Character تفصیل of Ursula from "The Little Mermaid" (1989)

The Emmy-winning Pat Carroll, who voiced the part of the sea-witch (spelt with a b), is a very experienced actress on both stage and screen. Carroll envisioned the role as "part Shakespearean actress, with all the flair, flamboyance and theatricality, and part used-car salesman with a touch of con artist". She deliberately deepend her own voice, especially for the singing (she's naturally a contralto); in an interview with Lou Cedrone...

Character تفصیل of Max from "The Little Mermaid" (1989)

Max is Eric's big, shaggy, ebullient, flobby-eared Old English Sheepdog; as a member of that species he obviously bears quite a strong physical resemblance to the Colonel in One Hundred and One Dalmatians, but Max has no pretensions to military competence: he is everybody's fun-loving, bouncy darling.
Well, not everybody's. He alone of the land-based characters immediately recognizes Vanessa as a wrong'un, and snarls at her as ferociously as his roly-poly appearance will permit. Naturally - having adored Ariel on sight - he joins in soon afterwards with the efforts of the marine animals to disrupt the marriage ceremony.

Walt Disney Character تفصیل of Jafar from "Aladdin" (1993)

The evil vizier is represented as a caricature villain - he has a long thin face, a curly black wisp of beard, two great spikes of something sticking out from shoulders of his customary garb, an unpleasant habit of hypnotizing people, a sinister voice, and very much more. However, the exaggeration works: the characterization is such that we early become fully aware of his evil, and we cheer when he gets his deserved comeuppance. Much...

Roger Ebert: **** (4 Stars)

Was there ever a scarier, مزید exciting animated feature than "Pinocchio"? I doubt it - at least not if آپ were between the ages of 5 and 10 when آپ saw it, and could identify with its blockheaded little hero. Pinocchio, who is not the brightest char acter in the history of cartoons, wants only to be a good little boy, but he's trapped سے طرف کی scoundrels who want to use him as a sideshow attraction, and then he's kidnapped and sent to an island where he will be turned into a donkey and put to work in the salt mines all دن long.

I remember seeing "Pinocchio" for the first...

 Roger Ebert's Review of Walt Disney's "Hercules" (1997)
Roger Ebert's Review of Walt Disney's "Hercules" (1997)
Roger Ebert: ***½ (3 and a half Stars)

The wonder is that it took Disney so long to get to the gods of Greek mythology. ``Hercules'' jumps into the ancient legends feet-first, cheerfully tossing out what won't fit and combining what's left into a new look and a lighthearted style.

Starting with a Day-Glo Olympian city in the clouds, and using characters based on the drawing style of the British illustrator Gerald Scarfe, this new animated feature has something old (mythology), something new (a Pegasus equipped with helicopter blades), something borrowed (a gospel singing group) and something...

Character تفصیل of Maid Marian from "Robin Hood" (1973)

Maid Marian, niece to King Richard, plays a very small role in the movie, and after she and Robin have plighted their troth she seems to be largely forgotten about. Her function is essentially to provide a motive for Robin to attend the archery tournament and thereby set things up for one of the movie's major sequences. What is intriguing, however, is that the animators have succeded in making a vixen ہے, وساان have the screen presence of an attractive woman. In part this must be due to her voice, supplied سے طرف کی Monica Evans, but this cannot be a total explanation. One must simply applaud the skill of the Disney animators.

Although she is the central character of the movie, the part of Princess Aurora/Briar Rose is in fact a very small one - smaller, for example, than that of Prince Phillip (in marked contrast with Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs whose Prince hardly made an appearance, but whose heroine occupied a fair deal of screen-time). In fact, her functions in the movie are three: (a) to be cursed; (b) to meet and fall in love with Phillip; and (c) to prick her finger and fall into a death-like sleep. Over (a)...

Walt Disney Character تفصیل of Lady Tremaine from "Cinderella" (1950)

Although she porssesses no known magical powers, it is hard to no see Cinderella's wicked stepmother, Lady Tremaine as anything other than a witch, the counterpart of the Evil Stepmother in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs - indeed, she even has a familiar, in the shape of the cat Lucifer. Curiously, she was principally animated سے طرف کی Frank Thomas, much better known for his soft and sentimental scenes and characters, such as...

Character تفصیل of Prince Phillip and Samson from "Sleeping Beauty" (1959)

The handsome Prince in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs was nothing مزید than a cipher - it was not thought necessary even to name him. Prince Charming in Cinderella was مزید than just a plot device, but nevertheless still had only a minor part. For the third in their trio of great fairy stories, however, Disney gave the handsome Prince a far meatier role, and consequently his character had to be portrayed in مزید detail....

Character تفصیل of Belle from "Beauty and the Beast" (1991)

It was decided early that the movie's heroine should display a lot مزید spirit than the somewhat passive virtue of the character in the original fairy tale. The liveaction performance for the animators' reference was supplied سے طرف کی Sherri Stoner, the actress who had not long before served the same funtion so very excellently for The Little Mermaid's Ariel, another feisty female part. Belle's part was spoken and sung سے طرف کی Paige O'Hara, a...

Prince Eric

It is a recurring theme of this book that Disney's glamorous princes tend on the whole to be cyphers, and Eric (voiced سے طرف کی Christopher Daniel Barnes, then the US national teenage spokesperson for the enviromental organization Greenpeace) is no exeption. The habit of using purely symbolic characters in the princely role is not normally a particularly noticeable one in the other features; it is only later that we realize that, whereas we have the feeling we've met the other principal characters, the...

Hey, guys! I’m finally back with another review of a classic Disney movie! This week, I’m watching Disney’s سیکنڈ animated feature, Pinocchio, for the first time!
What were my Feelings about the Movie before Seeing it?: As I have mentioned in my intro, I have never seen the entirety of Pinocchio before writing this review. However, I am aware that this film is one of the two animated Disney فلمیں that has a 100% on Rotten Tomatoes and, this year, is turning eighty, which is another crazy thing to think about during this already unpredictable year. Now that I have watched this classic,...

Walt Disney's "The Lion King"
With the stunning success of "The Lion King" this weekend, Disney might re-release other classics in 3D, its distribution chief told TheWrap Sunday.

"It's probably one of the first things we're going to be having a conversation about اگلے week," studio distribution chief Dave Hollis said. "When آپ look at our library, there are some very special gems as it were, and for those that transcend time -- and a lot of them do ... to bring them through 3D is a great opportunity."

He stressed that there are no plans yet. But, he said, "The Lion King" success "gives a lot of hope to the possibilities...

Hey, guys! Happy beginning of Autumn! Anyway, a few weeks ago, I decided that I would maybe think about rewatching Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs for the first time in nearly five years. After thinking about it a little مزید thought, I decided, why not ALL the Disney movies? Okay, not all of them because with online school, play practice, reading, baking, and cooking, I probably don't have time for that. But for those of آپ who are...

Walt Disney Character تفصیل of Iago from "Aladdin" (1992)

Jafar's sidekick is an irascible parrot, who - unusually for the birds - has teeth, and a lot of them at that. Hilariously voiced سے طرف کی Gilbert Gottfried at a general level of about one hundred decibles, Iago is as malicious as his master (although his character changed for The Return of Jafar). As is customary in the animated features, he is constantly being subjected to indignities سے طرف کی the one he serves - at one memorable stage he is deliberately trapped سے طرف کی Jafar in a sliding door - yet in this instance the slave is wiser than the master, for it is Iago who has the idea that Jafar's tactic to attain the sultanate should be through marrying Jasmine.

Following weak box office performances for re-releases of "Monsters, Inc.," "Finding Nemo" and "Beauty and the Beast" in 3-D, Walt Disney Studios has canceled plans for a 3-D "The Little Mermaid" in September.

The underwater animated hit from 1989 was the fourth and final 3-D re-release for which Disney announced plans in late 2011 after "The Lion King" proved a surprise hit in the format, grossing nearly $100 million in the U.S. and Canada.

But "The Lion King" turned out to be an anomaly, as the three follow-ups grossed far less. "Beauty and the Beast"...

Character تفصیل of Princess Ariel from "The Little Mermaid" (1989)

Tawny-haired Ariel was one of the most immediately مقبول animated heroines to emerge from the Disney stable for a very long time - indeed, it's hard to remember any at all that might match her in this respect. It is easy enough to explain away this phenomenal success in terms of sexual allure, of which she has plenty, yet that doesn't really get to the دل of the matter, for in many ways she is also a very childlike character....

PrueFever aka Jørgen with his idol, Prue Halliwell aka Shannen Doherty.
Life has never been easy for PrueFever aka Jørgen Jørgensen (J.J. for short). When his mom started drinking alcohol a few weeks after his birth, his father did the same thing a couple of years later, which led to Social Service removing him and his sisters from ہوم and placed them in different Foster Homes in Denmark. Then in 1997 J.J. was diagnosed with Aspergers Syndrome, although on the mild end of the ASD spectrum. Then in 2007 his mother died and in 2008 his father was killed. And yet, when Fanpop met up with him in Planet Hollywood in London, it was a fresh, smiling young man we met....

Walt Disney Character تفصیل of Thomas from "Pocahontas" (1995)

A callow youth, Thomas epitomizes the changing mood of the settlers. When we first see him he is kissing his mother goodbye on the dock in London - they may never see each other again. Within an instant, however, he is enthusiatic about the challenge of the voyage and سے طرف کی the prospect of serving with the great "savage" slayer John Smith. Later Smith saves his life as, during the storm at sea, Thomas very courageously attempts to...

Walt Disney Character تفصیل of Baloo from "The Jungle Book" (1967)

It had been originally planned that Baloo should have no مزید than a cameo role, but the animators (Ollie Johnston was largely responsible for him) found Phill Harris's vocalization fascinating to work with and so in due course Baloo became one of the movie's major stars. Indeed, in terms of popularity and screen presence, he is the main سٹار, ستارہ of The Jungle Book, eclipsing even Bagheera, whose role is much مزید fundamental to...
