These are all my childhood movies. I spent my childhood growing up watching these amazing Disney movies. So lucky to be born in this era
It went downhill starting in 2000
The Disney Renaissance refers to an era beginning roughly in the late 1980s and ending around 2000, during which Walt Disney Animation Studios returned to making successful animated films mostly based on well-known stories, restoring public and critical interest in Disney.
The animated films released during this period include The Little Mermaid (1989), The Rescuers Down Under (1990), Beauty and the Beast (1991), Aladdin (1992), The Lion King (1994), Pocahontas (1995), The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1996), Hercules (1997), Mulan (1998), and Tarzan (1999).
Most of the films Disney released in this era were well-received, as in the film critic site Rotten Tomatoes, the first four - The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, and The Lion King have the best critical reception (with over 90% positive reviews)
Nine of the ten films in the Disney Renaissance were nominated for Academy Awards. The only exception was The Rescuers Down Under in 1990.
The Little Mermaid (1989)
The Rescuers Down Under (1990)
Beauty and the Beast (1991)
