The older one has more sentimental value (I used to watch it all the time as a kid) and, for me, a much better cast. But when it comes down to it, I suppose the Disney version is the better movie, because it is much closer to the stage show. After having been in Annie, the musical, it was so refreshing to see something truer to what I'd done.

I've never seen the whole disney one..but the parts I've seen are better..but I love the cast of the old one..I love both Bernadette Peters and Kristen Chenoweth as Lily..but Carol Burnet is the ultimate miss hannigan and I like Anne Reinking as Grace a lot too..I grew up with the old movie..so it's more sentimental but the new disney one is truer to the stage show..I too did Annie jr. (as Annie) and I've seen a few productions of it..and the disney one is pretty true to the show 1but gotta love the old cast!

I think I'm rather partial to the original. I love Carol Burnett, Anne Reinking and Bernadette Peters. I think its because its was the first version I ever seen and was horribly obsessed with it as a child. Though I do agree the Disney version stayed more true to the show. Had the orignal kept the same cast but remained true to the show I would hands down say it was the best.

I voted the original movie, purely because my sisters and I went through two VHS copies in the 80's, it was watched that often. I like the Disney version because it is closer to the Stage version but it's a little too Disney-afide! Carol Burnett is a legend my eye's and I don't think Kathy Bates was good enough at all to fill her shoes. I was really dissapointed because she is an amazing actress and I think she should stick to straight acting!

at least the original film had the legendary Albert Finney in a perfect performance as Warbucks..comic genius Carol Burnett as Hannigan and Tim Curry and Bernadette Peters as Rooster and Lily.

the Disney remake miscast every role except Rooster and Lily.

Kathy Bates was boring as Hannigan and they cut her drinkingf for christ's sake!

Garber was too nice from the start as Warbucks, and the whole film was dull.

the original isnt perfect but its miles ahead of Disney's castration.

I'm split between the two.

The Disney film was closer to the stage show. But Daddy Warbucks having a black secretary and marrying her...in the 1930s...nnnnnno....I don't think so. :? And I didn't like how they reversed the roles of Lily and Hannigan when trying to get Annie.

The Original movie was good. Loved Carol Burnett but they didn't make her mean enough and at the end she went soft. Didn't see the point in having Punjab and what's with adding the helicopter? It served a purpose at the end but the ending was sort of weird.
