LOOKING FOR ROMANCE:
50 FAVORITE ROMANTIC COUPLES
FROM DISNEY FILMS
Part 1 of 2
Through the years, Disney has given us many wonderful examples of love on the big screen, whether it was in animation or live action (or a combination of the two) or in features or shorts, from classic literary characters to its own cartoon stars.
So cue up your favorite Disney love songs (the characters' favorites are listed) or pop in the DVD (also noted, if available) and enjoy!
Who can resist the classic tale of a love that knows no class or cultural boundaries?
ESMERALDA and PHOEBUS
She is a beautiful gypsy who yearns to free her people from oppression. He, as Captain of the Guard, is a symbol of that oppression. Their passionate romance is complicated further by the tragic Quasimodo and the evil Frollo, both of whom also love Esmeralda.
ROBIN HOOD and MAID MARION
As children, they were sweethearts, and although the years have taken them down two very different paths (he "robs from the rich to give to the poorâ€?, she is the rich), their love, as the song states, "goes on and onâ€?.
FLIK and PRINCESS ATTA
A good example of nice guys finishing first: Flik, a lowly worker ant and would-be inventor, not only saves his colony from a swarm of greedy grasshoppers, he also wins the heart of the soon-to-be queen, Atta.
BERNARD and BIANCA
It must have seemed like any other day for the humble janitor of the Rescue Aid Society. Who knew that a mysterious message in a bottle would not only change his life, but also bring him the love of it in the form of the exotic Hungarian delegate, Miss Bianca? One question though, Bernard: why did it take you thirteen years to propose?
