First of all are the villains. The reciente villains have been weak, and do not seem real so when the hero triumphs tu do not feel the need to cheer along with them. If the villain is más menacing she/he is like another villain from an older disney movie. Take the villain from Enchanted; she is on a quest to get the trono this is nothing new Ursula was trying to achieve the same goal. Her looks were like a más beautiful version of Snow Whites evil step mother, she uses magic and she turns into a dragon something that has already been used!
Next is the lack of songs. Yes they have songs but none the characters themselves sing, these songs are mostly for background noise o an odd out of place música number. There’s no songs that help the story along, giving tu looks into the characters feelings that in words would be awkward, like the song God Help the Outcast’s what if that had been Esmeralda speaking instead of singing?
Another thing is the animation. (If the movie is animated) The new disney animación has a very computerized look. This look does not compare to the look of old Disney, a más homely and hand drawn look. The new look in a way does not take tu into the story the way the old animación did, leaving tu watching but not as into the movie as tu could be.
Yet another thing to add to this lista is the focus disney has taken. The villains, as I mentioned above, have mellowed considerably, leaving something with the nametag of villain that tu can not be frightened by. disney seems to have mellowed to, wanting más jokes in their story and no frightening villains that might scare away their audience, young children. What happened to the first villains? I think Snow White was the scariest disney movie, why? Because of the villain that’s why! I do not remember having jokes in Aurora, what made it funny, if tu can call it that was the hadas bickering with each other and the joking song of Skumps! disney was once looking out at a large audience, trying to make the cine enjoyable for kids and adults now it seems that focus has narrowed.
Finally I come to the plot of the movies. The old and classic disney cine have plots taken from books, Beauty and the Beast, The Black Caldron, Aladdin, all taken from books. But lately disney has been trying to find new ideas on their own and I do not think that they are doing a good job at it. This is just something I noticed and may not be totally true.
So I have come to my conclusion, most new disney cine have a hollow shell of a villain, background noise that may be interesting, a clean computerized and perfect look that leaves tu behind, and a storyline that is only mildly interesting.
