Today I am starting a fun project that I’ve wanted to do for some time. In 2012 I watched the first 5 Disney animated films and it was a fascinating experience. Seeing films like Pinocchio and Fantasia back to back helped me to understand how bold a visionary Walt Disney really was. I could also see how the events and culture of the day figured into both the films creation and reception.
I’ve always loved Disney. In fact, as a child movies basically equaled Disney as 9/10 it was one of their films I was going to see. The only movies I remember seeing in the theater were Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast and Home Alone. I know there were many more but those stick out.
Animation has the ability to dazzle with it’s storytelling and be inspired by this project to be more creative myself. I also hope to learn something about each film and to perhaps reexamine some films I may have written off as a young adult.
This project will only include the Walt Disney Studio animated features. So, Disney Toons Studio (Such as Ducktales) is out. Pixar and Studio Ghibli is out but I will review Mary Poppins (but no other mixed live action/animation films). If there are any of those you would like me to review I can do that on my other blog or on my youtube channel.
So join in this journey and let’s have a magical time!
To give you an idea of where I am starting from this is a Disney tag I did a few weeks ago for my youtube channel smilingldsgirl.

I’ve set my self a challenge. Watch every number one film since 1960 before the end of the year
number one at box office or with critics?
At the box office because with critics you kind of know that it will be a good film but with audience it can be equally as bad or good. Hey, Star Wars the phantom menace was number one for 4 weeks
Sounds like a cool project! Will you be blogging about this?
Yes it will tie in with another project I’m doing where I review 700 films in one year.
