  1. Only one I disagree with is “Lion King” being only for the fans

    • I’ll admit that was a tough one, but I felt there were other films that were better suited to the other sectors and The Lion King DID (and continues to) make gobs of money. So I reckoned it should count as the fan favourite 🙂

  2. True animation fans would consider The Lion King to be a ripoff of Jungle Emperor.

  3. I think a lot of animators would rather pick a Miyazaki film, even Totoro, better than Dick William´s one.

    • It’s a toss-up when it comes to that sector, but Williams’ animation in the film is highly regarded even if the overall finished product is mediocre at best.

  4. I might replace B&TB with the Iron Giant. The former made the kind of money that studio executives would be happy with. IG on the other hand is beloved by animators/fans but not executives since it was a financial flop.

    • Agreed. When I was looking over this yesterday, I realised it could be updated. For example, I would also replace Shrek with Frozen and rename ‘Fans’ to ‘Consumers.’
