Tumblr since 6 June 2010.
Pokemon, music, Harry Potter, One Piece, Kingdom Hearts, and Jack Barakat are my loves.
Got me tied like a knot, twisted up in my thoughts ♥
I was lying in bed thinking about toy story last night, thinking about all the amazing parts and how funny it is, and how sad the ending is to toy story 3 of course. And it sort of hit me at this point. It truly makes me angry how people (when I say people I mean adult who are not very open and want to be adults) are so closed minded and rude about animated movies. Just because a movie is maybe targeted for younger kids doesn’t mean it’s only going to be for kids. These animated movies have something for adults too. I want you all to look at the gifs I made above. This is such an incredible scene. I find it absolutely amazing how animators can make Andy is so happy and heartbroken all at the same time. Sure an actor can do that in a second. But all the work that animators do to make this scene feel so real is amazing. This doesn’t feel like a cartoon is just sad. You can actually feel Andy’s content at this point. His happiness that his wonderful toys will be played with, but his heartbroken place because he realizes that he’s not really a kid anymore and he is saying goodbye to his childhood. This isn’t just a drawing, or in this case computer cgi, this is true emotion displayed. This isn’t for a child to understand. Kids don’t understand how Andy is feeling yet. But adults, teenagers, young adults truly do understand this. Just because it’s Disney, doesn’t mean it’s going to be sunshine lollipops and rainbows. I mean yes, that is in a lot of the movies. But Disney and Pixar make sure that everyone can relate to their films. Everyone is enjoying them. They make everyone feel like that this movie is very real. It’s a movie about talking toys, and the animation makes it feel real. I know this is a long comment. But I want people to understand that just because the main target is for kids, doesn’t mean you can’t go see it. Superhero movies are mainly targeted for guys, but that doesn’t stop girls from loving Loki and Thor. Romantic comedies are targeted for women, but that doesn’t mean a guy can’t enjoy love actually from time to time. True and genuine emotion is displayed above. And that is why I truly love animation.
I did not draw. Original Artist. I just manipulated it to look like Disney Princess because I fell in love with this drawing.
