Decades of disney... number 5!
Let’s all thank Charlie and Kie for making this a series. There will only be 10 total, but at least it’s something.
I asked people to pick a number and five happened to be the first one said, so here we are! We’re doing Disney movies that end with a 5.
We're going to carry on this weekly article series in a random order, since we started with number 8. So here's the number 5's!
Today we’re starting with a famous spaghetti and meatball from 1955: Lady and the Tramp. That scene is a lot of fun to remake with friends. ;)
Twenty years later, Escape to Witch Mountain made its debut in 1975, the first of three. It was remade another 20 years later, 1995 which fits in with its same ending.
In 1985 The Black Cauldron came out starring Taran and Princess Eilowny.
Three great Disney movies came out in 1995. A Goofy Movie, Pocahontas, and Toy Story. All of them feature great songs. I mean, have you heard “Stand Out” and “Eye to Eye”. “Color of the Wind” is a classic and let’s not even get started on “You’ve Got a Friend in Me”
2005 brought us 5 more movies worth listing. First of all, Pooh’s Heffalump Movie. I mean it’s a purple elephant, what else must I say. Ice Princess reminds me of my own horrible blisters from any kind of new shoes. Ouchie. Next up is Herbie: Fully Loaded, the last installment of the Herbie series starring Lindsay Lohan. Chicken Little is all about how a chicken believes “the sky is falling!” and that the end is nearing. Last but not least, Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe came out. I mentioned the second installment in the last article and with any coincidence the third one will be up next.
In 2015 (just three years ago) the live remake of Cinderella came out, starring Lily James (who plays young Donna in Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again- and yes I know it isn’t Disney but I love it). Tomorrowland is kind of self explanatory, it’s about the land of the future, but it’s in the present. Up next is Inside Out a major hit, a sad one at that since Bing Bong died. The fourth and final film on our list from 2015, is The Good Dinosaur, and its 3 year anniversary is coming up in just over two months.
Today is a lot shorter, considering I don’t have an introductory ramble. So I’ll just to do a random fact ramble.
- Since today is all about the five, here’s a fact about 1955: The first Disneyland admission ticket was bought hat year for 1 US Dollar.
- Pluto is a Disney character, so let’s talk about Pluto, the planet. Did you know that an 11-year-old girl gave it its name? It takes 248 Earth years to orbit the sun. So nearly two and a half centuries here are equal to one year on Pluto.
- I know know I called Pluto a planet, but it’s not considered one anymore, and it never fully orbited the sun since its discovery before it was demoted to a dwarf planet.
