I started drawing because of Disney movies and I dreamed of being an animator. But after being turned down at an art school, I made choices that have moved me away from that dream and I stopped drawing. Now I feel trapped in a job that I hate deeply and want to stop but I have no plan B.When I’m sad like that, I love watching Disney movies, but for the moment, it just shows me what I could have been if I had not given up on my dream.
Watching Disney movies in theaters has been more effective than ten years of therapy.
Disney used to be a thing between me and my best friend. Now, however she has completely pushed me away, to make way for her boyfriend and her boyfriend’s friends. Now it’s hard to watch certain movies, because all I feel is loneliness. I know it’s petty, but I just miss watching Disney movies with my best friend
I live with two housemates, and we all share one TV. They work later shifts than I do, so I usually get to watch whenever Freeform puts on Disney movies in peace. But if they come home early, I quickly flip the channel to something more “adult” because I don’t want to get judged.
I grew up in a foster home with six other kids close to my age. It wasn’t the worst experience I could have had, but I never really got the familial love and attention I always wanted. Once a week, our foster parents would have ‘Disney Movie Night’ in the rumpus room, and my favorite was Jame and the Giant Peach, because it was about an orphan who ended up getting the family he always wanted in a place he didn’t expect. I always wanted that to happen to me.
As strange as this sounds, I’d love Hatsune Miku to voice a Disney character. Her voice bank has gotten better and better over the years where you can tune her to sound as human as a person, and her singing is lovely. Mitchie M (a producer) has done some awesome songs where she genuinely sounds real, and I really think it could work for a film based in Japan. Not to mention, she has an English voice bank now, and it’s actually really good!
“I’ve never been able to really get into the princess-centered Disney movies like Snow White and Cinderella because I can’t relate to Disney princesses. I’m not dainty and poised. My mother would give me grief for not liking the ‘girly’ Disney features. But I find non princess movies like Robin Hood and Big Hero 6 more exciting. But at 27 I still have a gender role guilt trip for not liking princess centered movies.”
Although I love happy endings, I kind of wish Disney would make endings that didn’t end happy. I mean they should make bittersweet endings. Where even though everything turned out bad, it’ll be okay at the end; like how “The Fox and the Hound” and “Pocahontas” ended. This will teach kids that even though bad things happy, it will turn out alright.
I’m proud that one of the first ever Disney movies I saw was Bambi, despite being born about 50 years after it was made. It came out in my country during my childhood because dubbing into our language had just become a thing. Bambi thus holds a special place in my heart and I’m happy that one of my first Disney experiences was one of the oldest Disney films ever made.
In real like, I’m a very fat, ugly woman. As a result, I’m wickedly shy. I cloister myself in my apartment on weekends. Depending on how I feel, I’ll smoke pot and watch Disney or old sitcoms and pretend I live in their worlds. It’s the only way I can forget how hideous I look.
