Did some thinking about how many beautiful animated females there are so I decided to do an article on it!

10. Allura



Love her hair color and eyes! I largely prefer her tan skin as well, but the way her hair cups her face as well as her chin are the parts I don't really like about her face. Other than that I like all of her aspects especially her eye shape which I think is pretty under-appreciated.


9. Kida



Another tan queen with light hair! I absolutely love her face shape though, her lips are so nice as well and her eyes really pop. I'd say the only thing that keeps her lower is her hair, it looks like a mop, like a used and cut-up old mop, it doesn't suit her face very well, but she's still so pretty. Her nose could use some work, but like I said nearly every other aspect to her is beautiful.

You know me, always making articles about people of color and their representation in media, specifically animated media for children. So I decided to focus on indigenous representation and which characters are good and bad representation in fairly well-known movies. This isn't in any particular order either.

For this list, I chose heroines that have heritage from a country that is predominantly industrialized because of the conquest of a foreign culture. Mainly tribes where they no longer speak their original language and there race is no longer the majority even though they are the natives of that land. The typical assumption of "indigenous peoples" mostly involving the Americas and American territories.

Side Note: If you don't like political correctness or really just the sensitivities of people of color, you probably won't like reading this article. Also this is just my personal opinion I really don't mind If you think differently.

Dedicated to UnholyNoise, who has patiently waited for some PoE MBTI posts for a long time!



Extraverted Feeling (Fe): Miriam is above all else, sympathetic to the plights of others. Her own situation looks very bleak and hopeless but she still feels for others. Moses hurt her, and she still forgives him and is willing to give him love and encouragement. She is frank and outspoken in every situation ("Aaron, you shame yourself", "Ask the man you call Father!"). She wants to help others and rather than making decisions based on personal values as a Fi user would, makes them based on what would be better for her people as a whole.



Introverted Intuition (Ni): Miriam has unshakable faith that keeps her going despite the pain in her life. She believes in miracles when most people wouldn't. She has no evidence at all that her faith will be rewarded- she just believes because she's an idealist. And her belief does turn out to be justified. She looks past the gritty situation- a slave life her people seem unable to escape from- and dreams only of the future. She is completely patient in...

I decided to create this list, because I really can never rank my favorite movies into list because I'm constantly rewatching them and falling in love with them, then putting them as number one, only for them to play musical chairs with my other favorites for what seems like an eternity. So instead of doing an order I'm just going to tell you about my five or so favorite animation pieces of all time (in no particular order).



The Road to el Dorado:

Honestly ever since I was a kid this movie has alway peeked my interest, whether it was initially from the bright colors or the killer Elton John compositions this movie has always had a special place in my heart. I remember when I was in elementary school I would sing the soundtrack the way other kids would sing The Little Mermaid or Lion King, the soundtrack isn't nearly as critically acclaimed as the others, but it deserves to be in my book. Another reason I think this movie was so alluring to me is that the animation is absolutely gorgeous, the vibrant colors an art style might've actually been the pushing point of my drawing career (besides Disney documentaries of course)....

Hi! I've been on here for quite a few years now and have never done a favorite Disney movie list, I mean I have in my head but I've never posted an article about it. It's always something I wanted to do but I always found it hard to actually put a list together as I'm so indecisive lol. I did a top 15 instead of a top 10 so it was a bit easier for me. I sometimes struggle to express why I like certain things, so apologies if I repeat myself a lot in the article! Also a few of these I like pretty much equally, especially in the middle. These aren't necessarily objectively the 'best' Disney movies, just my personal favourites.



15.Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
This movie is part of the reason I did a top 15 instead of a top 10 as I couldn’t possibly not include it. Whilst it’s not a perfect movie in terms of plot execution, I’ve always found it one of the most enjoyable Disney movies to watch and I’m never bored during. The soundtrack, while not Disney’s best, is fun and all of the characters (maybe with the exception of the Prince- but I love him regardless) are memorable and timeless as well as the movie itself.

Well! This was pretty overdue. I wrote my favorite Disney Princesses list years ago (which I am now less than satisfied with, and may need to rewrite) but have done no articles ranking any general animated girls. So this might be a bit long, but I hope you enjoy!

Honorable mentions:Eilonwy, The Chipettes, The Three Good Fairies, Flora, Tecna, Raven, Misty, Jane Porter, Captain Amelia, Wendy Darling, Pocahontas, Katrina Van Tassel, Moana, Tiana, Lottie, Nakoma, Duchess and Marie, Marina, Miriam, Odette, Amalthea, Sailor Mercury, Sailor Neptune, Sailor Jupiter, Sophie Hatter, Lorna, Honey Lemon, Aunt Cass, Bo Peep, Barbie, Nala, Crysta, Fern Arable, Mrs. Brisby, Abbey Bominable, Twyla. (I'm sorry, I really love animated girls. Sue me.)

Traditionally, these lists have ten or occasionally fifteen or twenty rankings. But I love these ones so much I had to incude them. The only reason they didn't make the special top 10 is because I just love the others a bit more.

I thought with the many claims of lack of representation in children's films as a PoC I should take it upon myself to bring some underrated movies of different cultures to light. Granted not all of these are necessarily children's films, but they are all animated and I personally think every kid should see them.

I have each ethnicity I could think of and animated movies where that ethnicity is well-represented. I want to build on this so if you don't see your ethnicity here please tell me, I want as many movies as I can get with as many different walks-of-life! These depictions are supposed to be respectful.

Note: These are animated feature films that represent the ethnicity, It does not take into account where the movies were made, but instead which ethnicity is the one being represented on screen. So for Example, a French made movie whose main cast is Arabic will be in the Arabic section and not the French, the on-screen people is what matters not the nation it was created in.

Hi, everyone! My name is Alexandra and I am very interested in fashion. Today I want to tell you about fashion preferences.

This is my TOP-10 favorite CAMH outits. This top isn't objective and I don't mean that other dresses are bad. I'll be very short for them but I'm not much of writing or storyteller.

10. Megara's dress.
I really like this dress, both its color and shape.

9. Jasmine's purple engagement oufit.
Another very beautiful purple outfit.

8. Jasmine's red outfit.
I'm not a fan of ethnic clothing( this is also a reason I didn't include Anastasia's yellow ballroom gown), I prefer classic style but the gorgeous color of clothing and the shape of bracelet makes me love it.

7. Belle's pink outfit.[
I am indifferent to dress itself but this maroon cloak( my favorite color). And I love this white fur and I love how it frames Belle's face.

6.Tiana's white dress.

Introverted Feeling (Fi): Sally is independent, and guided by an internal set of values that lead her to oppose the idea of adopting Christmas in Halloweentown, even though the man she loves is doing it, along with the whole town. She doesn’t present a rational argument as to why he shouldn’t do it, but rather is against it because it just feels wrong to her, though she doesn’t impose her opinion on others. She doesn’t like the lifestyle Dr. Finkelstein has forced on her, but she still cares for him, and rebels quietly when she can’t take any more. Sally has trouble telling Jack she likes him, instead showing her affection through acts (bringing him dinner and wine when he forgets to eat, helping to make his costume, going to save Sandy). She has a deep bond with Jack, even though she thinks he only sees her as a friend, and would do anything for him.



Extroverted Sensing (Se): Sally is somewhat impatient, and is bored being locked up all the time. She would rather be doing something, and be out with others in town and with Jack. She has a reckless...

Magic Mirror on the wall, what are my favorite and least favorite animated movies of them all?
This is like the third or so time that I've made an article about what I consider to be the WORST animated movies of ALL TIME, but this is the first time I've done it about my favorite animated movies. I've been meaning to make one about my favorite animated movies for a while now and I've FINALLY gotten around to it! So I thought I'd combine both lists into one article in order to kill two birds with one stone. Plus I think it's kind of fun to start out with negativity and end it on positivity. Keep in mind that this is just my personal opinion, so don't be rude. Please comment telling me what you think, but again, be polite about it. Enjoy!

The WORST Animated Movies

10.Eight Crazy Nights

You know that you can't have a worst movies list without having at least one Adam Sandler movie, though it's rare to think of an animated movie by Sandler. Thankfully, the Hotel Transylvania movies are good animated movies. This movie has all the problems that Sandler's bad movies (Which is almost all of his movies) have: horrible humor, a generic story, an unlikable protagonist, some good morals that are...

So I've been lately into classic mythology and literature all of a sudden and I thought it'd be a good idea to see popular characters from animated movies matched up to characters from greek mythology.

Obviously i won't be using any characters from Hercules, since that would be easy, and it's more fun to see comparisons with different things. I wanted to make it balanced and add also non-Disney, but it was a little difficult. I hope this match up is good, and tell me if you have some suggestions for some characters i didn't choose or matches you think fit better.

Sooo, let's get started.

1) Zeus- King Fergus (Brave)

The leader of the gods with the charismatic king from Brave. it wasn't that hard to find a good match up since Zeus stands out as this boisterous party loving king, similar to how Fergus isn't as strict as other animated kings/fathers. Of course, he's quite loyal to his beloved Elinor, unlike Zeus with Hera, but they share some similarities as being kings who prefer partying over work and can spoil some of their children.

Out of the three options for article ideas, this was the top choice by a landslide. I've actually been thinking of writing about this for a long time, but the rankings were always a blur until now. I was originally going to make a Top 15 until an error happened and I had to start all over again :( Also fanpop is pretty much dead right now, so I'll write the other articles when it's more active :/

Honorable Mentions: Part of Your World (The Little Mermaid), Stand Out (A Goofy Movie), Can You Feel the Love Tonight (The Lion King), The Last Unicorn (''), Jack's Lament (The Nightmare Before Christmas), A Whole New World (Aladdin)



10) Reflection - Mulan

Yeah, I've always been obsessed with this song. It's so pretty. I just love Lea Salonga's voice is the traditional Chinese sounds.



9) Welcome to the Show - MLP Equestria Girls: Battle of the Bands

Say what you want about MLP, but the Dazzlings get the best parts. They harmonize greatly together and they sound like sirens, which is what they are....

I've decided to put whether I actually liked the films aside to spotlight some films who have ladies as main protagonists (not secondary) so this list is not in any particular order. I am excluding Disney and Pixar since you probably have seen a majority of them. Sadly I am not mentioning Ghibli films because they are a company where about 90% of their films are led to girls so all I have to do is tell you to pick up almost any one of their movies to get some leading ladies. I will also mention the Barbie films because ALL of them have female leads.
Note these are movies I have actually watched so if you wanna give a shout out to another movie in the comments feel free because it's always great to have more ladies in our animated movies.


Movies you've definitely heard about because they get mentioned plenty here on fanpop

Anastasia



Anastasia is an orphan has been her whole life as far as she knows and after leaving the orphanage she decides to go to Paris since its the only clue on hand she has to her past. There she meets con man Dimitri who convinces her she's the...

I like animated movies... a lot. And whenever looking my favorite movies EVER they do happen to pop up a lot. But sometimes it's hard to remember that the world of animation isn't dominated by Disney and it's nice to remember movies I enjoyed that didn't have a big name behind them so here I am to share some animated movies I love that are not connected to the biggest names in animation namely Disney, Pixar, DreamWorks and Studio Ghibli. also I am going to avoid movies that you had to see a TV show or anime to fully appreciate it so alas I must say sorry to "Kim Possible a stich in time" and "Gintama the second movie" (while they weren't in my top 20 I am sorry that those movies won't be getting any attention at all in this article.)


{Number 20} Pilgrim's progress 1978



Did anyone else watch like old VHS cartoons over and over as kids? because I did and on one of the tapes was the Pilgrim's progress in Spanish and in English back to back. and I loved it. The artstyle, which dates it pretty well, still appeals to me, I find the songs soothing, Faithful was one of my first crushes and also the...

While I've never been one to spend hours thinking about who is the most beautiful character ever, I do admit I have my favorites in terms of beauty. I might have done this list, but I'd prefer to do it now again now that I've got my favorites cleared out. I add things like likability and personality aside from physical beauty in terms of how beautiful I find the character.

Most of these choices are in between conventional and unconventional, but it's mostly into what I personally find attractive. Remember that this list is subjective and it's all my opinion, so don't get mad if your faves aren't here.

First Category- Children
While I wasn't thinking of adding kids, I thought I could always still mention some whom I think have a very pretty design. Thankfully, they weren't many, for I wanted to focus on adult women and most animated girls i find just to be plainly cute.

The winners here are Shanti (from The Jungle Book) and Princess Eilonwy (from The Black Cauldron).

I'm still making a video (so you can see the poise and grace in action!), I'm just making an article just in case my video gets blocked because youtube is a bitch, so I'm crossing my fingers it doesn't cause problems.

I know not everyone might not agree with me, but the good thing about this, is that we all have an idea on what elegance is and I was giving points on poise, grace, appearance, class, how they act, and the impression they left on me. I needed a lot of help with this. I've asked and googled and this is what I came up with. I had a really hard time ranking the characters, so the final list might end up being bullshit, so this is the final draft before the video (which I can fix). While I know this list is bad, I'm happy I'm one of the first to do something like this! (It gives me creativity points which I value a lot!) Also at least I gave a good balance to both genders and used characters from different worlds. (Also I'm going to limit it two per franchise) You don't know how many times I had to rewatch clips of these characters!

Hey Fanpoppers, I am doing a review on a movie I was writing that was expected to be released on TAY (Talk Among Yourselves) very soon. I have an excerpt from the intro of the review; it’s a very interesting yet dark fact-filled story of the making and behind the scenes drama behind Warner Bros’ obscure Non-Disney Film/Disney Knockoff, Quest for Calmelot.

When Warner Bros. Feature Animation was founded in ’94, they have planned to make two projects to release for theaters, with the Live-Action/Animated Hybrid Film Space Jam planned for the November 1996 release and the film adaption of the 2nd novel in Vera Chapman’s Three Damsels trilogy, The King’s Demosel (Aka, The King Damsel for grammar correction.) titled The Quest for The Grail for the 1997 release.

The film was going to be directed by the Husband-and-Wife team behind Ferngully: The Last Rainforest Bill and Susan Kroyer and planned to be darker and faithful to the story of Vera Chapman’s book, pitched as “The Braveheart of animated features with fighting and blood, etc.”

nvm that this has mostly superheroes. i couldn't find a good one of male heroes
The next part of this amazing series where we discover the world of my interests and favorite characters.

So, last time we talked about the ladies, now it's time to talk about the gentlemen. I'll admit that this was a harder list to make, because I do have a mental list for the ladies, with the men it's very uneven and unsorted. So I had to think a lot to get this list going, but I think in the end I managed to get something that works.

Well, let's get started.

15) Tack (The Thief and the Cobbler)

He's such a cutie! He barely makes the list but I could talk a lot about him. I love that he's the opposite of Aladdin, while Aladdin is outspoken and jumps right at danger Tack is more quiet and cautious. I like his story, of the underdog who manages to rise on top, and I think the story works well with him more than other characters because he's actually quite humble and doesn't brag about himself.
It's actually much more satisfying seeing him get up from the ashes and save the day, since he spent all the other time in the shadows, not wanting to be noticed.

I think I did this list a long time ago, when I first joined Fanpop, but since then my opinion on things has slightly differed. Some female characters have stayed on their permanent spot, while others have been dropped off the line. Some new have been added.

What is consistent in this list, though, is that in general i love female characters, especially the animated ones. When well written, I often find them to be very interesting and appealing characters (that may be due to me being a woman, but I don't want to follow cliched gendered stereotypes).

This list may go into personal territories at times, so I warn you beforehand of this If you see me starting to speak about off-topic matters. But these female characters also in a way remind me of aspects of my personal life and passions so I think it's reasonable for me to speak about it.

It's based on this poll of mine:

Damn, making my top 10 animated movies was harder than I thought! I have a feeling that I left out some, and there are some I would like to include but it's been a while that I haven't seen them, so the more appropriate way to describe this list is a rough draft of my favorite animated movies xD It's just really hard to make a favorites list and give proper explanations. There many animated movies that I love, but there only a couple that have stolen my heart 💜


10) The Nightmare Before Christmas

Starting this list is my favorite Christmas (or Halloween) movie! I'm not a fan of stop motion animation, but this movie is brilliant and has an excellent soundtrack. I love how it has an unconventional style and setting. The main characters and movie are still great! I can't help, but feel bad for Jack when Christmas ended up being a nightmare. I wish I could elaborate more on why The Nightmare Before Christmas is so great because it's seriously a great movie! I actually haven't seen this movie until I was a bit older, but it gives me feels!

Much like my recent Pocahontas vs Anastasia article, I'm continuing my movies vs movies article with Sleeping Beaty vs The Swan Princess. A little background is that both movies are based off plays by Tchaikovsky, Sleeping Beauty and Swan Lake. Although Sleeping Beauty is also based-off the original fairy-tale by Charles Perrault and a little bit off the story of Briar Rose by the Brothers Grim. Unfortunately, for both the Charles Perrault Sleeping Beauty and the original play of Swan Lake, it ends in tragedy. Sleeping Beauty didn't wake up from her deep sleep from true love's kiss, it was from being raped. Swan Lake ended with Odette committing suicide after seeing Prince Seigfried make his vow of ever lasting love to the fake Odette (Rothbart's daughter, Odile). Later Siegfried finds out and kills himself because if they couldn't be together in life, they would be together in death. However, over the years in writing and film media, especially The Swan Princess and Disney's Sleeping Beauty, those endings have been modified to satisfy the audiences and give the characters happy endings.

Much like my old article where I compared Ariel and Merida, I decided to continue it after quite a few years. But this time it's me comparing movies that are similar, though not something I'm planning on making a habit of. So far, I'm just going to be doing Pocahontas vs Anastasia and Sleeping Beauty vs The Swan Princess. We'll see where it goes from there. We'll be starting with, by popular demand, Pocahontas vs Anastasia. First of all, I'm not going to bring up the historical inaccuracy of the two films because that's just really pointless. They're not meant to be educational, they're meant to be entertaining, which they definitely are. Besides, it's not like they're awful movies like the animated Titanic movies, which makes it harder to ignore the historical inaccuracies. Anastasia and Pocahontas have a lot more creativity to them that makes it VERY EASY to ignore the historical inaccuracies. Plus if anyone thinks an animated movie is supposed to be historically accurate and educate people, they must be really stupid if they're depending on an animated movie to educate people. These movies are meant for entertainment, keep the historical inaccuracies out of your minds because...

I would usually post this on the Heroes club but that spot is a lost cause. Anyway, I'm really tired but I wanted to get this article done, I'll have to check up on it another time. Enjoy!




10. Nightcrawler

To be honest, 10th place could have been anyone. It was so hard for me to decide but here's the trouble maker, Nightcrawler. Come on, ''chicks dig the fuzzy dude!'' and teleportation is the most useful superpower ever. He was raised by Germans but biologically he's Mystique's son and Rogue's brother.

9. Thomas

Thomas is not one of those characters I feel forced to feel bad for. No I genuinely feel sympathy for him because he's not self-pitying. And that's the thing, I genuinely like him, his character feels very organic to me. He keeps messing up but the movie doesn't go all ''Will you just look at that tortured soul!'' Also, he's voiced by Christian Bale!!!

*Honorable mentions*

* Princess Kida (Atlantis: The Lost Empire)



It is truly bogus that even though she is technically a princess, Kida isn't marketed as such just because her movie didn't do well. Her ties to royalty are more real than, say, Mulan's are. Anyway... this woman is so badass. Physically, Kida can hold her own against anybody who tries to take her on or who poses a threat to her people. She's speaks a ton of languages, she's compassionate, she doesn't take crap from anybody, and she and Milo are equals in their relationship – he rescues her, but then it's her turn to save him – and her entire civilization – from being exterminated. What a boss.

* Nausicaa (Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind)


Disney and Dreamworks usually fill up lists like this, so I wanted to add my favorite “outsider,” Nausicaa, who is a Miyazaki heroine. This girl... she's got guts, first and foremost. She fearlessly walks into a toxic wasteland with just her wits to guide her. And she really is smart – and not in the informed,...

So, inspired by audreybrooke's article about which House would be more suitable for each Disney Princess (you can find the article in the DP spot), I decided to do the same for other heroines!

Oh and sorry for not putting Harry Potter related pictures to all the heroines, I was just too bored to edit them or even add a proper background that reminds us of a particular House (yellow for Hufflepuff for example, or red and gold for Gryffindor).

Esmeralda
Gryffindor


She's definitely a Gryffindor! Esmeralda is very fiery, passionate, brave, to the point of being reckless, and a fighter. She's not afraid of speaking her mind and she is willing to get into trouble in order to defend her friends. She can act without thinking of the consequences (like for example in the Festival of Fools where she stood to Frollo and she actually dared to mock him in front of all these people). She also appears very confident, playful and kinda cocky, especially during her dance in the Festival of Fools.
