Top 10 Worst Direct-to-Video Disney SequelsMegaSoulhero This is a list of the worst direct-to-video Disney sequels. Some sequels got theatrical releases but the ones on this list didn't. Also, midquels can be included in this list.
The Top Ten
The Hunchback of Notre Dame is one of my favorite Disney movies. I was thinking to myself, how bad could the sequel be? But then I watched MrEnter's review and, yeah, this movie sucks. I sat down and watched it myself recently and I definitely agree with everything MrEnter said. In the first movie, Quasimodo said his life would be complete if he was able to go out and enjoy life outside of the bell tower. In this movie, he sings about wanting a girlfriend. That makes two of us. He eventually gets a girlfriend named Madeline who is actually kind of hot. Unfortunately, she works for the villain in the movie. That kind of reminds me of Hercules. Also, the love interest being a traitor has been done many times! Of course since this movie had a small budget, the animation looks terrible! If you absolutely loved the first Hunchback movie, then I don't recommend this one. - MegaSoulhero
This is my most hated Disney sequel of all time. I loved The Hunchback of Notre Dame and it's one of the best and darkest movies Disney has ever made. The sequel is just painful to watch. The plot is stupid and nonsensical, the villain is lame and boring, every character is shallow, the songs are horrible and the animation is ugly. At least Mulan 2 had some nice animation and colors and I liked the romance between the three princesses and Mulan's friends. But this one has nothing good. It's ugly, brainless and I hate Phoebus' and Esmeralda's son. This abomination has no redeemable qualities and should burn like Frollo wanted Esmeralda to burn in the first movie.
This movie has horrible animation, a horrible story, all of the characters are incompetent, the villain is a joke, and it's just an all around awful film. - Elric-san
I eventually got around to watching this thinking surely it couldn't be THAT bad, after all I quite like some of Disney's other straight to dvd movies like Lion King 2 and Bambi 2. I thought this movie's terrible reputation must just be because people's expectations were too high and it would turn out to be a decent guilty pleasure type movie...how wrong I was. It really is THAT bad, it feels like fourth rate fan fiction. I hope you really loved the gargoyles in the first movie because in movie 2 that's basically the whole movie, only 10x more annoying. The new child character 'Zephyr' is literally the most annoying thing on earth and it has this stupid cliché uninspired sub plot about a gem bell heist that nobody cares about. As for the villain, he's not even really a villain just a totally unthreatening common thief whose most villainous traits are being vain and secretly being fat and bald. The only bright spot in this movie is that by some miracle they managed to get all the ...moreV 8 Comments
UGH! This movie makes me angry! I wanted to punch every character in the face after watching this movie! They turned all the characters we loved from the first movie into terrible characters that we want to hate! Basically, Mulan and Shang take three princesses to an arranged marriage otherwise the Mongols will destroy China. Unfortunately, the princesses fall in love with Yao, Ling, and Po. Meanwhile, Mushu (voiced by a white guy) finds out that if Mulan and Shang marry each other, he will lose his job as royal guardian. So he tries to break them up. What a selfish jerk! By the way, you know that arranged marriage I was talking about with the three princesses? THAT NEVER HAPPENED! They basically doomed China! This is one of the worst movies I have ever seen! The animation is terrible, the songs are terrible, and they totally forgot what made the first movie so great! THIS MOVIE IS TERRIBLE! - MegaSoulhero
While I didn't think of any of the sequels were great, this is the only one I truly hated. It takes all of the enjoyable characters from the first movie and makes them unbearable, somewhat like SpongeBob has done, only not quite as bad. I just personally like to pretend this sequel doesn't even exist.
It's not the best Disney sequel but surely as hell does not deserve first place on this list.
I'm not saying I hate this sequel but it was just the worse cause when shang dies... disney how can you even make the prince die?V 10 Comments
There is nothing magical about this! There's not much to say about this movie since it doesn't really have a plot. It's broken into different segments. And they are all terrible! Also, the animation is atrocious! I understand they didn't have a large budget but this was very hard to watch. Remember that one scene where Belle had derpy eyes? I kept seeing that in my nightmares. I love the original Beauty and the Beast movie and this one almost ruined it for me! - MegaSoulhero
There are so many animation errors in this "Film." This is Disney we're talking about, right?
Why is this a thing
How to summarize this movie:
"I WILL NEVER APOLOGIZE"
Now, I've stated before that The Little Mermaid is overrated. Good but overrated. Out of curiosity, I watched the sequel and it sucked! So after Ariel and Eric got married, they gave birth to Melody (voiced by Tara Strong). This sequel kind of has a similarity to the first one since Melody wants to go in the ocean but her mother forbids her. Apparently, Ursula has a sister named Morgana who wants to avenge the death of her sister. Ariel is so scared of her that she has a wall be built between the ocean and the sea so Melody can't escape. Ariel is such a hypocrite! Not only that, the script is lazy! For example, Morgana has the EXACT same personality as her sister, Ursula. Right down to the voice. If you have to practically recreate the same villain then that is pretty lazy! - MegaSoulhero
Aside from the actual story (and by extension, the script), this actually wasn't that bad. I mean the animation, music, and score were all pretty good, plus most of the voice cast from the original movie returned. Wait, even if the plot was a rehash of The Little Mermaid, it's still a better story than many of these Disney Sequels.
This film had pretty much the same premise of the first except in reverse. Ariel wanted to become human, and Melody wanted to become mermaid. - Mcgillacuddy
SO glad this is unpopular. It stinks. I got blocked off the Disney wiki for sharing this fact.V 5 Comments
This is the worst Disney direct-to-video film I have ever watched in my whole entire life! Look, the animation was great, some of the songs were mediocre, but everything else was bad. The directors and the writers didn't put a lot of action in it. They put a lot of rush into it. Scamp is annoying! Tramp turned from a fun-loving adult to a cold, stern, serious parent. Lady barely got any screen time at all. Buster was a poor villain. Him being angry and hating Tramp for falling in love with Lady has got to be one of the most stupidest reasons I have ever heard in my whole entire life! Look, don't get me wrong, I know that people can sometimes get jealous, but this... This is so unacceptable! Angel is probably the only character I can root for. Scamp is nothing but a spoiled brat who only cares about himself and his own needs. He doesn't care about his friends nor his family, and he has no regard for anyone else but himself. Scamp is so annoying and very unlikable people! I used to ...more
Lady and the Tramp was one of those good Disney movies that definitely did NOT need a sequel. But they gave it one anyway! This sequel is very forgettable. It doesn't focus so much on the Lady and the Tramp, but more on their son, Scamp, who I absolutely hate! Why even put Lady and the Tramp in the title? Scamp is such a selfish, backstabbing son! Also, his parents forgive him WAY too quickly despite betraying them! He's basically the Ariel of this movie! This movie probably would've been ok if it was about his sisters. Scamp is absolutely unlikeable! Scamp isn't the only problem with the film. I also find it to be very predictable and mediocre. It also seems too very similar to the first movie. - MegaSoulhero
Why does Disney even make these? We don't want specific movies to have a sequel. This is one of them. Who cares about their puppy's adventure? They just focus on Scamp (I think somebody high named this puppy). This puppy is backstabbing. Why does this puppy even exist?
Boring sequel to classic movie. It's called scamps adventure, does he clime Mount Everest, visit Asia, battle the Russian empire? No! He stays in his home town and makes out with a junkyard dog. No point in calling that an adventure /:(. I mean it's a Disney sequel, it's meant to suck. The lion king 2 would have to been the only Disney sequel I really liked. Because the rest all take away a lot from their predecessor.V 4 Comments
If dreams did come true, then this sequel wouldn't exist! This movie tells three different stories and each of them are done very poorly. This movie is put together from a cancelled T.V. show. Each story involves Cinderella planning an event. Also, Lady Tremaine and the two stepsisters are in this movie. However, they only appear at the end. Just like most of direct-to-video Disney sequels, this had a very small budget which is shown based on the low quality animation as well as the voice acting. A lot of people consider this to be one of the worst Disney sequels and I can definitely see why. - MegaSoulhero
Even though it's by far the worst of the three Cinderella movies, it's certainly a step up from Beauty and the Beast: Belle's Magical World because at least the animation is semi-decent here and actually has a framing device to tie all the segments together, unlike that Beauty and The Beast anthology "sequel."
They were honestly better off scrapping the second segment all-together, as it was easily the most worthless of the three. However, if they combined the first and third segments into a single story (with more presence from Lady Tremaine), then it would've been a better Disney Sequel.

Journey to a new world? What is this? Aladdin? I have mentioned before that I don't like Pocahontas. It was boring and didn't try to be historically accurate. However, in this sequel, they had her get together with John Rolfe (voiced by Billy Zane). Pocahontas and the other Native Americans get word that John Smith died (not actually dead obviously). How did they even find out about his death? Also, John Smith isn't voiced by Mel Gibson this time. He's voiced by Mel's younger brother, Donal Gibson. Radcliffe is in this movie and what is up with his mouth? The songs are terrible, the dialogue is awful, and this sequel is a disgrace! - MegaSoulhero
This was worse than Mulan 2 for me. I am just going to pretend that I didn't watch this movie. It completely ruined the first movie! - ToukaKirishima
I did not like this movie at all
Whats the point of watching the first one... I mean what happend to john smithV 2 Comments
A Beauty and the Beast Christmas movie!? That sounds like it will be good! I was definitely wrong about that! In this movie, Belle wants to celebrate Christmas in the Beast's castle. However, Beast hates Christmas because it's the day that he was cursed. There is also an organ named Forte who is voiced by Tim Curry. Still better than his role in Rocky Horror Picture Show. He's the villain in this movie and he actually enjoys being an organ because it makes him immortal. So he tries to keep the Beast isolated from Belle so they can't fall in love. For some reason in this movie, Belle is the one who wants to connect with Beast whereas in the original, Beast wanted to connect with Belle in order to break the curse. Belle has no reason to want to get together with Beast. This movie has a lot of plot holes. I absolutely hated the Beast in this movie! This movie didn't necessarily ruin the original for me but it was still pretty bad! - MegaSoulhero
I seen this lovely Christmas movie dozens of times and never get tired of watching it beauty and the beast the enchanted Christmas is a great Disney direct to video midquel it is so cool it is the best this is the second one of it I used to rent that at Hollywood video and at block buster video in tampa florida and I used to watch this at my grandparents house way back in 2001
They need to stop remaking the beauty and the beast
Good and happy for this
The only good thing about this movie is Dixie, who is ironically more popular than any of the characters from the original movie.
The first movie was great - steelers1979
I saw this once and I hated it. I wondered what Todd's life with Vixey would be like, and if Todd and Copper ever reconciled after the events of the movie. It lacks the charm of the original.
Ugh it's boring and Reba macentire sings bad - 1507563V 1 Comment
I have mixed feelings about this. It's supposed to be the story of how Timon and Pumbaa met before Simba. Sure, interesting, but it also justifies most of the events of the original movie as being results of Pumbaa's farts. It was funny at first, but since that was the only joke they used in the entire movie, it didn't feel as funny.
I loved this film. And for those who hate timon and pumbaa: let's not forget that without them simba would be dead hundreds of time over in my opinion! They RAISED him, they're the REASON the climax even happened in my opinion! - HeavyDonkeyKong
I don't know this is probably the best out of these all
You see, this is a Disney sequel they actually put WORK into...V 8 Comments
This sucks on many levels, especially Bunga and the new hyena trio.
The Lion Guard is awesome and I'm in sixth grade.
It's fine - PeeledBanana
This is ok but Bunga looks like a backup character and is not good qualitey
and Simba is all I'm awesome but the Heynas are just stupid Lion king 1 was better they were scary and could actaully fight these heynas have 2 dumb ones and a actaul smart one
By far the worst Disney sequel.
This movie was actually pretty good
This is actually good
While the original movie had a very original story, this one had no originality at all. This movie has a very weak story and almost no structure. All of the jokes have been stolen from the original and making Yzma a furry was really weird in a bad way. The characters have been totally bulldozed to give room for the boring replacements that are the Birdwell person and Papi. Overall this movie sucks.
Got robbed from a position in the Top 10.
Come on, it's not that bad. - Croy987
I loved the Emperors New Groove, and I thought it didn’t need a sequel. But back in the age of horrible direct-to-video Disney sequels (1998-2006), they decided to make a completely lackluster and lazy sequel to the Emperors New Groove. I liked Kronk in the original, but I didn’t think he had enough character to have a movie completely focus on him. All in all, just don’t watch this, or any Disney sequel for that matter.
This should be in the Top 10 quite honestly - SBells27
I did not know Atlantis had a sequel honestly for a film some people didn't like that much. - htoutlaws2012
Yeah this movie sucked. Nowhere as good as the first. - Mcgillacuddy
This had a sequel?! have to watch it to know why its on the list
This sequel came out 64 years after the original. That's a huge gap. All the voice actors had to be replaced. Bambi is voiced by Alexander Gould who played Nemo in Finding Nemo. I should also point out that this takes place in the middle of the original film. So it's a midquel. A lot of people consider this to be one of the better Disney sequels. I don't. This is probably because I wasn't a fan of the first one. I'm not saying it was bad, just not that good. Especially the part where it goes from Bambi's mother's death to happy singing birds. This sequel isn't any better. In fact, it's worse. I don't see myself ever watching this again. - MegaSoulhero
Eh its okay in my opinion! - HeavyDonkeyKong
This Sequel Is Ok in my opinion but I totally see why you think it should be here it has a huge gap - VideoGamefan5
I used to be obsessed with this sequel when I was younger. This film and the original Aladdin are pretty much the only Disney films I still like to watch occasionally. - IronSabbathPriest
While the animation is cheap, the script is weak and the story makes me want to slit my throat, the villain song, "You're Only Second Rate" will always be the only good thing from this movie. - Daviddv0601
I like it it is good
Why Disney make this movie? And why Jaffar is still alive and return after Aladdin became a hero in Agrabah? What is this, Prince of Persia 2 : The Shadow And The Flame, made one year before this?V 1 Comment
Didn't this come out in theatres?
I like it - PeeledBanana
It was released directly to video in the U.S.
This was not the best it was kind of boring
Worse than the original
Actually, I kind of liked this movie.
This was OK.
Am I the only one who liked this movie? - ClimaxDomeV 3 Comments
In my opinion one of the better sequels plus the episodes here were the only good ones to me and disney had they're own ideas
I couldn't stand to watch this movie. I don't know why, exactly.
This ruined the first Cinderella because the prince never remembers dancing with Cinderella and the fairy godmother never changes it back it basically changed the whole story
The only Direct-to-Video Disney Sequel to have a higher score on Rotten Tomatoes than the original. While it's still mediocre as a movie, this definitely says something about the original Brother Bear.
One of two direct-to-video Disney sequels that are worthy of being part of the Disney Animated Canon, the other being The Lion King 2: Simba's Pride.
The first one, I give it 8/10
But for its sequel 1/10
This isn't a sequal but I don't like it
I liked this, the one with ariel's kid was horrible though
I've never heard of this - LOTP
Wait. This exists? - SPM1_TopTenz
Even though this is one of the better Disney sequels (come on, people! Thick-thighed, bare-furred animals?! Ooh-la-la! ), I seriously expected this movie's title to be "A Goofy Movie 2".
This bored the heck out of me as a kid, mostly jasmine's story.
This is actually good. So the movie is about patch thinking he is one out of 101. The family is moving to the country. they accidentally leave patch at the old apartment. He goes to meet his hero. I forgot his name lol. Meanwhile cruelly is out of prison and sees spots and asks Lars to paint spots,she sees patch with his idol and patch has his tag on. She goes to the farm and kidnaps the pups with Horace and jasper. Patch and his idol save the pups. Great sequel 10/10 I think the best one so far I recommend watching it - 1507563
The puppy napping thing got old after the sequel of the live-action remake. Thunderbolt sucks and his stupid villain sidekick sucks. the art guy was Bland. I mean Thunderbolts sidekick hates the fact he's a sidekick. so he wants to get rid of Thunderbolt that was the dumbest subplot ever. nothing about this movie was redeemable. if you want to watch a hundred and one Dalmatians movie watch the original not this garbage sequel heck the T.V. show was better and I didn't even like that
My favorite movie when I was 5, never seen it since - LOTP
Shouldn't be here. This movie was great.
The 2nd one was bad enough. We didn’t need a 3rd one.
