I love Tangled! And I don't see why they couldn't animate it the way they did. The laterns in particular give me chills whenever I watch it.

Me too. I actually had to purchase Tangled on dvd. I don't purchase a lot of dvds these days. For whatever reason a few weeks back Coldy decided he waned to see some Disney movies he either hadn't seen, or hadn't seen since childhood. I think we went through Pocahontas, The Little Mermaid and The Black Cauldron (which I hadn't ever seen). I then watched Beauty and the Beast and Aladdin in my own time. Coldy's sister still has my Lion King dvd. My favourite movie mad She's probably forgotten I lent it to her and I feel awkward pointing it out. WHAT DO I DO.

Something we should watch at some point is The Princess and the Frog. I like that the guy who is always making me watch weird sci-fi and silly action movies is actually able to sit through Disney stuff.

I'm just wondering, now that's Disney has finally done Rapunzel and the Snow Queen, what other fairy tales are left?  I can only think of Vasilissa the Beautiful (and other Baba Yaga tales) or East of the Sun and West of the Moon. 

They could try and make something original.

Hah. Hahahahaha.... Like that is ever going to happen again in film.

Although I guess Brave was supposed to be original, it still had the whole princess-type overcoming things, but then she didn't have to find a prince-type which was a nice change. So perhaps they should just refine their writing of original stories. Why don't we make now a good time for people in the future to look back to here and think "I want to tell these stories to my kids"?

That's why I enjoyed The Incredibles so much- it was an original story about an entire family working together throughout the plot instead of just one particular princess. The score to the movie was great, too- no plot-moving sing-a-longs just great music.

My daughter is almost two and is starting to realize that the TV is more than just background noise. The only Disney DVD we have is Sleeping Beauty (which I bought for myself back in college) but even when she was sick she didn't want to curl up and watch that. I played it anyway because I was sick and I did want to watch it.

I loved The Incredibles!  Got to see it in the cinema as part of a work celebration.

I wasn't expecting Disney to be exceeding (or even matching) Tangled in quality or all-round appeal any time soon so you can imagine my delight when I found with Frozen they had done just that. Oh me of little faith.

[Edit]
  Err, I seem to have forgotten about Wreck-it Ralph which I also really liked butů umů that just proves my point? Yeah, that it.

Random thought:  How does Elsa rate power-wise compared to the other ice/cold manipulating super heroes/villans out there?

I;m thinking of designing a set of Disney themed tarot cards, and the one i want to do is the Star since it will feature my favourite princess, Tiana.  The Star is typically a young female pouring fluid from a cup into a lake, whilst the stars twinkle overhead.  The Star is a card of perseverance, inner strength, hope and dreams, which I think perfectly describe Tiana: so she will be in her iconic lily pad dress, standing in the bayou and pouring a glass of wine into the water, whilst Evangeline twinkles overhead.

Hope people don't mind me bumping this, but anyone think Beauty and the Beast is really overrated? Nobody really seems to give Beauty and the Beast any slack. I think the songs are fairly weak in it, and The Little Mermaid might be superior

In all fairness, maybe I overexaggerated a little. I know music is personal taste, but the songs for me in Beauty and the Beast were not the highlight. I just haven't really heard anyone dislike it compared to the other three (The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, and The Lion King). I still like it, but not for the music at all really.

Looking forward to Zootopia. Disney has been doing better than Pixar for me, recently

I don't think Beauty and the Beast is overrated, no. The songs in The Little Mermaid may well be superior, but to me, that's a pretty good movie with some standout songs, while I find Beauty and the Beast to be a more cohesive and satisfying blend of story and song, and probably one of the best executed of Disney's fairy tale films.

You may have heard a larger amount of criticism for, say, The Lion King, but I get the impression that that's still the most popular of the Disney Renaissance films for many people (even with the relatively small sample size here, look at how high it ranked in the PEEL's Top 50 Animated Movies thread you made). Beauty and the Beast might not be everybody's favorite, sure, but I think it's quite solidly good and deserves whatever praise it gets.
