I saw Aladdin again recently. Still really like it. Saw both sequels, but I don't really remember them.

Yeah I really like Aladdin as well, not quite one of my top picks anymore but still a lot of fun. I do remember the other two films and the TV show fondly but been a long time so might just be childhood+nostalgia

Favorite Disney Movies:

1) The Sword in the Stone
2) Fantasia
3) Toy Story
4) The Black Cauldron
5) Monsters, Inc

I'm not much of a fan of the traditional Disney animated movies, with the exception of Fantasia (for being so different and making sure Paul Dukas is at least remembered for something) and the two movies based on the works of fantasy writers (T.H. White and Lloyd Alexander).

Otherwise, I prefer the Disney Pixar stuff, like Toy Story.

Saw something interesting that I would like to see - Disney animated a film for Indian-only release, called Arjun, based on parts of the Mahabharata (an ancient Indian epic written in Sanskrit). If I could track down subtitles I'd be interested in watching that, just because it treats a subject outside the usual suspects.

Also saw something where Disney is apparently working on a movie based on the Mexican day of the dead. They should totally make it a movie adaptation of Grim Fandango...

EDIT: Made a small correction - Lloyd Alexander, though heavily-influenced by Welsh mythology, was from Pennsylvania.

Never even heard of The Black Cauldron?

Have you seen Monsters University?

Based on the first two books of the Chronicles of Prydain by Lloyd Alexander.

Parts of it. Living with a 6-year-old in the house leads to catching bits and snippets of a lot of kid movies.

It's a decent film, not as good as the original but still worth watching!

The show was one of the ones a I watched often. Haven't seen it recently though.

I don't recall The Little Mermaid either.

I do remember a Jungle Book one, a Lion King one, a Tarzan one and lastly a Lilo and Stitch series!
