The amount of Disney movies that Square Enix can choose from before the release date of Kingdom Hearts 3 is pretty ridiculous. This game has the potential to house hundreds of characters, and tens of worlds, all unique from one another. But there are some Disney movies that are considered to be pretty awful.
Obviously, one person's taste when it comes to Disney movies differs from another. But there are some that are just clearly worse than others. We're wondering whether these adventures deserve to feature in Kingdom Hearts 3. The following are considered to be the worst Disney movies ever made - do you agree? Do they deserve characters and worlds in KH3?
Kingdom Hearts 3: Do the Worst Disney Movies & Characters Deserve Their Own Worlds?
Additionally, do you have any other movies that you think deserve to be on the list? Let us know where you stand in the comments below, we'd love to hear from you!
Home on the Range
Well, it's not exactly Animal Farm, that's for sure. Disney's Home on the Range is without a doubt, the worst thing the company has ever animated. It has terrible jokes, some of the worst excuses for storytelling, and it's generally just a very boring film. It'd be hard to justify the presence of any of these animals in Kingdom Hearts 3, let alone their own world. But maybe Square Enix's powers can make them appealing? Nah, probably not.
After Dreamworks and Pixar made the move to digital animation and succeeded in making some pretty great movies (Antz and Toy Story respectively), Disney decided to follow suit with their own. The result? Chicken Little.
Disney was in a strange rut in the early 2000s, and this particular movie wasn't exactly helping them get out of it. While it has some funny moments, Chicken Little feels like a trial run. Later on Disney would masterfully create some beautiful CGI animated movies (Tangled, Wreck-It Ralph, Big Hero 6 and Frozen) but unfortunately this one is lacking in their magic.
The technical achievements of Dinosaur were quite remarkable for its time. But once we look past the visual effects, there's not much else to respect when it comes to this fairly bland film. Yet again, this was made during Disney's rough transition period, and it really does show. While not a completely bad film, I doubt many of us have a desire to re-watch it. No Dinosaur world in Kingdom Hearts 3, please!
Nope. Disney still hadn't returned to form. What was happening during these years? Bolt tells the tale of John Travolta trying to win back his career. No...wait. OH! John Travolta played a dog trying to win back his owner! My mistake.
This film is nothing to celebrate, and nothing to hate - it's simply 'meh.' Many of us were wondering what was happening within the offices of Disney with films like this. The film was boring, featured no depth to its characters, and simply felt like an easy film to make due to its banal narrative.
The Black Cauldron
You'll find The Black Cauldron close to the bottom on a number of 'worst Disney films' lists. However, I recall enjoying this one. When you're younger, you don't really see quality the way you do when you grow up. Generally, we all start liking better movies as we get older - unless you're M. Night Shyamalan.
However, The Black Cauldron has actually acquired a cult following over the years, as its insanely dark nature was something that captivated fans. Personally, I wouldn't mind seeing some Black Cauldron in Kingdom Hearts 3, but am I alone?
