In case you missed the news yesterday, Oscar-winning “Brave” writer and co-directer Brenda Chapman released a very strong statement against the Merida makeover this weekend. Actress and model Lily Cole, who inspired Merida’s look for the film, also tweeted her support for the campaign today, saying “I am Brave!! Tia Kratter [the Art Director] at Pixar said I inspired Princess Merida…” and “I need to personally defend Merida!”
Support continues to mount for the petition — now with over 115,000 signers! Let’s keep the pressure on — please sign and share “Say No to the Merida Makeover and Keep Our Hero Brave!” petition at https://www.change.org/keepmeridabrave
In her statement to the Independent Journal, Chapman wrote: “There is an irresponsibility to this decision that is appalling for women and young girls. Disney marketing and the powers that be that allow them to do such things should be ashamed of themselves.”
“I think it’s atrocious what they have done to Merida. When little girls say they like it because it’s more sparkly, that’s all fine and good but, subconsciously, they are soaking in the sexy ‘come hither’ look and the skinny aspect of the new version. It’s horrible! Merida was created to break that mold — to give young girls a better, stronger role model, a more attainable role model, something of substance, not just a pretty face that waits around for romance.”
“They have been handed an opportunity on a silver platter to give their consumers something of more substance and quality — THAT WILL STILL SELL — and they have a total disregard for it in the name of their narrow minded view of what will make money. I forget that Disney’s goal is to make money without concern for integrity. Silly me.”

this sounds like something off the Dragon Warrior 3 soundtrack in EVERY SINGLE BEST WAY THERE IS
Best opening of an animated movie ever. I am so sad Disney closed the 2D animation department. We won’t get to see gems like this one anymore.
“The Hunchback of Notre Dame” is the movie that made me want to learn how to draw. The character designs, layouts, lighting, and all the dark stuff happening in this movie are absolutely breathtaking. Too bad the happy ending (Victor Hugo is rollling in his grave as we speak), the gargoyles and some horrible songs brought that movie down, and it is unfortunately underrated.
This film inspired my art style the most.

that in the Chinese version of Disney’s Mulan, the fake name she gives is “Ping”, but her family name “Fa” in English is “Hua” in Chinese, therefore her full name is “Hua Ping”, which is literally “Flower Vase”, and that’s why Shang is so bewildered because it’s a silly name.
but OP how could you not tell them the best part
“hua ping”/flower vase is chinese slang for “camp gay”
