Female Rats in Ratatouille?

Postby animagusurreal » Tue Sep 11, 2007 4:00 pm

Reposting this question since the other topic I posted it in got locked, since the other question I asked in the same post had been previously addressed :oops: :D .

I did a search on "female rats" and didn't come up with anything on this, so here goes...


Just something I'm curious about - obviously all of the rats with speaking roles are male, but did anyone notice any overtly female rat characters in the background? I've only seen the movie twice, but I didn't notice any. All the ones I remember seemed to be male.

Yes, I believe there was some female rats 'sprinkled' throughout the movie. I believe there was one at the end. (Boy, I sure hope that's not a spoiler...)

As Annoying mentioned, you can hear a few female rat voices calling out during the sequence where [spoil]Django's entire (rat) clan attempts to escape from the deadly gunshots of the farm lady, Mabel[/spoil]. You can even distinctly hear one lady rat call out, "Here! Here!" at one point.

Other than that, the amount of integral/well-known female rats in the film is a solid zero. I was rather hoping that Remy's mother, Desiree, would make an appearance, but alas, she does not. Oh well....

Annoying - No, I'm pretty sure that that's not a spoiler. ;)

Ya know....I think, now I'm working with having not seen the film in months, that [spoil] When Remy is talking about his experience near the end of the movie, when the screen fades to the rat table in the new resturant, there was a rat that made a comment along the lines of those "this actually happened" sorta thing. I think that rat was female actually.[/spoil]

Yeah, I also haven't seen it in about a month. And I also remember towards the end when [spoil]Remy is telling the story to the other rats at the tiny tables at the top of the new restaurant. I think one woman rat asked "how do you know?" [/spoil]So either that or it was a man with a very feminine voice.

[spoil] It might very well be female....If....I recall....the rat was thin, but had a sorta "tomboyish" hair on the top....must be young with a changing voice[/spoil]

Yeah, I'm also confused by that brown rat you're all talking about. I also think I remember a mom calling out to one of her children, but I don't remember seeing her.

Aside from that, the only other blatantly looking (to me) female besides Desiree was also in the artbook. I've been using her as a basis for drawing other female rats anyway.

Ha. I remember her. I absolutely love her design, though I haven't attempted to draw her yet. I really should....

[spoiler]I'm pretty sure that there are girly rats in the very last scene where the rats are all dining. As the camera pulls back the big ex-lab rat is flexing with a bunch of smaller rats around him. Chances are that they were female.[/spoiler]

Good one, Haunt! I never noticed Git doing that! I've gotta look closer once I've got the DVD.
