The Adventures of Pinocchio - When a book is made into a movie, certain scenes and overall big pictures sometimes get “lost in translation.” This certainly is the case for Carlo Collodi’s story The Adventures of Pinocchio. Many things occur in the book that do not take place in the Disney movie Pinocchio, originally produced in 1940, and rereleased in 1992. A possible reason for some of the changes could regard audiences. The Adventures of Pinocchio was written in Italian in 1883. Perhaps that is why the book focuses more on morality and is a teach-you-a-lesson about the consequences of being bad kind of book, while the movie more gently tries to get the same message across by adding and deleting scenes from the origina...   [tags: Books, Film] 899 words

The 1940 Disney Movie Pinocchio and Native American Literature - Native American literature began before pen and paper, and before the Europeans came to North America.

The oral tradition was not only the telling of a story, but a performance to retell the story of many different themes and ideas. These ideas include a tribe's cultural background, historical events, but most Native American literature contains morals or being creation myths or folklore....   [tags: geppetto, childhood media, jiminy]

Characteristics of Antagonists in Disney Movies - Movies have entertained crowds since the Lumière brothers first introduced their early version of “cinématographe” to the public in Paris, France at the Grand Café on the Boulevard de Capuchines in1895 (Walter).

While the technology and special effects may have changed through the years, the one constant in film remains the theme of protagonist versus antagonist; or good versus evil. Ever since Disney released its first animated picture, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs in 1937, Disney has made an art of perfecting the antagonist role in animated movies....   [tags: Greed, Jealousy, Power]
