If you are a follower or someone who regularly visits my blog, you’ll know by now that I’m a lover of Disney & fairy tales. There is something about these two that makes me feel extremely happy. Today I want to share you more about myself, starting with my top 3 favorite Disney movies. I’m inspired to share this topic, because recently there is something we call ‘#DisneyJourney’ on Twitter. Me and some other girls are rewatching all the Disney movies and it’s hilarious to see everyone’s comments. Note: I also like Disney Pixar and other animation companies, like DreamWorks.
Disney is magical to me. There are powerful lines and the movies contain much wisdom in my opinion. I don't love every movie they have made. Snow White is my least favorite princess and I'm not a huge fan of Pinocchio, but they still mean something to me :)
1. Beauty and the beast.
SURPRISE, haha. This has always been my number 1 Disney movie. There are actually 3 different Beauty and the beast movies, but I'm talking about the real movie, not the spin-offs. The reason I love B&TB so much: Belle is a reader and she showed me that it’s okay to be ‘different.’ She was the strange one in her village and she didn’t really care about it. She is intelligent and kind. The whole message of this movie is wonderful. It’s refreshing to have a story where the girl saves the boy – and where there is no insta-love. + this movie has the BEST library. Plus, best quote ever:
For beauty is found within.
These two numbers changed over the years, but for now I'm going to settle with:
It was a tie between this one and number 3, but the thing that won me over is the sister-sister bond. The act of true love was so unique and new, I love what Disney did here. They managed to produce a heart-warming story filled with these catchy songs. How can you not melt during the ‘do you want to build a snow man’ song? Or sing out loud with ‘let it go’? And it’s awesome how they ridicule the whole love-at-first-sight.
I can say one thing: Flynn Rider! He must be Disney’s most adorable prince. I also really like Rapunzel and how they didn’t make her too naive. I mean, she hits him with a frying pan, you got to love this girl.
What I also like is how they made Mother Gothel look more human. She shows that over the years, she started to care for Rapunzel. When Rapunzel asks for the special paint for her birthday and Gothel goes on a far journey to get them. It made her a more realistic villain with a more complex story, instead of someone who is 100% evil.
Other movies I would name are: The little Mermaid, Mulan, Aladdin, Tinkerbell, Pooh and Treasure planet.
The list of future releases make me sad (HAVE TO WAIT SO LONG) and happy (SO MANY) at the same time. Disney has a very special place in my heart and I’m not ashamed about it. I honestly don’t care if people laugh at me or if they find it childish. Disney showed me things while growing up and I’ll never forget that. It's also the reason I have Disney trinkets scattered around my room. If there is something in your life you like and it makes you happy, you should not care about the opinion of others.
