Top Ten Reasons Why Studio Ghibli Films Are Better Than Disney Films
The Top Ten
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
Yes, this is true. Disney relies on nothing but Reputation and profit, they have no need to make anything good.
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
There's a bad guy
The bad guy almost defeats the good guy until friendship and teamwork save the day
Happily Ever After
They have badass female characters who aren't good fighters, aren't sexy, aren't necessarily tough - but are still the heroes. I love that they never sexualise badass female characters. - bangbangbangchan
More better than other animation studios as more respectable for female characters
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.
Cinderella wasn't helpless. She put up with years of abuse & stayed kind. No offense to Studio Ghibli. - RoseWeasley
YES. The protagonists are mainly girls about the age of eight to twelve. It has given me courage and pride as a girl. - Silverfroststorm
Yes, officially true
Yes. Clearly responsible that people are interested more than Disney nowadays, plus they are fond of the movies like Spirited Away and Princess Mononoke.
Agreed. Especially since The Lion King is nothing but stupid, false animal stereotypes.
True. In Disney films, we can basically guess what happens by half way through the movie leaving not a lot of suprising elements that makes us enjoy movies. Plus, lots of stereotypes.
First of let me say that studio Ghibli is far superior compared to Disney, but Howl's moving castle is based of a book. BUT: It is an amazing story and studio Ghibli changed a lot of things to fit it's own magic.
Yes. Even though it is my favourite animation studio of all time and it’s better than Disney’s (and a lot better than Frozen! )
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! All of Disney's movies are fairytales!
Amazing music for the movies and it’s emotional and beautiful soundtracks!
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
They say the more evil villains are in movies the more amazing the story is
Yeah! Disney just puts a trail of sparkles behind things that are magical. That's it. - Silverfroststorm
Just observed the way how ponyo's sisters turn into fish. - SamuiNeko
Yes! Totally agree. Especially in Tales From Earthsea, magic isn’t glowing hair or ice coming magically from your hands, it’s something different. It’s socerers and sorceresses (? ) that have invisible magic (you can’t see it happening like Elsa or rapunzel.). This makes it so much more real than Disney, and it appeals more to teens than small children. Even how they do show magic in studio ghibli films like spirited away and Tales From Earthsea is beautiful in itself.
CGI's not much to look at.
What's wrong with CGI?
Disney has Pixar.
Examples: All Pixar films, Dinosaur, Chicken Little, Meet the Robinsons, Bolt, Tangled, Wreck-It Ralph 1 and 2, Frozen 1 and 2, Big Hero 6, Zootopia, Moana, etc.
The plots are not cheesy or "trying to be edgy" - instead they are usually rooted deep in a traditional myth with a darker background, which I find fascinating. - bangbangbangchan
Disney makes dark films like Hunchback of Notre Dame and The Black Caldron.
This is the key why I love his films.
Great movies with colourful art form and more colourful plot than Disney’s
