"Walt Disney’s grandniece Abigail Disney — a filmmaker, scholar and social activist — addressed Streep’s comments last Friday on her Facebook page, according to The Hollywood Reporter. ”If you are going to have mixed feelings about a family member (and we all do) take it from me, you really need to be as honest as possible about those feelings, or else you are going to lead yourself into many a blind alley in life!!” she wrote.

She continued her candid views about Walt Disney, who is the subject of the current film Saving Mr. Banks, starring Tom Hanks and Emma Thompson.


"… Anti-Semite? Check. Misogynist? OF COURSE!! Racist? C’mon he made a film (Jungle Book) about how you should stay ‘with your own kind’ at the height of the fight over segregation! As if the ‘King of the Jungle’ number wasn’t proof enough!! How much more information do you need?" Abigail wrote. “But damn, he was hella good at making films and his work has made billions of people happy. There’s no denying it,” she added.

In another Facebook post, Abigail explained her position further. "I feel I have to clarify. I LOVED what Meryl Streep said. I know he was a man of his times and I can forgive him, but Saving Mr Banks was a brazen attempt by the company to make a saint out of the man."
lmao his own flesh and blood is less of a disney apologist than some people on this site

Marc Davis - Disney’s Chanticleer

Out of all the Nine Old Men, I’ve always found Marc Davis’ work inspiring in terms of character development and draftsmanship as you can clearly see in these character drawings for the “unwanted” Chanticleer project. From what I’ve read, Marc and Disney Story man, Ken Anderson were truly in love with the project and were hoping for it to see the light of day. Sadly, neither Walt or Woolie Reitherman, Head of Animation Production at the time,were very gung-ho on the idea. So even though Marc and Ken worked tirelessly on the over-all presentation, the project was scrapped. Which to me, is a real shame. Because you can tell that Marc put his heart and soul into these characters, almost to the point where you forget that they are “just drawings”.

Disney Concept Art by John Hench (June 29, 1908 – February 5, 2004) John Hench is my all time favorite Disney Imagineer. His mid-century modern conceptualization of both Tomorrowland and the pavilions at the 1964-65 New York World’s Fair are among my favorites. If and when Disney tackles refurbishing Walt Disney World’s Tomorrowland, I really hope they pay a massive homage to this brilliant artist.

Storyboards and concept art on what would have been the first Disney Short to have every Disney Lady interacting with each other! But it was never made after the 2D animation deportment was shut down. The music would have been done by Alan Menken, who was very excited about the project (that would later be shelved…)

Why is Disney trying to get me to kill myself

wow a story that every girl would want to see? yeah let’s shelve it and make a movie about ugly fucking planes to sell more shitty toys to 6 year old boys 

Haha, I would have liked to see this. S:

oh god i started tearing up why did life have to be so cruel. 

where’s ariel?

sackbutsoliloquy:

I was only thinking…
In Disney’s Pinocchio, the writers added a character named Jiminy Cricket. The term “Jiminy crickets!” was used in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Disney’s first full length animation, as an expression of surprise, and it was a current bit of slang around that time. 
When the artist created Jiminy, though, his body was colored green, not black. In effect, he looks more like a grasshopper than a cricket.

I was thinking about the artists’ reasoning for this. 
I wonder if they thought that making Jiminy a black colored character, he would come across as someone who would today be called a Person of Color. 
Just musing. Any thoughts?
