Hi guys. So over the course of the months, I have been watching YouTube videos with people talking about their top ten favourite Disney films. This has made me want to put out a top 10 list for myself of my favourite Disney films to show that I am and will always be a big Disney fan. There are some great Disney movies that came out even before the whole Frozen hype, which has actually become too much that it is still showing in the cinema and has been since about November 2013.
Disney films really mean a lot to me because they make me happy even as an adult and most of them are movies that will never get old, and some of them also make you think which is actually missing from some kids films and TV shows today. So here, I have split it into 3 parts because I need to explain my favourites and here it is, my 10 favourite Disney films of all time from 10 to 7.
10. The Chronicles Of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe (2005)
The first time that I actually heard about this story was in primary school where we watched the cartoon version of the popular C.S Lewis book. From then on, I have been interested in the story of the Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe. So, when I found out that Disney had made a live action film based on this story, I was so excited but did not expect what I was about to see which was a spectacular film.
This is a film about 4 kids during the first world war who are evacuated to the countryside and find a wardrobe that takes them to fantasy world called Narnia. There, they must join allies with Aslan to defeat the white witch.
This is a film that I watch every Christmas (hence the snow created by the white witch) and every time I watch this movie, it is as if I am just experiencing this universe for the first time. This is an action packed film and the best Narnia movie out there which is why it is number 10 in my list and deserves an 8/10.
9. Saving Mr Banks (2013)
This is actually the third time that I have mentioned this film on my blog because it is the movie that I loved and actually surprised me as to how much I love it. Before this film, I just thought that Mary Poppins was just an average movie and never really understood the meaning behind it until I actually saw Saving Mr Banks. Now, I appreciate Mary Poppins and how hard Disney worked to bring it to life for people to love this film 50 years later after it first came out.
This performances are my favourite from both Tom Hanks and Emma Thompson which shows how much of a legend both of them are. This movie also makes you apprentice film making in general and is great to watch no matter what mood you are in. This is great biopic story by one of the greatest studios ever which is why it is my number 9 and deserves an 8/10.
8. Peter Pan (1953)
“Think of a wonderful thought, any merry little thought”. This is the song that I think of when I think of Peter Pan. It always makes me smile and it reminds me of the time when I was young and wanted to fly, which is one of the best memories that I have.
This film is about 3 kids from the darling family who are taken away to the magical world of Neverland lead by the inspiration of Wendy’s stories, Peter Pan.
This was the first film that had a villian that I actually liked and also made me laugh. I was obsessed with Captain Hook and always hoped that Peter would defeat him but would also want to always see him and Smee again. The crocodile also made me laugh in movie mainly because you would always know where he is, and he scared Captain Hook because of the ticking noise that came from him after he swallowed a clock.
I’ve heard that the original Peter Pan story is actually sad so this film actually made it joyful while still keeping that sad, memorable part in the movie and now after Robin Williams has died, Peter Pan reminds me more of the film Hook that he starred in. This is a lovely story about imagination also remembering that you should make the most of it when you are kid which is why it is my number 8 and deserves an 8/10.
7. The Jungle Book (1967)
I actually don’t remember the first time that I watched this film but I do remember this. When I was young, my brother and I had Disney books. He had Aladdin and I had The Jungle Book. This book was the only one that I read when I was young. This is also the last film that Walt Disney ever produced before he died which shows that this is the last Disney movie with the ‘touch of magic’
This film is about a boy named Mowgli that gets brought up by wolves and when he grows up, they think that he should live with mankind because a fierce tiger called Shere Kahn is looking for him. Along the way, he meets a lot of different characters.
This film is great for me because it is a bond that I have with my Dad. We know the words to all the songs and sing along to it. The best scene in the movie is when the characters meet King Louis and they sing ‘I Wanna Be Like You’. It is the best song in the film (second best being The Bare Necessities) and has a lot of comedic moments.
As well as this film being fun, it also has sad, sentimental moments like almost every Disney movie out there.Overall, this is a great film to enjoy which is why it is my 7th favourite Disney film and deserves a 9/10.
Next time, I will be doing the reviews from 6 to 3. Feel free to leave comments below.
