I love Disney and it’s great projects. I’ve been watching their movies since I was young and so have many children from many generations. These are the movies that I really enjoyed and I think if you haven’t seen any of these films you should at least try them out.
Fantasia was a beautiful movie with wonderful creations of Walt Disney. The one thing that I truly enjoyed is how the animations flowed greatly with the music and told a story. Although there wasn’t a lot of talking, the movie portrayed the story visually. It not only have animations but the movie showed the talented orchestra playing. Also, this was the movie that made Mickey Mouse more famous. It’s a classic everyone should watch including many unique stories. Every story has more darker and lighter themes involving their story and music.
The movie was directed by Ron Clements and John Musker. Moana is a beautifully told story of a princess who lives on an island who must sail through the ocean to save her people from an old curse. The music was great because it fit the setting and the animators did a wonderful job creating the scenery in the movie.
Maleficent was directed by Robert Stromberg. This is a movie of the Sleeping Beauty villain Maleficent (Angelina Jolie) and her perspective in the story answering a lot of questions we didn’t get answered in the original story. The film did a remarkable job creating Maleficent as a character who we didn’t get to see much in the original film.
Coco was directed by Lee Unkrich. The film is about a young boy named Miguel from a family that doesn’t allow music in their home because of an incident that happened to his great-grandparents. He later discovers the Land of the Dead, which is from the cultural holiday known as Day of the Dead, where he meets his older ancestors and learns lessons. The movie did a very good job based on animations, great storytelling and to portray Miguel ’s culture onto the screen.
The Emperor’s New Groove (2000)
This comedy was directed by Mark Dindal. Because of Emperor Kuzco’s (David Spade) rude behavior, he gets turned into a llama by his advisor Yzma (Eartha Kitt). Kuzco and his friend Pacha (John Goodman) try to get him back into a human before it is too late. The movie was fun to watch and had great characters.
