The Walt Disney Animation Library, Ranked From Worst To Best

Previous1 of 52

Disney Disney had made an unconventional “franchise” out of remaking its animated classics as live-action blockbusters. Combined with their Pixar, Marvel, and Star Wars stables, it has ensured the company’s continued domination in the film sphere. Maleficent, Cinderella, and The Jungle Book were at the forefront of that charge the last few years. Now, with Beauty and the Beast hitting theaters (our review here), now is a great time to look back at Disney’s amazing animated catalog and how they stack up against each other.

Disney has had a lot of animated films released theatrically or direct-to-video, sometimes in collaboration with other studios. This list specifically focuses on those from the Walt Disney Animation department, so sorry Brave Little Toaster fans, of which I’m one. No Pixar flicks either, but fans of that studio are in luck, as we ranked their films last summer. You can check that list out below.

I haven’t seen Saludos Amigos, Make Music Mine, Song of the South, Melody Time, Fun and Fancy Free, & The Three Caballeros, hence their exclusionNaturally, we’ll most likely disagree about the specific ordering. Let’s think of it as a conversation starter. I’d love to hear what you guys think in the comments!

    You want me to click through 52 different pages? Nah bro.

  • Sabre777

    This whole formatting of forcing us to click through pages is terrible. It is an off put, and it is not just this article.

  • Don S Gichuhi

    I know a list is somebody’s pick and their opinion but this one seems like a joke esp the Top 25

    • Vegas82

      Yeah, it’s like he drew them from a hat to decide the rankings. Especially when you read his reasoning.

  • Axxell

    You know, you could’ve at least made it so it shows 2 per page…but you got greedy…

  • G.I.Jew

    Ok, it’s just Disney movies put in random order.

  • Joe Chaisson

    Luckily this is just your opinion because I highly disagree with this list. But I will say Robin Hood surprisingly, in a good way, list high. I will give applause for that.

    Lady and the Tramp at the bottom BOOOOO!
    Sleeping Beauty in the middle? It is fantastic because of the music BOOOOO
