Disney's Magic (Part 1)

What to do on a Sunday afternoon? After having a good lunch, Juan and I decided to tour Melbourne again, but this time instead of shopping, we went to the acmi (Australian Centre for the Moving Image) for the exhibition of Dreams Come True. Dreams Come Trues ~ The Art of Disney's Classic Fairy Tales, just the title is enough to make me fired up for the whole exhibition. Indeed, I've grown up with Disney animation and movie, and is very familiar with Disney productions such as Snow White, Cinderella, the Sleeping Beauty, Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin and the Little Mermaid, just to name a few. I believe most of the people grew up with Disney's memories, and most of us are even supporters of major Disney's productions until now. Well, all credits go to Walter Elias Disney, better known as Walt Disney, and one of his famous quote is "it's kind of fun to do the impossible". Although long cartoons were ridiculous during his time and most people (from Hollywood) think that cartoons that were made into movie (which are basically 2 hours long) are a waste of money and effort during the 1930s, but thank God for Walt Disney's personality that was persistent and 'thinking out of the box', or else we would not have such sweet Disney memories in our childhood times.

So as an end note, I will be anticipating this December's Tangled, based on the fairy tale, Rapunzel. Do check out the trailers and let Disney's magic enchant you again!
