Top 10 Worst Disney Animated Sequels

MegaSoulhero
Disney has had a bad reputation with sequels. So let's talk about the worst Disney animated sequels!

The Top Ten

1 The Hunchback of Notre Dame II

Okay, I loved the first movie, but Hunchback of Notre Dame II should NOT have existed. Why? Because, it pretty much ruined everything about the original movie. Why did the creators have to go and mess-up such a beloved classic?! In this movie, Quasimodo gets a girlfriend, named Madellaine. Unfortunately, we find out that she works for the villain! That part kind of reminds me of another Disney film. Speaking of villain, the villain is not very interesting at all in this movie. All he wants to do is steal a bell, he is definitely NOT a great replacement for Judge Claude Frollo (the main villain of the first movie) I know a lot of young viewers were probably disappointed that Quasimodo did not win over Esmeralda's affections in the first movie. In this "crap of a sequel", Esmeralda is with Phoebus, both of them have a son, however, he does not add much to this film. To top it all off, the animation is garbage, the characters are very boring (plus, dull), and there is NO plot - Stazemar000

Hunchback of Notre Dame 2! A sequel that should have never happened! Why did Disney have to go and ruin such an awesome classic? In this movie, Quasimodo gets a girlfriend. But unfortunately, his girlfriend works for the villain! Kind of reminds me of another terrible Disney film! Also, the villain in this film is very uninteresting! All he wants to do is steal a bell! He is definitely not a good replacement for Frollo! Also, Esmeralda and Phoebus have a son now and he doesn't really add much to the film! And of course because of this movie's low budget, the animation is awful! I love Hunchback of Notre Dame but the sequel is terrible! - MegaSoulhero

I know that a lot of little kids probably felt really sad that Quasimodo didn't win over Esmeralda in the original. But that's not an excuse to ruin one of the most adult-like, realistic conclusions to any Disney movie ever! This is a side note, but it's kind of hard not to notice the animation differences between the two movies. The original is a gothic animated spectacle. The sequel looks like it belongs on a crappy Saturday morning cartoon. - phillysports

WHAT A HORRIBLE MOVIE! - PeeledBanana

2 Mulan II

This is one of the worst movies I've ever seen! No exaggeration! This movie is absolutely terrible! Mulan was such a great movie! So it really bothers me that the sequel is this bad! Every character in this movie is unlikeable! Especially Mushu! He loses his job as royal guardian because Mulan and Shang get engaged! So in order to keep his job, he tries to break them up! And to think I hated Ariel for being selfish! Also, Mulan is completely out of character in this movie! There are three princesses who are forced to get married but they fall in love with Yao, Ling, and Chien-Po! And Mulan is happy about this even though if the princesses don't go through with the arranged marriaged, China is doomed! Mulan did not care about love in the first movie! She cared mostly about family and honor! The arranged marriage never happened so we can all assume that China got destroyed! I hate this movie so much! There isn't a single redeeming thing about it! It is awful! It is terrible! I've only ...more - MegaSoulhero

Mulan was an overall great movie that showed people, especially young girls, to follow their ambitions and to not care about the negative things and stereotypes people say about you. This...this is garbage. Ya done messed up, Disney. Ya done messed up. - phillysports

Mulan 2 was an amazing movie, with tons of catchy songs, likeable characters and a very entertaining plot, the comedy in the movie can not be beat - Rucas

Mulan II... A sequel that sucks a$$. Mulan cares about love in this movie, but in the first one, she cared about family and honor. What I didn't really like about this movie was when Mushu tried to break-up Mulan and Shang, pretty selfish.

Basically, the creators made Mushu a jerk in this damn sequel. Disney really needs to get their crap together - Stazemar000

3 Cars 2

I find it VERY hard to believe that people actually like this movie! Why would ANYONE think it's a good idea to make Mater the main character? Sure he was kind of funny in the first movie, but no one wanted him to get his own movie! Mater is the Jar Jar Binks of this movie and John Lasseter is the George Lucas of Pixar! This seems more like fan fiction than a movie! A movie about cars who are spies? Seriously? I can't believe one of the best animation studios made something so unwatchably terrible! This movie straight up sucks! Cars 2 is definitely Pixar's worst movie! And they're making another sequel for some reason! Well at least it's taking more of a dark turn and it will be about Lightning McQueen. So hopefully it's better. - MegaSoulhero

I don't hate this movie, but I definitely don't like it. This is definitely the lowest point in Pixar's animated films. By the way, did you see the teaser trailer for Cars 3? It's actually pretty intense. There might be some hope for Cars 3 after all. - phillysports

Cars one was an amazing movie with a wonderful soundtrack, cars two was a joke of a movie with a mess of a plot and a boring theme. I saw a teaser for cars 3 and I have to say I am impressed it looks like it will be a good movie. - Rucas

Liked Cars. Fell asleep in the theater while watching Cars 2. Liked Cars 3.

4 Pocahontas II: Journey to a New World

As much sad I hated the first Pocahontas movie, it had a pretty good ending. So they should've just left it alone. But they decided to make Journey to a New World! Pocahontas goes to England after hearing about John Smith's supposed death. We later find out he isn't dead! So predictable! She also meets John Rolfe! I know they actually did hook up in reality but I still don't really like them as a couple! There are songs in this movie but I don't remember any of them! Radcliffe also returns and his design is just awful! What's up with his mouth? This movie is worse than the original! And that's saying something since in the first movie, they had Pocahontas learn English from THE WIND! - MegaSoulhero

As much as I liked the first Pocahontas movie, it had a pretty good, but also emotional ending to it. So, they should've just let it be. However, the creators decided to make Pocahontas II: Journey to a New World. Maybe they thought that Pocahontas deserved a sequel, so there it was.

So, in this movie, Pocahontas travels to England after hearing about the "so-called" death of John Smith. Later on, we find out he's NOT dead, so we can assume that he somehow managed to survive falling into a river below when Ratcliffe pushes him using his foot. Also, Pocahontas meets John Rolfe and in the ending, they are shown to be kissing, so I could predict that they got married. I know they actually did hook-up in real life, but I would've preffered John Smith instead, since Pocahontas admitted that she loved him in the first film! Oh, yeah, speaking of Ratcliffe, he returns as the main villain in this movie and his design is just awful! What's up with his mouth? This movie's animation is ...more - Stazemar000

Pocahontas has always been a boring movie to me ever since I was a child the first and the second movie suck equally. - Rucas

She chose john rolfe over john smith. they made john smith irritating in the sequel

5 Beauty and the Beast: Belle's Magical World

That scene with Belle and her derp eyes really scares me! I would talk about the plot, but this movie barely has a plot! Just like Cinderella 2, the movie is made up of different segments! They are all terrible! The animation is the worst I've seen in a Disney film! I watched this movie expecting it to be so bad it's good! But it's not! It's just bad! I hope the Beauty and the Beast remake will be good! - MegaSoulhero

I've never heard of this - 1507563

6 The Little Mermaid II: Return to the Sea

Okay, so. I only watched this movie to see whether it was good or bad. But, I have to admit, it wasn't as great.

So, in this movie, Ariel and Eric give birth to a girl named Melody. Didn't think she was great, but she was a little bit tolerable than Ariel. Also, Ursula has a sister named Morgana who was never mentioned in the first film. Basically, Morgana threatens to kill Melody if King Triton doesn't let her have power. In order to keep Melody safe from Morgana, they decide to get advice from Donald Trump and build a wall around the castle to separate it from the sea. Does that part ring a bell? In the first movie, King Triton forbids Ariel from going to the human world. In this movie, Ariel forbids Melody from going to the sea. So, it's basically the same thing with Ariel and her father! Also, why couldn't Ariel just tell her daughter why going into the ocean would be a bad idea, huh?! Ariel is also a hypocrite, since she does not understand Melody's issues even though she ...more - Stazemar000

In the Little Mermaid 2, Ariel and Eric have a kid named Melody. I hate her! But she's still more tolerable than Ariel! Also, Ursula has a sister named Morgana who was never brought up in the first movie and threatens to kill Melody. In order to protect Melody from Morgana, they decide to take Donald Trump's advice and build a wall to separate the castle from the sea. Sound familiar? In the original, Ariel's father forbids her from going to the surface. In this movie, Ariel forbids Melody from going to the ocean! So it's basically the same premise! Also, Ariel is STILL horribly unlikeable! Why couldn't she just tell her daughter why she couldn't go into the sea!? Also, she doesn't understand the problems of Melody even though she herself had the same problems in the first movie! What a hypocrite! Morgana is WAY too similar to Ursula! She even has the same voice as her! This movie has a lot of problems! - MegaSoulhero

Have you read The Little Mermaid book? Its very different to the Disney film and wouldn't have a sequel ever.

There was this one scene where Morgana (Ursula's sister) threatened to kill Melody. So, Ariel and Eric had no choice, but to keep Melody away from the ocean. So, what do they do? Well, there was this other scene where they take Donald Trump's advice and build a big wall around the castle to separate it from the sea! Does that sound familiar? And how did Melody get to the ocean when the wall is around the castle?! I did not see any holes or doorways! She's 10 years old and she's a human! Humans cannot really fly or jump very high, you know.

Speaking of Morgana, she was never brought up in the first film, which is stupid! Morgana is way too similar to Ursula! She even has the same voice actor who played as Ursula in the first movie! - DJMarikaGirl006

7 Planes: Fire & Rescue

The fact that they even made a sequel to the first Planes movie is really surprising! But the fact that they released it less than a year after the first one is even more surprising! But to be honest, the sequel is actually not as bad as the original! It's still pretty bad though! Dusty gets his engine damaged and the parts can't be replaced. Then he joins a fire and rescue team. The storyline is uninteresting, the characters are forgettable, but it's still an improvement over the first one. I think they're original plan was to make Planes a trilogy but I'm pretty sure they're not making a third one. - MegaSoulhero

(in the style of the Tootsie Pop commercial)

Q: Why did they make a sequel to Planes?
A: The world may never know... - phillysports

8 Finding Dory

I Only Put This On The List To Troll You Off - VideoGamefan5

This movie is awesome and you know it!

Not the worst but not as good as I expected it to be. To hell with this movie anyways. Incredibles 2 is where it's at now biatch - Mcgillacuddy

This movie is very good take it off the list

9 The Lion King 2: Simba's Pride

Guilty pleasure. I liked this movie - Mcgillacuddy

I actually liked this movie to be honest. A lot better than The Lion Guard - Stazemar000

This movie was adoable! - Rucas

I liked this. Loads of the sequels on here I've never even heard of The Hunchback of Notre Dame and Mulan had sequels? Never heard of Beauty and the Beast: Belle's Magical World, Pocahontas II: Journey to a New World, The Little Mermaid II: Return to the Sea - with the first why didn't they just stick to the book, Cinderella II: Dreams Come True, Beauty and the Beast: The Enchanted Christmas, Lady and the Tramp II: Scamp's Adventure, The Fox and the Hound 2, Atlantis: Milo's Return, The Lion King 1½, Cinderella III: A Twist in Time, The Jungle Book 2, The Little Mermaid: Ariel's Beginning

10 Cinderella II: Dreams Come True

This sequel was VERY unnecessary! The first movie was good but did people really want a sequel? They should call this movie Dreams DON'T Come True! This movie involves three stories and each one of them involve Cinderella planning an event. I didn't like any of them! The animation isn't that great, the stories are badly written, and it's a huge step backward from the original movie! At least the third one was better than this! - MegaSoulhero

I'm sorry but I really like the sequels - 1507563

The Newcomers

? Leroy & Stitch

The Contenders

11 Return to Neverland

The movie is kinda well hard to explain.
But the Hook one (when he got defeated but the crocodile part is better) in the battle scene is very hilarious.
It's my first Peter Pan film before the second was the first original.

12 Beauty and the Beast: The Enchanted Christmas

A Beauty and the Beast Christmas movie sounds like it would be a great idea! But what we got was an absolute failure! This movie is absolutely horrendous! The plot is that Belle wants to bring Christmas to the castle but Beast forbids it. The reason why he forbids it is because Christmas was the day he was cursed. And in that flashback they showed us, he was an absolute jerk as a human! No wonder he was cursed! He basically has NO reason to hate Christmas! Beast is absolutely unlikeable in this film! I know he was mean in the original, but here he is just cruel! He locked up Belle even though she was doing something nice for him! We are also introduced to a pipe organ named Forte. He is the villain of the film and he is very dull! In fact, most of the characters in this film are dull! I'm also not a fan of the songs! There is a lot of wasted potential in this movie! - MegaSoulhero

13 Fantasia 2000

I actually liked this movie. But, for those that don't, I respect your opinions. - Stazemar000

I love the first Fantasia. It’s the best Disney movie ever. The sequel however...it sucks. Basically the new segments are awful and boring (except for Pomp in Circumstances). Basically the characters don’t add up. And worst of all...WHERE IS CHERNABOG! He’s the reason why Fantasia 1940 was awesome! Without him, a Disney Fantasia sequel will suck. Chernabog is the best Disney Villain ever. This should be on top 10. - asantalo

14 Lady and the Tramp II: Scamp's Adventure

Lady and the Tramp was such a cute movie about two dogs falling in love! It was very popular so it made sense that they wanted to make a sequel! But by making a sequel, they decided to completely rehash the first movie! Yeah, this is basically the first Lady and the Tramp movie, but instead it's about their son named Scamp. Whom I hate! Honestly, they could've chosen ANY of their other kids but they went with Scamp! I don't even know why they even decided to still call it Lady and the Tramp! They're both hardly in it! I would personally stick with the original. - MegaSoulhero

The first lady and the tramp was boring as hell this movie was adorable, funny, and cute it was also targeted at a younger audience - Rucas

I cringed so hard that my face broke! Someone break this movie!

I used to watch this so many times. - asantalo

This is good - 1507563

15 Cinderella III: A Twist in Time

I don't like this movie because the stepmother rewinded time and at the end the prince and Cinderella are in love again and the fairy godmother never changes it back...But the prince never remembers danceing with cinderella

16 Kronk's New Groove
17 The Lion Guard: Return of the Roar

Maybe not a sequel but takes place after a first film, and this film and the show that followed it just sucks and are the worst animated series of the modern era.

This isn't a sequel, but it was a pretty bad movie.

Lion King and Lion King II were good movies, but this just makes me wanna take a wrecking ball to it - Stazemar000

18 The Fox and the Hound 2

This is bad - 1507563

19 Frozen 2

Are they even making this?

Already love it 😁😁why is this even here😕😕

20 Atlantis: Milo's Return

Ugh, thanks to whoever put this movie in. Did not do the original film justice in any way. - Mcgillacuddy

21 The Lion King 1½

This is considered the best Disney direct-to-dvd sequel - PeeledBanana

Pumbaa will go Super Saiyan when he sees this on the list! >:D - The Ultimate Daredevil

22 Tarzan II

Bad Story Bad Supporting Characters Bad Idea Bad As A Whole

I Return Into a Child!

I like it - PeeledBanana

23 Aladdin and the King of Thieves
24 The Jungle Book 2
25 Monsters University
26 Tarzan & Jane
27 The Little Mermaid: Ariel's Beginning
28 Snoopy, Come Home

They could of invited Peppermint patty to see that Snoopy came back at the end.

This isn't for Disney, but it's still an amazing movie.

29 102 Dalmatians
30 Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2

Please, everything I've seen of it in all the trailers is garbage
