Best Animated Movies of 2016


The Top Ten

1 Zootopia

Humorous and definitely both kids and adults would enjoy. Zootopia also teaches life lessons about being yourself, believing in your dreams, and discrimination, with amazing and funny characters that everyone can relate to, AND it has a catchy song! There is no questioning why this film was the favorite

Zootopia is A BEATIFUL MASTERPIECE. Fist off the animation this is THE BEST ANIMATION DISNEY HAS EVER DONE I love it how the city Zootopia is made it makes the city great for big animals and small animals. Second the characters Judy Hopps want to police officer despite being a bunny and the rest being bigger animals like wolves, tigers and elephants and I was rooting for her during the entire movie. Nick Wilde is con-artist fox at first Him and Judy are enemies but when they have to work together to solve a missing case they become better friends we soon learn about nicks backstory about when He was a kid He wanted to be in a group when though He was going to be the only fox but the other animals didn't take it too well a lot of people can relate to that.Third the music Try Everything has become one of my favourite Disney songs of all time I just love the nice beat to it and last but not least the message this message is just BEATIFUL. Don't give up what you are doing instead you ...more

Totally better than The Lego Movie

THE BEST.My 2nd most favourites movie of 2016 after 1. CAPTAIN AMERICA: Civil war.

2 Kubo and the Two Strings

Again its good - VideoGamefan5

Easily the best animated film of 2016. The immense care that went into not only crafting it, but creating such a poignant story in a CHILDRENS' film is to be truly respected.

So overrated

Zootopia is decent, as well as overrated.

3 Moana Moana

This should be number one! Zootopia was really cute and fun, but it just didn't click with me as a Disney Classic. This, however, did! The beautiful and fun songs, the stunning animation, the clever writing, and fun characters make this a modern masterpiece.

Are you kidding me norm of the north is 8 but this is 15 is this a joke?

I love this movie bring it higher! I like it better than zootopia.

I forgot the lesson of this movie cause I'm typing this on 2017 But, I agree with the person who said this should be the toppest. It was emotional and AGRHH I love emotional movies they give me this... LOVE! But anyways yeah Moana is a great 2016 movie!

4 Finding Dory
5 The Secret Life of Pets

I liked this movie it wasn't the best thing ever but at least it wasn't as overrated as Zootopia was which I'm not surprised seeing that Zootopia is number 1 on this list - christangrant

Take it off the list! Come at me secret life of pets fanboys!

6 Kung Fu Panda 3
7 Batman: The Killing Joke

I love this movie. Put this on number 1 please. - asantalo

8 The Angry Birds Movie

This movie hasn't appeared on the big screen yet, but it looks like the best game movie of all time! Did Angry Birds deserve that? Yes, but I could think of 50 other games that deserve a good movie and are better than Angry Birds - Martinglez

Awesome movie it isn't as good as zootopia but its still awesome - VideoGamefan5

The legendary game exits the little screen for the big screen!

This was the bomb! It is a great start for Rovio animation.
This movie makes the franchise look good

This movie in my opinion is overrated. While it's not as bad other trash like Sausage Party or Norm Of The North, it's still in my books a terrible cash grab movie.

The trailers are awesome I mean really awesome.

This should a lot higher this was super good movie

10 Sausage Party

The most daring animovie ever made. You have to admit that lt's hilarious. It also proves once & for all that animation can be enjoyed by adults & adolescents alike. There are actually people deluded enough to think that animation is only for kids. Sausage Party is a slap to these idiots faces.

Why is this on the top ten? it's a disgusting movie about food porn!

The Contenders

11 Storks

People should have known that in a movie about delivering babies, there would be some innuendos.

However, I love this movie, and whenever the wolves were on screen, my whole family just lost it. - Absolite

12 The Little Prince

Although I totally agree with the little prince not being on this list, I think it's safe to say that this movie said so many things about adults and children today. I think children, wonderful as they are, deserve to be children! I feel like the little prince opened our eyes, saying that people are just too serious nowadays, that we don't have time to just be the kid we are on the inside. Really a tearjerker.

This is a touching movie. You should check it out.

13 Ratchet and Clank

Loved this movie they should make another one and they will I hope.


14 Trolls

It Actually Ended Up Really Good

This is a movie about happiness, how far some go to get it, and how far we went to get it back

I love trolls

16 Only Yesterday
17 Tamayura Part 4
18 Justice League vs. Teen Titans
19 My Little Pony: Equestria Girls - Legend of the Everfree
20 Batman: Bad Blood

IT'S AWESOME! Batman + Robin + Nightwing + Batwoman = A.W.E.S.O.M.E.

21 Norm of the North

This shouldn't be on this list at all...

This should be number 4! - darthvadern

Screw this movie - VideoGamefan5

22 Thomas & Friends: The Great Race

I added this one because it's animated and it was released in 2016, so in my opinion, it counts.

I heard it was good

23 Ice Age: Collision Course

This series has had its time, but it has to be put away now. Please. - Mcgillacuddy - Mariomaster63

24 The Boy and the Beast
25 The Good Dinosaur

This was made in 2015

That movie made me cry so many times. No matter how many times I watch it I start crying.

26 The Wild Life
27 April and the Extraordinary World
28 DC Superhero Girls: Hero of the Year
29 Phantom Boy
30 The BFG
31 Miss Hokusai

33 My Life as a Courgette
34 Snow Queen 3: Fire and Ice
