Best lesson from a Disney movie
This is an underrated movie
This is a grossly underrated movie.
Can I take a minute to rant? Good. Cuz I’m gonna.
I FLOVE this movie. And I HATE all the stupid hatred it gets. For a long time the buzz was “finally a black princess yay!” and now everyone is like “Fuck this movie, first black princess and she spends the whole movie a frog.”
You know what? Fuck that. Because Ariel spent a good majority of the movie not talking. Mulan spent the majority of the move pretending to be a man. Aurora and Snow White? Asleep (Hardly in the movie at all). They’re all just plot devices, not designed to take away from the traits of the women.
And you know what else? Unlike some of the other princesses, Tiana is in control of her destiny every step of the way. When she turns into the frog does she lose hope and need rescuing? Hell naw. She busts Naveen over the head and gets the job done. She is consistently responsible and capable even after having her dreams crushed and turning into a freaking frog.
So don’t tell me that Tiana is “less than” just because she gets turned into a frog. She’s still one of the most hardworking, badass, and capable chicks in animated history and I love her like crazy cakes.
Also? She’s based on a real person. A real woman who is 91 and is still cooking in her kitchen. She’s still widely respected in the culinary community, she’s fed presidents, she’s had songs written about her and her restaurants. She’s 91, and she still wakes up every morning to run things, because she still believes in hard work and good food. And if you don’t think that’s truly fantastic, then you can just fuck right off.
What I loved about this movie most was it’s message. In lots of other Disney tales they mention ‘wishing upon a star’ and having your dreams come true. That’s magical and all, but the big problem with that was that simply wishing was not going to get you what you want. It’s hoping or praying without acting, and unfortunately, it doesn’t work that way in real life. Good things don’t just come to you if you only rely on hope alone and not do anything to achieve what you want or to make a change.
In the Frog Princess, they still keep that classic children’s idea of wishing on a star, but still try to be realistic by saying a wish is a dream, a motivational set goal, but you must help yourself to make it a reality. That’s what the dad pretty much said and it’s true, not just a fairytale phrase for the kids.
And in addition to that note, they also show what happens if you work too hard and kill off the magic perception of things that you had during childhood, as shown in Tiana’s case when she got annoyed with every mentioning of the star.
So yeah, it is an underrated movie.
So to the propaganda producing American media and those who repeat it, please just shut the hell up
Tomorrow is September 11th. If you see somebody being Islamophobic toward Muslims or non-Muslim Arabs and Sikhs, don’t stand by and do nothing. Shut that shit down!
At first I was just thinking, ‘tehe, that’s kind of funny, and all that special effects video editing was very beautifully done.’ Then when I saw the one with the budgie I just lost it for 5 minutes of silently convulsed laughter and tears, then every gif after that one just seemed so much funnier. XD It may not even be that funny, but I guess a day’s worth of laughter burst out at once.
this is my favourite version you cant stop me
Haha, yep. This is how musical numbers are probably like the actual world of a Disney film if it were like ours with no random music suddenly being heard in the mountains.
Just characters singing to themselves in the middle of nowhere.
