If you were born in the 80s then you witnessed an era of Disney that can never be duplicated. From 1989 through 1995, it seemed like every animated movie released by Disney was an instant success. It all started with The Little Mermaid in 1989. It was a tale of a mermaid princess whose only wish was to be human and marry a prince. In 1991 Disney released Beauty and the Beast. In it, an ordinary town girl wanted more for her life, meanwhile, a prince needed to be saved by from the curse of an enchantress. With 1992 came Aladdin's tale of an Arabic orphan who wanted to marry a princess and 1994 brought The Lion King, which was about a lion cub prince whose uncle wanted his father's throne. They were all magical stories, with relatable characters.
They were the kind of movies that have stuck with the kids from that era straight into their 30's and will probably live on through many generations to come. Especially, when so many of those movies are being brought back to life as live action films now. Anyone can name these popular Disney movies, but you'd have to be an 80s baby to recognize all of the Disney movie characters that were in them. Can you?
