Top Ten Reasons Why Studio Ghibli Films Are Better Than Disney Films


The Top Ten

1 Studio Ghibli Films Have Deeper Morals

Spirited Away and Princess Mononoke are both better than every Disney film.

Sorry but The Lion King, Toy Story, and more are superior to those films - PeeledBanana

You do realize Spirited Away and Princess Mononoke aren't the only Studio Ghibli films, don't you?

Do Disney movies even have morals?

Very true, Disney has the same plot in almost every story.

Something bad happens in the main characters childhood

2 Respect for Women

Cinderella is helpless without her helper mice, a fairy godmother, and a charming prince. Princess Mononoke can snipe a demonic giant boar with her bow. No contest.

YES. The protagonists are mainly girls about the age of eight to twelve. It has given me courage and pride as a girl. - Silverfroststorm

3 It Doesn't Cliche As Much As Disney Films

Agreed. Especially since The Lion King is nothing but stupid, false animal stereotypes.

4 Better Animation
5 Originality

It's stories are so much better than Disney's. Even the princess stories (like Princess Mononoke and The Tale of Princess Kaguya) aren't as cheesy and predictable! - Silverfroststorm

I agree with you.

6 Better Music

I think Princess Mononoke's soundtrack is amazing. I love many soundtracks of Disney films as well though.

All of Studio Ghiblis music is emotional and beautiful, but I especially love the ones from Spirited Away and Kikis Delivery Service. Very beautiful and powerful music. - Silverfroststorm

7 Better Plots
8 Unique Characters
9 Cooler Art Style
10 No Sequels

The problem with disney is when something becomes popular they milk it to death, hence all the sequels that we don't need and didn't want. Now we are getting Wreck It Ralph 2 and Frozen 2 which are best left as they are.

Sometimes it's best for you to just wonder about things, like in the Tale of Princess Kaguya it left me staying up till 1am just thinking about what happened after. - Silverfroststorm

Lol- Beauty and the Beast Belle's magical world so bad it is so bad.

Belle's Magical World is one of the worst animated films of all time. - PeeledBanana

No Pixar's not easily at all much interesting to look at anyway.

Pixar's not even easily classical enough at all anyway, is it?
