Which film from the Disney Revival Era do you think is the best? This was the question that led us to write about the last 8 movies Walt Animation Studios has released. Then you, the readers, voted. And now, after hundreds of votes, we have the results. And the winner is…
Yes! The marvelous Tangled, directed by Byron Howard and Nathan Greno, received 30.63% of the votes and was crowned as the Disney Revival Champion. In the article we published about the movie we mentioned how important this movie had been for the studio, bringing its most classic genre into the modern era with a story full of hilarious and likable characters, delightful music and gorgeous animation. Rapunzel and friends managed to take first place despite some strong competition from Frozen, who received 25.65% of the votes.
Last year’s Big Hero 6came in third, with 17.28% of voters proclaiming Disney’s most recent release as their best. The highly original Wreck-it-Ralphfollowed closely, gathering a respectable 15.18% of votes. Both these movies represent Modern Disney really well, since the studio seems to be alternating between Princess movies – still our favorite, it seems – and non-fairytale stories. As long as they keep up this level of storytelling, they won’t be getting any complaints.
Pablo Ruiz is a Colombian filmmaker. Movies like Toy Story, The Lion King and Aladdin made him fall in love with the art form and now he hopes to dedicate his life to telling stories, hopefully for Pixar (if they go back to doing original films).
Some of his ambitions are making a movie as emotionally impacting as Toy Story 3, meeting JK Rowling, and petting a million dogs. Follow him on Twitter (@PabloRV7).
