Best Animated Movies Not Made by Disney or Pixar


The Top Ten

1 How to Train Your Dragon

Its obvious it's the best! Awesome looking graphics, the fighting scenes are cool too. And best of all, cute toothless! (Lol)

No doubt this is the best, the sequel should be 2 on the list

Best Animated Movie EVER.

This has to be the most original and beautiful movie made yet by Dreamworks. The style is stunning and storyline is memorable- what more is there to ask of a movie?
I am counting down the days until the 3rd movie comes out in... like 2018 or 2019. It's gonna be a GOOD movie, based on how beautiful and original the previous prequels were.
