I wouldn't call the recent Disney movies "generic" though they need to stop doing the hidden/surprise villain thing. It was good the first couple of times but we need some great Disney villains that get screen time as villains.

I doubt Wreck it Ralph 2 will be as good as the first one though I think it will still be fun and entertaining.

A few weeks ago, Tiana became the latest Disney Princess Tiana who's skin is being accused of lightening.

I don't watch Sarah Silverman's I Love You, America at all, but I read that a new trailer for it was released recently and Silverman called Christians "motherf***ers". Jodi Benson, who is one of the most religious ladies I've ever met and is co-starring alongside Silverman in the movie, must either not be aware of Silverman's anti-religious views or is sticking by her "hate the sin, not the sinner" belief. If it's the latter then she was even willing to share the stage with Silverman at the D23 Expo and took photos with her.

Well maybe Jodi Benson is an actual christian who believes in forgiveness or still believes in freedom of speech unlike some people now a days.

Though I wish Silverman would be more careful, she should know by now that anything you say or do will be used against you on social media.

I'm sure that she also knows that it's important to forgive someone for their wrongdoings. She reads the Bible often and follows the lessons it teaches.

The end credits will feature a song by Imagine Dragons. It's titled "Zero".

I can't wait.

I do hope it is at least as good as the first one, if not better.

Anika Noni Rose, Tiana's voice actress, has addressed the recent changes in the animation for her character.

Aside from my personal feelings, I noted how people felt online (and in my dms) and I was glad to see that people are still very much in love with and supportive of our Princess

"They explained how CGI animation did different things to the characters' color tones in different light compared to hand drawn original characters, and I was able to express how important it is to the little girls (and let's face it, grown women) who felt represented by her that her skin tone stay as rich as it had been, and that her nose continue to be the little round nose that Mark so beautifully rendered in the movie; the same nose on my very own face and so many other little brown faces around the world, that we so rarely get to see represented in fantasy."

"When we were making Princess and the Frog I'll never forget Mark asking me if there were any things I wished to see on her, and among the first things I said were a round nose, full lips, and that she be left-handed. He made certain to incorporate these things as he created my likeness as a Princess then, and he sat with me in this meeting showing me the steps they were taking to bring those things back that got lost in the move from hand drawn to CGI. It was important to me to hear what Disney had to say, and to have an open dialogue about legacy and representation on the process, but I'm very glad that they did."

"I also appreciate that this far into the process Disney had enough care and respect for all who love Princess Tiana and her legacy to spend the time and money to make the adjustments necessary. In doing so, they recognize that her legacy is also their legacy; two things I'm very proud to be a part of."

Just a month away till the release date. So now I must resist the urge to watch any clips that might come out and spoil anything.

The trailers and photos for this movie have shown all of the Disney Princesses in casual clothing except for Jasmine. At first I briefly thought the reason why is because there might be a moment where she would recreate the scene when she pretended to flirt with Jafar and wear similar clothes, but that won't be the case based on this new tank-top that was released by Disney.

Did she lose a cup size or is this more of the 'boobs are evil' SJW stuff?

I'm confused. Do they... do they NOT want kids to go through adolescence crankin' it to female Disney characters?

Because that's short-sighted. They're a HUGE chunk of the audience for those characters. We all did it. Sh*t, when you're like 10 and your parents control the TV, Ariel's seashells or Jasmine's bare midriff are about as good as you're gonna get. Stuff like that can be absolutely life-changing, depending on how sheltered you are/were.

I don't think the ones making these creative decisions understand how stuff works.

Idk about that but I mean, people have to start admitting that breasts exist.

We're gonna come to a generation eventually when girls will start freaking out the day theirs come in because boobs have stopped appearing on all media.

If lefties will have their way with the world, soon kids will be amazed that women and men are a thing and can produces babies.

Joking, I hope.

I feel it will be like Carrie. A girl will scream cause she suddenly has boobs and she will get punished by her SJW mother for daring to ask what are those.

Don't give them any ideas. in today's scary world, that just might happen.

At this rate, they will ban words like abroad because it's offensive to women...
