5 Reasons to Watch The Incredibles 2!

FINALLY the long awaited sequel for The Incredibles 2 is here (not for the UK yet, though ๐Ÿ˜ฆ ). I have seen so many amazing reviews and reactions to this movie that I cannot wait to see it for myself. I will sit in the cinema by myself, as long as I watch it!! However, some may not want to see it simply because they may not want to feel ‘let down’ or underwhelmed in any way. But I highly doubt anyone will be disappointed. Here are some reasons to watch The Incredibles 2...

You can see what happens with The Underminer.

I don’t know about you, but I’ve always wanted to know what happened with him! Did they fight in the street? If so, did they give away their identities? Or did we just completely misunderstand him? We’ll know soon!

You can see more of Jack-Jack’s powers.

From the trailer alone, it’s pretty obvious that his newfound powers will be one of the main plot lines for the movie. We can be sure that Bob will go through a lot of trouble to keep Jack-Jack still! It’ll be humorous but also interesting to see. Maybe he’ll burn the house down or impress the kid who was waiting for ‘something amazing [I guess],’ in the first movie.

Mr Incredible and Frozone taking care of Jack-Jack.

Relating to the previous point, it’ll be so funny to watch these two guys – who went ‘bowling’ together in the first movie – try to take care of a mad, crazy baby. It must have been hard enough taking care of an invisible and super fast babies, so imagine how hard it would be to take care of one that shoots lazers, and can basically shape-shift!

Meeting Frozone’s wife.

I really really reaaalllyyyyyyy hope we can see Frozone’s ‘greater good’ – what will she look like? Will she have any more sassy remarks? Will she help take care of Jack-Jack, or be like ‘nah fam’? Ahhh the suspense is killing me!!

Mrs Incredible in action again.

Similarly, we’ll get to see Mrs. Incredile – AKA Elastigirl – kick some butt. She won’t be going to rescue Bob from Jack-Jack; she’ll be saving the world! Yas, queen!

Lessons to Learn from Disney Princesses

Yesterday the new trailer for Wreck it Ralph 2: Ralph Breaks the Internet was released. It was fun, exciting and completely different. There’s a bunch of Easter Eggs in it, and a whole scene dedicated to the Disney Princesses. How awesome is that?! They unite over feminism and the voice actresses that are still living, are voicing their princesses. I for one, can not wait. At all!

So, with everyone excited about this exciting movie and completely different turn, let’s see what lessons we have learnt from our beloved princesses.

Your comfort zone was meant to be shattered.

If our princesses didn’t take risks and have an adventure, they wouldn’t have their character change or their happily ever after. Rapunzel left her tower, Moana went beyond the reef, Aurora spoke to her prince, Tiana worked her butt off. These girls are crazy inspiring.

Kindness is power.

None of them were cruel to anyone. They helped everyone and were kind. Karma acted, and they got kindness in return ๐Ÿ˜‰ Treat others as you wish to be treated and you’ll get what you need. Cinderella was kind to the mice, and they helped free her from the tower. Pocahontas was kind to her ‘enemies’ and ended a war.

Simply having a dream isn’t enough.

You need to act on your dream and make it happen. It won’t just fall in to place; you need to be like Tiana and ‘work real hard each and every day!’

Live like there’s no tomorrow.

As if the clock is about to strike midnight. Life’s too short. Don’t wait around for Prince Charming ๐Ÿ˜‰ none of our princesses really waited for them either – they just came across them by chance. Apart from Elsa and Merida!

Don’t dismiss your family and friends.

Your family and friends are important and will always be there for you; don’t take them for granted. In Frozen, we can see that with Elsa and Anna. They had a tough life, made even harder through their lack of communication

Listen to your heart.

Follow your dreams and what you love. All of these girls did, and their lives changed for the better. ‘The voice inside is who you are.’

Don’t let others define you.

Why should someone else be able to tell you what you can and can’t achieve? What you can and can’t dream? They can’t; you’re the only one who knows your limits. But even then, you may shock yourself and be capable of much more than you thought. Ariel knew that she didn’t belong underwater, and where the people are, and she went there. Sure, at first she didn’t exactly do it the right way, with Ursula and the deal. But, she listened to her heart, didn’t let her misunderstanding father hold her back, and got her happily ever after. Even Tiana didn’t let others define her, with raising money for a restaurant. And she got that restaurant!

Never stop learning.

If they didn’t learn about life in general and their situation, their journey would be much more difficult. Knowledge is key. Belle continued to learn about the beast (or, Adam) and the enchanted castle. If she didn’t, she probably would have continued to be afraid of them. And Jasmine learnt about her kingdom and people by disguising herself as one. If she hadn’t had done that, she wouldn’t have met Aladdin or tasted the freedom that she craved.

Be open to new ideas.

Be open to new ideas and change your perspective. Perspective is also key! Don’t be afraid to change your mind. If Belle hadn’t had changed her perspective on Adam (with the help of love, of course), then she wouldn’t have fallen in love with him, broke the curse and changed the villagers view of him. She also read a lot even though the villagers didn’t exactly approve of it. Those books helped her become more adventurous, wanting much more than ‘this provincial life…’ Mulan also changed her appearance to save her father and China. Disney princesses are brave and fierce!

There’s magic in you.

No question about it. Deep down, we’re all a Disney Princess; ‘where there is kindness, there is goodness. Where there is goodness there is magic. Have courage and be kind.’ A quote I live by, which I think we should all live by.

Some of the Best Disney Princess Quotes

Disney characters are probably one of the first and best role models for kids nowadays. Whether it be classic Disney characters, Marvel or Star Wars characters; there’s someone for everyone. Even teenagers and adults can idolize these characters. Personally, I have always admired the princesses and fairies. So these are some of the best quotes from our princesses that are iconic, sassy and yet, still, inspirational.

“I am not a prize to be won!” – Jasmine, Aladdin.

You tell them, Jasmine; don’t let them objectify you!

 

“And so I’ll read a book, or maybe two, or three.” – Rapunzel, Tangled.

Literally every bookworm. Ever.

“You believed Ping. Why is Mulan any different?” – Mulan, Mulan.

Yes! Nothing about her really changed, so why should they no longer trust her? After all, she was still a better soldier, as both Ping and Mulan.

 

“He’s no monster, Gaston. You are!” – Belle, Beauty and the Beast.

Tell that handsome villain how awful he is in the sassiest way ever.

 

“Remember you’re the one who can fill the world with sunshine.” – Snow White, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

Perspective. Things may be tough, but it’s up to you to change your life for the better.

 

“We must simply have courage and be kind.” – Cinderella.

This is my all time favourite quote! It’s so simple but so meaningful.

“Yes, I’m alone, but I’m alone and free!” – Elsa, Frozen.

Embrace your own company and independence.

 

“The only way to get what you want in this world is through hard work.” – Tiana, The Princess and the Frog.

Nothing’s going to get done by itself. Work hard; what you plant now will harvest later.

 

“No matter how your heart is grieving, if you keep on believing, the dreams that you wish will come true.” – Cinderella, Cinderella.

Similar to Tiana’s quote, your dream will come true. With hard work, faith, trust and a little bit of pixie dust.

 

“If you walk the footsteps of a stranger, you’ll learn things you never knew, you never knew.” – Pocahontas, Pocahontas.

Don’t judge anyone. We all have our own problems, our secrets. Give people a chance and don’t be too harsh on them.

“Can I just say something crazy?” – Anna, Frozen.

Yes, Anna. Yes, you can, because we should all say something crazy sometimes. For example; supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.

 

“All at once, everything is different, now that I see you.” – Rapunzel, Tangled.

This is probably the best quote to describe falling in love. I wouldn’t know, but it seems that way.

 

“People think I’m odd.” – Belle, Beauty and the Beast.

Same.

“If you dream a thing more than once, it’s sure to come true.” Aurora, Sleeping Beauty.

Believe in yourself and your dreams!

 

“Write our own stories, follow our hearts, and find love. In our own time.” – Merida, Brave.

Take things slow, don’t rush yourself. Be content.

 

Bonus!

“How could there be anything wrong with something so wonderful?” – Melody, The Little Mermaid II: Return to the Sea.

We can’t forget about this little princess! But we should always remain optimistic.

Important Characters: Dory

I want to start a series for Disney characters that I think are particularly important and why. These charactersย  will range from main characters to minor characters. It’ll be a fun mini sort of project, that’ll be interesting to research and entertaining to write. It’ll also be yet another excuse to watch Disney films!

To start with, I thought I’d take a closer look at Finding Nemo‘s Dory. Both films contain some perspective on animal rights, especially the sequel, so she’s clearly involved in some particularly important films anyway! And her being there just adds to the importance of them.

Dory’s an incredible character, hilarious and so sweet. Within the first and second movie, Dory is always there for Marlin and Nemo, and never gives up on them. Even when she and Marlin has an argument, she still sticks by his side, is loyal to him, and still wants to help him out. While she may be scared, she keeps her courage to help and go out of her way.

Whilst on her adventures, Dory makes friends easily and trusts others. Marlin learns to put his faith in others because of her. He learns it the tough way, but better late than never! Because they trusted others and made new friends, they succeeded in ‘finding Nemo.’ And in the sequel, they found each other and *spoiler* they find Dory’s parents.

Dory is also an amazing character who has a mental illness. Nevertheless, her illness doesn’t hold her back. While it’s difficult for her to cope, she always pulls through. She’s so inspirational that even Nemo thinks, ‘what would Dory do?’ and teaches Marlin to do the same. Watching the movies, you can see that Dory tells us that it’s okay to have a mental illness, and that it doesn’t have to hold you back.

Lastly, Dory is voiced by Ellen DeGeneres, who is gay and is a feminist. Personally, I think she’s one of the best celebrities out there! Her and Dory are quite similar, personality wise.

As you can see, Dory is extremely important. And, actually, quite underrated. She represents some marginalized groups and is inspiring, funny, sweet and loyal. Plus, fishes are cute; so that’s a bonus! I’m sure I’ve left some valid points out, but that doesn’t mean they’re any less important.

Why do you love Dory?

If something isn’t working, try it a different way. Can’t finish the essay? Try a different question. Ask for help. Think about the question in a different.

 

“Life’s not a spectator sport. If watchin’ is all you’re gonna do, then you’re gonna watch your life go without ya” – Laverne, The Hunchback of Notre Dame

You can’t wait for things to happen, you have to put effort into whatever it is.

 

“I never look back, darling, it distracts me from the now” – Edna, The Incredibles

Keep looking forward; cheer up, child,ย it’llย turn out alright in the end, you’ll see.

Don’t be bitter about the past. Try and move on, and look forward.

 

“Have courage and be kind” – Cinderella, Cinderella (2015)

It has more power than you know.

 

I hope you enjoyed this post!

Confessions of a Disney Freak

Taking a break from the Halloween posts, here’s a bit of a fun, personal post.

As you all probably know by now, I love Disney. Why else would I have this blog? Disney is just the best thing ever! Like lots of other people, I’m proud of being such a huge fan of Disney. Being obsessed with Disney, I do still have some confessions!

But, really quickly, I have just got my own Pinterest account, so feel free to follow me! I have boards on Disney, vintage, girly things, the Titanic, Ariana Grande, Michael Jackson, Johnny Depp and cute wedding photos etc.

I haven’t seen any of the Cars or Plans films.

Yep. I haven’t seen a single one. When I was younger, I watched the first five minutes or so of Cars and I didn’t really get in to it, neither did my mam or sister, so we turned it off. And decided to not give the other films a chance. Maybe I should give them another chance now, but I probably won’t!

I’ve only been to Disneyland Paris and Disneyworld Florida.

I’ve been to Disneyland Paris a few times and Disneyworld Florida once. I know that’s a lot compared to some people, so I’m not being ungrateful. But I would love to go to the Disney park in Hong Kong! It looks beautiful.

free-maleficent

I hope to spend at least one Halloween, Christmas and/or maybe New Years in a Disney resort.

The decorations! The joy! The festivity! It all looks SO exciting and fun and beautiful. I need to spend at least one holiday there – everyone does!

If I were to work in a Disney park, I would love to be Rapunzel, Tinkerbell, Aurora, Fawn or Cinderella.

Everyone has a character/role they’d love to be at a Disney park, or any other park. Mine would be the princesses or fairies. Yep, I’m a very generic girl!

I didn’t always like Tim Burton’s version of Alice in Wonderland.

I KNOW, I DON’T KNOW WHY! The first time I watched it, it just didn’t work for me. But then like the next day, I re-watched it for some reason and fell in love with it. I guess first impressions aren’t always right…

If it’s related to Disney in some way, I’ll buy it.

Call me a hoarder, but if I see anything Disney or at least related to Disney in some way, if I like it, I’ll buy it. I’m just preparing for my future home!

 

Thanks for reading this post, I hope you enjoyed it! What are your Disney confessions?

Have a magical day!

Halloween Must-Watch Movies (Part 1)

Halloween is just around the corner! It’s my second favourite holiday (first being Christmas). The costumes, movies, music, festivity is all so much fun to get involved in. There’s something to do and watch for all ages. There’s so many movies to watch so I’m going to have to cut it in to two parts – but I’m not complaining! However, let’s be honest; most of the movies are going to be from the amazing Tim Burton – it’s not Halloween without him!!
