Greatest Animated Movie Sequels and Prequels


The Top Ten

1 Finding Dory

Overrated, same story as the original, only different characters to focus on.

I love this movie, especially that last part! - listotaku17

Pixar's second best movie, only to Inside Out!

What? Why is this number 1? It’s not bad, I can see why people like it, but it’s not funny at all! It tries way too hard to be sympathetic it forgot the comedy! There wasn’t a single funny moment in this, every ‘comedic’ moment either left me bored or horrified. This is sadly my least favourite movie from my favourite animation studio. I’ll give it this though, it’s fun to pass time with. - PageEmperor

2 Toy Story 3

Toy Story 3 is a great movie and a great squeal but Toy Story 2 was an even better squeal then toy story 3 in the toy story franchise

I like how you describe it by how good of a squeal it is! What's your opinion on it being a sequel?! - sandycheeks

Actually this is number 1

Was good from what I remember. - PageEmperor

3 How to Train Your Dragon 2

One of the GrEaTeSt movies I've ever seen in my life! - Victoryboy

This is my favorite animated movie. - Cyri


Say what you want, but I thought this was AWFUL.

4 Toy Story 2

Lol this is the only movie on the list that I liked

A sequel as great as the original. You can't deny how sad and emotional Jessie's backstory is.

5 Kung Fu Panda 2

The villain was cool

Bull Spit it is not Boring UniqueUser I do respect your opinion but for the rest of us it is a great film.

Boring. - UniqueUser

6 Shrek 2

Not only was Shrek 2 a better sequel, but it was also the best Shrek movie! (In my opinion) - TrueWolf99

One of the worst Animated movies ever! - Victoryboy

7 Monsters University

Am I the only one who hates this movie? - MegaSoulhero

8 Despicable Me 2

I absolutely adore this movie for many reasons. The animation, the graphics, the humour, it had basically everything and it was spot on. It might not be objectively amazing, but I personally found it to be flawless. I respect your opinion if you didn’t like this, though to me this is easily one of the most underrated and outstanding animated movies. - PageEmperor
