Disney Canon-Forgotten/Minor Characters #54: The General

2 Comments

Seeing as there will be no Disney Canon film released this year, I think it’s a good idea for me to catch up on the Forgotten/Minor Characters posts for the Disney Canon films that I haven’t done yet. Today, we take a look at the 2014 film, Big Hero 6. I won’t go over the plot or my thoughts of the film here as I’ve done that already, so let’s go straight into the forgotten/minor character for this film: the General.

Comedian Don Rickles Dies at 90!

2 Comments

In news that I’m personally upset over, the comedian/actor, Don Rickles, has passed away at the age of 90! Mr. Rickles (1926-2017) was famously known as an “insult comic”, although he personally didn’t agree with that labeling of his work. He would have fun with everyone and get people to laugh at themselves regardless of cultures, colors, etc. Everybody loved him as his “insults” were never mean-spirited, but always in good fun!

Some movies that he appeared in include Casino, Kelly’s Heroes, The Rat Race, and Run Silent Run Deep. He also did a few animated roles such as voicing the dragon, Cornwall, in Quest for Camelot,

He’s the one on the right.

and his iconic role as Mr. Potato Head in the Toy Story films.

I will greatly miss this man as I’m sure most others will too!

‘Coco’ Teaser Trailer Debuts!

2 Comments

The teaser trailer for Pixar’s upcoming film based on Día de Muertos, Coco, has debuted!

I’m really looking forward to it! The film does seem reminiscent of other animated films like The Book of Life and Kubo and the Two Strings, but it’s different enough to be its own thing. I love the animation, the characters, and just the overall feel of the movie! Even the dog with the weird tongue is endearing, lol!

Coco hits theaters on November 22, 2017. Are you looking forward to it?

My Thoughts: MOANA (2016)

14 Comments

Of all the 2016 animated films that I’ve seen, this one is definitely my favorite!

“Well, no need to stay for the rest of the review!”

Let me give you some background. Disney was planning to release 2 animated films in 2016 as part of their official Canon: Zootopia and Moana. Ever since I first heard about it, I was way more excited for Zootopia than I was for Moana, although everyone else I knew had the opposite feeling! Zootopia was a sort of anthropomorphic animal mystery/crime/buddy cop movie that I was super excited for whilst we didn’t know much about Moana other than it would be another Disney Princess film, this time a Polynesian one.

But after watching both films, I ended up loving Moana more than I did Zootopia and again, this was opposite from what everyone else was telling me! Most people ended up falling in love with Zootopia and its morals while I ended up falling in love with Moana! It’s actually the only film in this Disney Revival era that I truly “love”!
