Top 10 Best Theatrical Disney Animated Movies


The Top Ten

1 The Lion King

This movie is amazing this was my very first disney movie I saw in theatres not a hater
I am a disney lover

Will you shut up Lion king hater?!

It doesn't deserve to be beloved, praised or treated better than other films. It is one of the worst, not the best.

Not gonna leave until The Lion King as a whole is destroyed.

It will never happen. Just accept that you're not gonna twist people's minds and destroy a beloved film. It's fine if you don't like it but that doesn't give you any right to bash it 24/7. - PeeledBanana

Definitely the best! This is my all time favorite. Chernabog is a perfect villain. It’s a humongous masterpiece. This should be number 1. - asantalo

This movie is flawless! An absolute work of art! - MegaSoulhero

Sorry, TLK, but this is Disney's true masterpiece along with the other 2 movies that came before Fantasia.

Fantasia is a fantastic beautifully animated masterpiece but I still think The Lion King is the best so I put it at #1. - PeeledBanana
