Everyone has their own favorite movie, but some decades have brought out some iconic titles.
The 1990s saw many movies we can't stop talking about today, whether it's a Disney classic or hits like Terminator 2, Clueless, and The Matrix. Since there are so many movies that have captured the hearts of Americans, some experts were wondering if certain states have favorites.
That's where Frontier Bundles comes in. They conducted a study where they used data to determine the most searched 90s movie in each state. This was their method:
"The team at FrontierBundles.com looked at the past year’s search volume (5/18/20 – 5/18/21) for the 20 highest-grossing films from the 1990s. From this data, we determined which 90s movies each state searched for the most. Only 13 of the 20 movies made the list due to search volume."
So, what movie has been on the minds of Washingtonians? According to the study, that movie is...
The Lion King!
We're talking about the original 1994 movie that keeps us singing, crying and more. This heartfelt story takes place in Africa, where a young lion named Simba learns to find himself in the wake of a tragedy.
In fact, The Lion King was so popular, 18 other states were in love with this movie, too!
