Saturday Selects: Disney Classics

Saturday Selects is a series of posts I write that fall outside the general bookish theme of the blog. Today we’re talking movies.

In recent years Disney has released live-action versions of some of its most beloved animated classics. The Jungle Book. Cinderella. Etc. The trend is continuing very soon with the release of Beauty and the Beast.

I’ve seen people my age become excited for just about every remake they’ve done in recent years. I imagine there’s a feeling of nostalgia involved. Like what I’d feel if Rugrats was brought back. I haven’t shared in any of the excitement for these movies. Because I haven’t seen any of the originals. *runs*

That’s right. I know someone who is obsessed with Disney princesses and I couldn’t even talk about the plots of these movies. John Legend and Ariana Grande covered the theme song from the new Beauty and the Beast movie, so I listed to see if it’d bring back any memories. I’d never heard it before.

People talk about The Lion King online as if everyone knows Evert detail about it. But I don’t. I don’t know anything about it. I think a lion dies? I don’t know.

The point is I’m lost when it comes to Disney animated classics. Is there something EVERYONE seems to be familiar with that you just haven’t been exposed to?

  1. Lol, I’m familiar with the classics from 15-20 years ago, since my kids watched them but for the most part I couldn’t care less either.
    Folks talk about characters and songs, etc. from movies like Frozen and I just get this glazed look on my face and slip off into Never Never land for a bit.


    • Those movies from 15-20 years ago are the ones I was supposed to be watching as I grew up. But nope. And I’m a bit surprised when I see people my age getting overly excited for Jew animated movies like Frozen or Zootopia. I guess Disney just has people hooked.


      • *shrug*. My guys didn’t spend a lot of time watching television. It was more a rainy day or too early in the morning for Mom activity, lol, or to get my 18 month old to keep his glasses on his face :).
        Even now, they don’t spend a lot of time in front of the tube. They both have jobs, have a life, etc.
        My boyfriend, though, while he may not get excited over a new animated film, he makes sure he watches it, then relays the information to me, lol.
        It takes all kinds, I suppose.
