Animated Movies With the Best Animation


The Top Ten

1 Finding Nemo

Even for Pixar standards, this movie is such eye candy with its life-like, aquatic settings. Finding Dory is the slightest bit below this movie. Even though they have the same animation (yet Finding Nemo seems slightly better), this choice could be put as the Finding Nemo franchise.

2 Finding Dory
3 How to Train Your Dragon

Finding nemo has great animation
Httyd has action scenes with even better animation whereas nemo has no action

4 Frozen

Frozen is an honorable mention on my list of "Top 10 Worst Movies With Good Animation". I respect your opinion, however.

I love watching frozen! In my opinion best Disney princess movie

5 The Lion King
6 How to Train Your Dragon 2
7 Inside Out
8 Wreck-It Ralph
9 Cars
10 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles Forever

The Contenders

11 Wall-E
12 Kubo and the Two Strings

Beautiful movie, why isn't it on the list yet? - LarkwingFlight

Even for stop motion standards, the animation is great! I love this movie as well.

13 Lilo & Stitch

What does "Sure, that's why it's worth much this ass" mean? - Kieran Glen Harris Stark aka The Ultimate Daredevil of North America, a Lilo & Stitch fan

Sure, that's why it's worth much this ass

14 Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs

Movies made by Pixar and Dreamworks have gorgeous animation. But this movie takes it to a whole new level of aspect. The special and visual effects are breathtaking and the food animation is amazing. On top of that, It offers one of the best Pete Oswald's unique and cartoony art style of Character Design and Animation that works very well in CGI, with fluent movement and fast-paced slapstick and each is given a physical appearance that compliments their personality nicely. Some are tall and lanky, others short and rotund; some have squared and large noses (like pink panther), others but a hint of a sniffer. The digital artists have taken care to design each character with love and attention to detail. It fits the silly and goofy premise of the movie. - UltimateReviewer

What do you all mean by "function"? I am sorry to say that I take AniMat's overall opinions on this movie's animation seriously. - The Ultimate Daredevil

It's not a big deal as they say, but it has good function

15 The Hunchback of Notre Dame
16 Pokemon the First Movie - Mewtwo vs. Mew

Unexpected moments with Chevy, a lot of contrast in this movie

17 Despicable Me

He drew attention enough, but everything has its end

18 The Incredibles
19 Big Hero 6

It has best animation better than frozen

20 Monsters Inc
21 Shrek
22 Monsters University
23 Sleeping Beauty
24 The Book of Life
25 Tangled
26 Toy Story
27 Babar: The Movie

I'm speaking for the whole Babar franchise (before the existence of Badou & Friends)! - The Ultimate Daredevil

28 Eight Crazy Nights

Don't get me wrong. This is a TERRIBLE movie! But the animation is surprisingly really good.

Even though it’s an awful movie, it has good animation but it doesn’t fit the film’s tone.
