主题：someone special will always make you special.
many of us worry about choosing our partner, but make sure you opt for someone who inspires you, supports you and makes you feel special, not someone who drains energy out of you. someone special will always make you special. in “rio,” blu is a pet and can’t fly initially, but having met jewel he does things he couldn’t do earlier. jewel literally transforms blu in all ways and makes him special.
主题：go on a quest by faith, not by sight. you will be rewarded nevertheless.
marianne williamson famously said, “as we are liberated from our own fears, our presence automatically liberates others.” so if you believe in something, sometimes you have to just go by faith, not by sight. had marlin never gone on his quest, he wouldn’t have found nemo. had nemo not tried to escape from the aquarium, he wouldn’t have reached his father. both trusted their gut instincts and defied the odds to come through, finally reaping love.

主题：to be someone special, you just have to believe that you are special.
there is no secret to anything, it just takes belief. once you believe that, you can make anything happen. this is how po realizes the true meaning of his own reflection in the dragon scroll in “kung fu panda.” belief is everything. and once that belief becomes a deep conviction, things begin to happen at your will and nothing can stop you.
主题：not everyone can become a great artist, but a great artist can come from anywhere.
there is an artist in everyone but many of us are afraid to take the leap, doubting our abilities. nobody is entitled to become a great artist based on personal advantages and vested interests, but everyone can become an artist provided they are decisive and passionate about it. it’s all about choice, not about OPPOA5rtunities. if a rat could become a fine chef in “ratatouille,” why can’t we become anything we aspire to be? you may argue that it’s just a fiction, but every fiction is a figment of someone’s imagination, inspired by truth.
主题：the worst part in your life could turn out to be the best part later.
lightning mcqueen, the super race car in the film, accidentally ends up in a small town called radiator springs. he is desperate to win the piston cup race, which is going to be held in los angeles in a week, but he is forced to stay in the small town until he mends the road he destroyed. however, after initial hesitation, he begins to develop a beautiful bonding with the people there and he finds something beyond piston cup: love and family. “cars” had a very simple lesson to tell: sometimes the worst possible things that happen in your life could turn out to be the best ones later. you may not understand why initially, but later you realize those moments actually define you.
主题：it’s all about family.
family is not an important thing: it’s everything. life is all about human bonding. stop searching fanatically for other possessions and just find your “family.” in “despicable me,” gru desperately wants to steal the moon, but in due course, after adopting three little kids for selfish gains, he paradoxically finds a love that changes his perceptions forever. he is not the same person anymore.
how to train your dragon
主题：never judge others cynically.
judging is easy but understanding is difficult, that is the reason most of us are quick to judge. before leaping to judgment, try to understand others’ perspective. you never know what they might have been going through. in “how to train your dragon,” stoick has fixed notions based on his prejudices, but hiccup tries to understand dragons from their perspective. once he does that, the whole island is saved and dragons become residents. a considered understanding without judging is all we need for the betterment of our lives.
