A young man floats out of the water, bathed in the intense moonlight. This is JACK FROST - thin, pale, barefoot, his tousled hair frosted white.
((I just want to point out that in the left gif, there is a puff of white frosted breath coming from Jack’s mouth. This is something that happens when moist warm breath collides with cold air. I’ve met a lot of people who describe Jack as being freezing cold inside but, if that were the case, his breath would be cold and would not be visible like this. Just saying.))
(There’s also the possibility that this is because he’s JUST risen, though. Since I don’t think we ever see a warm breath come out of him past this point? I was always under the impression that that was Jack exhaling his last normal, human breath as he takes his first new one.)
((I really agree with youhavetobelieveinme’s theory. After all, if you look at the scene where Jack is in Antarctica—the coldest continent on Earth—Jack’s breath doesn’t come out in puffs of frost. And in that scene, he’s fighting Pitch and panting and breathing quite heavily. Even in this gif alone, we can see the warmth slipping. As Jack continues to pant, the frost gets thinner and thinner, and eventually dissipates.
So taken as a whole, it would make sense that Jackson Overland breathes his last breath in this scene, and Jack Frost breathes his first breaths in this scene. It is a rebirth scene, after all. It’s a baptism by fire—or, in this case, ice—almost. Gone is the warm, burning humanity, and in its place, there’s frost: playful, beautiful, and timeless. Which, when worded like that, sounds really dark, but it fits Jack really, really well.))

This fandom comes up with beautiful ways to describe things. I never would have noticed a detail like that, I’m glad I found this thread to point it out.
Sir Phillip Sidney argued in his essay, “In Defense of Poetry” (in response to people who claimed that poetry was deceitful because it was all lies) that fiction can never lie because it never claims to be truth. In the same way, Disney never claims to be giving us an accurate historical document. And, as we all know from reading the Diaries of John Smith, the actual historical documents relating to this story are also problematic, and, I would argue, much much more so. Anyone with an intellectual mind should be able to recognize what type of document they are looking at and analyze it accordingly.
I like how this guy expects six year olds to “recognize the type of document they are looking at and analyze it accordingly”
idk I mean it’s kind of funny how some of the responders to this topic illustrate exactly why it’s not okay to misrepresent native culture & history in children’s movies
ya’ll are living proof that people don’t understand, even after viewing them, how problematic there are. The real story of Pocahontas sucks a lot? Here’s a thought: don’t rewrite it in a way that makes the white guys look like heroes instead of kidnappers! Hmmm
reblogging from my personal. For earlier response that gives a more fact based argument against that type of logic/explains how it is harmful, click here.
did you know that teachers are instructed to get in between two boys in an altercation and break their eye contact because boys will disengage once the immediate situation is interrupted but they’re instructed to like never ever get in between two girls in a fight because girls wont stop after they lose sight and will actively try to go through whatever’s in between them and teachers are supposed to wait for security to break the shit apart
teenage girls will fuck your shit up

Out of the tragedy of the massive garment factory collapse in Bangladesh, workers have now won two major reforms:
1) A panel to raise the minimum wage in the garment industry and
2) The right to form trade unions without prior permission from factory owners.
Still, more pressure—and responsibility—need to be placed upon America’s big-brand companies to win further protections.
