The Disney 50

Disney's oldest movie (Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs) and its newest (Tangled).

After Tangled (2010) is released (in January for the UK and today for the US) Disney’s will have created 50 animated movies.  To celebrate, BFI Southbank has drawn up a special deal with the Walt Disney Company to air Disney’s entire collection of animated feature films.

The screenings—to be called The Disney 50—will begin 16 January 2011 when Tangled premieres in the UK.  The remaining 49 films will be shown in chronological order at BFI Southbank every weekend for the rest of the year, starting with Disney’s first animation feature, and the first ever animation feature in technicolour, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937).


Some of our favourite Disney films.

On 23rd January, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs will provide the theme for BFI Southbank’s Family Funday with competitions, prizes and activities.  From then on the screenings will include classics like Dumbo (1941), Cinderella (1950), Peter Pan (1953), Lady and the Tramp (1955) and One Hundred and One Dalmations (1961) and more recent films like The Little Mermaid (1989), Lilo and Stitch (2002), Bolt (2008) and The Princess and the Frog (2009).

This is a brilliant way to relive your childhood and to introduce this new generation to the films we all fell in love with.  The full list of The Disney 50 is available on BFI’s website.

We can’t wait for The Disney 50 to get kick off.  Which of the 50 is your favourite?
