Top 10 Feel-Good Fantasy Films



Fantasy films are filled with supernatural beings, sorcery, mystical journeys, and magical worlds where anything is possible.  To celebrate the release of Chronicles of Narnia:  Voyage of The Dawn Treader out on Blu-ray and DVD April 8th, here are our top ten awe inspiring, fantasy films that are filled with epic adventures and offer an ideal escape from reality for the young, or just the young at heart:



Chronicles of Narnia:  Voyage of the Dawn Treader
King Caspian along with Lucy, Edmund and Eustace travel on an epic journey across the sea to the edge of the world, and encounter dragons, merfolk, dragons and more!  Lessons of humility and gratitude make this a perfect movie that arrives just in time for Easter.


The Nightmare Before Christmas
Jack Skellington wants some variety in his world and decides to bring Christmas to Halloweentown, no matter what the cost.  As dark as this film seems on the surface, it brings out the warm fuzzies in most everyone.


Donnie Darko
Every Jake Gyllenhaal fan wants to watch him in this cult-role as a troubled teen pining after Jena Malone.  Who doesn’t love time traveling and watching this hottie figure out the secrets of the universe and engage in some of the most out-of-touch conversations with a creepy bunny rabbit man.


Edward Scissorhands
Winona, Johnny, Vincent, Tim…the perfect combo.  With bright and colorful homes and people, fantastical ice sculptures, and the angst-ridden hope that forbidden love brings – this one just cuts out a heart on our sleeve.


The Princess Bride
This cinematic classic is a wonderful fairy tale where true love ultimately prevails.  Giants, pirates, Princess Buttercup, adventure and intrigue – you will be quoting lines for years to come.  “As youuuu wishhhhh!!” 


Willow
Enter the little world of dwarves, and follow Willow on his magical quest to save the baby princess he loves as his own.  The evil queen is definitely enchanting and will keep you in her clutches throughout the entire movie.


The Wizard of Oz
Follow the yellow-brick road to find a Wizard in an Emerald City who has all the answers and knows the way back home.  Judy Garland’s beauty and timelessness warms any tin man’s heart.


Labyrinth
Jim Henson’s masterpiece features the very colorful and charismatic David Bowie, and a young Jennifer Connelly who wishes her baby brother would disappear.  When her wish comes true and the Goblin King steals him away, she must brave the labyrinth and rescue him before he becomes a goblin himself!


Legend
Tom Cruise plays a forest dweller that must face a powerful demon, save unicorns, a fairy princess and hold on to innocence before all is lost in his world.


The Never Ending Story
Escape the troubles of life and fly on Falcor’s back to Fantasia.  Bastian reads the NeverEnding Story and realizes he has more power than he thought and ultimately becomes a hero in his own right!


After looking over this list I have seen 8 of them and a few are some of my top favorite movies. The Never Ending Story and Labyrinth I LOVED as a kid and have seen  hundreds of times. Edward Scissorhands and The Nightmare Before Christmas are awesome. Willow and The Princess Bride were great I remember those ones too! Of course who doesn't love Wizard of Oz. I went to see Chronicles of Narnia:  Voyage of The Dawn Treader by myself and loved it just as much as the other Narnia movies. I look forward to it coming out on DVD to share it with my husband and son! The other two movies I have not seen but are now on my list of movies to watch. Oddly they are the ones that have huge starts like Tom Cruise and Jake Gyllenhaal. I recently watched the new Jake Gyllenhaal movie Source Code and WOW so cool. I will not say anything more as to not spoil it for anyone.
