Pretty much the best thing I’ve ever seen in my life.

ew i hate the redesign and also why would you put Mulan in the outfit she wore to see the matchmaker, which she hated because it didn’t really represent her?
GOD DAMMIT MULAN IS NOT A PRINCESS SHE MARRIED A GENERAL
I like how someone read all this and at the end of it all was truly outraged that…
Mulan is in the lineup
I love how all of them were gussied up an glitz’d and glamour’d EXCEPT Pocahontas.
Like she looks like she was thrown in as an afterthought.
They actually redesigned her, but people got pissed off that she was redesigned.
Y’all are shitty. You want change and then when it’s given, you all rage.
And guess what? The ones in the center are the most popular - they’re put there because they’re the ones most likely to get attention. Why would they put someone less popular in the front? There’s a reason the frontman of a band is usually in the front in pictures - they’re the ones most easily recognized. It’s simple marketing.
you know what i don’t understand? the fact that you guys are complaining about a bunch of FUCKING CARTOONS! get the fuck off my post!
“it’s simple marketing” says the person who comes to the conversation 500 years late. Please, try to convince me that Mulan is not a fan favorite, I’m waiting.
And you know what? If a company consistently markets white princesses as central to the brand- and they ALWAYS do, either just throwing in one WoC princess or 0 for smaller group merchandising, then yeah, people will associate the front princesses more with being princesses. Go back to marketing 101, you have a hand in creating the market for your product.
Also like, what is that logic even? Like the marketing of the entire line up would be off, they would lose money, just by putting Tiana and Jasmine- who are both also pretty popular princesses actually- up closer to the front?? Really. You won’t even be able to find stats for who the most popular princesses are- you’re just assuming it couldn’t be the women of color. I disagree. Although I can only find not super official stats, they do indicate that Jasmine and Mulan are favorites of the fandom.
Also lol at this last guy- when I reblogged it from you it had like 10 posts, and it’s not like you drew the thing yourself. Go back to the library and pick up a psych book on child development so that you can figure out why cartoons are not immune from critique
To me, the funny thing about this is that even though I like Mulan, Pocahontas, Merida, etc., more than Cinderella or Sleeping Beauty, I would be less likely to buy their dolls purely because Disney keeps slathering them in glitter. In the early 90’s, when I was their target demographic for this kind of thing, they decided to make the Ariel Barbie’s removable tail sparkly neon turquoise and I completely lost interest in the dolls. Ariel’s character wasn’t about sparkle and “girly stuff” like her sisters, either, she was about adventure and discovery. Frankly I’m annoyed they put her in a poufy turquoise gown here rather than the slinky purple number from the movie, if they wanted her to get glitzy and feminine.
To argue that any of these ladies are in the back because they’re “less popular” is bullshit: I would argue that Disney is (and has been for twenty years) trying to slather them in glitter to market them to an audience who values glitter over content of character. Of course Mulan isn’t going to sell as well to a little girl who just wants to play dress-up with her Barbies. Make a “warrior” line with no glitter, make dolls that are true to the movie characters, make action figure sets instead of Barbies, and I suspect those characters will sell better.
This scene was one of two I can remember after leaving the theater that struck me as absolutely Baz. I wanted the whole movie to have this kind of energy and humor.

I’m not sorry I’m a grumpy bitch; I am sometimes sorry that being a grumpy bitch sometimes makes your life complicated.
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.Marianne Williamson
i feel like this is the entire show summed up in one picture
One day I decided that I was beautiful, and so I carried out my life as if I was a beautiful girl. I wear colors that I really like, I wear makeup that makes me feel pretty, and it really helps. It doesn’t have anything to do with how the world perceives you. What matters is what you see. Your body is your temple, it’s your home, and you must decorate it.Gabourey Sidibe (via leviathanrose)
If you don’t get this reference, you’re too young for tumblr.
are you fucking kidding me pixar puts out a movie ever year a baby would get this reference
it’s not pixar it’s a reference to that time in 1994 when lamps became sentient humanoids
many were lost that day
It was a grim day for mankind. My parents took refuge in a cave and thus saved us from certain death; we lived close to a lamp factory at the time and the surrounding region was utterly devastated in the conflict.
My brother fought one off using only an egg whisk and a pogo stick.
Only 90s kids remember the Lampocalypse
My father still has the scars from where one stole his kidney
Ironically, it was a dark time.
cant even express how much i love this.
