I can not express how important Inside Out is.

Because it’s a movie aimed primarily as kids that has awesomely diverse female representation when it comes to personalities, as well as beautiful animation, explains minds and emotions and memories and all that stuff in a way children can easily understand, passes the Bechdel test in like the first ten minutes, and stresses the importance of your own personal mental and emotional health.

This is a movie with a female protagonist (who enjoys both rainbow unicorns and hockey) that tells kids that if they’re feeling out of sorts, if they’re feeling sad or angry or afraid or disgusted, that’s okay. That’s normal. And it’s telling them to speak up, to tell someone, to express what they feel, because bottling up your emotions - putting on a brave face when you really need to cry - only leads to more pain.

Inside Out teaches kids that it’s okay to feel and that is so, so, so important.

John Lasseter giving the crew a pep talk for the last few months on “Zootopia”!

The passion that radiates from John is undeniable. We’re so fortunate to have a boss that’s an animator at heart, someone who loves good storytelling and loves the craft as much as he does.

It's white washing?

I am so confused. I saw a post on someone else’s blog saying that people need to stop white washing (What is this? I don’t understand….) Disney characters who have different skin tones. Meaning, if you’re making gifs or edits, don’t color the skin tone to point where their skin is extremely pale  or a lot lighter than it originally was. So, the person made a few Adobe PSD files to amend the problem? I guess….

What I don’t understand is, how are people who make edits and gifs white washing the characters’ skin tones? Does this actually happen? Either I never notice these things or I’m just a naive girl who sees the world in 2D. I’m just so confused over this right now. In fact, there are a lot of things in the Disney and animation fandom that really confuse me at times.

In spite of this, I will always a Disney fan and choose what I see is right. Sorry for this long text post everyone.
