disney over the years

Mary Blair made many contributions to Disney over the years, from working on concept art for films (including Alice in Wonderland, appropriately) to designing murals for the park and hotels. Blair also worked on many of the rides. While It’s a Small World is the ride that most notably has her stamp all over it, she also worked on Alice. Most of her original tea cup designs are still in use today.

This is Lee Thompson Young.
Lee Thompson Young was the first ever Disney star. He starred in their first ever original sitcom ‘the famous Jett Jackson’ and two Disney channel original movies. He was their first star and their first black star. He started it all.
Without Lee Thompson Young the network would NOT have gotten to where it is today. We would not have girl meets world if it wasn’t for him. We wouldn’t have any of the shows Disney has ever brought us over the years if it wasn’t for him. He started it all. He was their first star.

And today is the three year anniversary of his death. He took his own life three years ago today. He suffered from depression and bipolar.

Disney has not mentioned him once. Not on Instagram. Not on Twitter. Not on Facebook. They’re not airing his show or his movies. They are not even acknowledging him. They didn’t even on the day he died.

And that is not fucking okay with me. HE MADE DISNEY CHANNEL. HE STARTED IT ALL. WITHOUT HIM THEY WOULD NOT BE HERE TODAY AND THEY DONT EVEN HAVE THE COURTESY TO EVEN TWEET RIP.

LEE DESERVES BETTER. Please DO NOT let Disney get away with this. Tweet them. Leave comments on their Instagram. DO NOT let them forget him. Tweet the gmw stars, anyone who can get the network to acknowledge the young man who made them who they are today. DO NOT SLEEP ON THIS. LEE THOMPSON YOUNG DESERVES BETTER. HE DESERVES TO BE REMEMBERED

one would assume that when planning to resurrect a multimillion dollar franchise beloved the world over with almost forty years of content Disney would have an overall plan for the main storyline of the new trilogy, but apparently jj abrams and kasdan wrote TFA and then disney handed the reins to rian and uh. he did whatever the hell he wanted. like call me naive but im pretty sure it would have been a good idea to like….have a coherent plot + narrative arc even loosely agreed on before you made a trilogy that was supposed to tell one story over three movies

Just a heads-up: One of the most eagerly awaited Disney history books of 2017, Ink & Paint: The Women of Walt Disney’s Animation by Mindy Johnson, is now available for pre-order!

Publisher’s description:  Established in October 1923, the Ink & Paint Department set up shop at the first Disney Studios on Kingswell Avenue in Los Angeles before moving to the Disney Hyperion Studio, and finally to the Burbank Studios in 1940. At the height of production, the staff was comprised primarily of women, numbering more than 250 artists and technicians.

In this glossy volume, featuring never-before-seen photos, artwork, and detailed accounts, the process, techniques, and contributions of the women-and men-who defined the Walt Disney Studio’s legendary Ink & Paint Department over the years, are carefully explored, preserved, and shared for future generations.

People using the racist shit Disney’s used in cartoons before for why Pewdiepie isn’t at fault is just… really out of context, plain and simple.

Disney no longer uses those characters, imagery, or jokes. Ever. Full stop they do not use any of them and never air those cartoons again because they are offensive, insensitive, and racist. Even if they didn’t mean them to be, they have taken responsibility for their actions, unlike Pewdiepie. Pewdiepie’s antisemitic videos were made for the purpose of making antisemitic jokes, nothing more. They can’t even be called jokes either, because a man literally walks around dressed as Jesus and praising Hitler. That isn’t a joke, it’s Nazi propaganda because at no point is this framed as a bad thing, it’s framed as people’s horrified reactions being “funny” and “over the top”, justifying the video.

At no point is there an apology or even statement recognizing how damaging and outright terrifying this is, because as it stands right now there are legitimate nazis out and about threatening people’s lives; there is no way for people to be able to tell until after the fact that it was supposedly a joke and not an actual nazi. This is just one of multiple videos he did in this manner.

So yeah, it’s not the same thing and Pewdiepie is actually at fault. If you fail to see this, and still ‘stand with Pewdiepie’, please examine your actions and ideas because you are standing with someone, who intentionally or not, is validating the ideals of a group of people who’s purpose is to work tword the genocide of already stigmatized groups of people.

Chinese New Year?

I’m so ready for this weeks ep. They will present Chinese culture ACCURATELY, and that has been on our waiting list for a long LONG time. They use Bhuddist candles, decorate with not just lanterns that say “lucky” on them (like every other kid show presented), and they wear red. For real, I’m kinda happy she pulled the “white is the color of death” card. It shows how the writers did their research.

Alrighty here’s the masterpost for Hell’s Studio, I guess

So what the heckity heck is this au about?:

This AU spawned from a joke I made with @arsonsara about bendy looking all weird in-game because joey sucks at 3D modeling.

Basically, Joey Drew got the idea in his head that he could potentially bring his original characters to life, and then goes to do that. However, it’s not all that easy, and he ends up bringing Bendy into the real world completely off model as this hulking mess of sentient ink vaguely in the shape of a demon. Obviously Bendy is very frustrated by this. But on top of being off model, he finds even more frustration in the fact that Joey wasted precious time trying to perform a demonic summoning ritual when he could’ve spent it making the actual goddamn cartoon. Seeing how impulsive and distracted the guy can often get, Bendy decides to appoint himself the new head animator and co-producer of the show if they want anything to get done. And it all kicks off from there.

So this AU doesn’t have a big overarching plot or anything, it’s mainly just episodic and things just happen. Think of it like The Office of Parks and Rec. Most of it is goofy comedic shenanigans, but i guess there is some drama-ish stuff in there from time to time, idk it’s a mess. It’s been built off of people sending me cool ideas on Tumbler Dot Com.

I don’t intend on making an organized timeline for things that happen throughout the au because literally anything can happen at almost any time and it’s constantly being added to, so I’m just gonna list a bunch of important points about the characters and how things work.

this is kinda just so y’all have just one big post to reference.

So here we go there’s a whole heckin’ lot:

So I got this card in the mail today along with some other stuff. Thank you to whoever sent it because its super cool! But I have no idea why I got it and there was no return address except the Disney store. Does anyone know anything about this or have similar experiences??

the enchanted objects’ part in The Mob Song always makes me cry SO hard bc like the villagers won’t hurt them if they just stay still and act like they’re not alive. they’re fighting, they’re “marching into battle” not to protect themselves but to protect the Beast, their Beast, because despite all the yelling and roaring he’s done over the years they love him
