“I’m so pleasantly surprised that Disney chose an “older” actress to play the live-action Mulan (Liu Yifei is in her early 30’s). It makes me hopeful that maybe in the future we’ll have more Disney Princesses/Heroines who are canonically 21+, like Elsa and Kida. Not that there’s anything wrong with the classic teenage princesses, but I do think it’s good to show that you’re never too old to be a princess!”

“I’m sad Disney minimized the role of animals in the Cinderella. I get they wanted the focus on Cindy but seeing Jacque, Gus, Bruno, and Lucifer go killed me.”

“It’s a lot to ask for but I wanted the The Jungle Book characters to be slightly cartoony. The CGI models feel empty when they act. I wonder how The Lion King will use realism.”

“I wasn’t surprised when Beyonce’ was cast as Nala. The only problem I have is she took away the opportunity from other minority girls. Disney went through the Pacific Islands looking for Moana why not make an international effort for The Lion King?”

“I’m rolling my eyes at some of the celebrity cast they announced for the live action Lion King. It feels more like a gimmick than anything, like “in case the film under-performs, at least people will watch it to hear their favorite actor/singer."”

“I get why some people don’t like A-li…

“I get why some people don’t like A-list celebrity casting, but I find it very transparent how people are criticizing Beyonce’s casting in The Lion King, completely ignoring that this is not the first acting or voice acting role she’s participated in. If you don’t like her, just say so, but calling her talentless or accusing Disney of selling out is uncalled for.”

“I’m so disappointed that Disney never released a full version of the Ariana Grande and John Legend duet as heard in the TRAILERS for Beauty and the Beast (2017). I love the official pop version they made too, but still, the orchestral tune heard in the trailers is absolutely beautiful and epic, and it’s a shame we’ll never be able to hear the song like that in its entirety.”

“I know the song Evermore from the live action Beauty and the Beast is about losing a romantic love, but it reminds me of my mom. I lost her to cancer this past fall, but we watched the new Beauty and the Beast together. She knew the cartoon was and is my favorite movie. Every time I listen to Evermore, I feel her presence and feel comforted.”

“I love the Emmas, Watson and Thompson, but I …

“I love the Emmas, Watson and Thompson, but I thought their singing in Beauty and the Beast was just bad. I found Thomson’s singing shrill and d her accent terrible, and, as many people have said, Watson was far too auto tuned.”

“I think I’m one of the few people who…

“I think I’m one of the few people who actually likes what Disney did with LeFou in the new Beauty in the Beast. They made him more human, more than just a dumb sidekick existing only for slapstick like the original. And I’m glad he got a happy ending.”
