Adventure Time, Marvel’s The Avengers, and other Disney movies have been the stuff of legends for decades, but some are as beloved as the original series.
Now it’s time to answer the questions on which Disney movies are the best.
As we enter the fourth year of the current era of animated movies, there’s no shortage of exciting new films to enjoy.
Whether you’re an avid fan of the beloved series or simply want to take a peek at the latest hits from other Disney properties, it’s a great time to check out the best animated films of all-time.
With the advent of the Disney Channel, the ability to binge watch animated movies is increasingly commonplace, and now that we have Disney’s beloved streaming service, we’ve also had access to the vast amount of animated films that are available on the Disney Store.
We’re now able to pick up movies like The Legend of Korra and Mulan, and the list goes on and on.
The only problem?
You have to own the DVD or Blu-ray release to get the full experience.
So how do you determine which Disney animated films are the absolute best?
If you’re a fan of a particular film, there are several factors you can look at to help you decide.
First, we have to decide what kind of movie it is.
Are you a fan or just a casual fan?
If your answer is a casual one, it might be best to just skip this section.
If your film is a Disney Classic, you’re more likely to have a hard time deciding on which version of the movie is the absolute most enjoyable.
However, if you’re looking for something a bit more classic, you’ll likely find something you can appreciate.
For instance, the animated short Mulan is an iconic Disney classic that fans of the original animated series would recognize.
If you want to go back in time and watch Mulan’s story, you’d better pick up a copy of the DVD set, since the movie’s animation was created specifically for the DVD.
Next, we want to see how long it takes to watch the film.
Does the animation seem fast or fluid?
Is the story easy to follow?
Are the effects and choreography amazing?
The answer to all of these questions should definitely factor into the decision.
If a film is very short, it should be easy to see if it’s worth watching.
If the story is a bit longer than most, it could take a little bit of time to get into the film, but you should be able to tell whether the story’s story has been lost in the transition to the new age.

Now that we’ve decided on which movie to watch, we need to make sure that we’re going to enjoy the film in a way that makes sense for you.
To help determine what we think a good experience is like for a moviegoing audience, we use several factors to determine which film to watch.
First and foremost, we take into consideration the quality of the visual effects and the acting.
A film like Mulan might have a fantastic visual effects budget, but if the characters don’t have the facial expressions that they have in the animated series, they can feel very underdeveloped.
In a perfect world, you could watch Mulantas first act alone without seeing the rest of the animated films.
If we have a problem with a particular sequence, though, we’ll be sure to tell you that the film doesn’t have an explanation for why that particular sequence is the way it is, so we’ll consider it to be a failure.
Second, we look at how long a film feels to watch and how much we enjoy each scene.
Does a sequence have a nice sense of pacing, humor, and tension?
If a scene is too long, we’re likely to get bored and start to skip the next few scenes.
If an action sequence is too fast, we may start to get antsy, and we won’t care about the characters in the next scene.
Finally, if a scene feels repetitive, we can easily see why we skipped it.
If something feels too long or too simple, we might feel uncomfortable about continuing to watch it.
Finally we look for good performances and dialogue, so that the story doesn’t feel too long.
Lastly, we consider the film itself.
Do we really want to watch a movie that doesn’t seem to give us a good understanding of what makes the characters tick?
Are we bored of the story?
Do we want something that feels like it’s over before the credits roll?
The final consideration is how much fun we have with the movie.
Are we enjoying the experience?
Are there a few moments that stand out?
Are our eyes drawn to certain characters?
The final factor is our overall enjoyment
