A lackluster slate could bring Walt Disney Animation that elusive first Oscar win
Director: Chris Buck, Jennifer Lee
Voice cast: Kristen Bell, Alan Tudyk, Josh Gad, Idina Menzel, Jonathan Groff
Pros: Disney's latest is already getting (I'd say surprisingly) glowing reviews that have gushed as far as to say it's a 20-year milestone. It taps a formula and takes a comparatively progressive step for the studio, the songs will stand out and it's the height of technology in the craft department.
Cons: For some it doesn't quite register even at the level of "Tangled," but it doesn't matter. This one is a sure-fire nominee and a likely winner. And by the way: that would make it the first win for Walt Disney Animation to date.
