What do the mods think of Aladdin, Dumbo, and Lion King?

Jen: To summarize, I really like Aladdin and The Lion King. Dumbo is okay. The Pink Elephants scene is very good, but the rest of the movie is middling to me. 

Jordan: I like Aladdin, Jasmine was my favorite princess for a long time. Never cared for Dumbo. Lion King is ok, I think it’s a bit overrated.

i've been following this blog for about 7 years and i've always wanted to know: what exactly is the true meaning behind the tiny prince erics that are occasionally put into confession pictures?

whomst????

No I mean Illumination as in the studio that makes Despicable Me, The Secret Life of Pets and Sing. Also Hop, The Lorax and the Grinch.

Mod Jordan: Was the question just our opinions? They’re decent movies, I liked Sing, but otherwise I dont really pay much attention to them I guess?
Mod Jen: I have literally not seen any movie you’ve named except The Grinch lmao

Do the mods have an individual tumblr?

Do the mods have an individual tumblr?

Mod Jordan: Yes, but I rarely ever use it now. I really only use Instagram.

Mod Jen: No but I have instagram, @weeb.couture 🙂

A mod question: Thoughts on Illumination?

A mod question: Thoughts on Illumination?

Jen: Are you talking about Illuminations, the fireworks show at EPCOT? It’s nice. I’m a jaded ex-cast member and I don’t sit through the fireworks shows anymore. I absolutely adored Wishes though. It was my favorite <3

Jordan: I’m also going to assume you’re talking about the EPCOT fireworks show, and I’ve never seen it. I’ll be at Disney in June and maybe I’ll get to then, but I’m sure it’s spectacular.

Question for the Mods: Do you think in about 50 or so years we'll get a third Mary Poppins movie titled "Mary Poppins Forever"? Or do you think we're only going to have these two movies we have now?

Mod Jordan: It depends if the new one was successful, I guess. And how nostalgic people get about it, I’ve actually never seen either of them. 4-9 year old me refused to watch un-animated movies, so I’m not sentimental about it.

Mod Jen:  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Question: Who do you hope deals the final blow to Thanos in Avengers: Endgame? A lot of people are saying that Ant Man will by going inside Thanos's rear end, but personally I'd like it if a revived Loki & a revived Gamora teamed up & dealt the finishing blow!

Mod Jordan: At risk of sounding angry or bitter, I don’t like Marvel, will not watch them, sorry. 

Mod Jen: I’ve said this before a few times– I don’t care for the superhero genre unless it’s animated. For me it just doesn’t work in live action. I cannot get emotionally invested. I have not seen an Avengers movie after the second one. I definitely understand the appeal though!! Maybe someone will have some idea in the replies?

Question for the Mods: Did any of you see the trailers for the Detective Pikachu movie? (Don't worry, this is a Disney related question.) If you have, would you agree with me in saying that the visual style is amazing & that the live-action Disney remakes should be looking more like how that movie looks? Because a lot of what I've seen Disney do, their transition from animation to live-action has not been smooth at all!

Mod Jordan: I honestly think that the style they’ve animated the pokemon in is a bit too detailed to be cute and/or friendly looking so maybe that’s why Disney hasn’t gotten to that level. Although, I’ve never actually seen any of the live-action remakes though, I prefer my Disney animated. 

Mod Jen: I agree with Jordan, the Disney “cuteness” gets lost when you get to that level of detail. I’m no animation expert, but sometimes I’ve thought their CGI looks pretty good (like in Pete’s Dragon) but other times it looks creepy (like the objects in the 2017 Beauty and the Beast).

Hey mods what are your thoughts on ralph breaks the internet?

Jen: I was honestly surprised by it. I’ll try to be vague as possible in case some people haven’t seen it, but (possible spoilers) I was very uncomfortable with Ralph’s behavior because he’s an adult male and Vanellope is a child, but at the same time I actually really appreciated that they went in such an unexpected direction. I definitely did not expect the movie to go that way. It’s an important lesson to teach, but I still question if using Ralph and Vanellope to teach it was the right way to go. Not saying it was wrong, just torn about it. 
At times it was pretty adult, which I appreciate because I feel that recent Disney movies are pretty tame. LOVED the Disney Princess scene because I’m a sucker for anything that shows them all together. Thought the song that Vanellope sang was funny, astute, and irreverent.  The first movie is in my top 5 favorites, so this one didn’t compare for me, but I liked it a lot.
