Talk about patterns! First, we had a pattern of forgotten/minor characters of royalty; now there seems to be a pattern of forgotten/minor donkey characters! (See my posts on “Pinocchio” and “The Three Caballeros”)!
Oh well, what are you gonna do?

In January, I wrote a post stating how I’m taking an animated film history class this semester and that I’d keep updating my blog with my progress of the class, new information that I’ve learned, and the projects that I’ve completed. But as you’ve noticed (or probably not noticed), I didn’t write anything else about my class! Well, the semester is near its end and I’ve taken the final exam for my class.
The reason that I didn’t write anything about my class here I guess, is because I was concentrating on my Disney Canon project and didn’t want to spend time talking about other things. Also, the amount of information that I learned from this class was quite extensive, so I didn’t know really where to start.
But maybe, when I finish my Disney Canon project, I may write posts about what I’ve learned in my class. Thanks for the patience, all!

As you all know, “Beauty and the Beast”, is my favorite Disney film; hence it’s not a surprise that I also love “The Hunchback of Notre Dame” which was made by much of the same crew members as the former film.
Released in 1996, Disney’s 34th animated feature is known as one of the darkest Disney Canon films (along with “The Black Cauldron”) as well as the most adult Disney Canon film! This film deals with topics such as racism, prejudice, religion, hell, and even lust! I’m still surprised this film passed with a “G” rating! Nevertheless, it’s one of my favorite Disney films! More

Believe it or not, nobody really wanted to make “The Lion King”!
It’s true, the vast majority of people, including Jeffrey Katzenberg himself didn’t think that anyone would actually like or want to see “The Lion King”!
Preposterous, I know! Instead, they all wanted to get to work on what would be Disney’s 33rd animated feature, “Pocahontas”! More

We are now at the epitome of the Disney Renaissance! This is the film that became a nigh unanimous hit by critics and audiences alike! This is the movie that, to this day, is the highest-grossing traditional animated film EVER with a total gross of almost a billion dollars! Yes, ladies and gentlemen, we are talking about…
Wait, what?! That’s not right!
Ah, much better!
Released in 1994, Disney’s 32nd animated feature has been seen by EVERYONE in the world! And I mean, EVERYONE! And EVERYONE loves the story of a young cub who’s framed for his father’s murder and has to battle his evil uncle in the end! Who wouldn’t love a film like that? More

It’s true when they say that you can’t have it all!
Released in 1992, “Aladdin” continued the trend of the animated films of the Disney Renaissance, i.e. making a bunch of money and getting a bunch of positive reviews from critics and audiences alike! More

A couple of weeks ago, I reblogged a post from a fellow blogger (Scotty Jo)’s site.
Scotty Jo is a fellow lover of animation and has a dream of creating an animated film himself. The film will be called “Moon Bear” and is based on a story that he wrote himself during his college years. He has already started working on it, finished the storyboards, etc. You can learn more about it at his blog:
But like all projects, money is required; and Scotty Jo is looking for people who would like to donate to his cause. If you are interested in making a donation, please go here: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/566245358/moon-bear-short-film
And if you can’t make a donation, but still want to help somehow; get in touch with Scotty Jo at firstname.lastname@example.org. Hopefully, we can make his dream come true 🙂 !
