There were very few Broadways musicals that were transferred to the movie medium during the 1980s and 1990s. Animated musical movies dominated in the 1990s with at least 20 animated films. The current decade has seen a slight resurgence of movie musicals based on Broadway plays, perhaps due to the enormous success of "Chicago." Most have not been successful, however, even though they were based on extremely successful plays. The popularity of animated musical movies has dropped considerably in the last eight years and it is no longer a dominant genre in film musicals.
