Fox and Talen look into the long-form history of the conflicted almost-traditionally-animated 2010 Animated Canon smash Tangled. We talk about an alternate viewing technique, the marketing history of ‘four quadrants’ storytelling, and inevitably get distracted by the (really quite good) TV series.
Disney returns to traditional animation with 2009’s The Princess And The Frog. Swimming through the foggy waters of the bayous, Fox and Talen consider if there’s any reason this movie somehow didn’t quite hit the same notes as other movies that added to the Princess canon, or if there was some reason audiences missed it (racism). There’s a spooky villain, a Lion King tie in and an alligator playing a trumpet, and yet, there’s still some uncomfortable Protestant bullshit.
Welcome to Season Six of the Disney Animated Canonball, the era of Centrist Disney Liberal Bullshit! Approaching the now, our recent memories, of these movies that we did not watch as children but instead have been sharing with the children in our lives, we get real mad at realising just how little Disney actually does for all of its importance and power!
