Get to know me | Favorite childhood animation movies.
You already know I’m a huge Disney + Pixar fan and I shared my top 3 favorite Disney movies and 3 of my favorite forgotten Disney movies. I also talked about some of my favorite animations movies of all time, but today I want to specify the movies I watched over and over and over again when I was younger.
Movies I watched on repeat when I was younger:
The swan princess.
This is one of the movies people often see as a Disney movie, but it’s not. Odette and Derek dislike each other from the moment they meet, but then she is cursed and he is the one to break it. She turns into a swan at day and temporary back to herself in the night. She is feisty and I love the art and songs. There are three movies and I love them dearly (the first one is the best though)
Little Nemo: adventures in slumber land.
This movie always had a few scary moments. Nemo is invited in his dreams by the King of Dreamland to become a playmate for the Princess. The King gives Nemo his throne and a key that he can use to open every door in Dreamland; except for one. But Flip, a naughty new friend from Nemo, manage to persuade him to open the door anyway and this releases the Nightmare King.
The princess and the Goblin.
Princess Irene is left with Lootie, while her father is away to attend affairs of state, and she runs away. Irene gets lost in a forest and her kitten Turnip is seized by claws that burst through the earth. A song drives them away and that is how she meets Curdie. The Goblins are getting ready to seize power and Curdie and Irene are the only ones to stop this.
(Also not Disney!)
SHIP! Dimitri and his friend are two con men who want to find the ‘true Anastasia’ so they can deserve money. When they stumble on Anya, they think she resembles her close enough and they persuade her to go with them to reunite her with the Dowager Empress. Anya has no memory of her past and it swept away in their promises. Meanwhile, undead Rasputin is seeking Anastasia’s death. Beautiful song: Once upon a December.
A troll in central park.
Gus is a really bratty boy who slips away when his parents are too busy to take him to the park. His little sister Rosie, who adores her big brother, follows him. Rosie meets Stanley, a friendly troll with a green thumb that can grow all kinds of nature. He was exiled, because his gift is unwelcome in the dark troll world where the evil Queen Gnorga rules. I always loved Stanley.
(Yep, no Disney either)
Thumbelina is no bigger than her mother’s thumb and she feels alone, until she meets the Prince of the fairy’s. Thumbelina is kidnapped by a toad and when she tries to find a way home, she finally makes friends she always wanted.
The nutcracker prince.
Clara gets a nutcracker on Christmas from her Uncle Drosselmeier en he tells her a story about how the Nutcracker became the Prince of the dolls. But then everything happens in real life and Clara is trapped in the Nutcracker’s battle against the Mouse King.
Quest for Camelot.
Another ship. Kayley’s father, A Knight of the round table, is killed by Sir Ruber who steals Excalibur and threatens to seize Camelot from King Arthur. She teams up with a two-headed dragon and knight-aspirant Garrett to brave the Enchanted Forest and retrieve the magic sword. This movie is EVERYTHING.
