A is for Animated Movies

Blogging from A-Z Challenge. I’m participating in the A-Z Challenge this month. I just decided to do it today so I hope I can organize myself enough to get through the alphabet.  There’s no telling what each new letter will bring around here so stay tuned 🙂

Gage will be 2 1/2 this month and his attention span is short, however, there is one thing that will keep him mostly engaged for a while.  It’s that big, green ogre we all know and love, Shrek.  I am not sure how many times we have seen the first and second movies and yet he never tires of them.  Shrek, Donkey and Cat (Puss) are his friends.  He doesn’t seem to care one way or the other about Fiona at this point.  As far as movies that can satisfy a toddler and parents at the same time this series is a good one, but I’m ready to branch out.  He saw and liked Ice Age, but Jason doesn’t care for it and I think a few viewings was enough for me.

I love the old Disney movies, The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King and I am looking forward to sharing them with him.  But aside from Wall-E, Finding Nemo, and Ratatouille I am woefully behind in the animated movie department.  What are some of the new ones that Gage, Jason, and I might all love?  And when you see an animated movie do you ever see it because of who is narrating the characters?

Oh, and please don’t recommend Bambi.  That movie made me so upset as a kid that I’m not sure I ever even saw the whole thing.  I won’t do that to Gage.  At least until he’s a teenager 🙂
