Disney and their Game of Thrones counterparts

I shall start off by mentioning the first list is of the female characters and second further down the page are the male characters.
There are many videos and web pages comparing the Disney characters with the characters from Game of Thrones. I don't agree with a lot of them so I shall make my own list of character matches. I shall first make a list of Disney ladies with their Game of Thrones parallels.
The characters from Game of Thrones in the list here are from the "Ice and Fire" books by George R. R. Martin. I placed the names in the list beside who they're similar to in character and traits.

Snow White - Sansa Stark
Aurora - Myrcella Baratheon
Ariel - Yara (Asha) Greyjoy
Mulan - Brienne of Tarth
Tiana - Meera Reed
Rapunzel - Shireen Baratheon
Cinderella - Shae
Belle - Margaery Tyrell
Merida - Arya Stark
Elsa - Lysa Arryn
Anna - Catelyn Stark
Moana - Ashara Dayne
Ursula - Melisandre
Maleficent - Daenerys Targaryen
Queen Grimhilde - Cersei Lannister/ Baratheon
Alice - Waif
Tinkerbell - Leaf
Cruella de Vil - Unella
Pocahontas - Ygritte
Esmeralda - Osha
Jasmine - Arianne Martell
Sofia - Missandei
Grandma Fa - Olynna Tyrell
Chicha - Ellaria Sand
Mother Gothel - Selyse Florent/ Baratheon
Widow Tweed - Old Nan
Mrs Hasagawa - Ghost of High Heart
Megara - Queen Nymeria
Kida - Queen Alysanne Targaryen
Fiona - Walda Frey
Lilo - Lyanna Mormont

Disney is full of motherless characters. Many of them had mothers who died tragically so this is where I'm stuck with Lyanna Stark and Elia Martell but they match with the dead mothers from Disney. I gathered names for another list.
These are Disney male characters matched with Game of Thrones counterparts that I think are similar. I didn't place everyone here because, even though some Game of Thrones people might look like certain Disney characters, they don't act like them. Joffrey Baratheon, who I struggled to find a Disney counterpart looks like boy Arthur from "Sword in the Stone" but Joffrey acts like a monster in Game of Thrones. It didn't feel right placing them as a similar pair because they're not alike. For that reason I left him out as well as others.

Li Shang - Jon Snow
Zeus - King Robert Baratheon
Jafar - Petre Baelish/ Littlefinger
John Smith - Jaime Lannister
Doc - Tyrion Lannister
King Fergus - Eddard Stark
Peter Pan - Bran Stark
Jim Hawkings - Jojen Reed
Prince Taran - Robb Stark
Mowgli - Rickon Stark 
Poseidon - Edmure Tully
Ratigan - Walder Frey
Mad Hatter - Theon Greyjoy
Captain Hook - Euron Greyjoy
Frollo - High Sparrow
Horned King - Night King
Beast - Sandor Clegane
Chernabog - Gregor Clegane "The Mountain"
Prince Phillip - Loras Tyrell
Shan Yu - Khal Drogo
Gaston - Daario Naharis
Aladdin - Oberyn Martell
Hades - Mad Aerys II
Gus - Samwell Tarly
Scar - Tywin Lannister
Dr. Facilier - Stannis Baratheon 
Edgar Balthazar - Lord Varys
Francisco - Davos Seaworth
Geppetto - Qyburn
Merlin - Maester Pycelle
Hercules - Bronn
Kenai - Jorah Mormont
Syndrome - Ramsey Bolton

The Howling

Here is my review of the werewolf movie "The Howling" (1981). It stars Patrick Macnee, Dee Wallace, Christopher Stone and Robert Picardo. It was directed by Joe Dante and the film is based on the novel "The Howling" by author Gary Bradner.
A doctor advised Karen White to spend a while in a remote community for some healing therapy after suffering an ordeal that gave her amnesia. There was a crime scene and an investigation into a serial killer. Karen White and her husband go to the Community, a place in the countryside. There are plenty of gorgeous scenes of dark steaming forests and a warm beach, but it wasn't all peaceful for Karen. After listening to disturbing howling noises at night, her suspicions are raised. There is just something not right there at the healing commune.  
The special effects are still impressive today. 
I rate the film 8/10 as it's awesome, with some daft humour and  it was scary at the same time.
Emotions: I'm hungry for rare steak.

Sounds of the wolves

This is a "1 Hour Howling Wolves White Noise" posted by Shut Up I'm Relaxing.
The video is for background listening, and so click on it to hear the sounds. You may find therapy in listening to it. You may get drowsy and tired. Mostly just meditate and chill with this video playing. I posted this video as a special ambient sound.

Lupercalia approaches

Lupercalia, or the Feast of the Wolf, known to many as St. Valentines Day, or among the Heathens it is the honour of Vali. This is the time when people of ancient Rome celebrated the season, with a Feast of Luperca in honour of the wolf deity. That wolf deity is Goddess Lupa, a great mother wolf, and one of the many of the Earth's goddess forms. Her maternal instincts and love helped care for two abandoned human boy babies. The babies were the twin brothers called Romulus and Remus. They suckled the milk from their foster wolf mother. Nourishing the goddess wolf's milk gave them the strength and power of the divine Wolf. These boys grew to manhood and as men, they founded the city of Rome. From Rome itself, a vast powerful empire was made, with territory expanding across most of the world. The Roman people had the Wolf in their veins. Like wolves, they created a super territory and acted as the Alpha. The Romans were a Wolflike People and they celebrated Luperca, the great feast of goddess Lupa.Lupa, mother of Rome. Today we honour this time as a celebration of love, sex and romance. But in our hearts, we're celebrating the feast of the wolf.
