Favorite Childhood Movies


Anna Wells, Journalist

We have all had a childhood even if we can’t remember all of what we did as kids. the one idea we seem to easily remember is our favorite childhood movies. Even if those movies seem cringy now, they’re still a part of us and it’s good to relive those memories. Some movies may have affected others more and some have the deep meaning as to why they were their favorite. 

“My favorite childhood movie was “How to Train Your Dragon”. I loved the concept of the movie, animation, the fact dragons existed and you could train them, […] the character development and glow-ups. It’s just an amazing movie and I love it to this day,” said Cecilia Brandau, junior.

Childhood memories keep our inner child alive. No matter how old we get, there is always a child in each one of us. Childhood memories shape our personality and future, and they remind us of the good times. But moreover, they remind us of past experiences and mistakes which help improve ourselves. 

“My favorite Childhood movie would have to be “Bolt”, the concept of the movie is cool, “bolt” is a deep dive into the meaning of evil and madness, […]it allowed me to see the lives of animals through their lens. I also really love the doggie,” said Grace Sesser, freshman.

Childhood memories shape our future. They don’t necessarily define us as a person but they play a great role. For instance, if we see a child getting ice cream or even swinging on a swing, we get happy because we have our childhood memories reminding us of the times associated with the things we get excited about.

“My favorite movie is Milo and Otis, I really liked this movie and animals. It had a very good storyline also,” said Starla Skiles, freshman.
