They saw beyond skin color and looked to what was really important:  Glitter.

If they're going to do this, why not base it on an African fable or something?  Then it would seem less panicky and more culturally authentic.  Or what about telling the story of Cleopatra (well, up until the snake part, anyway)?  Some think she may have been black.  At the very least, she wasn't lilly white.

Ah, my fond childhood memories of reading tales about the Princess of New Orleans... oh, wait a minute..

While not a particularly popular one, the Frog Princess is a traditional fairy tale, albeit one of Eastern European origin. I imagine that the magic in the story easily translates to voodoo, especially with a setting in New Orleans, although I doubt Disney will be brave enough to portray anything more than kid-friendly, Christian-acceptible magic tricks.

Yeah, I'm familiar with it, which is what makes me wonder why Disney think it will be OK to just superimpose a black cast over a European fairy tale.  To me that's a cultural ouch.  It seems like a wasted opportunity to me.

Yeah, I'm familiar with it as "The Frog Prince," which is what makes me wonder why Disney think it will be OK to just lay a black cast over a European fairy tale.  It seems like a wasted opportunity to me.

It turned out okay when they did Hamlet with lions, so why not?

Okay financially, anyway.

Uh-oh, we're coming dangerously close to having a serious discussion in Steve-o's brilliantly stupid thread. So, when you first saw The Little Mermaid, in the scene when Ariel first gets her legs, was anyone else thinking, "Hey, she doesn't have any pants on?"

Origins of traditional fairy tales?

Historical debate over Cleopatra's ethnic background?

Sociopolitical ethics in animated cinema?

What in God's name have you people done to my awful, juvenile thread?!?!

Sort of.  I was thinking, "Quit blocking her ass-crack, Flounder!"

Ah, that's better.

I think that explains my longtime, inexplicable hatred for Flounder. He got the money shot and we didn't.

And when the pelican (I think - some seabird) is trying to figure out what's different about her and says "New shells?" He was totally checking out her shells. ;)

I actually can't wait to see another traditionally aniamted Disney movie in theaters. It's been FAR too long.

I'll give anything by Lasseter a chance. And this one will be no different.

The last great animated flick I saw in theaters wasn't even a Disney flick -- twas "PRINCE OF EGYPT"

reclaim your thrown, Mickey!

No, really... with everything.  The Lion King did very well financially.

Lion King was and still is the shiznit for our generation's animated cinema methinks. It had everything - Elton John, Matthew Broderick, Kung Fu monkeys, Cheech Marin and Whoopi Goldberg hyenas, Nathan Lane, Darth Vader as a lion, Jeremy Irons, bug-eating warthogs, tribal African sunrises with some sort of tribal yelled-song in the background -- sweet action man

I think this movie is waaaaaaaay overrated.  Hated the fart humor, the flat dialogue,the violence, the absence of any individual character development  (especially in the female lead-- where were the ladies in this film?), the damn Hakuna Matata song, the "circle of life" crap, the obnoxious Yoda ripoff monkey, and did I mention the farting?  The only cool thing was James Earl Jones doing the "Who's Your Daddy?" thing again-- and that wasn't even original.

Your milage may vary, of course.

Speaking of doing well financially, this was the highest-grossing film of the 20th century.  But if that's your measure of what makes a good movie,  I have one word for you:  Titanic.
