 Walt Disney's 28th Animated Feature, The Little Mermaid (1989)
Walt Disney's 28th Animated Feature, The Little Mermaid (1989)
Hello fellow Disney Fans.

As te all know, I Amore Disney Animation. I Amore to watch the movies, hear the songs and look at the characters. But one thing I really Amore is watching the animazione in slow motion. It gives a great insight to how much work the animators puts into their work. It's facinating to me to watch a scene o a sequence in slow motion, as then I get più details the successivo time I see the movies.
Now, te all know how much I Amore The Little Mermaid. My preferito movie of all-time. Ever since I was a little boy, I enjoyed to watch the movie, even in slow motion. When I discovered...

Third in my Slow Motion animazione Gifs articolo Series, I give te Beauty and the Beast from 1991.
Now, Beauty wasn't one of my preferito Disney Film when I grew up, but over time, I've come to be rather fond of it. The Musica is great, I have the whole score (songs included) on my computer. The animazione is good as well, but there are a few scenes where I think Disney could have done it better. But I'll get to them as I make più GIFs from the movie.




Image #1: Princess Belle

Belle goes to town and sings about how everything always is the same.
I always loved this shot of Belle. She looks really beautiful here.

Image #2: Princess Belle

As she has entered the West Wing of the Beast's castle, Belle stumbles upon a torn picture of the human version of the Beast. She takes a closer look at the picture.
Now, this sequence of Belle as she studies the picture, is just perfect. Belle is really beautiful here.
 Roger Ebert's Review of "The Little Mermaid" (1989)
Roger Ebert's Review of "The Little Mermaid" (1989)
Roger Ebert: **** (4 Stars)

Walt Disney's "The Little Mermaid" is a jolly and inventive animated fantasy - a movie that's so creative and so much fun it deserves comparison with the best Disney work of the past.

It's based on the Hans Christian Andersen tale about a mermaid who falls in Amore with a prince, but the Disney animators have added a gallery of new supporting characters, including an octopus named Ursula who is their most satisfying villainess since the witch in "Snow White."

Watching "The Little Mermaid," I began to feel that the magic of animazione had been restored to us. After the...

PrueFever aka Jørgen with his idol, Prue Halliwell aka Shannen Doherty.
Life has never been easy for PrueFever aka Jørgen Jørgensen (J.J. for short). When his mom started drinking alcohol a few weeks after his birth, his father did the same thing a couple of years later, which led to Social Service removing him and his sisters from home and placed them in different Foster Homes in Denmark. Then in 1997 J.J. was diagnosed with Aspergers Syndrome, although on the mild end of the ASD spectrum. Then in 2007 his mother died and in 2008 his father was killed. And yet, when fanpop met up with him in Planet Hollywood in London, it was a fresh, smiling young man we met....

Character descrizione of Simba from "The Lion King" (1994)

The story of Simba is the story of the movie: Born to kingship, he is tricked into abandoning it and then deliberately turns his back on it until persuaded da others to assume his responsibilities. Stripped down like that, the story seems a very simple one, but that is not the real story. The real story is of the transformation of Simba's character through several pronouncedly different stages.

Walt Disney Character descrizione of The Sultan from "Aladdin" (1992)

Portly and chubby-faced, with a large turban and a small stature, the Sultan hardly conforms to one's image of the average despot, yet he is a despot toward his daughter: confined within the palace walls, she must choose a suitor of noble blood da the time she is sixteen, because that is the law. It does not occur to the Sultan until very late in the movie that, although he did not originate the law, it is within his power to change...

Walt Disney Character descrizione of Cenerentola from "Cinderella" (1950)

The character of Cenerentola was posed in live action da Helene Stanley who, to jugde da stills of her performance, was even più beautiful than the screen Cenerentola - although she was brunette rather than blonde. In a 1982 interview with Kur Wiley, Marc Davis, largely responsible for animating Cinderella, compared the character with another of his "creations", Cruella De Vil:

"I think that Cenerentola would have to be the more...

The Little Mermaid Early Original Script


It is a bright, sunny morning. Scuttle is excitedly flying toward the palace.


INT. ARIEL'S BEDROOM


Ariel is asleep in her letto with a happy smile on her face. She is dreaming of romance with Eric. Sebastian is also asleep, on the stand beside the bed, SNORING loudly. Scuttle swoops through the window and enters the bedroom.


SCUTTLE
(shouting)
Ariel! WAKE UP!!!


Sebastian wakes up with a jolt in reaction to Scuttle's screaming. Scuttle flies over to Ariel and frantically pulls at her clothes and her hair. She wakes up groggily.

Walt Disney Character descrizione of Jafar from "Aladdin" (1993)

The evil vizier is represented as a caricature villain - he has a long thin face, a curly black wisp of beard, two great spikes of something sticking out from shoulders of his customary garb, an unpleasant habit of hypnotizing people, a sinister voice, and very much more. However, the exaggeration works: the characterization is such that we early become fully aware of his evil, and we cheer when he gets his deserved comeuppance. Much...

Walt Disney Character descrizione of Prince Aladdin from "Aladdin" (1992)

As is very often the case in the Disney animated features, the story of Aladdin as a character is that of growth from selfunderestimation to the realization that the individual has worth and can achieve a particular aim, which is generally living happily ever after with the mate of his choice. The different here is that Aladdin tries to cheat - he makes the Genie turn him into a prince so that he can woo Jasmine, and it is...

Walt Disney Character descrizione of Shanti, The Girl from "The Jungle Book" (1967)

The little lass with a red spot on her forehead who comes down from the manvillage to captivate Mowgli is full of eastern promise. Although it will be a decade o so before the promise turns into anything else, she nevertheless enchants Mowgli as she fetches water from the river and sings the song "My Own Home", yet another fine piece of work from the Sherman Brothers.
She has little da way of character except her basic allure, which weaves a più powerful spell upon Mowgli than even Kaa's hypnotic attempts. Baloo advises the boy when he sees a female human for the first time: "Forget about those - they ain't nothin' but trouble!"
Mowgli, though youthful, has più sense.
 Mowgli did not want to become part of humanity... Until, that is, he saw the Girl.

Character descrizione of Ursula from "The Little Mermaid" (1989)

The Emmy-winning Pat Carroll, who voiced the part of the sea-witch (spelt with a b), is a very experienced actress on both stage and screen. Carroll envisioned the role as "part Shakespearean actress, with all the flair, flamboyance and theatricality, and part used-car salesman with a touch of con artist". She deliberately deepend her own voice, especially for the Canto (she's naturally a contralto); in an interview with Lou Cedrone...

Walt Disney Character descrizione of Jake from "The Rescuers Down Under" (1990)

The character of the Australian Mr. Competent, Jake, has a very difficult role to perform: he must be simultaneously an adventure hero and a comical figure; moreover, he mustn't be coccodrillo Dundee. This last point the animators seems to have taken very much to cuore for, although Jake's persona has many of the macho, tough-guy attributes of that hero and countless other Australian stereotypes, the core of the characterization...

Walt Disney Character descrizione of Esmeralda from "The Hunchback of Notre Dame" (1996)

If Quasimodo is Disney's ugliest hero, Esmeralda is indubitably the company's sexiest - apart from Jessica Rabbit. Esmeralda, the gupsy dancer who performs in the strada, via in order to earn coppers to feed herself and her pet goat Djali, has a huge mane of black hair, turquoise eyes that flash whenever her ire is roused, a risqué sense of humor, and an approach to life that is underlined da an attitude of steel....

Character descrizione of Snow White from "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" (1937)

Snow White in the Disney version is, strangely, not in fact very beautiful - although extremely attractive. Presumably deliberately, Disney opted for girl-next-door prettiness rather than out-and-out beauty. Moreover, Snow White appears to be extremely youthful, aged perhaps between 12 and 14 (although modelled da 18-year-old Marjorie Belcher), and still with a trace of early adolescent plumpness. However, framed by...

Walt Disney Character descrizione of Maleficent from "Sleeping Beauty" (1959)

Of all the characters in Sleeping Beauty, the one that everyone remembers, even decades later, is the wicked fairy Maleficent. She is one of the finest creations ever to come out of the Disney studio - and the brilliant transformation of her into the Dragon to fight Phillip merely adds to the strength of the characterization. Even her name - a wonderful combination of "malice" and "malevolent" - testifies to her pure evil....

While the animazione department was busily trying to complete Oliver & Company da the imminent deadline, Ron Clements and John Musker, the two directors of The Great topo, mouse Detective were working on an adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen's beloved story "The Little Mermaid." There had been astounding growth in every branch of the department from computer-generated immagini to the finest character animation. There was also a villain in this new picture that would take her place alongside the greatest villains the studio had ever created. In the sondaggi that showed Cruella De Vil as the most...

Walt Disney Character descrizione of Vanessa from "The Little Mermaid" (1989)

When Ursula adopts human guise in order to ensnare Eric romantically (with the aid of Ariel's hostage voice), she takes for herself the name Vanessa. Vanessa so strongly resembles Ariel that it is easier to note the differences than the similarities. Some are superficial - the hair colour, for example - and others much più fundamental. A curious feature of Vanessa is that, even though Ariel is in theory still a little...

Walt Disney Character descrizione of Baloo from "The Jungle Book" (1967)

It had been originally planned that Baloo should have no più than a cameo role, but the animators (Ollie Johnston was largely responsible for him) found Phill Harris's vocalization fascinating to work with and so in due course Baloo became one of the movie's major stars. Indeed, in terms of popularity and screen presence, he is the main stella, star of The Jungle Book, eclipsing even Bagheera, whose role is much più fundamental to...
