I submit the intro for Hunchback of Notre Dame beats Circle of Life raw.
Especially since the former doesn’t have flocks of pink birds that immediately make me think, “Sure, Disney, you weren’t influenced at all by Osamu Tezuka. Tell us another one.”
This movie was surprisingly hardcore for a Disney retelling of Victor Hugo’s really screwed up story.
It also did a ton of great stuff with God and religion and Catholicism that somehow managed to still be about people and not bring “Why Religion Sucks” into the whole thing, which is aces.
One thing that surprises me is how well the animation has aged. Strangely enough, it looked weird at the time; we weren’t really used to traditional animation blended with computer backgrounds. But now that pretty much everything is computer animated, you can really appreciate how effin’ gorgeous the Cathedral backgrounds are.
Also, God Help the Outcasts is the most honest song featured in a Disney movie. “Honest” meaning it doesn’t feel manufactured specifically to be played in a suburbanite van ferrying kids to McDonalds. It’s raw, open, and genuine.
(Needless to say, there is nothing suburban about Hellfire, ho ho ho. Will we ever again see a Disney villain essentially sing, “Help me Mary, I have an unholy erection?”)
No, no, no, no!

Disney Name Meme | A u d r e y
first letter → a favorite character: Aladdin
I love this movie but how does no one notice that Aladdin doesn’t actually seem to have anything more to him? Like, what is the more that is there? The fact that he’s not hungry for money and power?
Aladdin went hungry so that children could have at least something to eat. He saved them from being trampled. He was the diamond in the ruff that could enter the Cave of Wonders. He was surrounded by gold and jewels, things that could make his starvation and poverty go away in an instant, and he didn’t even consider taking anything but the lamp. Aladdin was willing to give up the girl of his dreams and a cushy life as a prince just to keep his promise to Genie and set him free.
It’s not that he wasn’t hungry for money and power, but that he valued his morals and friendship more than he valued a better life for himself.
I’d say he’s a lot more than just a street rat.
And that is why he is my favorite. Well said sheerdisneymagic
So after months and months of waiting and searching every Disney store near me, I finally got a Hans doll and well…
Someone needs to take Snapchat away from Hans.
All right, Blondie.
If the Frozen concept art ended the same in the movie
With a dreamy far-off look and her nose stuck in a book…
REAL LIFE DISNEY PRINCE TOM HIDDLESTON EXHIBIT
Always reblog the Real Life Disney Prince. Pay attention boys, this is how it’s done.
I’ve always liked Tom Hiddleston but this just made me fall in love with him
I’m not gonna lie, my eyes got a little blurry.
His parents should write a book about parenting, cuz I wanna know whether they hired a sorcerer to make sure their child comes out right.
