Disney Animated Movie Challenge: Part III

And we back, back back, back again. I'm so excited for this section of Disney movies. These movies make me so happy that Disney created Disney+. I honestly don't know where else you could have the opportunity to watch classics like Cinderella and Peter Pan by just clicking a button. 

This section was such fun to find an inspiration for an outfit and I love how they turned out. AJ and I actually accidentally found this place when we were walking to another location in the West Village to shoot some photos. 

I hope y'all enjoy this section of reviews and let me know your favorite movie from the list below!

Cinderella (1950)

I've always loved this movie. I mean how can you go wrong with that dress transformation. My godmother calls herself my fairy godmother after a trip to NYC to see the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical of Cinderella, and this has created a great connection to this movie. I enjoyed going back to this movie, especially with the live-action Cinderella being on of my favorite films of the past few years. This is a classic fairytale story with classic Disney songs. 

Alice in Wonderland (1951)

After hearing the wonderful and talented Alan Rickman voice the caterpillar in the live action movie in 2010 (still can't bring myself to watch the second live action as it's Rickman's final movie before his death), I kinda heard his voice in the movie instead of the actual actor's voice. However, this movie is great to show how vivid our imaginations can be when we're dreaming,  especially as children. I couldn't believe how much I actually remembered from the movie, such as the songs the flowers sing, the un-birthday song and "I'm late! I'm late! For a very important date. No time to say 'Hello, Goodbye' I'm late, I'm late, I'm late!"

Peter Pan (1953)

What a classic movie of my childhood! I love this movie so much that when we got our first dog, I wanted to name her Wendy from the movie, but decided Nana was more fitting since that's the name of the Darling's dog. I even went through a Tinkerbell phase when the Pixie Hollow movies and games were coming out. What's been so great about going back and watching this movie is that there's actually a musical titled Finding Neverland, which is about J. M. Barrie finding the inspiration to create the world of Peter Pan. Captain Hook is one of the most comedic villains in the Disney franchise and I just love the interaction between him and the crocodile.

Lady and the Tramp (1955)

I'm a sucker for a Disney animal movie. This was a movie I loved as a child. I always loved the classic eating spaghetti scene with the song "Bella Notte." It was really cute to be in a dog's mind, especially when we realized that Lady thought that Jim's full name was Jim Dear because that's what she always heard him being referred to that. But also how cute is Lady as a puppy?? I'm obsessed with her.

Sleeping Beauty (1959)

This movie holds a special place in my heart as the song "Once Upon a Dream" is one of my dad's and my song when I was growing up. It also helps that the music is based off Tchaikovsky's ballet of the same name. Aurora is a unique princess because she is the princess with the fewest lines. I love this movie and will make it a point to try and watch it more often.

101 Dalmatians (1961)

Another animal movie! I loved how Pongo kept referring to Anita and Roger as his pets. This is definitely one that I haven't watched as much growing up, but I loved the animation style used in the film. The background looks like a sketch, but the characters are a bit more developed. I also feel like the cat in the movie is an underrated character in the film and I thought he was hilarious.

The Sword and the Stone (1963)

This movie was one of my brother's favorite Disney movie growing up so I had seen it a few times, even though it has been a while. I love that it's another movie based off of historical events and how Merlin kept referring to the twentieth century throughout the film. My favorite character in the film was Archimedes because he brought a lot of humor into the film. I had completely forgotten about the witch in the film and it was interesting to see her and realize that she was the villain in the move.
