Aladdin. I have never laughed out loud, uncontrollably, in a movie theatre like that before or since; even as an animated character, Robin Williams is (sometimes) a Genie-us (yuk yuk yuk). It was also the first Disney movie where I felt I could even come close to identifying with the protagonist (I've never seen the complete Jungle Book, and something about a child being left in the wilderness to be raised by animals just didn't work for me...don't ask me why a street urchin finding a magic lamp does). Even the fact that Jasmine is outspoken, street-wise and not a passive simpering damsel in distress...I think she even tries to deck Jafar at one point...made her likeable to me.
The Little Mermaid is my favorite. Also because it was the last Disney movie to use traditional cel animation, and for those of you who don't know the difference--it's drawing every scene by hand, then making the film without any CAPS. (Computer Animation Production System)
1. Pocahontas 2. The Jungle Book (film version, with Mowgli played by Jason Scott Lee - I never cared for the animated version). 3. Beauty and the Beast. 4.Atlantis The Lost Empire - animation, but with many realistic parts. Here, Back To The Future star Michael J. Fox is the voice behind the clumsy pillock Milo, who discovers Atlantis along with his team of wierdos, only to end up rescuing it from a greedy, money-loving Commander.
