Hello Disney blogging community and welcome back for my third but technically the fourth instalment in the Disney Era Tag. This time we slowly move through the Dark Age of Disney when the studios didn’t really know where they were going after Walt’s death.
These films include:
- The Aristocats
- Robin Hood
- The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh
- The Rescuers
- The Great Mouse Detective
- Oliver and Company
- The Fox and the Hound
- The Black Cauldron.
Let’s dive in!
Any unseen films?
No. I’ve seen them all.
Favourite film of the era?
The Aristocats, but I also have to include all of my Disney childhood memories that are connected with The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh. My sister and I were obsessed with Winnie the Pooh, and whenever we went down to Ashdown Forest (the real Hundred Acre Wood), we would spend ages wandering round the shop because everything was Winnie the Pooh. It was paradise!
Least favourite film of the era?
The Black Cauldron. I’ve only seen it once and if it hadn’t been for Sky Movies Disney I wouldn’t have seen it at all. It never really appealed to me and I can’t connect with it in the same way as I can with other films.
Who is your favourite main character?
Winnie the Pooh. He’s really lovable and cares about all of his friends.
Who is your favourite villain?
Professor Rattigan. He’s voiced by the legend that is Vincent Price! But I also love Edgar. He’s another comical villain and I love that Madame Adelaide is completely clueless about his jealousy and villainous intentions.
Who is your favourite sidekick?
What is your favourite song?
Best of Friends from Fox and the Hound. It’s a good track, and I liked how it was integrated into Disneyland Paris’s Showtime Spectacular for the New Generation Festival because it’s not one of the most popular Disney songs.
What do you consider to be the most underrated film of the era?
The Great Mouse Detective. I love everything about it. It might not be a musical, but when I first watched it a few years ago it did captivate me. I was also in a Sherlock Holmes phase at the time so it was the perfect Disney film to watch.
What’s your favourite thing about the era?
A couple of these films really helped to kick start my love for Disney at an early age.
What do you least enjoy about this era?
I don’t think there is anything.
Thanks for reading, and have a brazzle dazzle day!
