Okay so this is my first article. At least on here. I don’t usually write articles either. I usually either edit stories or write them myself (they never get done though). So this is completely new to me.
Sometimes the news going around the world can be interesting, but sometimes not so much. I don’t really like to read them that often myself. I mean, there are much more interesting topics to write about.
Since I love writing stories, I thought I’d write about something that has very much to do with stories.
Walt Disney Productions took century old stories and turned them into something visual. Something to watch. Something to sing along to in quite a few cases (best example: High School Musical).
We’re now in 2018 and Disney movies have been around for the past 81 years. It started off with Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs in 1937.
So I’ve decided to write my article about the Disney movies that came out in years that end in “8”. I’m not listing all, just a number of them.
So let’s start with 1988. One of my favorite Disney movies, Oliver & Company, came out that year on November 18th. I find myself singing “Why Should I Worry” at the most random times of the day.
In 1998 quite a few good ones came out. Mulan, The Parent Trap, Air Bud, and A Bug’s Life all made their debut.
I’ve got to say 2008 is the best year in this list though. With Hannah Montana: The Concert, Narnia (the second one), WALL-E, Beverly Hills Chihuahua, Bedtime Stories, and best of all: High School Musical 3: Senior Year!
This year, A Wrinkle in Time, Incredibles 2, and Christopher Robin have already come out, and there are still three more to come! The Nutcracker and the Four Realms hasn’t had as much media attention as Ralph Breaks the Internet with its famous scene of all the Disney princesses at a slumber party. Lastly, a sequel to Marry Poppins is finally coming out after 54 years. That’s longer than the differences between Finding Nemo and Finding Dory, Incredibles 1 and 2, as well as Mamma Mia 1 and 2 (I know those last two aren’t Disney) all added together (the total of those is 37).
As you can clearly see; I love Disney. I’ve passed the phase of being extremely obsessed, but I still scavenge for Disney pajamas and sweats in every store. It’s impossible to be too old for it. Obviously, there are some movies that I don’t love as much as I did when I was 6, but who could ever be too old for High School Musical?! I had an extreme HSM phase. Bedspreads, pajamas, tops, slippers, pens, notebooks, actual books, all the DVDs, and CDs. The bedspreads and clothes have left my collection, but the books and DVDs and CDs will forever remain in my possession. They’re too precious to let go.
If someone knows where to find HSM pajamas for someone who isn’t a little kid, please let me know!
Also, there are also Disney things that aren’t exactly suitable for toddlers to watch. For example, my current show that I’m binge-watching: Once Upon a Time. Disney stories twisted and shaken up a bit. It's amazing! I'm already at the end of season 5 and can't wait to finish it but at the same time I don't want to. Like every book and other TV show.
Back to binge-watching!
See you next time for another Decade of Disney!
