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

Hands down the best animated movie of the year. - LarkwingFlight

Totally better than The Lego Movie

A masterpiece, best movie of 2016 along with dr strange

2 Kubo and the Two Strings V 2 Comments
3 Finding Dory
4 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.

Wow, so I just found out that Moana resembling her voice actor, Auli'i Cravalho, is just a coincidence!
This movie was awesome! Nice plot twist at the end. Gorgeous animation. Good music (I was stuck on Moana's theme song for awhile). And it was cool seeing Polynesian culture mythology. Moana may be my new favorite Disney princess! - eventer51314

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

6 Kung Fu Panda 3
7 Batman: The Killing Joke

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

8 Sing

The trailers are awesome I mean really awesome.

9 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.

10 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

Uhhh, for one thing, it's not out yet, and for another... IS ANYONE LOOKING FORWARD TO THIS? I've seen SO MANY PREVIEWS for this movie, and I ALREADY HATE IT! I am never ever EVER going to see this terrible, unfunny, failure of a "movie." - LarkwingFlight

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

Lol, Newcomers - VideoGamefan5

The Contenders

11 Sausage Party

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

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.

12 Ratchet and Clank V 1 Comment
13 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

14 Justice League vs. Teen Titans
15 Trolls

It Actually Ended Up Really Good

Oh yeah it did! Should be #1! Why is that sausage party crap ahead of this? Best movie ever! I know not many people will agree, but it's my favorite. Who decideted to put sausage party ahead of this is a ingnorent moron, that's the worst adult animated movie ever-trollsfan536
