PrueFever's beautiful icon.
And the fan of the mese of August is... PrueFever! Yaaaaaay! Congratulations, te deserved it. Now, the questions. Congratulations on being the fan of the mese of August 2014! How do te feel about it?
Great, really great! But also a little bit weird. I’ve been on fanpop since 2011, so I’m definitely one of the ”old” users here on Fanpop. But I think the reason I haven’t been fan of the mese is because I haven’t been that active on the DP Spot in some time, so a lot of Fanpoppers didn’t know about me. But then I started to carica some Screencaps and that got me some new Friends and then it earned me some nominations for FotM and I won the Countdown for August. So yeah, it feels great. How long have te been an active member of the DP club?
Oh, jolly gosh... That’s a tough question... I’m sorry, but I have a terrible memory when it comes to remembering certain things and this is one of those things. (Laughs) But I’d say I’ve been an active member on the DP Spot for about 4 years. It was one of the club I first joined, alongside The Little Mermaid Spot and the Disney Villains Spot. How did te discover Fanpop?
I discovered fanpop in January 2011. I remember looking on the Internet for Screencaptures from The Little Mermaid. I found a lot of those on the Mermaid Spot and then I checked the sondaggi and I really liked those. But I couldn’t vote in them since I wasn’t a member of the site yet. So I signed up for a membership and I can honestly say it’s the best decision I made in my life. I’m hooked as much now as I was when I signed in for the first time. There are just so many cool things te can do on Fanpop. And the best thing is that it’s completely free! Who is your favourite Disney Princess, and why? And your least favourite?
My preferito Disney Princess is Princess Ariel from ”The Little Mermaid”. She’s a rulebreaker, troublemaker, Prince-marrier and just naive enough to be cute. I just Amore her adventurious side and her bubbly personality. She chased her dreams to the very end. It meant putting her own life in danger, but she wouldn't stop until she was with the one she loved. But I think my Amore for Ariel has a lot to with the fact that Mermaid was the very first Disney Movie I saw. Nostalgia definitely plays a huge part in my Amore for Ariel.
Least preferito Disney Princess is Rapunzel. I really can’t stand her. Sure, she’s beautiful animated and she’s... She’s... Erh, just not my cup of tea, let’s put it that way. She’s just way too modern for my taste. I just don’t understand why all the animated Film these days have to act all street-wise? Everything has to be Shrek and so funny. I mean, Rapunzel uses a frying pan as a weapon. ”Haha, that’s so funny!” some might say, but not me. I remember seeing Rapunzel - L'intreccio della torre in the cinema with my friends. One of my Friends were laughing so hard and he LOVED Maximus! And again, I just don’t get it... A horse recitazione like a dog! Gets on my nerves every time I watch the movie.
I like Pascal, he was cute but Maximus is just plain annoying. I think Disney took it too far with that. Who is your preferito Disney Prince? And your least favourite?
Hmm, good questions. preferito Disney Prince... Has to be either The Prince, Prince Charming o The Beast/Prince Adam. I really like how romantic The Prince and Charming are. Prince Phillip included. And I Amore the transformation in The Beast, from an angry and grumpy guy to a romantic, sensetive guy.
Least preferito Prince is Flynn Rider, again from my least preferito DP Movie Tangled. Thinks highly of himself, way too modern, the smoulder... Not a fan! Which princess have te started liking più than before, and why?
Cinderella. When I was a kid, it was all about Ariel, gelsomino and Pocahontas. Then when I started to collect Disney Film on DVD and Cenerentola arrived in October 2005, something changed. I saw the movie and fell in Amore with it completely. The characters, the story, the music. It was like I saw it for the first time. I had probably seen the movie when I grew up but it didn’t catch me like it did back in 2005. The same thing had happend with Bambi and Lady and the Tramp. When they got released on DVD, I saw them in a whole new light. Part of growing up, I guess. So yeah, Cenerentola has grown on me... A lot! What is your favourite DP song?
Has to be either A Whole New World from Aladdin o colori of the Wind from Pocahontas. I just Amore both songs so much. They’re just pure Disney Magic. I get shivers every time I hear them. What is your preferito Disney Princess movie? And your favourite scene?
preferito Disney Princess Movie is The Little Mermaid. It was the first cartoon I remember seeing when I was a little boy. I remember being completely mesmerized da it! It just blew me away! I was so fascinated da the songs, the characters, the story, all of it! And my Amore for the film is still as strong as ever! I will always Amore The Little Mermaid and Disney. It has always meant a lot to me and my family. My dad always used to take me and my sisters to the local store and buy the latest Disney Film on VHS and then we went home, he made us cena and in the evening we all sat down and watched the Disney Movie. I loved it. Also, every week when we got our allowance, I used to run down to the local Book Store and buy these little Disney Characters Figurines. I was obsessed! (Laughs). Also I've been to Disneyland Resort Paris twice. First was in September 2003 and the secondo time was June 2010. And this year, I went to Walt Disney World in Florida with my little sister Joan. It's was great!
preferito Scene from Mermaid is Crash the Wedding. te know, when Scuttle and his army of animal Friends attack Ursula, disguised as Vanessa, from marrying Eric. Vanessa is so beautiful and I just Amore the way the animali attack her, I bet the animators had a lot of fun with this scene. A beautiful woman getting attacked like this. But also, it's a very important scene in the movie as Ariel and Eric doesn't get to baciare in time and Ursula wins. What is your preferito non-Princess Disney movie?
Goodness gracious, that is a tough one! I’m a Disney Dude, so I really Amore most of them. But Pinocchio, Bambi and Lady and the Tramp comes to mind first. And if I have to pick just one movie, it would be Pinocchio. That movie has it all. Great animation, great songs and a beautiful score. Voices are Top-Notch as well. Which princess do te think is the most unique?
Oh, Princess Merida from “Brave”. I like the fact that she doesn’t end up with a Prince. And the fact that she’s the first Disney•Pixar Princess. That’s what makes her unique in my eyes. Which princess do te relate to the most, and why?
Belle. She’s the odd one in her hometown. I was the odd kid in my school. Socially awkward. I was never one of ’the cool kids’. I had a few Friends and that was it. I never went to birthday parties o parties in general. So I’d have to say I relate to Belle the most. But also a lot of Ariel as I like to collect all kinds of Disney Junk. Posters, figurines, books, movies, topo, mouse pads, mugs, plates, computer mouse, magazines, cards... A lot of Disney Stuff. So a little like Ariel as well. Is there any Disney heroine te wish was considered an official DP?
Megara from Hercules. Because I Amore her. She’s a great Disney Character. And really beautiful. Also I think she has a great personality and if she was added into the DP Lineup, Hercules would recieve più love. What fairy tale would te like to see Disney turn into a movie next?
Hmm, a new version of the Rapunzel fairy tale that’s not so Shrek-like? (Laughs) o maybe Anastasia so we finally can end the ”Anastasia-is-not-a-Disney-Movie” once and for all. You’re the first of the DP Users to earn a Purple Legendary fan Medal for all your work in the Walt Disney Characters Spot. Congratulations. How did that make te feel when te saw it?
Thank you. I was Over the Moon at first! And it's funny, because a week o so before I got the Purple Medal, I had my 30th Birthday and when I logged on that day, I saw I had earned a arancia, arancio Super fan Medal in the WDC Spot. And that was so great. I felt like it was a Birthday Present from Fanpop. And then, suddenly I got this Purple Medal. And I'm like "Whoa, time out! What just happend here..?" I just couldn't believe it! But after I read a reply on the fanpop Page where the user KateKicksAss says the following:
"They're just virtual profilo decoration! I mean, sure it might be fun to have some, but overall, they really don't affect your fanpop experience."
And I realized, she was right! They are just Virtual profilo Decoration, but they are also great to have. For me, they mostra my affection for certain things, things I really like and care about, something that means a lot to me, personally! Finally, why did te make the Walt Disney Characters Spot? What's the story behind it?
Well, it's a funny story behind this. So 3 years ago, I postato a sondaggio in the DP Spot, that read:
”In the Screencaptures Section under Gallery, is it okay to post trofei of other Disney Characters than the Disney Princesses?”
68% voted on “This is the Disney Princess fan Club! Only the Princesses!” and commenti like ”No. There are a million Disney o Disney related club on Fanpop. Post it there!” and ”Forget it!” made me realize that the DP Spot was only for the DP Screencaps and not the place to post trofei from The Lion King o Bambi. So I though to myself: ”Okay, then I just have to make a Disney Club for my own where I can post the Screencaptures I desire” So I came up the name Walt Disney Characters and started to post DVD Screencapture from Mermaid, Bambi, Pinocchio and the other Disney Classics. Since then I have been deleting all those old DVD Screencaps and replaced them with HD Blu-Ray Screencaps instead. So there te have it.
