15 Disney movies will turn 15 in 2022
We start our list with the very first Disney princess, Cinderella! The third film of the trilogy, Cinderella III: A twist in time, officially turned 15 in February of this year. Cinderella and her prince also celebrate a special day in the film.
On their first birthday, Lady Tremaine gets her hands on the Fairy Godmother’s wand. She uses her power to reverse time and makes the glass slipper fit Anastasia instead. The prince has no memory of his princess and thinks the “perfect girl” is his half-sister.
The story of this film was much more interesting than the second sequel. Even as an adult, I love watching it. The mother-in-law still gives me goosebumps!
Meet the Robinsons
Speaking of time travel, Meet the Robinsons takes us to the future. The film follows Lewis, a 12-year-old orphan and inventor, who is desperate to be adopted. Wilbur Robinson, a young time traveler, shows up and takes Lewis on his time machine. In typical Disney movie fashion, the film touches your heart while telling a great story. The good thing is that there are also jokes for adults.
Patton Oswalt lends his voice to play Remy, a rat who dreams of becoming a master chef despite being a rodent-phobic profession. He settles in the enchanting city of Paris to pursue his dream. He gets help from the trash boy Linguini and ends up proving his cooking skills to a food critic.
No matter how many times you watch this movie, you’ll enjoy it every time! Following your dreams, no matter what (or however small), is such an important message. If you put your mind to it, you can do it.
Pixar‘s story does not take place in a fictional world. It’s actually a documentary film. We get a behind-the-scenes look at Pixar’s success that produced some of my favorite Disney movies. I’m sure many of you are in the same boat! Although the studio has grown considerably since 2007, it is still interesting to watch. I’m a bit of a nerd at heart, so I love picking up bits and pieces and learning how companies like this succeed.
The documentary tells the story of the pioneering computer animation studio and features Pixar bosses as well as actors who have lent their voices to its films, including Tom Hanks, Tim Allen and Billy Crystal.
Bridge to Terabithia
If there’s one movie on this list that honestly wasn’t at the forefront of my mind, it’s Bridge to Terabithia. But that’s such a shame because it was actually one of my favorites growing up. Before they became the well-known actors they are today, the movie had a great cast. You can watch a young AnnaSophia Robb, Josh Hutcherson and Bailee Madison in the film. new girlZooey Deschanel also stars.
Bridge to Terabithia focuses on 11-year-old Jesse. His life changes when he befriends Leslie, the class underdog. The two children create an imaginary world called Terabithia, which is inhabited by magical creatures. Terabithia a way for them to deal with the difficulties of their realities. It’s a wonderful story with child actors at the time that we all recognize now!
Although it’s a Walt Disney Pictures movie, it’s the only movie on our list that isn’t streaming on Disney Plus. It’s available to rent for $3.99 on Sling.
