1. Alice in Wonderland

The story of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland depicts a little girl, who falls down a rabbit hole through which she enters Wonderland.

Here, animals can talk and walk on two legs, and a game of croquet no longer has the rules, Alice is accustomed to. Alice begins an adventure, where she attempts to understand the logic of Wonderland or force logic upon Wonderland. However, the major drive of the story is Alice’s attempt to understand who she is.

2. Bambi

Bambi is about life. There are no major villains and there are multiple conflicts. It is a fantastic character study of this deer from birth until he becomes ruler of the forest. Also, this film has the best art quality out of all the Disney films. Its character designs are amazing and the background art creates this perfect atmosphere that makes you feel like you are in the forest.

3. Fantasia

Fantasia is groundbreaking in music, art and animation. It is the definition of why animation is considered another form of art. It is EPIC! Plus it inspired the modern day music videos.

The influx of funds allowed Disney to pay down debt while helping to finance the production of three new features: Pinocchio (1940), Fantasia (1940), and Bambi (1942). Fantasia, Disney’s most ambitious feature to date, didn’t have dialogue, except as narration between separate segments; it featured speechless cartoons set to classical pieces like Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring and Mussorgsky’s Night on Bald Mountain. Fantasia cost $2.28 million and was the first feature-length movie in which Mickey Mouse appeared. Sparing no expense, Disney hired the famed conductor Leopold Stokowski to select music and synchronize it with the animation. Though it won critical acclaim, Fantasia was not a success at the box office. Neither was Pinocchio, nor Bambi.

4. Frozen

frozen

Frozen is the story of two sisters named Anna and Elsa. Conflict starts after Elsa accidentally freezes the town of Arandale. Frozen is based off the Hans Christian Andersen story The Snow Queen. Frozen is the first Disney movie to introduce multiple princesses.

5. Pinocchio

pinocchio

Pinocchio is the story of a puppet name Pinocchio who wants to become a real boy. This movie has the iconic song when you wish upon a star one and Oscar for Best Music.

Walt Disney Productions, of course, defined classic, character-driven animation for generations. The company’s second feature—length animated film, Pinocchio, was produced in 1940, and the seven works from Pinocchio included here are treasures from a time when animation was already being reinvented thanks to the development of new technology and materials, namely celluloid. These “cels” are made of tough but flammable thermoplastic composed essentially of cellulose nitrate and camphor. While the drawings J. Worthingto, Foulfdllow and Gideon and the four small drawings titled Jiminy Cricket represent concept art for the film that were actually used in the production of Pinocchio and are easily identifiable in the film.

6. Sleeping Beauty

Sleeping Beauty is about a princess named Aurora who falls under a sleeping spell cast by the evil Maleficent. Maleficent is one of the main villains in the kingdom hearts series and will be played by Angelina Jolie in the live-action maleficent due for release in 2014.

Like Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty takes place “in a faraway land”. Remarkably, however, the cast is not only white but almost entirely blond. I’d also like to note that, although eventually both Aurora and the Prince turn out to have royal blood, their family would have been a lot less pleased if one of them had chosen a partner of poorer origins: “A peasant girl? You’re going to marry a peasant girl? You’re joking ... No, you can’t do this to me. Give up the throne, the kingdom, for some nobody? By Harry, I won’t have it! You’re a Prince! And you’re going to marry a Princess!” Aurora too is told she cannot forsake her predestination as a queen: “A crown to wear in grace and beauty, as is thy right and royal duty”. Eventually, there seems to be no need to address the issue further, because the wedding turns out as planned.

7. Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

Snow White and the Seven dwarfs, it was also groundbreaking. But out of all the Disney movies, it has the perfect combination of music, art, animation, story and characters. Then again, it was Disney’s first and they only had one shot to create an animated feature, so might as well perfect it. Amazing.

Animators at the Walt Disney Studios first learned of the project at a meeting during which Walt performed the entire story of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs exactly as he envisioned it in a feature film. He described the simmering potions of the Evil Queen, articulated the personality of each of the Seven Dwarfs, and finally acted out the final kiss that awakens the sleeping Snow White. At the end of his perfofmance,’ Valtnnounced Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs would be the studio’s first feature.

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs premiered on December 21, 1937, at the Carthay Circle Theater in Los Angeles. When the film ended, the audience stood and cheered. “Disney’s Folly” had become Disney’s smash hit. In its first release, the film earned $8,000,000, which easily covered the $1,500,000 cost of product ion and ensured the future of the studio. The success of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs allowed Walt to continue expanding, experimenting, and furthering the art and craft of animation and storytelling.

8. The Jungle Book (animated)

The story, The Jungle Book, by Rudyard Kipling is to have been set in the city of Seoni in the state of Madhya Pradesh, India. Though the area is not an actual rainforest, there are forests in the vicinity.

Mowgli’s best friends in the jungle are Baloo the bear and Bagheera the panther. The story of Tarzan is very similar as he was raised by Gorillas. Mowgli was raised by the Seeonee Wolves with Akela as his father. How might Mowgli be different if he were raised by a different animal family?

9. THE LION KING

The story of how THE LION KING got to Broadway has many beginnings. I believe I was there for all of them. The animated film THE LION KING opened on June 15, 1994, at Radio City Music Hall in New York. Its journey from conception to premiere was fraught with challenges. Several versions of the film had been developed, none of which resemble too closely the movie now playing daily on more than 40 million units on any number of televisions around the world.

10. The Little Mermaid

Disney’s version of Hans Christian Andersen’s The Little Mermaid became the strongest- performing frill-length animated feature since Walt Disney’s death. Grossing over $110 million in the United States, The Little Mermaid gave Disney animation a resurgence that would allow it to dominate the 1990’s animated feature genre. It also sparked a merchandising spree for Disney and led a missing generation of consumers to become reacquainted with the Disney name.
