What Was The First Disney Animated Film

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs In 1937, Walt Disney Animation Studios released its first fully animated feature film, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, pioneering a new form of family entertainment.

I don't know what to say about this one, because we all know what The Lion King is by now. If you don't, you are missing out. Considered by some as the King of Animations. People debate whether this or BATB is the best Disney animation. I personally prefer The Lion King, it has been my all time favorite for as long as I can remember. The idea of this film arose during production on Oliver and Company. At first called King of the Jungle it was meant to be a documentary/animated styled film with no dialog. That idea changed when they found out that lions don't live in forests, and a lot of people thought that The Lion King was going to be bad. So, most of the animators left to go work on Disney's next project Pocahontas as they thought it would have been more successful. The animators that stayed were amateurs, but they loved animals. It was an opportunity for them to show what they could do. As time went on the film developed into what it is today. People were astonished by how successful it became. The Lion King ended up being a way better film then Pocahontas. The film broke many records at the box office, as it starred a lot of big named stars like Jeremy Irons, Nathan Lane, James Earl Jones, Whoopi Goldberg, Cheech Marin, Madge Sinclair, Rowan Atkinson, Moira Kelly, and Matthew Broderick. The music by Hans Zimmer, Tim Rice, and Elton John was the best anybody heard. It was re-released in 2011 and has a rounded total of well over 900 million. Shattering BATB's record, and became the highest grossing hand-drawn film ever and still is today. It is the 4nd highest animation behind Toy Story 3, Minions, and Frozen. The Lion King is the 36th highest grossing film of all time.
