Hello everyone and welcome back to my blog! Today is the fourth post in my Top Five Disney series. This is where I split the Disney films into their eras and rank them.
Odyssey splits Disney films into nine different eras, but two of these eras are before the company began making full-length feature films. However, the seven eras that follow those two match those detailed on Disney Avenue. These are the two websites I’m using as references when making these blogs.
The Bronze Age, which is actually also referred to as The Dark Age, was seen as the ‘decline of Disney’ from 1970 to 1988. The death of Walt Disney saddened not just the world, but the animators at the studio. The films produced after this death were The Aristocats (1970), Robin Hood (1973), The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh (1977), The Rescuers (1977), The Fox and the Hound (1981), The Black Cauldron (1985), The Great Mouse Detective (1986) and Oliver and company (1988).
So I’m going to pick my top five from that list!
Oliver and company (1988): I’m sure it’s obvious that I love Oliver and company. I wrote a blog post last year celebrating it’s 30th anniversary, I collect any merchandise available, and I just think it’s a wonderful adaptation of the classic Charles Dickens novel.
Robin Hood (1973): Coincidentally, this is my Dad’s favourite Disney film too. I grew up watching this at my Nan’s house, and I think it’s such a wonderful retelling of the classic story.
The Aristocats (1970): Naturellement, the Aristocats! I love this film. I love the characters, I love the storyline, and I especially love the music.
The Rescuers (1977): I love this for the same reasons I love the Aristocats, but my gosh it’s underrated!!
The Fox and the Hound (1981): I can’t watch this film without crying, but I do remember really loving it as a child.
