I think this goes without saying, but SPOILER WARNING for anyone who hasn't watched it yet.
Olaf's Frozen Adventure: the next chapter in the Frozen saga. As a massive Frozen fan, I was eagerly anticipating this new short film. However, it was really poorly received by audiences, and has actually been removed from theatre showings of Coco. I was desperate to see it before Christmas, but I don't have ABC. So I found a...erm...completely not illegal (gulp) website which was showing Olaf's Frozen Adventure.
So, what happens in this short film? After a little bit of dialogue, we get to our first song of the short, called "Ring in the Season", where Anna and Elsa sing about their excitement to celebrate Christmas. However, after the song ends, ev…Read more >
Hey guys. I'm currently sat at home, off school, feeling sick and bored out of my mind, so I thought I'd write another blog. In this one, I'm gonna discuss my favourite villains from Disney films. When ranking these villains, I've considered how much I enjoy watching them, and how well they fit in to their film. I'm only including villains from WDAS films, so no Pixar, live action, or other stuff. Enjoy!
I've always thought of King Candy as a somewhat underrated villain. At the start, he comes across as quite silly and fun, but ends up as a cruel, harsh murderer (well, attempted murderer). This is a very big jump, but it makes sense, and this transiton is handled very well in the film. He was funny, smart, manipulative, and…

I've recently been rewatching some of my favourite Disney scenes on Youtube, and it gave me an idea for my next blog. In this blog, I'm gonna be sharing my favourite scene from each of my top ten Disney films. Firstly, I will need to make a few things clear:
- Only WDAS films are included.
- This list is in order of how much I like the film, not the scene.
- Only one scene per film, plus a few honourable mentions.
- If you keep up with my "Reviewing Every Disney Film" series, then you may have noticed that some of the rankings have changed. This is due to some recent rewatches.
- I haven't seen every WDAS films. If a scene is missing, it's possible that I haven't seen the film yet.
- SPOILER WARNING.
- This is MY opinion. If a film isn't listed,…Read more >
I was recently watching a Youtube video from PhantomStrider on the darkest Disney moments (Check it out here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5X1sih_X1iw) and I came across a comment which said: "See this is what made Disney good before, making these scary and dark moments in their films now it's all sunshine and happiness which is so boring" (You have to scroll down quite a bit to find it, but it's there). This comment had over 100 likes last time I checked. People seem to think that Disney has become too politically correct and are too scared to put dark scenes and themes into their films. This view always annoys me as it simply isn't true. Now of course, Disney hasn't made a film as dark as The Hunchback of Notre Dame in recent times, b…Read more >
A couple of days ago, Disney announced that they're upcoming feature film Gigantic, scheduled for a 2020 release, was no longer in development. My initial reaction was "wow, that's a shame", but after having a bit of time to think about it, I feel like there's more to it that needs to be said.
Firstly, it hasn't actually been completely cancelled. It has been shelved, meaning that they are halting the development of the film. This means that there is a chance that they'll revisit the idea later on. However, it is extremely unlikely that it will be released within the next few years.
So why has it been shelved? Well, Ed Catmull has said this:
"It’s impossible to know when we begin a project how the creative process will unfold, and sometimes…Read more >
