Are cartoons only for babies? Oh no! No way! We completely disagree with this opinion. We firmly believe that only those who see only the surface and are not able to understand the full depth of animated films can think this way. To prove it, we’ve prepared a list of breathtaking and exciting animation movies. They will surely break even the most callous heart.
1. Spirited Away (2001)
A magical story written and directed by world-known Hayao Miyazaki, one of the best Japanese animators, filmmakers, screenwriters, authors, and manga artists. Spirited Away tells the story of Chihiro Ogino (Hiiragi), a 10-year-old girl who, whose family moved to the suburbs. Here she enters the world of Kami (spirits) of Japanese Shinto folklore, a world ruled by gods, witches, and spirits. After her parents are turned into pigs by the witch Yubaba (Natsuki), Chihiro begins to work in Yubaba’s bathhouse to find a way to free herself and her parents and return to the human world.
2. Finding Nemo (2003)
An instructive story that tells about an overprotective clownfish named Marlin, whose son is unexpectedly captured in the Great Barrier Reef and taken to Sydney. To find Nemo, Marlin along with a regal blue tang named Dory sets out on a dangerous journey. Along the way, Marlin learns to take risks and comes to terms with Nemo taking care of himself.
3. How to Train Your Dragon (2010)
Appearances can be deceptive. That’s what this movie proves. We always imagine dragons as horrifying creatures with no mercy. And that’s what a hapless young Viking, Hiccup, believed for many years. He aspired to follow his tribe’s tradition of becoming a dragon slayer. After finally capturing his first dragon, a Night Fury, and with his chance at last of gaining the tribe’s acceptance, he finds that he no longer wants to kill the dragon and instead befriends it. He learns there may be more to the creatures than he assumed.
4. Mulan (1998)
This is a story about an incredibly brave and strong girl, Mulan. The film’s plot takes place in China during the Han dynasty. To save her father Fa Zhou from death in the army, a young maiden Fa Mulan secretly goes in his place during a general conscription to counter a Hun invasion. Under the command of Captain Li Shang, she and her fellow recruits Yao, Ling, and Chien-Po gradually become trained warriors. Mulan becomes one of China’s greatest heroines in the process.
5. Alice in Wonderland (1951)
In 1951, the first successful attempt was made to adapt Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and create an animated movie. Chasing after the White Rabbit, Alice falls down the rabbit hole into the topsy-turvy alternate world of Wonderland. Alice grows and shrinks after following the instructions of a haughty caterpillar, attends a “Very Merry Unbirthday” party in the garden of the Mad Hatter and the March Hare, stands in awe as the Cheshire Cat spouts philosophy, listens in rapt attention as Tweedledum and Tweedledee relate the story of the Walrus and the, and closes out her day with a hectic croquet game at the home of the Red Queen. Will she get home?
This is just a tiny part of the whole list of amazing animated movies we would like to tell you about. Stay tuned!
