** ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast'' is a very dark movie, despite the breather instances of the 'Be Our Guest' number of dancing teapots and silverware. The story openly shows how much of an outcast Belle is in the town for not conforming to the norm of how the rest of the girls were and were going to throw Maurice into an isane asylum, for [[CassandraTruth talking about a monster nearby]]. The Beast's background and current position is pretty dark as well. Isolated, cursed with a horrible appearance and the only way to break the curse is to get a woman to fall in love with him, which is difficult because of his looks, but also personality. It's well-balanced with the aforementioned, lighter moments, but in essence is one of the darker movies Disney had brought out at the time.

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyTheMovie2017'' is a BigDamnMovie and considerably more dramatic and [[ActionizedSequel actionized]] than [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic the show]] it is based on, as evident from the trailers, which show the characters basically almost dying several times (even though [[SavedByCanon they won't]]) To cement this further, the movie actually received a ''PG'' rating, when most expected a ''G''. Of course, [[TastesLikeDiabetes it's]] [[SugarBowl still]] ''My Little Pony'', so it being "Darker And Edgier" may not say all that much in the long run.

The movie still has all the lighthearted fun one would expect from the show and its characters.

* ''WesternAnimation/HowToTrainYourDragon'' wasn't ''that'' dark or edgy, but it was more serious compared to most of Creator/DreamWorksAnimation's other films, and it's certainly Darker And Edgier than the book it was based on. [[WesternAnimation/HowToTrainYourDragon2 The sequel]], on the other hand, takes it further. Here, the BigBad wants to enslave all dragons, there is a battle with a gigantic ice dragon and [[spoiler: Stoick dies. To make matters worse, it was the titular dragon, whop was BrainwashedAndCrazy, that killed him]].

** ''Film/{{Dinosaur}}'', for the time, deviated from the Disney norm of warm sing-along-filled movies. It's much darker. A meteor destroys their once-lived lands. The musical tone is dark too. And the movie is about survival.
