How many of you remember the first movie you ever saw in theaters? Anyone?
Well if you do, you are lucky. Because I know which movie I first saw in theaters, and it was also my first Disney movie (that I know of, unless mom had me watch a Disney movie at home, before I was two, without my knowledge. Sneaky.)
But though I know what my first Disney flick was, I don’t remember going to see it at all. But since I trust my mother on this one, seeing as her mind was much more developed in 1992 than mine was, we’ll go with her memory banks.
First ever Disney movie: Aladdin
According to reliable sources (aka mom & dad) my dad took me to see this, my first movie in a theater!
Come to think of it, maybe that’s why it’s still one of my favorites, and has my favorite Disney kiss, one of my favorite princesses…
Maybe why I have a thing for Disney thieves…
But I digress.
And I must give a nod to the first Disney movie I remember seeing in theaters, though of course by the time it came out, I was well into my career-level of Disney movie-watching, with dozens of rounds of Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, and Snow White under my belt.
First Disney Movie I remember seeing in theaters:
There were a lot of runs for more popcorn when we went to see this, that much I remember. And that’s about it, besides a vague recollection of sitting next to my mom and seeing lions and Zazu on the screen.
Of course, I’ve now seen this movie around 100 times (thanks, little sister!) and know the music and words by heart–thank you Elton John!
(*cough*Of course this is only his second-best animated musical… Dreamworks’ El Dorado was amazing, *cough cough*)
What was your first Disney movie? I’m always curious how some people got to adulthood, let alone ten, before ever seeing a Disney masterpiece. Whether you were itty-bitty, or not-so itty-bitty, I’d love to know what your first Disney experience was!
