    Who still watches Disney Films as an adult, I do.

    I'm 50+ years old and for a reason I still watch Disney films. Does anyone here still watch it as an adult, Apparently we do.
    Here is a picture of us watching Phineas and Ferb
    In 2009 my sister took a picture of me and my brother watching Phineas and Ferb on our TV, It was funny to see because it was literally 2 44 year olds watching a kids show (our ages back then now I am 57 while my brother is 56).

    Also yes I do watch adult stuff like Lakorn and stuff other than Disney films.

    I do ... but I have 8yo Boys.

    Had Peter Rabbit 2 on today ... just finished (again) the Harry Potter series.

    Not Disney, but close.

    Well, as Marvel studies are a subsidiary of Disney, I would say yes.

    Disney plus is as cheap as chips here, and well worth it.

    We all like to regress to the simpler time if our childhood. Having said that, many of these "Children's" movies have some adult themes that might go oer the heads of the children watching them.
    This is dome by design,
    Movie producers know that the children will not go to the movies by themselves, or have the money to access such movies.
    When my daughter was young, I watched every show , and every movie with her, I still know the whole SpongeBob song. and me and the wife still enjoy watching them on our own.

    Who lives in a pineapple under the sea?
    (Spongebob! Squarepants!)
    Absobant and yellow and pourous is he?
    (Spongebob! Squarepants!)
    Who's nautical nonsense be something you wish?
    (Spongebob! Squarepants!)
    So drop on the deck snd flop like a fish!
    (Spongebob! Squarepants!)
    Ready?
    (Spongebob! Squarepants!)
    (Spongebob! Squarepants!)
    (Spongebob! Squarepants!)
    (Spongebob Squarepants!)

    The sooner you fall behind, the more time you have to catch up.

    Nice one. I'm not having a go, I just find it amusing when a typo works so well.

    I don't have a TV and I have no recollection of the last time I went to a cinema. The only time I watch a film or TV series thingy is when I'm on a plane. I don't think I've watched a Disney production on a plane.
    Pues, aquí estamos.

    Tbh, I have never heard of this. Anyway, Disney these days is a massive conglomerate-
    The Walt Disney Company - Wikipedia

    So I doubt you can avoid watching Disney material! But when I think of Disney, I still think of the old classic cartoons- several of which have been remade, with varying degrees of success.

    The original Jungle Book is a classic.

    It's not because of that but because in the 60's and 70's when me and my brother was a kid we used to watch Disney films on our old television. We never knew it was for kids until 2012. We thought it was something that everyone could watch.

    This show is also very popular and mainstream. I saw it on Disney Channel Asia before in Singapore.

    Sorry, but I haven't. You might say we are swamped with available content these days, and I'm not the most avid TV addict.

    I got Disney plus again recently and did a binge of watching movies on the weekend.

    Mulan and West Side Story are both excellent movies on Disney plus.

    Maybe he has children, or grandchildren, nieces, nephews etc...

    It was predictable but a cute family movie . . . though that'll be the last one we watch as my daughter said afterwards that she'd grown past that stage. Still - worth a watch if you have nothing better to do

    Does Star Wars and Marvel count? I think many of the kids films are good the first time through, they often have a lot of adult jokes. Most of the kids shows are not worth my time, but Phineas and Ferb is interesting though, kinda reminds me of tamer Rick and Morty.

    Those are (read this slowly) reasons why he MAY have heard of that show.

    Your response to my comment is one of your trademark non sequiturs.
