Top Ten Best Animated Disney Movies of the 21st Century


The Top Ten

1 The Incredibles

Not only a great animated movie, but one of the best superhero movies I've seen, right up there with movies like Spider Man 2 and The Dark Knight. They managed to create a superhero universe, flesh out the characters, and tell a compelling story all in 1 movie. No excessive sequel setup, no skimping on the story for explosions or other effects, the comedy actually landed most of the time, and it was a very memorable experience. - Zach808

This and up are my favorite Pixar movies.

It is pretty good for a Pixar movie, but I really don't think it should get the one spot.

AMAZING. Best movie ever! VOTE,VOTE,VOTE

Saddest animation ever! It is hardhitting and brilliant. The first film I watched in cinema was bloody g force. That was going to stop me going to the cinema. This was the second film in cinema I watched. Loved it

A compelling story,great characters and a memorable villain,up was the complete package. - Lord28

6 Inside Out

This is a really good movie, it should be on second place - Martinglez

This is my favorite Pixar movie. I was surprised it was good, since it is Pixar.

Don't even get me started. Please and thank you. - Survivor101

7 Wreck-It Ralph

This one was super nice

This is my personal favorite animated movie, Incredibles and Big Hero 6 are close - Overlordofall


8 Zootopia

It's by second favorite movie next to only Big Hero 6, but it's new, so I'm surprised it made the list.

I love this movie cause it's so good. It needs to be much higher up on the list,

Pretty much everything about it is great. - JustAnotherAccount

Entertaining and you don't know what is going to happen and prettyy dark not for kids

9 Ratatouille
10 Tangled

This movie put Disney back in gear

One of my favorites

This is not that good

Awesome movie, one of my favourites

The Contenders

11 The Princess and the Frog

(Shoving Anna aside/down on the ground/floor/out of the way) Move over, Anna from Frozen!

Tiana all the way! (Kicking Anna from Frozen) Take that, Anna from Frozen!

This is the best Disney princess movie of all time

Best movie amazing music and heart

12 Frozen

Frozen? No No No. Take this off the list. Sure it's okay but I wouldn't say it is one of the best. The story is a little confusing and complicated. Doesn't really go together. Feels slapped together. The characters are all annoying to the point of not being able to enjoy them. (Olaf is the only original funny and decent character) and don't even get me started on Let It Go. If I hear it one more time I will explode. This movie makes me dizzy and my head almost explodes. This movie has conquered the internet

The animation is decent, but the characters and the plot are just terrible. Take this off the list. NOW. - yuki-blue

Who put this so high? I mean, it's an okay movie, but it's not the best. Probably a troll who helped lol

Why does everyone hate Frozen so much?! Someone who's still NORMAL explain this to me! If you hate it because there was no "Prince Heroic Action", and it was the sisters who saved each other, you people NEED TO GET A GRIP! IT'S THE 20TH CENTURY FOR CRYING OUT LOUD! geez Louise! Frankly, I LOVVVEE IT! (fight me)

13 Wall-E

Wall-E is and always will be the greatest movie of all time. - letdot52

Should be number 1

I like robots

Very sastified

14 Monsters Inc
15 Cars

Best of the cars movies and my fave sports film. Has lovely animation, great music and I really like the characters, especially Lightning and Mater.

The fact that this is not number 1 is ridiculous.

Love it! Is the best of the 3 films in this franchise and never gets old for me. The second was fun but a bit of a mess and the third is pure disappointment wrapped up in fancy animation. Just watch this one and you’ll be happy. Simple but good plot, likeable characters, cool race scenes and fun for all ages. Just it 😊

Best of the cars movies and not a horrible disappointment like the third one. A timeless classic of a movie. Love it’s simple but heartwarming story, beautiful animation, cool characters and music. πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–

16 Chicken Little

Wait hold on hold on. WHY IS THIS 18 IT IS TERRIBLE


17 Cars 3
18 Finding Dory

Another great movie, admittedly I'm like Dory myself (short term memory). - SailorSedna

Way better than Finding Nemo

19 Lilo & Stitch

Best movie

Came out in the 1900's

20 Disney's A Christmas Carol

This was one of the best versions of A Christmas Carol I've ever seen, though some comedic parts did feel a bit out of place. - SailorSedna

21 The Emperor's New Groove

I loved this movie, this was hilarious and amazing. - SailorSedna

22 Moana Moana

This is my favourite Disney film. Family fun and lots of catchy songs. This should be in top ten. Your Welcome!

This is a masterpiece

23 The Little Mermaid II: Return to the Sea

This one sucked. Lazy villain and story, and Tara Strong was wasted as that bratty Melody. - SailorSedna

24 Monster's University

Better than monsters inc for sure

This is better than Monsters Inc.!

25 Kronk's New Groove

Not as good as the first but still enjoyable and funny. - SailorSedna

26 Alpha and Omega

Not even disney!

An animated classic - WOLF13

27 Coco

Love this movie especially the part where Miguel returns from the world of the dead and gets Mama Coco not to forget about her Papa.

28 Tarzan II
29 The Fox and the Hound 2

This film was completely unnecessary. - SailorSedna

30 Meet the Robinsons

Awesome, excellent movie, one of my favorite modern Disney movies. - SailorSedna

WHY IS THIS NUMBER 22? It is my third favorite movie only to Zootopia and Big Hero 6! How dare they put it at number 22!

31 Mulan II
32 The Proud Family Movie
33 Planes

34? Seriously? My fifth favorite movie! (Besides Big Hero 6, Zootopia, Meet the Robinsons, Planes Fire & Rescue)

34 Cars 2
35 Lion King 1 1/2

What's this, another Lion King movie?

36 Bolt

I thought this was cool until I saw the concept behind it. One of the weakest films to come out of Disney. - SailorSedna

37 Brother Bear

Does anyone have any idea what this movie is?

38 101 Dalmatians II: Patch's London Adventure
39 Lady and the Tramp II: Scamp's Adventure

This film sucked, I got bored with it and the ending made Tramp and Scamp literal SOBs. - SailorSedna

40 Brother Bear 2
41 Brave

This wasn't that great. The concept didn't attract me in the first place, it didn't feel like Pixar, and hearing how terribly the director was treated doesn't help. - SailorSedna

This may be surprising to some, but this is one of my least favorite movies

It's a great story about a girl with a purpose for here life. What Dinsey mad it in a amazing way! One of the best Disney movies!

She's class

42 The Good Dinosaur

I wish that Spot could talk. He's my favorite character. (What were they thinking when they named the star character Arlo? )

43 Treasure Planet
44 Atlantis: The Lost Empire

This movie is a literal hidden gem. An excellent story, likable, charming characters, great animation, exciting action, wonderful music and an excellent voice cast including Michael J. Fox, Jim Varney and Leonard Nimoy. It's a shame this film is not more recognized, it's so underrated! - SailorSedna
