Disney Animated Movies - Round 1B


Disney Animated Movies

Is there anything more iconic than Disney animated movies? These are the stories that defined our childhoods. These are the characters that we love more than any others. These are our memories, our histories, and our favorite things. 

1 Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs v 16 A Goofy Movie

The one that started it all, the first full-length animated film from Disney also features the first Disney Princess and the first villain to fall to her death.

It's a buddy movie, it's a father and son movie, and it's a cross-country road trip movie. There's dancing and music and the famed Goofy yell. It's a feel-good film that charmed a whole generation.

8 Zootopia v 9 The Rescuers

The spiritual successor to Robin Hood, this buddy cop comedy spawned a 6 episode TV series, with a reported sequel in the works. And it made a superstar out of a sloth.

Bernard and Bianca are the unlikely heroes of this story about the Rescue Aid Society, an international mouse organization that frees abduction victims across the world.

5 Sleeping Beauty v 12 Treasure Planet

Now a beloved classic, it's hard to believe that, due to its expensive $6 million budget, Sleeping Beauty was considered a box office bomb at the time. Possibly the most enduring character has been Maleficent, the baddest of the Disney baddies.

Disney combined a beloved tale with a sci-fi world with their first non-musical since The Great Mouse Detective. Treasure Planet follows young Jim Hawkins as he encounters the cybernetic pirate John Silver.

4 101 Dalmatians v 13 Fun and Fancy Free

You may not remember the names of any of the dogs (not even Pongo or Perdita), but you certainly remember the villainous Cruella de Vil, who has since been played in live action by Glenn Close and Emma Stone.

This 1947 anthology film includes two Disney shorts: Mickey and the Beanstalk and Bongo. Originally, the Beanstalk short was intended to pair with The Wind in the Willows, but that one would be saved for later.

6 The Emperor's New Groove v 11 Fantasia 2000

The Emperor's New Groove was a box-office disappointment, but the story of an emperor-turned-llama gained a cult following and was the best-selling DVD of 2001.

It took 60 years to make a sequel to the classic Fantasia, but this collection of short films created by pairing traditional animation with cutting-edge computer effects is stunning. Also included is the iconic The Sorcerer's Apprentice.

3 Moana v 14 Chicken Little

The titular character became the 12th Disney Princess, and the first Polynesian one added to the lineup. With music by Lin-Manuel Miranda and a star turn from The Rock, Moana is a modern classic.

Let's be honest: this movie should be featured on MST3K. But it somehow debuted at #1 in the box office (the first Disney film since Dinosaur to do so) and Chicken Little was also a summon monster in the second Kingdom Hearts game, so it has that going for it. The sky is falling!

7 Peter Pan v 10 Winnie the Pooh (2011)

Based on the J.M. Barrie novel, this film features all-time classic Disney charaxters like Tinkerbell, the Lost Boys, and, of course, the great Captain Hook. Second star to the right and straight on tlll morning!

The 2011 Winnie the Pooh movie lacked some of the charm of the 1977 film, but it did feature several adorable songs by Zooey Deschanel. And, at the end of the day, it's a Winnie the Pooh movie, so it's great.

2 The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh v 15 Atlantis: The Lost Empire

Winnie the Pooh and Tigger, too! What else can be said? This movie is pure wholesomeness. And don't forget the Heffalumps and Woozles!

Michael J. Fox voices young Milo Thatch, a linguist who uncovers a way to reach the mythical city of Atlantis. Can Milo recover the Heart of Atlantis and save Kida's people?
