    Your favorite Disney Live Action Musical?

    Well come tomorrow, the next in Disney's line of theatrical live action musicals will be released. Since 1961, These musicals have provided there unique take on this film genre, applying Disney magic (both literally and figuratively speaking) to musicals for audiences to enjoy for many years. What's your favorite one? Here's the list of the ones so far:

    Babes in Toyland (1961)
    Summer Magic (1963)
    Mary Poppins (1964)
    The Happiest Millionaire (1967)
    The One and Only Genuine Original Family Band (1968)
    Bedknobs and Broomsticks (1971)
    Pete's Dragon (1977)
    Newsies (1992)
    High School Musical 3: Senior Year (2008)

    You could count Song of the South (1946) and So Dear to My Heart (1949) since they are both musical and predominantly live action but most Disney start counting with Babes in Toyland. Muppet Christmas Carol and Muppet treasure Island are both Disney released films but I don't like including them because they are Jim Henson productions. Enchanted for me doesn't have enough songs to be considered a full blown musical despite it's mainly brief musical moments. You may have your own interpretations on what is a Disney live action musical so be sure to include them in your response!

    Here's my ranking:

    1. Bedknobs and Broomsticks [25th Anniversary Edition]
    2. The Happiest Millionaire [Restored Roadshow Edition]
    3. Mary Poppins (although I don't listen to the songs as much as others)
    4. Newsies
    5. The One and Only Genuine Original Family Band
    6. Pete's Dragon
    7. Summer Magic
    8. Babes in Toyland (still fun though)
    I like The Happiest Millionaire. What's wrong with that?

    Mary Poppins is why I became a preschool teacher. I also really like Pete's Dragon.

    Re: Your favorite Disney Live Action Musical?

    My vote goes to Bedknobs and Broomsticks, that was my favorite film as a kid. Even though it's very long, I would watch it back to back over and over.

    Mary Poppins is my ultimate live-action musical favorite. Pete's Dragon is second. I adore Candle On The Water.
    Press today is so concerned with cool vs. not cool that they're starting to forget good vs. bad. I'm not sure I'll ever be "cool", but I will always tirelessly strive to be "great". - Josh Groban

    Am I the only one who thought Pete's Dragon was really really annoyingly bad? I did like that Candle on the Water song though... but I heard it prior to seeing the movie.
