If Disney movies have you looking for anything but a wishing star, it’s your prince or princess and your best pal!
Whether you’re feeling a buddy-loving bromance, or a girl’s night in, Disney has a way of reminding its audience to appreciate friendships. D23 made a list of the best buddy pictures for your upcoming Pal-entine’s day. Here are my top 3 favorites:
Who doesn’t have great summer memories with their best friend?
Set on the beautiful Italian Riviera, Luca focuses on the tale of two young sea monsters posing as humans in the little seaside village of Portorosso. The boys, Luca (voice of Jacob Tremblay) and Alberto (voice of Jack Dylan Grazer), along with their new human friend, Guilia (voice of Emma Berman), make the most of their summer above the waves including Vespa rides and lots of gelato, while attempting to hide their true identities. This movie is chalk full of new experiences and fun adventures, just like every great friendship.
They say you never forget the friends you meet at camp. I suppose it doesn’t matter what kind of “camp” you attend, right?
D23 summarizes this live-action movie as the following:
After being sent away to a juvenile detention camp in the desert for a wrongful conviction, Stanley Yelnats (Shia LaBeouf) meets the teen actually responsible for the crime pinned on him, Hector Zeroni (Khleo Thomas). The two enlist on a mission to escape the detention center and unearth some secrets along the way. During their multi-day journey across the barren Texas desert, the two boys come to realize that this is not the first time their paths have crossed, as a centuries old curse has brought them together once more. Holes is a classic story about overcoming obstacles in order to bring truth to light.
College friends are… interesting… and there is arguably no duo more interesting than Oozma Kappa brothers Mike Wazowski and James P. Sullivan.
D23 summarizes this Pixar sequel as the following:
Not all friendships start out on the right foot, and Mike Wazowski (voice of Billy Crystal) and James P. “Sully” Sullivan are certainly no exception in this Monsters Inc. prequel. The two monsters are polar opposites, with Mike focused on his studies and Sully on his social life, but the two share the goal of becoming the top scarer in their class. Hijinks ensue and force the fraternity brothers to set their differences aside to achieve their dreams. Go Oozma Kappa!
