disney has become synonymous with a huge wave of charming musicals that have stood the test of time. The Undisputed House of Magic and Fairy Tales may have had its ups and downs with their movie releases, but there’s no denying that the House of Mouse has contributed to the history of film and television during almost a century.

Starting with Snow White and the Seven Dwarfss in 1937, to the top of the Billboard Encanto, there is no shortage of brilliant musicals that have captured the hearts of many people around the world. While many people are generally familiar with the wildly popular musicals released during Disney’s acclaimed Renaissance era (1989-1999), there were several movies that received high praise during the company’s early years.

Covering a wide range of film genres, from buddy movies to romance, coming-of-age, comedy and drama, a ton of films released under Walt Disney Pictures and Walt Disney Animation Studios have become a staple of the movie theater. From animated classics to recent live-action adaptations, there’s plenty of variety when determining what to watch.
