Re: Jab's Builds! (Hades! Circe! Mulan! Shang! Shan Yu! Tarzan! Jane!)

Ironically, Disney's Tarzan softens one character, Kerchak, who's an unrepentant monster in Burroughs, and dramatically hardens another in his place. I didn’t realize Kerchak wasn’t a Disney original. Actually, I’ve never read a real version of Tarzan before, so I do t know anything about him, real...

Re: The Hunchback of Notre Dame

\--While the Acting( save for Frollo ) is forgettable,the BASIC storyline was a good attempt by Disney to "lighten" an otherwise rather Dark literary work. That in and of itself is the problem. If you want a happy ending from Hugo, adapt Les Mis. I'm not even bothered as much by the happy ending ve...

Re: The Hunchback of Notre Dame

Lindsay Ellis has a really good video essay about the movie, and the adaptations that have followed Victor Hugo's work for years. His original story is very grim, and VERY inappropriate for Disney, which right away should have been a warning sign. In the original, Esmeralda isn't actually a Gyspy- ...

Re: Roxanne

About the Performer: I have no idea who Kellie Martin is, and have never seen any of her stuff. She played a lot of minor roles in the '80s, I guess, and even got her own series in 1994, called Christy (??). She was on ER for a couple of years, but her career has mostly been bit parts and, currentl...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Beauty and the Beast! Belle! The Beast!)

Annoyingly, they've never given him a real name, even in post-film stories like the Descendants. Head canon? Jean, after Cocteau. Or possibly Robert, after Mr. Benson.

Thank you! Still engaged in that other project, which leaves me with no time to put together character builds and backgrounds, unfortunately.

THE FOX AND THE HOUND (1981):
Written by:
Daniel P. Mannix (original novel), Ted Berman, Larry Clemmons, David Michener, Peter Young & Burny Mattinson
Either this or an early 80s re-release of Song of the South was the first Disney movie I ever saw in the theatre.

Re: Jab's Builds! (Baloo! Shere Khan! Kaa! Robin Hood! The Sheriff!)

I'm fairly sure that Disney's Prince John is intended to reference the portrayal of him in the play and later film The Lion in Winter.

Re: Doc Savage

This is the 2e build for Doc that I came up with more than a decade ago. I see a lot of things I would do differently today, but the skeleton would be much the same, I think.

Re: Batgirl III's Character Thread (Largo)

The name Largo, though not much else, was also used for a major villain in the 1980s anime Bubblegum Crisis, one of a couple of James Bond references therein.
