First. I LOVE movies. LOVE THEM. Second, I tried to make a simple list of my top ten favorite movies, but as my list grew and grew, I realized that was near impossible. So I’m simplifying things and doing my list of favorite Disney movies, animated or almost-animated. (If I start to add in Star Wars or Marvel or everything else Disney has done or owns or will own, things will be too complicated again.) So. Here’s my list, number one being my favorite!
10. Emperor’s New Groove – My sister and I watched this constantly as children, and without fail, we would laugh until we couldn’t breathe and tears were rolling down our cheeks every time that cat falls and screams and then launches into the air and screams again. We loved it!
9. Lady and the Tramp – I mostly loved this because of the cute little puppies at the end of the movie.
8.) Robin Hood – My sister and I had the biggest crush on that manly fox.
7.) Enchanted – This counts as half-animated and is the funniest show! I hope the upcoming sequel doesn’t disappoint...
6.) Toy Story – I’m not choosing which one is the best. They’re all great! Love Tom Hanks’ and Tim Allen’s voices in them.
5.) Pocahontas – She was my favorite Disney Princess growing up. I watched it recently for the first time since I was a child and was surprised at the heart-wrenching ending. The wind tells her to go!! Horrible.
4.) Mary Poppins – I love Julie Andrews. Everything about this film is perfection. So funny and timeless.
3.) Cinderella (Live-Action) – That dress. What I wouldn’t give to wear that dress.
2.) Tangled – Still a favorite. So romantic. So sweet. Flynn Ryder is the best.
1.) Moana – This is still a surprise to me that this is my favorite. For some reason, this movie speaks to me. Her love of the ocean, being torn between her home and the wide open waters. I absolutely love it. And you better believe that I sing along to every word each time my kids “make” me listen to the music!
There you have it! What is your list of top ten favorite animated (or almost) Disney movies? I’d love to know!
