Best Disney Animated Movies

The Contenders: Page 3XW

41Treasure Planet

The best, the way build and climax of the film is most exceptional, I've watched this so many times and it never gets old

Greatest movie to ever grace my eyes. I watched it as a kid and loved it. It's one of the primary reasons I became so fascinated with ships and sailing. The movie is top notch and there is absolutely no reasons not to nab it. Movie teaches you that you can always choose your path in life and that sometimes friendships are rocky but they are always worth it.

Watched it today for sentimental value. Damn near cried and it's not even truly sad. I this movie.

Definitely I love this movie! Because its teach us to how trust and sincerity of friendship.

I could watch this movie overs and overs.

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.

No it shouldn't! It should be the bottom 30! It's the most overrated Disney movie ever made! - Disney1994

I Loved this when I was younger.
Wish I still had it.

A masterpiece only Walt could have made.

43Cars 2

This film was highly underwhelming. Instead of taking time with the storylines, Pixar just tried to get out a random movie for the public every year, and in my opinion, that's terrible moviemaking. - Mcgillacuddy

This should be lower. Please make it be lower. - BKAllmighty

Yeah this movie makes no since I like the first one better. But cars 2? It's weird because it's a mixed

This should be at the bottom

44Monsters University

Feeling nostalgic about this one

Better than the first. Should be in the top ten

Why isn't it on the top 10 or at least top 50. It really tells the story of how mike and sulley met and I did'nt know that mike wanted to be a scarier he was so dedicaded to be one

45The Aristocats

Yet another great Disney movie that can't go unnoticed!

I love the aristocats! It is so awesome! I watched it when is was 5, and it was one of the best disney movies I ever seen - VIPbunny10

This movie is my favourite it's really disappointing that it's so far down the list. This film does not get much recognition but I still love it

I love this movie, it's my second favorite movie (the first is the lion king). it has cats in it! - Catacorn

46The Great Mouse Detective

This is better than any Disney princess film. The characters were believable and their personalities were realistic and could be related to. Basil and Co. Are even a wonderful introduction to the world of Sherlock Holmes given the fact that they are their equivalents. Such a great, but sadly underrated movie.

I really love this movie. the little detective mouse reminds me of the Sherlock Homes.

Just saw this movie and I regret not seeing it sooner! I loved the characters and the animation was flawless. The plot left grasping for more. Best mouse detective movie ever!

This is one of my most favourite Disney movies ever ever! But can't believe this is so low in list. I love the character and the villains!

47Oliver & Company

I don't care what other people say about it. I still think that this is the best Disney movie to ever be released. It was actually the first Disney movie I ever remember seeing at the cinemas.

I love this film, it's deep and I found my dog in the exact way that she found her cat. Makes me cry every time its amazing and I love it!

I love this film, it's funny and the kittens are cute. A very well written Disney film.

I really love this movie!

.. 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.

49The Nightmare Before Christmas

The nightmare before Christmas is one of my Favourite movies of all time and my favourite Christmas movie it should be Higher on this list and teaches us to be how we are and not pretend to be some one else by far I couldn't see Tim Burton make a better animated movie in his style.

Seriously people, use common sense. This one of my favorite movies! And the ending is so sweet!

Tim Burton this was different for Disney but it was very dark and edgy and I think one of the best Disney movies.

I love this movie!

I really genuinely LOVED this movie. Disney may come out with some crap at times (Teen beach movie, Lemonade mouth, high school musical) but genuine and REAL disney can make me happy cry. I am seriously a huge disney fan and I personally love this list, defiantly the best movies I have ever seen were: Finding Nemo, Brave, Tangled, Beauty and the Beast, Monsters Inc, and I can tell Frozen is going to be off the hook! Brave throbbed on my heart. The first disney princess to: Not have a prince, have a movie describing her mother relationship with her, come from Pixar, have awesome but messed up hair, and to look pretty even with natural beauty.

Insanely good animation, a fearless unique princess, NO romantic crap and a wonderful story about family and fate. Pure brilliance.

Is such a great movie, fun to watch, easy to connect to, and really hard to forget, this one and Tangled are my favourite Disney movies of all time, but I had to go with this, because it made the life of a princess so approachable.

Awesome movie

Great good brilliant. The best animate movie I've seen. Miley Cyrus' work. Love for the reason multiply and just love. Wonderful one. Yeah

this movie is so inspiring and funny you haved to see it

Smooth, funny and well thought. The dialogues are the strongest part of this movie in my opinion. A brilliant combination of characters. The Bolt and Mittens expressions and movements are so real that I could only think of someone spending their entire life with dogs and cats to be able to reach such details in animals behavior and animate it.

Never really enjoyed this movie

52The Lion King II: Simba's Pride

I love this movie and all the disney movie's but this is my favorite.
My list.
Lion king 2
Lion king
Hunchback of notre dame.
Beauty and the beast.

I loved the lion king and the lion king 2. That's why I want to be a lion. IT'S ONE OF MY ALL TIME FAVORITE MOVIES EVER! I wish they made more and more lion kings.
I don't want them to ever end and I want to keep watching them over and over again. I loved all the lion kings. It is my all time favorite Disney movie ever and that will never change.

It was so awesome that when I watched it, it LITERALLY felt like 5 minutes, and I couldn't believe it was OVER! I watched it over and over again, and never got bored xD I thought Kovu was so hot! - Splashstorm

How is this 50? This was perfect perfection. Perfect soundtrack, epic love story, family love, humor, scenery was great, etc

54A Bug's Life

Best of the best... I will never forget this movie

This film is so underrated. It's right up there with Wall-e and The Lion King. I actually think the song Sweet Emotion by Aerosmith would be a good song for the end of the movie when Flik and Atta are holding hands. Put on the end of this movie at the part where Atta gets crowned queen and play Sweet Emotion by Aerosmith along with it. Just a suggestion. I found it pretty cool to do that.

I was disappointed not to see this at #1 or 2 (2 is MonstersInc) much less outside top ten! - eglum84jets

54!? This is easily top 10

55The Sword in the Stone

No one ever talks about this movie, but I loved it when I first saw it as a kid and I still think it's great. Maybe the best songs aren't here, but it bounces along with a nice blend of action and humor that makes for an entertaining watch. - Dave0the0Suave

This is so the best movie ever!!! I love Merlin and Archimedes.

This is by far one of the best and there isn't even a sad part it's just a wonderful adventure the whole way! Really inspiring and hilarious too

One of the FUNNIEST Disney movies of all time

56The Princess and the Frog

Lol... I'm too old to watch Disney movies, but I swear. THIS WAS MADE FOR KIDS MY AGE!
VooDoo Mamma: How's your grammama, Ray?
Ray: Oh, she got in trouble for flashing the neighbors again!
VooDoo Mama: L like dat girl! She got SPUNK!

Probably the best movie I've ever seen! It shows the good side and bad side of love. The bad side was the love for money, fame and power, while the good side was love for family, love for a friend, and of course the true meaning of love! My favorite part, when Ray the firefly finally be with Angeline!

Coolest Disney movie ever! Probably first kids movie that a good character died. LOVE IT!

Actually Bambi was the first one to kill a major character. I thought everyone knew that. And of course Lion King killed off Mufasa. Fox and the Hound killed off Tod's mother. And Brother killed off Sitka (the older brother).

I didn't like it that much honestly. - htoutlaws2012

57A Goofy Movie

What is this film doing down here? It's the best film Disney ever made. It's funny. Has awesome characters and an interesting storyline. Max is a great character and his character development is good as well.

It made me laugh, and I'm in my teens. I love this movie. I'm glad Roxanne forgave him too.

Love the movie, it's so funny and it never gets old still makes your day.

I watched this yesterday. Always loved it. Whenever I think of Goofy, this comes to mind first. - BKAllmighty

58Brother Bear

Love this movie, can watch it thousands of times, in future will surely make my kids watch it

So beautiful yet sad and sweet. Far deeper than most since it doesn't have anyone "evil" or villain, it's just about the battle of hatred inside each person and the lesson to learn of understanding about everything living. A piece of art!

Really? This film should be in the top 20! I love this movie and what I love about it the most is that it doesn't revolve around a love story and purely focuses on family :) On the other hand, Brother Bear 2 was pretty awful in my opinion...

Used to love this movie

59Meet the Robinsons

This was such a great movie! The characters were all so unique and the theme was brought in wonderfully! This movie is definitely getting onto my Christmas List!

I literally have lived my life off this movie, Keep Moving Forward, it has brought me out of who I was and helped me great what I am today. One day it will bring me to great success as an artist and computer scientist, and one day, I will be a legend in history!

I absolutely love this movie. Not only is it the best animated Disney movie, it's the best movie of all time. One time my brother and I rented it from the library, and we watched it probably about 20 times in the week we had it.

Possibly one of the most inspirational and meaningful Disney films I have ever seen. Not to mention that is is extremely funny!

Keep moving forward.

This is not really a Disney movie but is the best in this list. I guess most here haven't watched it.

Wait if anime is a type of from of Disney, than this should be in the top 10 lol. - htoutlaws2012

This is not a Disney movie, but I guess is the greatest animated movies of all times

Anime is crap - GriffinDoge
