It was around middle school that I stopped watching the new Disney animated movies. I was growing out of cartoons (yeah, look at me now) and frankly, wasn’t a huge fan of the animation style of the late 90s-early 2000s. The design was very geometric and boxy, and it looked like their movies from the early 80s, which, being a kid who can only like new stuff; how could I possibly suffer through something that looked so old. Yeah, I was a dumb kid.
