Audience Reviews for The Little Matchgirl


It is the most beautiful piece of 2D animation to date. Maybe better than Duet, but their both fantastic. I heard this was supposed to be in Fantasia 2006, but due to the films cancellation, it was it's own independent short film. I'm putting thought on remaking Fantasia 2006. Story: 8/10 Animation: 10/10 Characters: 9/10 Total: 9/10

It was a very well done, very touching and really enjoyable Disney animated short. It had very beautiful animation, great characters, really great music, very artistic backgrounds, great drama and a great story. It's one of the best Disney animated shorts of 2006. I've seen this short movie after "The Little Mermaid." I really will recommend this short movie to kids and adults alike.

Tragic yet hopeful. One of the most mature and artistic films that Disney has ever created in recent years. It is so emotionally-gripping and heart-tearing. It's very rare that Disney would make anything this serious, and unfortunately it's doubtful that Disney would ever make anything this good ever again... But this short film gave me hope that Disney has not lose its heart and could still make a masterpiece that would make Walt Disney himself proud.
