Coming in 2018 is Disney’s next fairy tale mythology animated feature film, set amongst the South Pacific islands, rendered in a ‘painterly-style CGI’ (think the Paperman short): and y’all are going to LOVE IT:
The main character will be Moana Waialiki, a sea voyaging enthusiast, and the only daughter of a chief in a long line of navigators. When her family needs her help, she sets off on an epic journey. The film will also include demi-gods and spirits taken from real mythology.
And if people still make a fuss about Disney not being diverse enough, I will literally go crazy
"make a fuss"? thank you for trivializing the valid concerns of poc fans, who are just as important as any other fan! fact is, disney isn’t diverse enough. not in terms of race, not in terms of sexuality, not in terms of body type. but hey, who needs proper representation when we have all these great straight, white, ablebodied thin characters to look up to?! perhaps all the children who may grow up feeling like they’re not good enough because disney only made one movie about people like them, but hundreds of movies about white people.
one movie with a woc protagonist does not undo disney’s years of white characters. ten movies with poc protagonists doesn’t. disney popped out a series of films with wonderful poc in the 90s, then took a break for more white people. now they come back with moana and big hero 6. that’s good that they’re introducing more poc characters. but it remains to be seen if they’re going to go back to producing exclusively white characters (with mostly white background characters as well) after this, and given their history, i will not at all be surprised if they think the same way you do and say “welp, now that the people of color are out of the way, we can go back to pleasing all those important white people!”
Clémence being adorable
Do you think that in Return of the King, Aragorn freaks out and runs when he sees the beacons are lit is because the last time there was a call for aid from Gondor, he got there too late?
hickeys are gross i want ten
