everyone made fun of dreamworks. it hid in the shadows. it learned. it became aware. now it is strong and threatening and making films w ridiculously high quality animation and unique plots while disney is still jacking off to a movie it released almost a year ago.

i compiled some pics of dreamworks female characters who were introduced in the same years as disney female characters- rapunzel, anna, and honey lemon

its up to you to decide which company is more progressive when designing female characters who appear distinct from the company’s last female protagonist, even tho its sorta extremely obvious

So its pretty impossible to find the exact same angle in a screenshot but I just wanted try it out of curiosity. As soon as I overlapped them the nose and face-shape (chin and jaw) fit like a glove. Since Honey Lemon is squinting her eyes end a bit higher but other than that its pretty much the same model.

HOLY MOLY„„„„,this is a lot to take in„„


Truer words were never said.

okay, i’m starting to think this is Disney animation’s official style for 3D now. Like you know when something’s ‘disney’ with the big eyes, head and iconic proportions in a typical disney human figure, like the 2D animations. This is their continuation now…and honestly, i give up.

If that’s the way they wanna go, i can respect that. Just glad other animation companies has the balls to switch up and experiment 3D models out of their comfort zones…

i’m just glad they added diversity into this movie though! Kudos!

#…. #its what evs i’m done with comparing and complaining #guys…you gotta just let disney be #they clearly know what their doing *shurgs sacasticly* #animation

no no nononoonoo friend no we do not need to “let Disney be” and they do not “know what they are doing”.  What they do know is the cheap and lazy way to cash in shitty character remakes movie after movie with little to no respect for their audience.  This is not all just for you but for everyone trying to say people shouldn’t complain:

What people don’t seem to realize is that Disney has become the paragon of animation.  Even though there are far more talented and innovative and passionate corporations out there, Disney is always going to essentially be the embodiment of “animation” and it is a horrible horrible, thing now

They’ve ceased to make movies for the love of the craft, they make them to make money.  They treat their consumers like passive cash cows that will keep throwing money at them no matter how little they work on or care about the product they produce.  They are trivializing a craft that most film critics already think little of.  Do you remember what happened last year with the Oscars?  Frozen won solely because it was a Disney movie and the critics had not bothered to watch any of the other nominations, claiming they as professionals had “better things to do than watch kid’s movies”.  The work of so many talented artists and writers and animators and directors was completely and wholly overlooked because Disney’s shadow extends so obscenely far.  Even if you know nothing of the processes behind animation you can clearly see how little they cared about diversifying their main females models - they literally tilted her eyes up a bit and that is it.  The characters in Frozen were one male and one female model recolored and befreckled sometimes.  Human beings are all SO UNIQUE and why the fuck should we ignore that and just recycle the same barbie doll over and over?

Not to mention how many kids look up the Disney characters and what kind of message this is sending to girls: you’re only good enough if you have THIS LOOK.  If you look anything other than this - big eyes, small nose and mouth, pale, flawless skin, stick-figure smallness - you’re not “pretty”.  Boys in these movies have all sorts of faces and body types and unique traits and are never treated differently for it.  Freckles do not make a character’s appearance “flawed” and frankly it’s offensive that Disney thought that adding freckles as a physical flaw to ground Anna as a “realistic girl” is insulting to all girls with freckles.

Take this for example.  Look at some of the recent male characters from Disney lately:





and then compare that to the “diversity” of leading women lately:




There is little to no difference in the shapes of their bodies.  With character design, silhouettes are a good way to tell if your character is unique.  Seeing your character bald and naked and still being able to identify them is a sign of a good character.  Would anyone be able to tell these girls apart in either scenario?  No.

And is this anything new?  Hell no.  This very problem has been prevalent in Disney’s 2D movies for years.  But this is 2014.  We have learned so much about animation as a craft and a medium for storytelling and representation.  America’s major export is culture in the form of television and film.  Our movies and our TV shows are being seen all over our own country and all over the world.  We’re showing everyone what is the “best”.  And the “best” we can do is the same goddamn model for every female in every movie we make??  It’s pathetic.  Don’t spout any of that bullshit about “it’s too hard to design/animate diverse females” because that is the most bullshit excuse on the market.  Look at all the diverse males that have been made.  Females are not some magical other species.  We aren’t peacocks with vastly different gender forms.

If you can shrug and say “whatever I don’t care” then fine.  Enjoy being a passive consumer and go be dispassionate somewhere else.  But don’t bitch and moan when people who are passionate about their craft are righteously unsettled by the absolute lack of care Disney is putting into their work, work that is then heralded as the next best thing in animation every single time and shits all over the hard work of others who still care about animation.  Don’t try and then turn around and try to justify all of Disney’s “hard work”.  You, as a consumer, deserve better.  You deserve the respect of these people designing these characters and movies.  If you’re not mad about this then you don’t fully understand that Disney is making fun of you with this.  They don’t think you’re smart enough to notice or care.  They think you are so ignorant that you will blindly accept anything they dish out and make excuses to cover their tails.  So please don’t prove them right.  Get interested.  Get active.  Get upset.

Casual reminder that Nani was on her way to becoming a Professional Surfer before her parents died and she had to drop everything to look after Lilo.

I apologize, I don’t mean to deter from the heart breaking and yet heart warming message,

Nani has a poster of Mulan on her wall.

Disneyworld needs to make a rollercoaster based off of the ride Yzma and Kronk take to the lair. When the ride starts, Yzma’s voice yells “pull the lever, Kronk!” and the ride starts to move backwards so she yells “wrong lever!” and it shoots you forward.
