There are 53 animated feature films produced or released by Walt Disney Productions and its successor label, Walt Disney Pictures. Walt Disney Studios began work on animated short films in 1923. Then, in 1937, the studio released its first feature-length animated film with Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, and has continued to produce shorts, featurettes, and feature films to this day. Throughout the years, the studio has expanded its reach. Between collaborating with other studios to co-produce films to The Walt Disney Company distributing animated features produced by other companies, Walt Disney Studios no longer produces all their animated content under the Disney banner.

Main article: List of Walt Disney Animation Studios films

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.[1]

For advertising purposes, The Walt Disney Company began to affix numbers to each of the films in the late 1980s.(citation needed) 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."(citation needed) Many film historians and animation fans refer to them as Disney "classics" or Disney "features." The numbering system remains today, as recent press releases for such products as the 20th anniversary edition of Oliver & Company,[2] as well as the opening and closing logos and marketing materials for Tangled,[3] still refer to the film's number.[4]

Though some consider the package films to be only the six consecutive package films of the 1940s (numbers 6–11 above), the definition used here also includes both Fantasia and Fantasia 2000.

  6. 6.0 6.1 6.2 6.3 6.4 6.5 6.6 6.7 These films were also released or re-released in a Disney Digital 3-D limited cinema version.

Studio Ghibli

Main article: Studio Ghibli

In 1996, Disney signed a deal with Tokuma Shoten for distribution rights to the theatrical works of Studio Ghibli world-wide (excluding Asia except for Japan and Taiwan and excluding Grave of the Fireflies which was not published by Tokuma), including what then was the most recent film, Princess Mononoke. The deal later grew to include DVD rights and newer Ghibli movies - the English language release of Spirited Away won the 2001, 2002 Academy Award for Best Animated Feature. Studio Ghibli remains wholly independent of Disney and maintains strict creative control over the handling of the foreign language localization Disney produces.[26] All of the theatrical Ghibli back catalog originally included in the deal have since been released to DVD in North America (except Only Yesterday) and several other countries. The following films were given theatrical releases outside Japan by Disney and subsidiaries:
