1. What was your favorite Disney animated movie as a kid?
I could never get enough of Robin Hood. I was also quite fond of Peter Pan and Pinocchio; I had this funny infatuation with movies involving characters with feathered hats.
2. Parents’ favorite movie? (The one they would willingly watch with you, but you didn't really have to like)
Beats me. They would watch just about any Disney movie willingly with us. I remember my dad really liked Finding Nemo; he believed the movie wouldn’t be half as good without Dory. It’s a shame he won’t be able to see Finding Dory when it comes out.
3. The movies that you watch because they’re good but not your absolute favorite?
Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, and The Lion King all have great traits, but somehow I never got caught up in the hype like everyone else. Same thing with Frozen; I like it well enough, but I sure don’t flip my lid over it and I actually sort of cringe when “Let It Go” starts to play, especially when my little sister is around. Once she hears that song, she’s a lost cause.
4. Favorite live-action movie as a kid?
I always preferred the cartoons, but I did like Mary Poppins and The Parent Trap.
5. Favorite Disney TV show as a little kid?
The Adventures of the Gummi Bears (I had a huge crush on Gusto and was so disappointed that he wasn’t involved in more episodes), DuckTales, The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, Aladdin, The Little Mermaid (since we didn’t own the original movie, we settled for the series as “the next best thing,” and then when we did finally get the VHS tape, it was a very strange comparison), TaleSpin, and Chip ‘n Dale Rescue Rangers (one of the best intro songs, no questions asked).
6. Favorite song(s) as a kid?
I could never settle for just one.
7. Favorite character as a kid?
As a kid, I totally idolized Robin Hood, Peter Pan, Pinocchio, the Genie, Clopin, Gusto, and while I didn’t worship him, I always thought Lumiere was pretty cute.
8. Memory/memories of going to a Disney movie as a kid?
I remember going to see Toy Story with my whole family, and to see The Hunchback of Notre Dame with my mom and older sister. Details are kind of fuzzy.
9. Ever been to Disney world? Disneyland?
Never have; no idea if I ever will.
10. Favorite animated movie now?
It’s a toss-up between The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Fantasia, Tarzan, Tangled, Frozen, The Princess and the Frog, Pinocchio, Bambi, Bambi II, Sleeping Beauty, and Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.
11. Favorite live-action movie now?
I adore The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, although I will admit to a soft spot for Who Framed Roger Rabbit, which makes a lot more sense (and is a lot more hilarious) now that I’m older.
12. Favorite Disney show now (if any)?
I haven’t watched The Disney Channel for some time now, not since our cable got cut, and I don’t feel like I’m missing out.
13. Favorite movie that you will only watch because of the music?
Probably Pirates of the Caribbean. Amazing music, the actors are decent, but it’s just so doggone long and it kind of lost its charm after the third movie.
14. Favorite songs that you like listening to, not connected to the movie?
No idea what that’s supposed to mean.
15. The movie you have seen, but no one else has ever heard of?
I doubt there’s a Disney movie that at least a few other people don’t know about, but I feel The Hunchback of Notre Dame and The Great Mouse Detective are woefully underrated. Purists can say whatever they want, but I feel The Hunchback of Notre Dame was a brilliant move on Disney’s part (back when those guys had some guts), and The Great Mouse Detective is a very nice way to introduce kids to Sherlock Holmes.
16. Your favorite character now?
Tumnus, Anna, Merida, Rapunzel, Eugene, Maximus, Pinocchio, Jiminy Cricket, Clopin, Quasimodo, Tiana, Naveen, Doc, Mr. Smee, to name just a few.
17. Favorite Pixar movie(s)?
Brave. Monsters Inc. is also nice (and Monsters University was surprisingly good, too), and I feel Toy Story 2 is the best of the Toy Story franchise.
18. Favorite CGI Disney movie?
The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. ‘Nuff said.
19. How do you feel about Disney Channel?
It’s all but gone down the toilet. I miss the DC of my childhood days.
20. Movies you want to see come out?
While I’m hardly an advocate for the live-action remakes, I might check out Beauty and the Beast with Emma Watson. I think I’ll also watch Finding Dory in memory of my dad, who, as I said earlier, was a big fan. Zootopia might be worth something, too. And I’ll consider Moana, the first Polynesian princess. All of these are pretty big maybes; I’m extremely picky about what I watch and I’m usually wary of a movie until I’ve seen it for myself. I wish there were more 2-D movies coming out.
One movie I’m definitely stoked about (that has nothing to do with Disney) is Victor Frankenstein, because it features Daniel Radcliffe and James McAvoy. I like Daniel Radcliffe and everyone who knows me knows how I feel about James McAvoy!
