Lady and the Tramp (2019)

When Disney+ launched in 2019, everyone was excited to finally have the entire Disney library at their fingertips.

Black Beauty (2020)

(If this is your first time on this blog, I ask you to read my About page first! Thanks!)

In 1877, Anna Sewell published her only novel, Black Beauty: His Grooms and Companions, the Autobiography of a Horse.

The novel would spawn multiple film adaptations with the most recent one being the 2020 Ashley Avis-directed film that debuted on Disney+. Is it a classic just like the novel it’s based on?
