After more than three weeks and literally hundreds of thousands of votes, we finally have a winner in the Disney Animated Films Showdown: With decisive wins in all six rounds of competition, 1994’s The Lion King is officially the Ultimate Disney Animated Film! Some of you saw this coming from the get-go, but The Lion King had to overcome some stiff competition to get here, from recent favorites Frozen and Moana to beloved classics like MulanAladdin, and Beauty and the Beast — that is an incredibly tough line-up. In the end, though, the record-breaking, award-winning story of Simba and his friends sang “Hakuna Matata” as it overwhelmed all of its challengers to win the tournament.

As usual, thanks to everyone who participated — these showdowns are always enhanced by a good bit of discussion and debate, and it’s clear people have strong opinions about Disney movies. We hope you had as much fun following along as we did, and we’ll see you all in the next showdown!
