The Top Ten

1 The Lion King

Disneys finest masterpiece Good characters, good music, good story and a good morality tale, the lion king is still good!

A unique flick. Will always be loved and praised forever.

The Lion King is one of the greatest movies of all time. I cry at least 5 time throughout the movie. They could have ended after the circle of life scene and I would have been happy. That's how amazing it is.

BEST movie ever

2 Toy Story

This movie is probably my favorite movie of all time! The story is so great about Buzz and Woody's friendship. Their is also some adult humor too this movie is great for all ages and deserves to be number one!

As Pixar were making this. Some people were unsure about it. After all, computer animated were only used for short films back during the 80s and early 90s. Some even said that people can't watch over a hour of computer animation. Everyone's minds changed soon after the first set of audiences watched it. Soon after, everyone started watching it and almost every other animated movie were made on the computer. The movie itself is also amazing. This is movie changed how people looked on computer animated and a classic that everyone should watch.

Probably my favorite movie when I was growing up -

A Nostalgic Masterpiece! Great for all ages.

3 Wall-E

I love all the top three...I. E loin king toy story 1 3.. But wall E is definitely THE BEST it is simple yet is effective in its story telling... There is the cutest robo or machine ever manufactured... And its love for earth... How can anyone resist WALL E... It doent get boring even you watch it multiple times.. Simply superb

The best animated film ever. I can't possibly feel you how amazing this is, for I wish not to provoke anybody.P.S. Has anyone ever heard someone say that if it's disney it definitely good, because I once heard someone say it. They deserve a nice roundhouse kick to the face. They are probably one of those " if it's disney I like it just because it's disney and I love anything and everything disney" people. And in case you wanna know my favorite animated show is SpongeBob. How can you not like Patrick. And the disney stereotype would probably hate SpongeBob.

This film is beautiful and thought provoking. The first half has very little dialogue and it is still amazing. This is the first movie I knew I had to only watch in high definition.

Great flick

4 Finding Nemo

Best movie ever should definitely be in the top ten. Its so sad and heart-breaking at some points and then absolutely beautiful in some parts. The beginning when marlin rescues nemo's egg and goes its okay daddy's here is so perfect. Hopefully finding dory will be just as good, have so much expectation for it

I heard that when Ellen went to Sydney
She tried to find wallaby way which was the street from memo and she got annoyed that she found out that it didn't exist

They go to sydney Australia, what is not awesome about that

Finding Nemo should be 2. Not 5. - PeeledBanana

5 Shrek

I watched this recently and I had forgotten how much I love it! - JasperB

A Great fun for every ages - MatrixGuy

Shrek is love, Shrek is life and it's #1

6 The Simpsons Movie

This is ONE of the movies that never gets olD... Complete humour from the beginning till end + an amazing story... After seeing the climax when homer saves springfield in a bike some people with sick mind might end it in one word 'STUPID', but others like me will end it in two words 'CLASSIC HOMER'

The big screen adaptation of probably the greatest animated sitcom there has ever been. Thank you Matt Groening!

Springfield's finest in their first big screen outing. Spiderpig / Harry Plopper is such a scene stealer.

Excellent movie, though sadly it was the last great thing to even come out of the Simpsons. - SailorSedna

7 Up

A squirrel walked up to a tree and said "i forgot to store acorns for winter and now I am dead". It is funny because the squirrel gets dead.

I loved this movie so much; after it came out, I watched it every day and said the best parts over and over. Most new movies are terrible, but this is more than just a new movie...it's a classic.

It tells a more touching story in the first few minutes than the other movies do in all their time combined..truly exceptional stuff

Russel is really funny - Pixtol

8 Spirited Away

Come on guys, Spirited Away is masterpiece when talking about animated movies. Pixar Studios already told they've learned a lot from the Spirited Away 's director Myazaki and have lots of influence on him. It's so sad this film didn't actually had a good marketing, its got a perfect plot, beautiful messages and can take you to an amazing fantasy ride. I just couldn't believe it's so low in this list.

This movie is truly one of the best movies I've ever seen in my entire life. It so different from normal animated movies and has such a strange plot, yet still amazes me of the originality and ideas put into this. Its truly amazing, the animation, the story, the music, I can't even describe how well made it is. When I was 10 years old I saw it for the first time and was amazed. Now I'm 20 years old and I still love this movie.

The absolute most charming, heart warming movie ever made. I go as far as declaring it as one of the greatest movies ever made.

This movie is amazing

9 Inside Out

Pixar's great comeback! Inside out is really really a great movie! Watch it now and vote it! Because It's really GREAT!

It's a beautiful movie. Haven't seen it yet? HURRY UP AND WATCH IT! - AnonymousChick

Why is this so low? It was awesome. Should be number one. Bing Bong was my favorite part.

The movie super awesome best tank is the story screenplay the ever best story

10 Toy Story 3

Toy Story 3 is the greatest testament to Animation, Story, Connection and subconscious understanding The world has ever witnessed. It pulls out all the stops and challenges your inner child, and some of the most powerful scenes I have ever witnessed in my years of film viewing, it speaks from the heart and tells you a story that will not only Entertain, Excite, Humour, Frighten and Possess you, but will make you remember how much your non talking childhood friends meant to you. Also everything else that requires a film to be a masterpiece is right there. - Drewstar

Toy Story 3 is by far the best animated movie ever made. We understand that lion king is a classic but older movies are meant to be bettered. And this is the best that Hollywood has produced

I don't even get it... Haven't you seen spirited away... It is the best animated movie I have ever seen... If you haven't seen it I really hope that you do

Why Toy Story 3? Because it gave a new meaning to my life. And Buzz & Jessie's paso doble is one of the most amazing things I've seen in my life.

I didn't really like this film (don't kill me). But nope, movie 4 is coming out and to be honest, I thinks it's gonna suck, badly

The Newcomers

? The Tale of Princess Kaguya
? The Care Bears Movie

Sure this was made to sell toys and such and may have spots that look like commercialism but other franchises like Marvel, Harry Potter, Star Wars, Disney and Power Rangers, all franchises I like, are commercialized too.

This may not be the best movie ever, but I love it and it is the best of the Care Bears movies right here. If you look past the sweetness you'll see it's got a great story with great messages teaching how important it is to care for others and that no matter what there will always be someone in the world who will care for you. It does have its flaws such as fluctuating animation quality with lots of errors and some characters are underdeveloped and don't speak like Loyal Heart Dog and Proud Heart Cat but there are plenty of other characters who, while not deep and complex, all get their own time to shine and have their own personalities, such as Tenderheart, Wish, Friend, Bedtime, and Brave Heart to name a few.

The three kids, Jason, Kim and Nicholas ...more - SailorSedna

The Contenders

11 How to Train Your Dragon

So one of the best movies ever made... IS NUMBER 50?! How is this not in the top ten? This is by far the best animated movie ever made, and Toothless is my favorite fictional character ever.

This movie is awesome, most people are fooled by the name. This is my favorite animated movie of all time and I love toothless. It also has its own video game and T.V. series. Great visuals, action, and comedy. Also heart warming

My #2 animated movie it is perfect, Great visuals, great comdy, thrilling action, heart warming and great plot and story line

Best movie ever

13 Wreck-It Ralph

Did you know there were fourteen Sonic the Hedgehog cameos in this movie? Truth be told, I probably wouldn't have known that without the power of YouTube... But it's the best movie ever for gamers!

The best animated movie of 2012. It is fun, sad, cool, and epic. You can see most of video game characters in there. My favorite line is:
Vanellope: "what if they won't like me? "
Ralph: who doesn't like a little brat with dirty hair? "
It is a must see

Better than frozen, I absolutely love this film.

Ralph's back next year, that'll get y'all excited

14 Ice Age

Such a funny film. The other Ice Age films are equally funny but wouldn't have existed without this masterpiece.

The original Ice Age film. Without this, we wouldn't have had all those sequels that came after Ice Age

The Ice Age trilogy is the definition of Sub-Zero. Obviously this is the most Sub-Zero of the series so far. Ice Age rules.

Amazing film, it's really funny, amazing characters, great plot, emotional scenes, and everything - Pixtol

15 The Incredibles

Awesome movie. Should be higher. - arpanvinayak

Definitely should be in the top ten without a doubt - PenderK

The incredibles has everything a good movie needs. Action, comedy, a good plot, a crisis, emotion... I could go on for ever. - TheGrammarPolice

Best animated action movie - Pixtol

16 Aladdin

My absolute fave... It's funny, heartwarming, and has good characters:

Aladdin: the main character. Yes he's flawed but he has so many good traits. He's clever, fun, caring, brave, romantic, and insecure. Sure he can be selfish and rude but he overcomes that, shown by freeing genie. So overall, I love Aladdin.

Jasmine: she is so sassy, intelligent, kind, that it's hard to hate her. Oh and my, my what gorgeous girl... ! Jasmine is really funny and her facials are fab. I love her attitude. Does she change throughout the film... Not really... But does she need to, she awesome!

Genie: HILARIOUS! ' I love his songs his jokes his everything. He really likes Aladdin, by the end. I think they are true friends. His intro is hilarious. I love it when Aladdin outsmarts him... He's so cool.

Magic carpet: <3 he doesn't speak but he's so funny. I love when he's messing with Abu. It's really cool of disney to give him the personality/"facials". He doesn't ...more - baconyum

47!? Are you kidding me? Aladdin is my favorite disney animated movie. Aladdin has action, comedy, and romance. Not to mention it also has great characters. - Ajkloth

Not a prince but Far better than the kings! This movie has the classic songs! And animation

I love Robin Williams - GBird

17 The Lego Movie

This film was a blast to watch at the theaters, the story was a breath of fresh air, the animation is the BEST I've ever seen, and the characters unforgettable. If it's still in theaters, go see it NOW.

I went through 40 movies to find this one. It's just that good. Morgan freeman as a blind wizard! Lego batman building baby carriages, green lantern is still a loser (unless you read the comics, then you know the real reason), and will ferrel! I dreamed of this movie, it is the god of animated movies!

Okay let me get this over and done with now. I don't understand why Disney Pixar etc are deciding to place in so many sex jokes in kids films now but I can ensure you it's something special. Also I'll like to say about how funny some of the parts are especially my favorite guy benny. When he is flying through all the different worlds shouting spaceship it is just 10 10 and it's just hands down one of the best movies probably ever this is just great work but why is it 20! But still great

Cool movie and it's funny - Pixtol

18 Beauty and the Beast

Why is this movie not in the top ten! It's my favorite animated movie of all time (next to "The Lion King"). The characters are great, the story is crafted well, and the songs and score are fantastic (You're lying if you say that you have never gotten "Gaston" or "Be Our Guest" stuck in your head after you've heard them)! This movie was the first animated movie to receive an Academy Award nomination for Best Picture and for good reason. "Beauty and the Beast" is a masterpiece that was among the best films of the Disney Renaissance. It has stood the test of time, and I'm certain that people will be watching this film a century from now, unlike some of the other films that are placed higher on this list. I recommend this film to anyone who appreciates high quality storytelling and breathtaking animation.

This movie was ahead of it's time as mentioned by other reviewers. It was a highly acclaimed movie that had a musical score comparable to Broadway and had technical jumps far ahead that set the bar high with films to follow. What made this special? They weren't using cg as a crutch like todays animation to substitute hard hand drawn work. They would merely use it to give 3d perspective as seen during the chandelier scene in the ballroom dance. Today's movies have gone lazy and laced over the top with effects. Hard work went into this timeless masterpiece and it shows.

This movie isn't even in the top 40? For shame top tens, for shame...

This is my fave Disney movie along with Frozen and Moana, probably because I look like Belle and she's my fave Disney princess, and I think Gaston is awesome! Me and two of my BFFS are even the Gaston gang!

19 Toy Story 2

I like all 3 movies equally. They are all in my top 10 - Sabbath

Why so low on the list. - anonymous1

Not the best, but I had lots of fun watching it.

Amazing movie - Pixtol

20 The Nightmare Before Christmas

This movie was absolutely wonderful. It was very dark like a Tim Burton movie but also very cheerful and emotional at the same time. Jack's struggle to fill a longing for happiness and change made the movie very emotional and Sally's struggle to be normal and see the outside world. The songs in the movie either were very funny and cheerful such as the Oogie Boogie Song and This is Halloween. Then, there's the case about songs such as Jack's Lament and Sally's Song. I thought the emotion of a Tim Burton film combined with the comical Disney moments made this movie excellent. The stopmotion was excellent and I loved the animation. The music also fit the film perfectly.

This film is downright amazing! It has to be my #2 favorite Tim Burton film next to Batman. Apart from its beautiful Oscar-nominated visual effects, the music is the best part. And to those Disney metalheads, there's actually a Disney cover album called "Nightmare Revisited" which has the songs from Tim Burton's beloved classic covered by metal/modern rock's biggest names such as Marilyn Manson (The Beautiful People), Korn (Freak on a Leash), Rise Against (Savior), Amy Lee of Evanescense (Bring Me to Life), All-American Rejects (Move Along), and tons more, and I recommend you check it out. Apart from that, this is undeniably THE greatest stop-motion animated movie of all time. Who knew a Disney-Burton pairing would work out so well.

I love this movie so much. It's a great Halloween movie but, I also enjoy watching it around Christmas, too. You know what? I could watch it all the time. I love it that much.

Tim Burton is amazing at creating movies and I think this one is one of his best. I love the songs and the story plot is great.
