Hello, everybody!

It has been a while since a new commentary had been posted here. Well, that is because we now host them at our own website!
http://www.threecommentears.com/

But it just won't be audio commentaries for Disney films. Not only will we be doing audio commentaries for films through "Dreamers of Dreams," we will also have "Something to Think About," our more podcast-like segment of the site where we discuss a topic regarding the Disney culture. Finally, we have "A Matter of Life and Disney," a series of essays and videos where we discuss how Disney has greatly impacted our lives in significant ways.

To learn more about the site, check our the welcome article:
http://www.threecommentears.com/2014/07/welcome/

We are also on the following sites:

I should also add that for an archival look at the first season of The Three CommentEARS, be sure to check out the original thread, which contain links to our commentaries as hosted on our original hosting site:

viewtopic.php?f=1&t=30818

Looking forward to sharing more Disney knowledge, analysis, and memories with everyone!

Albert

Welcome to a brand new season of The Three CommentEARS! After a few months’ hiatus, we return to the airwaves with an examination of the 1959 animated classic Sleeping Beauty. As always, your CommentEARS for this journey into the Forbidden Mountain and beyond are Albert Gutierrez, Pedro Hernandez, and Kelvin Cedeño. With its divided reputation, Sleeping Beauty has continued to influence The Walt Disney Company in many ways, paving the way for the pastel-heavy art design of Pocahontas and leading to the revisionist “what if?” scenario presented in 2014′s live-action film Maleficent. As Sleeping Beauty has already received two official audio commentaries from Disney (in 2003 and 2008, respectively – both are highly recommended), this track focuses more on personal reflections of the film and character analysis. However, we still take a look at the production, notably its place within cinema history of 1959 as a whole, and its legacy beyond its original theatrical release.

For instructions on how to sync the audio with your copy of the film (download for a later listen), click on the link below:

http://www.threecommentears.com/2014/08 ... past-self/

In our very first article of our A Matter of Life and Disney series, titled Changing Times – A Letter For My Past Self, Albert Gutierrez uses the transformation of the Walt Disney Studios as chronicled by Randy Cartwright in Waking Sleeping Beauty as a metaphor for his own life journey through Disney coupled with the transformation he experienced across time

Now we ask you… What kind of personal transformation have you recently experienced, Disney or otherwise? Have you seen Waking Sleeping Beauty, this article’s point of inspiration? What are your thoughts on it?

Our “A Matter of Life and Disney” series continues with “A New Fantastic Point of View,” in which Pedro examines the literal and emotional impact of Aladdin’s “A Whole New World” love ballad, notably how it became an anthem for his personal journey through life and Disney.

Now we ask you… How has entries from the Disney Songbook affected your life? What songs do you turn to for inspiration? Why do they hold such an effect on listeners?

In our third article in our "A Matter of Life and Disney" series, Kelvin looks for his own Wonderland, and realizes that it and its denizens were closer than he ever imagined.

Now we ask you; How has joining the Disney fandom affected you personally? Which Disney film inspired you to read the original tales that inspired it?

I've just looked at this website for the first time, and I really rather like it, especially the "A Matter of Life and Disney" series. I'll be sure to listen to some of the commentaries imminently.

Many Disney fans dream of working in the Disney parks as a cast member. In the premiere episode of our "Something to Think About" podcast series, we talk about the expectations and realities that come with the role. Does the magic go away, or simply get replaced by something new and different?

And now we ask you, what expectations do you have regarding a role as Disney Cast Member? What would be your dream role and why?

This week, we present a multifaceted look at the making of the 1997 animated classic, Hercules. As always, your CommentEARs for this legendary journey are Albert Gutierrez, Pedro Hernandez, and Kelvin Cedeño. Hercules stands out among the Disney Renaissance in both style and substance, offering a diverse, carefree comedy that doesn’t mind straying from the source material. As such, it often received divided criticism and acclaim, making viewers question whether the story presented is meant to be true to myth or stand on its own. The CommentEARS look at the genesis of the film, its symbolic use of colors, and the traditional Hero’s Journey which Hercules undertakes. In addition, we provide discussion about the film’s intentional over-commercialization, relentless marketing, and its impact on viewers then and now. Whether one is a huge fan of the film or only holds a passing interest, this commentary drives to tell many sides of the story to better appreciate and understand the making of the film.

Thanks, DisneyFan09 and Dr Frankenollie! I feel bad for not contributing enough to this thread (or the previous one), but any feedback is much appreciated.

Also, we haven't set a schedule for our Dreamers of Dreams commentaries (though we have already chosen our first non-Disney film), but if anyone wishes to suggest any films, we'll be sure to consider them.

Albert

Fifty years ago, out of the sky she came. Mary Poppins has continued to enthrall and fascinate audiences for five decades, making us believe that spoonful of sugar still helps the medicine go down, that tea parties on the ceiling are perfectly acceptable ways to pass an afternoon, and that flying a kite can give you wings. To celebrate this landmark anniversary, let us revisit our December 2013 commentary for the film.

As usual, your commentators include Albert Gutierrez, Pedro Hernandez, and Kelvin Cedeño, with special guest commentator Aaron Wallace (author of The Thinking Fan’s Guide to Walt Disney World: Magic Kingdom) joining for this special occasion. If you’ll recall, this episode not only took a look at its production, but also made comparisons to both the original P.L. Travers books and stage musical, and looked into how it impacted our lives over the years. In addition, we examined some of the film’s spiritual themes, its high-ranking reputation within the Disney company, the various “Disney Achievements” represented within the film, several connections to 2013′s Saving Mr. Banks and Travers herself, and the film’s impact on all viewers since its release. Please be sure to enjoy our first “legacy” commentary in observance of one of the most enduring “legacy” films in the Disney canon.

For instructions to sync the commentary with the film and more, click the link above!

(NOTE: This commentary was already available in the original CommentEARS thread, we are resposting it in honor of the film's 50th anniversary)

What's the difference between the Lagacy commentaries and the regular ones? Do some films get both kinds of commentaries? Of course, I don't have time to listen to these, I figure some day I will get to hear select ones, but I'm curious. I listened to Cinderella's and loved it except Kelvin got it wrong that Charles Perrault made a mistake in writing that Cinderella had a glass slipper instead of a fur one. Perrault actually did mean a glass one.

Legacy commentaries are commentaries from Season One that we re-uploaded and posted on the new site. Our plan is that we might remaster them, change the quality and make them better than when posted originally, but since today was Mary Poppins's anniversary, and the track we did came out so well, we just uploaded it as is. But future Legacy commentaries may have some changes in sound quality and such.

We close out August with the first half of a pair of Jungle Stories. First, the Three CommentEARS tackle Walt’s final animated film, 1967′s The Jungle Book. As always, your CommentEARS for this journey into the jungle are Albert Gutierrez, Pedro Hernandez, and Kelvin Cedeño. For many Baby Boomers, The Jungle Book held a special significance, as the cast and crew of the film enabled a fitting culmination of all that Walt Disney and his studio had contributed to the animation field. Although Walt died during the film’s production, his style and approval is still apparent throughout the film, as the CommentEARS discuss. In addition, the CommentEARS take a look at the film’s decision to focus on a character-driven arc rather than follow the original Kipling stories. They also discuss the voice cast’s extensive work both before and after the film, some of the groundbreaking Xerography work that had been used previously in 1960′s short film “Goliath II,” and the film’s continuing legacy for both its own merits and as Walt’s final film.

Thanks again for another good commentary. To describe my relationship to "The Jungle Book"; It was one of my early Disney-favorites. I saw it twice theatrically and I loved it, mostly because of it's jungle/animal setting, sheer charm/fun and strong personalities. And I saw it a million of times when I got it on VHS at my birthday. Now as an adult, I still find it enjoyable, but not as much as I used to. I find it inferior to many other of the Walt movies, because of it's lackluster story and vague plot (sorry, "Jungle Book" fans). So while I have a nostalgia for "Jungle Book", I don't worship it as I used to.

And just another thing regarding the commentary for "Hercules"; I disagree that "Hercules" is more frenetic than "Aladdin". As the matter of fact, I find it more pensive than "Aladdin". "Hercules" is frenetic, indeed, but I think it has more pensive moments than "Aladdin" (Hercules getting scolded for destroying the agora, "Go the Distance"-sequence, Herc's encounter with Phil, Meg's reveal about her past, Herc and Meg's moment in the garden, Herc and Phil fighting, ect). "Aladdin" has some pensive moments indeed, but they are usually are interrupted by some comedic moments, more so than in "Hercules".

From the 1960s’ jazz-filled Indian jungle, we now trek deeply into the dark, African jungle as we continue our journey through Disney’s Jungle Stories with 1999′s animated classic, Tarzan. Your guides for this journey as always include Albert Gutierrez, Pedro Hernadez, and Kelvin Cedeño. Unlike most film and television adaptations of the Edgar Rice Burroughs’ Tarzan stories, Disney’s turn focuses more on the emotional journey all the characters take, as each struggles for acceptance, even amidst the danger, peril, and thrills for which the Tarzan stories are known. The CommentEARS discuss how Disney achieves such feats through the unique musical talents of Phil Collins, the implementation of the innovative Deep Canvas process, and key stories from the voice cast. In addition, the CommentEARS reflect on Tarzan’s deserving status as the closing film of the long-celebrated Disney Renaissance, as well as the film’s legacy within the Disney community since the film’s release.
