Hello! It’s Regan here, again. I’m comin’ atcha with Iggle Flicks movies for April.
This month’s theme being Animation, we decided to bring you two animated classics that were pivotal in the history of film animation. Using innovative animation techniques, both films were ground-breaking works at the times of their release. One is from the era of cel animation; the other is from the era of computer animation.
Now, without further ado, read on for our April movies.
Note: If you need a time zone converter for the Twitter watch-along dates, there is a handy online one, here.
Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937)
Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs was Disney’s first feature length animated film. Based on the fairy tale by the Brothers Grimm, it tells the tale of Snow White, a maid pursued by a jealous queen, who finds solace in a cottage in the woods that, to her surprise, is the home to seven dwarfs.

Toy Story (1995)
A cowboy doll called Woody (Tom Hanks) has always been Andy’s favourite toy, but that all changes when Andy’s parents buy him the hottest new action figure, a space-ranger called Buzz Lightyear (Tim Allen). Fueled with jealousy, Woody concocts a plan to rid himself of this newfound competition, but when those plans backfire, Woody and Buzz find themselves far from home and must find a way back.
In Pixar’s debut film, children’s toys are brought to life in this buddy-comedy adventure film that is celebrating its 15th anniversary this year.
