Disney~~

Journal Entry: Sat Jan 15, 2011, 5:42 PM
Heh, After twitter I honestly stopped getting into writing as much as I used to.
Maybe it's time for some writing.

Firstly.....as the title of this journal says, this is a Disney special  XD

On december I have watched 'Waking Sleeping beauty' www.wakingsleepingbeautymovie.… I was dying for the DVD release since the documentary wasn't going to be released here in Brazil.
And when it arrived....Damn! It became a really emotional documentary, specially because it was amazing to realized the internal dispute and problems were happening right under our noses and when the movies were out, all we could see was that magical feeling and think: "oh, it's Disney, there is nothing that can go wrong with it"  XD
Specially because I do remember the release of Lion King on the theaters and how I was always looking forward to watch any kind of material about it on TV (when there was no internet at all back then). And I do remember some of the press-interviews from Michael Eisner/Ron Disney and Jeffrey Katzenberg on TV and the thoughs of :"hey, Is this guy  the new Walt Disney?", which made the documentary even more explanatory about all their ego issues  @_@

It really build up a new view of all the talents that were born there.
Yeah, I know that nowadays Disney is not in it's best, but every company has it's ups and down. Personally I'm kinda sensing that Pixar is on it's way to it's downside with all their  '2' movies, but probably after that, they will regain some more strength.
It's all about renewal.  :)

Oh! And watching the documentary, I've got to know The Rescuer- Down Under, which I never knew existed  XD Judging by it's technical quality, it's AWESOME!!! Specially when you have Glen Keane as animation supervisor. But of course, story wise, it's not as attractive. But still, it was interesting to watch and see WHY the story wasn't taking off. SO, if you are interested in storytelling, it's a nice thing to watch and come to your own conclusions  :)

Please, watch the documentary! The sensation and emotional thrill of it can really be an eye-opener. And btw....the last minutes are priceless  :)

I love the docmentry and how they didn't favor anyone and just seemed to be "this is how it was." I was able to buy it yesterday and will not let it go. Rescures Down under was my first film I remember watching in the movie theater. Its a good movie.

Yeahh~~
it was sad that Disney couldn't do something huge out of that opportunity to come back with 2D animation.
But maybe some other year.... :)

I've definitely had Waking Sleeping Beauty on my to-watch list for some time. When I first heard about it, I knew I wanted to see it right away! And I've always been fascinated with the behind-the-scenes stuff at Disney. Knowing they had so much stacked against them for Little Mermaid and Aladdin (my two favorite films) makes me appreciate those two movies that much more.

The Rescuers Down Under will always be wonderful to me because of that sequence with Cody and Merahute(sp) just flying around. Simply stunning animation! <3 Haven't revisited it recently to notice its story problems so I'm kinda hesitant now to do so and ruin my favorable memories of it.

Yes, me too! I was insane when I heard about it. @_@
I guess no one actually knew how much conflict there was during the production of Lion King.
I just related it to a huge success, when actually there was a lot of turmoil emotionally.

Oh well, in terms of story it's not that bad XD it's just not something new. They used the same formula of the first movie and just changed the atmosphere. But it is still with the same essence of The Rescuers :)
For a time where they needed something new to the studio, The Rescuers was still in the 'old pattern'.

I think Disney is on the upswing again now that they've returned to their successful formula. Princess and the Frog was full of "Good Things to Come" and Tangled improved on that a lot - coupling a return of the 'classic Disney' style into a 3D animation setting. It's like they've finally hit on that formula for the new generation and now they're working to perfect it.

tiggerfactory Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2011
Actually, Princess and the frog was a failure in the theathers. It was the reson why they definitely closed their 2D studio and cancelled the title Snow Queen, which was supposed to be the next 2D animated movie to be released.
But I do agree the Tangled was the thing that made things right to Disney XD
And I hope they get better with their stories and return their magic :)

Really, see, I keep on seeing conflicting stats about how much it did actually Gross, and I know that on worldwide release, it sat at number 1 for a week or so. -shrugs- I guess in the new age world of 3D movies, no one wants to see 2D animation, which is kinda sad given how much I love 2D stuff.
Reply
:icontiggerfactory:
tiggerfactory Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2011
I believe many people would love to keep watching 2D animations, but I think that Disney just didn't make the story as much appealing to audience as they did in Tangled.

Too many useless songs, too many characters with few exploitation and many other things that don't work anymore nowadays :/

Too bad they couldn't deliever with Princess and the frog.
