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

Eh, my opinion: terrible - darthvadern

2 Kubo and the Two Strings

Definitely better than a certain Disney movie. The fact that that movie won the oscar over this movie makes me mad inside - darthvadern

Again its good - VideoGamefan5

Makes me sad that this movie bombed - Thepassingzone

It's good, but not the best, definitely not as good as Zootopia

3 Finding Dory

This is my favourite - darthvadern

Shut up Thepassingzone! This movie is amazing and is better than Finding Nemo! This movie is better than what you think, unlike Finding Nemo!

Eh just ok not amazing - Thepassingzone

4 Moana Moana Moana is the protagonist of Disney's 2016 animated feature film of the same name. Born on the island village of Motunui, Moana is the daughter of Chief Tui and Sina, with an inherited love for the seas and voyaging. When her island becomes endangered, Moana is chosen by the ocean to journey across the more.

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?

This movie is not like movies like Cinderella, The Little Mermaid, etc. because they contain lots of romance. Almost everyone wants a movie that still has the main character, who is a princess, and she needs to go an adventure to save her own kingdom. and Moana is an example. This really should be number one. I tell you. NUMBER ONE, I SAY!

Overrated but I enjoyed it a lot - darthvadern

5 Batman: The Killing Joke

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

This is garbage - Thepassingzone

6 Kung Fu Panda 3

Not as good as the first two but pretty fun - Thepassingzone

Best Kung Fu Panda movie! - darthvadern

7 The Secret Life of Pets

You know what? I really loved it! And whoever the person is who posted the opinionated comment on the bottom, I respect your, and everyone's opinions, I am not a fanboy, but I loved this film nonetheless. It holds a very special place in my heart. In fact, I'm just going to say this is the Special Grand Jury Prize winner of 2016! I am a Christian, just so you know. By the way, the Special Grand Jury Prize thing comes from Roger Ebert.

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

This was just mediocre at best - darthvadern

I love this movie!

8 Sausage Party

I can't get over the fact that this movie was made by underpaid animators - Thepassingzone

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!

9 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!

Very bad movie. After rewatching it I found it to be even worse - darthvadern

10 Storks

Quite an enjoyable movie - darthvadern

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

The Contenders

11 Sing

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 movie is mediocre but slightly better than the secret life of pets - Thepassingzone

Terrible, just terrible - darthvadern

12 Ratchet and Clank

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


13 Ice Age: Collision Course

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

Very overhated, not as good as the other sequels, but certainly better than the bad original, which was the only bad movie in the series - darthvadern

I hate this movie! - Mariomaster63

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

It was colourful but man it always needs to have a horrible song put at times - darthvadern

15 Inside Out

Same thing as The Good Dinosaur, this movie came out in 2015

16 Only Yesterday
17 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.

18 Justice League vs. Teen Titans
19 Batman: Bad Blood

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

20 Tamayura Part 4
21 The Guardian Brothers
22 Norm of the North

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

This should be number 4! - darthvadern

Screw this movie - VideoGamefan5

23 Open Season: Scared Silly

I LOVE Open Season! It was such a great film! I did not expect it to get three sequels! This film was easily the worst in the franchise. I thought that the third was the worst, but this is much worst. It has the same problems as the first two sequels, Boog and Elliot's voices are changed AGAIN, the jokes never made me laugh, the characters have been changed badly, and there's so many things that doesn't make any sense! It should've stopped after the first!

REALLY?! Who the fudge asked for a 4th Open Season film, the first 3 Open Season films were horrible, and now A 4TH FILM!?

24 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

25 My Little Pony: Equestria Girls - Legend of the Everfree
26 The Boy and the Beast
27 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.

29 April and the Extraordinary World
