Tonight is girls night and we plan to cuddle puppies, eat popcorn and watch Disney movies, and so we were all discussing our favourites in the group chat. Here’s my list of my Top 15 Favourite Disney films.
Oliver and Company (1988) – This is by far my favourite and most watched Disney movie. I find that not many people my age have watched it or even heard of it! It’s the sweetest story with the best characters (dogs!!!) and my favourite Disney song ‘Why Should I Worry’.
The Fox and The Hound (1981) – I honestly just fall in love with Tod and Copper. Their mischievousness is adorable. It makes me really want a pet fox!
The Aristocats (1970) – You’ll find a lot of my favourite Disney films are animal orientated. I love how sassy Marie is, and Toulouse’s little ‘ftt ftt ftt’ thing he does! Favourite part has to be when Scat Cat and The Alley Cats sing Everybody Wants To Be A Cat.
Lady and The Tramp (1955) – Name a better couple. I’ll wait. Best love story ever told. That’s a fact.
Robin Hood (1973) – This film overjoys and saddens me at the same time. I love how sneaky Robin Hood and Little John are, deceiving the Prince and helping the poor. Always thought Maid Marian was a really pretty Disney character too.
The Jungle Book (1967) – Look For The Bare Necessities! One of the best soundtracks and an absolutely fabulous live remake in 2016.
Pocahontas (1995) – Now, I don’t like Disney Princesses, but I do like Pocahontas. She’s a strong, independent lady that I feel you can learn a lot from. It’s also kinda nice that she doesn’t end up with John Smith – sorry.. spoilers.
Aladdin (1992) – I love this because 99% of Disney Princesses are quite dumb/naive but not Jasmine! And don’t you think Genie is the best character ever?
Nightmare Before Christmas (1993) – also in my top 5 Chrismas movies which you can read here. Absolutely brilliant creation.
Alice in Wonderland (1951) – Who doesn’t love this classic and all it’s funky remakes? Tim Burton’s was phenomenal.
The Lion King (1994) – another Disney with an amazing soundtrack! However finding out that Scar and Mufassa aren’t blood brothers kinda sucked?
The Little Mermaid (1989) – mermaids. Need I say more? It’s also a super sweet storyline how Ariel just wants to see what it’s like to have legs (while the rest of us are dreaming we have mermaid tails!)
Peter Pan (1953) – It’s so good but so sad that the theory is that they’re all dead… Hook is a great film too!
Zootopia (2016) – I’ve not watched many modern Disney films (I still refuse to watch Frozen), but this. This is a new level of brilliant. Female heroine bunny defies all odds and saves the city. Absolutely hilarious too, you don;t even feel like a sad adult watching a kids film.
Moana (2016) – my niece loves this film and so I have to watch it alllllll the time but I really don’t mind because it is actually so good! And another independent female heroine!!! I just wish the lil piggy was in the film a bit more. Moana reminds me a little of Pocahontas too in some ways.
