Did you know that Aurora was designed to be the most beautiful Disney princess, even more beautiful than Cinderella, I read, because that was "all there was to her?" I guess with a movie called Sleeping Beauty, she really should be.
Wah. I don't like your dislike of the princesses. Why not have a lot of Disney princess threads, perhaps it's about time? Disney's girls are big in the animation world. Anyway, now that me and Once Upon A Dream have entered, our princess fandom is being brought with us. We're infusing the system with our princess virus!Meg wrote:Hm, these princess threads sure seem to be cropping up a lot latley, eh?
Anyway...The Disney princesses have never really overly impressed me as far as character design goes. They're kind of like the Barbies of the animation world.
I was offended by your Barbie princess comment. I can see how Aurora is like Barbie in her looks and lack of personality or intelligence. I think she has personality, just not enough to seperate her enough from Barbie, I suppose. I did read in some article around the release of the film that Aurora and Phillip were too much like Barbie and Ken. I disagree, but I don't think it's totally off the mark, is the gist of what I'm saying.
But the other princesses far exceed Barbie. Are you looking at their films or their merchandise? And you can't fairly compare Barbie's recent films to Disney's classics, because Barbie's films came after them and could take quite a lot from them when trying to form Barbie's movie personas.
As for their designs, I don't see Disney's beautiful girls looking too different from the majority of any well-known animated beautiful girls, and since Disney was among the very first in animating realistically, it's unfair to say the later designs are better since they were able to deliberately be different from predecessors. And I think you need to realize different doesn't equal better.
It's known to me you have something against princesses in general, so for you to say you don't like any princess designs is a real DUH! moment because anything that looks like a princess you won't like. If I don't like apples, I won't like anything that looks like an apple.
