Family movies have been the best time-pass activity for the entire family. Apart from giving the kids lifelong lessons, these offer an amazing opportunity to spend quality time together. So, now that we all are confined to our homes and quarantining, why not checkout the top three family movies of all times.
The Lion King
Remember the catchy tune of Hakuna Matata? Yeah…. that’s how we all remember The Lion King. Released in 1994, this movie perhaps is part of the most memorable moments of every 90s kid. At times endearing, sometimes heartbreaking but entertaining right through the end, The Lion King is a pure classic. The movie revolves around the life of a cub named Simba.
Disney’s The Lion King is a coming of age story of a lion that rises to power after losing his father Mufasa and learns to deal with life’s hardships on his own. We bet you would still be despising the evil uncle who wreaks havoc in young Simba’s life.
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone
Every kid dreams about a world full of fantasy inhabited by magicians but with Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone we actually got to visit one. Released in 2001, the movie is the first part of the Harry Potter franchise. Harry Potter took us all to a world of magic and excitement and we couldn’t come out of it for an entire decade.
The movie shows how an orphan Harry’s life takes a 360 degree turn after he discovers that he is actually a wizard and is going to attend the Hogwarts School for Witchcraft and Wizardry. From here on begins an extraordinary journey as Harry ultimately transforms into the greatest wizard in the world and gets to solve the mystery behind the death of his parents.
Whenever it is Christmas time and you are planning for a family trip, before stepping out, you would certainly stop and check if everyone has sat in the car. That’s the impact of Home Alone and it still lingers on even after three decades of its release.
The movie was released in 1990 and has become almost synonymous with Christmas and New Year time. As soon as December starts, we all are reminded of Kevin McCallister’s incredible wit, intellect, and presence of mind, as well as the whirlwind adventure that he experiences after being left all alone in the home.
Kevin’s family arrives in Paris to spend Christmas holidays but realize that they have left behind Kevin. Now that Kevin is in full control of the house, he feels like the king of the world, however, his excitement is short-lived as he is joined by two bandits looking to make the most of this opportunity.
So, there you have it, the top three best family movies of all times. Go grab that pack of popcorn and revisit these classics all over again with the whole family.
