Disney films in order of age
They Drew as They Pleased: The Hidden Art of Disneys Golden Age by Didier GhezAs the Walt Disney Studio entered its first decade and embarked on some of the most ambitious animated films of the time, Disney hired a group of concept artists whose sole mission was to explore ideas and inspire their fellow animators. They Drew as They Pleased showcases four of these early pioneers and features artwork developed by them for the Disney shorts from the 1930s, including many unproduced projects, as well as for Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Pinocchio, and some early work for later features such as Alice in Wonderland and Peter Pan. Introducing new biographical material about the artists and including largely unpublished artwork from the depths of the Walt Disney Archives and the Disney Animation Research Library, this volume offers a window into the most inspiring work created by the best Disney artists during the studios early golden age.
They Drew as They Pleased is the first in what promises to be a revealing and fascinating series of books about Disneys largely unexamined concept artists, with six volumes spanning the decades between the 1930s and 1990s.

Disney Golden Age
Just the animation. And not including the many many straight-to-video releases. For the most part, straight-to-video sequels will be aimed at the same age that the original was. Age ratings are according to Commonsense Media , with the occasional intervention from me. Their ratings are good, if perhaps a little conservative, ie. Margaret White Apr 14, Kim Apr 14,
The Disney Golden Age refers to the beginning of the Disney Animated Canon when Walt Disney was still alive and all the films received critical acclaim despite struggles at the box office due to World War II and other problems. It is predicted that the era started when Disney made his first full-length animated feature, beginning with the film Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs in , and ending in with The Aristocats , which is also said to be the start of another era known as the Disney Dark Age. However, it should be noted, by animation historians, movie critics, and Disney fans, that The Aristocats is sometimes considered a part of the Disney Golden Age for a multitude of reasons. It was one of the last films Walt Disney worked on while he was still alive, the film was not only a critical and financially success, but is generally considered an iconic film. In , Walt Disney gathered several key staff members and announced his plans to make his first feature animated film, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. The production was dubbed "Disney's Folly" due to many doubting its success.

As a kid I always loved movies, and no movies did it quite for me like Disney movies did. Whether they were old or new, there was something about Disney movies that just spoke to me. The music the characters, the stories-- they all helped to shape some of my fondest childhood memories and are responsible for many of my interests and beliefs today. But what I always found most interesting is the history behind these films, how the time they came out influenced their themes and meanings. The history of Disney begins with the Silent Era. They worked out a deal with Winkler Productions to produce the Alice Comedies and eventually, in , moved their company to Hyperion Street, where it was renamed Walt Disney Studios. After the decline of the Alice Comedies, Walt created his first ever original character, Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, and produced 26 short comedies starring the character before a falling out with Charles Mintz, who had by taken over Winkler Productions.
