The Jungle Book (2016, dir. Jon Favreau)

A live-action/mocap/CG version of the Disney animation based on the Kipling stories. And pretty good it is too, with a stunning central performance and plenty of visual wonderment if you don’t mind a little uncanny valley in your family-friendly entertainment.

Moana (2016, dir. Ron Clements, John Musker, Don Hall, Chris Williams)

A Polynesian clan-leader’s daughter escapes her island home to prevent a terrible prophecy. Supremely confident quest narrative; a focused and involving animation with huge attention to story, action, and character detail. Recommended.

Peter Pan (1953, dir. Clyde Geronimo, Wilfred Jackson, Hamilton Luske & Jack Kinney)

Three children journey with Peter Pan to battle Captain Hook in Neverland. Okay minor Disney cartoon with one unfortunately dated song and dance sequence. A greatest-hits version of the story.

Zootropolis (AKA Zootopia) (2016, dir. Byron Howard & Rich Moore)

A rookie rabbit cop and a con-artist fox team up to solve a mystery. Excellent Disney ‘toon, with some smart gags and a progressive social message, let down only by slight over-length and an uninvolving resolution.

Big Hero 6 (2014, dir. Don Hall & Chris Williams)

A boy genius – and his personal care robot – battle the supervillain who’s stolen his invention. Slick, straightforward, and gorgeous to look at, this manga-influenced Disney ‘toon is a linear but fun ride, with some effective emotional moments.
