Best Animated Movies of 2017

The Top Ten
1 Coco Coco Product Image

Probably one of the best movies I've seen in recent times. Mexican culture is super interesting and the whole point of this movie is incredibly interesting as well. Set during the day of the dead and has a lot of themes centered around that. Deep story and the characters all had some sort of personality and development.

Main protagonist is Miguel Rivera, a guy who dreams of becoming a musician but his family forbids music strongly. On the day of the dead he ends up in the day of the dead when testing playing on the guitar of Ernesto de la Cruz, his deceased biggest idol, where he must find him. The story and animation is just stunning. This is probably Pixar's most colourful movie to date. Everything just looks so beautiful in this movie.

Spoiler alert here, even though I'm not a fan of the twist villain cliché, I think Ernesto de la Cruz was a very well-executed villain and one of the best in that category. He's truly evil and has scary and psychopathic motivations and ...more

Coco is a very great movie and to be honest, it's really hard to pick compared to other animated cartoon movies but this is just... amazing. It's very emotional and it really taught my parents (well, my mom ateast since we were the only ones who watched it from our family) such great value of family. My mom sometimes don't get any of my favorite cartoon movies and shows 'cause she's Indonesian and yeah I'm too But, this one really... taught her something. And it taught me somethin, too. When I was walking out from the cinema, I saw this kid hugging her mom because of the lesson of the movie. I'm glad that this is in the top list of best movies, because... the directors did a great job on this. Instead of having a very emotional, hearthwarming movie, it also brought me entertainment. Miguel is sort of like me... I used to have (well, not really 'used' ) a huge passion of writing, doodling and just all those creative stuff. My mom would hide my phone away from stopping me to post ...more

Yay Coco! Better than Frozen Adventure indeed! Why'd they make a frozen thing before it? That's not my problem, because they stopped showing Olaf Adventure when I went!

Embracing the dead and caring once about family than our goals. This movie points out important lessons that we've missed out so many times in life.

2 The Lego Batman Movie The Lego Batman Movie Product Image

Thought it was hilarious and underrated. True fans of DC universe and Batman will get every reference. My little brother loved it and saw it twice while it was in theaters. I Was never a big fan of Lego movies until this and Ninjago came out, can't wait to watch another new lego movie in 2018! Hope it wins instead of Coco, which I don't have much hope for since Finding Dory was kinda a flop and Cars 3 was okay.

This one made me laugh and had some hilarious jokes and it was great even in its seroious moments. Oh I'd like to say after this I would pick Cars3, a million times better than the disappointment that was Cars2. Disney and Pixar brought their A game this time.

This movie is one of my favorites... I think it's very funny,cute,and good for kids. In my opinion this is one of the best movies for a family movie night.

Hilarious parody with more Michael Jackson refrences than you'd think 10/10!

3 Despicable Me 3 Despicable Me 3 Product Image

I loved it when it first came out. Nowadays when I look back, I see that my love was exaggerated due to how good the good parts were. In reality, that was only a third of the film. The rest is boring and uninspired sub-plots with no value. I still like it but I have grown to see a lot of its flaws.

Sooo good! This franchise isn't meant to be appreciated by cold adult critics, its for the kids. The franchise sure does succeed in that domain with Despicable Me 3 being the third biggest hit of the year (behind Beauty and the Beast and Furious 8 in the Worldwide Box Office, so far) It is funny and lightweight and always brings a smile to my face. Continue On Illumination with Minions 2!

Illumination Entertainment should start focusing on making more original movies, but I guess since I like Despicable Me and Despicable Me 2, Despicable Me 3 might be a good watch as well.

I love this movie! It's just so amusing like the first 2 films of the franchise. Way better than a lot of the films that came out this year, like disappointment 3...er I mean cars 3.

4 Cars 3 Cars 3 Product Image

Many were left disappointed by Cars 2, and based on what I've seen from trailers, I think this could redeem the Cars franchise and be the best in the trilogy yet.

I really enjoyed this film, it's not as good as the first Cars movie but it's miles better than Cars 2 (I don't consider Cars 2 to be a bad film at all it's just that it's the weakest out of the 3 movies) and even with it's flaws, Cars 3 is still a very enjoyable family film the kids will enjoy it the most. Animation is breathtaking by the way. Especially the mud in the Demolition Derby, looked so real!

Now that I think about it, I liked this more than the original Cars!

I definitely agree. This movie was great and I loved it.

5 My Little Pony: The Movie My Little Pony: The Movie Product Image

The first time I watched this was on a plane and I watched it 5 times! I think I became obsessed with this movie cause I didn't stop . So now on a plane I always look for this movie- PrincessAWSOME

Gonna be honest, I'd rather watch this than the Emoji Movie.

I can't get these songs put of my head...

This movie was not bad.

6 Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie Product Image

At first I thought this was going to suck, ruining my favorite book, but a movie involving underpants got good reception!

This was really fun. Not amazing but not bad either.

Ah, my childhood, made into a movie. This is DreamWork's only good film of 2017.

This was good

7 Smurfs: The Lost Village Smurfs: The Lost Village Product Image

Thought it was underrated. Should had been higher then the My Little Pony Movie. Thought it was better than Despicable Me 3. Choke on that.

I watched this movie in the theaters. I was preparing to hate it, but now I found it a pretty good movie, but it wasn't as good as the cartoon.

Much better than the first two live action movies. It's actually watchable and is by far the best of the 3.

It was alright. Nothing awesome or anything but it's a fun little movie if you don't take it that seriously. I liked the cartoony animation and while the jokes are slapstick boring and the movie is extremly cliché it's alright.

8 Ferdinand Ferdinand Product Image

The book was my childhood and the author came from the small town of Garrett Park, Maryland, where I am from. And John Cena is in it, so I am starting to have some mixed feelings.

I watched it and I thought I was their. The best film this year. I want more and now

It has John Cena in it.

I used to love this film since I was 7 but I still like it right now

9 The Boss Baby The Boss Baby Product Image

I must say, It was better than I thought it would be, it was almost a masterpiece, sure it has some fart jokes but if you just ignore it, you'll find the story amazing.

I liked it I don't know why people don't... Maybe reading too much into the movies "message" just enjoy it for the funny lighthearted movie it is

I'm pretty sure Dreamworks saved their creativity and budget for Captain Underpants, but even then, I still liked it and my family liked it

Best animated movie

10 Sword Art Online the Movie: Ordinal Scale Sword Art Online the Movie: Ordinal Scale Product Image

Dang, from what I've seen so far, the movie has been pretty successful and has received quite a lot of positive reviews! I may not be able to have time to watch it in theaters again, but when it comes out on DVD, I'm definitely renting it!

My personal favourite.

The Contenders
11 Batman vs. Two-Face Batman vs. Two-Face Product Image

A awesome Batman animated film starring Adam West and William Shatner.

12 Rock Dog Rock Dog Product Image
13 The Lego Ninjago Movie The Lego Ninjago Movie Product Image

This was a good movie. It may not be as well put-together or as funny as the two Lego movies before it, but the humor was certainly cute. It was a little more serious, but that's true to Ninjago's style. I honestly loved how both Lloyd and Garmadon were portrayed. And most importantly, the core message was very sweet.

This was actually funny.

14 Tom and Jerry: Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory Tom and Jerry: Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory Product Image
15 The Emoji Movie The Emoji Movie Product Image

Unpopular opinion but this movie ain't all that bad. It definitely was a lot better than I expected it to be. The idea of this movie is generally original and it has some nice references here and there. There is the stuff I do hate like how it tries to be hip and cool for kids a lot and the jokes were generally pretty terrible, this movie has some fun moments and a decent storyline. It's not a great movie but if you just watch the movie for fun it's alright honestly.

Go watch the emoji on July 28th. Patrick Stewart is poop!

Stop the hate! This movie is better than any movie!

I love this movie! This is my favorite movie!

16 Batman and Harley Quinn Batman and Harley Quinn Product Image
17 Hey Arnold!: The Jungle Movie Hey Arnold!: The Jungle Movie Product Image

19 Mary and the Witch's Flower

Has yet to have an international release, but I'll have my eyes on the lookout for this one online.

20 A Silent Voice

This really is one of a heck good movie. It is really worth my time watching this tear jerking movie. Better ready your tissues if you are going to watch this movie.

21 The Star The Star Product Image

Love this movie, don't care what anyone else says (unless they say the movie is good)

22 Leap! Leap! Product Image

This movie has a positive message and shows that you should always follow your dreams!

23 Thomas & Friends: Journey Beyond Sodor Thomas & Friends: Journey Beyond Sodor Product Image

This film is a 2017 animated movie, so I added it on to the list.

Wow, wasn't expecting this to be on the list. but I love it so I'm voting it.
