The Funny Messengers to Geny

Tu la li te Amo, banana”- (we love, banana)

Yes, they love bananas; so much that they look like one.

You guessed it right, folks, it’s the minions! They first made their on-screen appearance in 2010. The directors Pierre Coffin and Chris Renaud have not only introduced these cuddly creatures to the world, but they have also done a commendable job with the script. 

It’s compact, entertaining, and crisp at the same time. What’s more interesting is that your favorite minions have a language that is unique to them. In providing the voice to the Minions, Coffin uses words from languages including French, English, Spanish, and Italian.

Now they have a movie of their own! The Minions franchise is growing fast and will probably become one of the big guns in the years to come. Isn’t that enough to get you gobsmacked?

On a different shade, there is the latest animated offering from Pixar titled Inside Out. While the minions are a goofy bunch, you might find yourself falling prey to some subtle messaging of the motto “work is worship” in Inside Out

Pixar’s Theory of Labor!

Pixar’s way of conceptualizing a protagonist is assigning them a job and creating mechanisms in the plot, ensuring the successful completion of that job. This be-amazing-at-whatever-you-do approach is the trademark of Pixar Studios.

Thus, we can say that animated films may be made for the entertainment of young people, but it is not just about fun and humor. A lot of animated feature films and series have subtle messages on different virtues. They also investigate and present social dysfunctions, not directly but more in a figurative sense.

Films like CARS, TOY STORY series, and BIG HERO 6 portray the importance of hard work, ethics, diligence, and teamwork. As we lay eyes on Woody and Buzz in Toy Story, they compete for the same job.

Similarly, in Monsters Inc., Sully and Mike try to be efficient employees as collectors of children’s screams. In Inside Out, Joy can only accept Sadness once she comprehends what she does. In Big Hero 6, Hero Hamada becomes systematic and works hard to fulfill what his brother could not.

There is always the zeal to succeed that helps our heroes win the day, and they leave us with a lesson that good always triumphs over evil. These films also emphasize the bond of friendship. Friends are the silver linings to the darkest clouds – they hold our hands tight when we need them the most.

BRAVE, FINDING NEMO, LION KINGMADAGASCAR, and WALL-E leave us spellbound as they project family problems, politics, and love all very subtly. No one leaves the theater dissatisfied, they have had their share of entertainment and the message passed on will make food for their thought.

KUNG FU PANDA is another such enterprise that may look like just an action-comedy. Still, in between the fights and Po’s increasingly idiotic behavior, he works hard to fulfill his destiny. We won’t think of the virtues that these films so subtly talk about, individually, while at the theater, but the story creates an impression, so does the values, especially on young minds.
