Cool Sh*t!!- Disney's 50 Animiated Pictures
Walt Disney Animation Studios has hit a milestone this past week with its 50th animated feature- a rework of the classic fairy tale Rapunzel which they've renamed to Tangled. To celebrate, Disney released a two minute clip counting up to its 50th feature beginning with the one that started it all, Snow White (I'm also celebrating- notice my new background image?). Watching this video gave me a warm fuzzy feeling when it ran across its early 90s films such as The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast and Lion King; it makes you remember how good Disney movies were at one point. The decade afterwards is a clear a picture how the studio lost sight of things with their jumble of random films that seem to have come from an array of different studios. Well now it looks like we'll never get those unique Disney magic films again because the studio has announced Tangled to be their last fairy tale feature in an attempt to go more mainstream (which probably means they're going to try to recreate Pixar-esq films). I guess I'll never get to see an animated Disney version of The Snow Queen now. Sucks.
