Project Diseny

Parajunkee Design

I am going to participate in Project Disney hosted by Picture Me Reading !  I love Disney and always have.  I just love the movies... stories.. everything. 

The plan is to tackle all of the Disney films, re-reading the classic stories and tales that inspired many of them and to look at how the changes the filmmakers made, the new elements they introduced and the essential elements they kept. We will, of course, be talking about the films as movies as well, saying why we enjoy them and what some of our favorite moments are, but our focus will be on looking at them as adaptations. For the films that are not drawn from any one work we’ll be looking at some of the possible literary influences that we see in the stories.

Here is the schedule:
