Hello everyone. I have been putting this off for far too long, I can be stupid when it comes to stuff like that, I should have made this thread a long time cách đây so the new Lọ lem Diamond Edition release could fix these problems hoặc actually restore the entire film over again the right way, but here it is, the hard proof that for the 2005 Platinum Edition release of Lọ lem they restored the film wrong, and even may have re-painted hoặc changed things in it on purpose.
Now, even though Lọ lem was released most recently on trang chủ video in 2012, they used the same restoration from 2005 for that release. Hopefully, this information getting known to the public will get a good, accurate restoration done for the tiếp theo trang chủ video release.
IN ALL OF THESE EXAMPLES, THE FIRST PICTURE IS FROM BEFORE
THE 2005 RESTORATION, THE một giây PICTURE IS FROM
THE 2005 RESTORATION. LIKE BEFORE AND AFTER.
The first thing is an example of where the artists, in trying to make everything look like clean and perfect solid color, (and perhaps also to match the rest of the times that color was in the film, depending on the lighting) have accidentally colored a part wrong. It is the first proof that Disney doesn't merely/actually restore their animated films, they also paint/re-color parts of them in trying to make them look
like they're perfectly, pristinely restored.
So here we have Lọ lem before the 2005 restoration, and then Lọ lem from the 2005 restoration. In these images, look at Cinderella's brown hàng đầu, đầu trang and skirt: link link
Did bạn notice that in the 2005 restoration they accidentally made Cinderella's váy the same color as her top? It's the first evidence they don't restore things in a way that naturally returns things back to their original form. They do other things which just try to make it look like the original, except even snazzier for a new modern generation.
The tiếp theo one is of the stepmother, Lady Tremaine. In these pictures, take a look at Lady Tremaine's khăn choàng cổ, khăn choàng, shawl and the light parts of her hair: link link
Notice that in the 2005 restoration the blue-purple color of her khăn choàng cổ, khăn choàng, shawl runs into her hair? It looks to me like the lighter parts of the stepmother's hair were originally the same grayish silver color of her shawl, hoặc very close to it. So it looks like evidence that they are changing the màu sắc of the film from not what they are really supposed to be, because maybe her khăn choàng cổ, khăn choàng, shawl and hair were both supposed to be the same gray color but the heads at Disney wanted them to make the khăn choàng cổ, khăn choàng, shawl bluer, much like they made Cinderella's silver dress bluer, hm, right?
Speaking of, here's an example of this re-coloring that seems to prove thêm than ever that they paint over these films instead of just actually restore them. In the first image, before the 2005 restoration, Lọ lem is in a very silver áo choàng with a bustle (the puffy material at her hips) that is a lighter silver while her sleeves and gloves are thêm white. In the một giây image, from the 2005 restoration, not only is her dress bluer (which I've kept wondering if it's to match the Disney Princess marketed blue dress that they think looks better...), but it's quite obvious they didn't restore it properly, but rather, painted over it, because the bustle is now the same shade and color as her sleeves and gloves. In fact, when taking the image into MS Paint, for each bustle I just clicked once on an area with the paint can tool using red paint, and it filled in a big solid color không gian from her bustle to her gloves, even covering where the inked outline should at least be to seperate the bustle and gloves from each other! In fact you'll notice many
of the outlines and details, like those on her dress, are gone, probably painted over as well. The 2005 restoration picture was taken exactly as is from link
, bạn can take the hình ảnh from there and try it yourself if bạn want. Anyway here's the pictures: link link
The tiếp theo example is one of the Fairy Godmother's appearence, which looks like to be an example of a causality of the restoration's efforts to remove dirt and grain, which I've heard one way of doing so is cutting out the phim hoạt hình and "dustbusting" the frame and then putting back in the animation. I don't know what went on, maybe they didn't bother to carefully cut out all the animation, hoặc maybe in removing grain and dirt they removed the tiniest details like the stars of Disney dust, but...
In the first picture, notice the stars of fairy dust on the Fairy Godmother's coat. In the một giây picture, the one from the 2005 restoration, the stars are gone. And yes, I swear these are the very same frames: link link
So Disney has removed actual phim hoạt hình in their restoring. It's very bad, very careless, and not okay at all.
Now here are pictures hiển thị that in some scenes, the Fairy Godmother's lighter blue hàng đầu, đầu trang (top picture) was accidentally changed to the same blue as the rest of her dress (bottom picture): link
Finally, the biggest tragedy to me, of course. The debauchery of Walt Disney's, and my own, yêu thích piece of Disney animation, the transformation of Cinderella's gown. In these sets of pictures, all bạn have to do is look closely at the Disney dust, the magic fairy dust around her, most especially looking at the dust around her arms and head: link link
So did bạn notice that in the một giây picture of each set, the ones from the 2005 restoration, that they have diminished and even possibly somewhat removed some of the magical special effects animation? It even looks like the magic dust above her arms and head has mostly dissappeared. And this was Walt Disney's yêu thích animation.
Here are two hình ảnh to take an even closer look at what I think was the worse restored frame of the transformation. The hàng đầu, đầu trang picture is before the restoration, the bottom picture is after. It's like none of the magic dust is in the after picture! link
I also have a full HD (apparently, from Disney Screenaps again), but cropped picture of Lọ lem in mid-transformation to hiển thị bạn all how it looks close up. On the entire thing it looks like not all the detail of the image is there, but look especially at Cinderella's hands and thumb, especially her right hand and thumb (her
right, not you're right!). Doesn't it look like they cropped off some of the detail, for whatever reason, in their "restoring"? link
So there it is. I hope I have properly shown and explained to everyone how Disney did indeed restore Lọ lem for 2005 in not just a wrong way, but a terrible, careless, disrespectful way.
I ask bạn to please, if bạn can, spread the word. Linking to this thread would be great, but bạn can copy my pictures and hiển thị them on other sites hoặc các diễn đàn too (I'd rather bạn linked to this bài viết with my full amount of pictures and explanations though). I'd like to hiển thị Disney, too, but I don't know how.
Thanks for taking the time to read this and for any help hoặc comments.
