Revisit your favorite characters all over again on Disney+
As a kid, “The Lion King” was the first movie I got to see in a movie house. Of course, I was not able to get a full grasp of what was happening but as I revisited the movie over and over again, and each time I got a lesson that hit hard as I grew older.
Now that Disney+ is available in the country, it’s easier to access my all-time favorite movies. From iconic Walt Disney Animation Studio movies like “Beauty and the Beast” to Disney and Pixar’s “Toy Story” to the ever-fashionable Miranda Priestly of “The Devil Wears Prada,” you can now binge-watch movies and make them make sense even more.
Come walk down memory lane and discuss a few of the lines from Disney+ movies that hit harder now as an adult.
“Oh yes, the past can hurt. But the way I see it, you can either run from it, or learn from it.” – Rafiki, “The Lion King” (1994)
This could probably be one of the best life lessons from Rafiki. From getting over a heartache to moving forward from our loved ones who have hurt us, it’s up to us to either bury the hurt and try to forget the memories or dissect lessons and move on from it.
“Well there’s the usual things: flowers, chocolates… promises you don’t intend to keep.” – Cogsworth, “Beauty and the Beast” (1991)
This is a lesson for everyone who falls in love easily. A lot of pursuers would say anything just to get what they want. Cogsworth warns us that not everyone intends to keep grand promises and that we should be on the lookout for the ones who will and the ones who won’t. When you meet the right one, hold them dearly no matter how they look (case in point: Beast).
“You never forget kids like Emily or Andy, but they forget you.” – Jessie, “Toy Story 2” (1999)
As we grow older, we start to realize that not all people we meet in our lives will stay. That’s why it’s important to hold on to them while we can and even cherish the memories we have made with them.
“Do or do not. There is no try.” – Yoda, “Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back” (1980)
Here, Yoda reminds us that failure in life is inevitable. But failure should not stop us from trying because in trying, we also get to succeed.
“Don’t be ridiculous, Andrea. Everybody wants this.” – Miranda Priestly, “The Devil Wears Prada” (2006)
Some people would step on others’ toes just to get ahead. If achieving your dreams will be at the expense of others, how many people are you willing to drag down just for you to get an advantage? It’s important to ask yourself all the time: Is it worth it?
