Five years ago today, Pixar’s lovable movie Up was released! The wonderful modern adventure was an instant favorite of mine because it was original, funny, and heartwarming (first 15 minutes = OMG!).
But the best part, for me of course, was the idea that one day dogs would be able to communicate with us. How awesome would that be!
When Mulan first came to theathers in 1998, I related to her song “Reflections” because I was a young kid going through that troubled time of trying to figure out who I was. Sixteen years later, I still find myself able to relate to her struggle. Being the oldest daughter is inherently difficult, and for some reason this song popped into my head and I wanted to share it. This is why I love Disney movies, by the way. The movies have a way of fitting your emotions so well that it’s like having a confidant nearby at all times. Enjoy! ❤
Ever wonder which Disney Villain you are most like? The click here to take the quiz!
I got Jafar from Aladdin… It surprised me, of course, but when I read the description, I was even more confused. I disagree with my villain, but let me know if you agree with what you get!
I’m shocked too, buddy.
Jafar: You have a magnetic personality and people are drawn to you (normally not by choice). You’re used to small living spaces, and spend most of your time indoors. Past jobs include vizier, sultan, and genie.
Oh, the lovable Pluto! His “career” and evolution is very interesting to read about, and as an avid dog-lover (proof), I can’t help but smile as I read about all the nominations and acclaimed shorts that Pluto has starred in.
Of course, there has always been the argument of “If Pluto’s a dog, then what is Goofy?” Well, Goofy is a dog. And Pluto is also a dog. They’re both dogs – it’s just not exactly the same.
This old debate has been touched upon for decades and referenced in many movies and shows. Honestly, I see them both as dogs, and I don’t really care why one is a pet and one is not.
What’s more interesting to me is Pluto’s shady past…
Sorry, the Supernatural season finale was last night and I’m still reeling 🙂
Well, not really shady, but the status of his own family certainly is not cut and dry.
Back when Pluto’s fame was probably at its highest, he starred in two cartoons that revealed extra members in his family. In Pluto’s Quin-puplets (1937), Pluto is seen with a wife, Fifi, and five children.
And again in Pluto Junior (1942), he has a son tagging along with him.
So, where’s Fifi the Pekinese? And what happened to all his puppies? I’m more interesting in knowing that then wondering why Pluto and Goofy are the same, but aren’t really the same. 🙂
…like a stone statue in the towers of Notre Dame.
Best advice ever!
