Five of the Best Live Action Disney Movies




Mary Poppins (1964)

This magical hybrid remains a true favourite amongst film lovers of all ages and is often considered Walt Disney’s greatest living triumph. The music, cast and visuals are all on point and its 13 Academy Award nominations were thoroughly deserved.

Bedknobs and Broomsticks (1971)

Beautifully and humorously blending live action with animation, this underrated gem is an ode to pure escapism, inviting kids and adults alike to get lost in a fantasy brimming with charm and character.

Flight of the Navigator (1986)

Original and wonderfully executed, Flight of the Navigator is everything an 80s sci-fi flick should be, which delighted families then and continues to offer an entertaining adventure for audiences today.

Honey, I Shrunk the Kids (1989)

Another 80s classic, this imaginative piece of filmmaking fuses the mundane; a suburban back yard, with the extraordinary; oversized objects, to create a fun filled romp certain to keep the kids engaged.

Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl (2003)

A riveting performance by Johnny Depp, a great comedic undertone and swashbuckling battles made Pirates one of Disney’s most successful forays into live action, spawning no less than five sequels.
