Top 10 Disney Movies of 2000-2016

MegaSoulhero
In the past 16 to 17 years, Disney has had some pretty good movies.

The Top Ten

1 Zootopia

Oh there was a squeal alright- a squeal of annoying fans over how great this movie supposedly is and a squeal of rage from those not into lousy puns, social justice a la Tumblr, or Shakira. As for how is Wreck-It Ralph higher, it did address anti-bullying and prejudice but those weren't front and center with everything else felt like an afterthought. Frankly though Big Hero 6 should be ahead of both movies, but unless everyone stops worshipping Zootopia that's never going to happen.

What? How is Wreck-It Ralph higher? Zootopia has a lot of funny jokes, I was laughing through the entire film. This film is what Chicken Little should have been (actually Chicken Little was doomed from the start) As a 12 year old, and not a big fan of furries, I actually highly enjoyed this film. There are a lot of likable characters such as Nick Wilde. This movie got a 4.5/5 rating on Google Play and I think it deserved those ratings. Not only that but it's strong message about racism and two characters to represent it. Bunnies are seen as weaklings as foxes are seen as criminals. (Judy and Nick) I watch this movie all the time on my phone as I hope there will be a squeal.

That "strong message about racism" put me off of this movie. I watch movies to be entertained and to escape from the real word for a while, not have my nose rubbed in real-world issues under a so thin it doesn't exist veil of UNfunny jokes and an annoying song by someone who was never good.

Zootopia was so, so so good. And I didn't remotely expect I would like it. Gem outta nowhere.

2 Wreck-It Ralph

Back when Owl City was actually good. Wreck-it Ralph is a very creative and original idea. A bad guy in a video game is tired of being a bad guy and goes to other games to try to be a good guy. Well actually, he goes to one video game and gets a medal and then goes to a candyfied version of Mario Kart and helps and annoying little girl win a race. There are many references to other video games in this movie like Sonic the Hedgehog, Pac-Man, Super Mario Bros, Mortal Kombat, Pong, Dig Dug, Frogger, Centipede, Q-Bert, Tapper, and Tomb Raider. How did this movie not win an Oscar? - MegaSoulhero

This movie tackled prejudice much better than Zootopia. That it wasn't so in-your-face about it and it didn't feel like the "message" was priority one while plot, character development, and even music were afterthoughts certainly helped.

Yep! Wreck-It Ralph is one of my favorite Disney movies! Way better than Frozen! I hope Wreck-It Ralph gets a sequel! Can it reference Pokemon as well? - ModernSpongeBobSucks

I love this movie! I don't know if I have a favorite Disney movie or not, a ton of movies on this list are wonderful - Phillip873

3 Toy Story 3

Toy story is like one of the only movies that doesn't have bad sequels

As good as Toy Story was this is the only Toy Story movie I watch.

4 Finding Nemo

This is a classic and it also is my moms favorite

Yes! it's so amazing! - GingersplashPlays

Not only was this film the best Disney film of its year, decade, or of the century so far, Finding Nemo is one of the greatest film of all time. It's absolutely wonderful, and easily one of the greatest Pixar movies, and one of the top five animated movies ever. It may even be in the top 100 movies of all time (that I have seen, at least).

5 The Incredibles

Pixar at its best. The Incredibles is the first Pixar film where all of the characters are humans. Actually, they're not necessarily humans, they're superheroes. Mr. Incredible has super strength, Elastigirl is extremely flexible and incredibly irresistible, Violet can turn invisible and has a force field, Dash can run fast, Jack Jack can flame on, and Frozone is the male version of Elsa. I see the family as a better version of the Fantastic 4 plus Quicksilver. Especially since there has never been a good Fantastic 4 movie. - MegaSoulhero

This was my Childhood, and still is - GingersplashPlays

Best Disney movie, and the best animated movie (sorry fantastic mr. fox and MegaMind). No movie has ever had as much of a good plot, great characters, or notable quotes. "Where's my Super Suit!?

Cool - VideoGamefan5

6 Up

When I first saw the trailer for this movie, I thought I was going to hate it. This movie really surprised me. It's cute, it's emotional, and it's very lovable. Even though it's impossible to fly a house with that amount of balloons. As annoying as Russel is, I still like him. Definitely my third favorite Pixar movie. - MegaSoulhero

I loved Up! It was emotional and funny on the same time!

Deeply moving

7 Star Wars: The Force Awakens

May not be the best in the franchise but it for sure saved it

The force awakens is really really good I love it so much

Terrible movie, can't stress enough how much of a disappointment this movie was

WORST MOVIE!

8 Big Hero 6

A movie that has a multi-ethnic cast but does not emphasize that said cast is multi-ethnic or their individual ethnicities in any way for any reason? And actually has a good song that's inspirational (enough) yet doesn't sound like overdone girly-pop tripe from the mid-90s? Has funny moments but they seem natural rather than forced? Doesn't try much too hard to make you feel a certain way about any particular character? If only Disney made a movie like that- oh wait, they did. Big Hero 6 is that movie.

Big Hero 6 is an action packed movie based on a Marvel comic. And to even prove it is based on a Marvel comic, they have Stan Lee guest star. The movie is about college students who become superheroes to avenge the death of Hiro's brother, Tadashi. My favorite character is Gogo. She is hot. I also really like Baymax. He doesn't have a mouth and is basically expressionless but I actually ended up caring about him. This is also the first Disney movie to ever make me cry. BECAUSE OF HOW RIDICULOUSLY HILARIOUS THE FIST BUMP IS! Balalalalalala. Also, Fall Out Boy has a song in this movie. They are definitely the greatest band ever. - MegaSoulhero

Can everyone please forget Moralizing Animals for a moment and at least get this to #2 if not #1?

Was a great movie.So funny,animation was on point and so interesting and emotional. - milmcgirl

9 Inside Out

Ever wondered what goes on inside someone's head? Neither have I! But this movie is still amazing! It shows the struggle of growing up and adapting to a new city and all that stuff. I've been to San Francisco and that place sucks. I would not want to live there. The casting for this movie is also brilliant. Lewis Black as Anger was absolutely perfect. Disgust is my favorite emotion because she is absolutely hot. Fear was pretty hilarious. As for Joy and Sadness, eh. Riley is a very likeable character. Also, since when do girls play hockey? - MegaSoulhero

Great movie. All hail, Pixar are back! - Emlad2003

Beautiful. Just beautiful. All the emotions are likeable (especially anger, because relatableness) and Riley is a very realistic character. And the fact that there is no toilet humor is a big plus for me. - Absolite

Amazing movie! - galaco

10 Tangled

This movie probably has the best story I've ever seen in a Disney movie. The queen gets an illness and in order to be healed the king sends his soldiers to get a flower of gold that was created by a drop of sun. The queen gets healed and gets a baby with blonde hair. However, she gets stolen by a woman who wants to stay young forever. And then other stuff happens. Anyway, this movie is really good. There's only one song I like in it, though. The characters are great and the animation is gorgeous. This movie also proves that a frying pan can be used as a very lethal weapon. - MegaSoulhero

I love this movie way better then frozen

Amazing movie. Beautiful story and visuals.

Well obv this become my favorite number one Disney movie. It's funny yet romantic. Also I love rapunzel because she's the person I can relate to. She has this girly side but also an adventurous side. Hahha frying pans. lol. This movie got me the chuckles and rollingonethefloor laughter. THIS MOVIE SHOULD BE NUMBER ONE

11 Captain America: Civil War
12 Monsters, Inc.
13 Wall-E

Better message than Zootopia - Emlad2003

AMAZING MOVIE THAT MAKES EVERYONE FEEL GOOD ON THE INSIDE

GOOD MOVIE, IT WAS ALSO A WARNING FOR PEOPLE. LOVE THE EARTH.

YAS! - GingersplashPlays

14 Cinderella (2015)

Let it go Frozen, your time in the spotlight was up the moment Lily James shined as this ragged servant girl turned princess.

People talked about the lack of chemistry between 50 Shades stars Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan. That's underscored by the magical chemistry between Lily James and Richard Madden here. Plus for the ladies Richard Madden is in figure hugging white breeches.

Ever since Mia Wasikowska fell down that rabbit hole into Johnny Depp's Wonderland there have been quite a few live action Disney fairytales. This is one of those fairytales and even features an Alice alumnus, Helena Bonham Carter playing against type to be a fairy godmother to Lily James' ragged servant girl.

There's also a subtle Downton Abbey casting gag here with Lily James aka Downton's Lady Rose having to wait hand and foot on Sophie McShera aka Downton's Daisy the cook.

15 Guardians of the Galaxy

The thing that gave us Chris Pratt and how he's the male Lily James.

16 Marvel's the Avengers

Even this everyone knows its marvel.

17 Ratatouille
18 Finding Dory

This movie is AMAZING!

I want to see it so bad. - Powerfulgirl10

19 Iron Man 3

Marvel is Disney. That's why it's on here.

1st thing. ITS MARVEL STUDIOS! NOT DISNEY! The only good Disney movies are pirates of the Caribbean!

What the what! Iron man 3 why is it here? Its Marvel, everyone knows that even 5 year olds know it.

20 Avengers: Age of Ultron
21 Cars

I know it’s really more of a Pixar movie but I still say this is one of Disney’s best movies and the best of all the Cars films.

22 The Princess and the Frog
23 Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl

Ahoy, me mateys. If you have been to Disneyland then you have probably been on the ride, Pirates of the Caribbean. Apparently, the ride was so popular that they decided to make a movie based on the ride and decided to cast Johnny Depp in the lead role. Last year, I actually saw Johnny Depp in person at D23 and he was dressed as Jack Sparrow. Curse of the Black Pearl is definitely the best of the Pirates films. I also happen to like the sequels (except At World's End). They're even making another sequel which will be released next year. I'm looking forward to. It's a pirate's life for me. - MegaSoulhero

24 Brother Bear
25 Saving Mr. Banks
26 Alice In Wonderland (2010)

Recently there has been this trend of live action fantasy epics based on timeless stories. This pretty much kicked off the trend.

In other words, if Mia Wasikowska didn't fall down that rabbit hole into Johnny Depp's Wonderland we probably wouldn't have had witnessed Angelina Jolie cursing an infant or Lily James attending Richard Madden's ball with help from her Fairy Godmother Helena Bonham Carter (who shows up here as The Red Queen).

27 Tomorrowland
28 Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest
29 Lilo & Stitch

I remember staying up really late just to watch this! I loved it. - GingersplashPlays

it

30 Maleficent
31 Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides
32 Moana

An instant Disney classic that represents rich Polynesian mythology/folklore.

33 Frozen

Ever wanted to let it go and build a snowman? This movie is wonderful! Haters can step off. I am aware the story doesn't make much sense but that doesn't make it a bad movie. Also, people say this movie has too many songs. Anyone who thinks that clearly hates Broadway musicals. In my opinion, there is only one bad song in the movie. Fixer Upper. But people don't complain about it because everyone hates it. Whereas people complain about songs like Do You Wanna Build a Snowman and Let it Go because they're popular. Idina Menzel is an awesome singer. This movie is overrated but I still like it. - MegaSoulhero

On my movie top 100 charts, this is now #24 - Btd

This is what child molesters watch.

The worst song of the movie 🎥 is Love ❤️ is an Open Door 🚪.

34 Enchanted

This is not like other princess movies. It actually seems to parody other princess movies. Basically, Giselle and Edward immediately fall in love, which makes sense since they were both in Superman movies, and Edward says they shall be married in the morning. Whenever I say that to a girl, I just get a restraining order. By the way, this movie probably has one of the best musical numbers ever. Also, if you thought Frozen was Idina Menzel's first Disney movie, you're wrong. She was in this movie too. But for some reason, they don't have her sing. What a waste. Nevertheless, this movie is very entertaining. - MegaSoulhero

I loved the "Love Rectangle" in this movie, with the 4 main characters all having their happy ending. :-) - clusium

35 Monsters University
36 Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End
37 The Odd Life of Timothy Green
38 Chicken Little

WHY IS IT ON THIS LIST IT SHOULD BE BURNED WITH FIRE

LOL THIS IS SO AWESOME SHOULD BE NUMBER ONE

39 The Lion Guard: Return of the Roar

A horrible film, which does not deserve to be the "best" in anything. The series sucks, too.

This film sucks.

Too many levels so yeah - SpencerJC

40 Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
41 Bolt
42 Disney's a Christmas Carol
43 The Jungle Book (2016)
44 Brave
45 Meet the Robinsons
46 Oz the Great and Powerful
47 The BFG

So true watch it! Then get it on DVD. That good.

48 Rogue One: A Star Wars Story
49 Beverly Hills Chihuahua
50 Planes

This film is never supposed to be the number 1 worst Disney movie of all time ever. This film is one of the number 1 best Disney films of all time. The Cars trilogy and the Planes movies are better than the crazy bad sad movie Mulan. Can everyone who loves Cars trilogy and Planes movies help me by saving Cars trilogy and Planes movies please? #SaveCarsTrilogy and #SavePlanesMovies.
