In recent years, the Walt Disney Company has benefited from a new, older demographic of fans.
Men and women of all ages have become huge fans of the brand.
The Walt Disney Company has a proven track record of producing hit movies.
Disney’s first ever full-length animated feature “Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs” jump-started the brand that eventually grew into the Disney we know today.
Recently, the Disney brand has changed to a modern look.
Disney had great success in their renaissance era, the late 1980s and 1990s, with movies such as “The Little Mermaid,” “Mulan,” “The Lion King” and more.
In the early 2000’s, we began to see less Walt Disney movies and more Disney-Pixar collaboration movies.
It wasn’t until 2009 when the Walt Disney Company began to see success on its own again.
Disney’s revival era began in 2009 with “The Princess and the Frog.”
Since then, the Walt Disney Company has produced new and advanced animated movies including “Tangled,” “Wreck-It Ralph,” “Frozen,” and today’s premiere of “Big Hero 6.”
After the success of the new Computer-Generated Imagery (CGI) animated movies, it has become mainstream or “cool” to love Disney movies.
Even though these movies are classified as children’s movies, people of all ages enjoy them.
“I think many people have become invested in Disney because there is still innocence behind it. The world we live in today has a more cruel nature, and I think Disney provides an escape from reality for many,” said Angela Garcia, 19.
Most college students are just starting to become adults.
Paying bills, moving out, getting student loans or simply having more responsibilities can overwhelm many young adults.
They are just starting to learn how to take care of themselves while being practical and responsible.
Disney movies offer comfort and escapism to the ever-changing world around us.
To feel like a child again, even for just 90 minutes, helps us momentarily forget about our problems.
