For a long time—through around the late-90s to the mid-00s, to be exact—Disney was on a downward spiral creatively (just as Pixar was making a name for itself with fresh, fun adventures). And this after releasing about a decade worth of award-winning films, from The Little Mermaid to The Lion King and so on. It wasn’t until they released the warm and fuzzy Bolt, that it seemed like Disney could still deliver what people expected from them. Of course, this was about the same time they gave Pixar head-honcho John Lasseter the reins to all of Disney animation, and so far, his influence has led to some exceptionally triumphant films (the exception being Planes, which wasn’t bad, per se, but it didn’t meet the standards I expect from the Mouse house), This, of course, includes their newest release, Frozen, which would certainly do Walt Disney proud. Don’t Stop — There’s Plenty More!
