Disney film plot summeries[edit]

Thank you for working on the plot summeries. I am going to look through the history of Beauty and the Beast: The Enchanted Christmas and will try to find a shorter version of the plot (and one without the uncited stuff in it too). Feel free to cheak out my contribs to other Disney pages and edit them to! Also, the tone in Barney's Great Adventure may be off, so feel free to fix the tone. Thanks!

Oh, thank you! :) What I mostly did was just tagging overlong summaries, although I actually edited a few as well.LaukkuTheGreit (talk) 15:35, 5 September 2009 (UTC)

Can you edit ones such as Oliver & Company and Home on the Range (film)? OK, I don't really like Home on the Range, but I had saw it and I couldn't agree with you more when you said it was ridiculous how long it was, seeing as it's so simple (the plot). Also, the ending isn't finnished and I think it has plenty of typos.

Oliver however is awesome, and the lede sentence "and again on March 7, 2009" is incorrect, as it was listing the re-releases in theatres and not on home video, plus the release was Febuary 7. Also, I don't think that saying Oliver is cute is NPOV. In fact, I'd recommend just removing the character section altogether.

Lighteningluster (talk) 17:17, 5 September 2009 (UTC)

No, I don't think I will spend much time rewriting dozens of plot summaries, although I may look at those you mentioned. The reason why the Home on the Range synopsis was so ridiculous was that there was a tag asking to EXPAND it.LaukkuTheGreit (talk) 17:41, 5 September 2009 (UTC)
Yes, I saw that, however, the reason the expand tag was added was because back in March, the part about the plot in the lede was actually originally the entire plot section of the article until someone added that to the lede and asked for the section to be expanded. Then the section was written as it is now in June, with the user acidently messing up the image. So the image was fixed but not the plot tag. Also I think they might have asked to expand it because it doesn't have the full ending. I'd like though to have the Cinderella III plot I posted here done to Cinderella III: A Twist in Time, as I still can't edit a semi-protected page. Otherwise, I'd just fix all of these plots.

Ah, so you're not an autoconfirmed user? Your request makes much more sense now. LaukkuTheGreit (talk) 19:09, 5 September 2009 (UTC)
Nope. I tried contacting Killiondude to unprotect some of the pages but he must be offline. So I must wait. I will be autocomfirmed though, on Monday (September 7). Lighteningluster (talk) 19:39, 5 September 2009 (UTC)
I'm so glad you did Oliver & Company because that one is one of my favorites. Now, I found this at [1] for Robin Hood (1973 film):

The story begins as Robin Hood and Little John run from the Sheriff of Nottingham, who has ambushed them with a team of archers. After narrowly escaping, Robin Hood and Little John happen upon the royal entourage which is taking Prince John and his counselor, Sir Hiss, to Nottingham in order to tax the people there. Disguised as female fortune-tellers, Robin and Little John effectively steal all the gold they can carry and run off into the forest, leaving Prince John sucking his thumb in humiliation. In Nottingham, Robin uses Friar Tuck to smuggle the stolen gold back to the peasants. Later Robin sees Maid Marian, she and Robin had once been sweethearts as children, but were forced to part ways when she moved to London. But she is mistaken: Robin can't stop thinking about her. But since Robin is an outlaw he and Marian wait for marriage. Seething with rage, that Robin is winning, John triples the taxes, making the bleak situation in Nottingham even worse. One night, Robin Hood, disguised again as the beggar, learns that Friar Tuck is in jail and will rescue him, save Nottingham once and for all and give Prince John the justice that has been coming to him for a long time.

I'm sure it needs some expanding, but I'm sure it's a shortened version of Wikipedia's own summery (which is probably just the first half so that they won't spoil it for others). I like Robin Hood, Beauty and the Beast, and Pinocchio too just like Oliver & Company. Lighteningluster (talk) 20:14, 5 September 2009 (UTC)

Citizen Kane[edit]

No, the "no tresspassing" sign is not necessary to understand the plot - but that was conceived as the true end of the film. Rosebud was an afterthought. -- kosboot (talk) 14:36, 25 November 2009 (UTC)

All right, then. At least it's not making the synopsis worse.--LaukkuTheGreit (TalkContribs) 16:19, 25 November 2009 (UTC)

Thief and the Cobbler[edit]

I reverted your revert. I'm not trying to hurt the film. I understand that opinions about the animation vary with source. I personally have nothing against the film and ultimately feel for the creator whose work was ultimately destroyed. The article is going to receive increased traffic soon do to a review that will be out this week. I wanted to make sure that it is up to wiki specs beforehand - particularly wp:NPOV. Otherwise, it will be defaced something awful! Anyway, have a great day. -DevinCook (talk) 03:14, 22 November 2010 (UTC)

I understand completely. :-)I used a new wording that I think is both correct and NPOV.--LaukkuTheGreit (TalkContribs) 07:55, 22 November 2010 (UTC)

One-Eye was a Throne[edit]

In the original film, the slave women threw One-Eye off a cliff, whilst in the Recobbled Cut, the storyboard of which hadn't made it to the final cut, shows One-eye being sat on by the slave woman, hencing the words the slave woman were saying is actually 'Throne' not 'Throw', like in the original.--Talk 20:33 1 February 2011 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.136.138.122 (talk)
