  • Roland Barthes views a myth as a chain of connotative concepts that are mutually connected. For him, a myth appears through a chain connotation that is mutually related, due to the first-stage signification system. In other words, the connotation of a particular scene is already inherent in a culture in the form of social convention or social values before it is made. In the case of Disney animation, as mentioned Barthes, it has also two layers of denotation and connotation for signification. However, Disney animation shows the tendency that seek the denotative representation and the direct communication, based on the typified character, to the representation and delivery of the myth that is inherent. Therefore, the tendency of denotative signification is seen Disney animation can be said as a branch of research methodology for the approach to the aesthetics of Disney animation.

  • The Disney Studios have been aiming at the animation storytelling of the signification system that the contemporary audience can universally accept. And it can be said that such storytelling is aesthetic expression based on the contemporary mainstream dominant mythology. Seen from this perspective, the changes of the masculinity of male characters that are represented in the Disney feature animation Frozen are not just a simple aesthetic phenomenon but a strategy of animation storytelling that reflects the contemporary cultural and social trend. The gender identity of the male characters of Frozen is completely freed from the existing stereotypes about Disney feature animations, and it positively presents the changes of the gender roles that reflect the changes in social value and the needs of the times.

  • 2016년 개봉한 <말레피센트>는 디즈니 애니메이션 영화 <잠자는 숲속의 공주>를 원작으로 한 판타지 영화이다. 원작 <잠자는 숲속의 공주> 이야기를 바탕으로, 기존의 전통적인 공주와 왕자의 사랑이야기를 벗어나지 않으면서, 마녀가 진정한 사랑을 깨닫는 이야기로 각본되었다. 이러한 각본의 특징은 최근 반복적인 이야기 구조에서 벗어나 시청자와 공감대를 형성하려는 스토리로써 크게 성공하고 있다. 때문에 디즈니 애니메이션의 캐릭터 변화에 대한 연구를 통해 최근 여성 가치관의 변화에 관한 연구가 필요하다. 이를 위해 본 연구에서 디즈니 애니메이션의 대표작품을 선정하고 주요 여성 캐릭터를 대상으로 외모측면, 권력 및 계급 측면, 젠더 측면 등의 캐릭터의 대비를 진행하였다. 연구결과 전통적인 여성 캐릭터 이미지와 의미는 능동적이고 주체적으로 변화되고 있는 것으로 확인되었고, 현 시대가 공감하는 여성의 가치를 중심으로 스토리를 더욱 현실감 있게 표현하여 영화를 성공으로 이끌 수 있었음을 알 수 있었다.

  • In the society where contradiction of modernism in 20th century was vividly exposed and paradigm was being changed from text culture into visual culture according to the development of technology, Benjamin tried to practically suggest solutions for socio-historical problems he was facing. In contrast with Adorno who criticized cultural industry, Benjamin found out the possibility to overturn existing value order and innovate reality in mass art media having emerged according to the development of new technology. And such Utopian possibility appears in his thought on the early Disney animation even if it is fragmentary. This thesis reviews how Utopian possibility was realized in the early Disney animation, which had been thought by Benjamin.

  • The purpose of this paper is to explore the hegemonic masculinity in Disney animated feature films in terms of Antonio Gramsci's hegemony and R. W. Connell's hegemonic masculinity. According to Gramsci, hegemony refers to the predominance of a dominant group over other groups. By the same token, Connell uses the term hegemony as the configuration of gender practice which embodies the domination of men and the subordination of women. He describes four masculinities to explore male hierarchy in male groups: hegemonic masculinity, subordinated masculinity, complicit masculinity, and marginalized masculinity. Through Connell's terms, this study investigates masculinities in Disney films, especially Beauty and the Beast (1991) in relation to hegemonic masculinity. As a result, Disney describes repeatedly hegemonic masculinity as hard body defined by Susan Jeffords and supports tacitly the domination of a specific male group.

  • For a long time, Disney has made animations including world views such as family-focused, conservative ideology, happy ending, etc. for families. Periodical situation and spectators' demands have been changed little by little, but Disney is still a company who is the most successful both nominally and virtually in animation industry. For the secrets of their success, there is fantasy world of fabricated animation, thoroughly organized story and image. When spectators watch animations, their sufficient immersion in the fantasy is to let them forget realities. In the introduction of Disney animations, spectators turn off the switch of realities and turn on the switch of fantasy world through the procedure to recognize and confirm virtual world sufficiently. In the switch of the introduction used frequently by Disney, there are four methods. First is to start while opening the cover of storybook. Second is to start while storyteller gives a talk directly. Third is to start with live action film and continue to animation. Fourth is musical method. Those four switches play a role of the gate which distinguishes spectators' realities from Disney's fantasy clearly. The process makes an opportunity to set spectators who feel uneasy due to the vague boundary between realities and fantasy at ease and let them immerse in animation sufficiently with mind at ease.
