Fan Favorite Movies as Disney Store Lithographs

Fan Favorite Bambi Close up

We all have our all time favorite Disney animated movie. I personally have several! So what is your fan favorite? Maybe it will be one of the seven Classic films depicted here in these lithographs from The Disney Store.

Let’s have a look at both the packaging and the actual prints from each film in the order they were released theatrically:

Fan Favorite Bambi Cover

Bambi 1942 – 5th Feature-length Film

This lithograph was released by The Disney Store in 1997 as a promotional giveaway when one preordered the film on video.

Bambi Meets the Rest of the Cast

Fan Favorite Bambi Back Cover

Back of Envelope

Next we visit Neverland:

Fan Favorite Peter Cover

Peter Pan 1953 – 14th Feature-length Film

This lithograph has one of the better envelopes for a single print release. Most will have a blank back cover, but this one gives us something more:

Fan Favorite Peter Hook

“Smeeeeeeeee!”

And now for the lithograph itself:

Again, this lithograph gives us a little something extra by having a beautiful map of Neverland on the back of the frame:

Next we go black and white, mostly:

Fan Favorite 101 Front Cover

101 Dalmatians 1961 – 17th Feature-length Film

This film has had more than one Disney Store lithograph release but I like this envelope the best of the two offered.

And now for a domestic scene we can all relate to:

TV Time!

And now we head into deepest darkest Africa:

Fan Favorite Jungle Cover

The Jungle Book 1967 – 19th Feature-length Film

I love Colonel Hathi and his Elephant Patrol! So this sleeve cover was a treat to see. But so was the lithograph:

Fan Favorite Jungle Lithograph

Just the Bare Necessities!

In my opinion, The Jungle Book was as perfect an animated movie as you could ever create! So I guess you could say this is my fan favorite.

Fan Favorite Jungle Back Cover

Released in 1997

Hard to believe that this lithograph was released 20 years ago! Now we have a live-action movie adaption of this classic. Have you seen it? I posted a review comparing the 1967 original with the new 2016 version. I picked a winner. Click on over to see which version it was!

We have three lithographs left as we now transition from the 60’s to the 70’s:

Fan Favorite Cats Cover

The Aristocats 1970 – 20th Feature-length Film

So this was released 26 years after the film had its theatrical release. I love the gray scale artwork for the cover sleeve.

Free Transportation

Fan Favorite Cats Back Cover

And now we leap from the 70’s all the way to the 90’s and into the middle of the Disney Renaissance:

Fan Favorite Aladdin Cover

Aladdin 1992 – 31st Feature-length Film

This was a concurrent release with the film in theaters. By now The Disney Store was releasing simpler versions of lithographs with basic cover sleeves. The lithographs were of slightly larger size however. With standard lithographs, you get an 11 x 14 overall size which includes the frame. With later lithographs, you now got an 11 x 14 picture with the frame adding extra size.

It’s a Whole New Hug!

We conclude with another 90’s hit:

Fan Favorite King Cover

The Lion King 1994 – 32nd Feature-length Film

This sleeve sports a pleasing pattern. And the lithograph:

Fan Favorite King Lithograph

Meeting of the Minds (Mash Banana)

This, like the Aladdin print, is oversized.

Fan Favorite King Back Cover

So which is your fan favorite? Do you like the prints small or larger? Do you think The Disney Store should always release lithographs with interesting cover sleeves, or does that not matter to you, as you’ll just throw them away anyway?
