I don't care for Robin Hood too much, but I saw it at least 3 times, and the man did a good job voicing the character. Reincarnate in peace, Brian.

I know he was a very distinguished gentleman of the theater & I've no idea how he felt about it later in life but Robin Hood is, depending on my mood, arguably my favorite animated Disney movie. It ain't saying it's the BEST...but it's bizarre anachronistic choices of voice talent (British, American, redneck & gay) impossibly succeed in a gentle feel good movie that chooses to be charming instead of self-aware.

Thanks for a good thing Brian...

This movie was such an iconic part of my childhood. I know it gets a bad rap for re-using lots of shots and overall being really cheap compared to other Disney movies, but it will always hold a special place in my heart. Rest in peace Brian.

>We never rob. We simply borrow from those who can afford it
>Borrow? Boy, are we in debt

Looks like the old boy finally paid it off. Now it sure is going to feel different watching that final fiery castle scene where he gets shot at by arrows in the water.
>>
>>78966676
So people notice when they're browsing those popular tags. And so the post itself gets more attention.
>>
>>78977171
In the original planned ending, Robin actually gets hit by an arrow and is critically wounded. Maid Marian takes him to a healer, and Prince John shows up and is going to stab him in his sleep. Marian pleads with him to spare Robin but he won't listen, and then King Richard shows up and stops him.

I'm guessing there were two main reasons why they didn't go with this ending. First of all, it seems kind of contrived that King Richard would know exactly where Prince John was at that moment, and he'd happen upon him right as he was about to kill Robin. That ending might have been workable if they had changed it to Maid Marian resolving to fight off Prince John to protect Robin, however that still brings me to the second point.

Secondly, and probably more importantly, the climax of the film is already pretty dark and dramatic, and they likely realized early on that they needed to lighten the mood a bit rather than dragging on the gloom and uncertainty for another whole scene. They put an exclamation point on it with a "disney death" rather than letting the tension just slow to a simmer until Richard shows up to fix everything.
>>
It's kind of weird that Robin Hood's voice actor just passed away, because I just ordered the Blu-ray a few days ago.
>>
>>78965595
I'm not really surprised that Robin Hood was inspiration for Zootopia. They have a somewhat similar approach to anthropomorphism, and also Robin Hood was such an influential film on the genre.

I'm pretty sure that Robin Hood influenced Kung Fu Panda, also. I've even heard some people suggest that they take place in the same universe.

>>
>>78977761
Just curious: What makes Robin Hood's approach to anthropomorphism distinct? Is it the fact that the animals basically act like people with only minimal animal behavior (unlike, say, The Fox and the Hound or something), or do you mean it has more to do with the character designs & visual style?
>>
>>78980980
The character designs and visual style, largely. They struct a pretty good balance between keeping the animals animal-like and making them humanoid and relateable. They're not humans with animal heads, but they're also more anthropomorphic than many of the cartoons that came before it. And at the same time, it was not like Disney's Mickey Mouse cartoons, because they went with a more natural and realistic look for the characters than what you'd see in a typical animal cartoon, kind of tapping into the aesthetic sensibilities of The Jungle Book except anthropomorphic.

>Buying any blu-rays from Disney ever again after their history of cropping and using aggressive detail scrubbing DNR
Is it too much to ask for things to be remastered well, in their original aspect ratios, from one of the biggest and wealthiest studios that produced some of the greatest traditionally animated films and could clearly afford to do it properly? The answer is apparently yes.

On topic, RIPIP Brian.

Monica Evans (Maid Marian) is only 75 and she might be still around, even though Robin Hood and The Aristocats were her final two credited movie roles. I just can't tell if she went into seclusion in the 80s or what.

When you buy such sets, in MOST cases, the DVD contains the identical program to the Blu-Ray, instead of being a reprint of an earlier transfer.

The sad thing is that Robin Hood isn't even that bad looking compared to what they did to Sword and the Stone. They completely destroyed that film for the Blu-Ray release.

At least with Robin Hood you can still make out some of the detail even if it's a bit smudged over in Disney's worthless efforts to hide the fact that it's a xerox movie. With Sword in the Stone the whole movie is obscured by a thick layer of Vaseline.

I'm sick of movies getting cropped, though. Blu-Rays have enough space that they can have both versions if they're really some twat out there who can't stand black bars, but I don't understand what the appeal of cropping is. Disney paid someone to make it so that I will see less of the movie that I paid for and that's all it boils down to. Especially ironic considering that the whole point of switching to 16:9 was that TVs were getting bigger, and making them wider would allow for larger, fuller images on the screen. Cropping 4:3 into 16:9 is a disservice to both formats.

Crazy to think that despite the higher quality image we went backwards with Bluray. When you had VHS and DVD movies got a widescreen and fullscreen release letting people actually decide what they want but with a lot of Bluray movies you're just shit out of luck.

Things started out good with Disney. Snow White on Blu-Ray offered both versions, and the noise reduction they used was very restrained, and dust removal was done frame-by-frame. The golden era of Disney generally yielded some very nice looking Blu-Rays, especially Sleeping Beauty.

When we got to the blu-rays from the dark age though, that's where things really went to shit. All these decades later, and Disney still hasn't accepted that xerox movies have an inherently dirtier, rougher look than the golden age movies. Fans can actually appreciate the Xerox movies because we get to see the original pencil work that is normally traced over with ink by other artists, but Disney doesn't give a shit and thus they DNR the shit out of those movies hoping the casual observer won't notice that they look "different" from Disney's other films.
