Our favourite Christmas Disney films are a varied bunch of animations, classics, favourite characters and traditional tales with a twist. Here they are:
The Santa Clause
Tim Allen stars as Scott Calvin, well-meaning but slightly inept, who accidentally finds himself shouldering the responsibilities of Father Christmas himself. Great fun.
The Muppet Christmas Carol
The classic tale of Ebenezer Scrooge and his ghostly visitors is re-told Muppet-Style, with Michael Caine playing a rather earnest yet tongue-in-cheek Scrooge. With Fozzie Bear, Kermit (as Bob Cratchit) and Miss Piggy lending their invaluable support to proceedings, this timeless tale is unforgettable, entertaining, and a real Christmas treat for everyone.
Beauty and the Beast: The Enchanted Christmas
Picking up where the original tale left off, this delightful sequel features an all-star cast of voices, and manages to fill in some of the Beast's back story. It has a great soundtrack, including some traditional Christmas carols, and is a lovely addition to the Beauty and the Beast story. If you're missing some Christmas spirit, watch this!
Winnie the Pooh: A Very Merry Christmas
Another classic character has his Christmas turn, writing letters to Father Christmas with his furry woodland friends. But when their letter is carried away in a gust of wind, it's up to Pooh to rescue Christmas and get everyone ready for the big New Year's Eve party too.
Mickey's Christmas Carol
Another re-telling of the Dickens classic, this animated tale is classic Disney with picture perfect animation. Scrooge McDuck plays Ebenezer Scrooge, perfect casting of course, with Goofy as the ghost of his deceased partner Jacob Marley, and Mickey Mouse as poor, put upon Bob Cratchit. This 1980s classic is perfect Disney and still looks great.
