We’ve all grown up watching Disney, whether you remember Bambi being your first Disney experience or you’re part of the Frozen crazed generation, everyone has a favourite and memorable Disney movie moment. And why shouldn’t they? Disney movies are not only timeless classics but also have a lot to teach us about diverse cultures and what it means to be human.
When Walt Disney laid the foundation for the magical studio that gave us iconic films such as Beauty And The Beast, Mulan and Fantasia, who would’ve thought it would grow to become this huge global cultural phenomenon with it’s own themed parks, dedicated fan following and merchandise? One thing is for certain, the world of Disney is not just about fantasy and magic but rather about spreading strong messages of family and love.
That’s why we’ve come up with 7 reasons why everyone should watch Disney movies!
They don’t discriminate on age, gender or ethnicity!
ANYONE and EVERYONE can enjoy a good Disney classic without feeling like they can’t relate because Disney films talk about concepts that are the same across borders and it’s all about bringing people together.
They leave you with a sense of wonder.
Even if you haven’t always had a strong sense of imagination, there is no need to despair since Disney movies have got you covered. From talking dragons to mythical lands, there is enough magic and sparkle for everyone.
They always have a happy ending!
In these scary times, sometimes all it takes to make it all better is to be given hope that things will get better and that is something that Disney movies are very good at! Yes, our heroes and heroines may face trials and conflicts but you know there’s a light at the end of the tunnel and a pot of gold waiting at the end of that rainbow.
You may just learn a valuable life lesson.
Disney movies are not just fun and games, but they always have a few morals and lessons to teach their audiences at the end. They also teach us how to be brave against all odds, how to put ourselves in another’s shoes and to ALWAYS do the right thing!
They can make you believe true love exists!
We know, we know, the older Disney movies made it seem like true love was the ultimate goal and pretty much glorified that above all else. And while love is not all a person is capable of, you have to admit that it is definitely a goal worth fighting for!
They teach you the importance of family.
This is perhaps one of the most important reasons why Disney movies are timeless and ever relevant. Ohana means family and family means no one gets left behind or forgotten. Enough said.
They become a memorable part of your childhood.
This one is a no-brainer because whether you like the old school movies or the newer, more exciting movies, Disney films become synonymous with being a little kind full of wonder and hope and we wouldn’t change it for the world!
