Your Hercules musical outline is great! :D It's a shame they don't pay more attention to Herc. Have you seen video of the musical they did on the Cruise Line? They did a short 'Muse-ical' for a while.

Thank you! I had so much fun writing it. I haven’t seen Muse-ical live but I have seen a couple of YouTube clips. It looks pretty cute.

Having a full Hercules stage production is my new life goal. If it isn’t written by the time I’m retired then I am going to work on it myself!!!

the Triplets of Belleville is about an elderly woman searching for her son who was kidnapped in the middle of a Tour de France race. It’s largely free of dialogue, but the sound effects and such are wonderful. It was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Animated Feature—it lost to Finding Nemo.

A Cat in Paris is about a young girl and her cat who discover mysteries in the course of one night. It was also nominated for an Oscar for Best Animated Feature, but it lost to Rango.

Persepolis is based on an autobiographical graphic novel by Marjane Satrapi about her early life in Iran. It was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Animated Feature, but it lost to Ratatouille.

the Illusionist is about an aging magician and an imaginative young girl who form a father/daughter relationship. It was also nominated for a Best Animation Oscar, but lost to Toy Story 3.

The Rabbi’s Cat is a story about a cat who swallows a parrot and gains the ability to speak like a human. It is set in 1920’s Algeria.

Ernest & Celestine is the adorable story about a big bear and a little mouse who forge an unlikely friendship. It was also nominated for an Oscar in Best Animated Picture, but lost to Frozen.

Kirikou and the Sorceress is a story inspired by West African folklore that tells the story of Kirikou, a boy who was born with the ability to walk and talk, who saves his people from an evil witch. The film was popular enough to spawn sequels and a stage adaptation.

A Monster in Paris is a 3D animated musical film that is reaaaaalllly loosely based on the Phantom of the Opera. It’s set in 1910 and is about, surprisingly, a monster that lives in Paris, and his love for a young singer.

The King and the Mockingbird is an 80’s film about a cruel king titled Charles V + III = VIII + VIII = XVI, who is obsessed with a young shepherdess, and whose attempts to capture the young girl are thwarted by a mockingbird whose wife the King had previously killed.  

Those are probably the most famous of the feature length animated films.

But the animated short films are just as glorious. Here’s a compilation of a bunch of short films and I can link you to others as well. 

Sorry for the long answer but I just really love French animation.

Reblogging over here. French animation tends to do better with diversity than Disney does, hahaha.

Hercules on Broadway

I know this is a repost but I worked so hard on it that I don’t want to hide it behind a read more tag. I was just thinking that a Broadway production of Hercules would be the best thing to ever happen on this earth and it would have to have so many more songs than the film. So here is my proposal for what songs would be added to make this a Broadway show. Alan Menken listen up. I literally want to help write this lol. Warning: this post is VERY LONG

i hope that, wherever my hair ties go, they’re happy. that’s all that matters

NO! Dont let your cat play with your hair ties! Cats end up eating them and they get tangled in their intestines and end up dying. My cat has ended up getting two surgeries to remove bunches of elastics from his stomach!

Ugh this sucks. I just took my cat to the vet last week actually and the vet also said don’t give your cats hair ties because they are dangerous. This is so sad because hair ties were my cat’s favorite toy :(
