Let me just tell you something about this final scene. I sat through this whole movie thoroughly enjoying every last little bit of it. I even made a running motion when the first two gifs happened. When the movie finished my boyfriend was very very quiet and he looked a little sad. I was very confused because it was a fantastic movie. He turned to me and asked “is that suppose to represent how our education system doesn’t make enough accommodations for [mentally] slower students?" Monster’s University was a little deeper than I thought
TUMBLR SHUT UP HE IS A SLUG. The literal message is HE IS A SLUG WHO IS SLOW LIKE SLUGS IN NATURE SO STOP.
It’s always about the universal relatability of the story. I don’t want to alienate anybody? I don’t want anybody to go, “Oh, that’s not a movie for me,” right? I want people to come and see the movie and go, “Oh yeah, it’s a fish. I’m not a fish. But I know exactly what that fish was going through.”
What if it’s not everything I dreamed it would be?
Just keep swimming.
“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.
man would i love to be a pixar animator
Don’t forget Brave’s Kilt Fridays where all the animators wore kilts to work every friday during production.
This is why I want to work for these fun guys
"You must not let anyone define your limits because of where you come from. Your only limit is your soul."
