(Well there goes my heart -sobs-)//I’m sorry!
(Aw no it’s ok haha just so many feels! Have you seen this one?
“Lilo and Stitch” 2002
Lilo plays a trick on the tourists.
IF YOU LIVED HERE YOU’D UNDERSTAND
I desperately need to understand
WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY
Was this scene cut from the movie??!!
Fucking christ, do you know what this would have done? What this would have meant to SO MANY people?? The truth of this is devastating. And to think it almost found it’s way into a DISNEY film??
The inclusion of this scene alone would have made it the greatest animated feature the company ever produced. Easily. And if you think that’s hyperbolic clearly you don’t understand.
No, really, if anyone knows why this was cut PLEASE let me know.
oh man WHY WOULD they cut this, this is so great, holy MOLY
It was clearly something the crew was very reluctant to get rid of if it made it all the way to rough-clean (and in a few scenes clean!), fully inbetweened animation. That is like, thousands and thousands of dollars and weeks (months?!) of labour. Maybe a reluctant producer decided they would alienate their white middle-class American audiences by making them feel “too guilty” and pressed them to drop it? It’s unfortunate, it’s one of the most honest accounts of racism in a Disney movie (which is why it’s believable that someone got uncomfortable and made a case to get it chopped)
Designing entertainment by committee for maximum marketability is probably the most heartbreaking process in Hollywood.
I’ve been seeing this around my dash and think it deserves some more recognition!
This shit is hilarious, too.
NO WAIT SHIT
I GET IT NOW
I GET WHY SHE WAS PHOTOGRAPHING TOURISTS AS A HOBBY
SHE WAS BEING FUCKING SATIRICAL AND OBJECTIFYING
IT’S NOT BECAUSE SHE’S A DUMB KID WITH A WEIRD HOBBY IT’S BECAUSE THEY DO THAT TO HER AND HER FRIENDS AND FAMILY LIKE SHE’S SOME KIND OF FUCKING THEME PARK CHARACTER AND SHE WANTS THEM TO KNOW HOW IT FEELS
HOLY FUCKING DICKS DISNEY WHY WOULD YOU CUT THIS
Holy hell this would have been GREAT!! I wish they didn’t cut this D:
the dangerous effects of not wearing a bra
ah yes my spirit animal
Good or evil. Black or white. Pirates or marines.
Too bad there are only shades of gray.
Which side will you choose?
Inspired by ♠.
What distinguishes One Piece among the prominently unopposed manga as of late (ie, the Big Three) is its ability to incorporate a number of mature, diverse themes rather realistically, while still somehow retaining a level of extraordinary entertainment without crossing into the borders of mindless, gory, bloody violence. Friendship, loss, discovery, tears are only among the very few. However, there is one subject/theme that is grossly overlooked due to its unspeakably enormous influence on the entire series in general, and yet is almost so invisible as a pushing force that one has to squint to see it the majority of the time: the sides.
One Piece does not conform to the monotonously stereotypical divisions of good and evil. There is no singular, major force that controls the darkness of the plot, and neither is there one force that heralds the saving light. It is relatable in the sense of distinct perspectives; what one would typically expect from a seemingly straightforward plot line is plunged into an abyss of dizzying turmoil. The protagonist is a pirate - selfish and yet passionately firm in his beliefs. Is it not a shallow assumption to say that the protagonist is a ‘good guy’, when pirates have generally been labeled with a less-than-apt reputations in history books? On the other side, the antagonist is the government - justice-bound and almost deliriously so. Again, is it not a shallow assumption to say that the antagonist (look up: a character who opposes the protagonist) is a ‘bad guy’, when the government only acts for the general well-being of its citizens?
But one cannot forget the pirates become the ‘bad guys’. Pirates become the ‘good guys’. The government becomes the ‘good guys’. The government becomes the ‘bad guys’.
… All depending on perspective. The question becomes: for whose means and for what purpose do they act as they do?
So really, are the pirates - like Luffy, who has acted out only for the sake of his nakama, or like Hody, who wished only to establish a dominance over the inferior human race - the bad guys? Are the marines - like Lucci, whose idea of justice is to eliminate weakness so as not to possibly provoke a precursor to further failures in the future, or like Coby, who is somewhat idealistically naive and yet open-minded about befriending the ‘enemy’ - the bad guys? Would it even be right to definitively categorize and limit either side to black and white?
Luffy. Hody. Shanks. Blackbeard. Law.
Lucci. Coby. Kuma. Garp. Kizaru.
Can you choose a side, when there aren’t any to begin with?
I’m scared of this
The Horse Of Death, obviously.
