Ranked: The Films of Walt Disney Animation Studios

In preparation for Disney's newest animated feature, Big Hero 6, I'm going through all 54 of the official canon films from Walt Disney Animation Studios. Many of these, I haven't seen in well over a decade. Some of them – namely, many of the package films of the 1940s and the period between Lilo & Stitch and The Princess and the Frog in the 2000s – mark the first time I've ever seen the films. So with that in mind, I'm rating the films as I watch them, and I'll also rank them in this list in a similar fashion.

(Added 11/2/2014) With all 54 films now seen, expect adjustments to the list between now and the official release of Big Hero 6 on Friday, November 7.
