 Roger Ebert's Review of Walt Disney's "The Lion King" (1994)
Roger Ebert's Review of Walt Disney's "The Lion King" (1994)
Roger Ebert: ***½ (3 and a half Stars)

My generation grew up mourning the death of Bambi's mother. Now comes "The Lion King," with the death of Mufasa, the father of the lion cub who will someday be king. The 디즈니 animators know that cute little cartoon characters are not sufficient to manufacture dreams. There have to be dark corners, frightening moments, and ancient archetypes like the crime of regicide. "The Lion King," which is a superbly drawn animated feature, is surprisingly solemn in its subject matter, and may even be too intense for very young children.

The film is the latest in...

Walt 디즈니 Character 설명 of Prince 알라딘 from "Aladdin" (1992)

As is very often the case in the 디즈니 animated features, the story of 알라딘 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 알라딘 tries to cheat - he makes the Genie turn him into a prince so that he can woo Jasmine, and it is...

Hello, fellow WDC club people! This is an appreciation post for some of my personal favourite characters from various 디즈니 animated movies. The characters in this 기사 will be listed in alphabetical order, and they are all the ones whose 팬팝 spots I've joined... so far! Of course, there are plenty of other 디즈니 characters I adore too, but I guess I had to draw the line somewhere.

I might 가입하기 some 더 많이 fanclubs for 디즈니 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...

Walt 디즈니 Character 설명 of 아나스타샤 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 노래 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...

Character 설명 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 의해 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's 28th Animated Feature, The Little Mermaid (1989)
Hello fellow 디즈니 Fans.

As 당신 all know, I 사랑 디즈니 Animation. I 사랑 to watch the movies, hear the songs and look at the characters. But one thing I really 사랑 is watching the 애니메이션 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 또는 a sequence in slow motion, as then I get 더 많이 details the 다음 time I see the movies.
Now, 당신 all know how much I 사랑 The Little Mermaid. My 가장 좋아하는 movie of all-time. Ever since I was a little boy, I enjoyed to watch the movie, even in slow motion. When I discovered...

Today I am 구글 searching the new 디즈니 movie "Moana" to see what it is about.
The first result is the trailer, and it features a credit for songs, which makes me exited because 디즈니 hasn't made an animated musical since Frozen. However, the trailer doesn't tell us about Moana herself. But this 다음 result explains why!
This news story is a brief history of 디즈니 keeping princesses out of trailers. It is marketing strategy to make the whole family see the movie. But we should continue discussing the movie.
The 다음 result does not tell us much, so on the 다음 result we found three summaries...

Walt 디즈니 Character 설명 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...

Walt 디즈니 Character 설명 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 의해 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...

With the stunning success of "The Lion King" this weekend, 디즈니 might re-release other classics in 3D, its distribution chief told TheWrap Sunday.

"It's probably one of the first things we're going to be having a conversation about 다음 week," studio distribution chief Dave Hollis said. "When 당신 look at our library, there are some very special gems as it were, and for those that transcend time -- and a lot of them do ... to bring them through 3D is a great opportunity."

He stressed that there are no plans yet. But, he said, "The Lion King" success "gives a lot of hope to the possibilities...

Roger Ebert: **** (4 Stars)

Was there ever a scarier, 더 많이 exciting animated feature than "Pinocchio"? I doubt it - at least not if 당신 were between the ages of 5 and 10 when 당신 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 의해 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 일 long.

I remember seeing "Pinocchio" for the first...

Character 설명 of Prince Phillip and Samson from "Sleeping Beauty" (1959)

The handsome Prince in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs was nothing 더 많이 than a cipher - it was not thought necessary even to name him. Prince Charming in Cinderella was 더 많이 than just a plot device, but nevertheless still had only a minor part. For the third in their trio of great fairy stories, however, 디즈니 gave the handsome Prince a far meatier role, and consequently his character had to be portrayed in 더 많이 detail....

Character 설명 of Belle from "Beauty and the Beast" (1991)

It was decided early that the movie's heroine should display a lot 더 많이 spirit than the somewhat passive virtue of the character in the original fairy tale. The liveaction performance for the animators' reference was supplied 의해 Sherri Stoner, the actress who had not long before served the same funtion so very excellently for The Little Mermaid's Ariel, another feisty female part. Belle's part was spoken and sung 의해 Paige O'Hara, a...

Walt 디즈니 Character 설명 of Rajah from "Aladdin" (1992)

The characterization of Rajah is one of the most pleasing in the movie; although the role is not a major one, the effect is neatly executed. Before 재스민 속, 재 스민 makes her escape to the souk, Rajah is the only true companion she has - her father, while loving, has no comprehension of her at all. This vast tiger, cleverly animated to give the full impression not just of size but of sheer weight - his shoulders bulge and his movements are ponderous...

Walt 디즈니 Character 설명 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 디즈니 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....

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

Walt 디즈니 Character 설명 of Djali from "The Hunchback of Notre Dame" (1996)

Esmeralda's pet goat possesses human intelligence and a fierce loyalty to his owner. When she is persecuted 의해 the two guards in the early 거리 sequence, it is Djali - before Phoebus intervenes - who initially almost sees them off, butting them with determined ferocity, even though he is a very small goat. He helps in other ways, most notably 의해 assisting her in her oft-used disguise as a cowled male figure - he...

Where the Beast is ugy on the outsider but proves to be beautiful within, Gaston is the exact reverse: his devastatingly handsome exterior conceals a vile interior. His supervising animator, Andreas Deja, has recounted how at first he had some difficulty getting to grips with this: his natural inklination was to give Gaston something 더 많이 of the looks of a villain. Then it was put to him that it was crucial for the movie...

Walt 디즈니 Character 설명 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 사무용 겉옷, 전반적인 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"....
