We all have grown up watching timeless Disney movies. Disney created magic on the screen with its beautiful stories, evergreen characters and lively visuals.
No matter what your age is or which country you belong to, the characters of Simba, Bambi, Dumbo and more will always be your favourites. While Disney movies are made for children, grown-up adults cannot stop going back to relive their childhood memories through these cult movies.
It is really hard to choose the best Disney animated movies. However, these are some most popular you can re-watch again and again!
1. The Lion King (1994)
The Lion King is perhaps the most successful Disney movie to date. Where to start? The characters, songs, stories and everything about this movie are praise-worthy. Remember the ‘Circle of Life’ song? It takes us on a nostalgic trip every time we hear it.
The famous phrase ‘Hakuna Matata’ is also from this Disney animated movie, meaning no worries for the rest of your days!
The plot of the story is simple and wholesome and revolves around the lion prince, Simba. He was supposed to become king one day, but his evil uncle, Scar, sent him away, blaming Simba for his father’s death.
However, Timon and Pumba soon save him and become great friends. While this film explores Simba’s destiny and his journey to fulfil it, it also teaches some great life lessons.
2. Beauty and the Beast (1991)
One of the best love stories Disney ever made is Beauty and the Beast. What makes this film great is that it teaches us to see through a person and fall in unconditional love just like the young princess did in this film!
It is a story of a young prince, Adam, who was turned into a monstrous beast by a curse of an enchantress. The only way to diminish the curse was to love a young maiden and make her fall in love with him too. As the story continues, it unravels a series of events.
In 2007, a modernised version of this film was also released, starring beautiful Emma Watson.
3. Zootopia (2016)
This not-so-old Disney animated movie is a movie you can thoroughly enjoy with the kids’ squad of your family! As the name suggests, Zootopia is a city full of animals of all kinds. Everyone got a place in this fun city, starting from the largest elephants to the smallest creatures.
Zootopia got praise for its clever humour, which made the humanised animals even more interesting. Likewise, the jokes throughout the movie also make it a fun show!
Such is the popularity of Zootopia that it is soon going to release a sequel in 2022!
4. Moana (2016)
Disney is known for its lively and realistic animation, and Moana only proves it right once again. It is a story of a little island girl, Moana, who is set on a perilous journey through the sea to fulfil a grave duty.
Moana began her journey with her pet cock. However, the sea was always in favour of her and guided her to complete her biggest quest in life. Disney movies always have been about looking beneath the surface as it imparts a valuable life lesson.
This film is also not an exception as it metaphorically shows how humans are exploiting nature for their selfish goals.
