Kicking off our list is the movie that serves as a total disgrace to a much better movie, Madagascar, which takes place in a similar location. The plot is about a young lion who is accidentally shipped into the wilds of Africa, so his father, Samson, and some of their zoo friends make it through the jungles of New York to rescue the missing cub.
With overly-detailed animation flying straight into the uncanny valley, rehashed plot, for ripping off elements of Finding Nemo, The Lion King, and Madagascar, and underdeveloped characters, it remains one of the worst movies ever made by Disney, literally, with Madagascar being one of the best movies made by DreamWorks.
Lilo & Stitch
The story follows a young girl named Lilo, who befriends an extraterrestrial creature she names "Stitch", so the two bond with the concept of "‘ohana", which means "family", which leaves Stitch to reconsider his purpose so that he can keep his family together, while Home is about a near-future Earth, where the Boov invade, with Oh, a misfit alien, and another young girl named Tip, who avoids being captured, bonding together to find Tip's mom and avoid being caught.
If you think about it, Lilo & Stitch is all about family, Hawaiian culture, and Elvis Presley, and, with lovable characters, a very realistic plot, amazing voice acting, humor, emotion, and pretty songs, it one of the greatest and best animated movies created by Disney, while Home relies on friendships, while it does try to feel familiar with great animation and voice acting.
OK, both movies are released between each other, and focus on rats, but Flushed Away was released first. Nice try attempting to compete with Pixar this time, DreamWorks! Ratatouille focuses on a rat named Remy who wants to become a chef, and tries to accomplish his goal by working with a garbage boy named Linguini. However, Flushed Away has a different plot: Roddy, a sewer rat gets flushed down the toilet, and makes friends with another rat named Rita, voiced by none other than Kate Winslet, who also plays Rose from the Oscar-winning movie, Titanic, in order to get home, while avoiding a toad and his rat minions.
Released on June 2007, Ratatouille received critical notice for its animation, characters, voice acting, Brad Bird's direction, and concept with rats want to work in the kitchen, even if they are not allowed, and box office hit, grossing $620 million, while Flushed Away, despite positive reception for its animation, humor, voice acting, and hilarious jokes, underperformed so badly it caused Dreamworks to end its partnership with Aardman, although Ratropolis is kind of a great place in England.
The Emperor's New Groove
These films from year 2000 are pretty much different,
A Bug's Life
Honestly, both movies are released the same year and have a similar premise, much like El Dorado and The Emperor's New Groove. A Bug's Life's about a inventor ant named Flik ,who accidentally screwed up the grasshoppers' food supply, getting group of big bugs, (which are really a insect circus troupe), to fight off and scare away the grasshoppers. Antz however, Z, the worker ant wants Princess Bala to love him, until General Mandible takes over the ant colony after Bala "cheated" on him.
Although Antz got positve reviews, A Bug's Life came in first place by being critcally acclaimed and earning $363.3 million at the box office. In your faces, losers!
Why do Disney always release their own movies the same year as their rival studio's own version of Disney films?, OK, take a look at Monsters, Inc.
Remember Toy Story? The world's very first CGI movie about toys are alive when humans aren't looking? Well Small Soldiers decided to break the rules of being a toy,
Obviously both trailers have this tune.
Look, they're underwater films with talking fishes, right?
Before we unveil our #1 pick, here are a few honorable mentions:
The Lion King (Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa)
The Incredibles (Megamind)
The Little Mermaid (Ariel gets attacked by sharks in Shrek 2)
Beauty and the Beast (Lumière and Cogsworth in trailer of The Boss Baby)
We all know Cars is my favorite Pixar movie, but do we have a DreamWorks answer to that? Answer is yes. That is Turbo. With an outstanding performance by Ryan Reynolds of Detective Pikachu, brilliant animation, great voice acting, and hilarious jokes,
