"Marinette and Adrien are two extraordinary junior high students. Close friends in the daily life, unknown team-mates the night. They transform into superheroes: Ladybug and Chat Noir. Missioned by Fu, the Guardian of the Orb, to capture evil creatures – the Akumas – led by Butterfly to transform anyone into a super villain and so to save Paris!
Right now Marinette will always have to struggle to juggle her two identities and her objectives: win Adrien’s heart in the daily life and stop the Butterfly in the Night. Maybe the second one is the easier for this reserved girl…Thanks to her earrings where Tikki - her Kwami with magical power – resides she is always ready to transform and to face enemies.” — A.B International Distribution
What you mean to say is that James Baxter is perfect <3 The man is an animation god/legend. FOR OBVIOUS REASONS. In fact, the man is especially renown for his work on “Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron”
That’s why in an episode of Adventure Time, there is an incredibly well animated horse who rolls around on his ball and says his name “Jaaaaaaaaames Baxter!” and brings cheer to everyone around him. Finn and Jake become jealous of his ability to make people smile and try to mimic him, find their own way of spreading joy and then finally accept that sometimes you can’t be as good as some other people at some things. It was a commentary by Pendleton Ward about how he always wanted to be a legend just like James, but in the end you have to do you own thing and achieve greatness in your own way.
Bring Me the Head of Charlie Brown - (1986) Jim Reardon
A student at CalArts when this was made, Reardon would eventually graduate, and move on to work on such series as Mighty Mouse: The New Adventures, Tiny Toon Adventures, and The Simpsons - the latter for which he served as a director and storyboard consultant.
He was also nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay for WALL-E (2008) at the 81st Academy Awards.
Now considered a “cult classic” of animation, Bring Me the Head of Charlie Brown can be seen in its entirety here.
Ever heard of The Snow Queen? Itâs a famous fairytale about a girl who rescues her brother from the powerful Snow Queen. Letâs see how Disney diminishes female power in 4 easy steps.
First the incredibly sexist “girls are hard to animate because emotions” bullshit, and now more revisionism to get male asses into theater seats.
I wish they had gone more into the industry and it’s treatment of women, both real and otherwise, as many people seem to be under the impression that either the animation industry is very egalitarian or there are no women animators. But it’s a good starting point, I suppose.
Also on a side note, Kai is Gerda’s love interest, not her brother, for anyone who read the article and saw that bit.
