Classic Disney movies are quintessential childhood, but let's not kid ourselves — they're pretty easy to enjoy as adults as well. They're nostalgic! They're emotional! You know the lyrics to the songs!
So in the spirit of keeping our collective innermost child alive, here's a ranking of the very best classic Disney movies:
Before you keep reading, a few disclaimers:
–No Pixar movies, sequels, or half animation/half live-action movies like Mary Poppins.
–Some aspects of these movies haven't aged super well, from racist depictions of certain cultures to how young the Disney Princesses are supposed to be. A lot of those things are a product of the times, but it would be weird not to mention them in 2023.
Finally, it's very, very hard to rank these movies, kind of like ranking my favorite childhood memories, so I welcome any disagreement you might have. TBH, the top 20 could be in any order as far as I'm concerned.
