The Walt Disney Company is steadily becoming one of the strongest forces to reckon with in Hollywood. And it has always been a pioneer in animated movies ever since the time it came into being. One of the best phases of the company was in the 90s, when some of its greatest movies released on the big screen. The 90s were also the years when the period of renaissance dawned upon the Mouse House and a host of ‘different’ films were produced and released by the company. Here is the list of top Disney movies of the 90s (from 1990 to 1999). You can some of these best 90s Disney movies on Netflix, Hulu or Amazon Prime.
12. Pocahontas (1995)
A fictionalized account based on a true story, ‘Pocahontas’ was modeled after the titular Native American woman who belonged to the Powhatan tribe back in the 1600s. The two-time Academy winner told the story of how Pocahontas saved John Smith – the Captain of the ship that brought in English settlers to her secluded island; and who she had lost her heart to, despite being betrothed to Kocoum – the next chief in line. The Disney musical had voiceovers of Mel Gibson, Irene Bedard, Jim Cummings and Christian Bale to name a few, which was a little dark for the younger audiences, but was totally loved by elders.
11. A Goofy Movie (1995)
Released in the same year as ‘Pocahontas’, ‘A Goofy Movie’ was a musical dramedy, which became an instant hit right from the word go. Even the tagline of the film said – It’s hard to be cool if your dad is Goofy! The movie followed the (mis)adventures of Goofy and his teenage son Max, who Goofy unintentionally tries to control, thinking the adolescent might slowly drift apart from him. On a fishing trip, the duo spends some rather quality time together, getting to learn each other better, which forms the essence of the movie. The film was nominated for four Annie Awards and it also spawned a couple of DTV sequels, obviously loved by all!
