Study reveals the five best and worst Disney movies of all time

A study has analysed more than 190 Disney movies to rank the most and least successful films ever made by the industry giant. 

British toy company PlayLikeMum took each film's Metacritic score and box office takings - adjusted for inflation - in order to create a score out of 100. 

According to the research, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs takes the number one spot as the most successful Disney film of all time. Released in 1937, it was Disney's first animated feature, with a box office taking equivalent to USD $982,090,000. 

Snow White also received a score of 95 percent on MetaCritic, earning it the 'universal acclaim' badge. 

The top five most successful Disney movies based on the study are: 

1. Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

2. Fantasia

3. 101 Dalmatians (1961 version)

4. The Lion King (1994 version)

5. Pinocchio

At the bottom of the list is the 1997 live-action movie Mr. Magoo, with a MetaCritic rating of just 18 percent.

The film stars Leslie Nielsen, and has an adjusted box office total of just USD $41,235,000

The top five least successful Disney movies based on the study are: 

1. Mr. Magoo

2. Old Dogs
