  5. It’s interesting to see the Disney films that premiered in February. Now they tend to hold animated movies for summer or Christmas or other big tentpole times. It’s kind of cool to see such classic films being released in an “off” season. It makes me think of a time when Hollywood was focused more on releasing films and a little less on “the market.”
