    Wow- that ranking by Buzzfeed is absolutely horrible! Oliver and Company better than Peter Pan, Dumbo, and Fantasia?! What?! The Emperors New Groove is better than those and Snow White? I have no idea what this writer was thinking. #18 was Atlantis? Has this person actually watched any Disney movies? Although I did like Hunchback being in the Top 5 (one of the most underated films in my opinion).

    Also – I hated Maleficent. It was a ruin of a terrible purely evil character. I won’t be going to see the sequel.

      Exactly. Every Disney villain except Maleficent had a reason for being bad, be it jealousy, greed, or list for power. Maleficent had none of that. She was pure evil in Sleeping Beauty, and therefore Disney’s best villain of all time

        Maleficent had a motive. She was the most powerful witch in the kingdom, and there was a big party and everyone else got invited even those annoying fairies and she didn’t get an invitation. You’d be pissed too.

    While I did not agree with all of the rankings I’m just glad Frozen was not #1. It’s a good movie and all…but, I think they got the #1 ranking right. 🙂
