Screen Shot 2018-04-15 at 11.22.10 PM

Voting on the Golden Region came to a close on Friday and eight lucky winners advanced to the next round. Now we continue are first round voting with the Classic region including Disney favorites such as Snow White and Bambi. The amount of great movies in this region made it incredibly difficult to seed the movies in a fair manner.

Before we get to the matchups in the Classic Region, let’s quickly review the voting from the Golden Region.

Golden Region First Round Recap

Not much of a shock here. The Lion King is one of the favorites to win the entire tournament and it had no issue easily dispatching the 16 seed Mighty Ducks in the opening round.

Our closest matchup of the first round went the way of Tarzan by a single vote over the Hunchback of Notre Dame. Seeded at 9, Tarzan pulled off the only upset in this region but it was very minor.

Dominating performance from Ariel and the rest of the of The Little Mermaid cast over Rescuers Down Under. This was easily the largest victory in terms of vote difference in this round.

If you’re a 5 seed in any tournament you should always be on upset watch and Pocahontas was nearly the latest victim. Tigger came out guns blazing but as the tie wore on, the experienced and beloved classic eventually took control and advanced.

Another 1990’s classic fought off a tough opponent and survived the opening round. Mulan controlled the voting for most of the meeting and her popularity just became too much. Mushu provided some insurance off the bench.

All dogs are good but not good enough to pull off an upset over fan favorite Beauty and the Beast in the first round. Another classic showed up big time with a strong performance, taking home over 80% of the vote.

If one matchup had upset written all over it, it was this one but in the end Hercules summoned enough strength to move on. Goofy is one of the most recognizable Disney characters but his more modern self couldn’t garner enough votes.

Tying The Little Mermaid for largest margin of victory in this opening round was two seeded Aladdin who cleaned up shop against Fantasia 2000 for an easy win and a spot in the next round of voting.

Here’s a glimpse of the Golden Region after the first round:
