I think I'm one of the first to do an article about my favorite DP Intros, but oh well, I hope you will enjoy this article and don't forget to leave a comment :)
I'm going to be honest here, but I really HATE this intro, it's probably my least favorite animated movie intro. It's so boring and it makes me wanna fall asleep, but this doesn't mean that I hate modern movie intros of course not, some are good, some are just boring. The thing I hate the most with the intro is the songs, especially "Steady As The Beating Drum", it's one of my least favorite animated movie songs. The only good thing about this intro is the animation and the storm sequence, it reminds me strongly of the storm scene in The Little Mermaid. The rest is just awful and I think that the intro is one of the main reasons to why I think this is not only my least favorite DP movie, but also one of my least favorite animated movies of all time.
I like the intro until that man on the camel starts talking, he's just making the intro more boring. But I do think this is a WAY better intro than the intro to Pocahontas because the intro song is a lot better, okay some of the lyrics are a bit weird, but the song sets a desert feeling. But yeah, I like this intro, but the others are just better.
The intro song is very beautiful and I like how it opens with a book and then a narrator tells the background story, but I find the intro to be a little bit boring at some points of it, but I can't blame this intro, it's such a sweet intro and I still like this intro.
I really like this intro, I like how it starts with Flynn telling the background story of Rapunzel, but I think this intro is a bit boring at some points, but I still like this intro, it's nice. I honestly wished that they had kept one of their original intro plans, they where both pretty good, but the final version is good.
6. Sleeping Beauty
Don't call me crazy, but I really like this intro. The music is fantastic, I like how it begins with "Once Upon A Dream", but I also like how there's some instrumental music in here. Again love how it begins with a book and a narrator that tells the story, but once again the intro is a little bit boring during the story telling part, but not very boring.
This is one of the few scenes I like in the movie, okay the small intro in the very beginning is a bit boring, but that scene where we see the huns climbing the Chinese Wall is very well done, it's such a different intro compared to the other DP movies and that's why I love that part so much and what a perfect way to get introduced to one of my favorite DP villains Shan-Yu.
4. The Princess and the Frog
This is my favorite scene in the movie, it's such a nice way to get introduced to Tiana and Charlotte. I love "Down In New Orleans", it's one of my favorite DP Intro Songs, really shows that New Orleans is the hometown for jazz and I like how during the song we see Tiana working in her café. The ending of it is funny because I love how Naveen looks like he's interested in Tiana, but Tiana isn't interested in him at all.
3. Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
From my favorite scene in the movie to my least favorite. well, I just think this intro is a little boring and there's no narrator that tells the story, that's why I love my childhood version better in this case because there's a narrator there. Other than that I really love this intro, the music has a fairytale feeling which I like and it isn't very boring.
2. Beauty and the Beast
I really love this intro, so beautiful and I love the narration, it really drags you into the movie. I also love the pictures shown during that, some of them are so gorgeous like that rose that the old woman holds and the enchantress. I also love how we first see a forest and a waterfall and the castle in a distance and then the castle comes closer and closer, really fantastic. Between this and my number 1 it was so hard to choose because they are both so good.
1. The Little Mermaid
I LOVE this intro, it's one of the most beautiful Disney Intros, the music is so beautiful and I love how it's underwater and my favorite animals are here dolphins. They're so cute and I think it's a little funny that they're one of the reasons to why this intro is my favorite DP intro, however my favorite Disney Intro is either Lady and the Tramp's or Bambi's I think, those are wonderful. But this is how a great intro should be like, simple and beautiful.
