:werd: :werd:


It was the third of the 'great ages' in Disney as the critics called it. The so far three periods at which Disney was most influential and most highly regarded for its diverse selection of films :)

You had...

The Golden Age of Disney (1937-1942) - Snow White, Pinocchio, Fantasia, Dumbo, Bambi

The Silver Age of Disney (1950-1967) - Cinderella, Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan, Lady and the Tramp, Sleeping Beauty, 101 Dalmations, The Sword in the Stone, The Jungle Book

The Disney Renaissance (1989-1999) - The Little Mermaid, The Rescuers Down Under, Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, The Lion King, Pocahontas, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Hercules, Mulan, Tarzan

:D

That is hardly a merit. Shakespeare had no original plots, he just rewrote other stories.

There are no original stories. Everything is derivative.

I actually considered which of Disney's hand-drawn canon was an original story. I could think of Lilo and Stitch but that was about it... I do love that movie, mind you :3
