Best Stop Motion Animated Movies

The Top Ten

1 Coraline Coraline Product Image

First watched this at the age of 8 in 2009, immediately became my favourite movie, and has continued to be my favourite movie for almost 10 years. And I think it will be forever. It's absolutely mesmerising. I've surely seen it at least 20 times and still notice some hidden detail I hadn't seen before every time. And that soundtrack! wow. Watching Coraline makes me want to work as an animator. So glad this is at #1 :))

This is easily my favorite. The story is well driven, the characters are well acted out, and not too scary, but scary enough for such a story.

This movie has a captivating plot and was orchestrated perfectly with the plot and everything it shows how much time was put into it as it is the longest stop motion feature film

Simply a horrific masterpiece. Powerful story telling mixed with strangely captivating animation is a great horror and animated movie, without cgi or blood.

2 The Nightmare Before Christmas The Nightmare Before Christmas Product Image

From the mind of Tim Burton, this is clearly the best. With bueatiful animation, catchy musical numbers, and good voice acting.

This should be #1

The Contenders

11 Mary and Max Mary and Max Product Image

My favorite movie on this list is ParaNorman, but Mary and Max is a close second. The reason that I voted for this instead of ParaNorman is because I think it deserves some love. Let's get Mary and Max to the top five.

12 Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer Product Image

Great holiday classic. It’s a shame SJWs say it’s “problematic.” (It’s not.)

13 Isle of Dogs Isle of Dogs Product Image
14 9 9 Product Image

Just because it's a Tim Burton movie doesn't mean it's stop motion

This isn't stop motion.

15 Shaun the Sheep Movie Shaun the Sheep Movie Product Image
16 The Lego Movie The Lego Movie Product Image

Ok, 1. This wasnt even stopmotion. They animated it so it would LOOK like stopmotion. 2. This movie is awesome.

This want even stop motion

Sorry to tell you, but this isn’t stop motion

Lego is awesome the toys are awesome the movie is awesome the theme park is awesome people can make tons of cash making Lego and I'm like 24 years old and still play with Lego

17 James and the Giant Peach James and the Giant Peach Product Image
18 The Boxtrolls The Boxtrolls Product Image

Some people didn't like this movie that much, but I really enjoyed it. While the story is a little lacking, it's characters, humor, animation and score are all incredible and it makes for a great film. I don't think it's the best, but it should definitely be higher.

19 Early Man Early Man Product Image

Eh... it was alright

20 A Town Called Panic A Town Called Panic Product Image

Well, this movie was made in Belgium and I think this is very underrated. Well, it's kinda hard to see one character with numbers of movements/poses in one frame.

Very good put subtitles on if you speak english
