Disney films for pre-schooler?

DD is 4 and adores Lady and the Tramp and likes Frozen but is quite a sensitive soul so I'm wondering which other Disney films would be suitable? She likes the music & old-fashioned feel of Lady & the Tramp, and the animals :) I was thinking Jungle Book and Aristocrats are fairly gentle? Any suggestions? Whatever she watches, her 18 month old sister also watches so it can't be too scary! (Sleeping Beauty scared the hell out of me as a kid!)

DS likes jungle book and Alice in wonderland. He's 2 and a half.

Ok Alice is a no go...tried it today and had to stop it after 2mins, she said Alice falling down the rabbit hole & saying goodbye to her cat scared her! And yet the snow monster in Frozen doesn't scare her!

Sorry Frazzled reading back I didn't mean that to sound accusatory! I already had Alice on DVD as I love it & have been desperate to show it to her....DH has decided the girl needs to Man Up!

Winnie the Pooh films are very gentle. From memory Emporer's New Groove is more silly than scary

CarcerDun · 25/06/2015 23:21

Robin Hood is a good one, not scary at all and animals. My 2.5yo loves it.

  • Emperor's

I would have thought most disney films would be fine for a pre schooler and her little sister. Dd3 is 4 and loves everything from Tangled and Nemo to Brave. I would just explain to her that these films always end up ok in the end!
Otherwise, what about Sofia the first - my dd loves that!

CarcerDun · 25/06/2015 23:42

No they are not... The Lion King gets quite distressing at one point.

ASettlerOfCatan · 03/07/2015 00:08

Don't watch up whatever you do. That makes me cry.... ditto lion king. My sensitive soul also sobbed her heart out over finding nemo.

Emperors new groove I LOVE.

My four-year-old DS adores The Aristocats 101 Dalmatians and Peter Pan, he can watch them all day long.

DrEdwardNigma · 03/07/2015 14:02

Oliver and company?

Threesoundslikealot · 03/07/2015 14:03

The Emperor's New Groove is one of my favourite films, and I'm 38. Nothing 'dark' in it at all - and certainly no dead parents.

33goingon64 · 03/07/2015 14:11

Mary Poppins. Planes and Planes 2. Toy Story 2 (1&3 are quite scary). Lion King (but fast fwd where the father is killed).

JassyRadlett · 03/07/2015 14:13

DS is a huge fan of Peter Pan.

Bellebella · 03/07/2015 14:19

My ds(2) loves Monsters Inc, Toy Story, Cinderella, finding nemo, Peter pan. Also Sofia the First is great for preschoolers as well as Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. Ds loves it and carries his Sofia doll everywhere.

I am a journalist who want to dig into how mums look at the influence made by disney movies, is anyone willing to help??

suddenlycupishalffull · 17/07/2015 14:21

Yep yep checklam, I'm up for that! I did try Aristocats and she loved that, the first two Despicable Me films sort of went over her head she was confused by the slapstick!
