The Best Disney Animated Sequels Ever Made (And You Can Stream All of ‘Em!)

     November 21, 2019


On November 22, 2019, we all move into the unknown. Disney will release Frozen 2, a risky creative move no matter which way you slice the iceberg. It’s the ubiquitous studio’s first ever theatrically released musical sequel, it continues the story to a modern classic that finished its arc perfectly, it has to conjure up songs that somehow need to compete with the banger-ness of “Let it Go,” and it’s facing the societal hostility against Coco opener Olaf’s Frozen Adventure (which I, dear reader, will always love). That’s a lot of pressure to live up to! And it got me thinking: Have there been any successful Disney sequels?

As it turns out: Yeah! While many of Disney’s most iconic titles did gain some direct-to-video monstrosities that are more Disney- than Disney+ (nailed it!), the Mouse House did manage some high-quality revisits along the way. Now, for your viewing pleasure (all of these are currently available on Disney+, except for Ralph Breaks the Internet, which is currently on Netflix and comes to Disney+ December 11, 2020), enjoy some of the best Disney sequels ever made.

Note: I’ve stuck with “Disney in-house” content only, which means no Star Wars, Marvel, or Pixar films (because, let’s face it, that would be unfair).
