All guilty pleasures are like marmite; people will either share their love for it, secretly or otherwise, or you’ll be judged negatively for enjoying it.
When it comes to entertainment, likely choices have been Love Island, the Kardashians or even Fifty Shades. Everyone has a guilty pleasure. If you want to know mine, it’s not exactly an unlikely choice and often involves sing along songs, fancy costumes and a little magic. That’s right, my guilty pleasure is Disney. You were bound to find out sooner or later, especially if you read my post about 1990s childhood films. Although I have to admit I don’t exactly feel guilty about it, but yes, Disney. Why do you ask? As if you had to.
Disney was the definition of my childhood. Colourful visuals combined with musical stylings, the traditional villain narratives, sometimes combined with a love story between the hero and a beautiful princess. Your typical run-of-the-mill fairytales that every child dreams of living. With Disney, there is something for everyone to enjoy. Not to mention the moral teachings that they share to inspire young children.
If you’re after particular favourites then I would have to say that to narrow it down to a few films is impossible. If you are able to single out one or two then you are not truly a Disney fan… I’m just kidding! If I had to pick one, it would be Beauty and the Beast. Nevertheless, Disney has something for everyone that we can relate to, dream of or wish upon a star.
If you have been living in a hole and not familiar with Disney films then shame on you. I prescribe to you a Disney movie marathon starting with the Disney classics in chronological order from Snow White and the seven Dwarfs to Moana. It sounds like a movie marathon to live for. Happy viewing!
