PrueFever aka Jørgen with his idol, Prue Halliwell aka Shannen Doherty.
Life has never been easy for PrueFever aka Jørgen Jørgensen (J.J. for short). When his mom started drinking alcohol a few weeks after his birth, his father did the same thing a couple of years later, which led to Social Service removing him and his sisters from inicial and placed them in different Foster Homes in Denmark. Then in 1997 J.J. was diagnosed with Aspergers Syndrome, although on the mild end of the ASD spectrum. Then in 2007 his mother died and in 2008 his father was killed. And yet, when fanpop met up with him in Planet Hollywood in London, it was a fresh, smiling young man we met. Ordering his favorito! Burger from the menu, we sat down and had a good chat about Fanpop, disney and Life in General.

Fanpop: Hello Prue, o Jørgen as your real name is. First of all, thank tu for taking time to do this Interview with us.

Jørgen: Oh no, I'm the one who should be thanking tu for this interview! It's quite an hornor!

Snow White
The Encyclopedia of Walt Disney's Animated Characters: From Mickey ratón to Hercules by
John Grant

Character descripción of Snow White from "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" (1937)

Snow White in the disney version is, strangely, not in fact very beautiful - although extremely attractive. Presumably deliberately, disney opted for girl-next-door prettiness rather than out-and-out beauty. Moreover, Snow White appears to be extremely youthful, aged perhaps between 12 and 14 (although modelled por 18-year-old Marjorie Belcher), and still with a trace of early adolescent plumpness. However, framed por her dark, shortish hair, her face has an infinitely appealing innocent charm and sweetness.
Snow White's voice reinforces this impression of youth. This voice was supplied por Adriana Caselotti, the daughter of a Hollywood canto teacher. Interestingly, among the many hundreds of young women who were auditioned for the part was Donna Durbin; she was turned down on the grounds that her voice was too mature, too well honed. What is startling is that the Snow White we see and hear is in fact an older version of the original character...

Esmeralda, one of Disney's most sexiest heroines ever!
The Encyclopedia of Walt Disney's Animated Characters: From Mickey ratón to Hercules by
John Grant

Walt disney Character descripción of Esmeralda from "The Hunchback of Notre Dame" (1996)

If Quasimodo is Disney's ugliest hero, Esmeralda is indubitably the company's sexiest - apart from Jessica Rabbit. Esmeralda, the gupsy dancer who performs in the calle in order to earn coppers to feed herself and her pet goat Djali, has a huge mane of black hair, turquoise eyes that flash whenever her ire is roused, a risqué sense of humor, and an approach to life that is underlined por an attitude of steel. She is also clearly intelligent. It is little wonder that Quasimodo and Phoebus fall in amor with her, and that Frollo finds his lust inflamed por her.
It is not immediately obvious (except to those who have read the original novel) that she is going to be the movie's central female star: we see glimpses of her as part of the Parisian cityscape, but then there are other calle characters whom we see from time to time. It is only when Phoebus, returned from the wars to take up office under Frollo, first sets eyes on her that we begin...

The beautiful Pocahontas
The Encyclopedia of Walt Disney's Animated Characters: From Mickey ratón to Hercules by
John Grant

A recurrent characteristic of the disney animated features over the past few years - at least since 1989's The Little Mermaid - has been the presence of a strong female character in a central role. Belle, jazmín and Esmeralda are other examples. None of these, however, can compare with the figure of Pocahontas: She is the movie, to the extent that, when everything else might be forgotten, her image persists in the memory. The reasons for this phenomenon are multiple, involving not only her conceptualization and animación (Glen Keane was the supervising animator) but also her voicing (Irene Bedard for Pocahontas speaking and Judy Kuhn for Pocahontas singing), her dialogue, her way of moving, and perhaps above all, her hair, which moves in the wind in such a way as to express a freedom no longer available to us. She is not some chic beauty thrust at us as a politically correct image of the Native American; she is exotic and beautiful and as wild as any of the animales the settlers might have come across in the New World.

The beautiful Princess Jasmine
The Encyclopedia of Walt Disney's Animated Characters: From Mickey ratón to Hercules by
John Grant

Walt disney Character descripción of Princess jazmín from "Aladdin" (1992)

Mark Henn, who created the look of jazmín for the movie, had various inspirations. One was a theme-park guest at disney World in Florida, whose long thick mane of black hair sparked off an idea. The most important, however, was his sister Beth - although an actress called Robina Ritchie did live-action modeling to help the animation. Linda Larkin, who gave jazmín her speaking voice, and Lea Salonga, who sang for her, looks not in the slightest like the screen version of Jasmine.
Continuing their practice in several anterior movies, the disney creators made jazmín an independent-minded young woman; she is not going to be married off to any old lout, no matter how blue his blood, but is instead determined to marry for love. She is, moverover, impatient with her father's dictum that she should be confined within the palace (much of this movie's theme concerns confinement) and eventually escapes to discover what the outer world is like. There her naïveté...

Belle as she appears in the beginning of the movie.
The Encyclopedia of Walt Disney's Animated Characters: From Mickey ratón to Hercules by
John Grant

Character descripción of Belle from "Beauty and the Beast" (1991)

It was decided early that the movie's heroine should display a lot más spirit than the somewhat passive virtue of the character in the original fairy tale. The liveaction performance for the animators' reference was supplied por Sherri Stoner, the actress who had not long before served the same funtion so very excellently for The Little Mermaid's Ariel, another feisty female part. Belle's part was spoken and sung por Paige O'Hara, a talented and strong actress who could be relied upon to give the role both depth and variety: she was able to provide the right lightness of touch for the comic scenes and the dramatic strenth required for the serious ones. Belle was also dado a very prominent role in terms of appearance time: she is on screen for just under half an hour, which is twice as long as any of the other characters. Her animators, under the supervision of the young Jasmes Baxter (who used an early sketch por xstoryman Roger Allers as a main reference), let...

The hero of the movie, Aladdin.
The Encyclopedia of Walt Disney's Animated Characters: From Mickey ratón to Hercules by
John Grant

Walt disney Character descripción of Prince aladdín from "Aladdin" (1992)

As is very often the case in the disney animated features, the story of aladdín as a character is that of growth from selfunderestimation to the realization that the individual has worth and can achieve a particular aim, which is generally living happily ever after with the mate of his choice. The different here is that aladdín tries to cheat - he makes the Genie turn him into a prince so that he can woo Jasmine, and it is a time before the Genie gets it through to him that he should simply be himself and take his chances. We know from the first that aladdín is going to succeed - we'd hardly have gone to the movie otherwise - but the point is firmly made in the early stages when the baggy-panted calle rata Aladdin, accompanied por his tiny pet monkey Abu, steals a loaf of pan de molde, pan (a crime) but then gives it to a couple of calle waifs who are so desperately hungry that they are seaching through an anachronistic garbage can for food. The waifs are then insulted by...

The evil Fairy, Maleficent.
The Encyclopedia of Walt Disney's Animated Characters: From Mickey ratón to Hercules by
John Grant

Walt disney Character descripción of Maleficent from "Sleeping Beauty" (1959)

Of all the characters in Sleeping Beauty, the one that everyone remembers, even decades later, is the wicked fairy Maleficent. She is one of the finest creations ever to come out of the disney studio - and the brilliant transformation of her into the Dragon to fight Phillip merely adds to the strength of the characterization. Even her name - a wonderful combination of "malice" and "malevolent" - testifies to her pure evil. People who thought that the wicked queen in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs might frighten their children were presumably petrified themselves when they took their grandchildren to see Maleficent. To an extent this is achieved because she is a much más rounded character than her earlier counterpart - she has something of the dashing style of Cruella De Vil in One Hundred and One Dalmatians - which is hardly surprising, because Marc Davis did much of the work on both of them. In his interview with A. Eisen,...

Ariel, the little mermaid
The Encyclopedia of Walt Disney's Animated Characters: From Mickey ratón to Hercules by
John Grant

Character descripción of Princess Ariel from "The Little Mermaid" (1989)

Tawny-haired Ariel was one of the most immediately popular animated heroines to emerge from the disney stable for a very long time - indeed, it's hard to remember any at all that might match her in this respect. It is easy enough to explain away this phenomenal success in terms of sexual allure, of which she has plenty, yet that doesn't really get to the corazón of the matter, for in many ways she is also a very childlike character.
Ariel is a girl who is in the process of becoming a sexually attractive woman; thus our responses to her, while linked to her sexuality, are nostalgic rather than prurient. This is particularly evident in the scenes when Ariel has just come ashore in human form and has discovered that she's got legs. Despite the obvious sexual overtones in the fact that she is now biifurcate, where she really appeals to us is in her wonder at finding these marvellous new appendages joined onto her. We're already smiling in resonance with her...

Character descripción of Tarzan from "The Black Cauldron" (1985)

Taran, the Assistant Pig-Keeper who wants to make good por becoming a great warrior, is a member of that great fraternity of disney central protagonists who are rather indefinitely characterized. To say that they are nonentities - as some critics have done - is to be a little harsh, because they are not; but they are definitely, and quite deliberately, painted in pastel colours so that the más ostentatiously bizarre characters around them may shine. The "new breed" of disney animators saw fit to make Taran an amalgam between the (approximate) appearance of Wart and the personality of Mowgli. This was probably a wise decision, since, The Black Cauldron is, debatably, overloaded with strong principal characters, and so a powerfully portrayed Taran would simply have eclipsed such delightful creations as Fflewddur Fflam, Gurgi and Doli.

One of Walt Disney's most beloved characters, Bambi.
The Encyclopedia of Walt Disney's Animated Characters: From Mickey ratón to Hercules by
John Grant

Bambi is not a tightly plotted movie in the way that Dumbo, for example, is: it depends much más for its effect on the superb animación and the exquisitely executed backdrop of the forest. As with the story, most of the characterization is not profound - one does not find oneself rooting for Bambi in the same way that one does for, say, Dumbo (again) o Snow White. The only really strong characterizations are those of Friend Owl and Thumper. But this lack of depth in the characterization is not important; indeed, it would probably have been a mistake, for the point of the movie is that these are real animales - any animales - living in a real forest.
The character of Bambi himself fits in with this scheme. In his early youth he has a full measure of all the charm that a young mammal can display, with his spindly legs and his wide-eyed innocence. His voice, supplied por Bobby Stewart, is childishly cute; as he grows older his voice becomes progressively más mature, being supplied in these later stages of the movie por Donnie...

Character descripción of Ursula from "The Little Mermaid" (1989)

The Emmy-winning Pat Carroll, who voiced the part of the sea-witch (spelt with a b), is a very experienced actress on both stage and screen. Carroll envisioned the role as "part Shakespearean actress, with all the flair, flamboyance and theatricality, and part used-car salesman with a touch of con artist". She deliberately deepend her own voice, especially for the canto (she's naturally a contralto); in an interview with Lou Cedrone she added: "I'm not really a singer, and I would rather have talked-sang the role, but they wanted me to sing it, so I did... The producers sharpened and heightened all of it, particularly the singing." The first stanza o so of "Poor Unfortunate Souls", before she hits her triumphant stride, shows the necessity of this.
Ursula is a marvellous villainess, one of the disney classics of her malicious genre. She has the gross oleaginous unsubtlety of The Great ratón Detective's villain Ratigan but substantially more...

Sleeping Beauty - The beautiful Princess Aurora
The Encyclopedia of Walt Disney's Animated Characters: From Mickey ratón to Hercules by
John Grant

Although she is the central character of the movie, the part of Princess Aurora/Briar Rose is in fact a very small one - smaller, for example, than that of Prince Phillip (in marked contrast with Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs whose Prince hardly made an appearance, but whose heroine occupied a fair deal of screen-time). In fact, her functions in the movie are three: (a) to be cursed; (b) to meet and fall in amor with Phillip; and (c) to prick her finger and fall into a death-like sleep. Over (a) and (c) she has no control whatsoever, and over (b) her control is as limited as that of anyone falling in love. Yet these three elements constitute the vital catalyst without which none of the rest of the action in the movie could occur.
Largely animated por Marc Davis, the doyen of disney animators of women (he was responsible also for cenicienta and Cruella De Vil), Aurora is physically and temperamentally much más mature than Snow White; she is less cute, much más pretty. However, like Snow White she has a special affinity with the...

Walt disney Character descripción of cenicienta from "Cinderella" (1950)

The character of cenicienta was posed in live action por Helene Stanley who, to jugde por stills of her performance, was even más beautiful than the screen cenicienta - although she was brunette rather than blonde. In a 1982 interview with Kur Wiley, Marc Davis, largely responsible for animating Cinderella, compared the character with another of his "creations", Cruella De Vil:

"I think that cenicienta would have to be the más difficult because she has to be the substance that carries the story all the way through. She has to be believable, she has to be real, and she has to be [someone] that tu can feel sympathy for. Storytelling characters like these are rather thankless characters to do because... they don't get laughs! When tu do something in animación and the whole audience laughs at one time at something you've done, it is a tremendous thrill."

The wonderful character Sebastian
The Encyclopedia of Walt Disney's Animated Characters: From Mickey ratón to Hercules by
John Grant

With the exeption of Ariel - and possibly not even with that exception - the estrella of the whole mostrar is Sebastian, o (to be fittingly pedantic) Horatio Thelonious Ignacious Crustaceous Sebastian, the little cangrejo who is Triton's Court Composer and then Ariel's reluctantly conscripted Jiminy Cricket. The animación of Sebastian is a delight, and that surrounding him during the performace of his two brilliant songs - the calypso/reggae "Under the Sea" and the smoothly crooned "Kiss the Girl" - is devastatingly good, but the foundation of the character and the reason for its overwhelming succes in the film is undoubtedly the outstanding vocal performance turned in por the actor Samuel E. Wright. Originally it had been planned that Sebastian be English, but the movie's songwriters, Howard Ashman and Alan Menken, were looking for something a bit más upbeat, and foot-tapping from the música and so it was decided to give Sebastian's two numbers West Indian rhythms; from there to the adoption of a West Indian Sebastian was of course a very short step.

Character descripción of The Blue Fairy from "Pinocchio" (1940)

The Force of good might seem to be underrepresented in the movie when compared with the force of evil, incarnate in John Worthington Foulfellow, The Coachman, Stromboli, Lampwick... On the side of good are only Gepetto (a fairly passive ally), Jiminy Cricket, the Blue Fairy and eventually towards the end, the late-discovered integrity of Pinocchio himself. Yet good, of course, eventually triumphs (although, as noted, it does not destroy the evil).
The Blue Fairy is a blonde of pristine beauty; she is so realistically depicted that it seems almost as if one were watching some kind of special-effects treatment of a live actress rather than an animation. Her voice enhances her purity of image: it was supplied por Evelyn Venable, a movie actress from Cincinnati, and was recorded in a unusual way. She spoke each of her lines several times over, using different inflections, and then the soundmen dubbed in the version they thought worked most effectively, in the context...

Prince Phillip and his horse Samson

Character descripción of Prince Phillip and Samson from "Sleeping Beauty" (1959)

The handsome Prince in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs was nothing más than a cipher - it was not thought necessary even to name him. Prince Charming in cenicienta was más than just a plot device, but nevertheless still had only a minor part. For the third in their trio of great fairy stories, however, disney gave the handsome Prince a far meatier role, and consequently his character had to be portrayed in más detail.
Phillip is gentle, good-natured, well spoken, courteous, romantic and above all courageous - just as tu would expect him to be - but what is interesting is that these characteristics are all well blended together to create a convincing, fully rounded personality. When he fights his way through the forest of thorns o battles the Dragon, this behaviour is perfectly consonant with the gentleness he displayed towards Aurora as well as with his determination of mind when he tells his father that he is going to marry...

Walt disney Character descripción of Jafar from "Aladdin" (1993)

The evil vizier is represented as a caricature villain - he has a long thin face, a curly black wisp of beard, two great spikes of something sticking out from shoulders of his customary garb, an unpleasant habit of hypnotizing people, a sinister voice, and very much more. However, the exaggeration works: the characterization is such that we early become fully aware of his evil, and we cheer when he gets his deserved comeuppance. Much of this is, of course, a result of his deeds: we discover that he abuses power, both political and financial. He shows no compunction at all, having discovered the Cave of Wonders and cognizant that the Magic Lamp is contained within, in sacrificing the life of the criminal Gazeem in an ill-fated attempt to steal the Lamp. He lies cruelly to jazmín in telling her that the calle rata (Aladdin) who saved her from having her hand chopped off has been beheaded for the crime of kidnapping her (an obvious miscarriage of justice); the...

Prince Eric
The Encyclopedia of Walt Disney's Animated Characters: From Mickey ratón to Hercules by
John Grant

It is a recurring theme of this book that Disney's glamorous princes tend on the whole to be cyphers, and Eric (voiced por Christopher Daniel Barnes, then the US national teenage spokesperson for the enviromental organization Greenpeace) is no exeption. The habit of using purely symbolic characters in the princely role is not normally a particularly noticeable one in the other features; it is only later that we realize that, whereas we have the feeling we've met the other principal characters, the one in the role of the prince has never been más than a sort of blur to us. In the case of The Little Mermaid, however, probably because Ariel was so much designed to be the movie's dominant character, the fact that Eric dosen't have much going for him, except his rock-jawed good looks, becomes particuarly obvious. Oddly, though, a better excuse can be made for The Little Mermaid requiring a cypherlike prince than for most of the other disney features: just as Triton is (in part) a symbol of paternal authority and possessiveness and...

Character descripción of Simba from "The Lion King" (1994)

The story of Simba is the story of the movie: Born to kingship, he is tricked into abandoning it and then deliberately turns his back on it until persuaded por others to assume his responsibilities. Stripped down like that, the story seems a very simple one, but that is not the real story. The real story is of the transformation of Simba's character through several pronouncedly different stages.
As a baby and then a cub he is what Bill Cotter has described as "warm and fuzzy" - what used to be a typical disney animal, in fact. As a cub he is as cocksure as the average preteen, and as gullible. It could not be made más patent that "Uncle Scar" is a stinker from root to branch, yet the young Simba swallows everything he says. The characterization is such as to evoke great sympathy - we have all been through that stage ourselves.

Walt disney Character descripción of Cruella De Vil from "One Hundred and One Dalmatians" (1961)

What can tu say about Cruella De Vil, probably the finest disney villain of them all? Well, over the years, people have dicho quite a lot about her, most notably Marc Davis, whose screen creation she was. The reviewers and the public agreed, for once, on a disney character. As one critic put it:

"The real triumph of the film is Cruella De Vil. She is the most sophisticated of the disney bad guys."

She is also one of the most evil, especially since, unlike The Evil queen in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and Maleficent in Sleeping Beauty, she is very much a monster of today, unendowed with magical powers and all the other trappings of that golden past which never in fact existed. She was born from the imaginations of not only Marc Davis but also, of curse, Dodie Smith - a fact that Disney-buffs are prone to forget, although Davis himself did not:

Pocahontas' best friend, Nakoma.
The Encyclopedia of Walt Disney's Animated Characters: From Mickey ratón to Hercules by
John Grant

Pocahontas's best friend, Nakoma is something of a character in buscar of a personality; in their pairing, Pocahontas is certainly the dominant one and certainly the brighter. Nakoma represents, in a subtler way than Kocoum, the reluctance of most of the Native Americans to embrace change, and thus contrasts completely with Pocahontas, who is a wild, free spirit enthusiastic to find adventure in each new moment. Their physical appearances reflect this: Pocahontas has a genuine Native American face and untamed hair that is almost a character in itself; Nakoma, por contrast, has an almost Asiatic face that is surrounded por neatly trimmed hair. Only once in the movie does she really let herself go - when she and Pocahontas indulge in a splashing match in the river.
Otherwise Nakoma thinks and does what is right - at least in her view, which may not be entierly consistent. She covers for Pocahontas once when the latter sneaks off for a rendezvous with Smith but is not prepared to do so a segundo time; this failure, of course, causes great tragedy,...

Tough, crass and jaded, Ursula is trying to find a way to get back from King Triton the power that once was hers.
While the animación department was busily trying to complete Oliver & Company por the imminent deadline, Ron Clements and John Musker, the two directors of The Great ratón Detective were working on an adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen's beloved story "The Little Mermaid." There had been astounding growth in every branch of the department from computer-generated imágenes to the finest character animation. There was also a villain in this new picture that would take her place alongside the greatest villains the studio had ever created. In the encuestas that showed Cruella De Vil as the most popular villainess of all our pictures, Ursula came in a close second.
Ursula had an unusual visual advantage over the most other villains; she was an octopus. A creature of the sea, swimming, floating, moving in a sensuous fashion, ideal for an ominous, hypnotic type of schemer. When supervising animator Ruben Aquino started work on this character, he found that the extensive story sketches concentrated más on facial expressions than actions. Ruben said, "Actually it was Roy [Disney] who pushed for us to get más of that octopus feeling."

Character descripción of Flotsam and Jetsam from "The Little Mermaid" (1989)

Ursula's two hench-eels are certainly villainous-looking creatures: seen head-on they resemble not so much eels as gnarled old alligators, with their skewed eyes, crumpled-looking jaws and haphazard teeth. Their eyes glow luminously in the dark - indeed, they do más than that, for Ursula, gazing into a large air bubble that looks astonishingly like a crystal ball, is able to look through those eyes in order to spy on distant events. (This business of scrying - farseeing - has become very popular in reciente disney animated features: it plays an important part in the plot of Beauty and the Beast as well)
The two eels (indistinguishable except for their eye colors) play a significant part in one of the movie's most effective minor pieces of animation. As Ursula is building up in the first few lines of her song "Poor Unfortunate Souls" they swim sinuously around her, reflecting the curves of her ample body, seeming to trail like the long scarves...
