Recently I mentioned watching the French film The Beauty and the Beast (directed by Jean Cocteau).
It seems wrong to mention this French-language classic with out mentioning the American-animated Classic with the same name. Developing a top 5 of Disney feature length animated films (excluding Pixar) is a challenge because some of them certainly have some amazing technological achievement while others have amazing entertainment value, and others hold symbols of childhood based on when they were first experienced, etc.
Yet, it's not a challenge in the least to chose a #1 Animated Disney film for me, because it is clearly Beauty and the Beast. The story, the music, the tone of the film (both fun and serious), make it a standout in my opinion.
4. The Lion King
2. Jungle Book
1. Beauty and the Beast
What's your top 5?
