I pray to god this wasn’t supposed to be serious.
BEAUTY AND THE BEAST (ugly hero)
LILO AND STITCH (siblings)
There’s obviously more, like “The Little Mermaid” and her sisters or “Tarzan” where he was a gross ape-like man.
A lot of Disney pieces have won awards. Here’s a list http://www.disneyclips.com/newsinfo/awardnom.html
I love Frozen, but I get mad when someone uses it to BASH Disney’s past works.
I missed the part when I bashed the movie too btw.
I’m hoping that anon was a joke.
I am so sick of people saying Frozen is revolutionary when it’s clearly not. A good movie does not make something progressive. Frozen is good, but if you think for one second it’s as original as you think it is, then I’m sorry, but you’re wrong.
I love Frozen just as much as anyone, but I don’t tolerate shit like this.
I like the movie too, and I agree there are some progressive aspects, but my God, you can love something without thinking it’s absolutely perfect. Like, I love Marvel movies to death, but it’s not like I think they’re some kind of bastion of progressiveness.
Also, Anna is the strongest Disney girl ever? Are you forgetting that one girl who saved her country by going to war despite being in a culture that forbade women to fight? All to protect her father and forge her own identity?
Since you said Disney “girls”, congratulations, you have opened up the vast catalog of Disney heroines. Sargent Jean Calhoun from Wreck-It-Ralph, who leads her own troupe of male soldiers whilst battling PTSD. Tiana, who has dreams that are more than she can expect for her race, class and gender, but still believes in her ability to make it come true. Or even Cinderella, who deals with years of emotional abuse and still somehow maintains a positive attitude.
I’m not saying Anna’s weak, I’m just saying the club of strong women in Disney is not exactly a small one.
And then there’s Pocahontas, who dealt with racism and still followed her chosen path.
And Giselle (Enchanted), who realised what her dream was and left her original life for one in a new world.
And Nala, ever so under-appreciated Nala, fought off Scar (musical and outtakes), left the Pridelands to find help, returned with Simba and helped overthrow Scar and the hyenas and restore the kingdom.
And about Frozen being “disney’s greatest success” look at The Lion King (1994) 20 years ago it was released and topped the box office. If movie tickets then were the same price as current prices, The Lion King would have raked in more money than Frozen.
With all these new films (Frozen), the old classics are forgotten. Films from 1928, all the way to 2008 are forgotten and only newer ones are remembered. Show some appreciation for the films where the same amount, maybe even more effort is put in.
