Overthinking Disney

I have always loved Disney films; from my first ever cinematic experience with Aladdin, via my duvet day favourite 101 Dalmatians, right up to the amazing songs of Moana. So, when a friend asked if I wanted to join her in watching the entire 55 disc Classic box set from start to finish, I was up for this.

However, re-watching these films, some of which I have not seen for years, as an adult does raise some interesting questions. So, I will be blogging about the films as we go. Click on the links below for the series.

You’ll notice that the part-live-action films – Mary Poppins, Bedknobs & Broomsticks, Pete’s Dragon, Dinosaur, and Enchanted – are not included in this list; they were omitted from the box set, so we’re skipping them for now. Also left out was Song of the South, for obvious reasons, and DuckTales the Movie and A Goofy Movie, because those were based on TV shows.

We have discounted sequels, except where included by the box set curators (Rescuers Down Under, Ralph Breaks The Internet), and the Pixar films, though we may get to those in time.
