Nnnnaaaaa sevayna va va mee see ma ma…I actually have no idea what they really sing there but that never stops us from singing it anyway. This is one of the greatest Disney classic movies of all time. If I were to name my top 5 Disney movies, this would be on the list. There is nothing about this movie that is boring, or dumb or bad. Everything about it is just perfect. The characters, the music, the story and J.T.T. voicing Simba! When you watch it you can’t help but enjoy every last thing about it as it melts your own cares away. It’s just so…so…Hakuna Matata!
Oh where do I begin? This movie is one of the BEST Disney movies of all time, no one of the BEST movies of all time. Period. Beautiful animation, a heartfelt wonderful story, and some of the greatest characters you will ever meet. Belle is an incredibly smart, courageous girl who was willing to give up her freedom, her life, for her father without a second thought. She knew she was worth more than settling for Gaston and wasn’t going to take any of the Beast’s crap. Who wouldn’t look up to this girl? This film is truly one of the greats. Did you know it was the first animated movie to be nominated for an Academy Award? Yeah, it was. It’s that good.
Oh man, here we go. I love a lot of Disney movies, but this is my absolute favorite Disney movie of all time. Ever since I was a kid, I have been hooked on the movie and the story of Alice in Wonderland. I must have seen this movie more than a hundred times. I loved this little girl and related to her need to escape into a world that was completely different than reality. I was enchanted by her adventures and couldn’t wait to travel the world to have adventures of my own. Even to this day, Alice is my favorite character. This movie is just so magical and one of the great classics of Walt Disney animation.
YES, YES, YES! We completely jumped on the Frozen bandwagon. We both remember watching this in the theater and knowing right away this was something special. We fell in love with the story, the music and the characters. We love awkward yet determined and loyal Anna and protective, loving yet conflicted Elsa. These characters have such depth and you can’t help but become completely swept up into their world. (And yes, we braved waiting in the 4 hour line at Disneyland to meet Anna and Elsa). And no way there is anyone out there that doesn’t love Olaf. If you hate Olaf then you are dead inside. I know most parents are probably sick of this movie from your children watching it hundreds of times, but your kids just have great taste and you know you love it too.
LOVE. THIS. MOVIE. Love everything about it. Makes you laugh, makes you cry, and makes you really want to go to ride that Hawaiian roller coaster ride. Lilo and Stitch are the epitome of best friends. They are both such unique and dimensional characters. We love watching them. This movie has Hawaii, surfing, space ships, aliens and ‘ohana. What more could you want?
So what movie is next after watching the most recent Disney film? Why, the first feature length Disney film, obviously. Snow White is the movie the started it all and because of that will always hold a special place in any Disney fan’s heart.
Have you ever been watching a movie and had a question or two pop into your mind that is never answered in the story? Of course you have, we all have. So instead of letting the questions go unanswered, why not answer it yourself? Melissa and I often ask and answer our own questions when watching a movie, especially one we have seen many times. While watching Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs this time around, the following questions were asked:
Are the seven dwarfs brothers? If not, why do they live together?
For who and why do they dig for diamonds?
What happens to the diamonds after the put them in the vault?
How did their current situation come to be?
Melissa gave the answer that they are not brothers. They were each hired by the King (before he died) to dig for the diamonds and other precious jewels that could be found in the mine. Since the mine was too small for a normal sized man to fit and work in, dwarfs were hired for the job. In exchange for digging in the mines the whole day through, the dwarfs were given room and board in a nearby cottage. And there they live out their days.
