Last year, we wondered if Disney was experiencing a second Renaissance. With consistently great movies being released by the legendary studio over the last couple of years, it certainly seems like it’s the perfect time to be an animation fan. Since Disney bought Pixar and made Ed Catmull and John Lasseter the heads of Walt Disney Animation Studios back in 2006, the studio has released a string of movies that have been met with critical and commercial success. With so many great additions to the Disney Canon, we here at the Rotoscopers thought it would be fun to try and determine what the best one is!
Choosing your favorite Disney films is extremely difficult. There are so many that are irrevocably linked to your childhood. There are plenty that are the films you retreat to after a bad day. Disney is incredibly important to millions and millions of people. Saying a Disney Film is the best is basically impossible because nobody can truly be objective about these movies. But since we cherish these films as much as you do, we hope you like our attempt to decide which one is the Disney Revival Champion.
So over the next week, we’ll be posting a new article every day analyzing the modern Disney movies, starting with Meet the Robinsons and working our way until last year’s Big Hero 6. At the end of this series or articles, we’ll open up the voting so you, the readers, can choose the best film of the Disney Revival era. Each article will be written by a different writer who will share his or her views on what makes that specific movie so great. So make sure you come back every day to read the daily article!
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).
