Disney movies have been a huge hit for decades with a cast of some of the most well-known faces in Hollywood. The company has an array of other merchandise to sell including television series, theme parks, video games, and movie tickets. A film does not mean the best because it makes more money than Mickey Mouse. So, what are the best and most popular Disney movies of all time?
Experts of both GamesRadar+ and Total Film give you the following list. The highest-grossing films of the year include Disney classics, original movies, and a few horror films. Some films were on this list last year, others were this year. Newer titles are added this year.
Most Popular Disney Movies
The Lion King
“The Lion King” is a great movie like “The Hunchback of Notre Dame.” The film is a live-action version of the animated film. Its story was the first film produced by Disney’s animation studio. This was led by John Musker.
The Shakespearean tragedy of the film signifies growing up, perception, and parenthood. It is the musical talents of Hans Zimmer and Elton John that made the film popular.
This film tells the story of a lion cub named Timon and of the lion cubs, the main characters of the film. The film was a huge hit when it was first released. It is now considered a classic movie.
It may be worth noting that the film was not as famous as the others on this list of the most popular Disney movies. After all, it came out two months after the movie that was originally released. It is the perfect movie to watch alone.
Beauty and the Beast
“Beauty and the Beast” is expected to make a big splash at the box office. The film is a remake of the successful animated film. It was also directed by Guy De Launey. Among its casts include Ewan McGregor, Emma Watson, and Dan Stevens. Luke Evans and Lea Seydoux are also part of the movie. Expect the usual high level of special effects, music, and animation used in any of Disney’s classic films.
The Secret Life of Pets
The third film on the top ten list is “The Secret Life of Pets.” This film is another animated blockbuster and stars both Austin Powers and Meg Ryan. The film includes an all-new voice cast, which includes Scarlett Johansson and Samuel L. Jackson. Besides, there are newcomers to the film such as Justin Long and Jason Sudeikis.
The Nightmare Before Christmas
One of the most loved movies of all-time is “The Nightmare Before Christmas,” which tells the story of a boy named Jack Skellington (now a much older man). The boy finds himself in a graveyard with a magical Christmas Tree. In the film, he tries to stop Santa from destroying Christmas by unleashing the Nightmare Before Christmas curse on Christmas Eve. The Nightmare Before Christmas is a classic film that will live up to its name. It will be enjoyed by children and adults of all ages.
Another movie that was a huge hit was “Finding Nemo,” which is based on the beloved cartoon. It tells the tale of a clownfish, Dory, who lives under the sea and finds herself lost on the bottom of the ocean. Nemo tries to find a way to get back to land but ends up finding a huge treasure map on the bottom of the ocean. This leads him to a boat that takes him back to land.
With all the Disney films being so amazing, it makes sense that watching these films with family members can make it even more enjoyable. If you have kids or other people in your life, then you will want to see as many of the most popular Disney movies as possible.
