Coming in 2018 is Disney’s next fairy tale mythology animated feature film, set amongst the South Pacific islands, rendered in a ‘painterly-style CGI’ (think the Paperman short): and y’all are going to LOVE IT:
The main character will be Moana Waialiki, a sea voyaging enthusiast, and the only daughter of a chief in a long line of navigators. When her family needs her help, she sets off on an epic journey. The film will also include demi-gods and spirits taken from real mythology.
And if people still make a fuss about Disney not being diverse enough, I will literally go crazy
"make a fuss"? thank you for trivializing the valid concerns of poc fans, who are just as important as any other fan! fact is, disney isn’t diverse enough. not in terms of race, not in terms of sexuality, not in terms of body type. but hey, who needs proper representation when we have all these great straight, white, ablebodied thin characters to look up to?! perhaps all the children who may grow up feeling like they’re not good enough because disney only made one movie about people like them, but hundreds of movies about white people.
one movie with a woc protagonist does not undo disney’s years of white characters. ten movies with poc protagonists doesn’t. disney popped out a series of films with wonderful poc in the 90s, then took a break for more white people. now they come back with moana and big hero 6. that’s good that they’re introducing more poc characters. but it remains to be seen if they’re going to go back to producing exclusively white characters (with mostly white background characters as well) after this, and given their history, i will not at all be surprised if they think the same way you do and say “welp, now that the people of color are out of the way, we can go back to pleasing all those important white people!”
ladies dont start fights, but they can finish them.
that is a cat with a hairbow how is that relevant to the caption
Someone obviously hasn’t seen The Aristocats (recently).
According to the captions of the first Thor movie, the battle between the Jotuns and Asgardians take place in Norway, 965 AD. Around this time, Loki was born.
In Thor 2 the life expectancy was stated to be around 5,000. The average human life in developed countries from what I’ve gathered is approximately 82.
Therefore, in human years Loki is somewhere around 17.
#are you telling me loki is just going through his rebellious teenage emo stage
She’s too fabulous to be a Disney princess, so I’ll guess she’ll have to be Queen
A 16-year-old boy who drunkenly killed four people got probation this week because the judge — with no apparent irony — agreed with the boy’s defense that he was a victim of “affluenza,” whose parents taught him wealth and privilege shield consequences. The teen had faced up to twenty years in prison.
Sixteen-year-old Ethan Couch admitted to four counts of manslaughter after he and seven other boys stole alcohol from Walmart, piled into his car and struck and killed four pedestrianswhile going 70 miles per hour in a 40 zone. One of his passengers remains in the hospital with severe brain damage, and nine other bystanders were also injured.
Couch’s BAC was a .24 and he also had Valium in his system. According to reports, he was belligerent at the scene, at one point saying, “I’m outta here.” Prosecutors were hoping to get up to 20 years.
Couch’s defense was that he was a victim of his parents’ wealth and privilege; in that he never had to face consequences, which an expert summarized prior to sentencing.
He said Couch got whatever he wanted. As an example, Miller said Couch’s parents gave no punishment after police ticketed the then-15-year-old when he was found in a parked pickup with a passed out, undressed 14-year-old girl.
Miller also pointed out that Couch was allowed to drive at 13. He said the teen was emotionally flat and needed years of therapy. At the time of the fatal wreck, Couch had a blood alcohol content of .24, said Tarrant County Sheriff Dee Anderson. It is illegal for a minor to drive with any amount of alcohol in his or her system.
The victims’ families sort of agree with the reasoning, in that they too feel that Couch’s privilege helped him avoid consequences.
Couch is now being sent to a $500,000-a-year counseling center. There are apparently five civil wrongful death suits pending against him totaling tens of millions of dollars.

Literally, literally, someone needs to just fucking take care of that whole damn family.
we are going to teach this rich white boy who never had to deal with consequences something! he killed four people
so lets not give him any jail time, he was spoiled
this shit doesnt even make sense but we got people in jail for 20 years found with some weed, got people in jail for trying to make a living in this broke down economy and he literally gets out of jail because his parents never said no
but post racism america right? there is no such thing as privilege
This is fucking shameful

YOU ARE MISSING THE MOST IMPORTANT ONE …!
What about Jessica Rabbit guys?
^ seriously…Jessica Rabbit is like the cartoon sex symbol…the cartoon equivalent to Marilyn Monroe!
If you think about it, the ancestors are responsible for the “trouble” Mulan got into. Mulan and her father both asked the ancestors to let the meeting with matchmaker to go over smoothly, and they pretty much ignored them. They only acted when Mulan was about to “disgrace” them.
But then again, even if Mulan had had a “good” meeting with the matchmaker, it would not have changed the fact that the emperor asked for volunteers and the reserve troops to prepare to fight the Huns. But maybe if Mulan had matched with someone, she wouldn’t have been so quick to dress in her father’s armor, impersonate a soldier, and put the entire Chinese army in the danger.
I don’t know. I’m half asleep right now. I fell asleep watching Mulan (not because it’s boring, because it’s one of my favorites, but because I suck at staying up once I get comfortable in my bed), and was startled by this thought in my sleep. Lol
oth meme - ten characters
↳ 8.- Alex Dupre
"It’s no secret I tried to kill myself. So I use this tattoo as a reminder to believe in something. I mean, it’s the only failure that I’m proud of. Besides, if I hadn’t have failed, I would’ve missed out on all of this".
I hated her at first, but I ended up loving Alex Dupre. She was a good friend to those she cared about and I was sad when they took her character out of the show, even though her character, and Jana Kramer, wanted to pursue music.
Frozen is the first Disney animated feature film to have a woman director. It’s also the first to have a woman credited as the sole writer since Beauty and the Beast.
Why is nobody talking about this?
why ride a rollercoaster when you can ride me
Because rollercoasters can actually make me scream.
