I just love the Jungle Book. Classic animation, amazing timeless story and fun sing-a-long music just makes it my top fav of all time. The Little Mermaid and Aladdin are also up there on the list. The characters in those movies are just so irresistable! Flounder, Sebastian, Genie and Iago will always be in my memories smile

I mean they're going to make a Direct-to-DVD spinoff of Cars called Planes. Really?
Link to official word of this please. I've not seen/heard this. That and Pixar's NEVER released a direct-to-DVD movie as far as I know.

@Xanfor: You slay me with your dry humor.
@hobbitboy: Same here. I'm not gonna go in expecting rainbows and unicorns and delicious cake with delectable frosting atop it. At best I'm going in expecting medicore.

Pixar did indeed never a direct-to-dvd movie... but I found: http://www.slashfilm.com/planes-disneytoon-studios-cars-spinoff/

Which says it's not a Pixar movie, but made by Disney.

Disney is squeezing every drop of money out of Pixar that they can. What else is new?

That being said, it might not be all that bad. Really.

Maybe.

Well after re watching Beauty and the Beast I was in the mood for some Disney films that I had not seen.  I had prevously ignored Meet the Robinsons because I thought I looked terrible....and I should have trusted my instincts.

I really do not knwo why this movie rubbed me up the wrong way, maybe because everything about it felt so forced and it did feel like they were trying too hard to emulate their more succesful devision of Pixar.

I might give Tangled a go as The Princess and the Frog was enjoyable enough, it would just be nice if Disney could recapture that golden period again.

Disney won't have anything to do with period (golden or any colour) don't forget they still haven't released Only Yesterday in the US despite having the rights to it evil laugh

It was nice with them singing in the background, then they burst into full duet and as much as I love Disney, all I could think was "man this is cheesy."

Both of them joining together served the narrative purpose of unifying their perceptions as mutual verbal declaration. Without this, their entire relationship would have consisted of merely a few romantic glances, and a few thoughts that were never shared between the two of them before the entire abandonment aspect of the story was played in for drama.

Also, I love cheese, but that's neither here nor there. shifty

Tangled did everything right that The Princess and the Frog tried to do but failed. Namely they are not fucking frogs for 96% of the movie. I just watched TP&TF a few weeks ago with my boyfriend, and it just did not work for me. Granted I loved the New Orleans theme and the villain was freaking awesome, I wish they had explored that instead of what we got. And it bothers me that this movie was promoted to have the first African American princess yet for a giant hunk of the movie she's a green frog. The magic and logic was lost on me too, I mean I guess it made sense but really farfetched. I loved how all the white characters were horribly stereotyped -unattractive and stupid white best friend, John Goodman being John Goodman in the 1920s, rude oppressive whites, the whole nine yards-. And god almighty did I hate that stupid cajon firefly. I have never been so happy to see a character get killed in a Disney movie -by the way, he looked really good for being squished-.

Bottom line: Watch Tangled instead. That movie is awesome, there are not 1843 characters, it's much more basic and does well because of that. The Princess and the Frog fails in comparison.

Watched Tangled and did enjoy it alot more than the Princess and the Frog, although the songs are still not quite to the level they used to be but that might be rose tinted googles  (or roses filled head phones, which ever is more appropriate).

Tangled defintly had more charm than previous efforts and the computer animation was not where near as ugly as Meet The Robinsons.  So good call everybody.

I watched Bolt not too long ago as well as a large portion of my Disney/Pixar fare that I have on DVD. I was far too lazy to pull out my VHS tapes and play them on my VCR. Bolt was decent, and Miley Cyrus had a small role which was the best choice they could've made EVER. She would've entirely killed the film had she been there for most of it since her voice is so annoying. As it stood it was a typical action flick for families/kids and didn't stand out from the crowd. If you bother to use your brain to deduce the plot (which isn't worth doing) you'll most likely guess majority if not ALL of the plot before it happens. I doubt I'd watch it again any time soon.


@Spacedal: Maybe that explanation of yours lends itself to why I wasn't a fan of Princess & the Frog. None of it worked for me, and while watching I had this looming sense in the back of my mind that I was thinking racistly while viewing it or something. Perhaps it was due to the pretty stereotyped characters I felt that way about this film. I get that it was set in a time when that kinda thing was present, I do, but I digress. I wasn't feeling it. I'd rather endure Sword and the Stone or Black Cauldron before watching P&tF again. Thing is, John Lassiter was part of the project. He's never failed Pixar but I feel that this film was a letdown by comparison. Time will tell if he and his team can pull of Brave, the first fairytale from Pixar. I think it's a damn shame Tangled became CG because P&tF "bombed" at the box office by Disney standards. At one time it was going to be 2D as well, or so the rumors go. Oh well, Tangled is still a good film.

I still adore this movie far more than I should at the ripe old age of past-a-teenager. But this is why I love this world, it's perfectly okay to love Disney big grin

Yes there is a feeling of racism done in a not very subtle way. Speaking of racism, I kept wondering who was doing the Prince's voice because it sounded so fake. Turns out he's Brazillian and that is his speaking voice. I too would have liked to have seen Tangled in 2D, but that doesn't make me like the movie any less. That was the best thing P&TF had going for it, and that's something that I'm sad to see less and less of. I love animation, it's a wonderful thing but 3D and computer technology ruins it. The best example from P&TF is anything that had to do with the witchcraft/voodoo monsters and their whole world, make a movie about that and I would totally watch it.

This thread needs more Flynn Rider (yeah his name is Eugene, but he's Flynn to me!)

Given that hair is the hardest thing to render using CG, the fact that they decided to use CG to do a movie entirely about hair is astounding. And honestly, the scene with the lanterns wouldn't have been as spectacular if it were hand-drawn. Personally, I think they made the right call.

Oh, and Rapunzel is finally going to be accepted as a Disney Princess in 2012.

And we're going to see a short where she and Eugene get married. big grin

*froths at the mouth* Habyhsibphspgknsdopgsdg~! *fangirl attack*

I'm not saying Tangled was horrid in 3D (one of my favorite films actually) but I could dream that it had a shot for being made in 2D right? Right?!?! Also, I figured she was already an official princess with how much they've been marketing her and how she's established in the parks. *coughtunlikeKidafromAtlantiscough* Seriously, they gave Rapunzel ALL the merch. There is no Flynn love. There's a doll of him from each Disney and Mattel and I saw ONE pin with him on it but in a set with three Rapunzel ones. I didn't feel like blowing $30 for one kinda ok-ish pin. You'd think they'd have more since the film's name was changed to try and bring in a male audience.

@Spacedal: My friends and I kinda had this little inside joke about Naveen because he was played by a guy who wasn't even African American, or if he was, he wasn't fully African American so the voice was so cheesy and out of place. Also you didn't squee loud enough or long enough.

I hit up Disneyland and caught a glimpse of Flynn. He was at the Tangled meet-and-greet site and despite my serious love of him I wasn't gonna wait fifty minutes to get like... a minute with him. That and Rapunzel was with him so my ideas for stealing him away wouldn't have worked. Curses.

Thank you! I have been saying that for years but Eilonwy has gotten no credit for being a Disney Princess. My theory has always been because she was a character from a famous book it would be like calling Jim Hawkins a Disney Prince even though he's an already established literary character. I know my logic doesn't make sense because of all the fairytales that Disney has made based of other literary characters like Peter Pan, but you don't see Wendy Darling credited as a princess either. (Also from what I understand The Black Cauldron was a box office bomb).

The Black Cauldron was actually a decent film. It was a shocking departure from usual form for Disney though, which is probably why it failed so dismally on a commercial basis. I highly recommend watching it.

I remember watching it as a wee lass, I particularly remember the weird dog creature and how obnoxious he was. I think I liked it, and I do remember it being much different from the traditional Disney movie. Hark! I should just have a Disney marathon, that's what I'll do this summer.

They wrote a new program so they could get the hair exactly the way they wanted it. That's dedication right thurr. I agree with the scene with the lanterns, but the thing that continues to astound me is the level of detail in the characters outfits. Wear and tear on Flynn's leather jacket thinger? Exceptional.

I just watched "Beauty and the Beast," which gives me the warm-and-fuzzies whenever I see it. For all that talk of Disney magic--and despite how much I love everything to come out of their Renaissance--this is probably the only film in their canon to which I can unironically apply the term "delightful." I mean, seriously: I know it's been said a lot, but this movie is a freaking delight.

Yeah, I'm eloquent. It's a side-effect of those warm-and-fuzzies.
