Here we go, from least favorite to favorite, here's the Mother's Day countdown results! I know mother's day was two days ago but I'm not waiting a whole year to put up the article so here we go :)


13. Evil Queen
So it's pretty obvious why she was taken out first; She forced her stepdaughter to be a scullery maid and tried to have her killed (twice) just because she was jealous of how beautiful Snow White was.



12. Lady Tremaine
Again, pretty obvious why she was taken out early. Like Snow White, Cinderella's stepmother forced her to be a maid. But unlike Snow White at least Tremaine didn't actually try to kill Cinderella. That doesn't mean she's any better though because she gave Cinderella false hope of going to the ball and had her daughters tear up Cinderella's dress when it looked like Cinderella was able to go, and then locked her in her room so she couldn't marry the prince.



11. Mother Gothel
There's some people who believe that maybe Gothel did care about Rapunzel a little bit, at least enough to make her her favorite food and go on a 3 day trip to get her the paint she wants. The thing is, though, whether she really cared or not doesn't really matter.
1. Rapunzel was scared to leave the tower because Gothel lied to her about how the world was full of monsters and about how her hair was cut
2. Gothel practically emotionally starved Rapunzel by leaving for a long time and having Rapunzel come to her for hugs and any love she gave to Rapunzel like kisses was all to Rapunzel's hair



10. Queen Leah
Obviously she loved Aurora very much but we didn't see too much of her and Aurora together to really have an opinion of her



9. Arianna
Again, it's obvious she loved Rapunzel but we don't see them together too much in the movie to have an opinion



8. Grandmother Willow
Mother or not, we see that she and Pocahontas have a great relationship and she gives her great wisdom. When I picture a wise grandma, she's always the first person (or tree?) that comes to mind



7. Elinor
There's mixed feelings about Elinor. We know she does care about Merida and she wants what's best for her. On the other hand, she's so incredibly strict and she tries to put her through an arranged marriage. Also she straight up sets Merida's bow on fire. She shows remorse right away and takes it back out of the fire but we never actually see her apologize to Merida for doing it.



6. Ariel
Like Elinor Ariel was really strict with her daughter. Almost like King Triton strict. We know that there was a good reason Ariel had to keep Melody away from the ocean; it was for her safety because Morgana was going to use her as leverage to get what she wanted. But the thing is Ariel didn't tell Melody why she had to stay away from the ocean. There wasn't any reason for Melody not to know and because Melody didn't know about Morgana she ended up going to Morgana without a second thought to become a mermaid.



5. Fa Li
Fa Li loved her daughter, we can plainly see that. However any time we saw her and Mulan together there was some strictness involved, like when Mulan was late and needed to get ready for the matchmaker. But at least unlike Elinor and Ariel we don't actually see her yell at Mulan or be so strict that Mulan had to run away. And when Mulan did run away to take her father's place in the army Fa Li was obviously really scared for her daughter and was more worried that her daughter might die than the idea of her daughter bringing dishonor on the family



4. Athena
We only see her in the prequel and it's only for a few minutes at the beginning. But unlike Leah and Arianna, the few minutes we see her is spent with her family who we see she loves very much. We see her singing her girls a song before bed, we see them all together at a family outing on the surface, and we see her watching Ariel play the piano. I really wish we could have seen more of her in the prequel.



3. Grandma
Grandma is someone I expect a lot of us to be when we're old. She has some of the best one liners ("sign me up for the next war!") and she practically owns every scene she's in. We don't see her with her son or grandaughter too much but we know she cares about her family.



2. Eudora
Eudora cares about Tiana and she is really supportive of her, something we rarely see in most Disney movies. She's proud of Tiana no matter what she does and she wants her to be happy, she just doesn't want her daughter to run herself ragged to fulfill James' dream of owning a restaurant.



1. Mrs. Potts
Mrs. Potts is just the best. Mrs. Potts wasn't just Chip's mom, she was everyone's mom. She was so nurturing and sweet and loveable, she acted like a mom for Belle and for the beast and she gave advice that can be used for anyone outside the movie. I personally saw her more as a grandma than a mom (probably because she's a lot like my grandma haha)

10. Megara - Hercules

She is drawn in a very specific, edgy style to fit in with her film's animation but still, Meg has beautiful purple eyes, pouty pink lips and gorgeous brunette curls. I find her quite beautiful although her body is the single most unrealistic which is forgivable since it's one of the cartoonier films.

9. Mulan

One of my all-time favourite Disney characters, she is never one to top the beauty lists. But I actually find her to be quite lovely. Simple but at the start of the film she has gorgeous hair. Of course the designers had to make it believable that she could...

Sleeping Beauty was released on January 29, 1959 and was made due to the overwhelming success of Cinderella. Therefor the Disney Studios got right to work revisiting the fairy tale formula and developing a new version of the classic story. It was decided early on that this film would have to surpass its predecessing fairy tale films.

Now with all the issues, people have with Disney, one of the films that have legitimate grievances is Pocahontas. And as you can imagine, because there ARE legit grievances to be had with Pocahontas, sites like Tumblr have an absolute field day with it. Personally, the more research I did on the situation around this film, the more I was actually fascinated by it.

I know it's easy to write this movie off but how it came to be is a lot more nuanced than you think. It actually was gonna be a story closer to what happened in history but then Jefferey Katzenberg's overwhelming desire to get another...

Hi everyone, I just watched Andrew Lloyd Webber's Phantom of the Opera just now. While watching, I noticed some similarities with Beauty and the Beast! Here are my observations.

The Story-line

As you may know, both stories are set in France, it also has a sad theme in it as it deals with a deformed person name Erik who wishes to be love. Ironically, the author of The Phantom of the Opera is by Gaston Leroux, who happens to be the namesake villain of Disney's retelling of Beauty and the Beast. The rose also plays a symbolic role in both stories.
Secondly, the Stranger Than You Dream It scene...

I loved my childhood, it was fun and crazy and there were no responsibilities but to study and to play. Sometimes i wish i could de-grow sometimes, if there's a word like that in any dictionary and be a child again. I love being an adult too - freedom to make my own decisions, doing things the way i wanted and of course spending my own hard-earned money (haha). But i loved my childhood even more, the best part was not having any complex emotions to resolve.

I was just going over my photographs with my brother and we laughed and laughed till our ribs cracked coz we were looking absolutely ridiculous!...

As an adult, I viewed the name Gaston of Beauty and the Beast's villian, Gaston, as Gaston's last name. I only assume its his last name because 1)the triplet girls call him "Monsieur Gaston" which is basically saying "Mr. Gaston" in the opening song called "Belle" in the reprise that Belle sings by herself the line "Madame Gaston, his little wife?" Most of the time saying "Madame (name" would be like saying Mrs. Gaston. And there's the fact Gaston is a first name but it could also be a last name as well. The name of Phantom of the Opera's author.
This is a series I'm starting, I did some research, I'm not gonna say I was 100% thorough, and tried my best with each princess. Some of them were easy, some were harder than others. I won't talk about Anna and Elsa because 1. I hate to say it but it's hard to pin Elsa anywhere and 2. The less princesses to write about, the easier for me. Let's go.


Snow White-Earth
She was difficult because she shows aspect of water, fire and earth. Ultimately I went with the latter, Snow White is motherly, practical and the most grounded classic princess. She's doesn't have her mind in the clouds as much....

Awhile ago, linkabout which Houses the Princesses would be in, and several of you requested that I do one about the princes as well. I’m pleased to announce that this is it!

But before I begin my analyses, it’s time for some disclaimers…

1. About the Houses. Here’s how I tend to think of the Houses of Hogwarts. (Note: I will be saying the most about Slytherin, since Slytherin is most often distorted.)

Gryffindor: values bravery, daring, bold decision-making, rule-breaking, following one’s dreams, standing up for one’s friends, and being overall “fun”/pleasant/courageous.

Slytherin...
