Disney movies in order of historical setting

(Excludes most of the package films. Some films, eg The Lion King, are impossible to pin down exactly and some, like Aladdin and Treasure Planet, are anachronistic, so these are estimations. A few have been split into 2 if there is more than one time period in the movie, and sequels have been put together.)

all good except frozen is definitely late 1830s-40s - their mother is depicted in an empire-waist dress from the ’20s, but the wide bell-shaped skirts and drop-shoulder dresses, as well as the hair throughout the movie is far more indicative of the 40s.

Rowan Jacobsen’s Apples of Uncommon Character has apples, apples and more apples – 123 varieties, in fact. Team member Beth says it feels kind of like a Facebook for fruit: “profile photos taken from the most flattering angle, and a rundown of basic biographical data — origin, appearance, flavor, texture, season, use and region. (Of course, there’s some good gossip, too — like how Golden Delicious ‘sired’ Jonagold, Mutsu, Gala, Pink Lady and many more).”

Other things Beth learned while reading the book: which apple variety inspired Isaac Newton’s theory of gravity, and which one inspired Rambo. Read Beth’s review of the book here.
