“pharaoh has the power. he can take away your food, your home, your freedom. he can take away your sons and daughters. with one word, pharaoh can take away your very lives. but there is one thing he cannot take away from you: your faith. believe, for we will see God’s wonders.”

An short interlude

to remind you how awesome a movie The Road to El Dorado is;

FUN FACT: while I was Vanarts we actually had an entire lesson in story writing focused around this movie. because it takes Tulio and Miguel ELEVEN MINUTES to get to the New World. And the entirety of the thime before that we spend it with them as characters to develop their relationship and how they bounce off each other.

We also had an entire discussion on how to establish long-lasting friendships without dialogue within a few seconds by focusing on how Tulio and Miguel give each other shit and shove each other around but how this is a sign of endearment more than antagonism because the other lets them get away with it and it’s obvious this is a common interaction.

Also the established the entire mythology of the entire movie in the very first minute and a half doing away with almost any exposition needed when they reach the city. So we all know what’s going on and what’s at stake without any of the Mayan priests having to “As you know” it at each other

The intro leaves out the lines of the song “But all this was granted for only one millennium” though which is only on the soundtrack. A bit of a mistake because this actually explains why the priest and chief are so eager to please Tulio and Miguel. They’re trying to stop them from smiting the city into oblivion by proving themselves to the gods.

Not that it matters because the chief figures out Miquel and Tulio are just mortal men and just decides not to rat them out because they’re a positive influence on the city.

Can we please please pLEASe talk about Trolls more

Like seriously look at the characters

we have a character who is not only a (lets face it) single father in some essence, but certainly doesn’t stick to most “movie-skinny” body standards.

Cooper, a character who is majorly different from the rest of the cast, with dreads and uneven teeth

Harper may be a minor character but she is rocking that heterochromia 


Not skinny, monobrow, long nails, jagged teeth and still won the guy over

He is literally the KING and he has never even HEARD of body standards, pimples and all

if you say DJ doesn’t have dreads i will throw a banana peel in your general direction

??? conjoined twins???? that are??? fashionistas??? and??? have?? piercings??? where was this???? when i was a kid????? also Chenille definitely has a tattoo on her ankle
