Best-Looking Animated Movies


The Top Ten

1 Your Name

If you haven't seen this movie, what are you doing with your life? It's an absolute masterpiece, and the stunning art only adds to it. - Atham

2 Coco

May not be the best Pixar movie, but visually the most appealing. - Not_A_Weeaboo

It has many bright colors and intricate details. - Atham

3 Spirited Away

Despite coming out in 2001, the animation in this film (and most Studio Ghibli films for that matter) holds up surprisingly well. - Atham

4 Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

Incredibly stylized and appealing to the eye. The movie looks like it came right out of a comic book. - Atham

5 The Lion King
6 Fantasia
7 The Wind Rises
8 When Marnie Was There
9 The Tale of the Princess Kaguya
10 My Little Pony: Equestria Girls

The Contenders

11 Zootopia

There is a ton of attention to detail in the movements and textures throughout this movie. - Atham

12 My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Rainbow Rocks
13 My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Friendship Games
14 My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Legend of Everfree
15 Akira
16 Mulan
17 The Hunchback of Notre Dame
18 Frozen
19 Inside Out

Colorful and vibrant, this movie's animation is a joy to watch. - Atham

20 From Up on Poppy Hill
21 Princess Mononoke
22 The Lego Movie

Most of the film is rendered in Legos. The character's movements also try to replicate those of homemade stop motion lego movies. It's creative and fun to watch. - Atham

23 Whisper of the Heart
24 Isle of Dogs
25 Bambi
26 The Adventures of Prince Achmed
27 Wreck-It Ralph
28 The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie
29 The Simpsons Movie
30 The Polar Express

It may just be me, but this movie goes a little too far into the uncanny valley in my opinion. - Atham

When I was little I thought this was live action

31 The Nightmare Before Christmas
32 My Little Pony: The Movie (2017)

I like this movie more than Equestrian Girls. The animation looks different from the T.V. show and more interesting. Also ponies should stay as ponies.

33 Foodfight!

Of course! How could I forget Foodfight! This culturally important masterpiece looks gorgeous! The animation for this film very clearly had a high budget. - Atham

34 Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha the Movie 1st
35 Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha the Movie 2nd A's
36 It's Such a Beautiful Day
37 Song of the Sea
38 Jack and the Cuckoo-Clock Heart
