Top Ten Best Movies from Sony Pictures Animation

The following list compiles the best movies produced by the Sony Pictures Animation branch of Sony Pictures Entertainment.

The Top Ten

1 Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs Product Image

Screw Spiderman! This is the best and only good movie I've seen from them that they have released.

I barely remember toilet humor on this movie and your teen angst melodrama of a movie got nothing on a movie about a kid who actually CARES about his father and wants to bond with him instead of an ungrateful kid who pushes away his father like he's nothing. - Pinkarray

Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs is possibly the best Sony Pictures Animation movie to ever be produced. Sure it doesn't stay that much true to the source material book adaptation. But the movie makes it up for its fun and enjoyable execution that delivers creative writing with an inventive script, really funny comedy, clever gags and great plucky characters. On top of that, it also offers one of the best Pete Oswald's unique and cartoony art style of Animation that works very well in CGI, with fluent movement and fast-paced slapstick; it fits the silly and goofy premise of the movie. I loved this movie!

One Word: Jell-O

This is one of the only few good movies made by Sony. This is a Masterpiece.

2 Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

Let me tell you a story as I write this in 2018. A year ago, I found myself at the movie theater, ready to purchase a ticket for Pixar's Coco. But while I was doing that, I saw an elder black woman purchasing some tickets for her and her grandsons to go see Sony's The Star. In my mind, I was flabbergasted that Sony Pictures Animation would be getting any money from them that holiday season when they deserved to see a much better movie with Coco rather than a movie by the same animation studio who made the reviled summer disaster that was The Emoji Movie.

Zoom right to 2018 and I'm at that same movie theater. Only this time, I wasn't giving my money to Disney or Pixar. This time, I gave my money to Sony. And let me tell you, for every second of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse that I saw, every penny that went into the ticket I bought to go see it was totally worth it. Into the Spider-Verse isn't just quite arguably the best Spider-Man film to come out in recent years. It was ...more

Even though Sony pictures animation sucks this is one of the best animated films ever made

I honestly liked Cloudy a lot better. It's one of my personal favorites but that may be nostalgia. This movie shows how bad Sony Animation is. - Pinkarray


my second favorite movie, right next to avengers endgame. (that comparison just shows how good this movie is. it's on the same level as avengers endgame)

This deserves to be number 1 not that cartoony garbage that is Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs

This movie is overrated. Cloudy is underrated piece of my childhood. - Pinkarray

3 Surf's Up Surf's Up Product Image

One Of The Best Animated Movies By Sony

This movie was my childhood I legitimately used to watch it 7 times a day

STOP IT! I'LL GIVE A POSITIVE REVIEW TO SURF'S UP! AAH! I'LL SAY SOMETHING NICE ABOUT OPEN SEASON! JUST PLEASE! JUST STOP SHOUTING! PLEASE! OW! *tormented, elongated noice* AH! WHAT DID I DO TO THE *whatever Electricragon505 said loudly*?! Well, okay, yeah. Technically, yeah, there is that and... OH, GOD! PLEASE! NO! NO! COME ON, PLEASE! *another agonized word* - ElectricDragon505 (at the very end of the overrated yet fun vidoe called "Cartoon Palooza Review-Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2") who literally told the truth when he gave Surf's Up an 8/10 (Seal of Approval)

My favorite by a long shot

4 Arthur Christmas Arthur Christmas Product Image

I love this movie. Great premise, amazing cast (and Mr Santa but whatevs), and, I wouldn't say I'm a huge fan of the character designs but at least it's not Flint Lockwood.

I haven't seen this movie, but I'm sure it is good.

It's awesome, EpicJake! If you hate Justin Bieber, please overlook that flaw. Aardman is the reason why Sony Pictures Animation has a slight amount of good movies, along with the original Sony Pictures Animation movies.

I love this movie

5 Hotel Transylvania Hotel Transylvania Product Image

Strong cast, hard-hitting gags, and great animation. Probably would've looked better as hand-drawn

It's got great animation and lovable characters.

I really liked it

Directed by Genndy Tartakovsky.

6 The Pirates! Band of Misfits The Pirates! Band of Misfits Product Image

It is one of my favorite movies.

They made this movie? I thought the people who made shaun the sheep did...


7 Open Season Open Season Product Image

It reminds me Native Americans, mountains, Australia, you name it... - The Ultimate Daredevil, describing mainly the animation of Open Season favorably

This was terrible, the jokes in particular

One of the only good Sony movies

Childhood and Nostalgic

8 Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2 Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2 Product Image

Pretty bad film and Flint cried and Steve's even more of a dick.

It isn't my favorite, but I giggled a few times honestly.



9 The Angry Birds Movie The Angry Birds Movie Product Image

This is not made by Sony Pictures Animation. Sure, it's made by Sony Pictures, but Sony Pictures Animation has no involvement in this film.

This movie was pretty bad

Greatest video game adaptation of all time. Hands down.

Make this number one please

10 Monster House Monster House Product Image


This movie also isn't made by Sony Pictures Animation.

I like this movie fine

The Contenders

11 Hotel Transylvania 2

It was decent I guess, at least it wasn't bad

This film was ok, but nowhere near as good as the original.

This should be in number 2

I Watched This

12 Sausage Party Sausage Party Product Image

It's great. But there are some scenes (+18).

I really liked it

Funny gags,solid story,memorable characters,you name it.


13 The Smurfs The Smurfs Product Image

I like Smurfette because Katy Perry is playing her

Not as bad as the sequel but pretty weird


14 Goosebumps Goosebumps Product Image

I love jack black and this is a really fun movie

15 Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation Product Image

Fun cast, hard-hitting jokes, and ok premise. Very similar to first movie but enjoyable nonetheless

This was pretty good. Personally liked this one.

16 The Emoji Movie

Sony is the best. Until they stole Spider-Man. Emoji Movie is still the best though.

I love this movie! This is my favorite movie! My favorite characters are Gene and Jailbreak, they are so cute!

I hate this movie with a passion

Who put this movie on the list

17 Smurfs: The Lost Village

Beautiful. Huge upgrade from the originals and, along with Captain Underpants, is one of the more underrated movies of 2017. Strong cast, decent jokes, and perfect animation

It is way more faithful (to its original source material) than the live-action The Smurfs duology.

I want to see this! -trollsfan536


18 Peter Rabbit Peter Rabbit Product Image
19 The Smurfs 2 The Smurfs 2 Product Image

Screw this movie. I wish Smurfette were gooshed for being whiny. Crying like babies is not what good girls do.

Worse than the first.

20 Open Season 3 Open Season 3 Product Image

This is easily the worst in the franchise.

Actuality scared silly is the worst movie in the franchise not the 3rd movie and besides scared silly all of the other films in the franchise are good.

21 Surf's Up 2: Wavemania Surf's Up 2: Wavemania Product Image
22 Open Season 2 Open Season 2 Product Image
23 Open Season: Scared Silly Open Season: Scared Silly Product Image
24 The Star

Creative and engaging animated rendition of the ageless story of Christ's birth. WELL DONE.

25 The Angry Birds Movie 2 The Angry Birds Movie 2 Product Image

I thank it's better than they origanl
