Merida, from the animated movie Brave, has just been inducted into the pantheon of Disney Princesses. As the daughter of a king and the star of a Disney/Pixar movie, she does seem like an obvious choice. The only problem is that prior to being officially crowned as a Disney Princess, she was given a makeover.
In Brave, Merida has messy, curly hair to match her rebellious personality. She wears a long, plain dress, looks like normal girl in her early teens, and is seldom seen without her bow and arrow. Disney’s “Princess” Merida tells a different story: flowing hair, a more “adult” figure and facial features, and an off-the-shoulder dress with sparkly details. Instead of having a quiver full of arrows slung around her hips, she accessorizes with a stylish belt.
Brave fans are far from happy about this new development, but few are as annoyed as Merida’s original co-creator, Oscar-winning director Brenda Chapman… [READ MORE]

A few months ago a couple of my friends told me they were going to start a video production company to make abstract videos with “paint and water and stuff”. I was like, OK. That’s nice. But today they released their first commissioned work and it’s TOTALLY GREAT. I can’t believe this was made in their kitchen where I have spent many a night sleeping on the floor on a pile of laundry!! How did they just teach themselves how to make a film, IDEK.
BTW, you can follow them on Twitter @Splingfilm, and you can see some of their illustrators other work here! :)

“The character design of Flynn came from the process which was called the “hot man meeting” by Nathan Greno and Byron Howard, during which they set up a meeting with all of the female employees of the studio in one room and asked them for their opinions of what made a man good looking in order to create Flynn’s character design with features such as eye color, hair color and style and body type. Video footage showed concept art and photos of various male celebrities, including Johnny Depp, Hugh Jackman, Brad Pitt, David Beckham and Gene Kelly on the walls of the room. Director Byron Howard said they wanted to make Flynn “the most handsome, most attractive male lead Disney has ever had.”
“The hot man meeting” is now my second favorite animation design story, after the one about how Pixar animators working on the Dug team for Up had “fat dog day” where they basically went to a shelter and were like “please bring out your fattest dogs,” and then they hung out with the fattest jolliest available dogs, all day.
Can we please talk for about three hours about how angry - ANGRY, not disappointed - I was when my parents broke it to me that Acme wasn’t real?
You can buy an acme catalogue though.
D-d-d-did you ever wonder
Why we had to run for shelter
When the promise of a brave new world
Unfurled beneath the clear blue sky?
I love this scene so much.
Would some eye ointment help?
this gifset is all kinds of perfection
