Disney Animated Movies - Round 2AB


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 Beauty and the Beast v 9 The Sword in the Stone

The first animated movie to have been nominated for Best Motion Picture, this movie was probably the hallmark of the Disney Renaissance.

This retelling of the legend of King Arthur is full of magic and hilarity. Merlin comes through as a zany, fun wizard with an owl sidekick who bumbles his way to helping Arthur save the day.

5 Mulan v 4 Tangled

Despite not canonically marrying royalty, Mulan is considered Disney's first Chinese princess. And Eddie Murphy as the voice of Mushu is absolutely iconic.

The 50th animated Disney movie, Tangled fully moved the company into the 3D animated era. Remember, Mother knows best!

6 Robin Hood v 3 Bambi

Sure, half the scenes are copy/pasted from other movies. No, the half British/half American accents don't make any sense. But with Roger Miller's unforgettable narration and songs, who cares?

Bambi contains only about 950 words of dialogue, but manages to convey deep emotion all the same. Where were you when you heard Bambi's mother died?

7 Tarzan v 2 Aladdin

Considered the last film of the Disney Renaissance era, Tarzan is probably best remembered for its soundtrack by Phil Collins.

Robin Williams made the Genie so unforgettable, Disney even named their fast lane system after the character.

1 Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs v 8 Zootopia

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.

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.

5 Sleeping Beauty v 4 101 Dalmatians

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.

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.

6 The Emperor's New Groove v 3 Moana

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.

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.

7 Peter Pan v 2 The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh

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!

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