Some divers announcements of impending events:
Having hit the 1-year anniversary of Disneython ’09, which remains as I think the signature event in the life of this blog, I’ve decided that it’s a good moment to go back over the reviews I wrote at that time & spruce them up a bit – removing some of the clumsier language, correcting any grammatical or spelling errors, adding in images from the films as appropriate, and correcting outright factual mistakes as I find them. This will mostly be done invisibly and on no particular time-table, with this list marking my progress (note that my piece on Beauty and the Beast has already been revised), though for some films, primarily the earliest ones, I will be rather more substantially expanding my reviews, and this will be noted here on the blog.
But that ain’t all! Having the Disney-fire thus reignited within me, I’ve been inspired to go back through the annals of Walt Disney Feature Animation, this time visiting the hybrids and half-animated films that have borne the studio’s name throughout history (though not all of them are “equally” Disney, if you get my meaning). Those reviews will be coming out every Tuesday and Thursday, save Thanksgiving (that review shall be the Friday after), for the next four weeks.
And still more! In anticipation – though that’s not really at all the word – for the Thanksgiving release of Tangled, the 50th film in the Disney animated features canon, I’m going to plug the handful of holes in my coverage of that list, those four sorry, shabby little CGI animated features that the studio put out in the ’00s: Dinosaur, Chicken Little, Meet the Robinsons, and Bolt. Those reviews will be published on Saturdays and Sundays beginning 13 November.
