Movie of the Week for March 15-21, 2021

As mentioned in my March 15, 2021 podcast, I’ve started a new “Movie of the Week” feature. I’ll be recommending a favorite movie with the hopes that it will be a film that you’ll enjoy, too. I’d love to chat online about each week’s film on my Instagram and Twitter feeds if you’re so inclined.

First up are actually two films, both from my all-time favorite movie studio, Walt Disney Animation Studios. I selected both the first feature length film from Disney Animation, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937), as well as their 59th animated feature length and most recent film, Raya and the Last Dragon (2021).

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs also happens to be an entry in the Turner Classic Movies (TCM) Must-See Musicals viewing guide which I am following this year, so it’s a double bonus.

Snow White is available on the Disney+ streaming service. Raya is currently playing in theaters and is available on Disney+ Premier Access (additional fee required).

Here are posters for the two films.
