Let It Go - Frozen
Over the years, people have often used quotes from the movies in order to give whatever they are saying some form of populist subtext. I've done this myself, more often than I'd like to admit, each time spurting out a hopeful word of wisdom complemented by a so-called celebrity impression. Into Film have obviously recognized this particular character trait, and that is why they've held a poll to figure out what's the most popular movie quote among children aged between 5 to 19.

As some of you may recall, Into Film is an educational charity that provides information and resources to schools and colleges throughout the UK. So of course, it only stands to reason that they'd want to research this subject, finally coming up with the following results for us to peruse. Here, check them out for yourself so you can see what are the top 20 film quotes featured in a children’s movie:

  1. Belle from 'Beauty and The Beast' (28%): “It’s not until you lose everything that you truly appreciate everything”.
  2. Merlin from 'The Sword and The Stone' (25%): “It’s up to you how far you’ll go. If you don’t try, you’ll never know”.
  3. Professor Dumbledore from 'Harry Potter and The Philosophers Stone' (24%): “It takes a great deal of bravery to stand up to your enemies, but a great deal more to stand up to your friends”.
  4. Blue Fairy from 'Pinocchio' (23%): “Always let conscience be your guide”.
  5. Grandmother Willow from 'Pocahontas' (22%): “Sometimes the right path is not the easiest one”.
  6. Rafiki from 'The Lion King' (21%): “Oh yes, the past can hurt. But, you can either run from it or learn from it”.
  7. Olaf from 'Frozen' (21%): “Love is putting someone else’s need before yours”.
  8. Buzz Lightyear from 'Toy Story' (19%): “To infinity and beyond”.

  18. The Emperor of China from 'Mulan' (12%): “The flower that blooms in adversity is the most rare and beautiful of them all”.
  19. Stitch from 'Lilo and Stitch' (12%): “Ohana means family, family means nobody gets left behind... or forgotten”.
  20. Hogarth Hughes from 'The Iron Giant' (11%): “You are who you choose to be”.
Over a half of Brits, approximately 51%, agreed that children’s movie quotes have helped to motivate and inspire them throughout their life. Almost one in ten have also admitted to considering getting a tattoo directly inspired by a film quote.

Now, while they were conducting this poll, Into Film also conducted another one to run alongside it. This time though, instead of asking children about their favorite film quote, they asked them about their favorite character or villain. Eventually they compiled and came up with the following two lists which you can now have a look at...

Luke, I am Your Father - Star Wars
Top 5 Most Memorable Movie Villains:
  1. Darth Vader from 'Star Wars: A New Hope' (46%)
  2. Cruella De Vil from '101 Dalmations' (45%)
  3. Voldemort from 'Harry Potter and The Philosopher’s Stone' (30%)
  4. Captain Hook from 'Peter Pan/Hook' (28%)
  5. Shere Khan from 'The Jungle Book' (25%)

Top 5 Favorite Children’s Movie Characters:
  1. Mary Poppins from 'Mary Poppins' (24%)
  2. Shrek from 'Shrek' (23%)
  3. E.T. from 'E.T The Extra Terrestrial' (21%)
  4. Simba from 'The Lion King' (20%)
  5. Harry Potter from 'Harry Potter and The Philosopher’s Stone' (19%)

On average, Brits typically spend over an hour and a half per week watching movies with their family, which approximately equates to a total of 3 days of movie watching every year.

Paul Reeve, who's the CEO of Into Film, recently said, 'Movie quotes have become ingrained in our culture, and some even become part of everyday vernacular. We are normally more than likely to know an animal named ‘Simba’ or ‘Bambi’, as a third of us have named our pets after a character from a film, whilst an eighth have confessed that they would name a child after their favorite film character'.
