Why They Rock

  1. The man named Walt Disney who was creating and producing the films from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs to The Jungle Book.
  2. Mickey Mouse, their mascot.
  3. The animation in their movies looks beautiful and unique, for both traditional animation and CGI.
  4. Great voice acting and beautiful music in most of their movies.
  5. The films that are great became successful, such as from their Renaissance films like The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, and The Lion King, the films from the Post-Renaissance "Experimental Era" like Lilo & Stitch, and most of their films from the Revival-era are great as well.
  6. Plenty of Easter eggs from the other Disney animated films.
  7. The villains in most of their movies are pretty entertaining.
  8. It became one of the most successful animated film companies to exist.
  9. Dinosaur was Disney's first traditionally animated movie with animated characters combined with real-life backgrounds, which should be done more often.

Bad Qualities

  1. While it was a good or decent studio, some of their films can be pretty weak, bad, or mediocre, such as Home on the Range, Chicken Little, Ralph Breaks the Internet, and of course the recent Raya and the Last Dragon.
    • Speaking of Home on the Range, that was the last Disney's traditionally-animated film until 2009, when The Princess and the Frog was released. Worse, after 2011's Winnie the Pooh underperformed at the box office, despite receiving positive reviews, Disney has killed off and canceled the traditional hand-drawn animation they used in their films for so many years, except as small supplements to their current CG efforts (such as Maui's tattoos in Moana), and hardly gave it full attention ever since.
  2. Some films are way too melodramatic in which they use a plot with tons of drama to tangle with your emotions. While it is a good idea on paper, it ends up becoming corny and inconsistent.
  3. Some of their films have bombed at the box-office, mostly due to poor marketing, such as Pinocchio, Fantasia, Bambi, and the list goes on.

I saw the 2011 Winnie the Pooh film on Disney+ and I like it. I think it ends the 2D animated Disney movie era on a high, but furthermore, positive note.

Even though I like this company, it keeps on milking franchises like Star Wars and Marvel
