List RulesVote up your favorite Disney science fiction movies.

It’s time to determine the best Walt Disney sci-fi movies. Space and far away galaxies are a great backdrop for epic stories and Disney has made quite a few science fiction movies. These are often action-packed and comedic westerns. A lot of these movies are classics such as Flight of the Navigator, My Favorite Martian, and Tron. But are they the top science fiction movies that Disney has to offer? You’ll also find famous actors like Jennifer Connolley and Timothy Dalton in The Rocketeer. These are also great movies for younger audiences to watch as an introduction to the sci-fi genre. This list also includes the most recent Star Wars films produced by Disney.

Which of these Disney science fiction films do you love? Vote up all your favorites and vote down the movies that you didn’t like. Check back for new Disney science fiction films as they are released and added to this list.
