The actress and comedienne, Anne Meara, has passed away at the age of 85. Mrs. Meara (1929-2015) was known best as the better half of the comedy duo Stiller and Meara alongside her husband, Jerry Stiller. She also acted in many films/TV shows over the years. I personally knew her best on the sitcom, Archie Bunker’s Place. Animation fans will recognize her as Winnie from Planes: Fire & Rescue.

Ever since I watched (and fell in love with) Spirited Away, I have been constantly told that there is another Studio Ghibli film that if not better than Spirited Away, is of the same caliber. That film was Princess Mononoke. I’ve finally gotten around to seeing it (the English dub) and here are my thoughts.

Regarding These Live-Action Disney Remakes of Their Animated Films

48 Comments

disney canon classics

As everyone knows, Disney has recently been involved in a policy where they are making live-action remakes of their animated films. They’ve released Alice in Wonderland, Maleficent, and Cinderella. Each of them have been HUGE financial successes!

Now, there are 8 more live-action remakes in the production: Alice in Wonderland: Through the Looking Glass, The Jungle Book, Beauty and the Beast, Dumbo, Winnie the Pooh, Mulan, Cruella, and Pinocchio.

I, for one, am so sick and tired of this trend! I really disliked Alice in Wonderland and Maleficent! (I haven’t seen Cinderella yet.) And I think Dumbo and Winnie the Pooh are just stupid and/or bizarre ideas to make into live-action remakes!

I personally just want Disney to leave their animated classics alone and work on more original ideas. But, I’d like to know what you all think. So please tell me in the comments how you feel about this recent Disney trend.
