** A meta-example. The Disney Revival films ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'' and ''Disney/{{Moana}}'' are an interesting mirror of the Disney Renaissance films ''Disney/TheLionKing'' and ''Disney/{{Pocahontas}}''. Each set of films had the situation where a "talking animals" film was released and only expected to be a "filler" film that came before the next highly anticipated "princess" film. In each case, the "talking animals" film became a massively successful SleeperHit that surpassed its respective "princess" film. ''Moana'' took in a very respectful $640 million worldwide but was outdone by ''Zootopia'' which took in $1.02 billion. ''Pocahontas'' was a moderate success with $346 million and was eclipsed by ''Lion King''[='=]s $968 million.

However, ''Moana'' was still well received by critics and audiences while ''Pocahontas'' had a very mixed reception.

* FandomLifeCycle: Ranges from 2 to 5, depending on the movie. Most of the Creator/WaltDisney-era films, [[TheRenaissanceAgeOfAnimation 1990s films]] and [[TheNewTens more recent films]] get to 4-5, but the lesser-known films of the canon have their fair share of defenders.

** A meta example: The last time Disney Animation Studios had two of its films nominated for "Best Animated Feature" in the same year was back in 2002 with ''Disney/LiloAndStitch'' and ''Disney/TreasurePlanet''. In 2016, almost 15 years later, they had ''Disney/{{Moana}}'' and ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}''. Both times, Disney had a film in the running with a Polynesian protagonist and a strong Polynesian influence. Bonus points for Ron Clements who was a director for both ''Treasure Planet'' and ''Moana'' (both of which included a reference to ''Lilo & Stitch'' in the beginning of their films with their protagonists in their youth).

** The canon attempted to un-kill the art form several years later, but only got as far as ''Disney/ThePrincessAndTheFrog'' and ''Disney/WinnieThePooh'' before deciding that yes, traditional animation was dead. As a rather bitter Creator/JimCummings pointed out, [[ScrewedByTheNetwork they brought the revival's death on themselves]] by putting the new traditionally-animated movies into duels they couldn't possibly win with ''Film/{{Avatar}}'' and ''Film/HarryPotterAndTheDeathlyHallowsPart2''.

Some even think that the canon already believes that traditional animation was dead and decided to duel with those films.

* AllStarCast: Although not as blatantly advertized and abused as Creator/DreamWorksAnimation, the movies in the canon will occasionally have a staggering roster of A-list celebrities lending their vocal talent. Before 1992's ''Disney/{{Aladdin}}'' introduced Robin Williams as the Genie, Disney preferred actual voice actors, with the oldest films having actors who were theater mainstays or those who were experienced with singing and providing voice work on radio shows. After that, they started to increasingly advertise celebrity roles. Some of the more blatant examples: Mandy Moore and Zachary Levi as the leads in ''Disney/{{Tangled}}'', Music/MileyCyrus in ''Disney/{{Bolt}}'' (particularly egregious because she replaced [[Creator/ChloeMoretz a voice actor]] who had already recorded most of her lines) and perhaps Creator/MelGibson in ''Disney/{{Pocahontas}}''.

** The fifth wasn't a single film but the large amount of commercial and/or critical disappointments that lasted for years after Jeffrey Katzenberg left.

Thankfully, [[Creator/{{ABC}} Bob Iger]], [[Creator/PixarRegulars John Lasseter, and Ed Catmull]] decided to work on reviving the studios instead of killing it. Years later, ''Disney/{{Tangled}}'', ''Disney/WreckItRalph'', ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'', ''Disney/BigHero6'', and ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'' were released, showing that the studios was once again at the top of their game.
