    Which Disney couples would be most (or least) likely to live happily every after?

    Licensed therapist Jonathan Decker and filmmaker Alan Seawright take a look at these six iconic Disney couples to see which ones are quite unhealthy, and which ones might actually have the foundation for a lasting relationship: Aladdin and Jasmine, Cinderella and Prince Charming, Fix-it-Felix and Calhoun (Wreck-it-Ralph), Rapunzel and Eugene (Tangled), Simba and Nala (The Lion King), and Snow White and Prince Florian. We take a look at things like love at first sight, honesty, healthy conflict resolution, consent, and more in this round one of ranking Disney romances.
    (Sorry it's only six - that's all we could cram into one episode and still have time to talk about what makes the relationships good or bad! But we'll do this again, probably.)

I feel like Tangled is less “bad guy with a heart of gold/bad guy with soft spot for girl” and more of a “nice guy with a heart of gold who tries to be a bad guy as a coping mechanism” he put up walls his entire life because he’s only known loss and loneliness. That’s what makes it different and I think that’s why it feels better than most “bad guy turns good” movies and storylines

Yes. He was never a bad guy. He just did bad things because that was the only way for him to get what he wanted. Because he never had the things that he wanted. Then he stumbled upon this weird girl who only wants one thing and helps her because, I feel like, he sees himself in her.

In defense of prince charming, shoes in that era were custom made for the wearer, even for the lower classes. So it was perfectly reasonable for him to use the shoe as a means of identification. Also, in the original the ball was a masquerade (no way of knowing what she looks like) and lasted for three days (more chances to interact and get to know each other.

I‘d also like to add, in the Prince‘s defense, that he doesn’t actually come along to look for Cinderella, so it’s entirely valid to bring all the girls that could have worn that shoe to the castle as a pre-selection, and then the prince (who would likely recognise Cinderella in a line-up) could pick her.

@HallieEva I find this comment a bit confusing, to be honest. In almost every global culture, there have always been emotionally close relationships between men and women. In wealthier social classes, frequently married men (and women as well) would take a mistress/lover not only for sex but for the emotional attachment, because they weren't in love or emotionally close to their spouse in an arranged or convenient marriage; and in all classes, people have always bonded emotionally regardless of gender. We're no different than our ancestors of centuries ago in that respect; human nature doesn't change. I'm also not sure how that idea really applies to this aspect of Mulan, because Shang's emotional reactions in the film aren't because he's formed an emotional bond with a woman, it's that he was clearly having an attraction to what he initially thought was a young (male) subordinate, and then discovered that his protege was a woman who'd broken the law; he was the ultimate rule-following golden boy in the film, and he couldn't do what he'd have seen as his technical "duty" in executing her for it.

@Kristina Huchison I like that breakdown of Pocahontas and John Smith. I've always liked them, but I don't know if love is truly what's achieved. What I love most about them is how they changed each other's firm prejudices of the other and accepted their differences, like you said. I would say that Tiana and Naveen falling in love too quickly isn't really fair. I know you said it's your opinion, but just as subjective as our opinions can be, so can falling in love. Many forms, many beginnings, many interpretations, too many variables to fit into a mold. I would feel more comfortable judging interactions than circumstances. If Pocahontas and John Smith's journey took place within an hour, it wouldn't change the impact. Even if Ariel and whatever the guy's name is went without properly communicating for 3 years opposed to 3 days, I still wouldn't like their relationship.

Just my opinion but only other couple that’s as beautiful and mature as Rapunzel and Flynn Rider is undoubtedly Pocahontas and John Smith. Ignoring historical accuracy, they’ve always been my favorite because you can tell they’re in love with each other not because of their looks, but because of how different they are, and they even talked about their dreams and futures to see if they’re compatible, considering she even asked if he planned on going back home. Most couples don’t really have individual dreams aside falling in love until it came to in a way Belle, and Aladdin and Jasmine, but it became even more obvious with Pocahontas trying to get out of an arranged marriage to someone she knew she’d never be truly happy with, while John Smith was already living his dream and never expected to fall in love, much less with a “savage” I think that’s what makes them stand out even more is because they’re the only Disney princess couple that is interracial (I’m not sure about Tiana and Naveen) I love Tiana and Naveen, but this is just my personal opinion. I feel they fell in love too fast, considering Tiana is a more realistic and hardworking character, while Naveen was a lazy womanizer who planned to marry Lottie to keep living the luxurious life after his parents cut him off

One thing I love about Eugene and Rapunzel is that throughout the movie, Rapunzel grows in confidence and shows just how competent she is in these crazy situations, and instead of Eugene being threatened by that and like "noooo you're supposed to let me save you!! I feel emasculated by your skills and talents!" instead he's impressed and grows in respect for her. AND it brings him joy to see her being her big, true, free self when she is getting free of abuse. That to me is a huge marker of a healthy relationship.

I don't think I've ever witnessed (in fiction or in life) a man who feels "emasculated" by a chick doing her thing because she's suddenly not a "damsel in distress" for him to help. It's been weird hearing/reading about how much "our society" puts women down when I have never in my life experienced or witnessed this specific "emasculation" thing, as a woman growing up in a conservative space where (according to media and pop culture) this phenomenon is *supposedly rampant.* Could you give some examples of a guy who thinks he's being threatened by a woman who is capable?

I remember as I watched Wreck-It Ralph for the first time, I wasn't interested in Felix at first, but every time he showed Ralph or Calhoun respect, consideration, or empathy, I took notice. When he stood up to Calhoun and firmly (but not aggressively or obnoxiously) stated in a calm tone that he was going to honor his responsibility to clean up after Ralph, it was like a big green flag had lit up above his head.

what i've always loved dearly about the animated cinderella is the arc of a person who has been in an abusive home for most of her life learning what it means to deserve love and affection. yes, she dances with someone handsome and he finds her attractive as well, but they also walk and talk for hours on the grounds (although we the viewers get it as a montage). as the clock strikes midnight, they've been sitting and talking to each other when she needs to make a magical quick get away - her excuse is, "the prince! i haven't met the prince yet!" and the prince has a visible reaction when he realizes she spent all this time with him, not because she's after the crown, but because she genuinely enjoyed his company. i think that's the actual important moment in the new relationship, not the locking eyes and dancing a waltz. cinderella gets a lot of hate from folks who haven't watched her movie in a long time (or ever). but i think those folks underestimate how powerful it is to find affection when you've been told all your life that you are garbage, barely fit to serve the people who were supposed to love and protect you the most, when you finally accept (accept and believe, not realize) your humanity and your dignity and your wholeness. and if you actually watch the movie, you find a much more interesting personality than "just be nice all the time, even to your abuser!" or "omg he's cute i'm in love". she has sarcasm, wit, emotional endurance, softness, and yes, incredible compassion. she has to hide her personality to her abusers to survive, but she's still there. idk, it's really easy to dismiss femininity and softness. the femmes who use traditionally masculine tactics to succeed at their goals are not the only strong femme characters; sometimes strength looks like the emotional fortitude to stay alive with your heart intact.

One of the changes which the movie made was to make the stepsisters ugly. In the original fairy tale they were beautiful like Cinderella. The Prince choose Cinderella because of her interior beauty. I always loved that about Cinderella. In spite of her horrible, unjust circumstances she was cheerful, kind, patient, and fully self possessed and would not become bitter. What an important lesson for all of us!

Another thing about them is Charming and Ella were both in rough situations where they needed a solution. Their marriage was based on affection, true, but also practicality. Ella (Cinderella was a nickname from her stepsisters) needed an escape from her family; Charming needed to marry Someone because his father, the King, commanded he do so. It was just fantastic that they found someone they liked.

I love this response. I've always found Cinderella to be one of the more compelling female leads in a Disney film because yes, she does have this seemingly impossible capacity for compassion despite her circumstances, but she's not completely blind to her situation. She knows her step-sisters and step-mother are utterly garbage people, and I love that in those moments where she is alone in her reality, she'll make a sarcastic or biting comment on them. And I absolutely agree with your comment on the power of affection. As someone who's been in an abusive relationship, you really are ground down to relying on sheer faith and the belief that you'll love again, especially when it comes to regaining the love you have for yourself. There's beauty and romance in that quiet strength you need to push through another day and realize that even if it's only until midnight, you can experience a real connection with someone again and let yourself shine through.

He had PLENTY of time to work through his trauma. He was never TAUGHT how to because Timon and Pumba don't properly go there. Their thinking is if they put broken Simba back together he will go back to Pride Rock. They knowingly manipulate him into staying because they will never have to fear of protection again with Simba by their side. And then they continue brainwashing him into thinking bugs are a healthy diet for young cats.

This has already been said but I just wanted to point out again: Aladdin's rather painful attempts to make himself something he isnt throughout the movie is a direct result of the LAW regarding marriage for the sultan's daughter. Before he found out she was royalty, he wasn't trying to make himself out to be anything he wasn't. She saw him steal and saw where he lived, she knew he was a "street rat" so logically he had nothing to hide. He did it because he knew he would never have a chance in hell with her as "riff raff". It has nothing to do with his self esteem or confidence, which he has plenty of without trying to convince everyone he's a prince lol

Vor Monat

@Annie /\ It's not really an insecurity if it's true. As a street-rat he would have never been allowed at court, and sultan would have never allowed him to wed his daughter. It's not just the law, it's also societal norms of those days, and no sultan would ever let his daughter marry a street-rat - that is a simple fact.In the end of the movie the law is brushed aside because the sultan comes to like Aladdin and because Aladdin had saved their lives, but without the lie that would not have happened. As for lying to her... I both agree and disagree with you here - yes, he could have told the truth, but then she would have needed to lie to her father, so he would have only be putting her in a difficult position. And besides, there was a spark between them since the moment they met in the market, when he thought her a commoner, so he knew that she liked him as a nobody. So saying that he wanted to change into what she "wanted" makes no sense because he knew that she wanted him and not the prince (and she even made that clear at one point).

@Lloyd The Sultan created the law. He can abolish it an any point. Jasmine says what happened, Aladdin get's sought out and made into a member of the guard. Aladdin realizes Jafar is trying to take over and still helps save Agrabah. The Sultan abolishes the law. My main points are the Law isn't some commandment set in stone. It's something we see the Sultan hand wave away at the end. It didn't need to be a law and could have just been common sense. The Princess marries someone of high stature since she's the Sultan's only child. My other point, is that Jasmine lied first, which set the tone of her and Aladdin's relationship. Why is he the only one blamed for lying?

@kyle ellis seriously? When would he have a legitimate opportunity to tell the sultan about that. Because it would be pointless to tell anyone else since no one would believe the word of a thief.

You can't convince me otherwise that Aladdin would have any legitimate opportunity to court Jasmine without using the lie as a prince.

You know, I can give at least a slight defense to Aladdin. He wasn't just lying because he thought she wouldn't like him. He was lying because the laws say she has to marry a prince. He thought that if anyone - including her - found out he wasn't a prince, he'd have to give up. It's not much, but context does matter.

Fun Fact: the popular version of the Brothers Grimm that they reference details from, was already censored. Twice. Even before Disney ever cleaned it up. Grimm's Fairy Tales was a collection of children's stories they collected from real parents while going door to door, stories parents told their children. The first version the Grimms released was already censored by the Brothers themselves as they put the collection together. It was still so gross it was banned immediately upon release. They had to do another round of censoring for a second edition release for it to become popular. And yet, even after all that, it was still as horrific as they mention in this video. The original original version has been found and re-released, so look that up if you're curious. At you own risk. Crows peck out the eyes of the evil step-sisters.

@NinjaMatt2201 if i remember correctly, Cinderella was written down by Brothers Grimm but was inspired by another tale from i think France (so that it was parts from German origin and parts from French origin)? I think that French tale is where Disney got the whole "pumpkin and good fairy" - idea from, and maybe the name "Ella" for the girl ("Cinderella" in German would be "Aschenella", but the official name is Aschenputtel) ^^

I feel like with some of these you also have to take the surrounding context into account. So Snow White sees a handsome noble man who seems into her and is immediately "I want to marry him". Ok, considering the time period, what other choices does she have? She's going to be living with her stepmother, who is a homicidal sorceress ready to kill Snow as soon as she is prettier than her, until she gets married, and with her family lineage she pretty much has to be married to a noble. Her stepmother also hates her so she likely isn't getting an arranged marriage anytime soon. So meeting Prince Florian is like hitting the jackpot. He's not too much older, he's handsome, and he knows she exists. Similar with Cinderella. So, she can choose between staying with her stepmother and stepsisters, who all hate her and treat her like an employee/slave rather than family, or get married to the prince, who again is handsome, seems to like her and will one day be the king, ensuring that her stepmother can never trouble her again as she will absolutely have more power as the queen than whatever her stepmother is (below a duchess in rank it seems). If I was in either of those situations I'm pretty sure I'd roll the dice on the relationship working out rather than stay either as basically a slave and seemingly the only servant taking care of a huge estate, or in literal mortal danger from a crazed witch. These films aren't set today, and marriage was probably these women's only way out of their terrible situations.

I would still put Tangled on #1 though. The positive influence they have on each other is amazing, and they are just wayyy too cute. Also, you're not gonna watch the mini series, but in that it gets explored why Rapunzel didn't immediately say 'yes' to marriage. She doesn't want to be 'caged' so soon after being free.

I'm so glad the "potential" trap got brought up. I'm a recovering people-pleaser and I realized just how many toxic relationships I stayed in because I could see the potential in the person I was with. Some of them even got to the point of being highly abusive because I could see the person they COULD be. I had to come to terms with the fact that literally anyone has the potential to be better than they are, and I needed to start shifting my focus to their current actions rather than a hypothetical future.

I loved the part at the end of Tangled when Rapunzel’s long, beautiful golden hair is cut off and Eugene makes that playful comment that he has always had a thing for brunettes. Her hair was the only thing that was ever considered worthwhile or special about her and Eugene tells her straight away that he loves her new hair with the underlying meaning that he loves her with or without her special gift without her having to ask him for reassurance. He already anticipated something that could bother her and immediately reassured her in a playful, lighthearted way.

I like this. She was valued for her hair but he, from my viewpoint, straight up hated the blonde liability. The hair got in the way of everything and was more of a hinder to the teenager he found in the woods. He didn't even care that she used the hair to heal him. He was creeped out by it.

@cheezestyx not to mention that she was just as willing to die inside, locked away by Gothel, as he was to die literally for her. He couldn’t give her a choice because love is choosing the highest good for the other person. It was a very quiet, romantic version of Hawkeyes and Black Widows fight in Avengers endgame. Whoever gets to die has won the fight.

The animated Aladdin is one of my favorite Disney films of that era, but the relationship is utterly problematic. However he does have to come clean and they don't instantly get married - which I remember being very grateful for that given Disney's standard at the time. I loved the way Aladdin defeated Jafar; with his own hubris. I think that is part of what keeps the film as one of my favs, for all the imperfections. I don't remember the sequels to Aladdin very well but somewhere in my vague memory is them working on their relationship and his flaws. I think that's part of why I am a little more forgiving of it than I would have been IF they'd shown Aladdin and Jasmine getting married right off the bat. I like Eugene and Rapunzel, but I can never get around the beat in my head that says "How does she WALK with all of that hair? How is it she hasn't died of the migraines the weight has to be causing her? etc". I know that's silly; it's a cute movie but the hair is SOOOO long and she's running around like the only issue with it at all would be getting caught on something. IDK. The way we respond to little things in movies is strange and not always rational. My actual favorite romantic subplot moment in a Disney is straight up when Elsa tells Anna she can't marry a man she just met.

I think I have to bring up a point or two with Aladdin. First and foremost, when they first met and were on even ground, which is when their actual attraction began, she wasn’t the princess. For him to see her again, at all once she was revealed, he HAD to be a prince. (They were cutting off hands for apples, what do you think the punishment for princesses would be? 😅) No headway was made off of his lies, the relationship only progressed when he was honest, and Jasmine called him out on it more than once. He wasn’t trying to be more, necessarily, he was trying to have a chance. He even says he has to tell her the truth and stop being something he’s not, and that’s on the second day, so I’m not sure how much he was trying to fool her. I always liked their relationship because, and I know I’m going further than the movie and into the series, they have fights and disagree on things, but talk about it and grow stronger. They are the only Disney couple that had that side, not just a small tiff (or none, ever) but full on disagreements that they had to apologize for. And after the movie, despite a PALACE full of rooms, Aladdin still lives in his hovel. So if this isn’t owning and accepting one another for their truths, not sure what would be!

I don't think I've enjoyed movie reviews as much as this one. I love the insight into the character relationships and your banter. It's mad funny. I feel like there was a certain point in time when Disney wised up and became more intentional with what they were showing. For instance, in later Disney movies, they centered family and community relationships rather than romantic ones. Moana, Coco, and Encanto are all really amazing in that they are respectful of the culture and community, have these amazing storyline that make you ugly cry, and the best freaking songs. Curious to see if you would consider ranking family relationships in Dianey.

But Eugene is actually frightened by her hair at first, and even after he gets used to it, he's not enamored with it. He's enamored with _her._ And at the end of their duet, he gently _pushes her hair away._ I didn't notice until someone pointed that out and I _love_ those little details! He didn't care at all that she lost her powers. It's not her power he loves, it's _Rapunzel._

This was great, thank you guys :) The relationship I can’t stand is Little Mermaid, with the “Kiss the Girl” song. I didn’t realize it until I hears a YouTuber play the song in a minor key and then it was super creepy (definitely worth a watch.) It runs right over consent and tells kids that they’re wimps if they don’t press the physical, and makes it seem like a now or never scenario. Blehh. Also, in Sleeping Beauty, the Prince is being really stalker-y in the forest, and then when she tries to run he grabs her arm, then gaslights her and says they’ve met before. Why in the world was this touted as princely behavior 🤦🏽 I used to work with a children’s character company (going out to do character appearances at parties, parades, etc), and I spent a lot of time trying to undo the harmful stereotypes these movies portray (especially the older ones). Fortunately a lot of kids are being taught better relationship expectations, but I feel like there was so much damage done.

About Tangled: The series actually works a lot on both of them growing alongside each other. I honestly think it addressed very real issues that they both could have in their new lives and learning how to cope with them while supporting each other. Also, it shows the personality traits Rapunzel has that could be troublesome in real life as she has so little experience of the world. She matures so much during the series and has to experience so much more before deciding to settle with Eugine. Which is a great thing they worked on coz Eugine has gone through lots of ups and downs during life and had his adventures. Rapunzel has so little knowledge of the world and still needs to experience so much before getting married, and the series works on that greatly alongside the main storyline, which evolves around the origins of the magic flower with healing power.

The thing about Eugene in Tangled is he didn't change for her. He shed the persona he had put on himself, to make himself more attractive, more successful, more whatever all he thought he needed to be and just was himself when he was with her. He didn't change, he just relaxed. Which didn't mean he lost everything he had become with the persona, some of it remained. Some of it was the same. He just left behind the parts that weren't true to himself.

I think the Cinderella ball scene might have had some omitted dialogue, like how in a training montage you don't see the character do all of the individual pushups and situps and weight curls. You just see a few individual moments to illustrate what's broadly going on. That said, I'd love to see you tear into Sleeping Beauty, because where Snow White has big "sheltered and emotionally abused 15 y/o talking about her crush" energy, Sleeping Beauty decides that this guy she meets one time is the love of her life because she had a dream about him once. And I'd like to see if there's parallels between Kristoff and prince Bad Guy in Frozen. Or with prince Bad Guy and literally any other disney love interest. Are the criticisms they make using the prince valid?

This movie is one of my favorites because of the factor that these two robots are able to care for each other through "show, don't tell", and I'm excited on your takes on how a relationship works with different forms of communication and love languages.

I think another key reason Rapunzel and Eugene's relationship doesn't feel like the "bad boy with a heart of gold that changes for a woman" trope is because Rapunzel isn't trying to change him. She likes what she sees as he changes, but she didn't see broken boy and go "I fix him now" which is often the catalyst for the guy's change in things that follow that trope. And you guys touched on how banking on someone changing is not a good place to start a relationship when you were talking about Simba and Nala so I need not expound on that.

Yeah exactly. This is also my preferred method of Enemies to Lovers where villains leave villainy behind for a hero*; it isn't the hero intentionally trying to redeem them (regardless of what they may or may not desperately want of the villain), but the villain wanting to do better than they were because of how the hero is. Might be some bumps on the road, but that just makes a story more interesting imho. *and yes I do mean that bc I love me some fallen hero romances too.

It's so rare to actually see anything that discusses the topic of possessive tendencies and the possessive person being made to recognize that their behavior is toxic. It was so nice to see someone show a relationship that started off fine, but started to go off the rails because the two characters didn't want the same things. It was good to see that even if the two characters are looking for something different in their lives, it doesn't mean that you can't continue with the relationship, it just means you have to recognize each other's needs and move forward with those needs in mind.

Tangled and Wreck-It-Ralph are two movies that I really liked how they handled the love trope. Eugene is a genuine kind person who is honest with Rapunzel from the start. He doesn’t fall in love with her immediately. They talk about their feelings and thoughts with each other and support each other. There’s still growing that needed to happen with the relationship and it is handled very well in the animated series but I loved their relationship and I liked how Rapunzel was an independent, though naive woman who could hold her own. Felix and Calhoun’s relationship is such a fascinating one because on surface level it seems like they wouldn’t work together but they fit each other so well. Just like y’all said they’re salty and sweet and bring out characteristics in each other that they had never really explored at all and it helps them to grow as individuals. This was such a cool video idea and very fascinating hearing your thoughts. I’ve thought about the healthiness and not great parts of these relationships and definitely how as the times have progressed forward woman falling in love with a man she just met because he sung her a song and then kissed her while she was unconscious is not a true love relationship. I want to see more relationships not just love relationships but more friend ones too.

Great episode! You should do the toxic relationships on most of Harrison Ford's movies (Star Wars, Blade Runner, Indiana Jones...)

I love how Disney didn’t try to make Felix and Calhoun about “Fix-it”ing Calhouns PTSD. That he didn’t ask her to “move on” or “be okay” when those triggers happen. Even at their wedding, when normally any concept of a previous tragic marriage is avoided like the plague they still accommodated her needs by having EVERY soldier aiming at the church window. And Felix didn’t think that was something that needed fixing. I think it’s a beautiful story and for people with PTSD it isn’t common enough.

When I saw that scene, I thought it was everyone in her squad deciding “AINT NO WAY IT HAPPENING AGAIN” all as one, and she didn’t ask anyone to do it. They did it on their own. I like your interpretation more.

@MrMo456 You'd be surprised! The crew actually only paired Felix and Calhoun after realizing they had chemistry, and seeing that Felix's design was easier to translate to 3D when he was alongside Calhoun, so a lot of the decisions about their relationship were made seriously. The cutscenes of Calhoun's tragic backstory look funny to viewers (and players of Hero's Duty) but the negative feelings she has about them are real and it's cool how they contrast this (the music stops and her voice cracks once the cutscene ends and she tells Felix to get out of the shuttle, since she's in pain). It's kinda like Ralph's story - his game is idyllic and everything looks fine on the outside, but just offscreen he's living a lonely life until the events of the movie

@Hanmacx Possible but not necessarily, since Brad getting eaten by a cy-bug (which flies directly to him and only attacks him) is part of a backstory cutscene rather than gameplay. Definitely still a good idea to keep weapons aimed at the window in case a bug does come in, being how dangerous Hero's Duty is, but it's also a peace-of-mind thing for Tamora (Calhoun). She doesn't want anything to happen to Felix on her watch no matter how improbable it is, especially in a place where she already has traumatic memories

Honestly I will defend Cinderella here since she has been my favorite Disney princess since before I can remember. Having all the movies in context which is 2 and 3 but 2 doesn't really add much so just 3. Cinderella and the prince spent a whole evening together from sunset to midnight talking, dancing, walking the gardens and they are about kiss when the clock strikes and she has to run away. Then he chases after her trying to get a name to the girl and all he is left with is a glass slipper. Now something that is not in the original movie is that in the 3rd movie we find out that he does remember her face because when Anastasia , her mother and Drizella try to trick the prince by using magic to make the shoe fit Anastasia, the prince doesn't fall for it. He politely says that there must have been a mistake cause the girl he danced with wasn't Anastasia and that the shoe might fit many girls in the kingdom and says he will arrange a ride for them to return home. He turns to leave the room but the evil step mother uses magic to change the prince's memory of that night and make him think it was Anastasia. I believe the 3rd movie fixes any criticisms of the story and the prince's bland character by giving every character more to expand on. And as u can see in later films like 2 and 3 they are both very happy with each other. Cinderella has been my favorite for all of my life and I used to watch it on repeat as a child and I believe it is amazing film with a wonderful love story of two people in similarly unhappy circumstances. Cinderella is looking for an escape from her life and cruel family members and the prince is also looking for an escape because of his responsibilities and his father always nagging him to find a wife/gf (which I am sure many people can relate to). These two find comfort and companionship with each other and I love it.

Your next set of Disney couples should be Bernard and Bianca, O’Malley and Duchess, Belle and Beast, Bo Beep and Woody, Kiara and Kovu, Tarzan and Jane Esmeralda and Phoebus, and Anya (aka Anastasia) and Dimitri (They’re not Disney technically but 20th Century Fox is owned by Disney)

@Kristina Huchison The gods are not real people, the're myth characters. They can't disrespect them. However they should think twice about making a movie like this and find out how write a story about someone who was enslaved, abused and raped in reality, or just how to portray the travelers' cruelty towards people who already lived on that land without depicting both sides as wrong. You don't care about something that doesn't involve you? Cool, but It think it's better if you keep it to yourself. Also I would be glad you stopped putting words in my mouth and make assumptions about me. I could do it too even though I don't you.

@Red panda oh come on. ITS A DISNEY MOVIE. You do realize in the actual myth about Heracles he actually KILLS Megara and their children because of Hera? There is a point to be made Disney shouldn’t have used actual names, but talking just DISNEY Pocahontas and John Smith are actually one of the healthiest couples. Let me guess, you think John Rolfe in reality actually loved her? It was literally a political marriage and he was actually pretty abusive towards her unfortunately. Go watch a documentary if you want the real story of Matoaka so bad. Disney is an entertainment studio, NOT A HISTORY CHANNEL

@Saewon Park I feel like I can’t view it as creepy because I always assumed Wall-E is just too innocent to ever be a creep. He just wants to mirror how humans take care of people they care for, even if she isn’t awake for it. He’s not doing it maliciously.

I want to give Cinderella a little more credit. She was the only person at the ball with no interest in Prince Charming (she didn't even know who he was!). All the other guests were there to secure a marriage, she just wanted a nice night out for what was probably the first time. She was the only guest who saw him as a person and not a title, and he showed her kindness and affection.

@A blinding light that no longer exists I suppose it's a matter of personal experience. I have little appeal to the opposite sex, why I don't know, so if someone was attracted to me enough to take the trouble to find me when I was dying and kissed me goodbye - the only kiss I would ever have in my life, remember, if I were actually in the same position as Snow White or Cinderella - I would be deeply touched, not find it creepy. I also have high standards for what 'attraction' means, not love yet but certainly not mere lust - if I truly felt attraction at our one meeting, there would have to have been some evidence of a good personality and not just good looks. Of course I would not get married without getting to know them better, but if I were dying there would be no time; it would be nicer to die knowing someone desired you - even if, supposing, you survived, got to know them, and decided to just be friends and not get together after all. The kiss was still a nice gesture, at least for someone like me. I know Cinderella cuts immediately to the wedding, but I guess I always assumed that there was a time lapse between the shoe scene and then, considering how long it takes to plan a royal wedding! Cinderella and the Prince probably would have been able to spend time together then. And Snow White and Florian had to travel all the way back to his kingdom; if she had fallen out of love with him on the way, she could have gone back to the dwarves. At any rate that's how I usually deal with the artistic necessity of speed of film relationships!

@Esztella Kiss how can you say they didn't talk to each other?? They spent hours dancing it kind of makes it seem that they talked for some time. Also I don't understand the part where you say he forgot her face. Maybe I don't remember the movie? He didn't know her name nor where she lived or where she came from she obviously didn't wanted him to know in case the stepmother finds out.. How could he found her if he didn't know where to start??? The only clue were the shoes . Again maybe it's my memory failing me but I don't see the issue 😀

@Fanfals I always thought it wasn't that he'd actually forgotten, but wanted to make sure a lookalike didn't try to sneak in. Think about how you have to enter passwords, scan ID, etc., to get into work, when both you and reception desk are laughing because, of course, after you've worked there every day for months, they know what you look like and that you work there. But if someone who seriously resembled you decided to knock you out and try to take your place and steal workplace secrets, facial recognition alone would not be enough for security. Chances were the prince, not having the advantages of modern technology, figured he would not find another girl who shared both Cinderella's facial features and shoe size. Also; in the original it was a masked ball and that's why there was no question of him recognizing her by sight. Perhaps Disney should have thought to keep that detail in.

With Simba and Nala, their relationship reminds me of my parents. Great parents however there were times where their arguments would end the world. Like the worst arguments ever. But in the end of the day they would always finish the arguments that day and not let it go foward the next day. It gives me plenty of perspective on how a healthy relationship work.
