    Elimination. Lack of education.

    Wow, that was much more depressing than I thought it would be!

    I haven't actually read any of these, but this is what I heard about the original stories: in Snow White to be the fairest in the land the Wicked Witch cuts off and wears Snow's face over her own face; in Sleeping Beauty the prince rapes her to wake her up; at the end of Pocahontas the white men kill all of the native americans and then take all of their land; Dumbo gets his ears chopped off so he can't fly, then, later, after living a horribly miserable life in circus captivity, poachers kill him for his tusks; Peter Pan actually kidnaps Wendy and the boys against their will, then he sends them all to be slaughtered at the hands of full grown pirates, Peter can't even remember why he's fighting Hook, and doesn't seem to actively care; in Bambi, his father, realizing that Bambi represents a threat to his crown, challenges him to a duel, which Bambi wins, and is then forced to kill his own father; at the end of Alice in Wonderland she wakes up in a psychiatric hospital because it turns out her father's friend has been drugging and raping her; after Simba defeats Scar, he and the rest of the pride devour the hyenas for sustenance. There are more, I'm sure, but that's just what I heard.

    I like the idea of Simba eating the hyenas that ate Scar.

    The only story I read that inspired a Disney movie was Rapunzel, and yeah, I actually loved the changes made there. At this point it's just best to accept that any changes that happen is just a Disney thing.

    Exceeeeeept maybe for Big Hero 6, what with that one being the most recent source material for a Disney movie, and a Marvel comic book at that.

    I took a gander at the cut tracks from the Frozen soundtrack and...yeah, good thing these weren't in there. If Frozen ended up following the original screenplay, I don't think I would've liked it as much as I do.

    This is definitely my favorite part of the movie. It was very moving and upbeat song about declaring freedom. I also found it very touching that Elsa had hid her powers her entire life and could still learn to embrace them.

    I used to watch Enchanted Christmas every year during the Christmas holidays until I ditched my DTV VHS tapes.

    Speaking of the DTV sequels, if they had been given more effort and put out by the main studio instead of DisneyToons from the start, no matter if they were included in the canon or not, could they have been more accepted and not smeared the Disney brand so much?

    Disney movies are good for only one thing. They dumb down classic stories or adapt classic stories into a dumbed down version for children or adults with drooling problems.

    lol. I would also highly recommend people actually read the Snow Queen (the one that Frozen is based on)....it's an incredibly beautiful story that's been butchered to death.

    Aren't all Hans Christian Anderson stories brutally depressing though?

    It was one I resisted seeing for a while as I didn't think the trailer was very interesting, but once I finally did I wished I hadn't waited. I hadn't enjoyed a Disney movie that much in a long time, still haven't really (I haven't seen Frozen yet). Granted, I saw it in a friends home 3D theater, so I still got the whole experience with being able to pause and not have to deal with other people. ;)


    Someone was talking DTV Disney, Lion King 1 1/2 was fantastic was one of those that was absolutely fantastic! The Lion King is one of my favorite Disney movies and that comes in close to it, IMO.

    Tangled is an awesome movie. My daughter watches it all the time and knows all the words to each song. That said, I've since had to get the soundtrack so she can listen (and sing) to it every time we're driving somewhere.

    Since Star Trek Insurrection is on cable rotation this month for some reason: that moment when you realize that Picard's love interest in that crappy Trek film is Mother Goethals...

    So are the Brothers Grimm. Cinderella's evil stepsisters get their eyes gouged out by birds at Cinderella's wedding, and then there's Ariel being told that she'll die if the Prince doesn't fall in love with her, oh and did I mention that she's told that she'll turn back into mermaid if she murders the Prince.

    So by your definition, all of us who enjoy these films are either children or drooling adults?

    You sure must be the life of the party.

    No it's only saved if all of the children of the world don't weep or do weep, I don't exactly remember. Either way, she screwed.
