    Did you forget the Disney film that came before snow white? Disney did! A clip movie (like bugs bunny road runner movie) with classic cartoons hosted by mickey mouse in new animation and walt Disney!

    This film should be the first in the Disney canon but Disney forgot about it.

    They also forgot about Mickeys birthday party show from 1978. A follow up to the many adventures of Winnie the pooh. (also a clip movie and part of disneys canon!)

    Considering it is a bunch of old things just shown together with next to no new material, i wouldn't count it as a vailid movie either.

    Well there's a bit of a difference. Those were short films. Snow White was the first full length film from Disney.

    if you read the original post:what about The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh.

    per Wikipedia:
    Although, that said, there are other films they don't count but maybe could, as well as films they do count that maybe shouldn't.

    It's just a clip movie of older shorts and it's canon. The birthday party movie is in fact a follow up to the pooh movie doing so well!

    Also both did have new things in it. They had new mickey clips as well as walt in the first and mousecateer and mickey new clips in the second.

    Edit--Even if they are not canon Disney should release them. Maybe in a dvd two pack or Disney movie club Blu-ray or on Disney plus?

    A update on these films from someone at animation news after some digging. Looks like the first DID get a vhs release! The second has never been released outside the big-screen!

    So the first is on vhs!

    The Wikipedia article for The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh highlights a few of the reasons it should count as a "feature film" when some of the others don't.

    "Extra material was used to link the three featurettes together to allow the stories to merge into each other."
    "A fourth, shorter featurette was added to bring the film to a close, originally made during production of Blustery Day (based on the presence of Jon Walmsley as Christopher Robin)."
    "It was always Walt Disney's intention to create a feature film, but he decided to make shorts instead — after production had begun — to familiarize U.S. audiences with the characters."

    So it was meant to be one film, but got chopped into shorts and then stitched back together. Its reconstituted form was given continuity and closure to make it work as a film again, as intended. None of this is the case for a collection of shorts presented in a revue format.
