So thanks to the marvels of modern technology (Netflix Instant), I saw Who Framed Roger Rabbit!

The story, the characters, the animation, the comedy! Why, I haven't smiled or laughed that much since I don't remember when! Fantastic movie, I'm glad I saw it, and this movie is right up there (next to Fantasia) as my No. 1 favorite movie.

@RR529 I'm sure Disney knows what it's doing. I'm sure it'll be almost as good as the first one, maybe less than that, but I'm sure I'll still love it.

If we've gotten into an argument, it's okay. I'm probably not holding a grudge against you. Why? Because I like you!

So I watched four of those new Mickey Mouse shorts.

Stupid, annoying, and (sometimes) downright disturbing. This was clearly made with the audience of "Teen Titans Go!" in mind.

So I guess I have a reason to dislike it other than the fact that it fondly looks back on this:

And this:

Though that's still a very valid reason to dislike it.

To be fair: If they never changed, we'd still have that bratty, tobacco-spitting, animal-abusing Mickey Mouse I showcased in the GIFs.

A film that is bound to become one of my personal favorites, Saving Mr. Banks is a biographical drama film centered on the production of the 1964 Walt Disney Studios film, Mary Poppins. It's coming this December on the 13th.

It stars Tom Hanks as Walt Disney.

(And now, an excerpt from Wikipedia.)
"The film depicts author P. L. Travers [Emma Thompson] and her two-week briefing in Los Angeles as she is persuaded by filmmaker Walt Disney [TOM HANKS], in his attempts to obtain the screen rights to her novel."

Apparently, Tom Hanks took several visits to The Walt Disney Family Museum and interviewed some of Disney's relatives including his daughter Diane Disney Miller. All to prepare for the role of Walt Disney.

What are your thoughts on this, other people that go to this thread?

Hmm... Not sure. I'm no fan at all of Mary Poppins, but those "making of" movies always seem interesting, so I guess it'll be worth a Watch.

Generally speaking, I really, really, REALLY miss the good old hand drawn movies Disney used to make. I mean, what's this obsession with CGI and computer animation?? It's horrible if kids gonna grow up with no clue as to what The Lion King or Beauty and the Beast is. What a miserable childhood they'd get...

I completely agree with you. Who's to say that there can't be a mix of both hand-drawn and CGI films? CGI is great and all, just look at Pixar, but there's something about hand-drawn animation that is timeless and classic. Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is just as stirring today as it was back in 1937.

Absolutely. I think Tangled was a good enough compromise, after so long without anything.

I like the idea of this movie and the poster is cool.

@dumedum If that was supposed to imply that it might turn out like The Phantom Menace, let me remind you: Jake Lloyd was no Tom Hanks.

Actually, now that you've got me thinking about it, TPM would've been awesome if Tom Hanks was Anakin! XD

@DdFixen @DestinyMan Completely agree with you both. I already like Sofia The First, but it'd easily become 10x better if it wasn't CG. Which makes me all the more excited for Who Framed Roger Rabbit 2!

There were a lot of things, but this one takes the cake: The fact that they took Pocahontas, who was about 12 at the time (in the actual story) I believe, and made her into a gorgeous young adult complete with 360 turn glamour shots of her. Which was only made worse when they had her kiss John Smith (who was about thrice Pocahontas' age in the actual story as I recall).

Again: Yuck.

I try not to think of it as inspired by real history but as just a story Disney cooked up, just as I try not to judge Disney films about classic fairy tales like The Little Mermaid according to their original stories. Disney likes to make radical alterations to their animated adaptions of classic fairy tales almost to the point of being completely different than the source material.

Aladdin is a great example. Aladdin himself was supposed to be a boy in the original story instead of the young man in the Disney adaption. The Cave of Wonders was a lot simpler compared to Disney's tiger head cave. Aladdin had a mother in the original story too. Jasmine had a harder to say name in the original story. The Genie could give Aladdin unlimited wishes instead of just three in the Disney film. Actually, the beta of Aladdin was a lot more faithful to the story than what we know today, but I still think it's a great film.
