My Ranking of 2018's Disney Films

Hi lovelies, I'm back! While 2018 was not a good year for me (hence the blogging break!) it was a very good year for Disney with the release of 11 brand spankin' new films by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures! There was so many big, important releases in 2018 as well as a few lower-key but cute as heck films so I thought sharing a little ranking would be the perfect way to reflect. So from favourite to least-favourite, here are my thoughts on last year's Disney films:

1. Coco
Although this was a 2017 release for a lot of people, the UK didn't get Coco until 2018 but oh my goodness was it worth the wait! I just fell head over heels in love right from the opening sequence and it's one of those films that has stayed with me ever since. I don't think I can hear the words "remember me" in conversation now without wanting to burst into tears!

2. Mary Poppins Returns
Well I'm not going to lie, I spent the last 10 minutes of the film sobbing because of how magical it was! I was so nervous about seeing it but I really needn't have been! Emily Blunt and Lin-Manuel Miranda was just PRACTICALLY PERFECT in every way.

3. Black Panther
I found this one hardest to write about because where do you start with a film like Black Panther?! This film was like a bolt of lightning, it looked good from the trailer but the actual film, HOLY MOLY did it strike me back! I don't think anything I can say will do this film justice, you just need to see it for yourself!

4. Incredibles 2
For me Incredibles 2 had the exact same feel to it as the first film.It's the perfect sequel and oh so funny! Those 14 years were definitely worth the wait!

5. Solo: A Star Wars Story
This is another film I was a little apprehensive in seeing as I was a bit disappointed by the previous standalone Star Wars film, Rogue One, but I was very pleasantly surprised! I think it was such a great backstory for both Han Solo and Chewbacca and I thought Alden Ehrenreich was the perfect casting.

6. Ralph Breaks The Internet
Okay but THAT PRINCESS SCENE GUYS. Oh my goodness did Disney deliver on that! I think that single scene slayed the entire Disney fandom this year haha! Unfortunately I didn't enjoy the film as a whole as much as Wreck-It Ralph as I thought it went on a wee bit too long but it was still a very solid sequel and I had a lot of fun watching it.

7. The Nutcracker and the Four Realms
I wanted to love this film so much and while I enjoyed the imagery and character design (candy floss hair? UM YES) it seemed to get a little lost and confused at times. However I still thought it was a really cute and magical lil' watch and I can definitely see it becoming a Christmas tradition to watch this film every December!

8. Christopher Robin
What a dang wholesome film. This movie definitely had that heartwarming Winnie the Pooh feel to it - a perfect Sunday afternoon watch!

9. A Wrinkle In Time
Although this is far down on my list, I did really enjoy this film! It sadly was another one that got a little lost at times but it was filled with so much heart and adventure and there were so many great quotes in it too. Definitely worth a watch!

10. Avengers: Infinity War
I know, I KNOW. I'm sorry but I just wasn't a fan. It felt like a filler film to get the storyline from the previous films to the final film. And that ending... NOPE. I'm still very much a fan of the Avengers though so I'm looking forward to the last film this year!

You may notice that Ant-Man and the Wasp is missing from this list and that's because I'm running behind on a lot of my Marvel films I'm afraid - I've not even seen the first Ant-Man film yet! I've heard lots of good things about the both of them so I'm hoping to get to them soon.

Do you agree with my ranking? Let me know which 2018 Disney films you enjoyed the most!
