Little Disney Things #1

9 Apr

One thing I love about animation is the details. You know, those things you don’t notice the first, second, maybe even third viewing. Now, this is an experience that is found in all art forms. But for me personally, there’s something about discovering something in a Disney film, even though you’ve seen gazillions of times Eureka!

I’m a big fan of The Princess and the Frog. I was so excited to see it, and my friends and I went opening night. We were in high school, and we took up a whole row! I was happy to go to New Orleans a few months later. Great city, and Disney captured part of its charm. I also love the Jazz Age, so that’s another reason why I feel connected to that film.

Anyway, Dr. Facilier (The Shadow Man) is one of the coolest Disney villains, In my opinion.

So today I was on tumblr, and I learned something about Dr. Facilier that I didn’t know before. As he is a Witch Doctor, he can do all sorts of supernatural things (like interact with his shadow).

I wasn’t observant enough to figure this out on my own, so I’m totally going to source you who was observant enough: get-fabulous shared this little factoid about Dr. Facilier.

Notice the wallpaper behind him. The designs change to skull and crossbones wherever his shadow hits! Very spooky and sinister (fitting for someone who practices Voodoo). I never noticed that before!

Anyway, that’s all I have for now. I have two essays and a presentation due in the next week at school. Plus taxes. Plus choosing what University I’m going to next fall. So I won’t have anything posted in the next couple of weeks. But I have some thoughts on articles to post once I’m finished, so look forward to that! Remember that presentation I mentioned at the beginning of this paragraph? Well, it’s about Disney. So I’ll abridge that here, as well as my List of Favorite Disney films. Have a great week everybody!
