ALICE IN WONDERLAND
Based on the 1865 book by Lewis Carroll, this is the classic Disney animated version of Alice's adventures as she follows a white rabbit into a 'Wonderland' of her own imagination. On her journey, she encounters the Mad Hatter, the Cheshire Cat, and a host of other beloved characters brought to life with the usual Disney zest. Combining stellar animation with upbeat songs such as 'I'm Late', ALICE IN WONDERLAND garnered an Academy Award nomination for Best Scoring of a Musical Picture.
Deceptively simple, beautiful, moving, and hilarious, DUMBO is often overlooked when considering Disney's greatest films because perhaps of its lack of extravagance, its brief running time, and its simple story. Baby elephant Jumbo Jr. is delivered by the stork to his elephant mother with much fanfare but soon receives a cold shoulder from the snobby female pachyderms and the rest of the circus due to his oversize ears. When his mother goes on a rampage in order to protect him from some snickering rubes, she winds up locked away. Dumbo is left without a friend in the world until the street-smart Timothy Mouse decides to become his manager and a telephone line full of delightful jive-talking crows convince him he can fly. Highlights include Dumbo accidentally getting drunk and experiencing the surreal musical sequence Pink Elephants on Parade and a soundtrack packed with such priceless songs as the Oscar-winning Baby Mine and the crow's soulful number, When I see an Elephant Fly. There's nary an imperfect moment to be found in this raucous, tender, sublime film, which has been delighting audiences for generations.
This Disney release presents the imaginative "animal" version of the Robin Hood legend. Fun and romance abound as the swashbuckling hero of Sherwood Forest (a fox), and his valiant sidekick (a bear) plot one daring adventure after another to outwit the greedy prince (a scraggly lion) and his partner (a snake) as they put the tax squeeze on the poor.
After he kills a bear, a young hunter named Kenai (Joaquin Phoenix) in prehistoric North America is turned into a bear himself and hunted by his own brother. The story then develops on the unfolding relationship between Kenai and an orphaned bear cub named Koda.
Disney's Tarzan follows the familiar story of a shipwrecked baby who is brought up by apes in Africa. With memorable music from Phil Collins, the story unfolds in typical Disney fashion and it guaranteed to keep the kids glued.
Dinosaurs are rought to life in this impressive animation. A Dinosaur Egg is whisked away. The kidnapped then egg grows into an iguanodon named Aladar (DB Sweeney) who is subsequently raised by lemurs on a beautiful island with no other dinosaurs. When a meteorite destroys their island home, the lemur family and Aladar join a dinosaur pack and roam the mainland deserts looking for the nesting grounds.
SWORD IN THE STONE
Based on TH White's novel The Once and Future King, this Disney version tells the story of King Arthur's adventures. Merlin the magician shows the young Arthur, known as Wart, the skills that he will need to become the future ruler of the Britons. Watch out for the sequences, where the boy is turned into a fish, a bird and a squirrel as they are classic Disney. The scene of Merlin battling it out with Madame Mim is also great fun.
BEDKNOBS AND BROOMSTICKS
This 1971 movie directed by Robert Stevenson has Angela Lansbury playing a good witch who uses her powers, aided by three children, against the Nazis in World War II. Lansbury, David Tomlinson and the late Roddy McDowall all do a great job and there are some clever sequences blending animation and live action, including a clever game of football between the kids and some cartoon animals.
Mulan is a classic entertaining film from the Disney animators. The story is based on a Chinese story about a young girl who disguises herself as a man to help her family and her country. When the Huns attack China, ther is a call to arms sent out to every village and Mulan's father, accepts the call.
