Favorite LIVE ACTION Disney movie?

Most people favorite Disney movies are the animated movies, and I cant blame anybody for that, BUT I want to know what everybody's favorite Live Action Disney movie is? Marry Poppins and Bedknobs and Broomsticks count because they are mostly live action, but WALL-E would not count haha

Technically.... The Avengers is a Disney movie... so I'm gonna say The Avengers!!!!!!!

But some may not count it... so ill go with Miracle. That was an amazing movie. With Pirates (The first one) and Mighty Ducks coming in second. Cant really choose one... lol. But if Avengers counts... thats it for me... lol

I personally don't count the Marvel movies as Disney because the current franchise began well before Marvel Entertainment was bought, but I'm not going to tell anyone else it doesn't count wink

Newsies is my favorite live action Disney movie. It was also my favorite of the Disney on Broadway shows that I've seen.

Newsies is BY FAR mine as well! I can't wait until the Broadway show goes on tour and comes to Minnesota.

We'll.... yes and no? he he he....

They bought it before Iron Man II came out I believe? But didn't get credit till Avengers. But I'm with you. It technically isn't a Disney movie. The Marvel Universe is a bit stretched among movie studios... so ill go with Miracle... heh

Yeah, I think that Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk were done before the merger and Captain America may have been the first one to be made completely under Disney? That would explain Alan Menken writing music for it.

Miracle is also SO good. May need to watch it to ease myself out of Olympics hype...

Ditto this, 100%! With saving up for the Disney trips, I won't be able to make the trek from MN to NY anytime soon so it needs to come HERE!

Needless to say, Newsies would be my answer, as well, with Pete's Dragon in second and Mary Poppins in third.

You guys will love the show! I've never seen two distinctly different versions of the same property that were both so wonderful in their own ways.

Original Parent Trap has always been my favorite. And there are countless others from that era as well. From the current era I would have to say Pirates would be my favorite.

I'll add one more - Pollyanna - I always cry when the whole town comes to visit Pollyanna when they hear about her fall.

I am so dating myself here but... Johnny Tremain was the first thing that popped into my head.

I actually have a Disney songbook with all the old songs from 1930-1970. I treasure it!

I love the old school Disney stuff! Shows and movies. I remember watching Zorro, Toby Tyler, and the original Mickey Mouse Club with my dad!

Summer Magic

Hot Lead & Cold Feet

Pete's Dragon

the first Pirates movie is my favorite of the franchise, but I can't quite count it as a live action Disney movie. It's like I closed the canon sometime in my childhood. Weird.

rolling Then I am in the same club, Kristen K!

But I also thought about That Darn Cat, The Computer Wore Tennis-shoes, Ugly Dachshund, Love-Bug, Darby O'Gill. . .

Darby O'Gill scared the crap out of me. My mother was Irish (first generation American), so she filled our heads with tales of the old sod and wee folk. She always said my grandfather was the 33rd cousin to the devil. She spoke with a slight brogue so when we saw this movie in the theater, it was like hearing my relatives.

The Herbie the Lovebug movies, Freaky Friday with Jodi Foster, the original Parent trap, bednobs and broomsticks, who framed Roger Rabbit, and the POTC movies.

Bed knobs and Broomsticks popped into my head immediately. I loved it, my kids loved it when they were little, too! Also have to include Pirates!

I would have to say that the Pirates of the Caribbean movies are my favourite modern movies, but if we're talking classics it's got to be One of our Dinosaurs is missing & the original Flubber.
