Few entertainers, companies, or individuals have captured the hearts of millions like animated Disney movies. Classic stories and characters captured on film and preserved for generations to enjoy is the essence of Disney. The opportunity for families to come together and create memories is the timeless gift a Disney animated movie provides. The cost of a movie rental is minimal, but time spent creating a memory with your family is....priceless.
The following is a list of the animated films that were either entirely produced in-house by Walt Disney Productions prior to 1986, or were produced by Walt Disney Animation Studios, formerly known as Walt Disney Feature Animation, after 1986. For advertising purposes, The Walt Disney Company began to affix numbers to each of the films in the late 1980s. Through this method, they could proclaim the film to be "Disney's nth full-length animated film". When the numbering system was introduced, the group of films included became collectively known as the "Disney Animation Canon." Many film historians and animation fans refer to them as Disney "classics" or Disney "features."
