Top 10 Best Non Disney Animated Movie Sequels

Disney isn't the only one that can make a decent animated sequel several other animated movies not by the Disney company like Dream works have managed to make its fair share of really good sequels.

The Top Ten

1 How to Train Your Dragon 2 How to Train Your Dragon 2 Product Image

How to Train Your Dragon 2 unlike a lot of animated sequels that just rehash the same plot from the first or last movie actually expands on the story as Hiccup and his tribe find themselves against Drago a dragon hunter who looks to take over the world using a dragon army and Hiccup reunites with his long lost mother who was presumed dead is a dragon rescuer which explains why Hiccup was able to train dragons. - egnomac

This film is exciting. This film is also better than that overrated horrible disappointment Home (2015) because Home is obsessive. Unlike Home, HTTYD 2 is fun. - Badabooo2

This movie unlike a lot of animated sequels is one of a few which in my opinion tops the first film. I loved the bond they showed not just between Hiccup and Toothless but also between all the other characters too. It brought tears, smiles and whoops of joy!
I've never been engaged so much in what goes on in a film as much as this.
Brilliant in all areas!

This has to be the best animated movie. I'll always love this movie, even when I'm old. Brilliant, extraordinary, awesome, AMAZING! I encourage people who hasn't watched this great movie to watch it.

2 Shrek 2 Shrek 2 Product Image

I love this film. This film is better than the third film. My sister has a big and huge obsession on the third one for some reason. Unlike the third one, the second Shrek film makes me have good childhood memories. - Badabooo2

The first Shrek movie was good but the sequel was better furthering the story of Shrek and Fiona as they travel to the kingdom of Far Far Away to meet with Fiona's parents the King and Queen of FFA and of course Fiona's dad is not too happy especially since he had promised Fairy Godmother that Fiona would marry her son Prince Charmin what follows is a hilarious journey that introduces us to a new character Puss in Boots as Shrek attempts to change himself so he and Fiona be happy as Fairy Godmother fixes it so Fiona will end up with Prince Charmin. - egnomac

Although the third one will always be my favourite, this was almost about as good as that one, the colorful animation is amazing and the story was great - darthvadern

3 Kung Fu Panda 2 Kung Fu Panda 2 Product Image

Definitely the best of its trilogy. First was a classic and super fun but a little basic. Third has its amazing plot but its villain and overall story wasn't as in-depth. Two is the perfect blend of the two pros, while eliminating the flaws of the other two.

It surely got a good story, just lacking some good action to me.

This film is better than Home.

4 Pokemon the Movie: Lucario and the Mystery of Mew Pokemon the Movie: Lucario and the Mystery of Mew Product Image

No Pokemon movie gets over a 6/10 for me.Thankfully, this is a 6/10, so I'll tolerate its placement. - DapperPickle

5 Rugrats In Paris: The Movie Rugrats In Paris: The Movie Product Image

A good sequel to a very underrated movie as the Rugrats gang go to Paris with their parents to Euro Reptar Land so Tommy's dad can repair one of his inventions, a lot of the movie is more focused on Chuckie who wants a new mom which is jeopardized when Coco LaBouche attempt to marry Chuckie's dad with Angelica's help so her boss will promote her. - egnomac

6 Despicable Me 2 Despicable Me 2 Product Image

I found this movie really enjoyable and almost as good as the first one. - 23MACCAja

This is probably one of the worst in my opinion - it's unfunny, predictable, the character design is atrocious and the main plot point is about minions, and minions are not very good. - DapperPickle

A great sequel and a great movie overall and this was better than the original too (unpopular opinion, I know) - darthvadern

Kiddos here love the minions so they got very much excited when this sequel is about to show in cinemas. - tridem

7 The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water Product Image

Good movie, bad name.

8 Kung Fu Panda 3 Kung Fu Panda 3 Product Image

Not as great as two I believe, seeing as how much more could've been poured into it, but it's great!

I think this is the worst movie in the trilogy

Best One

9 Pokemon The Movie 2000 Pokemon The Movie 2000 Product Image

The first Pokemon movie was hit or miss the sequel Pokemon the movie 2000: The Power of One was a pretty good follow up as Ash is chosen by destiny to reclaim 3 glass balls to help restore balance after a greedy collector tries to capture the 3 legendary Pokemon Zapados, Moltress and Articuno in order to summon Lugia and try to capture it, and I loved seeing Misty getting jealous around Melody especially when she kisses Ash which really ticked her off then seeing the two reconcile their differences as Misty chooses to go save Ash and states that Ash is never alone because he has her
she even risked her own life to save Ash from drowning. - egnomac

10 Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted Product Image

Eh, this was pretty bad and the worst of the trilogy in my opinion - darthvadern

The Contenders

11 Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs Product Image

The Meltdown was okay Dawn of the Dinosaurs was a pretty good sequel in its own right as a mamma T-Rex kidnaps Sid who took her baby's as Manny and the others go after him while Ellie is getting ready to give birth to her and Manny's child Simon Pegg really steals the show as the very awkward and wacky guide. - egnomac

I actually really liked this one. - NightJinx

Surely there are better movies than this mediocre film. - DapperPickle

This one is my favorite - Badabooo2

12 Ice Age: Continental Drift Ice Age: Continental Drift Product Image

Please do not say that I am ruiing and trolling the lsit, because I'm not trying too, but I love this movie, it was also the inspiration to the mobile game Ice Age Adventures (which I consider to be awesomne) - darthvadern

13 Despicable Me 3 Despicable Me 3 Product Image

In my unpopular opinion this is the greatest movie sequel of all time and the second greatest animated movie of all time (Hotel Transylvania is my favourite), the villian Balthazar Bratt is such an iconic and developed character that I wanted him to win in the movie honestly, and that says a lot - darthvadern

I hated minions but I thought DM3 was decent, I liked the other 2. - BlazingParasol

14 Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa Product Image

Although the Madagascar trilogy is extremly overrated, this one takes the slice as the best one, it's somewhat entertaining, the story is very good and the ending is awesomne, however, this movie contains a horrible dance move in the beggining I'm not going to say, but that was horrible - darthvadern

15 Ice Age: The Meltdown Ice Age: The Meltdown Product Image

I thought the villians were amazing becase they were so colorful (Maelstrom in particular) - darthvadern

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

Unpopular opinion: This was better than the second one, most of the cons from the second one are either removed or fixed which is a good thing, and it's so colorful and it has become somewhat nostalgic for me. I still think the first one is the best - darthvadern

This was excellent
