What I love about social justice white people

sage-kun:

juxtapiration:

is every time my friend gets stop to be told off by some white person, very rudely, how his tattoo of a dreamcatcher is racist and insensitive to the Native American people and should removed/apologize/be ashamed.

He is Native American and they confuse him for Mexican every time, and he just states “But I got this at the reservation I lived in for 15 YEARS.” and proceeds to falsely place a curse of his ancestors on them.

Tangled comparisons - concept art to the final film. 

why the f*** is the concept art so much better

holy s*** i thought the concept art was art from the renaissance jfc

I agree the concept art is beautiful, the colors are wonderful and the character is kinda a lot more relatable in my opinion… I wonder why they changed it?

It’s been a week and two days since I posted this, and THE NOTES. I NEVER thought it would get around this much (I actually almost didn’t make this post as I thought people wouldn’t like it…)

But anyway. I’ve enjoyed seeing people’s responses when they’ve reblogged, and here’s my tuppence about the matter. Yes, I prefer the concept art. I DO appreciate Tangled for what it is - the animation and detail that Disney managed to achieve is truly wonderful. I know that it would have been extremely hard for the animators to create anything that truly looked like a moving painting. 

But. The concept art definitely could have been adhered to more closely- even if it was only through the colour schemes. And Rapunzel’s eyes really didn’t need to be that big

When I look at the two side-by-side, I see Disney pondering with the idea of presenting its audience with something really beautiful and striking, but then deciding that it was ‘too much’ and going with something more bland and easy to swallow - but also more forgettable.

Sleeping Beauty was the last Disney film to be made using hand-inked cells. Its production almost took a decade, and inspiration was drawn from medieval art for its designs. Walt Disney wanted it to look like a living illustration, and the result was one of the most beautiful and visually stimulating animations ever made.

Call me idealistic and impractical, but I can’t help feeling that if Disney today worried less about roping in its target audience - see the replacing of the title ‘Rapunzel’ with ‘Tangled’ - and more about challenging the expectations of its audience, we’d have seen something closer to the images on the left when Tangled came out in 2011. Aaaand I’m going to get off my soapbox now. 

^ this.  and this is why I’ll always have mixed feelings about Disney.  they’re more concerned about making money than making art.

Bringing it back because it’s true.
