she's not a disney star but i love her so

I don’t think people give this generation’s of Disney Channel Stars enough credit. Like I said before, we have Cameron Boyce who’s white passing but speaks out about his black heritage and roots. We have Dove Cameron who’s a fucking angel, literally what I refer to as this generation of Disney’s Hilary Duff and who speaks up about girl power (plus, she and her boo Ryan are engaged and the cutest Disney couple since Zanessa). Zendaya, the BEYONCE of Disney Channel right now, who slays the game all fucking day and basically runs her own shit, do her own thang and pointing out REPRESENTATION. Skai Jackson, need I say more? Who wouldn’t love this child? ROWAN FUCKING BLANCHARD who vocally supports and shows so many respect to LGBT+, #BlackLivesMatter, Feminism and speaks out on so many fucking issues that literally she (and Zendaya) is like one of the very few Disney Channel stars that speak on all of these issues and more. We have Sofia Carson, who’s representing the Latina community of Disney and tbh it’s been since WOWP since we had that. Not to mention the cast of Stuck in the Middle, clearly that’s representation of a big Latina/Hispanic family that Disney has not done in years. Sabrina Carpenter, who’s voice is like a breath of fresh air, one of the talented voices that Disney has ever consumed. And there’s so much more and so many current DC Stars that are bringing a new light to what was a dim Disney Channel. People are so quick to not like what they see because it isn’t what it used to be for them. Well, I believe and I know these stars are talented and bringing new material to a growing world and network.

  • What she says: I’m fine
  • What she means: Hayley Kiyoko has written multiple songs about loving girls that, unlike the work of other artists I've grown up listening to, don’t rely on fetishising them for the purpose of men in order to appeal to a general audience. She has also featured a trans woman in her recent video, who has a cute and happy ending. It makes me so happy that young girls will grow up hearing these songs, especially from a former Disney star, and hopefully know that they are not wrong or just there to please men. That they can think that girls are pretty and want to be with them and that this is okay. Young trans girls will see that they can have happy endings, that they can meet people who care about them. That they can form positive relationships. I hope this continues with other celebrities. I hope more girls are growing up and loving who they love. I hope they’re loving themselves. They deserve that. They should always deserve that.
Reasons why Elena of Avalor is Seriously Amazing
  • First Latina Disney princess (obviously)
  • Amazing and catchy Hispanic-inspired music
  • Beautiful designs and animation
  • ELENA HERSELF IS REALLY AWESOME
  • She actually has to learn about leadership in order to earn her title of queen
  • No romantic interest
  • It’s mostly about Elena’s relationship with her family and friends
  • She makes mistakes and learns from them
  • It was literally too good for Disney Junior so they bumped it up to Disney Channel
  • REPRESENTATION
  • THERE’S LITERALLY SO MANY DIFFERENT LATIN-AMERICAN CULTURES REPRESENTED IN THIS SHOW
  • AND IT’S ALL SO RESPECTFUL AND AUTHENTIC
  • Not exactly a reason, but my sister literally leaped of joy because not only did Elena look like her, but she also speaks Spanish
  • Diverse and race-appropriate voice cast
  • Guest stars so far include George Takei and Titus Burgess (it doesn’t get any better than that)
  • MATEO
  • EVERY CHARACTER, HONESTLY
  • The show is made with a lot of love and it really shows
  • Overall, I’m really glad my (and many others’) culture is being represented so well
  • You should really watch it
  • It’s amazing

Carrie Fisher meant so much to me as someone who lives with bipolar disorder. She showed everyone that, while it may not be easy, it is something that people like her, people like me, can live with.

I never saw Star Wars when I was younger. But I knew Princess Leia. Of course I knew who Princess Leia was. Whenever my friends and I played Star Wars, I was always Princess Leia. And I learned about how she took no shit. She wasn’t a damsel in distress - she was a boss who could take care of herself, thank you very much. And that was exactly who I wanted to be. In a world of Disney Princesses, I aspired to be Princess Leia.

She was a fighter and an incredible role model for women everywhere. She was a badass, she was brilliant, she was awe-inspiring. Her wit, sarcasm, and sheer perseverance is what made so many love her. She showed that with enough willpower, you can conquer your demons, and make them your bitch.

“I don’t want my life to imitate art - I want my life to be art.”

May the force always be with you, Carrie.

My favorite thing about Rowan?? Is that she’s a human you know? She doesn’t try looking perfect. You’ve seen her go to parties wearing simple clothes with no makeup. Its refreshing because for Disney stars image is everything. I love it!!! She’s gonna do so many great things in the future and I can’t wait to see her get more recognition

let’s talk about daisy ridley okay bc this girl’s first film was star wars?? the biggest movie franchise of all time and she had no knowledge of what to expect coming onto a project this big but she absolutely killed it to the point where her character is so loved it has completely smashed the expectations of disney - and this girl is still the most humble and open person despite being cast in something that big at 21 years old. you literally can’t help but smile at her, and on top of the fact shes cute as hell she’s decided to go back to school to get a psychology degree whilst episode 8 is in production AND she’s producing an awesome movie about a young mongolian girl that totally deserves the attention daisy can bring to it. daisy ridley’s first movie role was the main character of a film that has completely busted records and im so glad it happened to someone this awesome

Avengers X Star Wars

Nu-Tasha Romanova- Zabrak Widow

Yo, what if the Avengers existed in the Star Wars universe?

Black Widow would probably be some kind of Rebel Alliance spy with a dark past as an Empire Assassin. I imagine her as a Zabrak, like Darth Maul, but maybe half-human. Her sharp horns symbolize how lethal she is. 

I love the Clone Wars and Rebels so I imagine her in that style. Maybe a little bit of Disney Animation too? Coming soon, the rest of the Avengers x Star Wars! :D

Here is what happen when I let my daughter choose her own clothes/Shoes/Toys

She had the choice between these and Frozen, Star Wars, Minnie the Mouse and Disney princess. 

I love that she has her very own personality, with her own taste.

The cashier actually asked her if it was for “her little brother”. If looks could kill, she’d be dead lol. Olivia didn’t mind, she was so proud to say it was for her, and that she picked it herself !

Toys and Clothes have no gender !

Nick Jonas on Miley Cyrus: ‘I’m proud of her’

“I don’t have a relationship with her now, really, but that’s not because we have any bad blood – we just sort of run in different circles.” 

“I still think 'Wrecking Ball’ is one of the best pop songs of the last 10 years. And you know, she’s always been outspoken and authentic to who she is, so it was only a matter of time before she really owned that, and I’m proud of her.”

Beauty & the Beast Tropes and Reylo Analysis (Part 1)

So I love Beauty and the Beast, and after watching the movie for the upteenth time, I noticed at a bunch of tropes that just screamed Reylo throughout. Smart, brave brunette meets angry brooding monster who’s desperate to keep her because she reminds him of humanity? Where have I seen this love story before?

Not all tropes apply to Kylo Ren or Rey but I was amused of how similar some of them are. There’s already posts on Tumblr about how she looks at him when he takes his mask off, parallels between TFA and Beauty and the Beast etc. I don’t know if anyone else has done a full trope analysis (but w/e) In any case, good work, Disney. You might have just set up one of the most epic romances I’ve seen in years.

All tropes are from tvtropes.org (that place rakes TFA with a fine tooth comb harder than most of the posts I’ve seen on Tumblr and it’s great). Here we go:

“You’re my guest”

This is a given. Kylo Ren is someone we love and love to hate. He’s been psychologically messed up by Snoke since he was a baby and has trouble venting his anger healthily. He killed his dad and overall, yeah he is an asshole in this movie.

He hates showing his adorable baby face in front of Snoke and Hux and he tries to be show his sweet side to Rey (but just comes off as a bit obsessive and he’s probably ruined his chances until their next encounter.)

(We all know how deep Adam Driver’s voice is. It is hot as hell. I’ve noticed that Ren speaks with a softer, higher pitch around Rey than around his dad, Snoke and Hux).

If you look carefully at how Ren walks, he’s hunched over and stomps around, unlike his idol Darth Vader, whose posture demands respect and has a clean marching pattern.

Kylo likes to destroy shit when he’s pissed. This is a given.

Rey speaks to Ren as if she isnt afraid of him and was willing to fight back in a dangerous lightsaber duel even after seeing the damage done to Finn. She’s super sweet otherwise.

THIS IS FCKIN IMPORTANT. I don’t even have to mention the number of dark/light metaphors the movie had, it was brimming with it.

If I find anymore I’ll post it. I’d like to know if you guys noticed any other tropes, it’d be cool to find out :3

waywardkingdomsoldier  asked:

mara loved luke so frigging much and she was so strong and she was just so frigging perfect and disney IS LIKE NAH XD SHE AINT SHIT if skymom isn't her gonna be pissed okay

they loved each other so much and i will fight with anyone who disagress!!. they will always an iconic otp and probably the best otp of star wars. their relationship is just so beautiful and it’s really sad that disney kicked her out of canon just to please the new generations cos it seems they don’t like mara at all *sighs*. at this point i know that mara will never be the skymom in the new canon, but she will always be one of the most iconic characters in the star wars universe but i hope that one day we can have a mini series about her???? oh plz @ netflix just DO IT!!. i think that could be truly amazing and mara fans deserve this. she deserves more love from the fandom. 

So I’m a guy, and I like Star Wars.
I’ve never seen the original movies. I like the pretty spaceships and I love the ride at Disney and I know the characters yadda yadda…
The Force Awakens is the first Star Wars movie I’ve seen (and I really liked it!)
When I say I like Star Wars, male fans say ‘okay’. When I forget a detail or character name, they don’t mind. They assume I’m forgetful.
When a woman says she likes Star Wars to those same fans, they make her take a pop quiz and practically write an essay on it.
If she forgets a detail or character name, she’s a 'fake feel girl’ and 'clearly only saying she likes it for attention’
If a girl says she’s never seen the movies until TFA, she is shamed and excluded from the fanbase.
Why?
What makes it okay to shame her but not me?
The same thing happens with every male-dominated fandom.
It needs to stop.

“I look just like Krei’s assistant in BH6, and my little step-sister goes nuts and screams “Stop the movie!” whenever she’s onscreen so she can point at her and go “it’s you! You’re a movie star!” I love how such a tiny thing has made her so happy. These are the kind of Disney memories I hope we get to make more of before she gets ‘too old’ for the magic.”

THE BEST EPISODE YET

majesty. pure, glorious majesty. where do i even begin. i - i love thee, Protector of Concord Dawn, and let me count the ways.

  • SABINE. SABINE, MY DEAR, finally some much-needed characterization!!
    • Mandalorian backstory + Sabine’s penchant for exploding things and unashamedly killing people! so unashamed that DISNEY, of ALL THINGS, has her use the k-word! the un-aliving word! yes, that word!!
    • SHE CHALLENGES THAT HALF-BEARDED MOTHERHUGGER TO A FRIGGIN DEATH MATCH AND SHE IS 100% SERIOUS ABOUT IT.
      • this woman is a WARRIOR through and THROUGH and it shines through in every aspect of the episode i need to write a lengthy meta about it, will do sometime
      • mAN, who else wants to see Sabine arbitrarily challenge randos to fights to the death because they do something relatively minor to other members of the Ghost???
        • ‘cause, WOW she’s reticient, but DAYUM is the woman PROTECTIVE
        • she is now one of my new faves
    • “You got to blow stuff up, you feel better now?” Kanan grumbles, and it’s awesome.
