UPDATE: My Disney Films List

And the story begins with an update. A couple of months ago, in November I believe, I put together a post with a list of every Walt Disney Animated film I've seen. This summer I've given myself the goal of crossing out as many as I possibly can before school takes over as my number one priority. I have made some pretty good headway so far!

The funny thing, as in funny haha not funny peculiar, is each time you cross out a film, Disney releases another one. So the list of films needing to viewed went up to 55! Luckily, I am keeping up quite well.

Most recently I have scratched Dumbo, The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad, and Wreck-It Ralph off, and added Zootopia to the list. Zootopia came out after my original post but I saw it pretty instantaneously so it too has been crossed.


Dumbo is one of the most famous Disney films, especially considering it is part of the first five of Disney's original films. The first five simply implies that the first five films all had varying styles and techniques making them all look quite different from one another. I cannot say I particularly enjoyed Dumbo. As an adult I know a lot of the scenes, notably the pink elephants scene, would have scared me as a child. Plus, the incredibly horrific treatment of Dumbo by the rest of his fellow tent mates is difficult to watch. I was intrigued to find that Dumbo did not speak at all! Although, he is only a baby.

The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad is surprisingly harder to track down than I thought. Though, I knew gathering those old school films from the 1940s would be a challenge in of itself. I think that of the two individual stories, based on The Legend of Sleepy Hollow and The Wind in the Willows, I liked The Wind in the Willows segment better. It was nice to see that after years of hearing about Mr. Toad's Wild Ride in the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World Resort, I was able to finally get a clear idea of the story. Not to mention be able to see a few easter eggs from the film which still exist in the Magic Kingdom to the movie savvy eye.

Yesterday, I crossed off Wreck-It Ralph and I thought this one was adorable. The movie was one I have heard many a good thing about and being the secret gamer I am, I needed to see it. Spotting all the video game references from The Legend of Zelda to Final Fantasy gave me a burst of pride. The story, though simple, made me laugh. I didn't come away thinking it was unmemorable, so that was a bonus. Apparently, they will be making a sequel to this one. The necessity for one in my eyes is debatable, but, hey, I said the same thing about Pixar's Toy Story 2. I've been eating that crow for years.

I'm not sure as to why I have made viewing every Walt Disney Animation film a goal of mine. All in all, it will be an impossible task unless Disney goes out of business. Please, no! They will continue making films long after I'm gone like they were before I came around. Nevertheless, onward I go!

Do you love Disney animated films as much as I do? How many have you seen?

Happy Sunday!
