Disney Sunday: Search For The Worst Not-Disney Movies

For my first Disney Sunday in a long while, I won't be focusing on any Disney movie, per say, as much as I will be on movies that try to be like Disney but fail. No, I'm not talking about Illumination Entertainment or Blue Sky Studios. I'm talking about "mockbusters."

I know that back in the day of VHS, before the internet was commonplace, it would have been easy for someone to mistake a fake movie for the real deal. But now? It's quite easy to determine that an obviously fake movie is fake.
