This was inevitable. i should probably quit while I’m ahead with the swapping thing (rly i should) but, i dont think i can help myself anymore. Especially cuz the Tenshinhan arc is one of my favorites (and so is tien kgjfhf) (now starring the late Joan Rivers as Master Shen)
because while there are people who will just see the movie, imagine all the people who are going to read the books because of the movie
imagine how many people are going to go to book stores and pick up their first every copy of unwind, and not have any idea of the journey of these three losers theyre about to read- and all the other losers theyre going to fall in love with throughout the series
imagine how you felt when you first read the series
imagine how lucky they are that they dont have to wait for any release dates
sure they didnt wait inbetween the books like a lot of us did but the waiting doesnt make us “better fans” because just by loving the book we’re all equal
but just imagine
imagine how many people will be introduced to the series and fall in love with the characters we love, hate who we hate, come up with new headcanons
This movie. This freaking movie, I honestly loved it.
Despite the occasional over the top cheesy parts (this also includes some of the songs, I mean, come on Disney you made it sound like crap from one of your shitty sitcoms). This movie had some great elements to it.
It showed and hinted at the abuse that Evie, Mal, Jay and Carlos OBVIOUSLY experience on the Isle of the Lost by their parents. (Never truly flat out discussed, but the museum scene, Ben and Mal’s date, and Mal and Evie’s conversation about being scared of their parent (possibly the most non vague mention) give a lot of points to that. All four also experience torn feelings at the beginning of the movie where they question all that their parents taught them about evil. (Mal is shown with the most conflict over this, but it’s expected as the main protagonist) Evie is freaking intelligent af without her mirror giving her the answers. Carlos and Jay’s relationship is freaking awesome Ben isn’t just a dunce, he actually finds out about the love spell, but he doesn’t get mad at Mal. He is very kind and loving towards her and knew his feelings for her. Mixed characters, POC’s and disabled representation. The “Be Our Guest” scene Dopey has a son, Doug, that is pretty smart (which makes me wonder if he is trying to be smart to make Dopey proud. Despite the possibility of having an inherited learning disability from his dad.) Doug doesn’t just see Evie as a pretty girl and tries to help her when he can. He knows she’s smart and has full faith in her. Also, he doesn’t become a dick or anything when Evie tries to go after Charming Jr., he still stays a friend and tries to approach her after the Family Day fiasco. Carlos and the dog. Jay learning to be on a team.The blitz of Jay, Carlos and Ben to win the game. The parallels Jay and Evie have to Aladdin and Snow White
But some things I didn’t enjoy so much:
Maleficent dancing and prancing like she is on Broadway. I mean, Mistress of Evil and such. Have you SEEN Sleeping Beauty? Lonnie. Lonnie. LONNIE! YOU ARE THE DAUGHTER OF FA MULAN AND SHANG. WHERE IS YOUR HONOR?! YOU SHOULD HAVE JUST NINJA KICKED THE DRAGON LIKE THE WARRIOR YOU ARE. Lack of magic use. (Only ones shown to use it are Evie (via magic mirror), Mal, Fairy Godmother, and Maleficent.) Anti-climatic fight, bit cliche. (Even Avalon high had better fighting and wasn’t anticlimatic.) The music should have been more Retro toward the styles used in the old movies, but with a modern twist (Example: Be Our Guest) Should have shown more villains in the beginning
Now what I want to happen:
Villains have escaped the Isle of the Lost and are causing trouble.
Fairy Godmother teaching Evie, Mal, and Nancy magic.
Magic being slowly reincorporated into modern science.
Jay meeting Aladdin and his kid(s) and they all hit it off immediately.
Mulan and Shang
Evie and Doug going on crazy adventures because Evie helps Mal with some spells and they have to go out and find ingredients.
A proud seven dwarfs meeting Evie and adoring that she is so much like Snow White.
Mal and Nacy sometimes causing trouble when they are practicing magic and sometimes accidentally transforming Jay and Ben into animals
More villains children coming to the mainland and trying to learn about good and evil
Children of Disney heroes and heroines becoming evil.
“The problem with time, I’ve learned, whether it’s those first two weeks I got to spend with you, or the final two months I got to spend with him, eventually time always runs out. I have no idea where you are out there in the world, John. But I understand that I lost the right to know these things long ago. No matter how many years go by, I know one thing to be as true as ever was - I’ll see you soon then.”
