The uncanny valley concept was also discussed in 2004 in the CGI filed during the box office battle royal between two blockbuster films, Warner Brothers’ The Polar express and the Pixar’s The Incredibles.

In the movie ‘’13th’’ by Ava DuVernay minorities were seen as; monsters, animals, rapists, and murderers in the eyes of the American Justice System for nearly 200 years and still are today. The US System is built to oppress and produce fear in the hearts of white families of black men since Jamestown, Virginia 1619. The painted portrait of black men during slavery was being ignorant, rebellious, and thugs that have longevity stereotypes.

Any child who was fortunate enough to be raised anywhere except the underside of a rock has certainly been exposed to Walt Disney movies at some point in his or her life.

Most children and parents alike probably assume that this colorful tale was woven straight from the brain of Walt Disney himself. However, to the shock of most viewers, this feature film draws its premise from Hans Christian Andersen’s 1837 fairytale, “The Little Mermaid”. Although both stories feature the same “little mermaid” as the protagonist, the presentation of this mythical creature has evolved drastically from the original fairytale. This essay will identify the changes made in the

As Universal Pictures hired away Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, who was the character I created in the year of 1927, everything was taken away from me.

Being the first CGI-animated film to be rated R by the MPAA is not the only title of which Sausage Party can be proud. The irreverent movie is also the highest grossing film of its category with a box office of almost 140 million dollars as of November 2016. The openly parodic way in which the film makes fun of Pixar and Disney narrative tropes, like the singing moments and its strong critique of religious traditions, has not damaged in the slightest the response to Sausage Party, which received positive and encouraging reception both from the critics and the media press, whose only apprehension concerning the film is in the exploitative working conditions of the animators. However, this paper is not concerned neither with the actual story of the movie nor with the exploitation of the artists of Sausage Party, on the contrary, the object of this inquiry takes off exactly from the film’s most emblematic title: that of being the first CGI-animated adult movie. It is indeed peculiar that a communication product that has traditionally been considered for children, animation, was, on the other hand, appropriated by the
