The Disney Animated Canon (sometimes known as the Disney animated features canon) is the name given to the narrative shared by all Disney theatrical animated feature films produced by Walt Disney Animation Studios since 1937.

It's one of the four main Disney branches (of which, at 83 years old as of 2021, it is the longest running), the other three being the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Pixar, and Star Wars.

Six of the films are sequels: The Three Caballeros, The Rescuers Down Under, Fantasia 2000, Winnie the Pooh, Ralph Breaks the Internet, and Frozen II.

Strange World, and two other Untitled movies are upcoming films.

The first feature to use the Castle and Walt Disney Pictures logo was The Black Cauldron.

The last feature to use hand-drawn animation was Winnie the Pooh.

The first feature to use the "Walt Disney Animation Studios" logo was Meet the Robinsons.

For advertising purposes, the Walt Disney Company began to affix numbers to each of the films in the late 1980s. Through this method, they could proclaim the film to be "Disney's X full-length animated film". When the numbering system was introduced, the group of films included became collectively known as the "Disney Animation Canon." Many film historians and animation fans refer to them as Disney "classics" or Disney "features". The numbering system remains today, as recent press releases for such products as the 20th anniversary edition of Oliver & Company, as well as the opening and closing logos and marketing materials for Tangled, still refer to the film's number. Some foreign numbering systems of Disney animated features exclude Dinosaur and include The Wild. However, The Wild was not produced by Disney in that matter. In some countries, Winnie the Pooh is not included.
