Not the rat — his name is Remy, obvs — but the movie. Ten years ago TODAY, on June 29, 2007, Ratatouille was just hitting theaters and we were rushing out to see what would become one of our absolute favorite Pixar movies.
But Ratatouille isn’t the only Disney movie celebrating its tenth birthday this year. Back in 2007, some of our favorite Disney and Disney Channel flicks were premiering in theaters and on our TV screens, and now that it’s 2017, they’re turning ten. TBH, we kind of want to throw a party for each and every one.
Let the celebrations start with Jump In!
The Corbin Bleu–Keke Palmer Disney Channel Original Movie premiered on January 12th, 2007. Corbin was a total breakout star in High School Musical, and we couldn’t wait to watch him in his own movie. And who could forget his single “Push It To The Limit” which he released for the film? We’re still singing along today!
In February, we met baby Josh Hutcherson in Bridge to Terabithia.
It wasn’t Josh’s first role, but it was the first time a lot of us met the hottie who’d go on to star in The Hunger Games. He and AnnaSophia Robb starred in the super sad film — and, TBH, we’re pretty sure nobody left the theater with a dry eye.
Johnny Kapahala: Back on Board premiered on June 8th.
The Johnny Tsunami sequel came a full eight years after the original movie came out in 1999. Hey, 10 years isn’t that much longer than eight years… think there’s any chance of making a trequel? Fingers crossed!
Ratatouille hit the theaters that same month.
And it was an instant Pixar classic. We still daydream about learning to cook in Paris — or at least eating some of Remy’s delicious recipes.
The Wildcats were back in full force on August 14 with High School Musical 2
The HSM crew just reunited last January to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the first movie, but we think it’s never too soon to get the gang back together! What do you say, guys? Ashley Tisdale and Vanessa Hudgens just recorded a cover together earlier this year — we bet they’d be down!
September gave us The Game Plan.
Things got spooky with Twitches Too around Halloween.
Was 2007 the year of sequels or what? We’re into it! The second Twitches movie, starring Tia and Tamara Mowry, came out on October 12 and made us all wish we had their magical powers.
Everything was Enchanted on November 21.
Our top favorite Disney movie from 2007 might just be Enchanted (okay, not counting HSM 2). Not only was it amazing — um, hello, those songs? — but it also totally turned all the other Disney princess movies on their head. And we figured out how to make a dress out of curtains. Pretty cool.
Happy Birthday, Disney movies! We’re making 10 wishes in your honor for 10 more amazing Disney movies to come.
