Hey everyone! It’s Princess Q! You might not know this but, like my book collection, I have a whole shelf for all of my movies! Although there are many movie companies that I enjoy, there is one, in particular, that never ceases to entertain me. What is that, you ask? Disney! ✨
Because of my love for Disney movies, I thought that it would be super fun to share my Top 10 Favorite Animated Disney Movies. If you are a fellow Disney fan, then let me know which movies you enjoy the most in the comments!
So, let’s get started! ✨
1o. Toy Story 2 (1999)
This is the sequel from the classic Disney movie Toy Story (1995). In it, Woody gets kidnapped, or toynapped, by a greedy toy collector. As a result, it is up to Buzz, Slinky, Rex, and the rest of the toy gang to bring him back home. However, conflict occurs when he meets some new toys.
I love the how this movie really keeps you laughing. In some scenes, it is very heartfelt, and it never ceases to make me smile. The toys are so committed to their owner Andy. Plus, it’s really cool to see toys come to life…literally!
9. Onward (2020)
On this whimsical adventure, elf brothers Barley and Ian Lightfoot go on a journey to bring their deceased dad back to life after they are gifted with a magical staff that he left for them. They have to face many emotional and physical obstacles. However, when their caring mother figures out that the two ran from home, she makes it a mission to bring them back.
I think what makes this movie so unique is that it really evolves around brotherhood. Considering the amount of Disney movies that I’ve seen, I feel like the relationship between brothers has been one of the most overlooked. This is also one of the few Pixar movies that has ever made me cry. And, believe me, that is not very easy to do.
8. The Princess and the Frog (2009)
In the lively town of New Orleans, an aspired cook, Tiana, goes on an emotional rollercoaster when a kiss with a frog in need turns her into something that is, well…unexpected. Now a frog, as well, Tiana makes it her goal to turn human again, and get the dream restaurant that she has always wanted.
This movie is filled with so much adventure and really amazing songs. I deeply admire the lesson in this movie, as well. It’s taught me that while hard work is important, sometimes it’s good to relax and have some fun. Princess Tiana is definitely one of my favorite Disney princesses because of her hardworking and humble nature. So, if you are looking for an entertaining movie with awesome music and comical characters, this is the way to go!
7. Moana (2016)
In this ocean-based adventure, 16-year old Moana is the chiefs daughter of a land that is in great danger. So, she sets out on a journey to save her people. Along the way, she meets a powerful, and cocky, demigod, Maui. With some help, she completes the quest that is long overdue and makes her family proud. Not only that, but she also figures out who she truly is, in the process.
This movie is so powerful. One minute, a tense adventure scene can create suspense. However, the next thing you know, you are bursting in tears from an emotional moment. It’s definitely a great watch, and I’d recommend it to anyone who loves a strong female lead and lots of action!
6. Ratatouille (2007)
In Paris, a rat, Remy, dreams of becoming a chef. When he suddenly gets separated from his family, he is faced with the opportunity of a lifetime when he meets an undermined garbage boy, Linguini. The two eventually team up to create a dish that changes Gusteau’s, a popular French restaurant’s, legacy forever!
To be honest, the fact that the main character is a rat that can cook makes the movie so intriguing. It really shows that no matter what age or species, anyone can be an amazing cook! Not only that, but this movie makes me laugh with it’s super unique and funny characters. If you love to cook-or eat-food, then this is a great watch for you and your family!
5. Raya and the Last Dragon (2021)
This is a movie that I watched on Disney+, the Disney streaming channel. 19-year-old Raya gets caught in a sticky situation when an evil essence, known as the Drun, begins to take over her home. It is up to her, the Last Dragon, and some other unexpected friends, to save her home and bring back Kumandra, which her father had always wanted.
This film is extremely family-oriented, action-packed, and overall, really enjoyable for those who love a film that can keep you laughing. If you love young and brave characters, as well as many magical moments, then I definitely recommend Raya and the Last Dragon.
4. Mulan (1998)
Talk about a strong female lead! Mulan is about a Chinese woman, Mulan, who takes her father’s place in a war. She disguises herself as a man to fufil honor for her family and her country.
I love movies that show how strong females can truly be. I also admire the bravery and selfishness of Mulan. Not to mention the comedy provided mainly by her dragon sidekick, Mushu. Mulan includes so many unexpected turns and action filled scenes that can really keep you on your toes!
3. Lilo and Stitch (2002)
An evil alien, named Stitch, escapes his home, where he was meant to be exterminated. He ends up on the Hawaiian Islands, where he meets a lonely little girl, Lilo, and her struggling older sister and guardian, Nani. Meanwhile, other aliens, Jumba and Pleakly, follow suit and come to earth to finish him once and for all.
I love how family, or ‘ohana, is stressed so much in this movie. It taught me that anyone can be considered family. They don’t have to look a certain way or be blood related. Overall, it is very comical, heartfelt, and includes some very relatable characters. It’s definitely an amazing Disney classic.
2. Luca (2021)
Are you a fan of the Disney movie “The Little Mermaid?” If you are, I wouldn’t be surprised if you also really like the new movie “Luca.” In this cool adventure, sea monsters 12-year-old Luca and his friend, 14-year-old Alberto, go to the “humantown”, also known as the Italian Rivera, in order to get what is, in their minds, the best invention that humans have ever made: the Vespa. They also make friends with a human girl, Giulia, on their adventure.
Overall, this movie highlights the strength of true friendships. Like Ariel, Luca is extremely curious, and wants to see what it is like to be a human, and attend a human school. It is so family oriented, and I really enjoy Luca, Alberto, and Giulia’s dynamic.
1. Finding Nemo (2003)
This story is about the relationship between a father and a son. When a clownfish, Marlin, looses his son, Nemo, him and a fish with short-term memory loss, Dory, journey across the ocean to find him. Meanwhile, Nemo ends up in a dentist office’s fish tank. He and his new pals plan an escape to reunite him with his father, once again.
This story is very emotional from the first scene forward. The lesson of taking risks and the importance of family really stands out. This is a great movie to watch with your loved ones on movie night. I definitely believe that Finding Nemo is another amazing Disney classic that any Disney fan will love!
