Learning By Looking: All Disney Movies In Chronological Order Of When They Took Place

September 25, 2014


This is a chart of all Disney movies in the chronological order of the time period they're set in. I learned a lot by looking at it. I'm kidding, I learned almost nothing. Same goes for high school. I'm pretty sure I learned way more from listening to Wu-Tang.

Thanks to Jessie, who at least taught me chronological order doesn't mean what I thought it did. I dunno, I thought it had something to do with chromosomes or something. Maybe I should have paid more attention in high school.

    Atlantis couldn't have happened in 700bc considering they had cars and submarines.

    I don't know how you can figure out The Lion king? Cause there is no outside world contact. I assume that's why they used the year it was released.

  • Drew Rochon

    I call BS on Fox and the Hound being "from" 1981. Both cars in the movie were Model T-ish and it had a coal-powered steam locomotive at the end. The list is ruined and worthless.

    phahahahah @ TP.

  • Matty Spinny

    anyone else feel like there's ones missing?

  • Ariella Diamond

    *cough* Princess and the Frog *cough*
    There might be other ones too, but that kind of stood out to me.

  • It's the one dated 1926 - you know, the one with the picture of the frog.

    This chart sucks.

  • asdfadfs

    huh, i don't know a few of these

    Now I can get a taste of that depressing feeling you get when you watch a black and white film and realise all the actors in it are now dead during cartoons too.

  • yodiddlydoo

    Dark ages were in the 10th and 11th century meaning this time line is incorrect in its juxtaposition of the black cauldron behind Aladdin.

  • disqus_k2QxOV9H7Z

    Snow white is from 1500? I always thought it was something like middle ages and not something from the great navigations.

  • Xankar

    What movie is the one where that kid is typing on the K laptop?

  • FancySeraph

    Big Hero 6, hasn't been released yet.

  • Ralfone

    What are the last two?

    There's a scene in Aladdin where genie calls Aladdin's clothes "So 3rd
    Century." However we know that the Genie was trapped in the lamp for
    10,000 years, meaning that there's no way he could've known what the 3rd
    century was like.

    This means that "Aladdin" actually takes place in the FUTURE, in at
    least 10,300 A.D. The movie is set in a post apocalyptic wasteland, one
    where only some Arabic culture has survived, and the things called
    "Magic," are actually just some of the technological marvels left behind
    by the previous civilization. These include flying carpets, and
    genetically engineered parrots which can comprehend human speech instead
    of just mimicking it...

    How else could the Genie do impressions of "ancient, long dead"
    celebrities like Groucho Marx, and Jack Nicholson, etc? Unless of course the Genie uses time travel visit us in the future...

  • Fercho

    I've heard something like that before regarding the Past/Post-Apocalyptic Aladdin situation and the time travel stuff, still nothing confirmed or rejected so far. Very interesting, anyways.

    It's like Star Wars and Lord of the Rings controversy: Star Wars takes place "a long time ago" but looks pretty futuristic for us... totally the opposite of the Lord of the Rings, which takes place "during the 3rd Age" (in the future) but looks totally outdated and old-fashioned.

    Just saying.

  • Grevans

    I think this is a very important statement in this internet squabble. It shows that dates as we state them have no meaning. So what if all of civilization as we knew it fell, and magic and monsters came as a result of nuclear war? Same with Star Wars, Treasure Planet, or what have you. Time is cool like that.

  • DapperNathaniel

    Well he does visit Disney Land and come back with merch in the second movie, so obviously he can travel through time even if your "hypothesis" is correct. Otherwise, he couldn't have gotten the merchandise in a post apocalyptic world.

    Or, y'know, he's a cartoon character meant to be funny.

  • asdfadfs

    disney could have survived the end times too
