Disney was hoping that their The Chronicles of Narnia films would become their The Lord of the Rings franchise! Sadly, that plan went to pot after the second film was released in 2008! Was The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian THAT bad to warrant dropping the franchise? Read on to find out!

Yep, we’re doing this! As the purpose of this blog is to review every theatrically released live-action Disney film, I couldn’t skip the very first theatrically released live-action Disney film!

Wait, wasn’t THIS the first theatrically released live-action Disney film?

No, Treasure Island was the first Disney film to be ENTIRELY live-action! Song of the South was the first Disney film to have any sort of live-action in it!

Wait, weren’t THESE the first Disney films to have any sort of live-action in them?

Ok, technically The Reluctant Dragon and Victory Through Air Power preceded Song of the South, but I’m not reviewing documentaries for this blog and those two films are documentaries or at least have documentary-like elements. 

So, for all practical purposes of this blog, Song of the South is the first theatrically released live action Disney film! The film has a reputation for being insensitive/racist, hence it’s never been released in American on home video. Yet, the legacy of the film lives on with the Academy Award-winning song, Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah, still being sung today and the Disney theme park ride, Splash Mountain, incorporating scenes from the film!

I had seen the film years ago and found it to be more boring than racist myself. Thankfully, I was able to find a streaming version of the film to rewatch for this blog. Do I still find the film boring? Do I find it racist now? Do I find it to be neither? Read on to find out!

The Muppets never appeared in a theatrical film since the 1999 film, Muppets in Space. So when the news was released that the Muppets were gonna be in a new theatrical film in 2011, we were all super excited to see them again on the big screen! Did the film meet our expectations or was it a disappointment? Let’s find out via my review of The Muppets!

Can Peter Ustinov act in a bad film? Maybe so, but his performance is almost always amazingly enjoyable! Is this true of the 1968 Disney film, Blackbeard’s Ghost? Let’s find out!

I shall be taking a break on this blog for the rest of the year and will resume posting my reviews in January 2018. Until then, I decided to do something similar to what I do on my other blog, The Animation Commendation, wherein I give you a guys a look at the live-action Disney films set to be theatrically released next year!

But, keep in mind that these are only the live-action films that I will review for this blog, hence there will be no Star Wars or Marvel Studios-related films on this list. Also keep in mind that these dates are liable to change at any time! Enjoy!
