Best Animated Movies of 2017

The Top Ten Best Animated Movies of 2017

1 Coco

Bright and looks like Pixar had fun with the animation. And with that Pixar strikes again.

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

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

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.

I find it very overrated, it was colorful and okay, but I guess I'm not really a fan of lego movies. - darthvadern

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.

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

3 Despicable Me 3

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

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!

Since they're coming out with this and Minions 2, I'm afraid that the Despicable Me franchise is becoming the Ice Age of Illumination.

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

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!

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

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

This film was fantastic. A return to form for the cars franchise

5 My Little Pony: The Movie

This movie was not bad.

This should actually be higher this movie was very good

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

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

6 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

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

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

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

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

9 The Boss Baby

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

A couple of the jokes got me a chuckle, but I mostly thought the character designs were kind of creepy and the story was stupid. It wasn't horrible but I didn't like it much - Phillip873

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. - darthvadern

Sorry but I think this movie is FARR from a masterpiece in my opinion. In fact I didn't think it was good at all - Phillip873

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

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

How is this under the Lego Ninjago Movie HOW?

Coco is a masterpiece and this rocks

Two words: OSCAR-WORTHY. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

The Contenders

11 Rock Dog

Get it off the list

What is this, Norm of the West? - 445956

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

Norm of The West is more like it.

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

Now what I think, this looks boring - Trollsfan536

This movie is going to suck - Randomator

This movie sucked like the other lego movie. - B1ueNew

Overhated, best of the lego movies honestly - darthvadern

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

The hell? Why is this even on the list? It hasn't even released yet and people aren't really looking forward to it. Unless Sony Pictures Animation can defy expectations, this is probably going to turn out to be one of the worst movies of 2017. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Again looks awful - epictoonsfan1

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

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 Hey Arnold!: The Jungle Movie
20 Loving Vincent

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

The world's first fully painted feature film.

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

21 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

22 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.

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

23 The Star

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

This movie sucked.

Religious claptrap

24 Leap!

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

It looks 10x better than the Nut Job


25 Thomas & Friends: Journey Beyond Sodor

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.

26 The Son of Bigfoot
27 Paddington 2

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

28 The Red Turtle

The most beautiful and moving film of the year - Evaneeg1

One of my favorite anime movies - Kuro

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

gay scenes - WorldPuncher47592834

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

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

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

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

Sounds as dumb as Norm of the North 2 - Randomator

36 Frozen 2

Who's the idiot that added this? No one EVER said this was coming out in 2017! - MegaSoulhero

It's been delayed to 2019. - darthvadern

Frozen 2 wasn't released in 2017... - LapisBob

Delayed. Why is this on - WorldPuncher47592834
