The Disney 50 at BFI Southbank

(November 23rd, 2010) BFI Southbank and The Walt Disney Company have launched a season offering audiences a very rare opportunity to enjoy the magic of Disney’s entire collection of animation feature films on the big screen.

Every weekend throughout 2011, the Disney heritage will be showcased, spanning seventy years of films that combine beautiful artistry, masterful storytelling and ground-breaking technology.

The season will launch with the UK premiere of Disney’s fiftieth animated feature film Tangled, a comedic re-imagining of the classic Brothers Grimm fairytale, Rapunzel. Tangled will screen in 3D on 16 January and will be followed by a special on-stage Q&A with the film’s directors Nathan Greno and Byron Howard.

The remaining 49 films will be shown in chronological order at BFI Southbank every weekend for the rest of the year, starting with Disney’s first animation feature, and the first ever animation feature in technicolour, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937). BFI Southbank will also host a range of on-stage events with Disney artists and directors past and present throughout the year.

    I still laugh at how Disney retroactively added “Dinosaur” to this list
