Top 10 Most Overrated Disney Animated Movies

I should've made this list a long time ago! By the way, a movie being overrated doesn't make it a bad film.

The Top TenXW


We all knew this would end up on this list! Remember, just because something is overrated doesn't mean it's bad. Frozen is one of my favorite Disney films and even I think it's overrated. When it came out, people were treating it like it was the best thing ever! Honestly, it's not. It bothers me that Disney over exposes Frozen while Tangled is in its shadow. Tangled got just the right amount of praise that it should get. Frozen deserves the same amount of praise that Tangled gets! I know the songs in Frozen are better but it gets annoying hearing them over and over again. I still like some of them though. Frozen got a ride at Epcot and a stage show that replaced Aladdin at Disney California Adventure! Even has the tallest float in Paint the Night! They even had an entire event dedicated to Frozen at DCA! This movie is everywhere! But that's not enough to say that it's a horrible film. I like this movie a lot and I'm glad it won 2 Oscars. I just hope that with Moana coming out, that ...more - MegaSoulhero


I've gotten a lot of hate for constantly bashing on Hercules meaning a lot of people really like this movie. And yet people hate Frozen despite it having less flaws than Hercules. Subjectively speaking. Frozen has songs that people actually put effort into writing. Hercules has ONE song that had effort put into it. The rest are awful! I like Gospel music but why would they put it in a movie about Greek mythology!? Go the Distance is my favorite Disney song but it's such a shame that it was wasted on this film. I know their goal was to be more comedic with this movie, but the jokes totally fell flat. And the dialogue is terrible! The plot is also very similar to Superman. Hercules gets sent to Earth for protection, gets raised by a normal Earth couple, he eventually finds out who he really is, tries to become a hero, and meets a girl. By the way, Megara is voiced by Rose Quartz from Steven Universe. I really like Hades though! He's awesome and hilarious! But overall, this movie is not ...more - MegaSoulhero


Wall-E and Eve are so cute together! Wall-E is one lucky robot to find someone as hot as Eve! Anyway, Wall-E is a good movie, but I wouldn't say it's Pixar's best. I found the first 30 minutes to be quite boring. It didn't start getting interesting until Wall-E and Eve got on the ship. And even some of the scenes on the ship were just ok. The villain of the film is AUTO who's basically a HAL 9000 rip-off. In my opinion, AUTO is the most forgettable villain in any Pixar film! Also, I barely consider him a villain because he was just following orders! His job was to keep the Axiom from going back to Earth! The Earth, by the way, looked like trash! One little plant won't save it! So the fact that the captain tried so hard to go back to Earth doesn't make any sense! This movie has a 96% on Rotten Tomatoes and got nominated for six Oscars! Seriously? Like I said, Wall-E is a good movie but not great. - MegaSoulhero

4The Little Mermaid

The Little Mermaid is such a good movie! The songs are great and the scenery is beautiful! Ursula is also an awesome villain. So why do I think this movie is overrated? Because of Ariel! I hate Ariel so much! She is one of the worst Disney characters ever! She has absolutely no redeeming qualities! First of all, she is a hoarder! She collects things and doesn't even know what they are! How does she not know what a fork is but knows what lipstick is? And despite having all this "amazing" stuff, that's not enough for her! She wants to have legs and go up to the surface! She immediately falls in love with the first guy she sees! She then goes to Ursula and gives up her voice to be with a guy she doesn't even know! She meets Eric and he takes her into his castle that apparently doesn't have any paper or pencils for Ariel to communicate! Stuff happens! Triton sacrifices himself to save his daughter! Ursula is defeated and Ariel gets to keep her legs and marries Eric despite everything ...more - MegaSoulhero

5Fantasia 2000

The original Fantasia is my all time favorite Disney movie! Fantasia 2000, however, is just good. And to me that's disappointing because the original was amazing! For some reason, people say this is just as great as the 1940 movie. I've even heard people say this one is better. But this was a huge step back from the masterpiece that was 1940's Fantasia! I felt like the celebrity cameos were totally unnecessary and forced! The animation segments in the film are still pretty entertaining. It's great to see them using CGI. But my main problem is that only three of the segments matched the music. And one of them was the Sorcerer's Apprentice which we already saw in the original. Also, why is it called Fantasia 2000!? It came out in December 1999! If they waited a couple of weeks to release it, it could've been the first animated film of the new millennium! As it's own movie, it's pretty good. But as a sequel to Fantasia, it's disappointing. - MegaSoulhero


! THE INCREDIBLES WAS SO AWESOME! I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE HOW PIXAR IS GONNA TOP THAT! Oh. A movie about talking cars. Interesting. I don't hate this movie, but Pixar is known for making such amazing films! When I go to see a Pixar film, I have high expectations for it! This one was slightly disappointing. I mean, seriously? A movie about talking Cars? I guess it worked out for them since it turned out to be successful. But that's mostly because they can sell a lot of toys with this movie. I like this film but it's not something I would watch over and over. The story is a little weak and there are parts that are clearly put there to make the movie longer. This movie is like 2 hours long. Lightning McQueen is a great character and Mater is tolerable in this movie. The rest of the characters I couldn't care less about. The ride at Disney California Adventure is awesome by the way! This is a decent movie, BUT THEN THEY DECIDED TO MAKE AN AWFUL SEQUEL! Why John Lasseter, why? - MegaSoulhero

How Is This Movie Overrated? , Its Underrated, Finding Dory And Finding Nemo Are Overrated - VideoGamefan5


A great, great, great movie in every respect. - BeatlesFan1964

8Treasure Planet
9The Nightmare Before Christmas
10Atlantis: The Lost Empire

The Contenders

11Cars 2
12Lilo & Stitch

Just to be clear, I don't hate this movie. I like it but I don't consider it one of Disney's best. An alien lands on planet Earth, gets hit by a truck, ends up in an animal shelter, and gets adopted by Lilo who names him Stitch. She basically teaches him how to be Elvis Presley. Meanwhile, two other aliens try to capture Stitch. I feel like Stitch is the main reason as to why this movie is as popular as it is. I could be wrong though. Stitch is awesome but there are also times when he can be annoying. They even made a Disney World attraction about him which became the worst Disney theme park attraction ever! Lilo is a pretty good character. I like the fact she's voiced by the girl who voiced Sen from Spirited Away. I also really like Lilo's very hot sister, Nani! The relationship between Lilo and her sister is very nice but the alien subplot is kind of out of place for me. But this is still a good movie. I can't wait to go to Hawaii next year! - MegaSoulhero


From what I've heard, a lot of people seem to like this movie. Understandable since the scenery looks nice and the soundtrack is brilliant! But the story is uninteresting and the characters are bland! I watched this movie twice and I almost fell asleep both times! However, this movie has what is probably the most unintentionally funny moment in Disney history! Kocoum's scream! That part when Pocahontas and John Smith kiss and he sees it and does some sort of battle cry gets me every time! Also, Colors of the Wind is among my favorite Disney songs. But there is barely anything memorable in this film. It's also inaccurate considering there was no proof of Pocahontas and John Smith ever being a couple! Oh yeah, and how did Pocahontas learn English? Oh that's right! She learned it from... THE WIND! - MegaSoulhero

14Alice in Wonderland
15The Jungle Book (1967)

All I can say about this movie is that it's kind of boring. It's not bad but it's uninteresting. In my opinion, the 2016 remake was much better because it has a lot more stuff happening in it! In this one, not much happens. I guess the songs are ok. My favorite is Bare Necessities. Some things I also like about the film are the characters. They're very likeable and can get a few laughs. Winnie the Pooh as Kaa the snake is very hilarious! And then in the sequel, they got Jim Cummings to do the voice and he was also the replacement voice for Pooh. Does that mean Scarlett Johansson will be the next Winnie the Pooh? That would be awesome! - MegaSoulhero

17Monsters University

Overrated? Nah. Well for me, at least a bit, I quiet found this movie great, not the great but actually the best work out of Pixar(no offense). First off, the characters were too likable for me, they had deep character, lovely personalities and misunderstood problems. Not like Toys Story or Cars don't have these elements, they actually do but not as much as Monsters University. For me, MU is a lot whole better than MI. - xXLittleQueensXx

Monster University sucks! This and Cars 2 are the only Pixar films I hate! And something that both films have in common is that they are both horribly cliché! Cars 2 rips off every spy movie ever made whereas Monsters U rips off every college movie ever made! And I never liked college films to begin with. Also, I didn't find the jokes to be very funny. There were a couple of them that I laughed at but not enough. I really wish we got a sequel to Monsters Inc. instead of a prequel. Why do we need a film about Mike and Sully in college? The only good thing to come from the film was a hilarious short where Oozma Kappa throw a party. I don't remember what movie it came with but the short was very funny! I really expected more from this movie. - MegaSoulhero
