I doubt that there are many people in the world who haven’t watched and enjoyed a Disney Movie. I call it the wonderful world of Disney movies, as there is a world of them, and they are all wonderful clean family entertainment.
Animated Disney movies just get better and better over time, with all the advances in technology. Let us take a look at some of the famous animated movies that Disney has made. The following list of movies was produced by Walt Disney Productions prior to 1986, and then the company was changed to Walt Disney Animation Studio’s.
Snow white and the Seven Dwarfs started the ball rolling in December 1937. Next we had Pinocchio in February 1940. Funtasia was also released in 1940, and then in 1941 the ever popular Dumbo the elephant came into being with his big flapping ears.
1942 saw the release of two wonderful world of Disney movies namely Bambi which is another favorite to this day and a less popular one Saludos Amigos. Other movies released by Disney in the 1940’s were – The Three Caballeros, Make Mine Music, Fun and Fancy Free, Melody Time and The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr Toad. Most of these are not known by today’s Disney movie goers, but form some of the foundations of the Disney Movie Empire.
1950 saw the release of the evergreen Cinderella. Children worldwide know the Disney version of this story, and not many know the original way in which it was written. In fact during the fifties Disney released many hits that are still popular today, including Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan, Lady the Tramp and the lovely Sleeping Beauty.
During the 1960’s when the rock era started to become popular, Disney bought out more evergreens, including 101 Dalmatians, The sword in the Stone, and Jungle Book. In 1970, the year I was born, one of my childhood favorites was released. The Aristocats. Disney had a wonderful way of making animals come alive for children. I remember believing that all my pets could talk.
The seventies also brought with it some more wonderful world of Disney movies, including – Robin Hood, The many adventures of Winnie the Pooh and The Rescuers. The eighties came and Disney got even more advanced with The Fox and the Hound, The Black Cauldron, The Great Mouse Detective, Oliver and Company and my personal favorite The Little Mermaid.
The nineties were started with a sequel – The Rescuers Down and Under followed by Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, The Lion King, Pocahontis, The Hunch Back of Notre Dame, Hercules, Mulan and Tarzan.
Funtasia 2000 started off the 21st century with a bang. Over the last decade the wonderful world of Disney movies has treated us to movies including Dinosaur, The Emperor’s New Groove, Atlantis the Lost Empire, Lilo and Stitch, Treasure Planet, Brother Bear, Home on the Range, Chicken Little, Meet the Robinson’s, Bolt, The Princess and the Frog, Tangled, Winnie the Pooh and Reboot Ralph.
