Hey Disney Fanatics! We’ve got a question for you. Should Disney movies be digitally enhanced or not? What do you think?
While watching Disney animated films as children, we were enamored with their enthralling plotlines and enviable and admirable characters, and strong personalities. There have been a number of classic Disney films re-released with new features and digital upgrades since the launch of the “Disney Vault”.
Anyways, did you ever heard of a saying: “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!”. If not, then well, it’s a well-known saying. That means Disney’s experts need to start paying attention to this one more closely as well. More and more classic films are being remastered for today’s high-definition televisions, and this includes, of course, some of our favorite Disney animated shows. Sadly, the outcomes aren’t always spectacular and phenomenon. But unfortunately, some restorations seem to have lost the finer details that made the originals so appealing.
Let’s consider the story of ‘Cinderella’. The new Blu-ray edition of one of Disney’s most-loved classics is not nearly as good as the original on tape. Don’t believe us? Then just keep scrolling down to have a look at some tweets of Cinderella movie that will make you go “ugh!”
Some Disney fans have taken to Twitter to rant and rave about their displeasure with the Blu-ray release.
Disney’s restoration process for high-profile releases is completely destructive of the original image because it rotoscopes every frame of character animation and isolates it from the original scene.
1. The Blu-ray version lacks the finer details of Cinderella’s arm and gown.
2. But, where are the fairy dust above Cinderella in the Blu-ray version?
3. Have a closer look at his hand’s position. Where is the detailing man?
The color of the prince’s trousers is completely changed. Oh gosh! Where’s the red color in his trouser?
4. Lining on his shoulders is the same color as the parts themselves, but darker than the lining.
Instead of the brownish color, the lining on the shoulder area is blue. Like dude, who asked to change his dress’s color scheme?
5. The bright white sparkles and red curtain lines are changed.
Does a digitally transformed version of one of these classic films truly outweigh the original’s grainy, smudgy, and vintage classic look? Well, the majority of Disney fans disagree. Both the new updated and Blu-ray versions of these Disney films are unappealing to them. Sigh!!
Disney movies were always known for their retro and classy appearance. The audience has been enthralled by the attention to detail in the scenes and the portrayal of each character. However, when it comes to Blu-ray movies, there are so many overlays and details missing that it ceases to be appealing. Let’s keep scrolling for more hilarious versions of Blu-ray:
6. Aside from the red stairwell and her perfectly shown arms, this photo features an exquisitely detailed gown with sparkles.
But in this Blu-ray version, what happened to the marble staircases that were left yellow? What’s up with the yellow lines on the stairs and the blue spots on her head? Ugh!!
7. In the Blu-ray version, the light blue blouse of the fairy is missing!
8. That’s terrible!!
In the first image, you can see an intense glimmer and an intricate gown, and a delicate view from the street. Behind, the palace is emitting a warm glow.
But in the Blu-ray version – the second image, everything is a shade of green that is both icy and eerie. Staircases have blue shadows, and the top piece of the carriage has a green shadow. Why everything is so greenish? Nobody knows!!
9. Carriage and horses’ harnesses are adorned with copper brass.
What’s the difference between the blue and the green horses? The Pink tales and no detail? Is there no-snag on the driver’s jacket? Like, everything is so green and bluish in this version.
10. Hey, where does the palace’s warm, glowing light come from?
Let’s see what Stephen Duignan has to say on the process of “restoration”
Not only Cinderella but there are a lot of other Disney Movies that were restored. Have a look at a few of them below:
The loss of fuzziness and details of the tree is missing here.
Here’s another Blu-ray version of Robinhood.
Noticed something? Yeah, in the old version, the wanted poster appeared to be made of old paper and the printing was clear and crisp. But, in another version, it appears to be flat and out of focus.
Well, many other Disney fans have noticed changes after watching the Blu-ray versions of their favorite movies.
