The Disney Film Project Begins…

Quite the pompous title, huh? Well, I wasn’t sure what else to call this, but it’s a project that involves Disney films, so why not, right? The purpose of this blog is pretty simple: beginning on January 1, 2008, I plan to watch all of the films produced/directed/animated by Walter Elias Disney, in chronological order of their release, and blog about my experiences doing so right here.

So, from now until January 1, I will fill you in on what I’m doing to get ready (this isn’t as easy as you might think), some interesting tidbits I pick up in my research, and give you some more background as to why I’m doing this and what I hope to learn.

The basics are that I want to see if I can figure out more about Walt through his films, as well as some of the critics who use the term “Disneyfication” as a bad thing. Will living in Disney’s World for a year change my outlook on life? Who knows? You’ll be able to live it with me.

All in all, there are nearly 800 films, both shorts and features that were produced by Walt Disney. If I do this right, that’s an average of 2 a day. Of course, I know there will be days without a viewing, and some days I’ll have multiple viewings, so we’ll see where things shake out.

First things first, though, I have to organize the list. So, with the help of the Big Cartoon Database, I have a lot of films to locate. So, it’s off to work I go. Tomorrow, a little more about me, and how this whole thing came about. See you then.
