The question "what is your favorite Disney movie?" covers so many different things that I have decided to narrow this question down to only the OG Disney movies. What is you favorite Disney Animation Studios movie?

#1 Posted by DarthOrange (3891 posts) -

I personally love Hercules. I love the sassy black narrators. I love Danny DeVito as the grumpy trainer. I love the aesthetic of it all. This movie is fantastic.

This was actually a really tough question for me, and I'm not really sure I even gave an accurate answer. On the one hand, I've always really loved the classic Disney films that were done with traditional animation. Aladdin, The Lion King and Mulan were some of my favorite Disney films growing up. However, since around the turn of the century/millenium, few of the movies that Disney Animation Studios created actually piqued my interest. It was Tangled that showed me that they Disney could still create films that evoked that classic feel and emotion with modern 3D animation. I also really love Wreck-It Ralph, for it appeals to my love of both animation and video games, but Tangled managed to really evoke that feeling of youthful excitement that I felt when I watched Disney movies growing up, so that's what I chose.

I do feel kind of bad for picking a movie that came out three years ago considering the choices go back over three quarters of a century and the entirety of my life, but I could have spent a lot longer thinking about this question and not even come up with an answer, so I'll go with that.

Most definitely Aladdin. Although, Hercules was a very close second.

#4 Posted by casper_ (910 posts) -

i like a lot of the later ones like aladdin, mulan etc but i really love the older ones from the 30s-50's mainly because the music is always incredible. so i voted for alice.

#5 Edited by Caustic_Fox (112 posts) -

Fantasia. Even after 70+ years of when it was made, it still is pure gorgeous eye candy. Thats one thing about 3D animation that can't touch traditional 2D. 2D animation never ages. It always holds its spark lit. I re-watched Transformers: Beast Wars not long ago, and honestly, some parts were hard to even watch. It looks like shit, to be put bluntly. Catch my drift? Computer animation has a short lived spark.

I won't boast, but Fantasia's version (or rather, Leopold Stokowski's) of Toccata & Fugue in D minor is my favorite out of the variety.

#6 Posted by StarvingGamer (8549 posts) -

The Emperor's New Groove

Fucking love that movie

#7 Posted by casper_ (910 posts) -

@caustic_fox: that's a good choice. night on bald mountain really freaked me out as a kid.

#8 Edited by newhaap (437 posts) -

Tangled, just because I'm so very glad to see Disney brave enough to go back to its roots and put out something close to the quality of their classics again (although I bet John Lasseter being involved in that movie is a pretty huge part of it turning out so good)

#9 Posted by Hunter5024 (5959 posts) -

My 3 favorites are Aladdin, The Lion King, and Hercules in that order. This is most likely due to being a child of the 90s. I'm rather fond of most of these now that you mention it though.

#10 Edited by Caustic_Fox (112 posts) -

@casper_: Night on Bald Mountain intrigued me instead. Its that fucking moving rock/stone thing from Toccata & Fugue that gave me nightmares.

Skip to 8:33 for that creepy rock bastard.

Look for the bare necessities

The simple bare necessities

Forget about your worries and your strife

I mean the bare necessities

That's why a bear can rest at ease

With just the bare necessities of life

The Lion King. It's my second favorite movie ever, right behind Back to the Future.

#14 Posted by audioBusting (1672 posts) -

I'm surprised how many people voted for Hunchback of Notre Dame (so did I). That and Princess and the Frog are my favorites, but I've mostly forgotten the other movies..

#15 Edited by Video_Game_King (36272 posts) -

It's amazing how many I have never heard of. The hell is Fun and Fancy Free?

#16 Posted by JacDG (2130 posts) -

So I guess this is why parents can't pick a favorite kid. I chose Mulan, but I love most of these movies have a very, very special place in my heart.

#17 Posted by MattyFTM (14432 posts) -

I picked Fantasia because Fantasia is amazing.

But upon seeing the results - why has no one picked Bambi? Or Dumbo? Those are both amazing movies too.

Aladdin just fantastic. Next would have been Hercules, Beauty and the Beast and The Lion King.

#19 Edited by Nightriff (5328 posts) -

Beauty and the Beast, COME AT ME BRO! I'LL KNIFE YOU IF YOU GOTS A PROBLEM WITH MY CHOICE

#20 Edited by Tylea002 (2295 posts) -

Come on, who picked Tangled? That movie is have cake and eat it to the worst degree, despite being fantastic for most of it's run time.

I voted Wreck-It-Ralph, because whilst I know that shit ain't classic, it spoke to me on a level that I never expected it to. I wrote a long blog way back when explaining it, but short version: I hope that film isn't just seen as good, but influential.

#21 Edited by MikkaQ (10344 posts) -

I picked The Aristocats because I loved that movie when I was a kid. But now I really don't watch anything Disney, and I realized I never really liked them all that much. Looney Tunes has always appealed more to my brand of humor.

#22 Edited by RazielCuts (2986 posts) -

It's crazy to think how old some of these films are and how well they still hold up. I went for Aladdin, toss up between the Lion King and Aladdin and which I'd rather watch if it was on TV and I'd say Aladdin.

Now...where's Kingdom Hearts III?! Patricks rant about Square a few bombcast's ago was spot on, this and (FF VII HD/Remake) are obvious money makers, just do it already!

#23 Posted by Cyrus_Saren (540 posts) -

Beauty and the Beast.

#24 Edited by UlquioKani (1180 posts) -

The Great Mouse Detective is my favourite, followed closely by Aladdin. Apart from Chicken Little, I like a lot of those movies.

#25 Edited by phuzzybunny (173 posts) -

Fantasia for all the reasons @caustic_fox said. The marrying of music and superb animation is the best.

#26 Posted by uniform (1838 posts) -

Lady and the Tramp

^^^ Knows what is up ^^^

#28 Edited by Butano (1786 posts) -

Ooof, this is always a toughy for me. It's probably Aladdin due to how many times I've watched that movie, though I would say it's in a dead tie with Mulan and The Great Mouse Detective.

EDIT: Best music goes to Hunchback though. God I love that Hellfire theme.

#29 Edited by notdavid (842 posts) -

I'm surprised to see so much love for Aladdin. Aside from two songs, I didn't care for a lot of it. Robin Williams was way too Robin Williams.

But god damn, were those two songs fantastic.

#30 Posted by WasabiCurry (425 posts) -

Alice in Wonderland is my favorite Walt Disney film! After that, it would be The Lion King. :3

#31 Posted by notdavid (842 posts) -

I'm listening to A Whole New World right now. Is this song about boning?

"Unbelievable size. Indescribable feeling."

"Don't you dare close your eyes. Hold your breath. It's better."

#32 Posted by Dimsey (964 posts) -

It's definitely a tie between Robin Hood and Beauty & The Beast for me.
Love them both a great deal.

Sights. Not size, though that doesn't really much either.

#34 Posted by abomunist (120 posts) -

Hm. I don't like a single one of those movies.

#35 Posted by WinterSnowblind (7617 posts) -

I've always been a big fan of Hercules. Never understood why it didn't seem to reach the same level of recognition as Aladdin or the Lion King. It's really easy to identify with, has a great theme and some of the best Disney songs ever.

#36 Posted by GunstarRed (5448 posts) -

Aladdin is my favourite of their old 2D films. It has great animation, songs and characters. As for their CGI stuff Tangled is great, but has some really poor songs.

During World War II Disney was tasked with making propaganda pieces to aid in the war effort. Thus they were unable to produce full length movies for the duration of the war. Instead they made a series of "package" films which are just compilations of short cartoons.

Saludos Amigos and The Three Caballeros were also propaganda films of sorts, which dealt with Disney's trip to South America to promote US interests in those countries.

Yea shocked at no Bambi or Dumbo. Both are incredible movies. Personally I picked The Lion King, but I am a huge fan of the first five Disney movies as well as their post war stuff too.

#38 Posted by ImmortalSaiyan (4701 posts) -

Take a guess. It's Alice in Wonderland.

#39 Posted by NegativeCero (3039 posts) -

Lion King for me just because I was a kid when it came out and it was one of my first Disney films.

#40 Posted by Soapy86 (2618 posts) -

The Lion King.

Beauty and The Beast is a close runner up.

#41 Edited by TheHT (11769 posts) -

Comes down to Aladdin and The Lion King. I was always the Aladdin one in our family.

Fox and the Hound was the one Disney movie we had that we avoided because it was so damn sad. Always liked Mulan, but we never got it on VHS.

#42 Posted by TheVeteran13 (1214 posts) -

I'm gonna give Dinosaur some love, I remember really liking that movie.

#43 Posted by GERALTITUDE (3532 posts) -

Sleeping Beauty, the last hand-drawn of the bunch if memory serves me right. Fuckin impressive shit that movie is. Also: Maleficent 4 life.

#44 Posted by Slax (962 posts) -

I lied. I put Alladin. The real answer is The Emperors New Groove. How did I forget...

#45 Posted by Tireyo (6451 posts) -

My vote goes out to The Lion King.

#46 Posted by Laiv162560asse (487 posts) -

Beauty and the Beast just hits the right spot for me in all the songs and characterisation. Very close between it and Lion King, but actually if BatB were removed from the running I would probably still vote for Alice in Wonderland above Lion King. Musically it was weak, but I loved the atmos.

#47 Edited by JadeGL (962 posts) -

Robin Hood, it just has a special place in my heart for some reason. I love it. Logically I know that something like Beauty and the Beast is technically better in almost every way (my second favorite) but I just can't do it. Robin Hood all the way!

Can't decide between Mulan or Aladdin. Love both of those movies. I picked Aladdin, as it's the one I've seen the most, but Mulan is very close behind it.

#49 Posted by Jimbo (9983 posts) -

More nostalgia for Robin Hood but... The Lion King is probably better.

#50 Posted by Turambar (6888 posts) -

Aladdin and Lion King pretty much have the best songs.
