Top 10 Best Animated Movie Sequels

These sequels are worth a view if you liked the previous installments of the franchises mentioned on this list.

The Top Ten

1 Toy Story 3

Now this is just what I like to see.

Absolutely incredible - PeeledBanana

1. The Toy Story trilogy is phenomenal, heartfelt and industrious. :D
2. It does not really need to exist, but it is good for an animated movie released in 2013.
3. Same as the topper of this list.
4. Toy Story 2 is top-notch, even for Pixar standards.
5. Shrek the Third's predecessors are clever fairy tale parodies. :D
6. It's no Finding Nemo, but there are reasons why this got the Seal of Approval. :D
7. Another moving trilogy! :D
8. The Kung Fu Panda movie trilogy is phenomenal, but this is the weakest in the trilogy.
9. It's more than just turning Cars into a spy movie, but not up to usual Pixar standards. :)
10. Same as top 7.

2 Toy Story 2

Average movie.

3 Despicable Me 2

Okay, yeah, it was number 1 on the 'most overrated animated movies of the 10s' list and mayybe I was just hyping it up a bit because I didn't watch an animated film for 7 months before that...wait. No, what am I thinking. This movie is the BEST animated film. Nothing will ever get close to beating this one. Heck, I don't even know how it got on that list, let alone #1, and the person who made the list needs to re-think his life. If anything, this movie is underrated. Do you ever see it on famous people's best animated film/sequels lists? I don't think I've ever met anybody in real life who thought this was amazing (apart from myself). In fact, this is the only thing ever where I will never bring myself to respect your opinion if you don't like this. This was just simply a masterpeice. Okay maybe slightly less, but it was very good. All the characters were likeable, the less decent characters were still tolerable, the humour was A+ (I was even laughing away at the beginiing) and the ...more - PageEmperor

4 Kung Fu Panda 2
5 Shrek 2
6 Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted

I love how they never gave up on this series and got rewarded for their hard work on keeping this series alive with the succes of this movie

7 How to Train Your Dragon 2

It does what a sequel should. Expand the world of the characters while making them more emphatic as the story itself deepens the themes. It also created new themes and took risk that are so rewarding. I think this is the only animated sequel that can stand toe to toe with toy story 3. I think it is as good as toy story 3.

HTTYD 2 is good enough to compete with toy story, and a million times better than most of the movies on this list

Best sequel ever - GeorgeTheNin10doGamer

Say what you want, but I thought this movie was garbage and a ripoff of Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire. Why is it even on the list?

8 Finding Dory
9 Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs
10 Monsters University

The Contenders

11 Kung Fu Panda 3

Really brings the series full circle

Not as good as Kung Fu Panda 2 but it is enjoyable for a 3rd film.

Love it

12 Shrek the Third

Actually, this is mediocre - GeorgeTheNin10doGamer

13 Ice Age: The Meltdown
14 The Incredibles 2
15 Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa
16 Cars 2

I Feel Like I Actually Like This Movie - VideoGamefan5

Hell yeah!


17 Shrek Forever After
18 The Lion King 2: Simba's Pride

It's a great movie, perhaps even better than the first.

19 Aladdin and the King of Thieves

Don't get fooled by the unbelievably tiny-budget graphics.

20 Happy Feet Two

This Was Disappointing
