It Has 2 Sequels

2 Wreck-It Ralph

Yes, I totally agree, and fortunately, it is getting a sequel! The sequel is about Ralph and Vanellope going to the internet! I'm so excited to see what they're going to do with that! - SmashPrincess

It's actually getting one - MegaSoulhero

Its going to be out very soon

The next one looks hilarious.

3 The Sword In the Stone

1. According to AniMat, The Sword in the Stone is one of Walt Disney Animation Studios's weakest films. It's only decent, so if they were to make a sequel to this, let's hope the sequel is as whimsical as Merlin.
2. It wil officially exist. Wreck-It Ralph is one of the greatest animated blockbusters of 2012. Hotel Transylvania, Ice Age: Continental Drift and especially The Lorax will be nowhere near as good as these other two animated movies I mentioned. If anyone disrespects positive opinions on Studio Ghibli, the Wreck-It Ralph franchise and The Walt Disney Company (these companies' owner) in favour of Foodfight, Doogal and Where the Dead go to die, I will do more than be so furious that you have no idea.
3. Let's hope that Beauty & the Beast 4 will be a lot more engaging, kind-spirited, three-dimensional and less painfully animated than Beauty & the Beast: Belle's Magical World.
4. The Great Mouse Detective is really underrated for all the strong points AniMat says about ...more

4 A Bug's Life
5 Big Hero 6

Disney is so big that it has so much underrated, heartfelt, great gems. There is about as much Walt Disney Animation Studios as there is DisneyToon movies.

Definitely this one! But what would they call the sequel...?

Name it: Big Hero 7. - Not_A_Weeaboo

6 The Great Mouse Detective
7 Bolt
8 Treasure Planet

Jim still needs to find love, so there needs to be a sequel.

9 Hercules

I want to see hercules sequel

Pleas give hercules a sequels

I want to see hercules agen

10 Atlantis: The Lost Empire

Got a sequel but isn't knowledge

Isn’t there already a sequel? - NightJinx

A hiden gem

The Contenders

11 Brave
12 Cinderella
13 Dumbo

Why did the sequel get cancelled? It looked pretty good and interesting. This movie need a sequel. I mean a live action remake is nice, but it really deserves at sequel. Especially sense I think that this is the best Disney movie and the best movie ever!

14 Frozen

There's already a Frozen 2!

15 Lady and the Tramp
16 Meet the Robinsons

Not the best Disney movie but it's the 100 best disney movie

17 The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad
18 The Hunchback of Notre Dame

There is a sequel.

This movie has a horrible sequel

19 Oliver & Company
20 The Princess and the Frog
21 Robin Hood
22 Zootopia

Don't know if I want a sequel or a movie about what zootopia was going to be about, you know with Nick being the protagonist and the shock-collars it seems really interesting. - Gabriola

I’ll pass... - NightJinx

23 Inside Out

It should have a second for the fact that when a person grows up, people change, so how will Riley change as she goes to high school.

There should be a inside out 2 and it shall be a sequel,the timeline should be.riley is 20 and shes dating his future boyfriend,also,there should be a new emotion called love.that would make a great twist.that's all I have to say for inside out 2.also if the director of inside out read I don't know what will happen :D

24 Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

This does not need a sequel! It is perfect the way it is! Sequels and live actions ruin movies like sleeping beauty and malefcient for example, snow white is a magical Disney movie that should not be touched because its perfect - Disneyfan2005

Please Disney, make a sequel! I'm dying to watch it!

I would love a Snow White sequel. - Stevenuniversefangirl

Wait a classic Disney movie? She just lives happily ever after. Go and watch Snow White and the huntsman.

25 Mulan
26 Tangled
27 Lilo & Stitch

I love this movie so much.

This film deserves a better sequel because Leroy and Stitch,Stitch! The Movie and Lilo and Stitch 2:Stitch has a glitch all sucked! Those sequels were better than the Ice Age sequels though.

28 Wall-E

It’s amazing

29 The Lion King

Already is a sequel. - NightJinx

30 Ratatouille
31 Up

Up doesn't need a sequel. It already has a very good ending. - Not_A_Weeaboo

32 The Fox and the Hound
33 Bambi

It's true, a sequel was made and it focused on Bambi's relationship with his father and the time they spent together after his mother was killed. It was good, certainly one of the better straight to DVD sequels, but it's a shame we never got a third film focusing on his adulthood and following his offspring.

34 The Little Mermaid

It had a sequel and a prequel

35 Pinocchio
36 Chicken Little

Kinda does the movie wasnt as bad as stuck in the wringer in spongebob

37 The Jungle Book
38 101 Dalmatians
39 The Aristocats
40 Aladdin
41 Tarzan
42 Sleeping Beauty
43 Brother Bear
44 Fun and Fancy Free
45 The Emperor's New Groove
46 The Three Caballeros
47 Pocahontas
48 Winnie the Pooh
49 Dinosaur
50 Megamind

Who doesn't want this?
