Best Disney Animated Movies
The Contenders: Page 2
Easily the best Disney film ever. The story, visuals, voices and the music is Disney at it's finest. People think it is inappropriate for children, no it is not. My parents let me watch it and I was two when it came out and my siblings and I loved it, we didn't even pick up on the dark themes as children and children don't notice or understand those elements at a young age, it is visually and musically entertaining and exciting. We did later on as we got older but it made us love the movie even more. The characters are so relatable and realistic, and the voices are perfect. Frollo is the best Disney villain ever and Esmeralda is the first true Disney feminist, she is smarter than Belle and braver than Mulan she is amazing. Disney needs to breathe life back into this movie and start promoting it again at all the theme parks and stores.
This was Disney at it's best! It has one of the greatest stories in any Disney movie and features some of the best music. This should be in the top 5 at least.
This movie is so great, it's sad that's it's so underrated. The music is awesome.
At Number 20 are you serious? This film has got it all: Great characters, awesome villain, brilliant story, wonderful settings, amazing design, glorious music and songs etc And it's at Number 20?! Everyone, get this to the top 5 at least :DV 39 Comments
Words can't say how great is that movie, it has the best animation, the best (maybe predictable ) plot and also the characters are also relatable and cute as well (including Baymax). Besides that, the premise is amazingly sympathetic and the cinematography of this movie is one of the best in animation history. Totally one of Disney's best movies
This movies is unique. It is the first Disney movie where not one person has a love interest ( even in brave the parents did) and I thought they did a beautiful job with Hiro's character and I was glad he was the protagonist! It is also the few Disney movies where the main character turns into a villan! It's not as predictable as everyone thinks, because how many people thought Tadashi was Yokai? There was also some cliche's, but in it's defense it is a Disney movie, I think this is the best movie Disney ever created. Totally worthy of the top ten. - AnnaOfArendelle332
I love this movie! In my opinion, it's better than frozen. My dad saw it, and he actually liked it! And my mom didn't fall asleep while we were watching it in the theater! (she always falls asleep during a movie). This should be ranked higher!
Come on. It's Big Hero 6! Firstly, the plot wasn't some kind of sappy fairy tale. (Not that all animated Disney movies are like that, but most of them on this list are.) Second, the animations were pretty good. The characters were deep and well thought out. The climax was pretty interesting, and the twist added a lot to the story. (SPOILER ALERT: Dr. Callaghan is the guy in the mask.) Either way, I think Big Hero 6 should be higher on the list.V 58 Comments
I was suprised to see this so far down on the list. Seems like there are mostly young people voting in these polls. It's a very dark movie about morals, the underlaying message being do unto others as you want them to do to you. And I loved those clocks... gosh :p
I will admit I did not vote for Pinocchio, but I still think this is a great Disney film. It will probably never get the recognition it deserves given the popularity of Disney's later movies, but Pinocchio is in my opinion the best animation seen in a Disney film, especially given the time period it was made. The story, although nonsensical at times with how naive Pinocchio was, really gets the morals of the story right in a frighteningly memorable way that really pushes this film into the discussion as one of Disney's best films. I would put it at least in the top 10, if not the top 5.
A classic moral tale which could teach young children of the day a worthwhile lesson
I vote this movie for the Blue Fairy!V 20 Comments
I just had to vote for this because it's an absolute classic, and I have a fascination with weird, trippy things. Oddly enough I never did drugs but I get my highs off of watching movies like this. Things in it don't make sense, it's very dream-like and surreal. I love it. Plus the Cheshire Cat is one of my favorite Disney characters of all time. I could watch this over and over and never get bored of it!
It is a world from the imagination of a child's heart. One of the more precious disney movies and always made me think and think. Maybe I will go paint some roses red... :) Alice is also a great main character with smarts, sweet and simply an innocent figure. I love how she wants these peculiar things such as a want for pictures in all her books and not words. I love " Alice in Wonderland"!
Great movie! Really fantastic! Full of fantasies! I watched this movie a hundred times! It simply rocks! Should be in the top 10 not top 25! - Nanditha946
I love the Cheshire Cat. He's one of my favorite Disney characters.V 9 Comments
It is really the best movie because it teaches you a lesson to not talk to stranger when you do not know what they are like from the inside and as well it was the best film made and the first Disney film as well I really like snow white as well it has so many features in it and it uses lots of creative things like the dwarfs and many other thing it is a really nice and imaginative film
It's the first Disney film ever made. How could it not be on the list. - 123klongike
This movie was the FIRST animated Disney feature! Therefore, its overall #1! And yes, being the first makes it the best!
Snow white and the seven dwarfs is my favorite friary tale and to play snow white. A lot and I sing I wishing one song my favorite Disney princess song all timeV 25 Comments
The more I analyze everything good about this film, the more I think that it may just not only be the best pixar and Disney animated film. But the best animated movie made. I know that's a bold statement but this film has great writing, characters, and storytelling. It's pretty much perfect. Not to mention it's the highest rated film on rotten tomatoes.
Place 56 are you kidding me!? This movie was my all-time favourite in my childhood! It deserves a much better rating.
Such as a good movie was laughing every 5 seconds! Love all the toy story movies but I felt this this personally was better than Toy Story 1!
I know that's your opinion but personally Toy Story 2 is my least favourite of the Toy Stories, though it is still awesome! - sryanbruen
Best toy story movie - Firestar0227V 11 Comments
If you are reading these comments, then believe everyone and me that this movie was amazing. I'm 14, and every time I watch it, I cry and cry. There's just something about it that makes it one of my most favorite disney movies. My other favorites are The Little Mermaid, The Lion King, Aladdin, Mulan, and Pocohantas.
My name is Dustin Bible and this movie is my favorite of all time. It still makes me cry when I watch it. I named my dog Copper and my cat Todd. Yeah a guy can own a cat, it doesn't mean he is less of a man. It shows his sensitive side. So all you ladies out there just give me a call. That's Dustin Bible 276 495 1140
I really, really love this movie! It is very heartwarming, and teaches a beautiful moral! It teaches that even natural enemies can be best friends, and the movie is just so beautiful. On a scale of 1-10, I'd give it 109! It's just that good! It should be #4 behind Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid, and The Lion King with Beauty and the Beast at 3, The Little Mermaid at 2, and The Lion King at #1 of course!
I like the fox and the hound movie was my favortie funny scenes that movie it did make me laugh a lotV 36 Comments
Can't believe bambi isn't up there in the top ten! It makes me cry, even at 16, and it is truly a disney classic. Love it.
Bambi is a animated classic. I don't think this movie is as viewed as it is respected cause it's old and cute but Bambi is easily one of Disney's best. It has such powerful atmosphere and you just get sucked into the environment. What I also love about this movie is that you can enjoy it more as an adult than a kid and it doesn't have any cliches. It doesn't even have a plot or story and focuses on the character. It's a coming of age story told brilliantly.
Love this movie! I'm 20 and it's one of my all time favorites
Not worst than mulan tarzan or hercules - lolsyV 12 Comments
Best villain ever. Love ALL the fairies. Best animation, and best music -- from the Tchaikovsky ballet.
While not my favourite, I think of this film as a masterpiece when it comes to the animation. It's so detailed and beautiful, every frame should be framed. Besides the animation, there's much to like about Sleeping Beauty: The fairies do great as comic relief, the music is lovely and Maleficent is one of the most iconic villains of all time, Disney or not. The only problem I really have is the characters; Aurora and Philip. Aurora only gets 18 lines in the whole movie and Philip is rather boring, but at least he has a personality (looking at you, Prince Charming) and there's quite a lot of filler. I recommend watching it if you haven't already
When I were first watch this amazing movie I just love it and the prince is so handsome and I like Maleficent and Aurora I love how Maleficent movie does but I love sleeping beauty even it's so old it's like a masterpiece of a curse - BellaBeauty
I love the fairies. I HATE Maleficent so muchV 21 Comments
Its one of my favoutite cartoon I am 12 but I still watch it
Incredible movie that is great for adults as well as children. I could listen to Ego's monologue over and over again!
How can this movie be all the way down in 23. It is one of the best Disney movie that I have ever seen. It should be in the top 5 at the very least.
Best Disney and Pixar movie ever been watching it for 9 yearsV 22 Comments
I don't understand how this isn't in the top ten! its the BEST MOVIE EVER!
How come this isn't 1st! It is totally the best movie ever! You people don't know what your missing! - Vampirebite801
This move is great, it should be much higher on this list. - TopTenJackson
Cars is my favorite Disney Pixar movie all time and my favorite character from cars is lighting McQueenV 20 Comments
(Warning my comment contains spoilers) I LOVE THIS MOVIE! It made me cry! Anger was by far my favorite character. And it had amazing animations. And her comes the spoiler... I can't believe that Bing Bong Dies! He turns into dust! He sacrifices for Joy! He was so funny and it made me cry when he died! And I turned around in the theater in that Scene and an old lady was balling!
Bing bong was so funny! Greatest Pixar movie ever! (And second saddest)
Why is this movie so low? THIS MOVIE ROCKS!
This movie was a masterpiece. It was so sad! Especially what happens to Bing Bong. The animation in this movie is top notch. I have never seen a movie with such vibrant colors that actually turns out good. The characters are very well-developed. I would of like to see more Disgust but that's alright. I think this movie is actually enjoyable for parents unlike a lot of other Disney movies.V 21 Comments
This movie has it all: great songs, AMAZING animation, an inspirational message and one of the best female characters ever! Pocahontas teaches peace, co-existence and that girls can be brave, intelligent and make a different. Why is this so low?!?
The only Disney Princess not to get a happy ending. A beautiful message with great songs and wonderful animations. I wish this was higher as it shows little kids you don't always get the man of your dreams and peace is more important than love!
Best message of all the Disney movies! It teaches us that nature is how the world was meant to be! Mother natures intensions are the best intensions and peace and love can solve all problems. Truly insprirational and an absolute classic with breathtaking animations and songs. LOVE
Underrated because it's politically correct, just like the DreamWorks movie Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron. Critics are so full of crap - McgillacuddyV 24 Comments
Zootopia has everything a great mystery, a great big friendship, and even a surprise villain. It is a very entertaining movie it should be in at least 2nd.
For the longest time, my favorite disney movie was The Princess and the frog, and then Zootopia came along and blew it out of the water. It managed to tell a really good story, have a really good message, didn't kill the villain, and I actually rooted for the main characters rather than wanting them to get beaten by the villain (ala Aladdin or Tangled)
This is probably one of the best Disney films ever. Likable characters, great story, flawless animation and humor that's actually funny. I just hope it grosses more money than Frozen. Frozen is overrated and awful. Zootopia is much better.
It's great it about two opposites working together to solve a mystery. It's Makes Opponents Working together and what's better then mystery. It reminds me of Scooby-Doo - StevenpenguinV 32 Comments
Fantasia is a masterpiece. The animation, as well as the score, is outstanding. This is Disney at its finest. You can tell that there is so much work and so much heart that goes into this film, and the final product is beautiful. Out of all of the amazing films Disney, as well as anyone else, has created, Fantasia is the most creative, awe-inspiring, and imaginative I've ever experienced!
#51? The most ridiculous placing I've ever seen on this lovely and phenomenal piece of art! So much passion put into this feature that it's arguably Walt Disney's greatest film he ever made! Though technically The Lion King is the studio's most inspiring, Fantasia should at least be in the Top 5.
I Loved this when I was younger.
Wish I still had it.
Great movie and Rite of Spring is my favorite segmentV 7 Comments
The animation in PETER PAN is as lively as its energetic hero. The scenes set in Victorian London are beautiful, and the shift in perspective as the children round Big Ben and fly off to Neverland is sublimely vertiginous. Most children see Peter as that wonderful ideal, a child with the power to do whatever he pleases for as long as he pleases.
The story does have moments that are whimsical but also very odd: the nanny is a dog; the crocodile that ate Captain Hook's hand keeps following him for another taste; Peter loses his shadow; the Lost Boys have no parents, and unlike Peter, no special powers, fairy guardian, or unquenchable brio. Some children find this engaging, but a few find it troublesome, or worry about what happened to Peter's parents and whether he will be all right without them. They may also be sad that the story ends with Peter bringing the Darling children home and then going back to Neverland without them.
This movie is a touching movie about a boy who doesn't believe in growing who meets a girl and learns the meaning of it. Wendy who is a girls with many dreams is taken of to never land to learn that there is no growing there and has to decide whether to stay in never land and never grow or go back to her family and continue growing up into a wonderful lady.
Peter Pan is an inspirational film for anyone. The music is beautiful, as is the story and the characters. Disney is all about childhood and Peter Pan shares the message, there will always be a child inside of us. 10/10. A true classic.
This movie perfects fun and adventure. I deserves top 20, at least - KnucklewoodV 20 Comments
Beautiful, beautiful movie! It has music, emotion (one of the only Disney movies to almost make me cry), humor, and the animation quality is superb! I would recommend this movie to anyone yearning for a love story with a happy ending!
Taking dogs and giving them a special human quality that makes us all feel we are along for the ride. See characters that we can relate to as people we know, maybe even see ourselves. This movie is the REAL magic of Disney.
I so love Lady and the Tramp it is one of my favourite movies and I am 10 years old! I love the lion king as well because it is so moving. I love how this film shows that a posh dog can still like a scruffy dog.
I am 11 and I love it! Should be up there behind Nemo! Better than
A lot of that other crap!
One of my all time favorites, the songs are catchy and the dialogue is funny! Great all round!
An inspirational tale to inspire those to work for a greater good and to display good morals.
This movie is charming even though the animation is terrible. I've always loved it!
This is the best Disney movie ever and is way too underestimated.V 5 Comments
This is too funny! One of my favourite Disney movie!
Highly Recommended! You have to watch it!
How the hell is this so low?! This isn't just the best Disney movie but one of the best movies, it's just so funny!
This movie is one of the only animated movies that can make me laugh. #1
Definitely the funniest disney movie! in my opinion it's not as good as for example Lion King, but damn this sould at least be top 10!V 19 Comments
.. The scene where dumbo meets his mother and she sings "baby mine"... Saddest thing I have ever seen in my life!
This movie might be short and simple, plus it tries not to be anything big, but it really works. It has really nice animation, a good Rudolph the red nose reindeer type story, memorable characters, nice songs, and some really tear jerking emotional scenes that work so well. This is the only movie I truly consider perfect, and it's my favorite movie of all time.
Dude when I was 5 that 'baby mine' song was the saddest song in my life. I mean Pokemon heroes was not sad but that song was so sad even sadder than Mighty Jo Young.
Adorable, emotional, gorgeous, and just dow right sweet and fun, Dumbo is a disney classic and my favorite movieV 8 Comments
