Best Animated Movies of 2014


The Top Ten

1 Big Hero 6

I not a fan of animated movies anymore but I watched this movie with my family, and I was so surprised by how much I liked this one. Big Hero 6 is not only better than the Lego movie and my opinion (even though, I liked the Lego movie), but the best Disney film I have seen since The Incredibles

This movie is great! It's a lovely movie and is quite sad yet funny and entertaining.

This movie was better than Rio 2! - AnnaOfArendelle332

This movie is one of my favorites! Baymax is such an adorable, funny character, and Fall Out Boy's hit song "Immortals" is amazing!

2 The LEGO Movie

If so many people didn't live, eat and breathe Legos this movie would have BOMBED! But no, people who never let Mommy sell or give away their precious Lego collections or even let her put them in storage had to go and "prove" their loyalty to the manufactures of these foot-injuring wastes of plastic.

Nope. Sorry, but this film is the best.

Nope. Sorry, this film has the stupidest and most annoying song ever, a cliche plot, annoying characters, and far too many random stupid jokes.

I love the film for its creative writing

3 How to Train Your Dragon 2

Although there were no Pixar movies released this year, there were 3 movies that were released this year that are of "Pixar" quality. As much as I adored The Lego Movie and Big Hero 6, How to Train Your Dragon 2 was the animated masterpiece of 2014.

On a related note, the Academy sucks for not nominating the Lego Movie for Best Animated Feature.

Big Hero 6 and The Lego Movie had better voice acting, visuals and better story than this. How to train your dragon 2 has one of the worst movie villains in recent memory

It was okay but not the best. I prefer the first one, but this just seemed to redo everything from the original. It ruined everything I liked about the first one. - AnnaOfArendelle332

I love this movie it's the toy story 3 of 2014

5 The Book of Life

Really great movie! Awesome soundtrack of popular songs and AMAZING original songs. The cast was perfect and the visuals were absolutely outstanding. I love the message that this movie gave. I just saw it for the first time yesterday and I've re-watched it twice because of how good it is!

My Spanish teacher showed this movie to me and my class the other day after our midterm since it was almost Halloween and Dia de los Muertos. And I gotta say, I really enjoyed this movie! To think that the people who were behind the negatively panned Free Birds made this one-of-a-kind masterpiece! Each and every song they made covers of for the soundtrack was splendid, the animation is outstanding and I loved each of the character designs; my favorites being Xibalba and La Muerte, and the characters were all so interesting and fun to watch! This is definitely going onto any remix I make related to a best movies list! I love this movie so much, I'm practically obsessed with it now! What an awesome film. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

My ass, how the crap job been better than the book of life?

6 Rio 2

It was okay but why is it higher than big hero 6 and how to train your dragon 2?!

Lol, I saw this with my friends! I felt sorry for Nigel - ScourgetheHedgehog

I like Rio 2 but not as much as How to train your dragon 2.

7 My Little Pony: Rainbow Rocks

I loved this film. It wasn't as good as the first film, but I still loved it. The best part was the Snips and Snails rap scene. That was awesome. The Lego Movie sucked. It was so stupid. Why do so many people love it?

It's hard to take someone who likes my little pony seriously. This movie sucked.

I LOVE this movie! It deserves to be on top. Like the songs, they don't just sing in random places, the characters plan it!

I hate hate hate hate hate hate hate this movie

I loved this movie. It was great except for one thing... The Dazzlings! They were horrible and stupid and ugly. But I loved the movie. ❤️

8 Song of the Sea

This was snubbed at the Academy Awards. Beautiful animation, a great story, solid characters, and a very creative premise. Damn you, Big Hero 6, and your overrated marketability. - Phenenas

This should be WAYYY higher on the list. Song of The Sea is a rare hand-drawn gem made by an Irish studio. If you love Studio Ghibli, this is the PERFECT movie for you.

I'm not kidding, go watch it, its way better then Frozen.

You should watch this! This is amazing! I loved it so much!

Saoirse's the reason I love Song Of The Sea.

9 Penguins of Madagascar: Operation Special Delivery

It is third best movie ever even better than godfather so

10 The Tale of Princess Kaguya

A gorgeously animated film based on a Japanese folk tale, "The Tale of the Bamboo Cutter". Plenty of heart and warmth, with a strong message.

Imma watch this tonight (It's 13.12.15)
I got this movie along with From Up on Poppy Hill and I've seen FUOPH, only a small part of it, though.

The Contenders

11 Frozen

Great movie, but it didn't come out in 2014, it came out the year before.

Yeah, so overrated and dumb that people forget that this was a 2013 movie, not 2014.

Its overrated status doesn't change the fact that it actually came out in 2013, not 2014, therefore should not be on this list.

I loved the movie no problem at all it was all very good.

14 Legends of Oz: Dorothy's Return

It's sad that opinion-dissing people will thumb down comments such as "Big Hero 6 is a great movie (and why)/Now this I agree, Big Hero 6 is the best animated movie of 2014" in favor of Legends of Oz: Dorothy's Return, which I hate. WHY THE GOOD REVIEWS?! THE ANIMATION SEEMS DIRECT-TO-VIDEO QUALITY AND THIS IS A BIG DISGRACE TO THE WIZARD OF OZ IN GENERAL!
