happiness is porn where the one sticking their dick inside the other one’s body moans more
This was ad-libbed by the voice actor, Craig Ferguson and they chose to keep it in because they loved it. Kids won’t get it but adults will be thinking “did he just imply what I think he implied?”
And later the director confirmed it.
DeBlois revealed that, the reason Gobber never got married, is because he is homosexual. This makes him the first homosexual character of the franchise, and even DreamWorks itself.
I FUCKING CALLED IT
The first homosexual character of dreamworks was never outright said to be homosexual at all until after the movies came out and was left to be inferred from an ad-libbed line and this is literally the most accurate representation of just how “progressive” dreamworks is on representation collectively.
Dreamworks has more representation then Disney does in their movies though. Sure, Disney does an event at their park for it, but DreamWorks doesn’t have that liberty unfortunately, since they don’t have parks. So please stop DreamWorks in particular when there are plenty of other companies that can be considered at fault.
Dreamworks last movie with a PoC was Sinbad, and the Prince of Egypt before that. Almost all of their characters are white and most of their leads are male. As far I as I know, Home got pushed back another year, and the implied homosexuality doesn’t count as representation because it’s essentially an afterthought. At least, as far as I know. So I’m not sure what you mean by that because from where I’m sitting, their representation is kind of weak.
1) How to Train Your Dragon 2 had Asian characters in it (Drago and his men) (and the rest of the characters are Vikings so yeah they’re gonna be white.)
(And no, I myself am not white, but a PoC.)
2) The Croods most definitely had a female lead and is currently getting a sequel where she most likely will be the lead again.
And 3) You’re still getting after Dreamworks despite the fact that Disney is even worse about homosexual representation in their movies and shows, where they MAKE SURE that the audience knows that pretty much all of their characters are straight.
Dreamworks can’t outright say in one of their movies that a character is gay due to the fact that they can’t afford to lose fans due to homophobia. They’re currently low on budget as it is, UNLIKE Disney, a multibillion dollar company that can totally afford it.
So before you slander DreamWorks, I ask that you please take a look at Disney and a lot of other animation companies. (I do not mean offense by this, but please don’t slander this animation company for stuff that it sometimes can’t help.) (and no, I don’t hate Disney, but what I do hate is when people slander Dreamworks about representation that even Disney doesn’t have.)
1) Disney went under fire for “it’s historically accurate” for having all white characters in frozen, so I don’t see why that’s a good enough excuse for dreamworks.
2) I love the croods but there is no refuting that they were white, and historically speaking, they would not have been irl. Hence another opportunity to have characters of color but they opted not to.
And 3) I don’t even consider things like that representation honestly. The only studio that’s made a legit attempt at a canon gay character that would count is Laika in Paranorman. Dreamworks and Disney don’t have homosexual representation and it’s something they both need to work on. It’s a step in the door but honestly it’s not a big enough step. I’m not slandering dreamworks by any means, but people make excuses for what dreamworks does. I also don’t like the notion that having PoC or gay characters is a risk and I don’t think it should be considered that because it’s an excuse. And Disney having PoC isn’t “shocking” and while they have a long way to go, they’re doing better than dreamworks Disney: Aladdin, Pocahontas, mulan, PATF, pocahontas 2, mulan 2, the Aladdin sequels, brother bear, emperors new grove, bh6, Moana. Dreamworks: Prince of Egypt, Sinbad, home. And I’m not offended at all, I don’t mind the dialogue at all and I think that we probably won’t agree, but I think we could both agree that both studios still do have a long way to go as far as equal representation.
I can agree with you on most parts, especially the fact that animation companies still have a long way to go in the representation department. Except for two things.
1) Frozen went under fire because the original tale DID have people of color, but Disney changed it so that it took place where there would only be white characters. and
2) Disney has had a while to represent minorities, while DreamWorks has had only about one fifth of the amount of time they have had, and they’re currently still low on budget, so they can’t exactly risk anything. (Unlike Disney, which has plenty of money that can be squandered.)
Either way, I think we can both agree that PoC, females, and lgbt groups could use a lot more representation in animation as a whole.
i would like to point out that such dreamworks movies as the road to el dorado and spirit: stallion of the cimarron also had prominent poc characters (the entire population of el dorado, and little creek, respectively)
this is not to say that i am not disappointed in dw because of the several missed opportunities they’ve had to be more inclusive because i sure as hell am very disappointed in their frequent failure to portray non-white non-straight humans (as opposed to their culturally diverse animal cast), and they too have played the “historical accuracy” card and changed poc characters to white characters to suit their fancy
i mean rise of the guardians’ toothiana was supposed to be southeast asian and the characters in httyd being vikings doesn’t justify their homogeneity at all (on the contrary, actually, as vikings got around a lot)
the animation industry as a whole fucking sucks at diversity and both disney and dw as the most prominent mainstream studios have the moral obligation to do what they can to change it, and both of them have done equally sucky job so to me it seems pretty pointless to argue which is worse (on the whole disney has more movies with poc but disney also has more movies, period)
they both have good movies and bad movies and the next ten years will be very interesting in regards to this issue, and i really hope that both studios will rise to the challenge so that we won’t have to latch onto vague shit like gobber’s comment here
and the award for the worst title of the century goes to…
