Disney Plus: 5 animated films to sing with your family – Cinema News

From “Lion King” to “Frozen”, AlloCiné’s editorial team offers you its selection of the 5 best animated films to sing on Disney + during confinement …

Walt Disney Animation Studios

BEAUTY AND THE BEAST (1991)

From 6 years old

We are at the beginning of the 90s. After a rather complicated period at the Disney animation studios, business is picking up, and with more enthusiasm than ever. At the dawn of a whole new golden age, the artists of the enchanted kingdom seem to have found their old cookbook, and are once again working to harmonize their major ingredients: a story of quality, impeccable animation , a pinch of magic, and above all … songs! The majority of the original soundtracks of the time are signed by a legendary duo: the composer Alan Menken and the lyricist Howard Ashman, who have already created the melodies of The Little Mermaid, manage to outdo themselves two years later with the eternal score of Beauty and the Beast. Awarded in 1992 with the Oscar for Best Music and for Best Original Song, the new feature film Disney is a veritable animated musical. Between Pretty, It’s party, Eternal History and Gaston, you have plenty to push the song by (re) discovering this absolute masterpiece.

THE JUNGLE BOOK (1967)

From 6 years old

Last Disney classic supervised by Uncle Walt (and released in theaters only a few months after his disappearance), The Jungle Book is a real musical nugget, a jazzy reinterpretation of the masterpiece of literature signed Rudyard Kipling where melodies and songs punctuate each stage of Mowgli’s journey. Reinventing their style and cadence with each animal the little man meets throughout the film, Terry Gilkyson and the legendary Sherman brothers simply sign one of the most legendary soundtracks in Disney history. Obviously, we will mainly remember the cult It takes little to be happy. But let’s not forget either the masterful Elephant Patrol, the irresistible Be a man like you, or That’s friendship, interpreted by four vultures whose Beatles inspired the looks (unfortunately refusing to lend them their voices).

QUEEN OF SNOWS (2013)

From 6 years old

No need to explain to you why music is a key element in Frozen, you who certainly must have stayed with Let It Go stuck in the head for a long time at the end of 2013. But beyond the usual joke on the planetary tube of Elsa, it is clear that the soundtrack signed by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez is of formidable quality. Extremely effective (the fact that the songs refuse to leave our mind once the film is finished is proof of this), both original and rooted in the Disney tradition, it literally changed the production of the film. Indeed, it is by listening to the famous Let it go, freshly written by the Lopez couple, that the director of Frozen decided to change its whole story, ultimately making Anna and Elsa two sisters.

KING LION (1994)

From 6 years old

From his first plan, from the first musical note of The History of Life, The Lion King stands out as an instant classic. Released 3 years later The beauty and the Beast (which we told you about earlier) and 2 years after Aladdin (whose excellent songs we also recommend to you), this feature film that some people consider today to be one of the biggest Disney movies ever made was nevertheless regarded as a “little film “during its production. A qualifier which he largely freed himself from his release, especially thanks to his masterful soundtrack. Hans Zimmer on the baton, Tim Rice for the lyrics, and a certain Elton John for the melodies. Enough to offer the king of the savannah the Oscar for Best Original Song and for Best Music, thus continuing the Disney tradition of the 90s.

VAIANA (2016)

From 6 years old

If you dream of traveling in song, to sail to the rhythm of Polynesian dances, to let yourself be lulled by the music of the Pacific Islands, we highly recommend this last film. A new animated heroine from the 2010s who has certainly not managed to match the dizzying score of her big sister (Snow Queen) at the box office, but which has nothing to envy in terms of quality. Beyond its phenomenal animation and its epic breath, Vaiana is above all a musical adventure whose songs were signed by Lin-Manuel Miranda, legend of Broadway. Between The Light Blue, The Explorer, For men, and of course the perfect Te Pate logo signed by Opetaia Foa’i, originally from the Samoa Islands, the 2016 Disney is a great musical vintage.
