    Hey this is... decently inaccurate. Disney doesn’t own a copyright on Cinderella or Beauty and the Beat or Jungle Book. These properties are hundreds of years old and as such are public domain. Sure “the lion king” and “Mulan” are copyrighted movie titles (Hua Mulan is not a copyrighted character and neither is lion Hamlet) but they’re not even 30 years old. A copyright holds for 95 years. They don’t have this justification. It is literally just a cash grab. Edited to say 95 years instead of 70

    Just a quick note, I believe they turned Shanzi into a gIrL bOsS because there is a common misconception that spotted hyenas live in a matriarchal society in which the females basically enslave the males and have a harem full of them. This has been debunked a long time ago but this false allegation still goes around. I'm not a biologist but I've searched a little bit to write this comment (and actually found out it was a fake fact while doing it just now) and apparently what happens is that hyena families work something like a monarchy where the older child gets the throne regardless of their gender. The mother passes her status to the more dominant cub once they mature, and the cub can be male or female. When the hyenas mature they can leave the group and start their own or join another group, males leave more frequently while females tend to stay in the group and keep their status, that's why it is common to see more female leads in hyena groups. So it's more complex than "fEmALe hYeNaS aRe GiRl BoSsEs".

  26. Holly l

    Holly l日 前

    I was a zoology major and while the first statement (that hyenas form harems of males) is, as you said, incorrect, I want to add that they /are/ matriarchal - the females are significantly larger and more dominant than the males, and almost always occupy higher niches within clans due to this.

    Ok I've got to say this Kingdom Hearts 2 did the girl power thing way better in 2005 than the woke live action in 2017 ever could've solely by having it so that when she's captured by Xaldin and used as a means to get Beast to go apeshit Belle elbows Xaldin, who in of himself was acting rather sexist towards her, grabs the rose and bolts away knowing full well that with both items of blackmail gone Beast, Sora, Donald, and Goofy can go ham on Xaldin.

    I think that with the live-action remakes, the "wokeness" isn't really the problem. Yeah, there was a scene in Beauty and the Beast remake that was like "Oh no! Wamen read book!" but there was also a scene like that in the original. I think the big problem is how unoriginal they are?? They change almost nothing except give us some icky-looking CGI and butchered, disgusting versions of the original Disney songs

    @Mizzkie I mean her red hair is...iconic. Black gingers do exist, so i really hope they leave the hair. At the very least, the girl is a mermaid. Let her have inhumanly bright red hair. And while ginger bashing isnt as common now (or at least as public! I think people just forgot) i do remember how mean people could be to ginger kids so i absolutely understand your point! As a kid seeing Belle be a princess with brown hair, as silly as it is, was really important to me. I thought pincesses could only be blond. Nowadays it doesnt matter if she has brown hair, but for 5 year old me back then, it was a wow moment! Any kid deserves to see themselves in characters in movies. :)

    She was the boss in the original, though, too. It was just more subtle. They did loads of research into the animals before making the film, so they knew female hyenas were the leaders, hence why she's written as the most level-headed and intelligent of the group. The remake had to shove it in your face like the audience are idiots.

    This "Girl Power" thing that Disney does is literally what happens when WOMEN don't actually get to even assist in the process, while the message is female empowerment. They literally MANSPLAIN it, through the lens of a (generally) white male view of things like feminism. It's great that they want to fix some plot holes, and maybe remove some instances that (in 20/20 hindsight) are wrong/offensive, BUT... in the process they've lost the art of nuance. Instead of whispering it, having done their job throughout the movie by having the moral undercurrent consistent throughout the film with all of it coming together to hit home in the end, they choose to SHOUT IT IN YOUR FACE like you're stupid (hence "Mansplain"). Side note: in The Princess and The Frog, the bankers are the closest thing that touches on the REAL struggle, even now (IMO).

    Uncertain to what extent I can buy into this argument. On one hand, yes, the new Disney approach to dealing with problematic material is trite, overdone, and leaves a lot of things to be desired. On the other hand, though, who is the audience? Little kids. Sure, they want adults to go too, but it is little kids that are still the focus. How do you really include a nuanced dissection of Disney's past problematic racist stereotypes in a movie intended for 5-year-olds? What 5-year-old is mentally prepared to handle that? How well will little kids catch those nuances, or a nuanced treatment of feminine empowerment, or a nuanced anything for that matter? If you want to communicate with a five year old, you do it as bluntly as possible. They want little girls to grow up believing they can be whatever they set their minds to, and they say that as bluntly as possible, with power ballads and girl-bosses, and everything. Is it flawed? Sure. Are they trying to sell merchandise? Absolutely. But, a lot of studios don't even try. So, on the whole, I can't see it as entirely bad, or entirely disingenuous. We have developed this kind of cynicism where we can see evil in anything flawed. And, maybe the motives aren't pure, but that also means they aren't purely evil. Nobody starts out perfect, so the best we should expect is a slow process of becoming better over time. And, that's what I see here. So, I will forgive the missteps, and enjoy the show.

    @Malevolence89 Agreed; forgive, but don't forget. And, I also will be expecting them to get better at it over time; the current state is still flawed, and I do want to see them keep working. I just think you get further with people when you recognize and affirm their progress than when you demand immediate perfection; debatable whether the same applies to giant corporations, but I'm willing to give it a try, and give them a bit of benefit of the doubt.

  71. Malevolence89

    Malevolence896 日 前

    In terms of revisionist history I think we can forgive but not forget. Disney's problematic history was relevant to it all the way up to the World War 2 propaganda. We can decide to forgive them but we should make sure to not forget like Disney wants us to. I think this also applies to other revisionist history things across the board. I think we also need to call out Disney when they have bad characters and writing rather than let it slide under the progressivism excuse. When the new Starwars movies were criticized for bad writing JJ Abrams said that the critics were "Threatened by female leads". Calling critics sexist should not be acceptable especially by Disney who had such a problematic past. I do think we agree on a lot which is cool. I mean Mulan was a great movie and it was made 22 years ago! I just think more recently some of the movies have been made with having a strong female lead in first priority with the rest of the story and movie coming second. But yeah if Disney can just make more movies with character depth, such as Moana and Frozen, that would be fantastic.

    That’s what you think. I personally enjoyed the new remakes much more than the old movies, so I think it’s just taste. Aladdin was amazing, so was lion king (although the animation was.. lacking) and all the Disney themes remakes (Into the woods, Snow White and the huntsman) were decent too. Especially maleficent: that was miles better than the original one. The non-remakes are also really decent, Moana was a really solid movie, as was frozen, and now frozen two. I had some issues with wreck it Ralph, but for the most part, Disney is doing amazing, (think of Up, beauty and the beast, dumbo, the jungle book remakes). The reasons people hate the newer Disney movies is because people don’t like change. Maybe if you stopped being so locked in the past, and saw the movies as their own thing, you would be able to appreciate them for what they are (and I say this as someone who watched all the old movies).

    I hate it when people trash the animated Cinderella because when you really look into it, you see the story of an abuse victim finding the courage to leave her abusers and purse a better life for herself, which many people could relate too, which is having to live with people who make you miserable. The prince is never a character in the story, just a way for Cinderella to escape from her abusers, which she actively pursues.

    It's because a man and becoming a princess was her chosen method of salvation.

    Regarding Ariel "... And it's NOT for a guy!" That is actually the original Danish fairytale by HC Andersen. Yes, the prince is in the fairy tale, and she does fall in live with him. But. It is not for him. She says again and again that what she wants is what humans are said to have: the immortal soul. THAT is what she wants. The witch can give her that if she can make a human love her in three days. Or. She will die. Here after, again and again she says "I long to have my prince _and_ my immortal soul." He is actually just the means to the end. *Spoilers:* in the original, he marries the other woman, and therefore the mermaid dies. But: she finds that she still lives as a soul. Because even though he married someone else, he loved her deeply as a friend. And as a spirit she sees him crying by her dead body. So she gets the soul she wanted. It was not for the prince at the end of the day. :) So if they do do a new woke version, maybe they use the opportunity to stay closer to source material ... In which it is actually not for a guy. :)

The only thing I found racist was that (due to Hollywood prejudices) the actor who played Uncle Remus wasn't allowed to attend his own premiere.

    @Cody Potter that's odd, I just looked up "dumbo nip slip" and the 1st two results gave me something. It happens at the part where the mermaid woman is singing at night (i think she was creating a distraction?) before they rescue Dumbo's mom. It was my bf who caught it when we watched it, for some reason it appears to have gone largely unnoticed.

    @Thong Do alladin is a very popular children's tale in the middle east and the movie was obviously referencing the thousand and one night version though, even in the genie song he mentioned scheherazade, and all the names are arabic (alladin علاء الدين, jasmine ياسمين , abu, jaafar and so on, even genie means spirit in arabic) so implying it's indian/ mentioning bollywood is just weird and kinda out of place

    Not really, Thousand and One night is a Arabic work, yes but it also is a collection of stories from across the Silk Road, but the original story set in China but use Arabic terms to describe Chinese things ( "Sultan" use to describe the "Emperor"). Also Disney did make an Aladdin live-action set in China.

    I never quite got why people say the pink elephants traumatized them when they were kids. I saw Dumbo countless times when I was little, and I always thought it was fun and weird (though it was a long time after that I found out Dumbo was actually drunk). As for the crows, they missed such an opportunity with the new movie by just taking them out. Again, the crows were something that as a kid I obviously didn't understand were racist stereotypes, they just had like the best, catchiest song in the movie and were some of the most likable characters that seemed to actually help Dumbo figure out flying (this is just my reading from when I was a child, not an actual summary of them). And that's just it: they are simplistic stereotypes in an hour long 1940s children's movie. What could they have done with them if they kept them in the movie? Well: 1. Take out all their characteristics that are just blatant 40s black stereotypes (Duh) 2. Have them voiced by actual black actors/singers (Duh) 3. Flesh out what they contribute to Dumbo (giving him the confidence to believe he can actually fly), and why they are the best characters to do it. Dumbo is fundamentally an outcast, looked down upon by society for an arbitrary reason and made to look foolish for people's entertainment. If you maintain that the crows are still analogous to black people (non-stereotypical in this scenario), then would not a group of black men (or women, could change that up to) in the early 20th century be able to relate to that kind of treatment, and from that, could all parties not then come to the conclusion that they don't have to be defined by society's ridicule and scorn for them? Personally, that sounds like a way better, more nuanced and progressive plot then "girl boss scientist, no drinky for the baby and cruelty free 1910s circus". By all means, I can see a million ways this could still be a problematic premise, and as much as I may think its a good way to handle the crows (if they would have), I am completely to other, probably better reasoning as to why I'm wrong and/or other opinions on how they could have dealt with it (this being in a world where Disney decides to do the most non-Disney move ever and actually try to reconcile with the problematic content of their catalog). Also, a belated "Great video, I like it"

    The Mulan remake is going through something like Captain Marvel all over again. Critics praise the movie. But, audiences hate it for being poorly written, stupid, with a shallow, overpowered and uninteresting Mary Sue, shoving feminism down your throat. This is making me concerned on how they're going to handle Ariel in the upcoming live action Little Mermaid remake.

  139. LinkMarioSamus

    LinkMarioSamus5 日 前

    @TheOmegajuice People were at least receptive to Captain Marvel enough for it to reach the billion-dollar mark without noticeable hits from poor word-of-mouth like, say, The Last Jedi, plus CM has proven to be nowhere near as controversial in the long run. Though to be fair Captain Marvel was kind of just cookie-cutter MCU and even people who liked the film admit it - I wouldn't quite say I liked the film but it still showed a lot of the MCU's strengths, just none of the things that make the truly good instalments in the franchise so special. It feels like nowadays anything perceived as being "woke" gets immediate backlash from people expecting it to be the next Last Jedi or something, but then gets gradually forgotten at worst and might even pick up a decent following at best, e.g. Captain Marvel, Terminator: Dark Fate, Birds of Prey, The Last of Us Part II. Like, I honestly don't understand why people are so deathly afraid of this, as if increased representation is somehow the biggest factor in any problems these movies or games may have and not just plain poor writing or filmmaking. I must be the only person on the planet who doesn't like most newer movies, but for whom forced political agendas are pretty low on my list of reasons why. This might be because I watch mostly older movies and rarely watch anything released less than 20 years ago, so I don't really follow the current movie scene since most of those movies don't interest me period. I haven't seen any Disney Star Wars movie more than once, and while I vaguely remember liking The Force Awakens my reaction to the rest has basically been "whopeedo, more Star Wars". Yeah, I actually think The Last Jedi wasn't daring enough.

    Critical reception for Captain Marvel and Mulan have both been generally favourable "quite good" but they weren't universally or highly praised (in the West, Chinese press really haven't liked Mulan at all) but just feel positive based on the over-the-top negative reactions you get by some people on social media who think they're the worst things seeming based on the presence of common film tropes and a dislike of the film's marketing. Overall audiences liked Captain Marvel more than critics given the box office success and positive reception from multiple of the more scientific film surveying groups like CinemaScore (A) and PostTrak (84% positive) ... unless of course you base your view of audience scores on the self-selected group who flood Rotten Tomatoes IMDB with 1 star reviews of post multiple rant filled videos to their JPreporter channel... sometimes without even seeing the film.

    Does anyone else here find it ironic that the new elements introduced in these remakes are problematic, even though Disney is throwing out the old problematic things that dated the original films? Like Jasmine yearning to be a sultan and singing about how she won't be silent; where in the original Disney film Aladdin she had an arc about not wanting to be a Princess anymore and distracts Jafar by dressing as a "slave".

    I agree with most of these statements but I do have to say that making Shenzi a "girl boss" actually does make sense in the context of the movie, as female hyenas are literally the bosses of the clan. Hyenas run by a matriarchal system, with even the highest ranking male being lower than the lowest ranking female. Since Disney was trying to make a more realistic version of The Lion King that choice of character modification shouldn't particularly be criticized. Otherwise great points, especially with the Beauty and the Beast portion!

    I'm Nobody You Know7 日 前

    @AndrewsMagicandMore @AndrewsMagicandMore Maybe 'realistic version' wasn't the right phrase, 'realistic visuals' is the right way to put it, my bad. I was just trying to say that the stylistic choice for this movie was to clearly be more realistic about character designs and settings, and not the plot which is why there's still talking lions. I'm also thinking that the reason for all the dry scenery and the dust on animals is because Pride Rock may be located in central Africa, right on the equator. Where there tends to be very little rain and a lot of dry dirt and dust that tends to get on the animals in the area a lot. However it doesn't do that for the entire movie as the place we're Simba grows up in has plenty of lush greenery and no dusty appearing animals due to the abundance of water.

  178. AndrewsMagicandMore

    AndrewsMagicandMore12 日 前

    That whole "The Lion King remake is realistic" argument doesn't really hold water. Because Africa should NOT HAVE to look like it does in new Lion King film - as if someone literally shat all over the set (I'm referring to how everyone of the animals look like they rolled into ground soil one too many times and African greenery are faded brown). Not to mention The Lion King 2019 still has the talking animals aspect.
