So, whats your favourite Disney movie?
For me its Beauty and the Beast. Closely followed by the Lion King. I just bought the newly released Beauty and the Beast collectors DVD, you see, and its on my mind.
Here's an idea - as Disney released Beauty and the Beast on IMAX with new scenes, then did a special collectors DVD, do you think they'll do it with other movies? Hopefully yes, and the Lion King will be next. Oh well, do you guys still admit to liking Disney, or are you all "Its for kids and girls" - ie, in denial?

In terms of storyline and character elements, I agree. Beauty and the Beast was certainly the best I've seen in a long time. In terms of eye candy, I liked the Hunchback of Notre Dame (even though they screwed it up and changed the ending) and Hercules (which they screwed up the ass).

Atlantise: Lost Empire is the greatest Disney movie ever. Followed closly by Toy Story 1 and 2, Bugs Life, and Monster Inc.

Aladdin, definately. It needs a DVD release as feature filled as Beauty and the Beast, and soon.

Nice Topic :)

1. Aladdin
2. The Lion King
3. The Jungle Book

Aladdin was brilliant - I've noticed that with the more recent Disney films, the soundtracks have been a little shoddy. The story was also extremely fun, too. Same with the Lion King. I haven't watched The Jungle Book for a long time, but it definetely belongs up there. Also worth noting are Toy Story and Dumbo.

Literally seconds after posting that, I skipped over to Animation Planet (http://www.animationplanet.net) to read the news:

Jungle Book II Wrapped

Production on The Jungle Book II is now wrapped, and is slated to hit the cinemas in the US on February 7th. It was originally set to be a direct to video release.

What can we expect? Singing. Dancing. Bear Neccessities. A rather strange cast of voices (Haley Joel Osmet as Mowgli, John Goodman as Baloo, Phil Collins as Lucky the Vulture).

I'm experiencing ambivolance about this one. I have yet to see a good sequel come from Disney's direct to video releases

I agree with the last sentence. Return of Jafar sucked. And I haven't seen Simba's Pride.

i've been told about, disney spoofs. such as when you watch "The Loin King" when simba falls down onto the ground and dust flys in the air becuse of it, it spell the word "sex."
i have seen the one with the cover for "The Little Mermaid" and it is true about the part of the castle looking like a mans penis.

Ugh, those things are awful.

I never, ever watch Disney's direct to video sequels. They are crap incarnate. Travesties not to be watched, except by little kids who don't know any better.

If you don't count Pixar's films I would have to say The Jungle Book.
Oh and I hated Mulan.

argh not fair! i replied before but now its not showing, booyah!

anyway in short what i typed earlier today:

Toy Story was amazing. STOP.
Belle and Beast okay but not best too fairytale like. STOP.
Aladdin nice and exotic indy like. STOP.
Lion's King really good. STOP.

i think that was about it?

i really think some of the 3d panning shots from Tarzan are BEAUTIFUL and that's how they should all be at Disney :)

Yeah, those sequels bite. Apparantly "Simbas Pride" was exactly the same as the Lion King, but Simba was the dad.
The disney spoofs thing is funny, on the directors commmentary for Beauty and the Beast they say whenever gaston looks through belle's books he's looking for a centre-fold.
Toy Story 1 & 2, as well as Monsters Inc. were funny, but not real classics in my opinion. When I think of Disney I think of hand drawn animation. That said, the computer generated bits in Aladdin / Beauty and the Beast and The Lion King (The lava eruption when Abu touches the lamp, the dance scene and the stampede respectively) all look amazing.

LoL, there was this one on the original version of "the Rescuers".
There was one frame that has a picture of a naked women for like half a second. Then they rereleased it. The origianl sells for a lot on eBay I think.

Those are myths, when simba hits the ground the dust spell SFX after the effects studio who worked on LK.

The towers are all shaped as spires, the guy who drew it was up all night just drawing TONs of those spires for the box, all of them had to be different. Somehow by accident one came out looking like a wang. Niether of these are Disneys chose or falt.


The Resuer one was an animator drawing it in, he was fired for it when found out(I think).

Hellbeard

Yeah, I think so, but I know for fact that that mermaid spire was a penis, I'll try to find a picture of it.

Btw, I own that little mermaid package!

Mercatfat beat me to the post. Myths is right. Snopes (http://www.snopes.com) is the one.


I haven't seen a lot of Disney films, but not counting the Pixar films (Toy Story, Toy Story II, Bugs Life, Monsters Inc.) cause I attribute them to Pixar not Disney, I'd say Alladdin is definitly one of my favourites. Great animation as always, Robin Williams is great and the music's fantastic. More recently, The Emperors New Groove had a few laughs, and I also saw Atlantis which was okay. Most of the disney films come off ok, but they need a new zing like they had when they had their resurgance with A little mermaid, Alladdin, Beauty, and Lion King.

Anyone see Titan AE, by Fox? It wasn't that great. Fox's big animation facility was shut down after that.
Though, Ice Age did well for them. Ice Age was good.

Iron Giant wasn't bad.

Next up for Disney is
Treasure Planet (http://disney.go.com/disneypictures/treasureplanet/).

Actually, I didn't like Beauty and the Beast that much...

Movies I did enjoy where most certainley The Rescuers Down Under. Also I liked Aladdin and loved Lion King.
Jungle Book is also one of my favorites.

I have never been a fan of disney, even in my youth, but I did enjoy The Jungle Book a lot.

What was Tale Spin? It rings a bell...

Yeah, Tale Spin rings a bell with me too - seems to be one of those shows that's not prominent enough to mark the mind.

Anyway, go here (http://www.talespin.net) for a site that leads to a webring.

Ugh, not Talispin! I never really liked that show. Same goes for chip & dale rescue rangers, I hated that show for some reason, as well as all the shows made after hit Disney animated movies (such as Aladdin, Hercules, the Little Mermaid.....)
The movies I like best are all are the ones that are super old. Like the way 101 Dalmatians was. I guess Peter Pan was one of my favorites, don't know why though. Dumbo and bambi were OK too, I was never upset at the famous hunt part in bambi though, maybe I was too young to really care about it.
i don't really like any of the ones after Beauty and the Beast, maybe the Rescuers Down Under, that was pretty good as a sequal (considering it was Disney's first-ever sequal, too.) I really didn't like Hunchback, I think they totally screwed up the story even though some say it looked good. I didn't like Pocohantas at all, that was just weird, and I don't really care all that much for all the new ones with moving backgrounds and stuff, like in Tarzan or Mulan. Admittedly Mulan's music was OK but I disliked the storyline, and Tarzan, I don't know, it was OK but I sure wasn't wild about it. I liked it better when they had the rough sort of backgrounds and slightly scratchy, old feel to them.
