I loved Child of Glass!
I don't think I can pick just one! Bedknobs and Broomsticks (obviously!), Child of Glass, Pollyanna, Babes in Toyland, Swiss Family Robinson, Summer Magic, The Sword in the Stone, Robin Hood, Pete's Dragon, Newsies, Hercules, and The Emperor's New Groove I thought were all great movies but they don't seem as popular today.
Underrated: Emperor's New Groove- so so funny
Under represented in the parks: Robin Hood. I hoped with Brave (awful) there would be some kind of mash up with Robin Hood vs. Merida archery merchandise.
Nine lives of thomasina
Lion King 1.5 considering it never made it to the big screen.
Tangled, but only compared to Frozen. I think Tangled was a better movie than Frozen, and that it is underated compared to it.
Meet the Robinsons hands down!!!
I really think Tarzan is underrated. I loved the music and the way the "cameras" flew through the trees following Tarzan.
I completely agree with this! Tangled was a far better movie IMHO. I thought Rapunzel had a lot more personality than Anna or Elsa as well.
We just watched Treasure Planet for the first time on a whim (anything to get away from watching frozen again) Oh man - it was AMAZING! Entertaining, engaging, and visually compelling. My husband usually hates cartoon movies, but he even said that they should rerelease it to big screens and find a new audience. Our whole family thoroughly enjoyed it - especially my son, whose name is Ben. He has a new favorite robot!
I was going to say the same thing. Tangled was great and has been completely forgotten in wake of Frozen.
Honestly I feel like Bambi is underrated. Its one of the best animated cinematic adventures ever but always kinda seems overlooked when people think of Disney, especially when they think of that age of Disney animation and Snow White and Pinocchio come up in conversation.
I also agree- The Hunchback!
(And I too have seen Child of Glass- LOVED it as a kid!)
Honorable Mention: WALL-E & The Adventures of Ichabod & Mr. Toad (may not qualify though since it's an animated musical feature).
Emperor's New Groove - hilarious!
I also agree with Hercules. I loved the music in that one!
I'm torn on qualifying Tarzan. For over ten years, it was WDAS's third-highest grossing animated film (right behind Lion King and Aladdin) and was only recently knocked out by Tangled and Wreck-it Ralph. If it made that much money...
On the other hand, if you look at the numbers, it appears the lion's share of that money was made in foreign markets, so it's quite possible that it's underrated here in the States.
I was talking with a CM at the AoA gift shop last year, and Treasure Planet came up, and she said, "They should really re-release that in 3D, because that would be perfect." I was in total agreement.
I think everything has been forgotten in the wake of Frozen....
Yes music is fantastic- as is the animation/scenery (very reminiscent of the "Pastoral Symphony" scene in Fantasia IMHO)...
Wall-E, hands down. My favorite Disney movie.
