The Lion King vs Lilo and Stitch: Yes, a lot of people consider The Lion King as the best Disney film. For me, there are a few problems with the film and I just can’t connect to the characters as well as I do with Lilo and Stitch. Both deals with family, but Lilo and Stitch simply does it better,
Tangled vs Frozen: I do enjoy Frozen, but Tangled simply has the better songs, music and art style.
Hercules vs The Little Mermaid: This one is easy, I think The Little Mermaid is okay but I can watch Hercules over and over again.
Mulan vs Beauty and the Beast: Both films do a fantastic job of dealing with feminism and family, but I just prefer the way that Beauty and the Beast deals with it. It is more relatable to me, having a book lover feel trapped and wanting more from life.
Up vs Toy Story: I need to re-watch Toy Story, as I don’t fully remember it and a lot of people consider it the best Pixar film. However, I connect more with the story of Up and the first eight minutes are the most emotional of any Pixar film.
Coco vs Toy Story 3: Just like the last battle, I don’t fully remember Toy Story 3 but Coco is a clear memory for me having seen it in cinemas this year.
Ratatouille vs Inside Out: Inside Out was the film that really got me back into Pixar films, and for that it gets a place in my heart that Ratatouille doesn’t have.
Monsters Inc vs The Incredibles: These may be my favourite two Pixar films, so this was a tough battle to face. The reason Monsters Inc won is due to the amount of times that I watched this when I was younger, and how much I love the story and characters.
Lilo and Stitch vs Tangled: This is when the battles get tough. The main reason Tangled won over Lilo and Stitch is due to the I See The Light moment. That moment alone makes me cry every time I watch it.
Hercules vs Beauty and the Beast: The best two soundtracks of any film, I truly do love both films. What edges Beauty and the Beast forward is the story. A beautiful story about true love and family wins my heart every time.
Up vs Coco: Coco is the film that is still on my mind months after I have seen it. Yes, Up has the saddest moments in any Pixar film. But, Coco to me is the most emotional film in terms of the family connections.
Inside Out vs Monsters Inc: Inside Out might have made me appreciate Pixar again, but Monsters Inc was the film that first made me love the Pixar company. It wins outright.
Tangled vs Beauty and the Beast: Beauty and the Beast is my favourite Disney film of all time. With the beautiful story, the incredible musical numbers and characters that you can’t help but fall in love with, it is truly the perfect animated film.
Coco vs Monsters Inc: Monsters Inc is my favourite Pixar film, due to the heart poured into it and the characters. I remember growing up with a Boo doll and loving it. Monsters Inc will always have a place in my heart.
Beauty and the Beast vs Monsters Inc: For me, Beauty and the Beast is the perfect animated film. If you look in my room, I have so many Beauty and the Beast items from plushies to musical boxes. The magic that lies within this film is beautiful and I don’t think there will ever come a Disney or Pixar film that will top the love that I have for Beauty and the Beast.
That is my ranking of the DIsney/Pixar bracket. I had some controversial opinions here and I would like to know what you think. Do you love Beauty and the Beast as much as me, or does another film stand out to you? Let me know in the comments, I always like to read your responses!
Until Wednesday, that was some film for thought.
