the movie frozen

Disney animators: Awe, this will be a cute little Easter egg to put in the movie

Die hard Disney fans mapping out conspiracy theories, multiple universes, timelines, and assassination plots:

This video explores how Disney uses languages in songs throughout several of its movies, including Moana, Frozen, Brother Bear, Lilo and Stitch, and Pocahontas.  

Some things I learned from watching?  

  • The difficulties of translating songs because of syllable differences between languages
  • Moana’s We Know The Way seamlessly transitions between Tokelauan and English without changing the melody - something new to Disney 
  • How songs sung by characters on screen vs. songs sung off screen in native languages can convey culture to an audience
  • Some songs in Brother Bear were sung in Iñupiat but by a Bulgarian choir 
  • Nani sings Aloha’Oe to Lilo, a song about farewells written by Queen Lili'uokalani, Hawaii’s last monarch 
  • A lot of Native American music is sung with vocables:  syllables that don’t have linguistic meaning but are significant as lyrics for music 
  • Big Hero 6: treats emotional trauma seriously, rather than brushing it off
  • The Good Dinosaur: assures kids that having fears and anxiety is okay but you need to control it and not have it ruin your life
  • Inside Out: explains emotions well enough for children's therapy offices to use it as an example
  • Zootopia: addresses racism in a family-friendly and easy to understand way, so much so that even adults understand it better
  • Frozen: teaches young girls that they don't always need a prince to save them, sometimes they can rely on their family just as much
  • Society: but they're just kids movies :/

Did anyone take note of this? He’s talking about Toni Bevell, but more to the point: Dean’s seen Frozen. Do you know how happy this makes me? It’s not just Dory. Just how many recent Disney movies have you seen, Dean? Please tell me you’ve watched Cars

So in the 2017 Beauty and the Beast, Josh Gad plays Lefou, Gaston’s bumbling companion.

Josh Gad is also the voice of Frozen’s infamous snowman, Olaf.

AND I CAN  BET ALL OF TUMBLR THAT THE REASON FOR THAT IS SO DISNEY CAN DO 

Come back to this post in 2017, SEE IF IT DIDN’T HAPPEN

so apparently Frozen’s studio team went to Norway and parts of the film were based of of it. Also Norwegian, Just Yes.  

new head canon that Tord watches movies in Norwegian when everyone’s in bed

Tom: Oi, Commie, what are you doing watching T.V this late at night?-

Tom: Is it in a different language??? where are the subtitles??
