to keep.

Mulan

I didn't know who 뮬란 was before watching the movie and the special features on the DVD. I remember being in awe, thinking wow, she was a real person! Later several years on I realised my mistake. Folklore person who may have been real but might not have been.


Tiana

I had a "Tiana moment" whilst looking at rankings for Favourite Winx Transformations last night. Enchantix is 더 많이 often than not, no.1 on each list. But I was looking at the group picture thinking I used think they were the best. But Layla/Aisha has the worst outfit, it looked gorgeous in blue. Like Tiana does in her 초 party dress. Why did they change?! Layla/Aisha looks better in blue than she does in green. However out of the two, Tiana can pull off wearing green, better than Layla/Aisha can.


Rapunzel

Mum watched 라푼젤 with me, a few years ago. She didn't like Rapunzel during the first half. Mum found her annoying, whiny and childish. During the 초 half, Mum liked her more. She thought she was mature and less whiny. I just sat back in silence let my mum form her own opinion. I remember agreeing with her during the first part. It was a time when I hadn't made up my mind about how I felt about Rapunzel. I liked her but I didn't 사랑 her. Her popularity annoyed me and in general I wasn't a Modern era Princess follower.


Merida

I've watched 메리다와 마법의 숲 four times. Each time, Merida has been my favourite character. But whilst I 사랑 her. I can’t help but think she doesn’t belong in official DP franchise. The movie doesn’t feel like a 디즈니 movie. It feels like one of the better animated 영화 like 아나스타샤 for example from another company. It’s a pity she couldn’t be a 인기 standalone princess like Anna and Moana. Because that’s where she belongs I think. Alternatively, this is not going to happen but we can fantasise; make a franchise for heroine warriors, include Kida, Jane, Nala and anyone else who fits.
