The Little Matchgirl is the animated Disney version of the classic Christian Andersen story. It's New Year's Eve and a poor little girl is on the street, selling matches to whomever will buy them to survive. She can't go home penniless or her father will beat her, so she stays out peddling matches. Afraid and cold, she shelters herself in a corner and lights a match to keep warm. In the glowing light she sees images of a Christmas tree surrounded by presents. When it goes out, she lights another. Now she sees a table covered in rich holiday food. She sees a shooting star and remembers her grandmother telling her that a shooting star is an angel carrying a soul to heaven. She lights her last match and sees a vision of her grandmother. This tender story is illustrated beautifully with the Disney mystique on watercolor backgrounds. The audience can feel the cold wind, the warmth of the matches, and the little girl's tender heart.moreless
