By Sameer Mitha | Updated on 22-Jul-2020

Animated movies today entertain both kids and adults alike. They bring with them an emotional story, interesting characters and messages for both parents and children. Not to mention the fact that they are very entertaining. If you are looking to sit back and spend a weekend enjoying animated movies, you don’t need to look beyond this list.

1.

SPIDER-MAN INTO THE SPIDER-VERSE

Spider-Man Into the Spider-Verse is not only an origins story but also the story of multiple Spider-People coming together under one roof. The story of the movie is captivating, the visuals literally look like a comic book coming to life and the music score in the movie is one that will give you goosebumps. It has to be the best Spider-Man origin story we have seen to date.

2.

INSIDE OUT

Ever wondered why you feel all the emotions you feel? What if all these emotions are little people inside you pressing buttons to make you feel the way you do. It would explain a lot, wouldn't it? Well, that's what Inside Out is all about. The emotions inside us and how they work. This tale is filled with humour, some excellent animation and dialogues that will bring a smile to your face.

3.

WALL-E

What happens when humanity leaves earth and forgets to switch off the last cleaning robot. The thought was far fetched when the movie Wall-E came out but seems quite plausible today. Wall-E is a love story between two robots and is so sweet, it will want you to cheer for every underdog out there when it comes to love stories. The movie is visually stunning, most of the conversation between the two robots is conveyed through expressions, and the music is one to touch your heart.

TOY STORY

No animated movie list can be complete without Toy Story. We haven't picked a particular instalment from the franchise as all of them bring some flavour of learning to the table. What if toys came to life and dealt with, toy problems. Being disposed or worse, replaced with new toys. These dilemmas are used as metaphors for real-life problems and have a deep message for adults and young ones that watch the movies

5.

UP

What do you do when your loved one leaves you and you are left all alone? How will you fulfil the dreams you shared with your significant other? These and a lot more questions are answered in Up. The movie is a story of an old man who leaves comfort or rather carries his home with him up in the air on an adventure that takes him to new places and builds new relationships. Getting out of your comfort zone and dealing with challenges is the theme of the movie and it is represented very beautifully.

THE INCREDIBLES

Speaking of families, what happens when superheroes settle down? What happens when their kids have superpowers and don't know how to express themselves. What happens when superheroes are banned? All these and many more questions about family life are addressed in the Incredibles. The movie is an action-packed family adventure with a lot of laughs thrown into the mix.

If you think you are a misfit in the world then Ratatouille is the movie for you. A misfit rat who wants to be a chef and a misfit boy who wants to know his father. The magic that happens when the two are together will make your mouth water. The movie is about food, love and the bond of friendship. This one can entertain adults and younglings alike.

The bond between man and beast is one that has prevailed since the beginning of time. How to train your dragon is the origin story to that.

THE LEGO BATMAN MOVIE

Funny, sarcastic and taking jabs at the Dark Knight is the best way to describe this Lego Batman Adventure. Looking beyond the cute lego design of the movie, this kids movie will appeal to adults as well. It has a punchline joke at every turn and mocks Batman’s life and decisions in a way that will have you laughing out loud a lot.

12.

MONSTERS INC.

What if the scary monsters that frighten children aren’t bad. What if it's just their job to do that? What if, in fact they are afraid of the children? All these ideas are explored in this fun-filled animated movie, Monsters inc. The movie brings with it super cute visuals and jokes for kids and adults alike. A great watch on a lazy Sunday afternoon.

KUNG FU PANDA

Before Po achieved inner peace, and before he became the legendary dragon warrior he was a far panda who made noodle soup. The story of Kung Fu Panda is one we can all relate to. It’s the story of someone who wants to achieve his dream no matter what others tell him. He finds a way to push through and when he is down and out, his friends step in to help him make the journey. If there is one movie that will make you laugh out loud and bring tears to your eyes, it is Kung Fu Panda.

14.

THE LION KING

No animated movie list is complete without the Lion King. The movie is a classic and rightfully so. It taught us not to worry about a thing with Hakuna Matata and is a coming of age movie for anyone getting ready to face the world. It doesn’t matter if you are the son of a king. What matters is whether you are prepared to do the right thing. That’s the lesson the movie teaches and is a must-watch for every generation.

BATMAN: MASK OF THE PHANTASM

If you were a kid in the early ’90s then you undoubtedly have fond memories of Batman: The Animated Series. Batman: Mask of the Phantasm takes the same formula, cast of voice actors and style and presents it to viewers in the form of a feature-length film. A new villain is threatening Gotham City and it is up to the caped crusader, to save the day!
