Top 10 Worst Disney Movies of the 21st Century

MegaSoulhero
Disney has had a lot of good movies this century! But they have also had a lot of bad ones.

The Top Ten

1 Home on the Range

SUCK SUCK SUCKITY SUCK! This is one of the worst animated films ever made! There isn't a word to describe how terrible it is! It's so stupid, it's so childish! This is the kind of movie that can make kids stupid! This is a whole new level of bad! The villain is annoying, the songs are horrendous, and the story is just plain stupid! How did something like this make it into theaters!? I've only seen this movie once and don't plan on ever watching it again! It is absolutely terrible! - MegaSoulhero

I legitimately got dumber after watching it. - SPM1_TopTenz

I love Home on the range! I haven't watched it in a while though. Maybe I'll hate it now. - GrimmShady

One word: EW! - naFrovivuS

2 Frozen

Enough is enough! Two things! One, it's only been one day since this list was made and somehow Frozen is already at second place despite there not being many votes or remixes for it. Two, all this Frozen hate is just starting to get irritating. Every single day, people keep relentlessly bashing and hating on it like no movie is worse than it. All because of stupid excuses like "the songs" or "it's overrated". Look, I haven't watched Frozen myself, but even I know that the scale of hatred aimed against it is just unbearable and blatantly obnoxious. Can't we just accept that people are going to like this movie and respect its success? Why force people to hate it and shove your hatred down their throats in the process as well? Seriously, can't the Frozen hate bandwagon die down already? - ModernSpongeBobSucks

True. I used to be on this bandwagon but I've come to terms with this film. Now I just think it's okay. To be honest I feel like more of the Frozen hate should go to Sleeping Beauty because literally the only memorable things about that movie were Maleficent, the animation, and Once Upon A Dream. I'm sorry but Aurora and Phillip were as bland as heck and the fairies irritated me too much. - Anonymousxcxc

I'm sick of this whole hating Frozen crap. People had this movie ruined due to the fans. And the music. But you know what? It has a decent story. Home On The Range was just stupid. Planes was just stupider. And TEEN BEACH and CHICKEN LITTLE are far worse than this. Give the hate a break. - naFrovivuS

Would've been better if Anna was the villain who avenges her pain and suffering and all of her true, real, old, original memories of Elsa's ice powers and the childhood accident in order to get her revenge on Elsa for shutting her out for past thirteen years ago, their parents for neglecting Anna in the focus on Elsa and especially Grand Pabbie for erasing all of Anna's true, real, old, original memories of Elsa's ice powers and the childhood accident.

Frozen would've been more classical if Hans followed the tradition of other Disney princes and true love, right?

3 Planes

I'm not gonna talk too much about this movie right now. But basically, it's a generic movie with a very generic story. I'm actually gonna review this in a blog post later this month. That reminds me. I still need to review the first four Pirates of the Caribbean films. - MegaSoulhero

Planes is so boring! The kids being interviewed about this movie didn't know how to describe it. When I went to the cinema to see it, the whole place was empty. There is nothing to see. It's so plain. It didn't need a sequel, either. - RaccoonCartoon

This was horrible, it's just the movie Cars turned into Planes, but even more boring. - micahisthebest

This movie is terrible. I HAD to watch it with my little sister because it was her birthday. The movie was cheesy and it had nonsense and two different subjects at one time. It was horrible. Sometimes the guy never had shadows... Frozen, Mulan 2, Inspector Gadget, Alice in Wonderland, and Brother Bear are good or okay.
Frozen=good Mulan 2=okay Inspector Gadget=good Alice in Wonderland=good Brother Bear=good
None of these are really the worst.

4 The Wild

I'm just gonna say what has already been said. This movie is a ripoff of Madagascar! It is so obvious! This is a very unoriginal movie! It's about some animals in a zoo in New York and they leave the zoo and go on some adventure. This is CLEARLY Madagascar! Except in this movie, I didn't like any of the characters! They were just so bland and forgettable! There are a few jokes I laughed at, but this is mostly just a boring movie! The animation is pretty good but at times it can look a little too weird. This movie is just a boring, forgettable movie! Just watch Madagascar instead. - MegaSoulhero

It absolutely is TERRIBLE. It ripped off a great film called Madagascar. - PeeledBanana

Discount Madagascar. - JustAnAccount

I think the animation from the trailer looks VERY unfinished. The final product is just fugly. - SPM1_TopTenz

5 Mulan II

Mulan 2 is garbage! Absolute garbage! Terrible movie! Worst Disney sequel ever! Anyone who likes this movie clearly doesn't know what a good movie is! It's very unwatchable! There is nothing good about it! No redeeming qualities! Why did they have to make Mushu such a jerk? This movie has a terrible case of character derailment. All the characters I liked in the first movie, I hate in this one! Mulan is completely out of character! She acts like such a stereotypical girl in this movie! In the first one, she put honor and family before anything else. But here, she lets an entire country get destroyed because of love! This movie is absolute trash and definitely deserves its 0% on Rotten Tomatoes. TERRIBLE! - MegaSoulhero

The original Mulan was awesome, a well though out, amazing movie, but uh oh, of course, it's... the... sequel now. Really Disney, really? What happened! I had high expectations for this movie because it's the dang sequel of MULAN! But when I first saw this, I was extremely disappointed, such a stupid film, plain stupid. - PeeledBanana

There are bad sequels, there are obscure sequels, and then there's Mulan II. It blows both categories out of the water.

Haha. I'm shocked that other people realize just how GARBAGE this sequel is. I love disney sequels but this one. oh god. just...so...so bad. it takes the original and just spits on it. ugh.

6 Cars 2

SHUT UP! This movie is absolutely fine! Its entertaining, it has beautiful animation, stellar voice acting. My only complaint is the plot. It places focus in the wrong place. But other than that good film. - GrimmShady

Well... It wasn't my favorite Pixar movie but it wasn't that bad I guess, I really liked the original Cars, great film but this, well at least it's not as bad as Mulan 2, I actually kind of liked Cars 2, it was okay... - PeeledBanana

I love seeing people get so argumentive over a dumb kids movie. - cjWriter1997

Not the best Pixar has thought of, but I think it was, meh. - naFrovivuS

7 Chicken Little

When I was a kid, I actually liked this movie. But after watching it again, I see that it is a very messed up movie. This is the most mean-spirited movie that Disney has come out with! It doesn't even feel like a Disney movie! It feels like it was made by some other animation company trying to be like Disney! I can't think of a single character I liked in the film! They are all just so unlikeable! Especially Buck Cluck played by Disney legend, Garry Marshall. He is the worst father ever. Although, he kind of reminds me of how my father treated me when I was a kid. But Buck is still pretty terrible! There are a couple of jokes I laughed at. There are some cute moments. But this movie is a mess! I don't know what Disney was thinking with this one. - MegaSoulhero

Same dude. But thank god it wasn't a Disney film I remembered or really had on my favorites list at all. - Anonymousxcxc

Why on Earth is Home On the Range #1? Sure the protagonists are cows and the villain is the worst in the canon but I like the animation and voice acting. This, on the other hand, is mean-spirited, littered with pop cultural references, has horrible animation and voice acting, lousy story and characters and literally nothing redeeming about it whatsoever.

Like Cars 2, the hate against chicken little is unmerited. Chicken little had good voice actors, good animation, good dialogue. Its just the plot that was a bit off. - GrimmShady

Personally, I don't think Frozen needs to be on this list. I know, it's the most overrated Disney film ever. But that doesn't mean it's bad! The animation, the voice acting, the story, the characters, I had fun with. And I'll admit it, "Let It Go" isn't as bad as I remember it. Not one of my favorites, but still enjoyable in my opinion.

Chicken Little, though...why did I like this movie again? Oh yeah, cause I was a dumb kid. This film is terrible and needs to take the #1 spot. Reasons?

1. Animation is terrible.
2. Story and characters are mean spirited.
3. We're not introduced to the villains until halfway through the movie and are pretty pathetic in my opinion.

Are you seeing the reasons why this film needs to be #1?! - OnyxDash

8 Mars Needs Moms

This movie is terrible. Just the title alone should be enough to keep you away from the movie. It was made by ImageMovers. The people who made Polar Express, Christmas Carol, and Beowulf. The thing I like most about them is the motion capture. They do a really great job at making the characters look like real people! Mars Needs Moms, however, is a HORRIBLE example of that! The characters don't even look like real people! They look hideous! Even the aliens in the movie look better than them! The story also doesn't make any sense. I really hate the character Milo! He's the main character who we're supposed to root for but they just make him so unlikeable! This movie shouldn't have been made. - MegaSoulhero

Nothing Makes Seances, The Characters Are Annoying, The Animation Is Horrible And It's One Of The Few Disney Films That I Don't Even Think Needs To Eggiest The Movie Was Un Funny And Boring To Watch And The Main Character Is Worse Then Buck Cluck.

The animation is terrible! - micahisthebest

Not only is its plot stupid, its animation is horrendous. I think nothing else needs to be said. - naFrovivuS

9 High School Musical

I'd rather be sent to the core of the sun than watch this movie and its sequels.

Roger Waters Saucerful of secrets song, Set Controls for the heart of the sun will have you covered. - RogerWatersfan1999

Imagine if Selena Gomez portrayed Gabriella Montez! - The Ultimate Daredevil, shuddering because of that very thought as if Justin Bieber were similar to Troy Bolton, Selena Gomez were similar to Gabriella Montez and Ariana Grande were similar to Sharpay Evans like in that poolside scene in HSM2 whereas Troy Bolton and Gabriella Montez break up because they are all like "We don't talk anymore like we used to do! >8(".

Whenever I watch this movie, I want to cut my eyeballs out of their sockets with a knife, and rip my ear drums out with forks! - RogerWatersfan1999

The Most Generic Musical Of All Time. - GigaDrill

10 The Hunchback of Notre Dame II

Worst Disney Sequel ever! - td05

The animation in the first movie was so wonderful! I liked the most characters and the story was interesting, with a fantastic villain. Why did that movie need a sequel? T^T

I shared my thoughts on these Disney movies which htoutlaws2012 replied to. - The Ultimate Daredevil, who loves The Hunchback of Notre Dame for its meaningfulness, cinematic animation, dark subject matter, intense musical numbers and deep characters and hates The Hunchback of Notre Dame II for its ugly animation that shows that hand-drawn animation is drawing, thinly written characters, dull musical numbers and infantile tone

The last part ugh... anyway you summed pretty much what I describe this awfulness of regression. - htoutlaws2012

The Contenders

11 Brother Bear

Why is this here? The critics are wrong, this movie is amazing - Neonco31

Brother bear was fantastic! Brother bear 2 is actually my least favorite disney animated movie of all time! - GrimmShady

What!? Why is this movie here? I love this movie! One of the best movies ever if you ask me, people should watch it! I tell ya, you won't regret it!

Awesome movie Tangled is worse

12 Teen Beach Movie

There is no such thing as a good Disney Channel Original Movie! Okay? All of them suck! And the worst of the bunch is Teen Beach Movie! This is a perfect example of the things wrong with Disney Channel! Terrible songs, annoying characters, and makes no sense! So after wiping out while surfing, they suddenly get transported into a beach musical that they just so happened to be watching earlier!? What were the writers smoking when coming up with this story? It can be a little funny at times when they make fun of musical tropes, but they are still guilty of doing those tropes! Like at the end, WHEN THEY ARE OUT OF THE MOVIE, they still have a musical number! Seriously!? You just spent most of this movie talking about how ridiculous that is and then you go ahead and do a musical number in the real world!? Where's the logic!? This isn't the worst musical I've seen, but it flat out sucks. - MegaSoulhero

Wow was this one stupidly terrible. - naFrovivuS

You can tell it's bad just by the name. And yes, I will judge a book (or movie) by it's cover, because, well, it's Disney. - JustAnAccount

Let it shaine was good

13 Inspector Gadget 2

I wanna put this movie in the go-go-gadget-garbage. - Jackamalio

Stupid movie. Killed a few brain cells from watching this. - naFrovivuS

Go go gadget glitches

Gadget sleeping get interrupted by his gadget phone sigh sweet meries

14 Hannah Montana: The Movie

If you like Hannah Montana, I guess you'll like this movie. - Jackamalio

The only good song in this movie was the climb. - Cartoonfan202

It's a nice movie.

I think Ariana Grande wrote "It's a nice movie. >:("! *shudders*

15 Inspector Gadget
16 The Lion King 1½

This should be a lot higher. After what is widely considered the greatest Disney film of all time, we had a somewhat decent sequel with the pros and cons fairly balanced, but this is atrocious. I get that it's supposed to be The Lion King from Timon & Pumba's point of view, but I would've enjoyed this movie a lot more if it were just those two. Instead, we needed to see Timon's family come back in the end, even though that never happened the original film. This, in my opinion ruined this movie. Maybe if it were just the two characters that I've come to know on screen at the end of the movie, I could've enjoyed this film a lot more. It was a creative idea to tell the story from the duo's perspective, but it just wasn't executed as well as it could've been.

Agree so much. The whole TLK franchise is bad.

What's this movie doing here? I actually really liked the film. Personally, I find the TLK sequels to be very underrated. They're not as good as the first one, but I still really liked them nonetheless. This one, I especially liked.

It is nice to give Timon & Pumbaa some character development since, to be honest, they were kinda just there as Simba's sidekicks in the first two films. The songs themselves are catchy, we get a nice supporting cast, and some pretty hilarious moments between the two. Especially when they break the fourth wall and they're actually watching the movie with us. Rewinding, pausing, all that good stuff.

Overall, this film doesn't deserve to be on this list. It's not perfect, but it's definitely one of the Top 3 Best Direct to DVD/Video Disney Sequels. (along with Lion King 2 & Aladdin 3, in my opinion, of course.) - OnyxDash

17 G-Force

The first movie I ever watched had to be this monstrosity. - naFrovivuS

Possibly the worst film I've ever watched - Kronolith

NaFrovivuS same!

I remember watching it and playong the game on Disney 's site. I like this movie - BlueTopazIceVanilla

18 Underdog

I watched this about 4000 times by the time I was 7 years old - JustAnAccount

Myth dog can be a superhero

19 The Fox and the Hound 2

This film was entirely pointless. - SailorSedna

Why sequels - LOTP

20 Zootopia

We all know who added this.

People didn't like it just because furry? - TailsTheFox

So Overrated

OVERrated - VideoGamefan5

21 Tim Burton's Alice In Wonderland

From best to worst we got Jungle Book, Pete's Dragon, Cinderella, 101 Dalmatians, Beauty and the Beast, Maleficent, and Alice in Wonderland. I'm not sure if I should call this a remake considering it's a continuation of the original animated film. But whatever. It sucks. This doesn't even feel like Alice in Wonderland! It shouldn't even be called Alice in Wonderland! In the movie, they refer to the place as "underland". The title is click bait! There are some pretty good performances in the movie like Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter, but Helena Bonham Carter was terrible as the Red Queen! She does not fit the part! It's like casting Emma Stone as Cruella De Vil in a Cruella movie! Wait, they're actually doing that? Oh god! But anyway, Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland is a film that never should've happened. - MegaSoulhero

It is an O.K. movie! - Victoryboy

22 Avengers: Age of Ultron

I understand why people like it! But to be honest, this movie is no more than a huge toy commercial! There I said it! Good thing, Civil War made up for this garbage!

This is worse than the force awakens! The force awakens is amazing! this is just disappointing like rogue one and iron man 3!

23 Cars
24 Cinderella II - Dreams Come True

Whoa- don't smack little kids like your very young selves for having an opinion. You only liked Cinderella II - Dreams Come True, that's all. You did not disrespect negative opinions on this Cinderella sequel even though Cinderella III - A Twist In Time is surprisingly awesome. If I reviewed the original Cinderella, it would be a little too similar to Disneycember - Cinderella. - The Ultimate Daredevil, who finds Cinderella II - Dreams Come True to be one of the weakest Disney movies despite its good animation/cast

I embarrassingly will admit I liked this as a kid too...good Lord, if only I could go back in time and smack my 7 year old self... - SailorSedna

25 Star Wars: The Force Awakens

This movie practically ruined my childhood, when I was a kid Star Wars was my life. This will NEVER be true Star Wars to me, nor will any subsequent Disney produced Star Wars media.

This is ABOVE MERMAID 2. Are you kidding? - JustAnAccount

Everyone should vote for this movie because of Hans death. I hate you JJ Abrams

Oh ham solo died this movie sucked yada yada ya! People, are you that stupid?! Just because Han Solo died, doesn't mean you should hate this movie! Rouge one was worse! You people have horrible taste

26 Sofia the First: Once Upon a Princess

I will say this in a non-greedy way. I couldn't be more grateful that my comment was liked. Even if it did not happen, I stay calm instead of be butthurt. I will elaborate. So, we could not really do with the existence of Disney Junior, but it so does not deserve movies. Sofia the First: Once Upon a Princess is the only Disney Princess franchise that is literally for very young, female children only (and I thought that unlike Nickelodeon, Mattel and Hasbro, Disney would never do this at all even though it is only once). I do not hate Home on the Range, but its execution could be so much better (re: not babyish in so many ways). If I said why I love Fantasia so much, my reasoning would be like that of Nostalgia Critic, AniMat, PhantomStrider and etc. - The Ultimate Daredevil

Oh my gosh... this makes Home on the Range look like Fantasia.

27 Wreck It Ralph

HOW ARE THE LORAX, HOTEL TRANSYLVANAI AND ICE AGE: CONTINENTIAL DRIFT THE BEST ANIMATED MOVIES OF 2012 INSTEAD OF WRECK-IT RALPH?! IS IT BECAUSE OF ONE-DIMENSIONAL CELEBRITY GUESTS, TEEN STEREOTYPES AND ETC?! >8(

28 Wendy Wu: Homecoming Warrior

The only good thing: Power Rangers actors were in it. (Specifically the Blue Ranger from Ninja Storm and Yellow Ranger from Jungle Fury.) - OnyxDash

It's boring and the acting is bad.

I mean to say "pre-2010s", not "post 2010s". - The Ultimate Daredevil, a fan of warrior girls

Why do these post-2010s Disney Channel shows like Zenon: Girl of the 21st Century, Wendy Wu: Homecoming Warrior, Hrse Call, Jump In! and Halloweentown get so much hate?! >:(

29 Teen Beach 2

Atrocious sequel - Cartoonfan202

THEY MADE A SEQUEL!

30 Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

OK, in MY opinion, I've seen the movie and it was actually quite good. I'm not a hardcore Star Wars fan but I found it somewhat enjoyable

31 Muppets Most Wanted
32 Iron Man 3
33 Thor: The Dark World

Doug Walker was right. The Dark World does not have as much as an atmospheric darkness as we expected. Not only that, but what the hell is with the screen time Natalie Portman's character has?! I wish to bang Natalie Portman and we finally get the chance to learn about a character, but what was The Walt Disney Company's reasoning behind this?! It is surprisingly not that bad that Disney owned Marvel by how it is executed in more movies than just The Avengers trilogy and Big Hero 6, but Disney is wasting its money by buying companies, especially Pixar. - The Ultimate Daredevil

34 The Princess and the Frog
35 Camp Rock

I fell asleep during that one. - JustAnAccount

More like Camp Suck. - Cartoonfan202

36 Beauty and the Beast (2017)
37 Stitch! the Movie

Another Lilo and Stitch Sequel - LOTP

My review of Stitch: The Movie would be a bit too similar to Disneycember - Stitch: The Movie. - The Ultimate Daredevil, who is extremely furious that his list of worst Disney franchises on the list of "Top Ten Reasons to Hate Disney" getting thumbed down for having these current Disney Channel shows like Jessie, A. N. T. Farm, Disney Junior and Shake It Up! on that list instead of Lilo & Stitch, Toon Disney and many animated Disney blockbusters on the list because people are both racist and sexist

38 Maleficent

Way to ruin one of the best Disney villains ever! I mean, come on! She was know as the mistress of evil but they decided to make her a misunderstood woman who doesn't want to be mean! There are some things in this film that kind of remind me of Frozen. Even the part where Maleficent wakes Aurora up is similar to Elsa unfreezing Anna with her love. Basically, Aurora is Anna and Maleficent is Elsa. And they pretty much ruined such an iconic scene from Sleeping Beauty. The three fairies are complete idiots, the prince is very bland, but I will admit that Angelina Jolie is pretty good as Maleficent. It's too bad her character was poorly written. - MegaSoulhero

Basically Frozen in black and green - TwilightKitsune

39 Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest
40 Winnie the Pooh

I saw this at the theater, and the entire theater was empty except for me and my family...Wasn't too bad though, but I was a little kid back then. - JustAnAccount

This movie completely BUTCHERED the Disney Winnie the Pooh franchise. So much unfunny slapstick humor which seemed to be the basis of the film, character assassinations, especially with Kanga and Rabbit, an unoriginal story that's a rip-off of Pooh's Grand Adventure: The Search for Christopher Robin (great film), hit and miss voice acting (while Jim Cummings can still do Pooh and Tigger and Bud Lucky is good as Eeyore, Tom Kenny, who is so talented as SpongeBob, the Mayor of Townsville and Patchy the Pirate is horribly miscast as Rabbit), mostly awful songs, the only good thing going for it is the animation and the ending credits with the actual stuffed animals imitating scenes from the movies. Yes, the END CREDITS sequence is much more enjoyable.

Thank God I just borrowed it from the library and saw Harry Potter Deathly Hallows Part 2 (which also sucks) instead of accidentally wasting money on it in the theaters. - SailorSedna

If you thought that Winnie the Pooh (2011) was bad, wait until you see the Winnie the Pooh series for babies. - The Ultimate Daredevil who loves Winnie the Pooh (2011) and finds The Book of Pooh to be above-par, but hates My Friends Tigger & Pooh too much

41 Toy Story 3

It's not a good Pixar movie and its scary for the little ones when like the creepy doll kid naps toys
It was also sad when he gets rid of his toys

Well it is the most emotional of the trilogy, why do I get this feeling 4 might be the new weakest link in 2019? - htoutlaws2012

42 The Good Dinosaur

What I don't understand is why the animation for the scenery and landscape is so good, and the animation for the animals is crap. Did they do it on purpose? - JustAnAccount

So Boring - VideoGamefan5

43 The Muppets
44 Iron Man 2
45 The Little Mermaid II: Return to the Sea

I actually liked this movie - BlueTopazIceVanilla

Seaquels are allways bad - LOTP

46 Treasure Planet

Bad - LOTP

47 Leroy and Stitch

Bet you didn't know this exists - LOTP

48 Cinderella III: A Twist in Time

Sequels for Cinderella
- Time Travel - LOTP

49 Kronk's New Groove

Bad as Well - LOTP

50 Tarzan II

Oh, now he's a kid again! (In mind) I swear to god why - LOTP
