, I wanted to make my own artikel about favorit things from DP films. Narrowing it all down was really hard for me so I decided to combine things into groupings so I could give secara keseluruhan, keseluruhan things from the DP films. I hope anda guys enjoy! 10. Animal Friends/Sidekicks:
I always thought that the DPs having animal friends was the cutest idea. I like the "unrealistic" elements of fairy tales because they're not supposed to be real, that's why they are "fairy tales". I always liked the idea of animal friends helping cook, clean, sew, etc. I also like the symbolism that the Princesses were so pure and untainted, even binatang would feel the need to take care of them and do their part in rescue missions, etc. I also always liked the idea of talking to binatang atau having specific pets that aren't possible in real life (looking at you, Rajah). 9. Landscapes & Colors:
Whether it's an imaginary place like Atlantica atau a real place like Virginia before colonization etc; Whether it's under the ocean, looking out at rolling hills atau even running water in some form; I have always found the landscape "shots" from DP films to be very beautiful. The use of warna is usually very artistic and detailed. There is also usually a fantastic score in the background that makes what would already be unforgettable scenes, that much lebih memorable. 8. Balance & Beauty in Relationships:
Especially in a modern American society when relationships and true cinta aren't valued the way they used to be, I really cinta the way some couples in DP films are shown. They tampil the complimentary balance of femininity and masculinity as well as the beauty of being in cinta and the change it can have on a person. 7. Splendor & Wonder of Magic:
Again, most of these DP films are based on fairy tales so they have elements of magic. I have always loved the way they portrayed fun magic, especially in the older films. I used to think how neat it would be to use magic to help cook, clean, sew, etc. as in Sleeping Beauty's "Magical House Cleaning" scene.
I have also dreamed of flying on a "Magic Carpet Ride". (Still can't believe that's never been made into a legit ride at Disneyland since the motion and scenery are already given!)
I also cinta the splendor of magical transformations that take place when a "magical curse is broken". disney knows how to make magic feel special! 6. Family Friendly Humor:
I cinta family-friendly humor. I cinta little "inside" jokes to the audience (i.e. Scuttle's looking in the wrong side of the telescope and when he pulls it away, Ariel goes from being far away to in front of his face and he says "Whoa, what a swim!") I cinta "punny"/play-on-words jokes (i.e. Sebastian saying "Ariel, you're under a lot of pressure down here
" atau Mushu saying "You've never seen a black and white before?" referring to the Panda Bear). I cinta references, especially in disney about other disney films (i.e. Louis as Madam Mim from Sword in the Stone). I also especially cinta set-up jokes that require paying attention to the film (i.e. Most Frozen/Olaf jokes). I really cinta innocent, public-appropriate humor, that disney does a great job at doing and incorporating in most of their films. (In case anda were wondering, yes I absolutely cinta the Jungle Cruise at disney for their jokes!) 5. Musical Score & Songs:
As anda might know oleh now, I absolutely adore Disney's musik as it makes their films etc. much lebih memorable to me. I cinta hearing the musik at Disneyland and I like listening to it on my free time every now and then. disney has been fortunate with very talented musical teams, my favorit being Alan Menken & Howard Ashman (RIP). I cinta the scores a little lebih than the songs but I think disney is super talented when it comes to making memorable tunes. 4. Romantic Waltz/Dance Sequences:
Not only are these scenes all done so beautifully, but (back to) the score is usually just gorgeous. The animasi with the "Waltz" sequences usually tend to be top-notch, especially with turns and lifts. I cinta these scenes because they are done so well that I feel like I'm sweeping across the floor with the couple. Just absolutely stunning scenes. (Plus, I cinta ballet and contemporary styles.) 3. Honest Villains:
I live in America where there is a "No Judge" culture trend going on. This trend has managed to do far lebih harm than good in my life as it gives bad people outs and excuses to never be reprimanded for their actions atau pay consequences. In addition, a lack of honesty has resulted about bad people because words that might be considered "judging" are removed from descriptions and warnings. I cinta that (especially classic) disney shows the true things in villains that truly exist but aren't often mentioned. Since I grew up knowing people who were very similar to the villains (without magical powers and pursuit of murder) it is refreshing to have one honest sumber about the reality of greed, jealousy, vanity and sociopathic tendencies. Additionally, I like how all of the original DPs had female villains since it is lebih likely that women will find an enemy in other women than men. (Aside from Shan Yu, I also think the females make all of the best DP villains.) 2. Power of True Love:
The concept of "True Love" used to be something that was admired and many people strived for. Then society told people that being in cinta made them lose their "independence" etc. and the "magic" of cinta has been forgotten. I cinta how the DP films remind us that True cinta is the greatest gift on Earth. Unfortunately today, I see true cinta being completely underrated atau compared to lust atau "puppy love". I cinta how disney came up with the concept of "True Love's Kiss" breaking "Magic Curses" and I think it was the single best addition to fairy tales in a long time. I also cinta how disney showed, especially in older days, how a great man could rescue a great woman so she didn't have to live a life of abuse atau any false pretenses. I also cinta how they showed that cinta brings out the best in both partners and allows them to overcome lebih obstacles together than they could have alone. Furthermore, I cinta the distinction between one's past/present family (parents & siblings) and their present/future family (marital spouse & kids) and the transition in life that follows that. In a lot of ways, it is like the ultimate "coming of age" tale for young women. 1. Virtuous Characters:
Not entirely lost and not entirely forgotten. Contrary to populer belief (especially in America), virtuous people do still exist in life. They're just not forcing their way into the spotlight. Regardless of how seemingly "unrealistic" atau "perfect" these characters are, they represent the "uncommon" good that still exists. The darkness is always trying to snuff out the light which is why people like to pretend that virtuous people don't exist atau shouldn't be looked up to. That is also why The Evil Queen, Lady Tremaine & Maleficent wanted to destroy Snow White, cinderella & Aurora so badly. They were the opposites of the villains, everything the villains were not and wish they could be. There used to be a recurring representation/theme of Good vs. Evil and the DPs vs. their villains was a part of that. DPs were the good women who fought against the evil that tried so hard to corrupt them. I am so thankful that characters like this have been made so that we have reminders of what "perfect" should look like. If ever I reach a hari where I have stopped striving to reach this level of perfection, I know I have become vain and prideful atau simply just diberikan up. I cinta the inspiration that can only come from pure and innocent role model that are not corrupt. Furthermore, it wasn't just the princesses who were representative of "all things good" in females but the "Prince Charmings" were representative of all things good in males, too. People can say that these stories are harmful to children but I would have to disagree 100% from personal experience. I loved these film growing up, I still do, and I have met my very own "Prince Charming". On the contrary of the ridiculous claim, these films were far lebih beneficial to my childhood then they ever could've been harmful. Lastly, these "virtuous" values are not outdated at all. Quite oppositely, they are timeless values that are even lebih treasured today oleh other virtuous people, especially with the increasing rarity. I don't believe there's been a lebih crucial time to bring back lebih "virtuous" characters than now to remind people why these virtues are timeless.
