His long time friend Howard Ashman was the Lyricist to most of the work Alan has done, He thinks his best work is at The Hunchback of Notre Dame and that he topped himself in that movie, he holds the record of the most Academy Awarded man alive with 8 Oscars with another 11 nominations.
i can actually take any line of the script as a deep quote.
”I’ll need those witless peasants to dig up my gold" well maybe not EVERY line, but still.
What could possibly be different about this one ?
The last kiss … the most powerful.
And i’m conviced that Pocahontas is one of the sexiest, most beautiful, most gorgeous animated ladies ever made.
This isn’t the first time i see this movie, but every time i watch it i’m more and more convinced of its greatness.
The animation is painfully beautiful, i had goosebumps like 7983465 times
It definitely grew up in my fave Disney movies list.
