Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures
1. Beauty and the Beast
Admittedly this is an entirely biased list. The Oscar-winning (and Best Picture-nominated) 1991 animated tale has always been our favorite from Disney’s ’90s-era golden years, and they would have really had to muck it up to make the 2017 version bad.
Happily, having already been converted into a successful Broadway musical, it translated back to the screen really well, and the cast—Emma Watson, Dan Stevens, Luke Evans, Josh Gad, Ian McKellen, Emma Thompson and more—is top notch.
It probably helped that our memories weren’t clouded by trendy think pieces on whether or not Belle is the worst or whether Gaston wouldn’t have been the better pick. No need to relitigate our childhoods in that arena, thank you. It’s just a fairy tale, and it turns out just right.
