Best Animated Movies of 2017


The Top Ten

1 Coco

From the looks of trailers and promotions for it, this could be another great and successful Pixar movie. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

This is the best movie of all time I have ever seen...!

No doubt it's number one, this is one of the best movies I've seen this year right now - Neonco31

This is the best movie ever it has an emotional story, beautiful animation, great songs a loveable and unforgettable characters ( hector was my favorite) I love this movie

2 The Lego Batman Movie

It doesn't hold a candle to the Lego movie but this was a very fun spinoff - Thepassingzone

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

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.

3 Despicable Me 3

The best one - darthvadern

This wasn't that good. The first two movies were a million times better. - Solarian

Why is this so high it's annoying - Thepassingzone

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. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

4 Cars 3

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!

Much better than the crappy lego batman. - B1ueNew

Maybe not best of the trilogy, but certainly awesomne honestly! The animation is just mind-blowing - darthvadern

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. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

5 Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie

As a guy who grew up with this ridiculous book series, this is just disappointing.

At first I thought this was going to suck, ruining my favorite book, but a movie involving underpants got good reception! - 445956

Great job but George disrespected Shopkins - penis

This was really good second best animated movie of the year so far! - darthvadern

6 My Little Pony: The Movie

It gave mlp some of its latest characters it also gave mlp my favorite song I can sia rainbow

This movie was not bad.

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

This should actually be higher this movie was very good

7 Smurfs: The Lost Village

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

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.

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.

This movie is easily the best Sony Animation movie since 2012's Hotel Transylvania 1

8 Ferdinand

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

It's alright, at least it has a decent story and some colourful animation - darthvadern

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. - 445956

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

9 The Boss Baby

It was okay at best. - Solarian

Just bad - Thepassingzone

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 - ChiefMudkip

This movies is incredible I like it and I think it is the best movie in 2017 I hope this type of funny movies may come in future

10 Sword Art Online the Movie: Ordinal Scale

How is this under the Lego Ninjago Movie HOW?

Coco is a masterpiece and this rocks

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! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

I love this anime
it's so emotional and heart touching story

The Contenders

11 Rock Dog

Get it off the list

Norm of The West is more like it.

What is this, Norm of the West? - 445956

Well, to be honest, it IS better than Norm of the North - ZootopiaFan

12 Batman vs. Two-Face

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

13 Tom and Jerry: Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory

Pfft, tell that to all the YouTube critics who tore this pointless crossover apart. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

14 The Lego Ninjago Movie

Overhated, best of the lego movies honestly - darthvadern

This movie sucked like the other lego movie. - B1ueNew

Now what I think, this looks boring - Trollsfan536

This movie is going to suck - Randomator

15 The Emoji Movie

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. - darthvadern

Thank god, this movie deserves to be lower.

Why do you love this movie so much? It's just so terrible!

I love this movie! This is my favorite movie!

16 The Croods 2

Sadly, has been moved back.

17 Blazing Samurai

I think it might have been delayed to 2018

That movie isn’t even out yet

18 Batman and Harley Quinn
19 Loving Vincent

After seeing this, this was probably was my favourite animated movie of 2017. - iliekpiez

Really? Below The Boss Baby and Emoji Movie? - darthvadern

The world's first fully painted feature film.

20 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. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

21 Hey Arnold!: The Jungle Movie
22 A Silent Voice

I think that this is just as good (if not better) than Coco - Kuro

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.

23 Thomas & Friends: Journey Beyond Sodor

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

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

24 The Star

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

This movie sucked.

Religious claptrap

25 Leap!

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


It looks 10x better than the Nut Job

26 The Son of Bigfoot
27 The Red Turtle

One of my favorite anime movies - Kuro

The most beautiful and moving film of the year - Evaneeg1

28 Paddington 2

Congrats! You've been moved to 2018. Hooray!

29 Fate/Stay Night: Heaven's Feel - I. Presage Flower

Well, I just finished watching Presage Flower and honestly, I have to say it was pretty good. However, being that it's only the first installment, we don't really get to the REALLY good parts of the Heaven's Feel route just yet. Of course, the Lancer vs True Assassin fight was definitely one of, if not, the main highlight of the first installment of the Heaven's Feel trilogy, but I felt the first 10 or so minutes of the film focused too much on getting to show Sakura's past interactions with Shirou. Other than that, I'd say the Heaven's Feel film trilogy is off to a good start! If seeing Saber Alter in her Elegant Gothic Lolita Dress from Fate/Grand Order while sporting a hot smug smirk on her face isn't any indication that things will heat up in Lost Butterfly, then I don't know what is! But... unpopular opinion, unless this was the second or third installment where things got really climactic, I personally prefer Ordinal Scale over Presage Flower. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

30 The Breadwinner

Best non mainstream animated movie this year. - SuperBananagengar

31 Daddy's Home 2

Greatest anime of all time - Kuro

pfft. - Trollsfan536

This ain’t animated, this is live action


32 My Life as a Courgette
33 Trinity Seven the Movie: Eternity Library and Alchemic Girl
34 Fairy Tail: Dragon Cry

This movie was beautiful <3

35 The Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature

It is disappointing that Jackie Chan is in this movie. - SoloPotato

While better than the original, it was incredibly bland and unoriginal - ChiefMudkip

Seriously?! First Mulan 2, then Cars 2, and now The Nut Job 2!? What's next?! The Emoji Movie 2!? UGH!

Why the hell is this here the first was terrible now a sequel - epictoonsfan1
