The Three Musketeers (Disney’s)
Mickey, Donald, and Goofy each have aspects of their personalities that make it difficult for them to individually defeat their foe. Ask your children what they feel their own weaknesses are, and then see if they can identify ways they can work together (with siblings or friends) to help each other overcome their deficiencies.
The Three Musketeers is a classic adventure written by Alexandre Dumas. Recommended for older children and teens, it can be easily found at most libraries and bookstores. Also, this film draws on music composed by Beethoven, Tchaikovsky, and the light operettas of Gilbert and Sullivan. Parents may want to use this movie as an opportunity to expose children to the original pieces, which are also readily obtained at most libraries and music outlets.
