Top 10 Worst Disney Movies of All Time

Disney has gifted us with some of the most magical and timeless films ever made, creating a tapestry of enchanting stories that span generations. But, let's face it, even the House of Mouse has a few not-so-shining stars in its vault. If you find some of your favorites on this list, don't worry! Everyone's got a soft spot for a film that may not be a critical darling. Keep in mind that opinions are as diverse as the Disney fandom itself; what one person might consider a "flop," another might consider an underrated gem. And just like any list of "worst movies," this one might have some surprises that many actually enjoy. So go ahead and discover which of these films genuinely rank as your least magical Disney experiences.
The Top Ten
1 High School Musical

Okay, let me put it this way: this movie is so bad that it shouldn't even have been allowed to be a movie. And it really puts down many girls, because Ashley is so "pretty" and has a "cute" crush called Troy. Are you serious?! The storyline and plot are so rubbish! Whoever likes High School Musical needs to watch more films and get real...

This movie is dumb. Like, I thought musical movies stopped 50 years ago. I hate Ashley Tisdale because, one, she is a terrible singer, and two, she does the annoying voice of Candace on Phineas and Ferb. I guess Phineas and Ferb is an okay show, but Ashley Tisdale is dumb.

This is hands down one of the most overrated movies of all time! I hate the terrible singing and the horrendous voice acting! I'm so glad it's been almost a decade since we last saw this pile of trash trilogy on the big screen, and if they make High School Musical 4, I'm going to lose more faith in humanity.

2 Chicken Little

High School Musical is not a good movie, but there's no harm done or being done with that. This movie has the worst message in a Disney movie, as all they do is harass and torment the main character because he mistakenly led everyone to believe "the sky was falling". The pop culture references are obnoxious. At least "Let it Go" was original and kind of sounds nice. The only music in this movie is just pop music that is way too good even for this movie. And geez, the father is a prick. I'd much rather watch High School Musical, Cars 2, and Planes back to back than watch this movie for a whole minute. This movie is without question the worst Disney movie of all time!

This is one of the rarer cases where I used to love this movie as a kid. But now, the flaws are making this movie way harder to enjoy. I would safely say this is by far the worst Disney movie. Even High School Musical could not overtake it. At least it was meant to be a musical, even if it's cringeworthy.

Although Family Guy is now in the Rotten Cartoons category, I could forgive it, as it's hard to have a long series. Chicken Little, however, actually destroyed a beautiful tale, and smashed it with the morals: "Shun, attack and abuse the unpopular and praise the popular." I will never forgive that movie now, and this is on par with Foodfight as the third worst animated feature. Possibly even worse. Sorry if it used to be a guilty pleasure of mine, but this thing revolted me once I became 13.

3 Mars Needs Moms

No wonder this movie bombed so hard at the box office. This is the worst Disney movie I've ever seen! As bad as Chicken Little is, it at least has some funny moments and okay animation. The characters in Mars Needs Moms have some of the most disgusting designs I've ever seen. Are these characters monkeys?! They don't even look like humans or aliens. Milo is such a brat, and hearing him say he wishes he never had a mother made me want to go into the screen and break his neck. And haven't we had enough of these movies about characters getting into a fight, something bad happens, and they have to find each other?! This movie angers me every time I think about it, and I'm glad it bombed at the box office because it deserved it.

The fourth biggest box office flop in history, this movie is probably the most forgettable Disney movie of all time. This was Image Movers' last animated film due to financial issues. I remember when they were popular for making Polar Express, A Christmas Carol, and Monster House. In this movie, most of the humans don't look like humans. The only character done right was that guy named Gribble. I think nobody should watch this.

4 Hannah Montana: The Movie

I watched Todd In The Shadows' review of this film a couple of years ago and let me say... it clearly spoke to me and addressed the various flaws of this film very well. I just didn't like how the city people in California were very valley girl-like and whined about everything (even Hannah Montana herself was this way at the beginning of the film) and how the country people in Tennessee were either inbred or actual welcoming people... or both. This film really loves to show all the stereotypes of the Southern United States... and it's clear to see why. I think the "best of both worlds" message in this film was either between Hannah's personality... or different lifestyles. Also, yeah, I felt that the songs in this film were generic as all hell, even though the "hip-hop hoedown" song in this film is so bad it's good, in my opinion. But, you know. This film just plain sucked.

I don't get the plot of this show AT ALL. So, she's a teenager who is really a pop sensation, and the only person who knows it is her best friend? And the only difference in the way they (Hannah Montana and Miley Cyrus) look is an ugly blonde wig? How can a wig cloud your eyes into thinking that you are seeing two separate people, but actually they are EXACTLY the same (apart from the wig)? Oh yeah, and when I listen to Miley I want to tear out my pancreas.

5 Teen Beach Movie

Imagine "West Side Story," "Hairspray," "Back to the Future," "Beach Party," "Rocky Horror Picture Show," "High School Musical," "Enchanted," "Grease," "The Wizard of Oz," and "Beach Blanket Bingo" all rolled into one. That is "Teen Beach Movie." The characters have little to no personality. The musical numbers are mediocre at best, and the story is not original at all. It ripped off some of my favorite movies of all time! They shouldn't be allowed to call it an "original" movie since it's anything but original. The only thing I like about it is the character Mack. She is the only character I can actually tolerate in this poor excuse for a movie, and I think her character pretty much saved the movie.

What happened to the old Disney Channel movies? Smart House, The Thirteenth Year, or even Luck of the Irish. I watched this movie because of my sister. I really don't understand why it's so popular. Do 8-year-olds need to have boyfriends/girlfriends? It's putting an impression that they should have one because their favorite movie character has one. The movie wasn't all that great anyways. The acting on Disney Channel sucks now...

6 Home on the Range

This movie is definitely the worst animated Disney classic out there. There is basically zero soundtrack, poor leading characters, and a boring plotline. This movie feels like something that has already been done by a low-quality studio, not someone as highly respected as Disney. At least you can laugh at Chicken Little as a joke, but this movie has no action or humor. Every five seconds you wish the movie was over! There are some really bad Disney movies out there, but I don't think there is a way to be worse than this garbage.

Okay, this movie was bad, and I think this is the reason Disney stopped animated movies. No, it wasn't Princess and the Frog. It was this. I know it came out first, but damn, this movie was terrible. Not only that, but the characters suck. They are so unlikable.

Why do people love this movie? It was too sappy and stupid. There were also a lot of things that were shown in this that really shouldn't be shown in a kid's movie. And the songs just make me want to rather stare at a brick wall!

7 Planes

Fun fact: I was one of those people tricked into believing that this was a Pixar film. It's not even made by Pixar, so what happened? It was advertised as the next big thing after "Cars," but I saw it in theaters, so... yeah, the sequel is miles better than the original.

It all starts with a prologue where nothing of substance happens, also portraying Dusty as Lightning McQueen without any personality or charm. Then, when the tour around the world plot unfolds, it results in a massive plane crash. Ripslinger is extremely unlikable, and many of the racers were stereotypes of their own countries, with El Chupacabra being the most obvious (some Latino people in the theater were groaning when I watched the film). Then it has the absolute nerve to include an intense moment, like, what? But, you know, there were some things I enjoyed about this film, like the "SkyPad" scene and the soundtrack.

8 Frozen

Look, this movie isn't awful. And if anything, it definitely beats a few overused tropes Disney used over the years. One of them being that you shouldn't marry someone you've just met. Plus, Let It Go is pretty catchy. I also loved how instead of the generic true love's kiss, it was about sisterly love.

However, this movie still gets way too much credit. So, if anything, this movie is just overrated. Many people also try to make a big deal out of Elsa possibly being a lesbian since she has shown no interest in men, while it could just be argued that she wants to be single. People love her because of her powers and dress. Sure, they're cool and all, but there's no need to make a big deal out of them. Either way, this movie isn't the worst thing ever made, but I hate seeing it overshadow movies that are clearly better.

Anna and Elsa are the worst role models ever. Anna and Elsa played with magic in their castle when they should have been sleeping. Anna falls for a man she met for a few hours. Elsa isolates herself from the world when she accidentally reveals her magic. Anna chases Elsa without thinking it through and ends up being struck in the heart. Only an act of true love can save her, so she goes to Prince Hans and tries to get a kiss from him. However, Anna wasn't using an act of true love. She was being self-centered and only thought of herself when she tried to get Hans to kiss her. Frozen is the most overrated movie ever.

9 High School Musical 3: Senior Year

Oh my gosh, I'm watching this with my 8th-grade class as our prize for a reading contest. I first watched this at a birthday party in first grade and hated it. Two hours wasted of my childhood.

Ugh. Why did this movie musical even deserve a trilogy? It's like a musical version of 'Twilight.' Worse, because of all the singing and cheesy choreography.

This movie honestly sucked, and the originals are a whole lot worse.

10 High School Musical 2

Honest to God, this movie is super cheesy and not worth a cent. Disney wastes way too much time in the recording studio making these rubbish movies that nobody gives a rat's ass about.

The problem with this movie is that it sucked, and Disney mashed these different stars into this godforsaken movie. Ashley Tisdale, Zac Efron, Vanessa Hudgens.

You take a movie that is a pandering high school drama that is mediocre at best, give it a sequel, and this is what you get!

The Contenders
11 G-Force

This movie is probably the most immature, childish movie Disney has ever created. It has pretty much every poop and fart joke you can imagine. Here's what the conversations were like back in that small period of time when Disney was making these kinds of movies:

Disney Executives: If we add as many poop and fart jokes in this movie as we can, it'll entertain people for sure.

Me: Yeah, maybe it'll entertain all the 2-year-olds watching, but newsflash: YOU'RE Disney! You're like one of the only two animation studios that actually try to make movies that aren't just made for little kids.

Here's a little "Yin-Yang" situation, where a good anime from Tatsunoko turns into a Disney "badaptation" (bad and adaptation combined) that has nothing to do with Tatsunoko's original show.

I found G-Force to be below average, but not god-awful. The fart jokes and pop culture references are obnoxious, and the plot is stupid, but the action scenes are really fun to watch, and the voice acting is okay. I think this movie is better than those god-awful Alvin and the Chipmunks movies, but it's still not very good.

12 Inspector Gadget

Some of the movies on this list are Disney Channel originals, and some are not. This 1999 live-action adaptation of the popular cartoon show is one of them. They made two of these subpar movies, by the way, but I guess you only wanted to include one because this movie was definitely horrible! Even with Matthew Broderick as Gadget.

I LOVE Inspector Gadget, but I hate this movie. It's a disgrace to the franchise. If you want to introduce someone to the series, show them the cartoon for the real Inspector Gadget, not this trash Disney calls a "movie." In fact, Quimby should have given Gadget the mission to find this movie and lock it up before Dr. Claw finds it, because this movie is the root of all evil.

To quote the Nostalgia Critic, this film has three components: Doctor Claw is seen all the time when in the show you never see him, the editing/effects are awful, and the Matthew Broderick formula is "Slapstick Huh Idiot."

13 Cars 2

The fact that this was a Pixar movie is so surprising to me. Normally, Pixar makes amazing movies, but this felt more like a cash grab than a Pixar movie. While the action scenes are fun to watch and the animation looks fantastic, having Mater as the focus felt unnecessary.

I felt this movie would've been a lot better if the film focused on Lightning McQueen instead of Mater, that way we could learn more about the events taking place after Cars 2. Luckily, Cars 3 was able to make up for this movie and was a lot more fun to watch due to focusing more on Lightning McQueen.

Umm, this movie proved to be Pixar's lowest point. While the first film was good enough, it had charm and a lot of emotional moments, like the backstory of Radiator Springs. Cars 2, however, just went "screw that" and turned the sequel into a spy parody.

And while the first film kind of ripped off Doc Hollywood, having a similar premise, it at least tried to be original. This film tries to be a James Bond-style spy film but ends up failing. Having Mater as the protagonist of the second film is always a bad idea, as he served as comic relief in the first film. His redneck behavior really sticks out like a sore thumb in this film.

While I liked a lot of parts Mater was in, such as the Japanese restroom scene (Mater screaming is just hilarious) and the parts where he was in Paris, this is just a zero-substance Pixar film with nothing to write home about.

14 The Wild

This is a horrible ripoff of Madagascar! It's the same storyline (I loved the Madagascar movies, but I hated this movie). Animals are in Central Park. They leave in the middle of the night. They are put on a ship to Africa (or Madagascar since Madagascar is in Africa). They have adventures and then try to return to New York! It was too cheesy! It's like the creators weren't even trying with this movie! All it was about was a lion trying to find its son in Africa, but it was trying to get a good roar only! Also a ripoff of Dumbo! 50% ripoff of Madagascar and 50% ripoff of Dumbo!

I used to have a GBA version of this game. I don't know why, I don't know when I got it, and the only thing I remember about it is when I got stuck at a part where you have to fight off penguins flying at you from all sides. It was not the most normal game, to say the least.

This movie is nothing but a blatant rip-off of Madagascar. It's one of those Disney movies that not many people know about, and it deserves that. I remember going to see this film when I was 11, and I hated it. I knew that this movie would be bad from the start. I could tell by the trailer it was just a cheesy knock-off. The only reason I went was that my parents forced me to go. -TheWetWalrus

15 The Cheetah Girls 2

Disney makes all these dumb, stereotypical teen girl movies to try and attract girls to watch their movies, but it's all really stupid. Remember when Disney animated their own stuff and actually had good actors? Not anymore. This is basically Hannah Montana all over again.

It's really a lame version of a Bratz movie, in my perspective. They have poor talent, and this movie is just too snobby. I feel that Disney should be ashamed of making this film.

The characters were hard to relate to, and it was very cheesy. All three of these movies were. I think Dorinda (the blonde one) was the only good character because some people could relate to her and her backstory.

16 Camp Rock

In my opinion, this was just another rip-off of High School Musical. Disney should be ashamed to have released this rubbish. The characters are fruity, and the Jonas Brothers suck.

Firstly, this movie was cheesy as can be.

Secondly, this movie was nothing but untalented kids playing randomly.

Thirdly, what is Home on the Range doing at number 8? This should be number 4 at least!

This movie is literally a piece of crap. There is no plot, just some stupid love story that no one cares about. The girl Mitchie is so annoying and fake, and I swear to God she is the worst actress I have ever seen. Maybe this movie could have potential if she wasn't the main character and there was no ridiculous love story.

17 Pocahontas II: Journey to a New World

I did like the first Pocahontas movie, to be honest. Then, they made this dumb sequel. Why is it dumb? You'll find out.

First of all, Pocahontas had a good ending to it, so they should've just left it alone. But no! They made Journey to a New World. Basically, Pocahontas travels to England after hearing about John Smith's death. Later, we find out he's not dead!

She also meets John Rolfe. I know that they did get married in reality, but I still don't like them as a couple. Why? Because Pocahontas admitted that she loves John Smith.

Also, Governor Ratcliffe returns. His design is just god-awful. What's with his mouth? The animation is terrible, the characters are fools, and the songs in this movie are complete garbage!

Why would Disney go and ruin such an awesome classic?!

It basically ruined the masterpiece that is "Pocahontas." They made her narcissistic, cold-hearted, and shallow. What happened to the amazing ending of the first movie that showed us how she had to make a choice between her love and her roots, putting Willow's advice to heart, which made us so emotional? The love for her family, country, and John Smith was neglected and ruined by this silly sequel. I wish I hadn't seen it.

18 Brave

I didn't like Brave so much. I like some of the top ten movies on this list better than Brave, mostly because Brave has nothing to like about it. There are only a couple of funny moments, and a lot of the moments are supposed to be funny but aren't. There's also a lot of mindless shouting and crap, and I didn't like all that war stuff the king was holding in the room. Also, it's just not classic enough. It is just too far out of the box.

Ugh, this movie is so stupid. Why? Here are my reasons: 1) Merida did not get married or have a love interest. 2) A tomboy princess, really Disney? Is that the best you can come up with? And 3) She wasn't classic enough. Even Tangled was more classic than Brave, probably because Tangled is loosely based on Rapunzel, and I don't think Brave is based on anything. Those are my three reasons why Brave is stupid!

Someone chose Brave as the Best Animated Feature Film, and not Wreck-It Ralph. Ralph was the best animated Disney film to use video game crossover, not Brave, which is bad.

19 James and the Giant Peach

The book was so much better. Whenever Disney makes a movie based off a cartoon or a book, they absolutely mess it up. The characters and movements were ugly, and it was very unrealistic. I know that Disney's all about magic, but most of their magic movies make sense.

This should be where Frozen is at #4. Frozen is actually good! Bash this instead!

This freaked me out. I liked the book and all, but the claymation is creepy in the movie.

20 Beauty and the Beast: Belle's Magical World

The first film is one of the best Disney movies of all time. This, however, is just crap. It has terribly cheap animation, a boring plot, it's very childish, and it's one of the worst Disney movies I've ever seen. Belle goes from an intellectual, kind girl to an idiotic housewife. I can't understand why this became a movie.

The most entertaining part of this movie was when I went to the toilet about forty minutes in and found myself not wanting to go back downstairs to catch the rest of it. My toilet is more exciting than this movie, which is what I'm saying.

Jesus Christ, why is "Frozen" #7 while this is #23? I'm not a fan of "Frozen" either, but they straight-up bastardized the "BATB" characters we love in this so-called "sequel"! Even the original's remake is better than this!

21 Inspector Gadget 2

My redeeming quality from this terrible sequel is the villain Dr. Claw never shows his face on screen. Credit to Alex Zimm for making this character hidden.

This movie doesn't deserve to be considered a sequel and should just be renamed 'Inspector Garbage.' This is an embarrassing excuse for a movie and was indeed far worse than the first one.

Give this movie some credit. At least it had the decency to never show us what Dr. Claw looked like (a positive quality that the first one never had).

22 Blank Check

The fact that this steaming pile of garbage is ranked lower on this list than Atlantis makes me lose a lot of hope for the face of humanity.

It's hard to believe that Disney would sink so low in the exact same year they released The Lion King.

This movie is to Home Alone what The Wild was to Madagascar, as well as what Zoom was to Sky High.

23 Atlantis: The Lost Empire

Atlantis made no sense at all. The pink octopus thing has a dog's nose for some reason, and whenever the characters talk, it didn't match their mouth movement at all. The animation was weird, and the songs were cheesy! This movie was just too confusing for me. I don't get it, and it had bad animation, poor lip-syncing, and even bad voice acting.

Treasure Planet is WAY better than this sci-fi crap! Atlantis has some scenes that feel so unnecessary, like the kraken scene. I hated the voice actors for this film. It is very bland, and sometimes, it doesn't even make any sense! However, it is an improvement from Chicken Little and Home on the Range.

Once again, how can this piece of crap not make it, yet they have The Lion King and Oliver & Company? This crap didn't even HAVE songs! And it's BORING! More boring than Home on the Range even! This belongs in the Top 20.

24 Planes: Fire & Rescue

The first Planes movie was absolute crap. This one was better but still overrated. The good thing about this movie is that it's somewhat original, unlike the first movie, which was unoriginal and a Cars ripoff. The bad thing about it is that some characters, like Dipper and Cad, are stupid and annoying, and probably the side characters as well.

I think it's better than the first one, but it's not Disney's best.

Cars sucked, Planes went beyond suckage, and there are no words to describe how terrible this movie is.

25 Teen Beach 2

Disney: Hey, let's make a sequel to one of our crappiest and god-awful movies just to cause even more people to commit suicide!
Disney Channel: GREAT IDEA! Better get those puke buckets ready!

It puzzles me how the first movie is incredibly stupid, then a sequel is thrown out there, and it's much better than the first.

This one is worse than TBM! It ended with Brady and Mack not knowing each other. Confusing and really dumb movie. Sorry, not sorry, but this is crap.
