BFI Southbank to Screen All 50 Disney Animation Feature Films

Every weekend starting Jan. 16, 2011 with "Tangled"


LONDON -- BFI Southbank, the British Film Institute's home and flagship theater complex, has drawn up a unique year long deal with The Walt Disney Company to air Disney's entire stable of 50 animation feature films on the big screen during 2011.

Every weekend next year will see a Disney animated picture unspool from the old days of drawn animation to the current CGI 3D fair.

The Disney season at BFI Southbank unravels Jan. 16, 2011 with Tangled, Disney's 50th animation, billed as a comedic re-imagining of the classic Brothers Grimm fairytale Rapunzel.

Directed by Nathan Greno and Byron Howard, the BFI and Disney will host the movie and an on-stage Q&A with the directors.

The remaining 49 films, starting with Disney's first animation and the first-ever animation feature in Technicolor, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, will then be aired every weekend throughout next year.
