I would just like to make the decendants fandom aware that these photo’s exist.

Ok, so a few weeks ago I went to this bookfair, and look what I found…

It’s almost like a Disney decendants yearbook.And as soon I saw it I was anxiously rooting through it to find anything I could conserning my ship. (aka, Jaylos.) and this is what I found.

Chad, is a homophope. 


Now we can only assume that according to the weather and the end of the Isle of the Lost, our favorite Villian kids appeared in Aurodon half way through the school year meaning that this yearbook was published in their reality after mal stood up to her mom and Aurdrey decided to get along woth mal. 

However, Audrey comments, obviously tye into her feelings in the begining instead of at the end, which brings forth the quetion…what?

Like, was this just a sloopy mistake that nobody bothored to think about or was Audrey lying about her feelings concerning Mal and her friends?

.

Next on the list.

Chad is still a jerk face.

Jane on the other hand, is startingt o come out of her shell (at least in writting) and posseses a whole lot of sass. Go Jane!

Along with pics from the movie and strange comments, the book also includes biographies of the students, although in this cass, the Villian’s Kid’s Bios look more like something they pulled out from their records when they were originally deciding if they should bring the villian kids over

I mean, Carlos still sounds like he’s scared of dogs, (which wasn’t the case at the end of the movie, so we have to assume this was written BEFORE the contents of the movie. His Bio also outlins how much he spends with Jay to share personal informationwith as well as how abusive and terrible living with Crullea is.

Speakign of Crullea, may I piont out that in 101 Dalmations 2, It was canoon that Cruellea was mentally insane she was seeing a phyciotrist that cut her off from buying furs forcing Cruella to find another outlook of spots-Painting which laster lead to her kidnapping the puppies all over again. 

But serriously. The Isle of the lost,is the land of the leftovers, most kids over there go to bed hungrey and have never tasted sugar. Do you honestly belive that Aurodon would care about the mental stability of Cruella di Vil? NO. This means, that Carlos grew up with a mentally insane person OFF their medication, who grew more violent everyday. That’s harsh.

Jay’s Bio for the most part reflects Carlos’s in the fact it appears he wrote very soon after he arrived at aurodon noting that he’s “drooling from all the fine swag to lift”

However, his list of stuff he’s stolen says otherwise. As I’m sure many of you know in the second descendents book Return to the Isle of the lost, the gang had to go back to the isle to search for their parents’s magical items of evil. Carlos’s mother’s object was her Emerald ring that represented her pride, wealthy and power and shamed others. 

Now, look back at Jay’s list…yep. he couldn’t have stolen the ring on the Isle becasue they wree hidden in the underground tunnels which means, he had to steal it from Carlos after the second book before they all decided to hand over their objects to the museam/council for safe keeping.

So, what was this? another mistake? an added piece of paper Jay inserted after the yearbok was publishe? Does anyone own their own year book or does everyone in the school just share one?

.

Moving on! Unforchunetly, as wonderfull as Jaylos is, I’m afraid I’m going to be breaking all you’re jaylos shipping hearts when I say this…Jaylos, is NOT going to be canon. EVER. Not in Descendants 2, not in another book, NEVER. and here’s why…

“Carlos is like a little brother to me.” -Jay

You read that right. Jay, is hitting us hard with the ‘I see you as a younger sibling’ cannon ball. Prepare to abandoned ship. 

HOwever! WE all know that carlos might have a small crush on jay as according to The first Book Isle of the lost when Carlos said thought “Jay laughed again ,which made Carlos feel good, though he couldn’t explain why, not even to himself.” So congrats if you stayed on board, you are hearby saillig bnthe S.S. unrequited love ship.

Ok,Ok,Ok, sirriouly thou. Here’s what I don’t get. you guys see the las tpicture where arlos writes how he wsa scared of dogs and then Jane asks “Who’s afraid of dogs?” Like…???? WHAT THE HEACK JANE?!? HE LITTLEALY WORTE  HIS NAME???? HOW ARE YOU CONFUSED???

 idk, but that’s that. we also have another page with thier bromance grcing the pages. (take THAT chad.)

YEA, They’re familly! Which also more serrious because they grew up without strong relationships with their familly. And right now, I’m going to exclude the girls. Jay’s dad wouldn’t even LOOK at him, really. he wouldn’t, nothing Jay ever stole was EVER good enough. And Cruella? Sometimes, I doubt she even knew her own son’s name to be honest. But I guess she showed a little amout of compassion by forcing him to have “henchman” They didn’t have ANY realtionship with their parents. they barley spoke to their parents at all. For them to claim to be familly, is supper important.

Now, wait a minuite. It looks like Audrey has made another appearence in the book, but this time, her attitude toward the two boys is deffenetly different. It’s way more freindly and sounds more like her personality from the end of the movie/ the wicked world serries.

Well, that’s the end of that. Thanks for reading this long post! 

Honestly Mulan and Disney’s treatment to of that character is so fascinating to me bc like to me it’s like 2 separate Disneys

there’s the Disney that made and distributed a movie for kids that encouraged them to not let their full potential go to waste by worrying about what makes others happy or comfortable, or underestimate themselves or others

aaaaaand then there’s the Disney that only sells the image of Mulan in her matchmaker outfit. The outfit that represented how impossibly hard it was for her to conform to expectations that others forced on her.

Like, even little kids understand “this is the outfit she wore when she was the most sad” Tbh it made no sense to me as a kid I was like “Why did they make THIS the doll and why is she suddenly so content in this outfit now?”

hopes for descendants 2
  • emeraude toubia as snow white (and despite her hatred for evil queen, she befriends evie and maybe even takes her under her wing, and can you imagine them giving each other makeup and fashion tips and talking about all the cute princes(/princesses) in auradon?)
  • zendaya as the daughter of ursula
  • some gmw cast member joining the cast (my ideas would be: corey as the son of peter pan, sabrina as the daughter of elsa, rowan as the daughter of hook??? (maybe w/ some forbidden romance w/ corey’s character, or peyton as the son of rapunzel & eugene)
  • some descendant of hercules, hades, etc (maybe a daughter of hercules bc literally strong female character??? and son of hades who ends up befriending her but obviously everything is platonic bc they’re related)
  • appearance by anthony tremaine (played by ??? … i picture greg sulkin bc of that one photoset but he might be too old, idk)
  • all the additional characters from the ‘wicked world’ cartoons played by their respective voiceover actors (though i don’t really like allie too much, it’d only be fair)
  • higher budget aka better special effects, costumes, sets, etc
  • a more consistent soundtrack; like, it’s either all cheesy pop, electro/dance pop, or showtunes/broadway-type music, not all of the above
  • more adult characters (bc we didn’t see enough of them in the first film - like we saw the villains, belle & beast, the fairy godmother, & aurora’s mom but like i wanna see aurora and ariel and jasmine and, like, other princes & princesses, you know? or, like, other villains, bc who doesn’t want to see hades in a disney channel movie?)
  • some appearance by the son of aladdin & jasmine - like, weren’t we supposed to see him in the first film???? i swear i once saw a guy taking a selfie in costume claiming to be playing their son, but he probably ended up being an extra or something and like, sigh. he has to have some interaction with jay…
  • carlos being canonically confirmed as not straight (but hopefully gay)

This week on Disney Theory Reach: 

Purple is regarded as the color of royalty, and there are two princesses who are born royal, but raised not knowing this. One, Rapunzel, wears purple throughout the movie. The other, Aurora, wears a dress that are the colors you combine to make purple. Color symbolism, AM I RIGHT?? 

Join us next week when I again pick out minute details of these films and assign them as much meaning as possible!!! 

gracesheavenlylegs  asked:

Could you draw a picture of Grace and Hannah at Disney World? With the castle in the background and Grace is wearing Minnie Mouse ears with the bow headband and Hannah's wearing a SnapBack with Mickey Mouse ears. please Please PLEASE

This is ridiculously long overdue but I hope you enjoy it!

PRINCESS GWENEVERE AND THE JEWEL RIDERS (1995)

(PGJR, also known outside of North America asStarla & the Jewel Riders, and sometimes misspelled as “Princess Guinevere”) is a 1995 American comic fantasy-themed animated children’s television series produced by Bohbot Productions in association with Hong Ying Animation. It was internationally syndicated by Bohbot Entertainment in the version where the title character renamed to Starla. The series was primarily aimed for girls and had two seasons of thirteen episodes each in 1995–1996

The plot follows the quest of a young princess of Avalon, Gwenevere (Starla), and her friends, Fallon and Tamara, to find and secure the scattered enchanted jewels to stop the evil Lady Kale from taking over the kingdom, restore harmony in magic, and bring the banished Merlin home. In the second season, the Jewel Riders receive more powers and new costumes to battle the returning Kale and the mighty Morgana for more magical jewels that also need to be kept out the grasp of dark forces.

Why was it forgotten?: IT’S MARKETING KIND OF RUINED IT.

I probably should have saved this one for the GOOD FORGOTTEN CARTOON segment since it seriously deserves it but I wanted to talk about this while it was still fresh in my memory. This cartoon has the unfortunate misfortune that many cartoons aimed at girls did and still do have in that the people making them can’t figure out how to market to girls. Maybe I’m just a curmudgeon in saying that but man, just looking at the opening theme– it feels kind of patronizing in how girly it is, and it feels like they’re almost trying to be Disney-like, in a bad way.

That sucks so much because this is a positively solid sword & sorcery fantasy-adventure series. Unless I’m mistaken, this comes from some of the same creative team and the same production company as King Arthur & The Knights of Justice so it had quite a lot going for it. Despite the marketing and the overall look of the show, it had just about all of the good points that King Arthur had. It had a great cast of heroes and villains, had an ongoing plot with evolution of the setting and story as it went on, and character development!

Not only did we get all of that but it had some fairly intense action, some dangerous villains, and an interesting world with lots of different creatures. I say with full confidence that this show did the girl centered sword & sorcery story better than She-Ra by a mile, and the animation was leagues better to.

I can’t really say if this cartoon was completely forgotten or didn’t do well, it probably enjoyed some hint of success since it was broadcast internationally, had loads of toys, and lots of other goodies available. There’s also the fact that this cartoon has been sited as the inspiration for the Young Adult novel series, Avalon: Web of Magic.  

TRIVIA

  •  a third  season was reportedly planned in fall 1998 season, but it was then apparently cancelled.
  • The series was initially planned as an adaptation of Dragonriders of Pern,
  • The Hasbro/Kenner toy line had two series of action figures for girls ages 4 and up. The first series contains Princess Gwenevere (Starla), Sun Power Gwenevere, Tamara, Fallon, Drake, Lady Kale, Sunstar, and Moondance; and the second series contains Deluxe Princess Gwenevere (Starla), Deluxe Tamara, and Deluxe Fallon. According to Time to Play, the action figures’ sales “bombed”
  • Other merchandise included a series of collectible trading cards released by the Upper Deck Company in 1996, a “play-a-sound” children’s illustrated sound book by Nancy L. McGill based on the first two episodes and published by Publications International that same year, Panini Group collectible stickers, a makeup kit, Happy Meal and Long John Silver’spremium toys, lunchboxes, clothing items, and such.

CLOSING THOUGHTS

All I can say is, if you haven’t seen this cartoon give it a chance; it’s so much greater than the sum of its parts, and it’s great fun! Definitely worth checking out, especially if you have a young girl to watch it with who would appreciate it most
