That would be awesome, but considering that Frozen is (to my knowledge) a more explicit Disney tale instead of just ripping off Grimm or something, they probably won't go that way. That Mulan was heavily suggested as a homosexual (I don't think it was ever stated outright, but they put in all the suggestiveness to leave no doubt) is probably pushing the envelope for them.

And, if there is, it certainly won't be Icest. (Frozcest? I don't keep up with the kids these days.)

>Oricon announced on May 12 that the original soundtrack album for Walt Disney Animation Studios' 3DCG musical fantasy film Frozen, which was released in Japan on March 12, has sold 466,000 units in two months and has become the top-selling animation film soundtrack album in history. The previous record holder was the album for the 1978 anime film Farewell to Space Battleship Yamato, the second feature film for the Yamato franchise, which was released in August 1978 and sold 386,000 LPs at the time. The current third is "Symphony Galaxy Express 999" released in July 1979 with 382,000 LPs.

>The album took the top spot two weeks in a row in the Oricon weekly album sales ranking selling 166,000 units in the recent week. The number is the highest since the release, and more sales is expected in the coming weeks.

>In the most recent Japanese movie box office (May 10-11), Frozen held first place for the ninth-straight weekend. Since its opening on March 14, it has earned 17,078,292,150 yen (about US$164,400,000) with 13,501,594 tickets sales, and will definitely reach the record of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (17,300,000,000 yen/2002) by the end of this week.

Indeed. And it might have fucked them on merchandising deals, like didn't Chewbacca get crushed by a moon in one of the books? So if a movie took place after that, he wouldn't be in it, so no Chewie plushies or whatever. I guarantee they are doing the movies because of the metric fuck-ton of cash they will make from merchandise, not out of any love for the franchise.

They've been in Trademark stuff for a while with Warner Bros over Various pieces of the Wizard of Oz property. Its a very complex thing from the looks of it as to who as the rights to use what. As for outright purchasing of the whole thing. I'd say that if happening is behind the scenes just like their Marvel and LucasArts purchases. The old Walt Disney Magic of keeping the project quiet so nobody jacks the price or balks. I don't think its public but I wouldn't be surprised if they want it all.

Huh. I'm not surprised about Wicked having licensing issues, but the fact that there would be any issues with Wizard of Oz in general surprises me--the book is Public Domain. Sure, you might not be able to get away with Ruby Slippers (as opposed to the silver ones) or other things that originated in the movie version, but I didn't think anyone would be able to sue for a straight adaptation, or even a new adaptation in the vein of Wicked, as long as it WASN'T Wicked.

Except the film presents a Maleficent who never does anything evil and it takes a dump on the original protagonists of the 1959 film: The three good fairies.

Sleeping Beauty isn't about the princess and the prince, it's a conflict between Maleficent and the good fairies with the young couple as basically props to move their battle forward. Hell, the climax is basically the Good Fairies playing a game of Dragon's Lair using a real person. Phillip doesn't do anything except what the fairies point him towards or get him out from and never speaks in those last few minutes of the movie.

The names of the characters rubs me the wrong way, like they based them off of what they knew about anime from the time of Speed Racer or some shit. It's less offensive than the Great Ten which was made in the late 2000s and has no excuse for some of the shit it used, but shit, it was made in 1998, lots other series made more on-target parodies of Japanese media by then.

I read that post but it seriously downplays the degree to which character designs are reused by Ghibli.

Mei played Ponyo, the male protagonists are almost all played by the same actor, etc.

That storm scene in Ponyo made me exhausted just LOOKING at it.

I'm just pointing out what I see as a double standard among Internet Armchair Critics.

A few days ago I watched Frozen for the first time and outside of the sudden resolution of the main conflict, I thought it was a fine film. Nothing really made me laugh out loud, but I did smile at a couple of scenes. All the characters were fun--including Olaf, who had all the signs of being an annoying talking object. Even though the movie sticks to the Disney formula, it managed to subvert a few of 'em. The big one being the focus on family love over a romantic one. Looking at the art book scans spoiled the reveal of Han's true character, but way the movie has him mimic the personality of whoever he's talking to was well done. Nicely subtle.

Anybody suck it up enough to watch Fifty Shades? Word is the movie is actually kinda OK since bad prose was the cause of a lot of the original book's suckiness. And honestly from what I can tell the original work seems a lot tamer than the furor raised around it made it out to be. It's still a bad representation of BDSM but it's less The Turner Diaries for women's rights and just another low-quality erotic novel that inexplicably made it big.

The text itself is tame, but the subtext—that the book glorifies an emotionally abusive relationship, regardless of how much Ana consents to Christian’s sexual whims—is far more insidious. But that’s a discussion for /mtv/, I suppose.

Well, I didn't want to get all Primary School "everyone gets a gold star" about it, but my point was that all the nominees and even the leftovers that didn't get nominated all had something going for them quality-wise. Some were more commercial than others, but none of them felt like soulless cashgrabs, they all had heart.

That's why I don't mind BH6 getting the statue, even taking into account how much its win was down to it being the only cartoon the dumb-as-rocks Oscar voters were dragged by their kids to see last year: http://www.cartoonbrew.com/award-season-focus/proof-that-oscar-voters-are-clueless-about-animation-109456.html
>Voter #5: I only watch the ones that my kid wants to see, so I didn’t see Boxtrolls but I saw Big Hero 6 and I saw Dragon. We both connected to Big Hero 6 — I just found it to be more satisfying. The biggest snub for me was Chris Miller and Phil Lord not getting in for Lego. When a movie is that successful and culturally hits all the right chords and does that kind of box-office — for that movie not to be in over these two obscure freakin’ Chinese fuckin’ things that nobody ever freakin’ saw? That is my biggest bitch. Most people didn’t even know what they were! How does that happen? That, to me, is the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever seen.

POC is actually a useful term sometimes. It's perfectly valid when talking specifically about American racial issues, considering the US's history of explicitly colorist policies. But I hate what Tumblr's done to the term and how it tries to shoehorn this square peg into to round holes where the term doesn't make any sense. For example Latin American ethnic politics, where the idea of "race" is way different enough so a wealthy half-African might be considered "whiter" than a poor mixed person with more European background, or two full-blood siblings might be considered different races.

Or for discussions about East Asia where discussions of POC are completely irrelevant because everybody already qualifies as one, and that never stopped a lot of the horrible racism that goes on there. Or hell, a lot of talk about Tumblr's concept of "privilege" in general, considering Chinese culture is often considered "privileged" in a lot of countries yet the actual Chinese people living there face a lot of discrimination.

Tangled is getting an animated series.

http://blogs.disney.com/insider/2015/06/03/what-makes-the-tangled-animated-series-so-special/

>But what makes the Tangled series so special is the amount of talent that they’ve retained from the original feature film. This new series will feature Mandy Moore and Zachary Levi reprising their roles of Rapunzel and Flynn Rider (nee Eugene) from the movie and showcase new songs from Academy Award-winning composer Alan Menken and lyricist Glenn Slater, who were responsible for all of those catchy tunes in the original film. Clare Keane, daughter of Disney Legend Glen Keane (who at one point was the director on a very different version of the film and who later served as an animation supervisor), consulted on the film. They’re really getting the band back together. This is roughly the equivalent of snagging Robin Williams for the Aladdin television series.

Nope, it's been described as a love story between Woody and Bo Peep. I imagine it's a prequel since Bo Peep is missing in TS3.

>the criticisms of Maui as a comedic character
So, kind of like the guys in India who got mad at Clone High over Gandhi or at SMT for making Krishna a villain in one of the games, even though almost all gods in that game are evil/monstrous?
Those people are usually on the nationalistic side and not worth listening to anyway. Kinda like the vocal minority of Japanese people who get offended by outside media criticizing Hirohito and Tojo, or American rednecks pissy over Hamilton being "disrespectful" to the Founding Fathers.

And considering that many people in the film are Native Hawaiian or Samoan or Polynesian. If something was off then they'd voice a concern about it.

Also Maui is a trickster god, course he's going to have a humorous nature in the film.

People need to read more before jumping to the "defense" of something they don't know anything about.

Ignorance is not an excuse to be offended.

I just find the hand-wringing from conservative nerds complaining about "political correctness gone mad" to be exhausting, especially when the stuff they're complaining about is just people talking about shit they don't like on the internet. As though those people shouldn't be allowed to talk about how they don't like something.

"I'm offended" and "this is offensive" are not the same thing. Many people who complain about things being offensive need to learn that fact, but so do a lot of people who complain about "outrage culture." And becoming outraged about outrage doesn't do anything to fight outrage culture, it just encourages it and makes it more hilariously hypocritical.

I'm the one you're responding to and you got it all wrong. I never said they didn't have the right to complain like you so kindly strawmanned me. My point isn't that the complaints posted in the link sound like political correctness but the opposite. People offended at a heroic portrayal of MUH MAUI for being goofy because it isn't the portrayal they grew up with sound like the same kind of people who get butthurt over Captain America being gay, Hamilton having a POC cast, or turning Jesus into a "Commie" skateboarder.

Aka chances are they come from the traditionalist/socially conservative wing of Pacific Islander society. Course they might not actually be. Maybe it turns out Pacific Islander religion really does have a hard rule like Islam on banning pictures of Mohammed, and the article isn't 100% clear on who's saying what, but otherwise it reminds me of how ultra-nationalists in other countries freak out when foreigners adapt their culture "wrong".

They can complain all they want but it's possible they're the last people progressives should be listening to but often end up doing because they didn't look up the regional politics hard enough. Like the people in India who freaked out over MUH GANDHI AND MUH KRISHNA are generally the same people promoting anti-Muslim hysteria and trying to get English textbooks to erase any mention of castes or sati because "racism". FFS that very article mentions other native Hawaiians are piping up to the defense of this movie so it's not something actual conservatives need to freak out over either.

It's 2017, and girls kicking ass physically has been a major trope in TV and movies since at least the 70's. Certainly since the days of Buffy the Vampire Slayer I don't know if you can call it so much "progressive" as "status quo" these days.

Progressive would be making her a lesbian or trans or some shit.

Disney television series, not a Disney movie. As long as the writing is good, passable animation is fine in my books. And plus, it's a preview. I don't know the workflow of western cartoons but maybe it's just the earliest complete parts they could show. Or maybe they aren't in the groove of making it. Only time can tell.

I completely agree, but it's not a good comparison to make.

Independent hobbyist animation is a completely different ballgame, especially in this decade. They're often much shorter, don't require an entire series to be made, and lack deadlines. Plus, professional televised animation tends to lack the passion of hobbyist animation. A passionate artist will go back and fix mistakes, for art's sake. A professional animator often has deadlines up their ass, and a preset, economical end result they are told to make. Artistic flair will be inconsistent with the rest of the animation, and we can't have that!

And if they aren't half-dead machines, they get fired.
