The list author says: "This is just a list of the Disney Animated Classics. I have left out some, noticeably the pacakge films released as promotional films for the US down in South America during World War II, . I acknowledge they are part of history but not quite the classics these other films are. So here we go"
"While Bambi was supposed to be Walt's second film, it wound up being released later and Pinocchio (a film with quite a few troubles itself) wound up filling the number 2 spot. Overlooked on initial release animators will tell you this is one of Walt's finest works"
"This is the last of the classic 5, after this World War II and an animators strike would upset the studio and through things off track. The films later return to greatness but there is something special about these 5, an innocence from a time where Walt just wanted to push the envelope"
"I foolishly bought the Un-Aniversary Edition DVD only for this Blu-ray to come out months later. I hesitantly bought it and am glad, there are new special features and the "Through the keyhole" feature is really like a commentary/documentary that plays over the entire film and the entire time discusses the inspirations for scenes and links to the book. Oh and it look great!"
"Peter Pan and Alice in Wonderland are two book titles that can be seen on the shelf at the beginning of Pinocchio. Walt had been planning since long before even that film to turn them into the masterpieces they eventually became"
"This will soon turn to Blu-ray when it is released as a Diamond Edition next year after Lion King. Until then I'll hold onto my Platinum DVD. This one well look amazing in high-def because just like Sleeping Beauty is was actually created in a wide screen ratio"
"After beginning the decade with another fairy tale Walt ended it with another fairy tale, Sleeping Beauty is arguably the most action filled of all his fairy tale adaptions possibly out of all Walt's films period. Glad to have this Blu-ray for now but I'll probably still upgrade when the Diamond Edition comes out in a few years"
"This film is different than many of Disney's others. It is one of the few to focus on a male human character without a large female role, it is also one of my least favorite from Walt's era. Still a classic but there is a reason it didnt make the Platinum or Diamond lines"
"The last film considered to be touched by Walt's magic touch, can't wait for it to be released on Diamond Blu-ray. This film, like Sword in the Stone this is a rare film focusing on a human male protagonist, this one I argue does it more effectively and is one of Disney's best despite a lower budget"
"This is possibly one of the most beautifully animted films off all time. This is Disney at their peak of classic animation, even to this day I would argue. Some story issues compared to previous 3 tho"
"Love this film. Many felt it formulatic and problematic. I see Disney testing themselves just as they had been doing since Mermaid. Trying to capture mature theme and present it to children, based on essence of historical events, animal sidekicks that don't talk"
"Another divisive film. I see this film as classic, Disney once again pushes the envelope. Here we have an adult story with adult themes set in real setting, real time period still suitable for kids. All that and a main character who is very imperfect"
"This one is debatable. It has beautiful animation but this film is probably the worst of the 90's. Music is unique and the first 90's film to attempt a unique design. I enjoy it but there is something missing where capturing the magic is concerned"
"The last classic film from the renaissance. This film is actually quite good in its execution. If anything the villain is what wasn't played strong enough in this film, the cheetah almost seems more impressive"
"A welcome return to classic animation. Odd that I hadn't realized classic animation had died off in the new millenium until this. Starts to get convoluted storywise towards the end - but it has the magic and animation of a classic"
"Yes I'm including it. Possibly unfairly since the songs were largely forgetable, story had some issues similar to Frog where it might have done better with a simpler plotline. Somewhat weak villain and side characters that accomplish very little. However, I enjoyed seeing computer animation in the form of a fairy tale, the computer animation might have been the most beautiful I've seen yet"
