Top 10 Worst Disney Animated Movies Not Made by Pixar

We talked about the best Disney movies, now let's talk about the worst ones. Remember, these are only animated Disney movies that are not Pixar. I'm also not including straight to dvd sequels.

The Top Ten

1 Home on the Range

Okay, rant time! I have always been a big fan of Disney, ever since I was a kid. But this, this was the biggest slap to the face they could have ever given us! This isn't a step down for Disney, it's a huge tumble down 50 flights of stairs! There is nothing good about this movie! It's about these cows who live on a farm called Patch of Heaven. The farm is going to be closed down if it can't be paid for. So the cows go after some ridiculously annoying and stupid bandit. They eventually capture him and get to keep the farm. This movie is insanely stupid! Imagine if this was the first movie you saw by Disney. It would make you not want to see their other works because you can't trust them after seeing how bad this one was! This movie is the Foodfight of Disney! Uncreative and an absolute disaster! I checked IMDb and 19 people were listed as writers of this movie! What the heck!? This was also the last hand drawn animated Disney film until Princess and the Frog and Winnie the Pooh. The ...more - MegaSoulhero

Honestly...i don't dislike this movie. I know it gets a lot of hate, and I am not saying it is GREAT really isn't that bad. Yeah it was kind of stupid but it was still better than Mars Needs Moms or The Wild. I don't really get the hate. If I saw this for cheap at a Walmart or something I would pick it up

Still better than The Lion King, though.

Ok people we need to save people every single copy of this dvd should be burned and never seen again just looking at the cover it looks rubbish unlike kung fu panda which you do not judge by the cover judge by the cover for home on the range

2 Chicken Little

Buck Cluck is such an idiot.

Hard to believe that Disney could make such a mean-spirited, annoying film! The townsfolk think Chicken Little is crazy for believing that the sky is falling. The only people who don't think he's crazy are his friends. Runt, Abby, and Fish. Well, it's a good thing that Chicken Little earned the respect of the townsfolk by winning a baseball game. But then later on he warns people about aliens and the sky and what not and everyone thinks he's crazy again. So that baseball scene was pointless. I hate every character in this movie. ESPECIALLY CHICKEN LITTLE'S AWFUL FATHER! Buck Cluck is, without a doubt, the worst Disney character of all time! He is such a terrible father! He isn't supportive of his son and he distances himself away from him. The jokes in this film aren't funny and the pop culture references are very forced! This movie isn't as bad as Cars 2, but I can see why people consider this to be one of the worst! - MegaSoulhero

The father Buck Cluck deserves to be made into KFC food and chicken little can live with a very nice farmer - Ihateschool

This movie terrified and saddened me as a child. I remember being so perplexed as to ts popularity. - keycha1n

3 The Wild

Someone said "Hey! You know that popular Dreamworks movie called Madagascar? How about we make our own version of it? " And so they did! This film is a total rip-off of Madagascar! It stars CGI animals who live in a zoo in New York and they eventually escape the zoo and there's a lion and a giraffe. IT'S MADAGASCAR! I can't believe Disney would stoop so low as to steal an idea from another movie! I will admit, this movie has better animation than Madagascar, but the comedy is worse. It just comes out of nowhere! At least it had some funny moments, unlike Cars 2! However, this movie tries way too hard to be a serious movie while also being a comedy. That sometimes doesn't work! If you want a good movie about animals from a zoo, Madagascar would be the better choice. - MegaSoulhero

This Film Is A CRAPPY ROTTEN BURNT EGG! - VideoGamefan5

4 Frozen

Frozen is garbage - sonictiger

Awful Overrated Trash

This is absolute garbage

5 Mars Needs Moms

Just from the title, I knew this movie was going to suck! Which is such a shame considering this is the same company that made Polar Express and Beowulf. I personally don't like Polar Express but I understand that a lot of people do. Mars Needs Moms stars a kid named Milo who has an argument with his mom and then she gets abducted by aliens on Mars so they could create an army. What!? By the way, ImageMovers is really good with making animated characters look like real human beings. Except in this case. Each character is absolutely hard to look at! This movie is still more original than Cars 2, but this movie was still a dumb idea! - MegaSoulhero

I hated this movie. I personally think it's so much worse then home on the range. The whole story was rubbish and stupid. Hated this movie - Froglamb

6 The Aristocats

I love this movie. Don't know why it's on the list. There was nothing wrong with this film. - Froglamb

The only theatrically released disney movie I have not seen all the way through due to lack of interest

It's a really boring, badly animated and pointless movie in my opinion

The only good thing that came out of this movie was that it was the inspiration for The Cure's "The Lovecats" - KingFab

7 Dinosaur

Why is this on this list? It is such a good movie in my opinion. - DinoLover4242

This was the first non Pixar CGI Disney film. This movie looked like it would've been good because of how amazing the environment looked and how detailed the dinosaurs were but I was bored to death by this movie. I just don't find this to be an interesting movie. The characters are forgettable, the story has been done multiple times, I just couldn't get myself to like this movie, even as a kid. I also think it would've been better if the dinosaurs didn't talk. That just kind of ruins it for me. Still better than Walking With Dinosaurs, though. - MegaSoulhero

8 The Little Mermaid II: Return to the Sea

Ugh this movie. It was like 'hey, let's take the little mermaid's plot, but reverse it'. That is really all it is.

9 Alice in Wonderland
10 The Hunchback of Notre Dame II

I may be one of the few to say this, but I actually really liked this movie. It may be considered a guilty pleasure, but I actually enjoyed it.

Frollo goes from kind to a nasty jerk - Ihateschool

The Contenders

11 The Black Cauldron

A lot of people have mixed feelings about this movie. I decided to give a watch and yeah, I can see why there are people who hate it. The story isn't very interesting, the characters aren't very memorable, and the animation isn't really up to Disney's standards. I will admit, the Horned King was pretty scary, but Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty was more scary so... As for Gurgi, he was basically the Jar Jar Binks of this movie! So annoying! This movie is also pretty dark, even more than Hunchback. This film almost got a PG-13 rating so they had to tone down the violence. I know there are people who like this film but I would give it a skip. - MegaSoulhero

12 The Lion King 1 1/2

Why is this on the list? It doesn't look bad to me. - DinoLover4242

13 Beauty and the Beast: Belle's Magical World
14 Atlantis: Milo's Return
15 Mulan II
16 Planes

Just to be clear! This is not a Pixar movie. It was made by DisneyToon Studios. Just because it takes place in the same universe as Cars, that doesn't mean it's Pixar. Why would anyone even think that a spinoff of Cars would be a good idea? Cars was okay, Cars 2 sucked, and Planes is, well, slightly better than Cars 2, but still pretty bad! I mean, a plane that's afraid of height? Not only that but the movie is incredibly cliché! We have the guy that no one believes will win the race but eventually rises to the top later on. The bad guy tries to stop Dusty from winning but it backfires. By the way, Ripslinger is voiced by Roger Craig Smith aka Sonic the Hedgehog. So I find it ironic that Ripslinger didn't win the race at the end. I also find the side characters to be very annoying. I guess there's nothing really bad in this film for children but I didn't think this movie was necessary. I would rather watch Cars 2 than this any day! - MegaSoulhero

17 Bambi II

Bambi 2 was actually surprisingly really really good. I was very shocked when I first saw it was good. Did the people who voted for it actually watch it?

18 Lady and the Tramp II: Scamp's Adventure
19 Pocahontas II: Journey to a New World
20 Hercules

Surprisingly, I watched this movie twice. I thought that by watching it a second time I would like it a little more but nothing changed. It was still bad. Hercules gets sent to Earth to be protected from a villain who wants to kill him. He gets taken care of by a normal couple until he finds out who he really is. He also happens to be incredibly strong and gets a love interest... Yep! This is definitely Superman! Also, I don't understand why there is gospel music in a Hercules. The songs in this movie aren't very good. With the exception of Go the Distance which I'll admit is the best Disney song ever! The jokes in Hercules aren't very funny and the movie is painfully inaccurate. I like Hades, though. He's cool. But this movie isn't very good. - MegaSoulhero

The inaccuracy in this movie, both Mythological and historical, baffles me... - RoleplayerR


21 The Fox and the Hound 2
22 Lilo & Stitch 2: Stitch Has a Glitch

Those creators are the fault for making Lilo fail to understand Stitch having a glitch.

23 101 Dalmatians II: Patch's London Adventure
24 Kronk's New Groove

Making Kronk the main protagonist is a big mistake. - DinoLover4242

25 Jake and the Neverland Pirates: Battle for the Book

I like this movie- Jake is so dweamy - zimrose03

26 Fantasia


27 Mickey Mouse Clubhouse: Road Rally
28 Pocahontas

What a disappointing and very boring movie! In 1994, they came out with one of the best Disney movies ever. The Lion King. Then the year after that, they gave us this. Pocahontas was a huge step down for Disney. Not only is it boring, it's historically inaccurate. Also, the characters aren't interesting. This movie is kind of about nature and yet the animals don't talk. The worst part in this entire movie is when she first meets John Smith and she hears the wind talking to her then she suddenly learns English. That made me so angry! She learned English from the wind! The Wind! THE WIND! That has got to be the laziest screenwriting I have ever seen from Disney! The only good thing about this movie is the soundtrack. Colors of the Wind is amazing and the orchestration is well done, but the rest of this movie isn't very interesting. - MegaSoulhero

Did you know that the standards of Disney is to encourage children to live not in the real world, Also the standard of her own story is not good for Disney to make it since it will make the story so dark and not meet the standard for her being a princess. Disney also wants it to be kid-friendly so that. - kontrahinsunu

Y, know why it is inaccurate, huh? The true story caused her to get rape, dying in pure torture and pain, being dragged off by Rolfe and John Smith dying. What is better, that or the one Disney made? - kontrahinsunu

29 The Lion King II: Simba's Pride

Now could you put this onto here?! It was such an amazing movie compared to most other non-Pixar Disney sequels! - DinoLover4242

30 The Lion King

I'm not stupid for thinking that this film is the worst. The Lion King's defenders are more stupid than people who hate it. Get over it.

Why is this even on here? - DatBoiSquirtle

Heck, any film is BETTER than the stupid Lion King. It is way overhyped and deserves to be destroyed!

Whoever put this here and whoever hates it “shut up” come on it’s a great movie and if you hate you only hate it because people like it

38 Atlantis: The Lost Empire
