    ★★★★½

    Despite hitting it big with Snow White, Disney started facing trouble afterward. While Pinocchio and Fantasia were highly acclaimed, the films were not financially successful. Being released during WWII, they were cut off from foreign markets. They would only make their money back with re-issues over the following decades.
