Top 10 Disney Movies that are Good but Overrated

There are movies that are pretty good but also get way too much praise. So let's talk about good Disney movies that are overrated!

The Top Ten Disney Movies that are Good but Overrated

1 Moana

I like Frozen better and it's not that I don't like Moana I just can't get through Where You Are when I watch Moana

The "stupid snowman" was replaced with a stupid chicken. And you CAN like something without saying "it's better than Frozen" with or without the word "way"; "(way) better than Frozen" has long since lost any meaning due to overuse and abuse.

People overrate this just BECAUSE they hate Frozen. I'm tired of Frozen myself but not enough to over-praise what's pretty much a remake set in the tropics.

It's still young, give it some time and we'll see if it's still, ahem, overrated.

2 Frozen

I like this movie and I consider it one of my favorite Disney films! But is Disney seriously still making a big deal about it after three years? I know it made billions of dollars but it's not as good as films like Lion King and Aladdin. This movie has gotten so popular to the point where people start to hate it. I mean, sure people give reasons but then they praise movies that have the same problems. Like Moana! Frozen's oversaturation doesn't exactly make it a bad film. Some people go as far as to saying it's the worst Disney film ever. Yeah there are really people who think Home on the Range is better than Frozen. Frozen has great songs, great characters, great animation, and a decent story. But it has really gotten out of hand. - MegaSoulhero

I love this movie and I always will. It's just that Disney shoved it down our throats so much to the point where it became mainstream to hate on it. In all actuality, it's really hard to call Frozen a terrible movie. What people really hate is the marketing for it, not the actual film. I'm just hoping that Disney doesn't obnoxiously promote the crap out of Moana. We don't need another great Disney animated musical to be ruined by its overexposure. - phillysports

A pretty good movie overall, but quite overrated. Still, the hatred it has received is mostly unwarranted. - Mrveteran

I really don't like this move, because like Moana it gets dull after Elsa strikes Anna's heart. The end is very cringey and I hate how it has an inappropriate joke with Kristoff taking off his clothes. The Trolls were annoying and ugly, and Olaf was annoying, but worst of all was Elsa. Anna is the real hero, yet she is undderrated while Elsa is OVERrated. Elsa did nothing good to contribute to the film, and she literally does...nothing until the very end! Even if she did do it everyone should thank Anna because it was Anna who taught her about love. - RedTheGremlin

3 Wall-E

A lot of people say this is one of the best Pixar movies! Some people say this is THE best Pixar movie! I personally don't see what the big deal is. I just want to point out that there are only two bad Pixar films. And this is NOT one of them! I like it but it has problems. I thought the beginning of the film was pretty cute. But it started to go downhill when Wall-E and Eve got on the ship. I really like the scenes involving Wall-E and Eve. The part when they are floating in space is my favorite in the whole movie! But how was that plant they had able to survive in space? Also, considering that the Earth looked like trash, it didn't make sense for the captain to make the decision of going back! Yes, they have a plant but that's not enough! I feel like AUTO was the real hero of the film. - MegaSoulhero

I absolutely adore this film. And I don't think it is in any way overrated. I just love how so much emotion is conveyed with no dialogue. Even though Wall-E and EVE couldn't talk, you could tell they were falling in love when they were floating in space. I also love that Wall-E would do anything, and I mean ANYTHING for Eve. He even sacrificed his own LIFE to get everyone back to Earth. Wall-E is such an adorable sweetheart and he's my favorite Disney character. And the animation and the music in this movie is GORGEOUS and BEAUTIFUL. - SmashPrincess

I really hate this film. the distant future we'll all be super FAT and UGLY and live in a spaceship? NO! I hate outer space and I'm scared of it, plus Eve is annoying and Wall-E is creepy, and so is his pet cockroach. - RedTheGremlin

This Film Is Good - VideoGamefan5

4 The Little Mermaid

This movie has great songs and great scenery, but here's the thing. I hate Ariel! She has absolutely NO redeeming qualities! I can't believe she disobeyed her father, gave up her voice, and put everyone in danger just to be with some dude! She is very selfish! Lol. Get it? - MegaSoulhero

Also, King Triton is much better than Princess Ariel. I am glad that Princess Arial is not the main focus of the movie. He is mainly sexy (heck, maybe even sexier than his daughters) because of his voice, hulky body and long face! - The Ultimate Daredevil

What do you mean it's overrated? This movie is a classic to people. This movie was legendary. - JimmyFarrow

It's a 8/10. - iliekpiez

5 Lilo & Stitch

Lilo & Stitch is a cute movie I guess. It shows the relationship of two sisters who live in Hawaii. Their connection is so relatable! And it wouldn't be complete without an alien experiment crashing to Earth! I like Stitch but it seems like this movie has two different plots that shouldn't go together. I feel like this movie's popularity mainly comes from Stitch. Everyone loves Stitch! Understandable since he's awesome. But I mostly like it for it's moral and setting. As well as some of the characters. Lilo and Stitch 2, however, is pretty bad! - MegaSoulhero

I love the original Lilo and Stitch. It was cute, colorful, clever, and funny! However, all of the other movies are really bad. They actually take away from the original, which is one of my favorite Disney movies. - RedTheGremlin

Stitch is EVERYWHERE! Only non-"Frozen" character to be merchandised to heck and back! "Underrated" my foot!

I think its underratred - iliekpiez

6 Big Hero 6

Feels more like part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe than the Disney Animated Canon

This film is the definition of "good but overrated". There isn't really anything bad about the movie itself, but people gave it way too much credit simply because the number of (human) white characters could be counted on one hand (not to mention that one of them was the now-traditional decoy villain and another was the actual villain) and it wasn't "Frozen".

All that was missing was a female protagonist with no romantic interest (or at least no romantic interest in males) and this would've been the SJW crowds wet dream. At the same time, unlike certain movies that followed (Zootopia, Ralph Breaks the Internet, and Star Wars Sequel Trilogy- looking in your direction) the pandering wasn't so blatant and shameless.

People made too much of the multi ethnic cast

7 Finding Dory

Why Isn't This Higher - VideoGamefan5

Holy Cow! - VideoGamefan5

Cringe alert...I hate this movie! It's so BORING and CRINGEY! But come to think of it...are there ANY Disney sequels that aren't cringey? But this one is by far the worst. I hate it even more that Mulan 2! Finding Nemo was amazing and one of my favorites, but Finding Dory is about my least favorite FN character and really is annoying throughout the film. It really takes away from FN. - RedTheGremlin

8 Aladdin
9 Mulan

It's one of those overly sexist films that pander to women

10 Cinderella (2015)

I really loved the original Cinderella movie! The 2015 live action remake was good too but I don't like how it objectifies women. Also, the main character, Ella, is awful! She constantly gets tormented by her stepsisters and stepmother and she doesn't do a thing about it! She has many chances to fight back but she always sees the good in people! But the scenery and effects make it hard for me to hate this movie. Plus, the prince is actually pretty likeable. Which is good because he was VERY unlikeable in the original! And I'm glad that the mice don't talk. This is not a bad movie but I still slightly prefer the original. - MegaSoulhero

The Contenders

11 Zootopia

It got way too much praise and rewards, all because it addressed a "timely" issue.

"the only reason why I like this it is because it doesn't have any songs" Maybe not within the movie proper, but there's still that annoying theme song by Shakira.

Considering people have shorter attention spans than ever, I guess talking about about a movie that came out 50 years ago doesn't make it overrated and talking about a movie that came out 1 year ago makes it overrated. Logic!

I liked it but certain scenes were way too dark, such as the mental asylum and the museum scene. - RedTheGremlin

12 Sleeping Beauty

I watched this movie once and I was kind of bored through some of it. The movie is called Sleeping Beauty but the actual sleeping beauty is barely in it! That is such a misleading title! The movie was mostly about the three fairies who protect Aurora but they're pretty annoying. The best parts of the movie are the scenes that have Maleficent. She is such an awesome villain! Definitely one of Disney's best villains! Too bad they completely ruin her in the 2014 movie! - MegaSoulhero

The live action movie is better than this it's so cliche and boring - Rucas

The fairies are the best parts. Maleficent is the real annoying character.

13 Wreck-It Ralph

Can we please all just like this movie without telling anyone else they need to go to hell or bringing up Frozen in comparison? That said, I don't think it's overrated, but I know why people might think so: Sonic wasn't in it enough for their liking, and there was too much focus on a game that was made up for the movie instead of going from real-world game to real-world game for ninety minutes.

Does getting an unnecessary sequel that just screams "we're trying too hard" count make something overrated?

This Film Is Awesome, - VideoGamefan5

This is a great, underrated movie and it is action-packed, emotional, warm, and special. But saying "[insert any movie here] is better than Frozen" has become extremely trite, and nobody needs to go to hell over not thinking it's trite or even for liking Frozen at all.

14 The Incredibles
15 Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

This very disappointing flick better than Moana? There were even comments about them saying Civil War was worse than Rogue One!

The comments such as "Rogue One should be higher than Moana! " on WatchMojo's list of best movies of 2016 get too much credit, but Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is pretty dark and also action-packed.

16 Fantasia 2000

I like this movie but it's just not as good as the original Fantasia! Fantasia is the best Disney movie ever created! So this was pretty disappointing. What is with the celebrity cameos? They are very forced an unfunny? The cartoons in this movie are also a huge step back from the cartoons in the original Fantasia. But it's nice to see the Sorcerer's Apprentice again! The original movie had segments that kept me invested throughout. The ones in this movie are good but not as good as they could be. But I commend them for trying to use CGI. As a huge fan of the original Fantasia, this one wasn't as great. - MegaSoulhero


I'm hoping this is a troll. If not, you need to grow up and reread everything.

17 Iron Man 3
18 Inside Out

I think that it is just a bit overrated but I still love it. - IcetailofWishClan

I hate/love it. 1. Is Riley a transgender? If not, then why does she have guys AND girls when everyone else's characters resemble them? 2. Too sad. 3. Joy was a butt to Sadness, who, by the way, was the only good character here. - RedTheGremlin

I hate this movie with a burning passion.

19 Tarzan

Tarzan is a very good movie! But I do have problems with it. One of those problems being the songs. Let me make something clear. I love the songs! But the problem is they don't really have any purpose in the film. They don't really move the story along. They're just there so this movie can have an awesome Phil Collins soundtrack. I also felt like some parts were a little rushed. But the things I liked about this movie are really great! Tarzan and Jane's relationship is very well done and the animation is amazing! I've only watched this movie once but I might watch it again. I haven't seen the Legend of Tarzan movie and I probably never will. - MegaSoulhero

Oh God change the picture! - Mcgillacuddy

20 Pocahontas

This isn't UNDERrated at all. SJWs use it as a weapon because it features an indigenous person, and a female indigenous person at that (just like they do with Mulan because it stars an Asian woman, The Princess and the Frog because it stars a black woman, and Moana because it stars a female Pacific Islander). Meanwhile, it takes so many liberties with the story of an actual person it's painful.

If anything, this wonderful movie is UNDERrated. Get it right. - RedTheGremlin

It has a 56% on RT. Not even close to overrated. - Mcgillacuddy

If anything, this wonderflly awful movie is OVERrated solely because of "woke"/PC/SJW culture. Get it right.

21 The Emperor's New Groove

I like this movie. - RedTheGremlin

22 Pinocchio

I remember I used to love this movie as a kid! I would watch it all the time! But I watched it again recently and it wasn't as good as I remembered. I honestly have no explanation for this. I just don't think it's as great as everyone makes it out to be. - MegaSoulhero

Best movie of all time, because dolphins know you are lying.

23 Toy Story 3

Great, touching, etc. this may be, I still think 2 was the better stopping point.

24 Avengers: Infinity War
25 The Avengers
26 A Bug's Life

I don’t like A Bug’ Life because it has way too many parts I don’t like

27 Hercules

When I saw this it was just torture.
Disney ruined an good story. - Duoprism

28 A Goofy Movie

This movie was cute, but it made me sad. - RedTheGremlin

29 Meet the Robinsons

How The Heck Is This Overrated? , I Mean Not Many People Talk About It So How Is It Overrated Exactly? - VideoGamefan5

30 Beauty and the Beast
31 Brave
32 The Princess and the Frog
33 The Lion King

It’s a good movie, in fact one of my favourites from Disney, but people treat it like it’s the best thing ever. - 3DG20

34 Monsters University
35 Coco

Yes, it is overrated but it still is an amazing masterpiece. Everyone in the theatre I went to enjoyed it... - Swampert02

36 Black Panther
37 Avengers: Endgame
