Disney has long been a movie powerhouse not only in America but all over the world. Even from its early days as a film studio. Disney has enjoyed borrowing from other nations’ fairy tales and legends, from Snow White to The Little Mermaid. The United Kingdom has been a major contributor to the company’s stock of stories. Both for live action and animated films from its early days to the present. With many wonderful Disney films over the years, it can be hard to pick only ten. If there’s one you feel was left out, feel free to share your own favourites in the comments.
The Great Mouse Detective
Disney’s own take on the Sherlock Holmes stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, 1986’s TGMD sees Holmes and Watson ex-spies Basil and Major Dawson up against the schemes of the evil Professor Ratigan, himself based on Professor Moriarty. For added effect, the pair of detectives even lives at 221 Baker Street. In a nod to one of the greatest Holmes actors, Basil Rathbone’s voice makes a cameo as Holmes.
