Walt Disney Animation Studios has had a huge impact on animation around the world. Respected animators such as Osamu Tezuka and Hayao Miyazaki, for instance, have been occasionally referred to as the “Walt Disney of Japan”, even if their works don’t always resemble the output from Disney. Because of this influence, I have created my all-time ranking of Disney animated feature films to date and rated each film. As they are reviewed, I will place them somewhere on this list.

Please note that only films from Disney Animation Studios are included here. Other animated films which were distributed by Disney, or by one of its subsidiaries, are not included. This is my own ranking of these films, and my ratings for the films may be different than that posted by other reviewers on MySF Reviews. If the film was reviewed here by someone other than me, I’ve included their rating as well as mine.

Think I’m out of my gourd for not ranking them how you would? Since ranking is a subjective matter, please feel free to leave comments down at the bottom of the list, and you’re welcome to rank them yourself in your comments, creating your own all-time ranking of Disney animated movies. Enjoy the list! –Joe
