JACK ZIPES BREAKING THE DISNEY SPELL PDF

To begin the article, Zipes first introduces the topic of fairy tales by incorporating a brief overview of the evolution and how the meanings changed over time. Before the tales were ever incorporated into films, Zipes argues that fairy tales were often used to relieve social conflict by describing past experiences to their audience. Whether it was to gain a sense of community in a tribe or to even display opposition against political figures, fairytales throughout history gave some sort of message to the intended audience and created a voice that was heard above all else when reading. To writers like Perrault and the Brothers Grimm, this message was the sole purpose of writing these tales. Zipes believes Disney manipulated his audience and caught their attention through elaborate images, bright colors, and loud sounds without incorporating the true message of the story.

To begin the article, Zipes first introduces the topic of fairy tales by incorporating a brief overview of the evolution and how the meanings changed over time.

Before the tales were ever incorporated into films, Zipes argues that fairy tales were often used to relieve social conflict by describing past experiences to their audience. Whether it was to gain a sense of community in a tribe or to even display opposition against political figures, fairytales throughout history gave some sort of message to the intended audience and created a voice that was heard above all else when reading.

To writers like Perrault and the Brothers Grimm, this message was the sole purpose of writing these tales. Zipes believes Disney manipulated his audience and caught their attention through elaborate images, bright colors, and loud sounds without incorporating the true message of the story. The films were simplistic and included reoccurring archetypal characters and predictable story lines, which also left the audience without opportunity for reflection or critical analysis.

Zipes argues that with these elements, Disney was able to influence the audience to believe that he accurately depicted these fairytales, and intrigued the viewers with his trickery to watch more of his productions. In fact, his films were projected worldwide and became so popular that his film was remembered rather than the original literary tales. Aside from the literal vs. Zipes uses this example from one of the most popular works to explain the situation between the animation team, a group of individuals who strived for recognition beyond the tiny name on the credits, and Disney.

By this, Zipes pairs Disney to the prince charming role, leaving his animators as the seven dwarves. Not only does Zipes catch a parallel in the film, but he also criticizes the constant patriarchal idealism incorporated into the story line. References Zipes, Jack. Maria Tatar. New York: W.

Breaking The Disney Spell By Jack Zipes

Zipes contends that the magic of Disney lies in his ability to transfix audiences and divert their Utopian dream through false promises propagated through animated fairy tales. Storytellers initially shared fairy tales orally, which perpetuated a sense of community and created a telos , or a sense of mission. In order to be accepted into the cultivated literary circles of the French bourgeoisie of the late seventeenth century, fairy tales had to be transformed. Despite the literary fairy tales institutionalization, the oral tradition continued to feed writers with material and was now influenced by the literary tradition, such as in the case of the Bibliotheque Bleue, which contained numerous abbreviated and truncated versions of the literary tales. The literary tales were meant to be read in private; however, the book form enabled privatization and thus violated the communal aspects of the folk tale, much as the printing of the tales had already accomplished. The privatization of fairy tales furthered notions of elitism and separation.
