    I cannot wait to see how they fuck up those cool alien designs. Nothing is sacred. Everything will be made bland and uninspired.
    I wasn't aware but it doesn't surprise me. It seems everything is being turned into live action these days. instead of coming up with original ideas.

    Pinocchio, Dumbo, Robin Hood, Jungle Book, and Aladdin were probably my favorites.

    Oh yeah, especially from a Disney cartoon, it was incredibly dark. The music is great and memorable too.... and I still have uncomfortable feelings about foxes.

    Pinocchio was my first favorite Disney film.

    Aladdin is the first movie I took my first date.

    After that I pretty much outgrown Disney. I like Ducktales and Disney afternoon and The Mickey Mouse Club. But that was it overall.

    Lion King was the last Disney anything I really liked. I think.

    Oh yeah I’ve seen Dumbo not my favorite but Dumbo and Mom scene will make me cry like a bitch. Poor Dumbo and his mom. She was a good mom

    Quite a few of those Disney movies from those older decades I still quote occasionally, just because they're that memorable (and I love the voice cast, as they were reused quite often). Also, the messaging/mentality put into Disney movies is quite a bit different than a lot of the more recently incarnations, as recently Disney has become way more "safe" and politically trendy with some of the content than before. I suppose there can be some edgy scenes in recent Disney movies, but sometimes they feel like they're forced instead of just making a movie and letting it speak for itself.

    As a general criticism, I do prefer when a movie is made for adults instead of for kids with the focus on making it a great film. I'm sure people can reminisce about films they saw as a child and loved, and once they become adults and rewatch the films they either have a new appreciation for the film because it's good as an adult... or you respond with "Wow, that was trash with a bunch of flashy things that only a child would like." Disney does a pretty good job at this, but I still feel like they add way too much obvious exposition or cater way too much for trying to get a kid to understand something that will likely still go over their heads or they won't care about for another decade. As a small example, the end of Frozen: Disney could've done well enough to have the frozen heart resolution occur with no exposition, but they just had to have Olaf provide exposition. It's minor, but those kinds of scenes add up and detract from a movie. It's a pitfall that always reminds me of the character Fouad in Family Guy who is constantly making exposition about jokes or comments/expressions to explaining them in detail... except in Family Guy it's a comedic device, in a Disney film it's catering to children who likely don't care.

    Just to nit pick, but An American Tail and All Dogs go to Heaven are Don Bluth studio films, not Disney.

    My favorites were always Treasure Planet, Atlantis, and The Black Cauldron. The world building and sci-fi element of the first two was amazing.

    The Black Cauldron.


    And the movie Disney is too chicken shit to re-release.

    Just because I don't agree with you doesn't mean I support the other side.

    I believe the Little Mermaid has the potential to be a visually stunning "live-action" movie.

    You can easily recognize Don Bluth from the art and animation style of character faces, which have a lot of focus on the mouth.

    Robin hood was dark?!? What kind of sheltered ass childhood did you have? Robin Hood is a freaking technicolor unicorn farting iridescent rainbows compared to proper "dark" things like the Black Cauldron, the Secret of Nimh, or The Dark Crystal (not an animated movie, but still aimed at "kids")

    Frozen, you need to see for yourself. After Tangled, which I liked, I found Frozen unbearable. Then again, families (and especially girls) seem to love it. Let's say I trashed my copy of the film after watching it. But I am sure Frozen Fever will also be a massive hit, so what do I know.

    I grew up on Jungle Book - first film I ever saw in a cinema as a kid. Robin Hood I liked even more. So those win by Nostalgia default

    Aside from Disney, Pixar (yeah, they are kinda merged these days) made the films that blew me away in the last years...be it Toy Story, Wall-E or Up. But my favourite animated films are non-Disney: The Iron Giant, Akira and Spirited Away. Honourable mention to The secret of NIMH).

    Ex-Disney animator. He also made the Dragon's Lair video game and IMHO his best film is "Secret of NIMH"

    Aladdin is my all time favourite.

    Most disney movie tends to turn out good.

    I don't get the dislike for Frozen tbh apart from the fact that anything that does amazingly well seems to have a group of people hating on it - personally I loved the message from Ana's storyling about not falling in love with the first man that comes along (aka most Disney plots).

    Lilo and Stitch / Aladdin are both amazing. But the criminally underrated Emperor's New Groove is still my favourite. Yzma gives me life.

    10-12 years between the films make a childhood.

    The part with the fire in the end of Jungle Book, where Mowgli fights Sheer Khan in the Wasteland, did scare me as a child. And All the nice animals in chains and in a prison in Robin Hood? With the drab mood. Take a look how many will tell you that the death of Bambi's mother (off screen at that) really messed with them.

    Yeah, today a child might not react that way...although a healthy kid that has not been exposed to Fortnite at the age of 3, might just still get the Willies.

    Doesn't take anything away from the other films you mentioned, I just literally saw them 10 years later and was an entirely different person by then.
