I know you missed me when I'm back and better than ever. So today I'm thinking about, I'm feeling really Disney. I'm feeling really, just, you know, so now, mind you, I am a really big fan of Disney. I love Disney so much. You don't understand. Okay, let me go ahead and give you the backstory. Okay, we're here to hear me talk. Right, okay, so I'm gonna get into it. Okay, so my favorite, I'll start with that favorite Disney movie. It's also it also encompasses my favorite Disney Princess, but that's because it encompasses my favorite Disney Princess, that it is my favorite Disney movie because it just has to be, it has to be that way. I don't know what I mean. Anyway, The Little Mermaid, I want to be for the people. I I want to see what to see. Young danson stolen along fell noise. What do you call him streets up where they walk up where they're on up where they stay all day and dusk, sundering free wish I could be look here, you want some more of that down note my band Lab. Okay, Lynn Tennison, Lynn Tennison anyway, R E O is you don't understand how happy I am. Halle bailey is playing. I don't even know who that woman was, I didn't even know who she was before she is, who she is. But back then when I found out who she was and who she, I was so happy. That's what brought me to discover her in her beautiful, beautiful, beautiful voice. Like I mean talk about like they found the perfect person and mind you, this is with me not being in the running, I'm here, but with me not even included. You know, not even thinking about Little Olen, there is definitely every merit to the idea that she is literally the epitome epitome epitome of R. E. O. She has that publicly. The way the director descended her pivot. I mean teeth and nail like to the T. He literally encompassed everything I'm gonna say about her, she literally is and I'm glad he did because it shows that he's really Well acquainted with the the the original from 1989. And when I say that makes me so happy, but we all know this, Come on, who wouldn't be finding out. Their favorite Disney movie is being made by an amazing director who's actually chosen to, despite all of the horrible remakes live action remakes we've had in the past decade and a half, you know, um there's more decades who's managed to actually, you know, acquaint themselves well with the material, you know? Yes, you would think, you know. But anyway, so I'm a very big Disney fan, Let's get to the main topic, Princess and the Frog. Now, I just saw that movie last week and literally blew my own mind like it's a great experience, you should try it sometime, but whoa, wow, you don't understand like, this movie is beyond, it's beyond like it was very good. It was very good. It really was, it really is. You know, and I do have Kwan's we will get into that. I break them down, lay down the law, you know me and if you don't well I don't think any of you do look at me, I'm losing it, you will get to know me and you will understand what I mean. But don't get me wrong, I love Disney but I have to it's because I love you. It's because I love you that I'm doing this Disney. No, this no, this so uh huh, I'm going to start off with the positive. The positive. So we've got an amazing entrance, you know, um introduction to the film to get you really well acquainted and settled in and I love how in the beginning of the film. Well before we even get into this, let me I'm sorry, hold up, hold up, I've got to take it back. Okay, so I grew up with Disney on my life. Of course we know this is the first real black Disney Princess who was acknowledged as black from the jump. She's also the darkest Disney Princess. Um, but I grew up with black Disney Princesses and I'm sick of you folks out there who are claiming this isn't a thing. Okay, But it's a real thing, you know? Um, as morada from hunchback of Notre dame was the first one I remember and she was clearly a black gypsy. Um, who else? The only other person I can think of before Tianna is kira Kita from Atlantis and no one can dispute that. No one can dispute that. Those people were black. I've had people dispute that before and it didn't really make sense to me. I was like, okay, look here, pacific islander. What do you think these people are her father, the king. I mean, just just go back and look up these people, you know what I'm saying? Look up the culture, look up the mask, you remember the mass that they wore and the, the remember the, the floating heads at the end of the movie that like, you know, in the beginning of the movie, they took her mom and in the end of the movie they took her, you know, remember how they looked? Remember the aesthetics and in the tribal painting on them and stuff like that. Where else have you seen things like that aside from africa you know what I'm saying? The type the way that that was done and not just that like that's getting really deep. Just look at the people like no you can't go to google and type in the people of Atlantis or the king of Atlantis in the loss of the empire. The Disney movie automate it. You can't, by the way they need to do a live action of that. You cannot look that up, see that man and then tell me he's not black, you know what I'm saying? You can't look it up. And not only did the actress who played the voice of kid to not only is she black, she also played Susie and um you know Carmichael and I risk bats and she played um number four or was it number two? Think it's number four year. Number two was the heavy seven. Number four and um code name kids next door. Um few other people but you cannot like acknowledge that these people are anything other than black. You know what I'm saying? It was just it was real talk real talk. So these are the black people I grew up, you know what I'm saying and it was wonderful. It really was one you don't understand how amazing it was and I didn't even understand how amazing it was when I was younger to see these people represent me in these phones and in these movies when I was younger and um you know a part of not realizing that as a kid is the pleasure that I got from that, the benefit that I got from that, not having to realize that you know by seeing a great void of black people, you know, or a great um situation of it being devoid all Disney movies being devoid of black people and black presence like you know, especially when it comes to like prison Princesses and and then characters, you know um one of the other characters in the in Atlantis was um black as well, she was Latina but she was black. She um as well, she had uh it was her job, she was the mechanic and I'll tell you that old white lady cracked me up though. Oh my goodness, she said Martha. Oh Martha, oh my goodness, we took a suitcase. He ain't coming back. I can't do it. You don't understand the movie is hilarious, go back and
