People Are Creating March Madness Brackets For Their Favorite Disney/Pixar Movies

Warning: This bracket forces you to make some difficult decisions.

Every year when March Madness rolls around, I feel a little left out. Everyone talks about their brackets, celebrating when their team advances, but I don’t follow basketball. The whole bracket thing, however—it seems like a lot of fun. It makes me wish I could participate, too.

But now people are making brackets for something that’s much more my speed: Disney/Pixar movies. It all started with this Tweet pitting Pixar movies against Disney movies:

Once the internet got a hold of this thing, they had a lot of opinions. The original bracket has since been retweeted more than 44,000 times, and people have created their own as well.

If you really love animated movies, choosing between them and “ranking” them can feel just plain wrong. Who’s to say what makes “The Lion King” better than “Toy Story”? And what criteria are you using anyway? And as BuzzFeed pointed out, it all becomes even more complicated when you realize that a lot of key movies are missing from both sides: “Alice in Wonderland,” “Dumbo,” “The Jungle Book,” “Bambi,” “Sleeping Beauty,” “Lady and the Tramp,” “Peter Pan” and “The Sword in the Stone” on the Disney side, and “Finding Dory,” “Monsters University” and “Cars 2” on the Pixar side.

But that didn’t stop people from taking a stab at it. Fox Sports writer Ryan Rosenblatt had “Coco” taking it all:

This guys says that “The Lion King” should clearly reign supreme:

Although this user did not agree with all the match-ups, he went with “Aladdin” as the overall champion:

And some people had to re-seed/re-make the whole thing before they could give their opinion:

People are clearly passionate about their animated movies. What do you think? Which movie would be the ultimate winner in your bracket?
