The first sexy version of a regular controversy this season involves, surprisingly, Ursula from Disney’s The Little Mermaid. More
Have you ever rooted for the villain in a movie? Disney’s evil queens scared the crap out of me when I was a kid (true story: my first movie was Sleeping Beauty and I lost my shit and had to be removed in the first ten minutes), but now that I’m older and no longer threatened by strong female characters and loud noises, I think they’re kind of bad ass. I mean, who sounds more interesting: a dim bulb of a girl who keeps letting strangers into her house and using the poisoned things they give her, or a seasoned sorceress who knows how to make weapons and has probably fucked a lot of people?
In honor of this fact, artist Justin Turrentine has created a series of prints depicting what the endings of Disney movies would look like, had the woman-hating animators allowed the villains to achieve their goals. Spoiler alert: the villains look very happy More
Minnie Mouse, cartoon character beloved by children everywhere, was too fat for Lanvin. More
Snow White is just going to tear into a brain like an apple. Take that, Liberty Ross!
I’m a huge fan of twisted takes on beloved childhood icons. So when I saw the naughty Snow White picture that scorned wife Liberty Ross put up on Instagram in the wake of the (possibly staged) K-Stew cheating scandal last week, I wanted very badly to know who’d made it.
As it turns out, it’s by an artist by the name of José Rodolfo Loaiza Ontiveros, and he is quite prolific! According to his gallery, he puts Disney characters in familiar adult (and/or tabloid-y) situations as a “tribute to pop culture, fashion, animation, horror films and the undeniable attraction of celebrity.” You can see more of his work at his gallery’s website, or check out his show Disasterland in person if you’re currently in LA. (It opens tonight.) More
As long as the internet exists, there will be a market for Disney fanart. DeviantArt user Grodansnagel puts a Disney spin on Where Are They Now? with various princesses and their respective princes. Not to ruin anything, but the surprising result is they all have babies. Babies of differing ages and sizes! Some look like better parents than others, too. More
So, two things: 1) Disney is rereleasing Cinderella on Blu-ray and DVD this fall (the vault is a harsh mistress) and 2) they’ve teamed up with Christian Louboutin to create some real glass slippers. The designer will “put his own ‘magic touch’ on the shoes,” which we take to mean “a red sole.” More
The site Disneybound is really going to help you transition gently into adulthood… More
And they say Disney is a lifeless shell of its former self. More
There’s very little that you could put a camera on that I wouldn’t watch. More
Remember when, in Annie Hall, Woody Allen pointed out that even though you were supposed to love Snow White, he was always in love with The Evil Queen? Woody Allen knew what he was on about. Since we’ve established that loving a Disney princess indicates that you’re a hopeless neurotic, we figured we should come at this from the other side. Here’s what your favorite Disney villain says about how cool you are. More
Maybe the townspeople in every Disney movie were right. More
Who doesn’t look at Cinderella and think “well, she’ll be much more interesting when she goes through her Daphne Guinness phase and starts dying her hair silver and getting tattoos?” More
