I love the cartoon, from a massive geek POV, it was the first time Disney started photocopying the animators actual drawings onto the cels so you get to see the actual drawing and not an inked version of it. It looks great... but its sad that they fired the whole inking department because they didnt need them any more.
There should be more hype for Sleeping Beauty! Ok, the story is a little bit sucky and ALL the main characters seem tos top talking half way through, but its the most beautiful film Disney ever made (101 dalmations a close and stylish 2nd!) Sleeping Beauty cost as much to make as Ben Hur! It sucks that Disney would never ever be willing to spend that ammount of money on making a film again and take that sort of risk, they play things way too safe now and they lean on really awful CG to make their money for them.
Fantasia 200 is stunning, and the background paintings from Hunchback are worth killing for.
I love all of the Pixar films, every last bloodyn one of them, but Disney paid for them, it didnt make them, and now its making the Princess and the Frog after firing all its 2d animators! I hate that they've made the new princess so generic though.
101 Dalmations is awesome, but not among my top-three favourite Disney movies. Sleeping Beauty, however, comes close to my top three.
Oh, and yeah, I dislike Disney's CGI animated films that have taken over the 2D traditional classics. However, Princess and the Frog is a classic 2D animated Disney film and is coming out soon! Yay!
Fantasia 2000 is great, but I still prefer the original Fantasia.
Pixar is great on its own, but they have nothing to do with the creation of the upcoming Disney Classic.
