Best Disney Sequels

Disney has released many memorable movies. For some people, the sequels are a laughing stock. This is sad because Disney has actually created a few good sequels. They may not be like the original but they can be entertaining.

The Top TenXW

1The Lion King 2: Simba's Pride

The Lion King trilogy as a whole is genius and inspired by none other than shakespeare. Who better to model a story after? The lion king focuses on Scar's attempt to be king and how it greatly affects Simba. The lion king 1.5 shows us more insight into what happened during Simba's years with Timone and Pumba ( who we also learn more about in a hilarious manor) and really puts everything into perspective: the lion king Is really about finding happiness. It's about Simba's journey to happiness and realization that what happened to Mufasa was not his fault. Simba deserves to be king, it's his right. This movie is arguable the best as far as romantic/drama in the series goes. It follows Simba's daughter as she falls in love with Kovu, from the out lands. It's very romeo-juliet and the soundtrack is epic, the animation is exceptionally modern, and the storyline is just.. Well, genius. No doubt that the lion king two is the most worthy for the number one spot on Disney sequels. Its ...more

It's an amazing cinematic piece, it captures innocence, bravery, and strength all in one single movie. Not to mention the songs to go with it are amazing my favorites happen to be We are one as my favorite because of the vocal and musical qualities along with the underlying message it conveys and 2nd favorite as Love will find a way although nowhere near being up to par in any form with the originals love ballad, but even though the musical and vocal qualities are not of the highest caliber the underlying message is wonderful. It truly is a wonderful cinematic display although it is not up to par with the original Lion King.

Yes, this movie does have its faults and there are continuity errors from the first film, but most of those can be explained by decent fan theories. It's shaky, but it's still understandable. But, considering how bad Disney Sequels usually are, and that this was a sequel to The Lion King, of all things, it's actually pretty good. The songs, animation, story, and characters are all good, except for maybe Rafiki's solo, but that's debatable, and they did feature more comic relief in here, but it's not overdone. It's spread out through certain parts of the movie just right. It's beautiful, funny, heart wrenching, badass, and terrifying. I love it. And the fact that most of the original voice actors reprised their roles in this is awesome. Good job Disney! Two thumbs up!

This is one of those rare Disney sequels that are actually good. While it's not as good as the original, it's still an amazing movie. - Ghostbunny

2Toy Story 3

Toy story 3 is just great, it brings something just funny and then brings something deeply emotional, one of the only Disney movies I've cried in! - A Girl with Hope

How is stupid simba's bride better than this? Toy Story 3 is the best!

This is my favorite of the toy story trilogy BY FAR in my opinion! - HeavyDonkeyKong

Let's be honest, this is the BEST - DisneyQueen

3Toy Story 2

I don't understand how toy story 2 isn't higher on this list! It's an incredible movie, and a big part of my childhood. it introduced new characters while also extending the story arcs of characters presented in the first movie. 10/10

This movie is Pixar mainly, not Disney.

This movie needs to be number one its way better than most of the Disney sequels

My favorite Pixar movie! Also Star Wars References! Yay!

4Bambi II

I have to say I'm really impressed with this movie.
When I first saw the trailers for it, I wasn't really that interested at first. Years later, I remember seeing this and I finally decided perhaps I'll give it a chance. Well, it was worth it. I really this movie. It might not be as big as the first movie, but for what it is, it's really good! This movie even gave me more appreciation to Bambi as a character! I do recommend this to anyone, even if you are just looking for a good movie in general.

I can't admit that this beat the original from 1942, but that doesn't prevent from loving it still with the story. The story's great, and it gave me more appreciation to Bambi as a Disney character.

This was cute and I liked how it showed his relationship with his dad witch the original never showed.

This movie is so touching, it's so full of emotion, happy and sad! Great music and animation. I LOVED this movie!

5Cinderella III: A Twist in Time

I really love this movie. it is probably the best disney sequel! They really surprised me with anastasia's character and you got to know more about the prince and king. also it talks about the king's wife, the queen. its sweet. its romantic. its perfect.

I loved this movie! It has a great plot, and we get to see more of a personality for all of the characters: Cinderella, the prince, the king, Lady Tremaine, Anastasia, etc. Anastasia also had really great character development!

I loved this. You really got to know all the characters a lot better. I even think it's better than the first movie. It was more interesting than the first one.

I loved this idea of what would happen if cinderella was replaced with Anastasia.

6The Rescuers Down Under

This movie is seriously UNDERRATED, and should get more recognition. The characters, story line, animation, and the writing are all brilliant. It's superior to the original, and that is extremely RARE for a Disney sequel, which usually ranges from being 'just okay' to 'awful abomination' with MOST falling into the latter category.

Great movie. I prefer it over the original as I think it has a better storyline. The characters are very likeable and its quite the adventure. Even has a little romance.

This is probably one of the few GOOD movies in this list.. Why is this number 8? It should be 3 after the Toy Story Movies

I like the original rescuers but this is like 50 times better.

7Aladdin 2 - Return of Jafar

Whoever is saying Aladdin sucks, (cough cough** person below) you could not be more wrong. Aladdin is the perfect balance of adventure and romance, and teaches very good life lessons about being happy with who you are, and love someone no matter if they are rich or poor. Jasmine didn't love Aladdin for anything except himself, and who he was as a person. She was a princess, so she wasn't impressed with flashy stuff, since that's what she was used to everyday. She wanted something different, and someone who did not want to marry her because she was a princess, but for what kind of person she is. Aladdin fell in love with Jasmine in the marketplace, not knowing she was a princess, because she was wearing street clothes. When he found out she was a princess, he wanted to be with her because he liked her for herself, not because she was rich or a princess. It just made him want to impress her, because he thought she deserved the best.

Boring like the first and third movie, Aladdin sucks!

8Mulan II

I have watched the movie a few days ago. Really there was no way to continue the first movie. Though many people don't like the movie its outstanding. Who knows there can be a mulan 3 in progress. Mulan and shang are the best couple. You can watch the movie on a website called sockshare. Com

Mulan is my second favourite film of all time (second to Frozen) but I disliked the sequel. Mushu's personality was very exaggerated and Shang got angry much more easily then he should really have. The storyline was a little bit typical and not as interesting as the original film. - HollyRolo

No reason why not to love this movie, it's a great story and just as good as the first movie. Mulan 2 is a good movie to deserve a sequel.

No, just no, this movie was awful mainly due to the weak story. Oh and no Eddie Murphy!

9The Little Mermaid II: Return to the Sea

Saw this movie on video when I was little- before I even saw the first one! I loved it though! Had to vote for it since it was one of the first Disney films I saw! - Zollyzoo

This movie did not impress me. The original is so much better

I agree, Melody is my fave Disney princess. It was Ariel, but now Melody has taken over

This movie was great it should be higher than Mulan 2 because its way better!

10Aladdin and the King of Thieves

Easily the best story of any Disney sequel (as long as you don't include Pixar). Also Robin Williams returned as the Genie, and he was brilliant. And while it was not as good as the original's music, the music in this movie was good.

King of thieves may just almost be better than the first movie. Not the best but it's great.

11Lady & The Tramp II - Scamp's Adventure

This movie has great animation and a really nice storyline. I do think that scamp and angel are a little young though.

Lady and the Tramp was an AMAZING movie on its own, this degrades it

It is a great heartwarming movie!

12Lion King 1 1/2

I personally thought this one was OK. Not as good as Simba's Pride. - Ghostbunny

13Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest

Awesome story, awesome scenes, awesome music, and the Kraken is awesome. And the scene where the Kraken eats Jack is just... wow. Definitely one of the best Disney sequels.

14Finding Dory

This is how you do a sequel. The charm of the first movie is still here, and it expands greatly on a story arc that was there in the first movie, but left a lot of potential for a sequel. The emotional moments hit hard, the comedy sticks the landing, the characters are really memorable (even the new ones), and it's overall a great viewing experience. - Zach808

16Monsters University

This was a movie that should have NOT been a prequel, I wanted to see Boo grown up and reunited with Sully. That would have been adorable, who cares about them in college?
Opportunity missed Pixar!

Disney mostly did the story and Pixar was thinking about making a plot with them reuniting with Boo til Disney made Monster's University - QueenOffoxes

I underestimated this movie and it turned out to be very good - Mcgillacuddy

Awesome Even If It Is From Pixar.

17Return to Never Land

People are upset because Wendy is now an adult so the Peter Wendy couple is no longer possible. But this would have been true either way. Peter doesn't leave neverland but returns to it at the end of peter pan 1. This is simply a fun way to keep Peter Pan's story alive. I am all for a third movie about Jane's daughter and Wendy's gran daughter also going to neverland. The movie was very good, it didn't even feel much like a sequal, but more of a movie of it's own. Jane was also a great character. More interesting then Wendy at least (to me). To me all sequals that star new characters are the better ones because they feel like original movies. (Lion king 2, little mermaid 2, lady and the tramp 2 and this one)

I didn't really enjoy this movie... It's kinda boring plus, I think Peter Pan was just one of those movies that didn't need a sequel

I love this movie because Peter and Jane are a way better couple than Peter and Wendy. Wendy was a motherly figure, while Peter and Jane both had chemistry.

Captain Hook has the Kraken this time coming out to eat him. A KRAKEN!
