Disney Dimensions is a 2023 American 3D computer animated comedy drama fantasy film produced by Owen Laramore Productions, and distributed by Walt Disney Pictures. The fifth theatrical Owen Laramore film, it was directed by Arthur Allan Seidelman and Owen Laramore (the latter in his theatrical directorial debut), and features the voices of John C. Reilly, Bruce Willis, Idina Menzel, Paul Rudd, and Carlos Alazaraqui.

The film (alongside the studio's following film, Marvel Super Heroes) had been in production since the critical and commercial success of Disney In The House in 2020, making it the first Owen Laramore film to have a production budget of $100 or more. The animation team created new visuals to design dimensional-rifts for the film.

Released theatrically on August 18, 2023, the film was very well-received by critics and was a box office success, grossing $845 million against its $124 million budget.

It is the first installment in the Disney Dimensions film series. Two sequels, Disney Dimensions: Chapter 2, and Disney Dimensions: Chapter 3, were released on February 27, 2028, and May 30, 2031.

Plot

Arriving on the planet Fricassee World in the center of the Disney worlds, Cygnet Fricassee (Paul Rudd) and his robot minion H-X (Carlos Alazraqui) seek the Foundation Elements, the cornerstones of time and space itself, in a bid to merge all the worlds into one under his control. When H-X voices his doubts of Fricassee's evil plan (as anyone who tries safely harnessing the Elements will be deleted from existence), he decides he no longer needs H-X and banishes him to the planet Reptune.

When Taffyta (Tara Strong), Kevin Flynn (Alan Oppeheimer), and Kristoff (Jonathan Groff) are pulled into vortexes, each knowingly in possession of one of the Elements, Wreck-It Ralph (John C. Reilly), Sam Flynn (Bruce Willis), and Elsa (Idina Menzel) all jump in after them. Along the way, they meet and assist the various heroes of the worlds, such as Woody (Jim Hanks), while fighting numerous Disney villains, such as Shere Khan (Benedict Cumberbatch), Oogie Boogie (Ken Page), and Zurg (Andrew Stanton), and gathering all the Elements. However, when they arrive at Fricassee World, H-X is ambushed, and their friends are changed into a mutant called the Chili. Fearing that another failure could lead to the same thing happening to them, the villains bail out on Fricassee.

The trio frees their friends from the spell and destroy the piece, which causes it to explode, and they escape, nearly dying in the process. Ralph, Sam, and Elsa recruit the Incredibles, Woody, and Jack Skellington (Bill Farmer) to their cause. While Woody, Taffyta, Kevin, Kristoff, and H-X work on a plan to seal Fricassee in a rift loop, the heroes head to Fricassee World, fighting Fricassee along the way. With their allies' help they destroy his foundation, angering Fricassee, who grows into enormous size, but Woody saves the trio and sucks Fricassee into a rift loop. Using a special device that he and H-X designed, they seal him in a permanently endless prison, saving the Dimensions. Back on Reptune, H-X performs a cover of "You Wouldn't Know", ending the film.

In a mid-credits scene, an unknown person touches a remaining piece, corrupting him and turning him into a new Cygnet Fricassee.
