I feel like people don't talk enough about how insane the ending of Kung Fu Panda is.
There's an almost-universal truism in kids' movies that the hero can't kill anyone. Not even the Big Bad, no matter how warranted it is in the moment or how much the audience wants it. You simply can't do that. Heroes don't kill.
There are exceptions, but this truism is especially universal in the studio that's practically synonymous with kids' films: Disney.
That's why so many Disney villains end up accidentally killing themselves. Usually by falling off of something:

I can only think of four heroes in the entire Disney catalog that deliberately, intentionally choose to kill a sapient, intelligent villain, and all of them were self-defensive and in the heat of the moment, where sparing the villain wasn't an option:

(Note: I have seen most Disney movies, but not all of them)
....and then Dreamworks came along, said "fuck that," and had their goofy, lovable Jack Black character ice a motherfucker just 'cause.
Po has already completely won the fight. The day has been saved. He has Tai Lung at his mercy.
Tumblr media
And Po's not even reluctant about it. There's no burden of responsibility. They didn't just have Po kill, they had him enjoy it because his method of murder is so wicked cool.
Po is a hero in a kids' movie who not only kills his villain, but fucking executes him. All with that signature Dreamworks smile on his face:

I have gazed into the abyss, and the abyss said "skadoosh."

“When learning to draw anything,” animators Frank Thomas and Ollie Johnston observe, “it is important that the artist go to the source. Afterward he can make any use of his knowledge that he chooses, but in the beginning he must study the real object. Nothing matches the learning that comes from feeling an animal’s bones and muscles and joints, to discover how they are put together and how far they can move in any direction; it is always surprising.”

Things about Encanto only a colombian can tell you.
I love how ethnically diverse the cast is, considering colombia is one of the most ethnically diverse countries of latin america (i think only after brazil) the ambiance of the movie is of the zona cafetera, where most people are white so im really pleased to see they included brown and afrocolombians.
I also like that the costume design is inspired by different colombian regions, the kid with the hat is wearing a Sombrero vueltiao, typical from the colombian coast, as it is the rest of his outfit, then the boy next to him is wearing a ruana, and I inmediately think of Boyaca and the little girl next to him with the dress is more typically dressed like someone from El Eje Cafetero, where the movie is set. I've seen the blouse the little black girl is wearing before but i cant remember where and finally the little boy next to her is wearing a guayabera, which is a formal shirt also worn in the Colombian coast. update: Maribel’s outfit  colorful skirt specifically reminds me of Santander and the little black girl’s outfit is a typical cundiboyacense dress! (i don’t know if dress is the right word, im fighting against the lenguage here)

There is a chiguiro with baby chiguiros and a Tapir and a Colombia Guacamaya and it watered my crops, improved my notes and cleared my skin. I fucking love it.

When the Vallenato started playing i fucking cried, its a rythm originated in Colombia as a mish mash of our african, indigenous and spanish ancestry and the sound of the acordeon gave me CHILLS. (Would recommend Todo de cabeza from Calet Morales if you speak spanish and are heartbroken)
The white cumbia dress is very recognizable, i wished they had used a San Juanero dress, which is way prettier and would've fit right in with the aesthetic, but since the soundtrack seems to be heavely composed of Vallenato it would look out of place, at least for us Colombians. Look for videos of San Juan ero on Youtube is a beautiful dance, my grandmother's dream always was for me to compete on the San Juanero pageant but ummm...I've never had the amount of grace and poise those ladies have lol.

The entire house is colombian inspired, but this is a detail inspired specifically on my hometown, the flowered balconies of Cartagena.

And the alpargatas 🥲, typically worn on the interior of Colombia

Luca: calls le nonne “stupido”
Me: *holds my breathe in Italian*
The kid is lucky to be in one piece. Speaking from experience, you NEVER want to face the wrath of a nonna, never mind multiple.

I don’t like how many people are calling Raya the “redemption” of Kelly Marie Tran.
For it to be a redemption, it implies she had to have done something bad. And she never did a damn thing.
It’s not a redemption, it’s her well deserved rise and Disney treating her as they should have from the start. All hail the queen.

Once again, apologies for lack of updates and general inactivity! It’s only just recently I’ve had time for personal work. This is one of ‘em!
Basically a tribute to my favorite dinosaur, and all it’s multiple interpretations, inspirations and creatures derived from it.

61 disney movies (including next year’s)
34 disney movies with human protagonists (even if the human is turned into an animal in the movie. I didn’t count 101 Dalmatians but I did count lilo and stitch as the only duo of protagonists. I counted only protagonists, if I had counted deuteragonists only kida would be added from a movie not represented above, maybe esmeralda too)
13/34 disney movies with poc protagonists (again, counting with next year’s cause we know Ethan is gonna be bi racial)
Keep em coming disney
I think I would personally love to see a movie set in Japan, or those amazing jungles in Africa, ancient Egypt, India… idk. Or maybe a contemporary or futuristic setting where the characters just happen to be poc
