As a kid, I was a big Disney fan. I always would ask for the new Disney movie coming out, and was a different Disney princess for Halloween every year. From all the Disney movies I have seen, I’ve always wondered which were the most popular, or which ones did other people like as well? From an article by Joe Allan, on Themanual.com, here are the top 5 rated Disney movies:
This movie from 1997 was rated 74% and was 93 minutes long.
‘Hercules’ is an imaginative story about the Greek gods. This story includes Hades, Zeus, Hera, Hercules, and mentions of other gods and goddesses.
4. ‘The Lion King’
This movie from 1994 was rated an 88% and is 89 minutes long
‘The Lion King’ is a story set in an African kingdom called the Pride Lands. The story is about a young lion cub who wants to be a great king one day. Unfortunate things happen to his family, and he is forced to leave his home if he wants to survive. Soon, his past catches up to him and he is forced to make a decision for not only himself, but his family and friends.
This movie from 1998 was rated 71% and is 88 minutes long.
‘Mulan’ is a unique story about a young girl who enlists in the army as her father. Women are not allowed to be in the army at the time, but she is determined to keep her father safe by enlisting herself. She tries her best to keep this large secret safe, but ultimately fails. She tries to earn back the trust of her new friends and family, by showing them how strong she really is.
This movie from 1999 was rated 79% and is 88 minutes long.
‘Tarzan’ has always been one of my favorite Disney movies. Set in the Jungle of Africa, Tarzan is a man raised by gorillas after his parents were killed by a jaguar when he was a baby. The story is built around his coming of age when people come to the island. He has never seen people before, so this raises the question of how he wants his future to happen. Will he go back to England with the new people or stay with the only family he has ever known?
This movie from 1992 was rated 86% and is 90 minutes long.
‘Aladdin’ is a very interesting movie set in a city called Agrabah. The story is about a thief who always seems to be running from the police and, ultimately, jail. He meets the princess one day in the city, and quickly falls for her. He is then tricked into a horrible situation that lands him with a genie on his side. He promises to set the genie free for his 3rd wish, but as time goes on, Aladdin becomes more needy for whatever the genie can give him. Will Aladdin stay loyal to the genie or think of himself first?
