  • Oh man! When it comes to Disney, I can't just pick one! I love them all, classic and the new ones but if I have to choose then I think it's Petar Pan, as a kid I thought the idea of not growing up is real, it was magical for me. I also love Mulan, every strong girl is inspiring. It's she because her story was about courage away from romance.
  • Monster Inc. I love the fact that you witness each character going through tough situations against their rules and beliefs to the monster world. Also they grow up a little from the beginning showing you events and universal tests they had to pass.
  • I was debating whether or not to answer this one since I spent a good chunk of time many years ago babbling on about Disney films. But hey, why not. I love pretty much all of the Disney films, but out of nearly 60 films, I can pin down a few favorites. Sticking with the animated ones. I have several favorites depending on my mood. When I'm in the mood for prestige, it's Pinocchio, Fantasia, Dumbo, or Bambi. I also love The Three Caballeros, Alice in Wonderland, The Jungle Book, The Rescuers Down Under, Aladdin (my favorite of the Disney Renaissance formula), Lilo and Stitch, Treasure Planet, and Frozen. Yes, I really do love Frozen. In my (unpopular among the hipsters) opinion it is better and more genuine than anything Disney put out in the 90s. <3 In fact, the last few Disney films have been pretty wonderful thanks to Pixar's John Lasseter becoming the head of Disney's feature animation department a few years ago. I can't wait to see what they do next!
  • i tell everyone it's the lion king or aladdin despite the problematic third act (why couldn't jasmine just have saved the day?!)--but i digress--i think it's actually the little mermaid. i used to know that entire movie--dialogue, music and scenes--by heart.
  • The Lion King. Why: I love the animation, the songs , Timon & Pumba , It was heart warming.
  • The Sword in the Stone because it isn't a very well received by the public. It might not be a "princess" movie, but it is Merlin! It's just fun, wise, and a great story overall. I guess it can be "princess" movie in the male version, since Arthur goes from a peasant to a king.
  • I have two favorites: Mulan and Beauty and the Beast. The first one because when I was little (actually even until now) I felt just like her... like I can't assume the role I'm asked to play :/ And the second one... well, the idea of people falling in love because of something that isn't physical attraction sounds very cool (although I wonder why they don't make the story the opposite! why does the woman fall in love with the scary and ugly dude, and not a dude fall for a she-beast?)
  • The Lion King for sure, although I did watch Cinderella everyday as an itty-bitty kid.
