    "This coming of age story is without a doubt one of my favorites by Disney. I love the music, the sweeping plains of Africa and the characters in the story. The voice work of Jeremy Irons, James Earl Jones and Robert Guillame bring this animated adventure to life and entertain me every time I watch it. The story is powerful, the characters are mesmerizing and the music has me humming for days after watching it. I will always enjoy this story."

    "As with all Disney animation this movie has held up over time, it's a great babysitter for your kids, giving them hours and hours of repeat entertainment (my kids have watched it 20 times). It has a great story too, you and your kids will enjoy it."


Did you know that the first Disney animated movie is Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs? According to History, Walt Disney, the creator of Disney movies has received numerous criticisms that the thought of having dwarfs in a movie would not be compatible with the storyline of Snow White. But Walt Disney, armed with his passion and creativity, took the risk and borrowed $1.5 million to still produce the film. The production of the film took three years, accomplishing nearly 2 million paintings from around 750 artists before it was completed and released in 1937. Snow White was since then known as the first Disney princess among Walt Disney's creation. To his surprise, it gained a lot of anticipation and applause from the star-studded crowd on its premiere. As to the dwarfs who were viewed in negative at first, received numerous appreciation from movie critics. The dwarfs were labeled as the greatest comedians of Disney movies. Other technicalities of the movie such as the color, sound, direction, and what not also gained appreciation from the viewers. Meanwhile, the other pioneer Disney movies subsequent to the making of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs are Pinocchio, Fantasia, Dumbo, Bambi, Saludos Amigos, The Three Caballeros, and Make Mine Music.

    "This is actually a pretty good movie for me - I watched it when I was a kid. I think the story, the characters, whether creepy or funny, make this movie really worth a watch. It has a lot of colorful scenes and lively characters from beginning to end. The Jungle Book is mostly seen a s a movie of self-discovery as the main character, Mowgli traverses the jungle to find a new home - meeting new friends along the way. "

    "Having sold back DVD's to amazon for pennies, I am not particularly fond of seeing items for sale used at 11.99 as I was unable to sell my own brand new DVD's back to amazon without a receipt so I had to trade them all in and got under 10.00 for over 200.00 worth of merchandise that was purchased new. Not a fan for personal reasons."

    "I think recency bias is playing a role in this one. You can't just discount all the greats from years ago: Lion King, Pocahontos, Little Mermaid, Snow White, Beauty and the Beast. Don't forget about those."
