I wrote a slideshow ranking Disney animated films:
From “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” in 1937 to “Moana” opening this Thanksgiving weekend, Walt Disney Animation Studios carries a long history of innovative and artful animated films.
I divided Disney history into four “waves” and picked the top five films from each period (because really, comparing “Tangled” and “Saludos Amigos” doesn’t do any good for anyone). The end result is a jaunt through the studio’s entire history, adding up to 20 of the best animated films of all time.
Let’s look first at the specific periods themselves.
