Disney Animated Movies - Round 2CD


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 The Lion King v 8 Alice in Wonderland

In this modern retelling of Hamlet, Mufasa's death singlehandedly traumatized an entire generation. But hey... hakuna matata, right?

Probably the trippiest of all of the features, this loosely held together collection of stories and character from the mind of Lewis Carroll is strange, hilarious, and beautiful. It's given us legends like the Cheshire Cat, the Queen of Hearts, and the Mad Hatter.

5 Lady and the Tramp v 4 The Princess and the Frog

Billed as Disney's Happiest Film, this movie was the first animated film created in the Cinescope Widescreen format. And you'll never look at spaghetti the same way.

Starring Disney's first African-American princess, this movie explores the history and culture of New Orleans. The evil conjurer Dr. Facilier provides one of Disney's scariest villians.

6 Lilo & Stitch v 3 Dumbo

The story of a little girl and her unlikely pet is one of the highlights of the post-Renaissance era. Remember, Ohana means family!

Although the casual racism hasn't aged well, Disney's fourth animated film celebrates that what makes us different is often a gift in disguise. It's visually striking, especially the famous "Pink Elephants on Parade" sequence.

7 The Jungle Book v 2 Frozen

This bear necessity about young Mowgli comes from the Rudyard Kipling novel and introduces some all time great animal characters - Begheera, King Louie, Shere Khan, Kaa, and one of the great Disney legends, Baloo the Bear.

For 6 years, Frozen reigned as the highest-grossing animated film of all time...and Let It Go is the biggest earworm of all time. The story of Anna and Elsa absolutely owned pop culture in the early 2010s.

1 The Little Mermaid v 8 Wreck-it Ralph

The movie that kickstarted the Disney Renaissance, it taught kids many important words, like "Dinglehopper," and we all got to explore what life is like "Under the Sea."

An unlikely duo proves what had long been thought impossible: It IS possible to make good movies about video games. They did not, in fact, wreck it. And the voices of John C. Reilly and Sarah Silverman were perfect casting.

5 Encanto v 4 Fantasia

Disney's 50th animated film introduced an unforgettable family! Just don't talk about Bruno. Encanto was a megahit for Disney, and the soundtrack hit number one in the US and UK.

In some ways Silly Symphonies brought to the big screen, Fantasia is probably best known for the Sorcerer's Apprentice, featuring Mickey as an apprentice to a wizard who misuses spells to get out of chores. But Fantasia is regarded as a masterwork of animation, music, and cinema.

6 Hercules v 3 Cinderella

Hercules is notable for many reasons--the hilarious script, the catchy songs, the memorable characters--but the real star was James Woods as Hades.

With a bibbity-bobbity-boo, Cinderella perhaps single-handedly saved Disney from bankruptcy. It's full of iconic characters and songs. In the 73 years since its release, Cinderella has cemented itself as a legendary Disney film.

10 Meet the Robinsons v 2 Pinocchio

2007's Meet the Robinsons is weird, hilarious, and moving. This story about family and evil bowler hats will change the way you look at science fairs forever.

While many story choices would never fly today, the song "When You Wish Upon A Star" remains a Disney icon, and Jiminy Cricket is one of the greatest Disney characters of all time.
