Post The Disney Movie
I don't know if this has been talked about before, but how do you think the Disney movie went? I loooooove it so much better than the original (with the exception of Carol Burnette - <3). What do you guys think?

I hate the original. Although it's performances were better, it butchered the show by cutting several songs. I don't prefer the Disney version, but I voted for it because it is more similar (yet still very different) from the Broadway version. I also like the Disney version for its faster pace. But I like the old movie for it's cast. Thus, I think a the old movie should have been done with the script of the Disney version (plus the cabinet scene and the radio scene) with the cast of the old film. Honestly, you just have to watch both versions to get the full experience.

Even though I do like the original 1982 movie version I like the 1999 Disney version more, mainly because its truer to the stage show.

The only part I really liked about the original was the tap dance at the very end.... so when I was little I used to watch the entire thing just for that one part. It was very refreshing when the new one came out... of course I didn't buy it until I was 17.

Post Disney is better
Yea, I remember i saw the origional when i was like 7, then we went and saw it on broadway and it was nothing like the movie and i was sad. then the disney movie was made and i like did back flips because it was so much more similar to the broadway version (yet very different)
iam glad they remade it.

I also must say that I love the appearance of ANdrea McAardle in the Disney film. Her voice has only gotten better and it is golden. I loved listening to her "NYC", much better after hearing her sing "Tomorrow" for years. I wish she would perform more on Broadway. I know she did Gypsy a few years back. She could make a neat replacement as Christine Colgate or Jolene Oakes in Dirty Rotten Scoundrels.

I like both for different reasons, but voted for the Disney one again for the same reasons already discussed. My sister just did Annie Junior with her school (She's a teacher) and they are doing Aladdin this year. I don't like the cheesy disneyness of the disney version. I love both Lilly's i would not be able to pick my favourite. Tim Curry would be my fav rooster and the 82 mrs Hannigan (Too lazy to go find her name) is my fav mrs Hannigan. Kathy Bates just isn't mean enough IMO.
anyway just my 2c

I like the Disney one better. I love Alan Cummings, and of course THE Kristin Chenoworth is in it!

i have to say disney because the ongs they wrote in on the original stink! Also when i did annie, someone asked when we were gonna practice let's go to the movies, so we had to tell her that it wasn't in the bway show! so the original totally gets people confused! :?
