Worst Disney Animated Movies

Here are the worst animated movies ever done by Disney.

The Top Ten

1 Planes

The people who made this movie needed to take a hint. First of all, Cars to this day is the worst Pixar Film and compared to the great movies before Cars it sucked. Cars with giant eyeballs just don't settled well with me. After that train wreck or should I say "car wreck" ha ha get it? Anyway Cars 2 came out which was even worst than the first. I mean really Pixar make a sequel to the Incredibles instead of Cars. You even made a game for Incredibles 2! After I thought it was all over this piece of trash came out. It's almost the exact same as Cars! It's just boring and stupid. It's even worse than Cars (as if that were even possible). I can't believe that the second one is in theaters! What's next? Boats? Trains? Trucks? Buses? I just hope they take a hint and end this terrible franchise at Planes 2.

Wait... how is Cars the worst Pixar movie when you stated after that Cars 2 was worse? - KennyRulz244444

Nope, nopedy nope.
Plane sucked, seriously. I brought my little sblings there and they didn't liked it. AND THEY LIKE EVERY MOVIE. Like seriously? It's the same plot as Cars, to win a race! The characters were flat and it wasn't funny in my opinion.

One more thing, why is Lion King here? And more importantly why is Plane behind Lion King? Reality check haters, Lion King is the top grossing Disney animated movie, and deserved it!

Planes is actually a really good movie. You guys are such haters, I would like to see you do better. Pixar did not fail, yes, it is similar to Cars but it's kind of supposed to be. A lot of kids like planes and flying so they wanted to make a movie based off of that. The songs are sweet, the plot is alright, I just don't see what the complaints are about. Sure, it's kind of like cars because it's an airplane who wants to win a race. You have to realize though, planes and cars are not the same thing and most of you judged this movie before you even went to see it.

The movie was just a sad cash grab trying to ride on Cars success. - theriskyfixins

2 Home on the Range

This should be #1! I mean why put great movies like The Little Mermaid over this crap? Most of these movies aren't even that bad most are great but not this! I mean The Little Mermaid has 14% but this only has 2%? This was worse than Tinker Bell, Frankenweenie, and Planes!

I've never watched this movie, but just by the cover I can tell I'm never watching it soon!

You know what the worst part of this film is? :
This doesn't even feel like a Disney film. With a forgettable story, stereotypical characters, and unfunny jokes, Home on the Range was, and forever will be the worst of the Disney Canon.

Roseanne was the best thing about this movie, and that's bad.

3 Frozen

It's not the worst film ever! But it's definitely not the best. In my opinion it's a good movie, but overrated. It's liked they made it without thinking. I didn't feel satisfied when I left the theater. Like how did Elsa get her power? Was she born with it? How did the parents know to come to the little troll rock thingies for help? They also needed to be a little bit more realistic. Anna and Elsa are almost strangers. They haven't talked in years, and barely see each other. Anna can't just act like they were best buddies over the years. And it seems they just added Olaf to get attention. Who doesn't want to see a cute funny little snowman? But the songs are good though.

I did pay attention and I didn't hear them say she was born with her powers at all. Also that map looks really unhelpful. - SammySpore

The logic of Disney fans:

Early 1940: Pinocchio sucks! Snow White was WAY better!
Late 1940: Fantasia sucks! Pinocchio was WAY better! (Meanwhile, Snow White is revered as a classic)
1941: Dumbo sucks! Fantasia was WAY better! (Meanwhile, Pinocchio is revered as a classic)
1942: Bambi sucks! Dumbo was WAY better! (Meanwhile, Fantasia is revered as a classic)
1950: Cinderella sucks! Bambi was WAY better! (Meanwhile, Dumbo is revered as a classic)
1951: Alice in Wonderland sucks! Cinderella was WAY better! (Meanwhile, Bambi is revered as a classic)
1953: Peter Pan sucks! Alice in Wonderland was WAY better! (Meanwhile, Cinderella is revered as a classic)
1959: Sleeping Beauty sucks! Peter Pan was WAY better! (Meanwhile, Alice in Wonderland as a classic)
1967: The Jungle Book sucks! Sleeping Beauty was WAY better! (Meanwhile, Peter Pan is revered as a classic)
1973: Robin Hood sucks! The Jungle Book was WAY better! (Meanwhile, Sleeping Beauty is revered ...more - phillysports

Why don't I like this movie. I guess it's how unoriginal it all is. Five minuets in and it obviously is a Disney impression on X-men. Come on Disney, you could have tried a little harder to stall. The songs are unoriginal and downright stupid. I like kids movie songs as long as they don't take themselves seriously, not this. The dialogue is filled with countless clichés. Now for the worst part, the characters. Olaf is an obviously a sid rip-off right down to the voice acting. Kristoff doesn't have a single line which isn't from another movie. Elsa (as mentioned before) is X-men. And admit it guys, her sister is a joke.

By the way, why would anyone say this is the first Disney princess movie where the prince doesn't save the princess? If we reduce our options to princess movies exclusively, we got Brave, Mulan, rapunzel, princess and the frog girl (yes, I know that's a bad movie), bella and ariel. The fans of this just like it because it's new. Also, the textures in this are ...more

I understand your point (and agree with most of it),but I wouldn't say there songs are unoriginal as they are original songs - Sambazing

This movie really suck. I hate the movie so much that I want to sue Disney for that.

4 Chicken Little

Chicken Little is, bar none, Disney's most pathetic movie ever made. And this was made by a film studio which gave us childhood classics like The Lion King, Tarzan, Beauty and the Beast and The Little Mermaid. And now they come out with this? What happened? Without diving into too much detail, here are some of the many reasons why I hate this movie so damn much.

1) The way the main character is treated. This film glorifies bullying, abuse and cruelty towards people and Disney passes it off as a "joke". That's not a joke, that's an insult. Just like this film. Bullying is not something that should praised. It should be condemned and made illegal in every country on the planet. He is treated like he's public enemy number one despite the fact that he has done nothing to harm anyone. Even by his own father. That guy is the worst parent of all time. As a parent, you're supposed to love your children unconditionally, no matter what dumb things they have done in the past. ...more

Seeing this and Home on the Range in theaters, I grew up liking both films (Granted, I was just 6 when I saw this in theaters). But after watching the movie just 4 years later, I started HATING this movie. Everything, from animation to the terrible attempts at humor, the list can go on. What made the film terrible, though, is the weak story that goes back and forth and the side stories make absolutely no sense at all. The start of the movie is basically a trouble making chicken trying to be a great baseball player. Then the plot switched to saving his town from an "alien invasion". I mean, this movie makes Nut Job look like Lion King or Toy Story, it's that bad.

I remember liking this movie when it came out, but I don't remember a thing about it. by the way, I think Black Cauldron should be on here, it was terrible. Also, why are the Lion King and Little Mermaid on this list, they're some of Disney's best works!

This movie is basically finding nemo but bad

5 Pocahontas II: Journey to a New World

Dumb, weird, and really? The dress!

The racism is too much to handle!

This movie makes me feel sad inside

This crap should be number 1 - mood333

6 Mars Needs Moms

Mars Needs Moms? Should change the name to Mars of Destruction. That's a better fit for a bad movie. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

This movie was so bad, the trailer didn't even make it look good

I never knew this was Disney, I always thought it was Dreamworks. - NicholasYellow

It only gets emotional near the end, but in the beginning, we already hate the kid for hurting his mother. - Daviddv0601

7 Cars 2

Let me tell you something. The first cars was good. This was crap. It's a running joke I have with my family. Whenever we watch a bad disney film, I say " at least it isn't cars 2," and we all know that I'm right.

How could you turn a great movie (Cars) and turn it into a piece of crap (Cars 2). The heartwarming scenes weren't good, Mater acted stupider most of the movie and most of the scenes in the movie were more embarrassing than funny. I just hope Cars 3 is gonna be better than this embarrassment. Cars was great. So how could Pixar make this?!?! Cars 2. Crap unlike Cars. Make Cars 3 good!

This movie would have actually been pretty good if it had followed the storyline of the first movie... - AnnaOfArendelle332

This movie feels like they just slapped the characters from the original movie that we all fell in love with into this movie. Doesn't tie in with the first well at all - Randomator

8 Tinker Bell

I honestly don't have anything against this film. It was cute and I found it rather entertaining. Now bring up the never ending sequels and I'll hit you in face. Don't base an entire franchise off a fairy that had like five seconds of screen time and did nothing but jingle in Peter Pan. And five movies, countless bed sheets, and little plushies filled with thousands of girls hopes and dreams of finding something that you couldn't even communicate verbally with later you've got yourself a franchise no one can stand. Let's just hope it ends with the Pirate Fairy that, may I add, had NO purpose! Let's just hope there's no more. Oh wait there is? Great... Just great.

Good Grief! NO MORE Tinker Bell films.

I find this movie stupid and overrated and the fact that Disney made like four more after it just makes me mad. And I'm really sad to see The Lion King here. And I'd like to point out that the sequel to Pocahontas isn't dumb the real Pocahontas actually married John Ralph.

The movie itself isn't bad. However, it doesn't change the fact that the sequels became way too much. Just STOP already! I don't mind if we have one more but can you please just end it already with Tink meeting Peter Pan already. - Daviddv0601

What's next? planes and super mario bros!?

10 The Wild

Man, this movie really sucks. Flat and dull characters, ridiculous imitation of Madagascar and The Lion King. The only reason this film not be in the top 10 of this list is that it is certainly the most forgettable movie of the history of Disney. I'm proof of that: I watched that in theater 10 years ago and I forgot all this film 3 hours after leaving the theater. Just remembered its existence now, when I saw this poster. - Palmeiras

This movie sucks! It's a ripoff of 3 movies: Madagascar, The Lion King, and Finding Nemo. It's terribly unfunny, mostly butt jokes and toilet humor. And the designs of the animals are disgusting! And there's so much product placement in this movie it's unbearable to watch. I'm glad this movie bombed and hardly and nowadays it's forgotten so we can let this animated atrocity burn to flames!

Very unoriginal. Should be in the top 10. I know Disney didn't actually make it; they merely distributed it. I just felt leaving this comment anyway.

I watched it and now just realized it was a Disney movie. No. It is basically Madagascar. The plot matches up! Take your time to look at it! Really, Disney? We trusted you until this movie

The Contenders

11 Atlantis: The Lost Empire

I actually like this movie

Don't like the plot

Who are all these characters? Why is it so boring? My second least favorite Disney film behind Chicken Little.

Never seen it.3.

12 The Lion King

WHY would anyone think this is a bad movie!?!

What lion king rocks! It was the highest grossing animated film and deserves it! The plot is amazing!

I would attach them together and create The Lion King centipede

One question - How is this on here? It's one of, if not THE greatest Disney movie of all time! - Daviddv0601

Oh Come On Disney's Best Non Pixar Animated Movie Since Wreck It Ralph, It Doesn't Belong On This List. - masoncarr2244

If you really want to see a bad movie bout animals, watch Chicken Little or Death Note

Its Sad To See Movies Like Cars And Monsters University, Movies With Good Morals To Kids Getting Bashed On, But Then Society Drama Gets Praised, Wow, Sad. - VideoGamefan5

This film only cared for the merchandise rather than the story or characters - boomman149

15 Cinderella

Come on people. Cinderella is a beautiful classic. How can Phineas and Ferb be lower than this?

Please stop putting great classics so high on the list

@Treacle it's not JUST because it's old that it's a classic, but also because it's GOOD! Once again, I have to ask, WHY do we need every GOOD Disney movie on lists like this? Oh, wait, that's right, we DON'T need any good movies on any worst movies list! People just put them there because they are IDIOTS! I said this in another reply (about The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh), but I've come up with a song about how different opinions ruin everything, and that's what it's called. Based on Adults Ruin Everything from The Fairly OddParents. - Disney1994

The reason for this movie to be on the list of because of Cinderella's butt-faced stepmother and stepsisters who treated her like @#$& on a daily basis!

There's romance near the end.
Romance sucks.

16 Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

It's old but not bad. Stop picking on real classics that are actually worth the Disney name, Fools!

Screw all of you this is a good movie

This is the first ever Disney movie that is ever existed. Why does this one was in this list?

Uh, why would the first Disney movie be a bad one? I love this classic work of art.

17 Frankenweenie

Frankenweenie is TERRIBLE. They're copying off of Frankenstein with a stupid animated dog movie. It's not even SAD! The characters are plain creepy. It was super boring, and who puts a BLACK AND WHITE MOVIE IN A THEATER? Worst idea ever, Disney could've done way better. Good thing they made Frozen after this.

Ahh! I'm a kid Disney! A kid! Have they forgotten who the primary audience is!? This is a story about a dog, who, wait a second, DIES, and he brings it back to life!? That is stupid, creepy, and downright just wrong! Does anyone stop to think that every time they see this thing they are looking at a stitched up corpse!? I always felt sick watching this movie, and I was so unlucky because my older brother loved the movie for some reason! So I had to see this movie so many times! They could have at least made the movie in color. I mean come on!

I want this film to be in color.

Please take this off the list. NOW. Frankenweenie doesn’t deserve this hate. And it isn’t a ripoff of Frankenstein! It’s a remake of the 1980 ( or 1990 ) movie, which was in live action. And with Tim Burton’s creepy-but-cool art style, it made the movie even better. I demand this movie to be off the list, or I will report the person who put it here over and over again until they leave this website. F O R E V E R. - IceFoxPlayz

18 Mulan II

Worst Disney sequel ever. I loved the original Mulan film, this film is just a disgrace to the name of Mulan!

Most of the Disney animated films are decent, despite not being comparable at all to the original. But this one... It's best just to pretend it doesn't exist. Like watching a SpongeBob episode: You know the original was good, but the cheap attempts to continue the franchise are pathetic.

Disney animated sequels are decent. Sorry. Forgot to proofread.

Looks terrible. Shang ruins everything.

This film is ok to me...

19 The Black Cauldron

Back when the Lion King came out it was over marketed and everyone started to hate it, but nowadays people look at it as a movie they couldn't imagine the Disney canon without. Frozen is going through the backlash phase right now, but it is a good movie and people will go back to liking it once it stops being over marketed. However something like the Black Cauldren was never good and will never get to that stage where it's a classic, instead it's one of the most forgettable movies ever made with no charm and annoying characters.

"The Black Cauldron" is not even a terrible movie. Sure it's a dark, violence, non-musical film that was forgotten, but I loved this movie. It's even way better than "Home on the Range" and "Chicken Little".

People pan it for its low box office total, but it really is a bad movie. - Evant

Never watched it, heard it sucks many times

20 Aladdin

HOW IS THIS ON HERE? IT IS ONE OF THE BEST Disney MOVIES. Relatable characters, a compelling and well-structured storyline, plenty of action, and comedy!

This movie was AWESOME!



21 Treasure Planet

WHY IS THIS HERE?! This is my favorite Disney movie EVER! It's got some mature themes. Jim's parent didn't die, as they always do in Disney films, but he left Jim and his mother. He just left. This was the last hand-drawn Disney movie, yet it's blend of animation and CGI is beautiful. As an animator myself and as one who loves to hate a movie, WHY IS THIS HERE?

This is not the last hand-drawn Disney movie. Brother Bear and Home on the Range were also hand-drawn. Then they returned to the genre with The Princess and the Frog in 2009. The most recent one is the 2011 Winnie the Pooh.


This is my favourite Disney Film ever, the plot and animation is amazing, it's certainly different from the normal Disney movies so everyone says it's bad from the others when it's not. There is nothing wrong with Treasure Planet.

You can't mix between sci-fi and pirates. Why are the characters using sails in space? Just silly

22 Brave

This movie had so much potential and it ended up being a mesh of cliches of other Disney movies. Merida seems really interesting and they used her for a very boring, uninspiring plot.

Everyone who hates on this movie honestly just doesn't understand. They're too blind to see its amazing potential.

What I love this movie so much this is the best movie ever why is this even on this list?!?

Woefully boring an too much reliance on slapstick humour. A bad movie on every front

23 The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh

You guys are just so offensive are you serious?

You mean the new Winnie the Pooh. - Evant

Whoever made this list is a joke!

I hate that bear so much. That is mental torture

What's REALLY torture is seeing every GOOD Disney movie ever made on this list! SERIOUSLY PEOPLE! STOP saying different opinions are a good thing! THEY AREN'T GOOD AT ALL! The best way to improve this list is to take every GOOD movie off of it, but we can't because of the fact that people just HAVE to hate EVERYTHING! And the worst part about that is, if everything has a reason to be hated, then how are we supposed to be able to tell when it's actually GOOD FOR REAL?! - Disney1994

I am a Disney hater and I am here to say that every movie is terrible, but This is the worst.

I didn't watch the movie, but from the poster, I can tell that Eric became trans. - mood333

Not true. This is about Ariel's daughter Melody. Eric isn't even ON the poster! - Disney1994

This movie is an exact copy of the original 1989 film.

If you actually knew the plot of the book there would never be a sequel.

27 The Aristocats

It is a bland and boring movie with terrible animation in my opinion

This is such a bad movie! the off key singer at the beginning with the a horrible storyline and a bad French accent it's so bad!

Would I watch the Aristocats sure! But I would have to buy two tickets, one for m and the one for the guy holding a gun up to my head! This film probably has shamed disney and anyone else in the making. The plot doesn't even make that much sense and to top this all off the off key singer with a french accent for 2 minutes. Also... NOBODY WANTS TO BE A CAT! Being a dog has ALWAYS been the dream! The songs were ver unentertaining and the dancing was abysmal. Also the song everyone wants to be a. Cat (which is a big lie) also had some stereotypes that were actually difficult to watch. Type #nobodywants2ba🐱

Cats are basically mini God clones in disguise. - SilverstreamSucks

Hey! Why is this on the list?!

Who would even think to make a sequel to a movie 62 YEARS AFTER the first one?

It was actually 64 years. And that doesn't prove that the movie is bad. - Disney1994

This movie is the only good sequel to the original movie.

34 Disney's Little Einsteins - Our Big Huge Adventure

Even as a straight to DVD film from Baby Einstein, this movie is NOT Disney! - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

35 Strange Magic

This film is from Touchstone and Lucasfilm; both are owned by Disney (Lucasfilm acquired by Disney in 2012), so it counts as a Disney film. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

I’d rather watch the Star Wars prequels than this.

Best disney movie ever. I didn't cry at all!

Its just random that's all...

41 Return to Never Land

It's my favourite Disney sequel! Captain Hook was more evil in this and Peter Pan even showed more development rather than being the brat he was in the first movie. Jane was also a rather interesting character, showing that it is never too early to grow up and you should still try to find your childhood. The only things I didn't like were the use of pop songs and replacing the crocodile with a giant octopus. I get it, back in the day, pirates were scared of the Kraken but in this case, it just didn't work with this movie. There's just something about the crocodile. The crocodile actually represented death and the clock ticking was the amount of time Hook had left to live. So in a way, the crocodile meant death and time. Hook is a grown up and he is a world where you never grow up. Because he's grown up, Neverland doesn't want him alive, so the crocodile is trying to kill him by devouring him, finally keeping the cycle where you never grow up. The octopus is just... there... to be the ...more - Daviddv0601

I didn't dislike this movie. Jane learns a good lesson. This movie wasn't bad, but it wasn't the best.

The first movie I've ever seen can't vote srry

42 Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue
43 The Jungle Book 2

There are so many terrible animated sequels out there by disney, but this just might be the worst. if you have ever seen it you would agree! I think it went straight to DVD/VHS

Actually this was sent to theaters first. The original plan was to make it straight to video, but they realized they could make more money if it had a theatrical run, just like Return to Never Land (the sequel to Peter Pan).

44 Beauty and the Beast: Belle's Magical World

A 70-80 minute marathon of belle and beast fighting

You just don't know when to stop losing your damn temper, don't ya, Beast?

The only reason Belle is in this movie is to stop the other characters from killing each other.

This was not needed

45 The Hunchback of Notre Dame II

No Frollo means no enjoyment

Should be higher up on here.

46 An Extremely Goofy Movie

Why is this on here?! This movie is great!
