Robin Hood (1973)


Disney’s take on the legendary story of Robin Hood, an outlaw who stole from the greedy king to give back to the poor over-taxed citizens of his kingdom, told through anthropomorphic animals. Having stolen the throne of his brother who had to leave his kingdom for an emergency, the greedy king decides to tax the citizens of the kingdom to the point of poverty. A childhood staple; this wondrous, whimsical and occasionally dark retelling of the famous tale is still funny after all these years. I found myself smiling at the same jokes and action sequences. This film is the definition of timeless.
