True Love Shown on the Big Screen

The classic love story is best interpreted through Walt Disney’s feature films.

Disney at Its Best

Over the last 90 years, Disney has produced Beauty and the Beast (1991), Aladdin (1992), Pocahontas (1995), Mulan (1998) and many others. These features recognize true love through animated characters.

Disney’s thirty-first animated feature, Aladdin, is my personal favorite. Aladdin, a “street rat,” falls in love with Princess Jasmine and does whatever it takes to win her heart. A magic carpet ride ends the movie while “A Whole New World” plays. This film is truly romantic and is the ideal love story.


Enchanted (2007) is the modern day take on the Princess Collection from Walt Disney. The movie is a compilation of the Disney Princesses and the films they appear in. Enchanted represents a twist in the typical romance. The movie begins and ends with animation, but the main content of the film is featured in New York City. The prince follows his princess throughout the film and ends with a wedding.

Walt Disney’s animated features are cliché to a certain extent, but who does not enjoy a romantic story ending with “happily ever after”?

The Usual

The Notebook (2004) and A Walk to Remember (2002) are the assumed favorite romance movies of almost every American teenage girl. I find them to be semi-depressing. Yes, the main characters do find love and get married, but both films end in death.

I say, stick to Disney. The love stories are much more romantic than most.
