Best Animated Movies of 2017

The Top Ten

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

Bright and colorful.it 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.

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

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.

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

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

Despicable Me 3 Despicable Me 3 Product Image

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.

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.

Cars 3 Cars 3 Product Image

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.

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

This is the best cars movie but please no more

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

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...

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

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!

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

Biggest surprise on the list it's really good and very funny

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

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

Ferdinand Ferdinand Product Image

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.

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.

The Boss Baby The Boss Baby Product Image

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.

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

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

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!

How is this under the Lego Ninjago Movie HOW?

Coco is a masterpiece and this rocks

Two words: OSCAR-WORTHY.

The Contenders

Rock Dog Rock Dog Product Image

Get it off the list

What is this, Norm of the West?

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

Norm of The West is more like it.

Batman vs. Two-Face Batman vs. Two-Face Product Image

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

Tom and Jerry: Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory Tom and Jerry: Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory Product Image

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

The Lego Ninjago Movie The Lego Ninjago Movie Product Image

Now what I think, this looks boring

This movie is going to suck

This movie sucked like the other lego movie.

Overhated, best of the lego movies honestly

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.

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.

Again looks awful

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

The Croods 2

Sadly, has been moved back.

Blazing Samurai

I think it might have been delayed to 2018

That movie isn’t even out yet

Batman and Harley Quinn Batman and Harley Quinn Product Image
Hey Arnold!: The Jungle Movie Hey Arnold!: The Jungle Movie Product Image
Loving Vincent Loving Vincent Product Image

The world's first fully painted feature film.

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

Really? Below The Boss Baby and Emoji Movie?

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.

A Silent Voice A Silent Voice Product Image

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

The Star The Star Product Image

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

This movie sucked.

Religious claptrap

Leap! Leap! Product Image

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

It looks 10x better than the Nut Job

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

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