I just watched The Little Mermaid and I'm proud of it.
I have always been a fan of Disney. I grew up watching Disney classics, Mickey Mouse and Ducktales. And at one phase in my life, a recent one at that, I wanted to be an animator.
There was always something about the early Disney classics that were so captivating and enchanting. Perhaps I'm a girly girl and I always fall for fairytales, but I'd like to think that it's the drawings that kept reeling me back after all these years.
Snow White and the Seven Dwarves was utterly beautiful. Snow White was cherubic and innocent, and pretty much a child as she should be.
But the later cartoons put more emphasis on CGI and I stopped watching Disney cartoons totally. The characters were so... angular. They became utterly unfamiliar to me.
Then this came back.
Too beautiful. The thought of Rococo in Disney just makes me wish it's 2010 now and this movie is out tomorrow and I'm in Disneyland with front row tickets to watch it.
Now I wanna be an animator all over again. This is what I'm talking about. Beautiful drawings and a story with heart.
