Top 10 Most Overrated Disney Animated Movies

I should've made this list a long time ago! By the way, a movie being overrated doesn't make it a bad film.

The Top Ten

1 Frozen

However, I feel sorry for poor Elsa because she didn't always get to use her ice magical powers all the time in canon at all. Some secrets are too cool to be kept secrets, aren't they? Including Elsa's ice magic powers! Those creators, directors, filmmakers and writers of Frozen could've at least had Olaf be created in Elsa's childbirth infancy and become one of Elsa's other long time friends in canon; maybe he could've at least been fairly portrayed to be the one to make Elsa realize that she can actually control her powers if she really puts her mind to it which it would've made Frozen a more believable, better, more classical film than ever but no, instead they just unfairly had to keep poor Olaf as this 1D not-so-funny character who doesn't easily really contribute anything to the Frozen movie at all, other than poor visual gags and a crappy song that doesn't need to be in the Frozen movie to move the plot along any so we're all expected to believe that Elsa who originally feared ...more

We all knew this would end up on this list! Remember, just because something is overrated doesn't mean it's bad. Frozen is one of my favorite Disney films and even I think it's overrated. When it came out, people were treating it like it was the best thing ever! Honestly, it's not. It bothers me that Disney over exposes Frozen while Tangled is in its shadow. Tangled got just the right amount of praise that it should get. Frozen deserves the same amount of praise that Tangled gets! I know the songs in Frozen are better but it gets annoying hearing them over and over again. I still like some of them though. Frozen got a ride at Epcot and a stage show that replaced Aladdin at Disney California Adventure! Even has the tallest float in Paint the Night! They even had an entire event dedicated to Frozen at DCA! This movie is everywhere! But that's not enough to say that it's a horrible film. I like this movie a lot and I'm glad it won 2 Oscars. I just hope that with Moana coming out, that ...more - MegaSoulhero

Oh, come on people. Frozen isn't "overrated". It's just the newest thing out there. People were singing " The circle of life" when the lion king came out, and "I have a dream" when Tangled came out. Just because a movie is good doesn't mean that it's overrated.

Elsa The Snow Queen should've been the canon title instead of Frozen!

2 Hercules

I've gotten a lot of hate for constantly bashing on Hercules meaning a lot of people really like this movie. And yet people hate Frozen despite it having less flaws than Hercules. Subjectively speaking. Frozen has songs that people actually put effort into writing. Hercules has ONE song that had effort put into it. The rest are awful! I like Gospel music but why would they put it in a movie about Greek mythology!? Go the Distance is my favorite Disney song but it's such a shame that it was wasted on this film. I know their goal was to be more comedic with this movie, but the jokes totally fell flat. And the dialogue is terrible! The plot is also very similar to Superman. Hercules gets sent to Earth for protection, gets raised by a normal Earth couple, he eventually finds out who he really is, tries to become a hero, and meets a girl. By the way, Megara is voiced by Rose Quartz from Steven Universe. I really like Hades though! He's awesome and hilarious! But overall, this movie is not ...more - MegaSoulhero

Why people always keep saying hercules is underrated movie? Really? When I ask someone what is your favourite movie the answer is hercules, every time! So, it's not underrated, for me after frozen the second most overrated is hercules. It's not bad movie but it's not so awesome as some people keep saying, I think there are a lot of better movies than hercules.

Great movie, but I HATE Hades. He makes the movie worse.

3 Zootopia

It's nothing special really. It just happened to have a well-timed social justice message which of course automatically makes it the best Disney movie if not just plain best movie of the last five years if not of all time.

People only like it because of its Message. Take away the liberal preaching and you've just got a big ball of cliche.

It's a cute movie, but I wouldn't call it a classic, but that's just me

4 Fantasia 2000

The original Fantasia is my all time favorite Disney movie! Fantasia 2000, however, is just good. And to me that's disappointing because the original was amazing! For some reason, people say this is just as great as the 1940 movie. I've even heard people say this one is better. But this was a huge step back from the masterpiece that was 1940's Fantasia! I felt like the celebrity cameos were totally unnecessary and forced! The animation segments in the film are still pretty entertaining. It's great to see them using CGI. But my main problem is that only three of the segments matched the music. And one of them was the Sorcerer's Apprentice which we already saw in the original. Also, why is it called Fantasia 2000!? It came out in December 1999! If they waited a couple of weeks to release it, it could've been the first animated film of the new millennium! As it's own movie, it's pretty good. But as a sequel to Fantasia, it's disappointing. - MegaSoulhero

5 Wall-E

Wall-E and Eve are so cute together! Wall-E is one lucky robot to find someone as hot as Eve! Anyway, Wall-E is a good movie, but I wouldn't say it's Pixar's best. I found the first 30 minutes to be quite boring. It didn't start getting interesting until Wall-E and Eve got on the ship. And even some of the scenes on the ship were just ok. The villain of the film is AUTO who's basically a HAL 9000 rip-off. In my opinion, AUTO is the most forgettable villain in any Pixar film! Also, I barely consider him a villain because he was just following orders! His job was to keep the Axiom from going back to Earth! The Earth, by the way, looked like trash! One little plant won't save it! So the fact that the captain tried so hard to go back to Earth doesn't make any sense! This movie has a 96% on Rotten Tomatoes and got nominated for six Oscars! Seriously? Like I said, Wall-E is a good movie but not great. - MegaSoulhero

6 Lilo & Stitch

Just to be clear, I don't hate this movie. I like it but I don't consider it one of Disney's best. An alien lands on planet Earth, gets hit by a truck, ends up in an animal shelter, and gets adopted by Lilo who names him Stitch. She basically teaches him how to be Elvis Presley. Meanwhile, two other aliens try to capture Stitch. I feel like Stitch is the main reason as to why this movie is as popular as it is. I could be wrong though. Stitch is awesome but there are also times when he can be annoying. They even made a Disney World attraction about him which became the worst Disney theme park attraction ever! Lilo is a pretty good character. I like the fact she's voiced by the girl who voiced Sen from Spirited Away. I also really like Lilo's very hot sister, Nani! The relationship between Lilo and her sister is very nice but the alien subplot is kind of out of place for me. But this is still a good movie. I can't wait to go to Hawaii next year! - MegaSoulhero

Most overrated movie ever I hate stitch he is not cute at all

7 The Little Mermaid

The Little Mermaid is such a good movie! The songs are great and the scenery is beautiful! Ursula is also an awesome villain. So why do I think this movie is overrated? Because of Ariel! I hate Ariel so much! She is one of the worst Disney characters ever! She has absolutely no redeeming qualities! First of all, she is a hoarder! She collects things and doesn't even know what they are! How does she not know what a fork is but knows what lipstick is? And despite having all this "amazing" stuff, that's not enough for her! She wants to have legs and go up to the surface! She immediately falls in love with the first guy she sees! She then goes to Ursula and gives up her voice to be with a guy she doesn't even know! She meets Eric and he takes her into his castle that apparently doesn't have any paper or pencils for Ariel to communicate! Stuff happens! Triton sacrifices himself to save his daughter! Ursula is defeated and Ariel gets to keep her legs and marries Eric despite everything ...more - MegaSoulhero

Your comment would be like mine and has received a like. I cannot believe that The Little Mermaid gets this much praise for having a one-dimensional, bitchy teenage girl?! - The Ultimate Daredevil to MegaSoulhero

8 Cars

! THE INCREDIBLES WAS SO AWESOME! I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE HOW PIXAR IS GONNA TOP THAT! Oh. A movie about talking cars. Interesting. I don't hate this movie, but Pixar is known for making such amazing films! When I go to see a Pixar film, I have high expectations for it! This one was slightly disappointing. I mean, seriously? A movie about talking Cars? I guess it worked out for them since it turned out to be successful. But that's mostly because they can sell a lot of toys with this movie. I like this film but it's not something I would watch over and over. The story is a little weak and there are parts that are clearly put there to make the movie longer. This movie is like 2 hours long. Lightning McQueen is a great character and Mater is tolerable in this movie. The rest of the characters I couldn't care less about. The ride at Disney California Adventure is awesome by the way! This is a decent movie, BUT THEN THEY DECIDED TO MAKE AN AWFUL SEQUEL! Why John Lasseter, why? - MegaSoulhero
