4 Favorite Recent Disney Releases

I'll be 32 in the fall and I still find myself watching old and new cartoons and family movies, even though I don't have any children of my own. I guess I'm still a kid at heart. I habit of switching over to the Disney Channel and watching a few of their kids’ shows. I thought I would take the time and write about my favorite recent Disney releases:

  1. Brave - I enjoy watching Pixar movies (except for the overrated Cars and the horrible sequel), but I wasn't a bit interested in Brave when I saw the advertisements for it. I had no plans on buying the movie, but I received it as a Christmas gift. The DVD rested on my coffee table for a few weeks and eventually I decided to watch it. To my surprise, I actually liked it. For a cartoon aimed toward kids, it has several dark themes and a few adult jokes. 
  2. Tangled - I'm not big fan of princess cartoons, but for some reason I wanted to watch Tangled and I ended up buying it. I'm actually surprised that Disney had never made a Rapunzel movie before now. The dialogue was cleverly written for both children and adults can enjoy together. There was a sequel short titled Tangled Ever After that I watched on Starz Demand a few months ago and it is just as funny as the movie. I hope that Disney will make a full-length sequel to it. 
  3. Wreck-It Ralph - I didn’t get a chance to see this in the theaters, but I watched it last night on DVD and it was better than I expected it to be. I grew up playing video games and even thought I don’t follow video games anymore, I still have respect for them. Wreck-It Ralph is not just for kids, it is for all gamers out there. I appreciated the cameos by Sonic the Hedgehog and Pac-Mac. There is a sequel in the works and I hope that Mario and Zelda will be in it. 
  4. Phineas & Ferb: The Perry Files: Animal Agents - I didn’t know this little show on the Disney Channel even existed until a few years ago when I accidentally came across it around 2:30 in the morning. At first I thought the animation style was a little silly, but after watching a few episodes, I learned that the show is actually funny. I was surprised to find out that the show has a big adult fan base, not just children. I bought the movie on DVD and the three television show’s releases (not including this one), but I don’t have the Christmas DVD. Maybe I’ll buy it on eBay or on Music Magpie at a low price. There is a new movie planned to air this summer that has Phineas & Ferb crossing over to the Marvel world, featuring Hulk, Iron Man and Thor. In my opinion, Phineas & Ferb is one of the unique and cleverly written cartoons on television today.

  1. I was like you in regards to Brave. The previews just never caught my attention. I have a 12 year old sister who didn't even want to go see it. One of my friends saw it and said she loved it. Apparently it's one of her all-time favorite Disney/Pixar movies. I still haven't seen it though haha.

    LOVED Tangled. I was kind of surprised that it took them that long to do a Rapunzel movie, too. It took me awhile before I actually watched it. I think it came on HBO Family one day when I was sick, so I figured I'd give it a shot. I was pleasantly surprised. Plus, the songs are catchy!
