Мулан is a lot of people's favorites. It's claim to fame is it's the first truly kick ass, heroic-equivalent-of-a-prince female character. But other than that, Мулан isn't anything special. It has the first chinese princess, but Мулан wasn't the first minority princess. It didn't help Дисней in anyway, it's Анимация wasn't spectacular, and it only has four songs.
"No significant milestone was hit with this film." (princesslullaby) 8.Aladdin
Not much еще impressive than Mulan. It's part of Disney's "fearsome foursome", it made a lot of money, and it helped continue the Renaissance. The Genie is often considered Robin William's best role. It also has the first princess to have a different Пение and voice actress. It's also the only Дисней princess movie where the princess isn't the main character. Other than that, no real significant things were sparked by Aladdin.
"Aladdin started the theme of having еще well known actors in the films, which continues to today." (hrrypttrfn328)
"I don't see how this movie is important. Sure, it made a lot of money, but other then that nothing pops into mind." (VGFan30) 7.Sleeping Beauty
Disney's 3rd Дисней Princess classic, this film was considered a breakthrough in Анимация for disney. The film holds a notable position in Дисней Анимация as the last Дисней feature to use hand-inked cels. It's got different sound system for the times, as well as the wide-screen breakthrough. It has Анимация drawn like a painting, instead of the usual cartoony style, something new for Disney. But the film itself was only received by critics with mixed reviews, which only allowed it to go so far in the countdown.
"Sleeping beauty was the first princess movie to figure out how to properly animate a prince" (mermaid-tail)
"Sleeping Beauty was the first one shot in widescreen and the first one using classic ballet Музыка and it is known as Disney's greatest artistic achievment" (dweeb) 6.Pocahontas
This film marked a point for Дисней as it was the first film to be based off of history, although obviously with this film we have to take that term lightly. And since then, Дисней hasn't made any classicly animated films based off actual history, making it the only film Дисней has made based off "fact". It was also the first Дисней Princess film not to have a happy ending, another first for Дисней trying to reach towards a еще adult crowd, as seen in the film after Pocahontas, "Hunchback of Notre Dame", which was еще successful in that respect. Other than that, the film was only considered mediocre and not all-too-special for Disney.
"[Pocahontas was] the first native American main character in a Дисней film. She also challenged racial prejudices, something which had not been done previously in Disney." (straggy)
"This one isn't really a milestone that much... yes, it's the first historical film, but the others have greater/more important milestones." (AllegroGiocoso) 5.The Princess and the Frog
This film marks the return for classic 2D for Дисней after a long time. It also has the first African American princess, although personally I don't see why that's such a big deal, seeing as that жасмин was the first Middle Eastern, Pocahontas the first Native American, and Мулан the first Chinese, and not a whole huge deal was made over them. But a bigger deal is that the financial and critical success of The Princess and the Frog has persuaded Дисней to greenlight at least one new hand-drawn animated feature to be released every two years, which certainly will make us all happy!
"PATF is very important, being the first with an African American princess as well as ushering back 2D Анимация to the studios." (kenzieiscool)
"Tiana is the fisrt black princess is not important to me at all I think people make a lot of fuss about that, yeah she is black so what, жасмин and pocahontas weren't white, Мулан is asian, so yeah I son't see whats so great about her being black" (luinwen) 4.Beauty and the Beast
Beauty and the Beast gave lots of success for Disney. First, it's the only classicly animated film to be nominated for an Academy Award for Best Picture. It is also often considered Disney's винная бутыль, magnum, магнум Opus. It is the first film to give a еще meaningful relationship between the prince and the princess, instead of the traditional Любовь at first sight. The ballroom scene was another breakthrough in Дисней Animation, being completely CGI. However, compared to the following three, Beauty and the Beast loses out.
"As much as I Любовь Beauty and the Beast, it is the least important out of these." (fhghu)
"It was the first animated film to be nominated for Best Film, and it won multiple awards." (firegirl1515) 3.The Little Mermaid
The Little Mermaid is a very important film to the Дисней Renaissance era. Дисней went back to broadway style Музыка in Oliver & Co, to test it out. They finally used it full-throttle in the Little Mermaid. The film was a huge success and kicked off what is known as Disney's "Renaissance Era." Without the Little Mermaid, we wouldn't have еще than half of the other Дисней Films. Also without the Little Mermaid, the company would have continued it's slump and likely gone bankrupt. Entertainment Magazine even called it an incredibly important film in animation.
"The Little Mermaid kicked off the Дисней Renaissance" (DreamyGal)
"TLM saved Дисней from not being able to make animated movies. If it weren't for TLM, there would be no BaTB, Aladdin, Mulan, and so much еще iconic movies!" (madisonavanna) 2.Cinderella
This one won by a smidge over the Little Mermaid. Золушка came out after a line of unsuccesful Дисней films, and helped saved Дисней from bankruptcy. Had Золушка not been successful, it would have probably caused Дисней to fail completely as a company, или at least caused them to have a much smaller budget for their Далее films. A lot was riding on Cinderella. It's also Walt Disney's Избранное Дисней movie.
"If Золушка had not been a success, the whole Дисней Company might have been out of cash, and thus, The Little Mermaid might have not even existed as a Дисней film since the company would have been gone. " (AllegroGiocoso)
" If Золушка failed, then it's likely that the other Фильмы would not be here " (Mongoose09) 1.Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
It feels almost alien to have Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs win first place, doesn't it? If it hadn't won for this, I think I would personally use my resuscitating powers (I didn't sell my soul for nothing) to bring Walt Дисней back to life and have him personally knock the living shit out of Ты guys. (....Just kidding! The powers I got from selling my soul don't include resuscitation. I suppose I should have thought that through). Anyway, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is THE FILM THAT STARTED IT ALL! Not only was it the first Дисней movie, it was the first full length animated film ever. Without it, we likely wouldn't have ANY animated films, или at least not until much later, and we certainly wouldn't have any Дисней films! SNOW WHITE AND THE SEVEN DWARFS DESERVES THIS SPOT AT NUMBER ONE!
"Anyway, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs was not only the first full length Дисней cartoon, but it was also the first full length cartoon in general, it started EVERYTHING!" (madisonavanna)
"Snow White was groundbreaking at the time it came out...plus it started it all!" (DreamyGal)
