As a way to kick off the club, I present this guide to the films of the 디즈니 Revival Era.
*Updated 03/03/18

There is no doubt that 디즈니 has been on a hot streak for the last few years, but discussions about which film started it all are common among 디즈니 팬 today. The following three films are sometimes considered part of the era, but this is subject to debate.

Meet the Robinsons (2007)
Walt 디즈니 애니메이션 Studio's 초 all-computer animated film Meet the Robinsons was released in 2007. It was something of a financial disappointment, but it fared a little better with critics and audiences than the studio's 이전 film.

Bolt (2008)
The following 년 saw the release of their third CG film, which opened to much greater success than its predecessor. Bolt, the first of their films under John Lasseter's guidance, grossed over $300 million worldwide and was generally well received.

The Princess and the Frog (2009)
디즈니 showed a return to form with this adaptation of the classic story The Frog Prince. The film is set in 1920's New Orleans, making it the first 디즈니 fairytale to be set in semi-contemporary times and to feature an African American female lead. The Princess and the Frog received mostly positive reviews, but did not draw in quite the numbers the studio hoped for. This has been attributed to the title, which is thought to have pushed away male audiences.

The following films are often considered to be films of the era.

Tangled (2010)
Tangled was the studio's biggest financial and critical success since the 디즈니 Renaissance, grossing $592 million worldwide and receiving an Academy Award nomination for best original song. This is one of the most expensive films ever made due to its 애니메이션 budget, which combines the CG style with traditional techniques and carried over to their future CG films.

Winnie the Pooh (2011)
Disney's last traditionally-animated movie (at least for now) was released the 다음 summer. It was liked 의해 critics but was only a modest success, likely due to heavy competition from other movies.

Wreck-It Ralph (2012)
Another fairly big success for Disney, Wreck-It Ralph grossed just over $471 million and was liked 의해 audiences and critics. It stands as one of their most successful original 영화 (i.e. not based off of a pre-existing story) and was nominated for the Academy Award for best animated feature.

Frozen (2013)
The massive success of Frozen was unprecedented. Although it was overexposed in media, the film was loved 의해 audiences and praised 의해 critics, and is well-known for its soundtrack. The movie is currently the most successful animated feature, grossing $1.2 billion and setting the record for most Blu-ray sales. It also gave Walt 디즈니 Animation's first win for the best animated feature Oscar, along with a win for best original song with "Let it Go."

Big Hero 6 (2014)
The studio followed up their massive hit with another successful computer-animated film. Based off of a lesser known Marvel comic, Big Hero 6 was, much like the former "CG giants," a financial and critical success, earning over $650 million worldwide and winning for best animated feature at the Academy Awards.

Zootopia (2016)
디즈니 saw another of their animated films reach one billion dollars at the box office with Zootopia, a contemporary anthropomorphic film that widely appealed to critics and audiences for its relevant social themes. It took 집 the best animated feature award at both the Golden Globes and the Academy Awards.

Moana (2016)
This 년 was one of the very few in Disney's history where two animated films were released. Their 초 entry of the year, Moana, was again met with positive reviews and financial success. The movie made about $643 million worldwide. It was also recognized at the Golden Globes and the Oscars, where it was nominated for best animated feature and best original song.

Below are the upcoming 디즈니 films. As of now, they can be thought to be part of this era, but only time will tell if they belong here 또는 if they are part of a new period in Disney's history.

Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2 (November 21, 2018)
Coming soon is one of the very few sequels in the Walt 디즈니 animated canon. Ralph Breaks the Internet will be their first sequel since Fantasia 2000.

Untitled 겨울왕국 sequel (November 27, 2019)
This was the first confirmed sequel of the Revival Era, and it is set to come out exactly six years after the original. The original directors and some of the voice cast are already known to be returning for the film.

One film has been shelved until further notice.

This musical adaptation of "Jack and the Beanstalk" was originally slated for a 2016 release, but swapped places with Moana, meaning a new 2018 release. Last year, the film was pushed back again to 2020 until 디즈니 announced that the film was shelved.

And there we have it! Now I'll leave off on this question: How should we decide which film begins the 디즈니 Revival era? Which movie do 당신 believe is the first and why? Any and all 코멘트 are welcome. Thank 당신 for reading!
