Since its first full-length animated feature film, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, arrived in 1937, Walt Disney Studios has been churning out beloved classics that have ingrained themselves into popular culture. An overwhelming majority of these movies are downright excellent, gifting us with some of the most memorable songs and characters to ever grace the silver screen. Some are marginally better than others — and of course, there are a few clunkers — but overall, Disney’s batting average for family friendly hits is remarkably high.
When Disney joined forces with Pixar Animation Studios in the latter half of the 1990s, the bar was subsequently raised. New computer-generated animation techniques opened up the floodgates for some superb works, starting with 1995’s Toy Story all the way up to this year’s stellar Turning Red. Disney Animation Studios is also responsible for some popular entries into the Disney canon, such as Moana, Zootopia, and of course, Frozen.
While many of Disney’s standouts receive the due credit they deserve, there are a select few that frequently get left out. Maybe their box office performance wasn’t as successful as hoped, or perhaps they just became overshadowed by more popular films. One such movie considered by many to be underrated is 2007’s Enchanted — a live-action-animation hybrid that satirizes its own fairytale cliches while also proving their worth. Despite its critical praise, it took 15 years later to get a sequel. At long last, Disenchanted finally arrived on Disney+ on November 18. Let’s look back on Enchanted and the other underrated Disney movies of the past 25 years.
