Important announcement to make: about twenty minutes ago, I finished watching The Princess and the Frog. That means that as of today I only have one more Disney film to watch before I reach that magic number of fifty. Tomorrow, I am going to go see Tangled with my little cousin, Amanda. I realize that we have only just reached the halfway marker as far as the blog entries go, but I assure you all that the writings are a coming and they will be a coming in a timely manner.
It's kind of crazy to think that I've managed to watch about seventy years worth of films in the space of four weeks. Needless to say, I've learned a lot more about Disney in these four weeks than I have in the twenty something years I've been watching Disney films. I literally can't wait to talk about some of these films because many of them are favorites of mine, and others I've gained new appreciation for as I viewed them this time around. But one... well, we'll get to that one when the time comes. For now though, I am glad that I managed to finish the forty-nine the same day that Disney released their fiftieth animated classic upon the world. It's a tremendous achievement, dreamed of by only the most fearless of dreamers. I have to wonder if Walt ever believed that what he began with a princess who accepted an apple from an old peddler woman would go on to create a legacy of films that would span the remainder of the twentieth century and beyond.
