The above is my cat Kevin’s attempts at blogging! More on him tomorrow.
5: Mickey Mouse
Ah. We can’t forget one very important thing that Walt Disney himself said: It was all started by a mouse. Mickey has truly stood the test of time so well, he is without a doubt a pop culture icon! Created in 1928, two years from now will be his ninetieth birthday and I strongly that he will popular as ever when I’m ninety myself.
4: Winnie The Pooh
Pooh is that loveable teddy bear who is usually a nice memory from your childhood. ‘The end? Can’t we not just go back to page one, and start again?’ That line occupied me for hours on end as a kid. Based off of the author of his book A.A Milne’s son’s teddy bear, this fluffy yellow and red bear is the very picture of innocence and happiness, as is his home woods! That silly old bear.

7: Belle from Beauty And The Beast
Belle is inspiring in that she refuses Gaston’s attempts to get her to marry him and have six or seven sons, she doesn’t want to live up to his sexist expectations for women.
Another amazing thing is when she gives up her own freedom so the beast will let her father go, she’s willing to be a prisoner if it means her father is free, and that is huge.
She also ends up saving the beast at the end of the film, making me love her even more.
I think you’d be pressed to find a character more huggable than Baymax, created as a robot nurse by Hiro’s brother Tadashi he syas the most hilarious of things like ‘I am not fast’ and ‘hairy baby!’ and my personal favourite ‘oh no!’. I have a soft toy of Baymax and it is so cuddly!
Warning: This post contains spoilers, do not read if you have not watched the movie yet.
This review is also a personal opinion to a movie.
Frozen, the 21th century’s version of Beauty And The Beast. And while BATB may be more my cup of tea than Frozen, the latter is certainly a classic movie and after a mere two and a half years after its release, the fact that it’s regarded as a classic is a amazing feat.
The soundtrack to this film is a beauty, it made me want to visit Iceland (Where Frozen is set). There’s no mystery as to why Let It Go won an Oscar!
I enjoyed the fact that it showed that true love doesn’t always come from a prince, when Anna is freezing to death, her friend (and person she realizes she loves) Kristoff can save her with true love’s kiss, but then she sees her ex fiancée Hans Of The Southern Isles (Guy who seemed good but turned out to be a jerk) is about to kill her sister Elsa, she leaps in front of her sister, just before she freezes solid, Anna sacrifices herself for her sister.
That said, it’s not the first Disney movie to show girls they don’t need a man to save them, there’s Brave (she refused to be married to a prince) Mulan (She takes her father’s place in the army and ends up saving China) and BATB (Sure, the beast saves her from a pack of wolfs but she does save his life at the end of the movie)
It does however show a extremely accurate scene of a person waking up in the morning, I look identical to Anna in that beginning scene.
All in all, I’d give this movie four stars. Look out for my review on its short film spin off, Frozen Fever.
