Re: POLL: Best Movie from the Disney Renaissance?

Little Mermaid, The Lion King, and Beauty and The Beast were the best. The others just seemed a little less than stellar. I think when they began churning out the cgi animation it kind of changed things. When was the last time they released a decent film in theaters instead of an umpteenth direct to video sequel?

I like how they are slightly changing their vault system to rush out blu-ray and 'Diamond' editions of the classics. It was a stupid 'artificial scarcity' thing to do in the first place.

Re: POLL: Best Movie from the Disney Renaissance?

I thought Princess and the Frog was a good return to form for them. Not the most amazing movie but definitely up there in terms of story, characters (good villain), and the music. I really love the music from that movie.

Re: POLL: Best Movie from the Disney Renaissance?

Is it possible Princess and the Frog could be a springboard of a Second Renaissance of traditional animated fare for Disney?
So that begs the question, do they have anything in the pipeline using that format for release?

Re: POLL: Best Movie from the Disney Renaissance?

^I confess, The Princess and the Frog bored me. The only worthwhile sequence for me was the lead character's dream sequence of opening her restaurant. I thought the animation and design there was superb. The rest of it was forgettable.

I'm looking forward to Tangled though.

Re: POLL: Best Movie from the Disney Renaissance?

Tangled(The Rapunzel film) is Disney? I thought it was Dreamworks.

Maybe P&tF is the start of a Second Renaissance.
Princess did have a good showing, all things considered, for it being the first 2-D format picture in the traditional style in some time.

Tangled is in 2-D as well, right?

The Princess and the Frog underperformed expectations, so it's kind of indeterminate at this point. There's one known non-CGI animated film scheduled (a new Winnie the Pooh in 2011; Lasseter is a big fan of that property) - one other, The Snow Queen, was cancelled post-Princess and the Frog. The other known productions are CGI, though I don't see why they couldn't do CGI musicals if that's what people want (actually, the other major studios haven't used that for the more traditional musical format yet, so there's an opening).

Tangled is Disney, and it's CGI (a specific style they're using to try and mimic oil paintings).

Re: POLL: Best Movie from the Disney Renaissance?

I'd like to see a nice Rapunzel film, but I'm not sure I'm going to like the way Disney's going to make it look. The Princess and the Frog was no big woop. As you say, most of their films 'underperform' it seems. Perhaps they should just stop making new movies and rerelease the classics? Nothing but restoration, no 3d or cg corrections, just the good stuff!

Re: POLL: Best Movie from the Disney Renaissance?

Thank you, Harvey, for voting for Rescuers Down Under. I ALMOST voted for it, but I really do love my Beauty and the Beast.

But man, I've probably seen Rescuers Down Under more times than BatB, and I've DEFINITELY seen it more than the first Rescuers movie. I adore the movie, even now at age 25.

Re: POLL: Best Movie from the Disney Renaissance?

Hmm, I was sure The Lion King would win. Since Lilo & Stitch isn't on the list, I voted for Beauty and the Beast. Aladdin is the funniest. Mulan should be more known than it is. The Hunchback of Notre Dame is...interesting. It doesn't really feel like a Disney film.

Weird, I've always thought of the Rescuers Down Under as having more in common with the pre-Renaissance films.

Thanks to this thread, I bumped Lilo & Stitch to the top of my Neflix queue, and have just watched it. What a great movie! Now I have to go buy it!

Re: POLL: Best Movie from the Disney Renaissance?

I stopped watching them after "The Lion King". Even though I was only 13 in 1996, I felt liked I'd grown out of animated Disney movies by then, so I haven't seen any of the others in the poll from 1996 on. My personal favourite is "Aladdin", but I think "Beauty and the Beast" is probably the best in terms of objective quality. It was beautifully crafted and worthy of a best picture nomination. I just don't think the story grabbed me.

I think all of the ones I've seen have the same basic problem, which is that the supporting characters are all more interesting than the leads. I remember liking the Genie, Timon & Pumba, and Sebastian much more than the main characters in their respective films. I watched "Beauty and the Beast" and just thought it was too girly. Can't really hold that against it, I guess. There's also the general fact that I think love stories work better in live action.
