(( Continuation of my Disney Prince Series, but this time with the “ladies” XD. As for names:
Row I: Charm, Joan, Philippa.
Row II: Aliah, Adalyn, Erica.
Row III: Harmonia, Phoibe, Navya.))
Adam/Adalyn still looks the same to me.
After seeing these awesome edits by “thecrownedheart”, I just had to make a few of my own. So here’s a few edited screenshots of our lovely Disney ladies… as men. :D
"He will be mine or he will burn!"
(( Frollo has always scared the shit out of me. He’s honestly the most terrifying and fascinating Disney villain in my books, and when I got old enough to understand his creepy fascination with Esmerelda… damn Frollo, calm down.
So… after listening to THIS incredible cover… I couldn’t help myself. Here’s my genderbent screenshot edits for “Frolla and Esmereldis”. XD ))
Dammit… Esmeralda looks SOOO sexy at the first pic!
Also, Click HERE to hear “God Help The Outcasts” in an amazing male version!
OMFG GUYS, A GORGEOUS MALE COVER FOR ESMERELDA! *squeals* Also, someone mentioned that “Frollo” is his last name… whoops… so here’s CLAUDIA Frollo. XD hehe.
I’D WATCH IT
BUT THIS IS LITERALLY PERFECT
"Dognapping!" Tsk, tsk, tsk. Can you imagine such a thing?
You made all the males attractive when I thought there was no hope for them. You, my good artist, are a miracle-worker.
You have made it so hard to fear these villains…Great now I wanna fuck a lion
That is one sexy lion~..(I REGRET NOTHING)
can we talk about this lady please? How she was an elderly, single woman who literally left all of her property to her cats and how the artists could have just made her a stereotypical crazy old cat lady but instead they made her absolutely fabulous and graceful and she still twirls in front of her mirror like she’s pretending to be a princess at age 60/70/80-something?
Pretending to be a princess? Girl, she a QUEEN.<3
Gaston really is the most terrifying Disney villain because he could be anyone in the world.
Later he convinces the whole town to set up his wedding with the knowledge that the would-be bride would be thrown into it. Everyone finds his creepy-ass tactics as cute and “boys will be boys” esque. So yeah, he is terrifying.
Yeah, the truly scary thing about Beauty and the Beast isn’t that Gaston exists, but that society fucking loves him. People who deride the movie by saying it’s about Stockholm Syndrome are ignoring that it’s actually about the various ways that truly decent people get othered by society. People don’t trust the Beast because of the way he looks, which only feeds his anger issues and pushes him further away. Gaston isn’t the only one who criticizes Belle for being bookish, either; the whole town says there must be something wrong with her. And her father gets carted off to a mental asylum for being just a little eccentric.
Howard Ashman, who collaborated on the film’s score and had a huge influence on the movie’s story and themes, was a gay man who died of AIDS shortly after work on the film was completed. If you watch the film with that in mind, the message of it becomes clear. Gaston demonstrates that bullies are rewarded and beloved by society as long as they possess a certain set of characteristics, while nice people who don’t are ostracized. The love story between Belle and the Beast is about them finding solace in each other after society rejects them both.
Notice how the Beast reacts when the whole town comes for him. He’s not angry, he’s sad. He’s tired. And he almost gives up because he has nothing to live for. But then he sees that Belle has come back for him, and suddenly he does. In the original fairy tale, the Beast asks Belle to marry him every night, and the spell is broken when she accepts. In the Disney movie, he waits for her to love him, because he cannot love himself. That’s how badly being ostracized from society and told that you’re a monster all your life can fuck with your head and make you stop seeing yourself as human.
Society rewards the bullies because we’ve been brought up to believe that their victims don’t belong. That if someone doesn’t fit in, then they have to be put in their place, or destroyed. And this movie demonstrates that this line of thinking is wrong. It’s so much deeper than a standard “be yourself” message, and that’s why it’s one of my favorite Disney movies.
